Creepy House

Hi our names are Charli and Emmalee, and we are going to write the first chapter of our story. We would like you to help us with the rest of the story. After every chapter we let you, the reader, choose what happens next.

The Creepy House

One day three girls, called Ruby, Bobbie and Molly, went to the park and they saw a gleaming window in the distance, because there was a light twitching behind it. The window was in an old and crooked house.  Molly told them that they should check the house out, but the others didn’t want to. Molly convinced them by calling them chickens.  

They ended up creeping towards the house and knocking on the door. The house looked abandoned. They went in without anyone answering the door. The door slammed behind them. They heard a mysterious banging coming from upstairs.


  1. I really like your choice of vocabulary but starting your sentences with 'the' and 'they' can make it a bit boring and repetitive. Why don't you start with an adverb i.e. 'Nervously, Molly opened the door using the rusty handle. OR you could change the order of your sentence. i.e. instead of 'They went in without anyone answering the door.' you could have 'Without anyone answering the door, they went in.'

  2. Well done girls. can't wait to find out what happens next.

  3. I love creepy stories and I cannot wait to read on...hurry, please!!

    May I suggest you change your story opener. 'One day' is not accurate for a creepy story!


  4. I can't wait to find out what happens next as well. I agree with Mrs V-K, starting your sentences with different words than They and The would make it more interesting to read. Plus a little more description so I can get a better picture of the scene in my head. Maybe before they hear the sound you could have described what the inside of the house was like...?
    I hope they find a cat next.

  5. Good !! . Megan T
