what are you going to write about in your story? Jack asked Tom.
I don´t know, said Tom.It´s difficult for me to think of a scary story.I´m not frightened of anything!What
can I write about?

"Tom, you can write about your sister.She´s very scary,especially in the morning!"

"No,she isn´t,Danny!Mmm...maybe I can write about my dog,Rex.He´s very scary! The postman is frightened of Rex!"

"Danny! We can´t write about Tom´s sister or his dog! We must write about something really scary.

Jack thought for a moment. I don´t know what we can write about, he said.What are we going to do?

Tom and Jack thought for a moment.

"We must find a haunted house or a witch"

"I don´t know any witches.Mrs Martin lives next door to me and she´s very strange.But I don´t think she´s a witch!"

"No problem.We´ll put pillows in our beds and they´ll think that we´re sleeping!"

OK.Let´s meet outside the cemetery before midnight tomorrow and we´ll try to find something scary-maybe a ghost! said Jack.

The next night,at 11.45,Jack,Tom and Dannynwere in the street outside the cementery.It was very dark and there weren´t any lights in the houses.The boys looked through the gates of the cementery.

"What do we do now? What´s your plan,Jack?"

Jack didn´t have a plan, I don´t know, he said.Let´s wait ten minutes.Maybe I´ll think of something.Then we´ll go into the cementery.
The moon appeared from behind a cloud and the boys saw strange figures near the gates.Jack tried to be brave.There´s nothing to be frightened of, he thought.It´s only a cementery, with lots of trees,grass,long paths and graves...

Phew!said Jack.You frightened me!Don´t do that again!
Are you frightened,Tom? asked Danny.
No,I´m not,answered Tom.Why?
Because I can see something in the trees! said Danny.

"Where? I can´t see anything!"

"There,in the tree near the big grave!Something is moving.Can you see it?It´s got very big,bright eyes!"

"Danny´s right!There´s something in the tree!And look!It´s coming towards us!"

We´re being stupid,said Jack.There´s nothing to be frightened of,OK?
OK,said Tom and Danny.

doesn´t come back and haunt us.So it´s probably.OK in the cementery."

"Five minutes,I think"

But I´m frightened.Maybe I´ll see a ghost.What will I do?

"Shout loudly and run very quickly!said Jack with a smile."
