The Night


Written by Raiya for the 100 word challenge

So, I was walking home from my best friend, Emma’s house and suddenly got a strange phone call. It was anonymous so, I of course, answered it! I said in a cheery tone,” Hi! This is Lily Lewis how may I help you?” Everything stopped and the phone replied in a weird voice,” I seeeeeee you.” I laughed. “Emma is this you?” It replied,” No, it’s me……your soon to be kidnapper!” I ran. I don’t know why but I just did. Until I accidently ran into a pole, tape over my mouth, put in a sack, knocked Unconscious……….. 


  1. Hello Raiya,

    What a frightening experience!

    To receive an anonymous call threatening kidnap then to have it happen would be terrifying. Knocking yourself out by running into a pole would mean at some time you would wake to find yourself in a sack or some other possibly dangerous situation.

    Your story could be the beginning of a much longer story as readers discover whether you survive, who was the kidnapper and why this happened.

    Keep writing!

  2. Oh my goodness, Raija! What a scary story.

    Now I want to know what happened next and why you were even kidnapped in the first place? I can imagine why you thought it was just your friend calling you at first.

    Well done for building the suspense!
