The Camping Trip
Mikie, Age 12, Merced, CA
It has been seen many times, and it has scared many people. It has even been known to kill people. It has changed the lives of many. It was a dare that made these boys go out to Death Woods and see it. It changed their lives forever.
One day at a kids' party a couple of boys were playing truth or dare. It was Luke's turn to receive a dare. The other boy sat there for a little while, thinking.
“Okay, I’ve got it, I dare you and four friends to go to Death Woods and videotape the California Werewolf, and you will have to camp here for three days.”
“Okay I’ll do it and I'll pick Kolby, Mikie, Justin, and Andrew to go with me.”
“Okay,” they all said.
“Have no fear Luke,” said Andrew.
The next day the boys packed up all of their stuff and left their house for Death Woods. Everyone watched as the boys left.
“You think they’ll be okay?” asked one of the boys from the party.
“Yeah they’ll be okay,” said one of the other kids.
The boys got there and unpacked their things and settled in. Then Luke said, “This isn’t going to be so bad.”
“Yeah this won’t be so bad,” said Matt.
“Yeah, it’ll be a cinch,” said Justin.
“Hey, you never know, this could end up very badly,” said Mikie.
“Yeah right, this thing probably isn’t even real,” said Kolby.
They finally got settled in, and then it was nightfall. Then Matt said, “Hey let's go for a hike in the woods and get eaten, oh I mean, um “refreshed” yeah, from um, setting up the tents, yeah.”
Everybody looked at him strangely then everyone said, “Okay.” So they got ready and went for a hike. While they were out there they heard strange noises but they didn’t think anything of them.
They get back to the camp and make a campfire. They gather around the campfire roasting marshmallows, when there is a rumble in the bushes. He walks cautiously to the bushes, and then it rumbles again. He slowly checks over the bushes.
“Hey you okay Andrew?” There is no answer.
“Andrew?” Matt says again there was still no answer. Matt goes behind the bushes and sees a pool full of blood, and then he sees a leg.
“Hey guys you might want to see this.”
“Oh my gosh,” they all say.
"YIyiyiyiyi!!!!" yells a sound really close to them.
“I think we should go back into the tent,” said Mikie.
“Yeah, that might be a good idea!” says Kolby.
The sound gets closer and closer then a shadow appears from outside the tent. Then the monster starts shaking the tent. It tears through, and all of the boys run out of the tent and stare at the monster, its black fur all over its body, stalling at least 8 feet tall.
The boys run towards the town never looking back or even thinking about looking back. When they finally get to their house their parents are there and say “you’re a little early.” Then Matt says, “We saw the monster and it ate Andrew.”
No one has never gone back to Death Woods!
