Escape from Ghostland By Luciana Bella
It all started out as a normal day on October 30 for Jamie. She was so excited because Halloween was almost here. As Jamie sat in her kitchen eating breakfast, she heard someone singing at the door. When she opened the door, she saw a strange looking person standing there. "Who are you?" Jamie nervously asked "I'm Elvis, and I want to eat breakfast with you," the man said. Jamie yelled "You're not Elvis!" The man yelled back, "Just kidding! I'm Jack, the Mean Joking Ghost, and I just escaped from Ghostland!" He turned himself into a big red vicious monster. Jamie jumped and ran back into the house. She was so scared she forgot to close the door, and Jack came running in behind her. Jack told Jamie he needed to hold on to her hand so he could become human, and she would turn into a ghost. Jamie didn't know what to do, so she threw her bowl of cereal at him. But, nothing happened; the bowl went right through Jack.
Meanwhile back at Ghostland, Cotton Candy, the goddess of the land, saw that Jamie was in trouble. She knew Jamie needed help, so Cotton Candy ran to the Ghost God and asked if she could leave to go down to Earth to help Jamie. The Ghost God shouted "NO!" Cotton Candy knew she couldn't give up, so when nobody was looking, she fled down to earth. But the Ghost God saw what Cotton Candy was up to and used a magical shield to stop her from going down to Earth.
Jamie tried to run away, but Jack followed. Jamie couldn't get away; she was stuck with Jack. She had to sleep with a ghost in the house, so Jamie was terrified! She tried to stay up, but every minute her eyes kept closing, so she made herself coffee to stay awake. After drinking her coffee she was wide awake but still so scared. Just then Jamie saw something moving. She was so scared that she almost screamed! Instead she covered her mouth, hid underneath the blankets, and soon feel asleep. After seeing what was going on, Ghost God decided to free Cotton Candy and let her help Jamie.
When Jamie woke up, it was Halloween, and Cotton Candy appeared before her with a smile. "I can help you, Jamie," she said. Jamie felt a little relief, but she was still scared. She asked, "Well what do I do?" Cotton Candy whispered into her ear, "You have to tell him you are not afraid of him." Just then, Jack flew into the room, knocking everything down. Jack was scarier and bigger then before and screamed at Jamie, "GIVE ME YOUR HAND SO I CAN BECOME HUMAN, OR YOU'LL PAY!" Jamie gulped and then shouted back, "I'M NOT AFRAID OF YOU, JACK!" "Huh?" Jack asked, seeming so confused. Cotton Candy tapped on Jack's shoulde.r "You don't have to be so mean, Jack; she didn't do anything to you! If you want to be a human, you have to ask Ghost God! Don't scare an innocent girl." Jack, feeling very embarrassed, agreed with Cotton Candy, and turned to Jamie. He said how sorry he was and how just wanted to be human. Jamie took a deep breath, said she forgave him and said it would be a Halloween she would never forget!
