Death night.

Death night.

Danny Briden

Halloween night. Or as we call it immortal night in my town. It’s illegal to have Halloween in our town and there are some kids who won’t even be able to experience it but how did it start. Let’s go back 5 years ago. All the little kids were trick or treating. But on the road, there was 10-year-old Luke Rockman. He had broken his neck and was dead. No one knew how he died but he did. A big group of people sat there as his hysterical parents called the ambulance. But suddenly he stood up. His head was tilting around and suddenly it flopped down. He started running around with his head on the back as he started to cry. He ran around as the ambulance pulled in. The doctors chased him until he ran into the back of the ambulance and they took off. That was the last I have seen of him. The next year a devastating car crash took place leaving a man with his spine sticking out of his back. And yet he woke up screaming and running around. The same thing happened. Still, only a small amount of people have seen these events and everyone just thought it was a legend. But this year not as many kids roamed the streets. Soon enough this day became illegal in our state. Many people still died but it was through sickness and they never felt much pain. Still many died more painful deaths and you can feel everything. I would know because I was one of those people. I just wanted a snack. I went to the store and suddenly I was shot in the neck. I couldn’t breathe and suddenly I passed out. When I woke up I didn’t know where I was. I saw dry blood sticking from my neck. I couldn’t breathe still but I couldn’t die. I was in a white room. When I turned my head there were two dead bodies staring back at me. I couldn’t speak though but I suddenly got up. Looking around I saw nothing else. No door, no window, no escape. Suddenly part of the white room opened. Two men in doctor suits walked out. “The test will begin now,” the tall one said, “We know all of you are alive.” The two people next to me opened their eyes. Then I realized, all this time our town was just a test. Nothing was real.
