    Mibba’s Round Robin Horror Story


    This Halloween, we’re inviting all Mibbians to come together in round-robin style to tell a tale of terrifying proportions! Starting from a beginning paragraph, we’re looking for you guys to collaborate together to tell a horror story that spans the entire site. The concept is simple - anybody who wants to join in posts a sentence that follows on from the post before to further the story. By October 31st, this thread should tell a spooky story for the entire site to enjoy!

    Posts can go in any direction, and cliffhangers or plot twists are most welcome! You can post more than once, but please be mindful not to double-post - this is collaborative!

    Guidelines:
    • Posts should be in a continuous narrative - no jumping back or forward in time!
    • All posts should be in past tense
    • All posts should be in third-person narrative
    • Follow on directly from the post before you

    Other than the occasional crunch of leaves underfoot, the forest was entirely silent. In an inky-black sky, the moon watched the seven as they trod over discarded branches and gnarled tree-roots, being careful to watch their footing as they went. The trees themselves - hulking, mute figures stark against the icy paleness of the moon - stretched endlessly into the sky and seemed to close in on the group, leaving even the bravest feeling as small as a mouse.

    It had been a joke, to begin with. Spend an evening in the haunted forest on the outskirts of town - an invite extended to the entirety of the Class of 2018, one last childish act of rebellion before they were forced to grow up and go away for college. Only seven had turned up that evening and only seven trudged through the darkness warily, any cockiness from the days beforehand flickering like a candle in a strong wind.

    Then, all of a sudden, the light from the torch died and plunged them into eerie darkness.

    He made sure to keep himself quiet and hidden as he walked closer to the young girl that looked like she was terrified out of her mind. But this was what he enjoyed doing. He had to keep it together or else risk getting caught, and he didn't want that.

    Sneaking closer under the shadow of the treeline, he counted. One, two, three, four girls and one, two, three boys. He could pick them off easily, one by one, until the last remaining figure had been reduced to a quivering wreck. Licking his lips in anticipation, he melted back into the shadows, watching for his opportunity to strike.

    He had his eyes set on a girl who couldn't be much older than 19 and who seemed to have no idea what was going on. She was either drunk or high, he couldn't be sure from so far away. But that's the girl he wanted and he would do anything to get her. He licked his lips...The game was just about to start. These students had no idea what they were in for.

    His steps were steady and even though he was wearing his black leather boots that were quite heavy, he didn't make any noise. He was as silent as a statue, moving and yet, no noise could be heard. His feet were used to those type of boots. Even if others would have find it difficult to walk at ease, he could easily lift his feet of the ground and walk or run as he liked. It wasn't the first time he was doing something like this but every time seemed to be the first for him. The excitement in his eyes and the joy in his heart was like no other.

    "Stupid piece of junk," one of the boys said, thumping the flashlight against his hand in a futile attempt to revive it. He began cursing loudly.
    "Relax, man," one of his friends said, "probably just needs new batteries, which I actually thought to bring. Give it."
    One of the girls was crying and starting to hyperventilate. "Guys let's just please get out of here and go home. This isn't fun anymore." Something, presumably the cold wind that blew through the trees, rattled some nearby leaves, and she went further into hysterics. "I hear something! I swear I hear something! Oh my God! Oh my God!"
