Artemis threw down his book in disgust. His latest homework assignment had been to read a scary story. He had chosen to read “Wait for me by Moonlight”. He had found 12 mistakes that the main character,Cydna, had made in the first chapter alone. He felt like e-mailing the author and reprimanding him for writing such a bad story. He flipped through the rest of the book. Nothing interesting.
Artemis got up and left his study. He would torture himself later. As he left, he noticed another book on the end of his table. It was titled “How to be a Vampire”. Intrigued, he opened it up. The first line was “A world of power and beauty awaits…”. The rest was blank. Confused, Artemis flipped through the rest. Blank. Suddenly, he noticed some words scrawled in spidery handwriting at the bottom of the page. They said “To discover the secret, chant three times: I want, I do, I kill”. Eerie, Artemis thought.
Throughout the whole day, all Artemis could think of was the book. He knew he had to tell somebody, but no one would believe him. He began to get desperate. He snuck into Beckett’s room, and told it to one of his stuffed animals; a pink bunny. That wasn’t enough. Artemis wrote it in an e-mail, sent it to another computer, ran to that computer, as fast as he could, and once there, read it and deleted it. That wasn’t enough either. He picked up the book again.
“D’arvit.” He gasped, exasperated. He couldn’t take it anymore.
“I want, I do, I kill. I want, I do, I kill.” Suddenly, there was a cold wind, and then nothing. Butler left the window open again, Artemis mused. The book was still blank. Artemis threw it down next to”Wait for me by Moonlight.” Another failure. Well, at least that had WORDS!
