Today was an ordinary day for Thomas Hogark. Thomas was 14 years old, was in 8th grade, lived in Oklahoma, and had 1 sister who was 4 and had a mom and a dad. The sister's name was Isabella, the dads name was Ian, and the mom's name was Kelly. They lived out in the woods with a couple neighbors. One neighbor was an old couple, another one was a husband and wife with no kids, and the last house was another family with 7 children. All girls! Thomas just got on the bus and was about to go onto Instagram when all of a sudden a man jumped out onto the road, and screamed "Get out of here! The witch is going to eat all of us! She is coming to get us at 3:00 AM tonight!" The man was about 5'11 and had a dark brown hair. All of the kids started to scream in unison. The first one to get off the bus was a girl in Thomas's grade. Then, all of the students from 5th-9th, started to get off the bus also. Thomas ran back to his house and saw his mom,dad, and the baby sister getting into the car and driving off without him. Thomas then started to cry. He had no form of transportation to get out of the woods, a little bread, and a pack of water. He started to panic, but he managed to calm himself down by doing some deep breaths. He needed to get out fast! He had to get a plan. He started to think of one, how he was going to walk into town and find some adults who can care for him, when all of a sudden he heard knocking at his front door. At first he thought his parents had come back for him. When he opened the door he thought he saw his sister, but then it transformed into... A witch! The witch was green, had pimples all over her nose, a cat, broom, and ingredients for her soup. He started to scream when he remembered about his neighbors. He checked the old couple that lived there. No one there. He checked the family no one there. Finally, with all hope gone, he checked the couple. He found them lying in a room with their eyes gone, and the husband's ears gone. He started to cry some more. He knew that couple since the day the moved, and now they were dead. He checked from outside of the house to see if the witch was still in his house, and she still was. She was checking his room. Now was his chance! he quickly scampered into his house got some bread, water, and his phone and portable phone charger. Quietly, he went off on his journey to outrun the witch, and hopefully find his family who ditched him for their safety. Thomas was about 60 miles away from Tulsa and he ate his bread, had $100, and about 16 bottles of water left. It was starting to get cold and dark out, when he saw a motel saying, "Only $25 a stay, has an indoor pool, and air conditioning!" Thomas walked in, payed his $25, and went to his room. When he first opened the door he excepted termites to be everywhere, the sheets to be torn, and the room to smell like smoke. But, what he got was way better. He got a room that was like what a king sleeps in. He was astonished. He didn't expect this for $25! He slept, took a shower, and checked out. He was starting to walk when he thought he heard someone calling his name. He saw a girl who was about 13 years old, and decided to go to her. She told him her name was Natalie, she was 13, and she lived near Norman. Natalie asked him what he was doing and he told her the whole story. That was almost the same scenario for Natalie, expect she was getting chased by skeletons. She had $200 dollars, a whole 24 pack of Dr. Pepper, and some Cheerio's. Thomas decided he shall go own with Natalie. They were starting to head toward Tulsa, when all of a sudden it started to rain. Thankfully, there was a bridge close by so they can hide under it until it passes. Thomas slept, while Natalie was basically doing nothing. All of sudden, she got a great idea. She told Thomas that her great idea was for them to go on alone for the rest of their lives, maybe join a circus, and then for them to get married! Thomas thought it was a terrible idea. He wanted to find his family and tell them how dumb that idea was. The rain finally stopped. They went back on for their journey. They saw a sign for Tulsa and they high-fived each other. Abruptly someone in the air started to cackle. Thomas for sure knew who it was. He told Natalie to take cover while he dealt with her. The witch suddenly started to fire skeletons at Thomas. Thomas decided to block them with his water, which was a great idea, until the container broke. The witch started to come toward Thomas. Thomas started to panic. He then saw Natalie coming out with her Dr.Pepper and she then threw it into the air, and it splahed into the witch. They had done it! They were all happy until they saw the skeleton army coming toward them. They had defeated the witch. Will they now defend off the army of skeletons, or will they have to suffer the consequences.
