Rasky's Scary Halloween Stories



Guests

Rick, Bobbie and Rasky were on a trip to visit Rick's mother
Usually they arrived in time for supper
But they had gotten a late start, and now it was getting dark
So they decided to look for a place to stay overnight and go on in the morning

Just off the road, they saw a small house in the woods
"Maybe they rent rooms," Bobbie said
So they stopped to ask

An elderly man and woman came to the door
They didn't rent rooms, they said
But they would be glad to have them stay overnight as their guests
They had plenty of room, and they would enjoy the company
The old woman made coffee and brought out some cake
The four of them talked for awhile
Then Rick, Bobbie and Rasky were taken to their room
They again explained that they wanted to pay for this
The old man said he would not accept any money

Rick, Bobbie and Rasky got up early the next morning before their hosts had awakened
They saw a table near the front door
They left an envelope with some money in it for the room
Then they went on to the next town

They stopped in a restaurant and had breakfast
When they told the owner where they had stayed, he was shocked
"That can't be," he said
"That house burned to the ground
The man and the woman who lived there died in the fire"

Rick, Bobbie and Rasky could not believe it
So they went back to the house
Only now there was no house
All they found was a burned-out shell

They stood staring at the ruins trying to understand what had happened
Then Bobbie screamed
In the rubble was a badly burned table, like the one they had seen by the front door

On The Table Was The Envelope They Had Left That Morning

It Was Halloween

Jerry and Ted quietly unhinged the gate of Grandpa Allen's fence
The two brothers carefully walked down the dirt path towards the spooky house
When they reached the house they saw a sign that read "Grandpa's House of Horrors"

What a joke the boys thought
They didn't know how wrong they really were
The boys walked up the steps to the door
The boards groaned, and Jerry jumped
"Don't be such a wussy," Ted said, making fun of his brother

They proceeded on
When they reached the porch they saw a black cat
Ted bent down to pet it but it hissed and ran away at high speed
Ted scrambled back to Jerry
"And you were sayin' I was a wussy", Said Jerry
"Shut up loser" Ted replied

Jerry then slowly went up to the door and reached out to the handle
The door opened before Jerry touched it
The boys looked at each other uneasily
The kids peeked inside
Nothing much to be afraid of
Grandpa had put up a plastic skeleton and a few rubber bats
They crept in

Grandpa was still in the process of putting up the last of the rubber bats in the kitchen
He came down from his stool to see how they looked
As soon as he did, a black gloved hand came over his face
He struggled around but the hand wouldn't let go... he blacked out

The boys heard some struggling around in the kitchen
They ran in to surprise their grandfather
When they made it to the kitchen nobody was there

They heard some whispering in the living room
The boys followed the sound and peeked around the corner
There were two men whispering in the middle of the room
Their skin was pale as a ghost's

Ted stepped quietly into the room
The floor creaked and the two men spun around
The bigger one pointed at the two kids
The msyterious men started running at Jerry and Ted
The boys turned to run but they weren't fast enough
The men grabbed them
Jerry felt wierd all of a sudden, and looked down
To his surprise, he found that they were no longer standing!
They were floating in the air!

Ted took Jerry's shoulder and turned him around
Suddenly, another man came into the room
He had only one black glove on, and slowly opened his mouth
His teeth were an inch long!
The boys screamed, and wriggled out of the 2 mens' grasp

They ran as fast as they could
Out the door, through the gate and down the road
The next day the boys went back to investigate
They searched the entire house but no one was there

Grandpa Was Gone

There was an old woman who had no family still living
Her only friend was a little black and white dog named Rasky
He went everywhere with her - with one exception
Rasky loved the fireplace in winter
After the old woman went to bed
Rasky would sometimes go and lie in front of the warm coals
Usually though, Rasky slept at the very edge of the bed on a throw rug

The woman wouldn't allow Rasky on the bed with her
When she became frightened or had a nightmare
She would put her hand down to Rasky and he would lick it reassuringly

One night the woman was reading her newspaper just before going to sleep
She shivered and pulled the comforter up around her
She had read that a mental patient had wandered off from a nearby hospital
No one knew if the patient was dangerous or not
He was a suspect in the murders of several women who had lived alone

The woman turned out the lights and tried to sleep
She was frightened, and tossed and turned fitfully
Finally, she reached down to where Rasky slept
Sure enough, a warm, wet tongue began to lick her hand
The woman felt reassured and safe
She left her hand dangling off the bed as she turned and settled in comfortably
She opened her eyes for a moment and looked through the open door into the living room

In front of the fireplace, sat Rasky
He was gazing intently at the coals and wagging his tail

And Down Beside The Bed Someone Or Something Was Still Licking Her Hand

One time there was a little girl whose grandfather had just died
She had loved her grandfather very much and missed him a great deal
He was buried in a cemetery that was just a few hundred yards from her house
She could see his grave every evening at sunset
She could see it when she looked out her bedroom window

One night her parents were going out and the babysitter hadn't arrived yet
They knew she was a very reliable babysitter
She would probably arrive in just a few minutes
They kissed the girl goodbye and drive off

Hours passed and the babysitter had not yet come
The girl began to feel afraid

A storm was brewing outside
Thunder and lightning moved closer and closer to the house as the wind started howling
Suddenly there was a bright flash of lightning without any sound
The power in the house went off, leaving the girl in total darkness
The wind blew the trees around and branches broke off
They crashed against the house and fell to the ground
Alone in the dark, the girl became very scared

The Phone Rang

The girl went to the phone, hoping it was her parents
She said hello, and waited
The line seemed dead
Then, sounding so very far away, a voice came over the phone

It Belonged To Her Grandfather

"Don't be afraid, honey
There's nothing to fear
You'll be safe in the house
The storm will pass over"

Then The Phone Went Deathly Silent

The girl went to bed, calm and happy
She slept well in spite of the raging storm

The parents came home and found their daughter asleep
Unwilling to wake her, they left their questions until the morning
They were horrified when the babysitter called the next morning
She explained that she had been in a wreck at the leading edge of the storm
She was unhurt, but what had their daughter done alone in the house?

When they woke her, she told them what had happened
They didn't believe her
She smiled and pointed out her window to what she had seen the night before

The phone line from the house was intact out to the first pole
But it was broken by fallen limbs and the cable drooped into the cemetery

The End Of The Broken Line Lay Across Her Grandfather's Grave

As Jim Brand lay dying, his wife left him with his nurse
She went into the next room to rest
She sat in the dark staring into the night
Suddenly Mrs. Brand saw headlights come rapidly up the driveway

"Oh, no," she thought. "I don't want visitors now, not now"
But it wasn't a car bringing a visitor
It was an old hearse with maybe a half dozen small men hanging from the sides
At least, that's what it looked like

The hearse screeched to a stop
The men jumped off and stared up at her
Their eyes glowing with a soft, yellow light, like cats' eyes
She watched with horror as they disappeared into the house

An instant later they were back, lifting something into the hearse
Then they drove off at high speed
The car's wheels squealed, the gravel in the driveway flying in all directions

At That Very Moment, The Nurse Came In To Say That Jim Brand Had Died

While Rick slept, a spider crawled across his face
It stopped for several minutes on his left cheek, then went on it's way

"What is that red spot on my cheek?" Rick asked his mother the next morning

"It looks like a spider bite," his mother said
"It will go away
Just don't scratch it"

Soon the small red spot grew into a small red boil
"Look at it now," Rick said
"It's getting bigger
It's sore"

"That sometimes happens," his mother said
"It's coming to a head"

In a few days the boil was even larger
"Look at it now," Rick said
"It hurts and it's ugly"

"We'll have the doctor look at it," his mother said
"Maybe it's infected"
But the doctor could not see Rick until the next day

That night Rick took a hot bath
As he soaked himself, the boil burst

Out Poured A Swarm Of Tiny Spiders From The Eggs
Their Mother Had Laid In Rick's Cheek

Bobbie hired a driver to take her to a small cottage in the country
She was going to stay there while her city apartment was being painted
The cottage stood alone, high on a cliff

It was a bleak and lonely place
Bobbie was glad she would only be there a few days
She told the driver when to return for her and watched him drive away
She felt suddenly alone and frightened

Though it was summer, the cottage felt cold and damp
Bobbie lit a fire in the fireplace
Then she looked around at the room
The few pieces of furniture that were in the room were shabby
The wall, covered with stained and peeling green wallpaper was even shabbier

Bobbie stared at the wall
Something seemed horribly wrong with it
Then she gasped
She could see right through it
There stood a murky forest
Weaving among the trees were figures
They were dancing, creeping and waving their arms

The scene disappeared as quickly as it had come
Bobbie tried to tell herself that what she had seen was only shadows from the fire
She looked at the wall again
She saw that the wallpaper had peeled even more, leaving great, gaping holes

That night Bobbie could not sleep
The wind blew strong and the flames danced eerily in the fireplace

There they were again!
Those creatures, through the wall, closer now
Creeping, moving their arms, beckoning to her
Bobbie watched in horror as they formed a circle and began a slow dance
The wind blew harder
It seemed to Bobbie that she heard a crying and a wailing
"We will meet very soon, Bobbie
We are coming for you"

Bobbie fell asleep at last
She dreamt of creatures creeping and wailing in the moonlight of a murky forest
The next morning, Bobbie saw that great strips of the wallpaper hung down in tatters

Bobbie stayed outside all day, and when darkness fell
She came in and lit a fire in the room
The seemed even colder than it had been before

The flames crept higher
The wall seemed to come alive with moving, creeping figures
They cried: "We will meet very soon, Bobbie
We are coming for you"

Bobbie got into bed, closed her eyes tight and covered her ears
But still she saw the creatures creeping closer and closer
Still she heard their chants--louder and louder
Bobbie huddled under the covers
She had never been so cold
She tried not to think of the wall with its moving, chanting creatures
Instead she forced herself to think of her cozy apartment in the city
It would be freshly painted and cheerful

Bobbie stole a quick look at the wall
The wallpaper was now in shreds
The creatures were still there
So close she could see their gray faces
With their glinty eyes, twisted mouths and crooked teeth

A crackling sound made Bobbie jump
Had a log snapped in the fire?
No, an arm, a creature's arm, was coming through the wall!
"Please, oh please, let morning come," she moaned

The night seemed endless and the wails and chants never ceased
Once she thought she felt something go tap, tap on her shoulder

At last it was morning
Soon the car came and Bobbie was driven back to the city

In front of her building, she paid the driver
She ran up the stairs to her apartment
She opened the door and stood frozen to the spot

There they were!
The creatures!
Dozens of them, creeping, moving toward her, waving their arms
Just before she fainted dead away
Bobbie saw them reach up and rip masks away from their faces

They reached for their back pockets
Suddenly, someone from behind her grabbed her neck

All Went Black
The Last Thing That Bobbie Saw Was
The Creatures Pull Out Knives And Stab Her Very Body
