The Night Walk
by Alyssa, eleventh grade writer
It’s dark now, and you’re so cold that you’ve gotten to the point where you can’t feel your toes. You regret not listening to your mom when she told you that’s its almost dark and a little late for a walk, but you’re stubborn and new to this small town and you wanted to get familiar with the place. You pull your cell phone from your jacket pocket and hold it high in the air, hoping that you’ll at least get one bar of cell reception. You wish your mom had mentioned that this town is too desolate to receive cell reception, you think to yourself. Just then you see a light flash, and it’s coming from a small house about thirty feet up the road, but just to your left is another road leading a different direction. You’re unsure where to go.
If you want to go the small house go to section B.
If you want to turn left go to section C.

Paths of Confusion
by John, eleventh grade student
As it starts to get dark, you are walking through the street. You’re headed to your friends house to stay the over the night. While walking, the warm sun begins to set, and the luminous whole moon arises. It starts to get chilly, and you see the frozen vapors release into the air as you heavily breathe. You now arrive at two paths: the usual short cut you take into the alley and the long road that leads to your friends’ house. Which do you take?
If you choose to take the long road go to Section B. If you decide to take the short cut go to Section C.
