The Picture of Dorian Gray

My best scene is when Dorian Gray stabbed Basil Hallward so far in the book. Because I didn't expect this move from him. He was underhanded and I believe in the future he will repent it.

Scary story

  I was listening to music in my castle bedroom when I heard a loud noise. From the beginning I didn't want to we stay there for the night. I knew my parents were in the living room and they were watching television.
  I took my mobile phone and turned on the flashlight to go to see what was happening. When I was climbing the stairs, suddenly I started to hear strange noises. The wind was howling, the gates were creaking and mice were squeaking. I screamed, I was terrified but I wanted to see what it was.
  Suddenly I saw someone with a sheet like a ghost. He started to hunt me. I ran to my castle bedroom as fast I could. I saw my brother inside the sheet to haunt me. He had downloaded scary and strange noises on his mobile to terrify me.

A Scary Story...

            I was listening to music in my castle bedroom when  I heard a strange noise. My parents had  rented rooms in the local castle so we could spend some days living in a castle.
          Suddenly I heard creepy sounds coming from upstairs. I was really scared. I didn't know what was making the weird noise and my heart was beating fast.
          I couldn't call my parents as they were watching TV in another room of the castle. A few minutes later I decided to investigate what the noise was upstairs. As I was walking up the dark  and lonely staircase I heard the noise again and this time was louder and closer to me.
            When I got to the top of the stairs my sister jumped out and frightened me so much to make me scream loud. She told me  that she was playing a joke on me . That time I was so annoyed and angry with my sister but I was more relaxed that was not a ghost.

Writing: A scary story

It was Sunday afternoon when we arrived at my friend's hotel who I had known since from high school in Heraklion. That hotel was so big and his project was "a castle night" which was on the restaurant and it was nice with music. dancing and delicious foods, like "king burger"
  After the restaurant, at midnight we went to our rooms to sleep. I was listening to music in my castle bedroom when I heard a strange noise which was coming from the corridor. I was really scared and I walked to the door slowly to see what it was but I didn't see anything. I wanted to speak to my parents but they were watching TV.
  I was saying " Finally I go out there to see what it is" and I went to the corridor. One minute later my brother went from a dark side and scared me. I laughed because I was scared  with my brother and I thought that a ghost was in the corridor.

A Scary Story...

   I was listening to music in my castle bedroom when I heard a strange noise. Me and my family had rented rooms in a castle, to stay there for our holidays. The castle was too big and each of us had his own huge bedroom. The first night, while my parents had gone to their bedroom, I was feeling lonely. The howl castle was dark and the wind, outside, was howling.
   Suddenly, my bedroom lights went out. I was frightened. I couldn't call my parents as they were on the upper levels. I turned the lights on and I continued listening to music. A few minutes later it happened again. But that time, I also heard some weird footsteps coming from upstairs. First I thought that my brother was walking , but then I realised that he was sleeping on the lower levels. I was really scared.
   A bit later, I decided to go upstairs, to find who was caused all these strange things. My heart was beating louder and louder as I was climbing the stairs. Just then, I heard something strange, like a wolf. Then I started climbing faster and faster, when I saw my dog. He was barking , because he hurt  his knee. I called my mother and we took him to the vet.
   Two hours later, we came back home. I was very tired and upset about everything happened that night. But I was also happy, because my dog was healthy. It was an exhausting night. Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για scottish castlesA
