doing is offering one line to start off with:
The wooden floorboards creaked as he took a step forward. . .
By Lizabeth S. Tucker
The wooden floorboards creaked as he took a step forward. Chet froze, waiting for the noise to stop. His breath caught in his chest as he resumed edging forward. His eyes darted around the room as he
continued. "G-Gage? This isn't funny. C'mon, man, answer me!"
He jumped as he was suddenly grabbed from behind. He spun around to see a grinning Johnny Gage standing behind him, decked in fake spider webs and filmy black and grey clothing. Chet clutched at his
chest. "Are you trying to give me a heart attack?"
"What? I thought you liked haunted houses," Johnny quipped as he walked alongside his friend.
"I've gotta admit, this is a cool one. Chris' school will make a mint off of this year's Halloween fest."
