A TERRIBLE NIGHT by José Antonio Cárdenas
This story happened fifty years ago when a family was having dinner. The father came from his job (he was a policeman) and he had a present for his children. The present was a statue made in India. The father said to them: “Jack, Julie, this is for you, I saw it in the street.” The children put it in a fcupboard because they didn’t like it.
When it was night, the family went to bed, and they thought that the day had been normal… This was a mistake.
At twelve o’clock, the statue’s eyes began to shine and it began to ascend on the air. It went towards Jake’s bedroom. He got up because he heard a noise. Then, he felt a something weird behind him.
Before he could see it, the statue cut his head off with its arm. The blood splashed all the bedroom.
After this murder, the statue went to Julie’s bedroom. It broke the door with its hand and it threw a knife to Julie’s head. She died immediately.
The parents were sleeping and they didn’t hear anything. Suddenly, the wife got up because she was thirsty. She was going to the kitchen, but she saw Julie’s corpse and Jack’s corpse. She shouted and she woke up his husband. He, scared, ran towards his wife.
When he arrived, he saw that the statue had beheaded his wife with its sword. The man, angry and scared, took his gun and he shot the statue, but it didn’t die. Finally, the statue took the man and it broke him into two parts.
The blood flooded the house.
This is the end of this story… but tonight the same could happen you same…
