The Work Itself
It was 2011, junior year, in IB Biology class when Mrs. Durkes was assigning lab groups. She made the fatal mistake of putting Roberta, Samantha, Chrissy, and Teeny into a group together. Each girl knew each other from middle school but had never really gotten the chance to actually get to know each other.
So the class went to their assigned lab stations and that’s when it all started. The fours girls had the absolute best time dissecting flowers and mushrooms for science. They were daring each other to eat the mushroom, Robert even ate a piece of the flower. There was no dare too big for her. After class was over, they all walked down to lunch together and made plans to hang out that weekend. The biology girls had no idea what they were getting into.
Roberta, Samantha, Chrissy, and Teeny decided to spend the night in Samantha’s tree house but they didn’t realize that the tree house was haunted. I mean, who had ever head of a haunted tree house? While the girls were lying in their sleeping bags gossiping, they heard a knock at the door. No one wanted to get up. It was so unexpected and terrifying. Finally Roberta got up because she couldn’t take the suspense anymore and had the constant need to prove how tough she was.
She answered the door. No one was there. The girls had no idea what to do. So naturally, all of them started screaming except for Roberta. Chrissy led the pack into climbing down the tree house as fast as possible and everyone followed. The girls ran inside, closed the door, and locked it. Everyone was trying to make sense of what happened but none of them could. They were all certain that it was a knock at the tree house door and it was definitely not the wind.
They decided to look out the window at the tree house. When they looked, there was shadowy figure of someone standing by the tree house door, knocking. The girls decided to stay up all night because they were just too scared to sleep.
The next morning Samantha begged and pleaded with her mom to tear down the tree house. The girls went home and from then on they were inseparable. With an experience like that, anyone would come close together.
Story Behind the Story
So if you have ever seen the movie “Now and Then” you can tell that I got some of my inspiration from it. I was also inspired by own group of friends. We met in junior year biology but I didn’t use any of our names. I used the names from the movie because I thought they were cute and fun. Also, each character in the movie reminds me a little bit of each of my friends so it just worked out perfectly.
