Alyssa in Horrorland

By Mary Jane S.

Fantasy / Horror


It was a very late night, and Alyssa knew she was doomed to not get any sleep. Thunder growled outside and lightning flashed in the distance. A storm was coming.

"Mummy... can I please sleep in your room tonight?" She would beg for the third time.

Her mother sighed, pausing in her steps at Alyssa's door. "I've already told you, dear, that you're a big girl now. You can't sleep in mommy and daddy's bed anymore."


Alyssa's mother frowned, willing to put up with her daughter's antics no more. "How about I read to you instead?"

Alyssa loved it when her mother read to her! She hopped into her bed excitedly and stared at her mother in anticipation with wide eyes. Her mother took a book from the shelf, smiling softly to herself when her fingers brushed against a certain book.

“I think you’re old enough for this one now.” Alyssa’s mother sat down and began reading.

It wasn’t long before there was a loud thud. Alyssa had long since passed out, and her mother decided it was best to go and find out what it was. She discovered someone had knocked over a bunch of cake trays, and a bottle had tipped over by thankfully not broken.

She was hardly given the chance to gasp when she saw who was responsible. Alyssa's mother was pulled out into the dark night.

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.

It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
