Chain Email

 

 

To: missy.garber@gmail.com

From: lucy_marshall@gmail.com

Subject; FWD>>DO NOT DELETE. Abigail Anne

8:10 pm

 

 

DO NOT DELETE THIS EMAIL. If you do not forward this email to twelve people in the next 24 hours you will surely die.

 

         My name is Abigail Anne. When I turned twenty years old, I had a party. It was a great party. All of my best friends were there. But then, after everyone left and I was cleaning up, I realized I forgot to lock the door when there was a sudden knock on the door. Three sharp knocks. Who’s there? I called. There was no answer. Who is it? I asked again. I walked to the door and peeked into the peephole. No one was there. I shrugged it off and went back to cleaning. How stupid I was to do that. Soon after, three sharp knocks came again, followed by a long creak as the door opened. I froze. Grabbed a knife from it’s holder, but it was too late. A heartless killer murdered me on my twentieth birthday. Now, I will get my revenge. Forward this to twelve people or I will come and kill you. How, you may ask? First you will hear three sharp knocks on your door, then I will come into wherever you are, locked or not, and kill you like I was killed. For your sake, I would pass on this email. You never know when I will come knocking!

Laugh all you want, but this actually gave me a chill. I know it’s supposed to be all fake, but this one creeped me out. Lock your doors, would you? My takeout is here, hold on.

         2 TEENS FOUND DEAD IN THEIR HOUSES AFTER OPENING ‘ABIGAIL’ CHAIN EMAIL.

        

         By Alexa Marks

 

        

         Two teens were allegedly found murdered in their houses yesterday. Lucy Marshall, 18 and Missy Garber, 18, were found in their respective houses. Both had computers open showing the attached email conversation, regarding a chain email entitled ‘DO NOT DELETE. Abigail Anne. The email, a chain letter, tells the story of a girl named Abigail Anne who was murdered in her house after hearing three knocks on her door and warns readers to pass on the message or they will be murdered by the girl the way she was.

         Both Marshall and Garber’s doors hung open, and both sets of parents were not home at the time of the murders. The attached conversation was also found on their phones. Was this simply a coincidence? Or was the chain letter not really a hoax, but a killer stalking young girls via the internet? More information will be released later today.

 

Missy G: My name is Abigail Anne. When I turned twenty years old, I had a party. It was a great party.

 

Emily F: Missy?

 

Missy G: Did you get my email? Do you hear me knocking? Open the door.

The flow of the story of the story was good and it was nostalgic to remember how this type of mail used to circulate in our phones and computers. Great work but I think the spaces used to show the different emails should be wider? It would make for a greater visual appeal.

The infamous chain-letter, I remember these from when I was a kid, snail-mail then, but same concept. The story’s interesting as a modern version. I would recommend trying to do if from a single perspective to make it a little more original, e.g. write it from one of the girl’s POV, show her laughing it off, then becoming scared, her fear growing when she hears the knock, maybe even hint at the killer’s appearance.

The ending tied this together, but there were a few minor problems.

Two teens were allegedly found murdered in their houses (today). Use yesterday, as if this is an article the news wouldn’t hit circulation the same day, unless it’s an internet news; also change Missy’s age to 18, as authorities rarely release the names of minors.

Overall: an entertaining read. Good luck in your future writing endeavors.
