Fania  says:

EIIIICH!?

Alicia  

Alicia  ...

I HATE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!

*runs away*

ALICIA  says:

riight....*watching the slowly disappearing figure*

*im quite an emotionless person*

*detached,, indifferent,, and totally "i don’t care" personality*

*contemplates*

*and contemplates*

*and contemplates*

*finally raising her head and looking towards the still disappearing figure, Alicia   opens her mouth to call out*

*and then stops in mid action*

Fania  says:

Urgh…why r we getting dramatic?

(---____---)''

ALICIA  says:

*because as she turns to call out to her friend,*

*her eye catches on some graffiti written on the wall*

*tanx+cotx=cosecx.secx*

*smiling, she pulls out a paper, and saunters over to the wall, *

*and proceeds to add more graffiti onto the already bedazzled wall*

Fania  says:

is this a monologue?

(--___---)""

ALICIA  says:

well, quite

haha

unless u decide to intervene

lets continue the story ok?

add your lines in between asteriesks

Fania  says:

ok

ALICIA  says:

*half way through the sum*

*the pen nib broke*

*for the first time in two minutes, Alicia  looks up*

*and feels the need for a friend to borrow something from*

ALICIA  says:

*"hello? anybody there?" she calls*

Fania  says:

*sweat drop*

ALICIA  says:

*patter,,, patter,,, she hears a sweat drop somewhere behind her*

*it was coming from the almost empty road which her friend fania fled along*

ALICIA  says:

*she turns around... *

*slowly*

And then…u continue

Fania  says:

uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurh

*and there was nothing*

*but a cold wind that blew straight into her bones*

*everything went chilly*

*when suddenly*

Fania  says:

*when suddenly....*

uurh

*a hand went to pat on Alicia's shoulder*

*she immediately turned her head around*

*and there lies before her*

now u continue

ALICIA  says:

*a terribly sinister looking figure*

Fania  says:

then?

THEEEN?!

ALICIA  says:

*clad in a brown dirty cloak,,, and a rigid white mask, with an expression that was frozen in an endless scream*

*Alicia stopped short*

*she wanted to yell and shove away the figure, *

*but she didnt*

Fania  says:

then?!?!?!

ALICIA  says:

*she struggled with her emotions, *

*her fear battled with her pride*

Fania  says:

ooh!

ALICIA  says:

*she did not want to look like a scardy cat*

*and looked straight and fiercely back into the mask's cold dark eyes*

*but it was for a moment that the veil of indifference laid down*

*the next second, a wind lifted that thin veil, and the little timid mouse conquered the pride*

Fania  says:

Eeep!

ALICIA  says:

*with a shout and scream of terror, a yell that would rattle the windowpanes of even the most sturdy building,*

*Alicia  slapped away the hand upon her shoulder, and ran desperately away from the cloaked figure*

*she ran*

*she stumbled along the pavement*

*skipping over the litter that was strewn across the ground*

Fania  says:

ouch

that must have hurt

ALICIA  says:

*and did a long jump leap over several rubbish bags that obstructed her way*

ALICIA  says:

*and dared not turn back to look at the figure again*

*she did not stop running until she reached the next turning*

*upon which she darted into the corner*

*she stopped for breath*

*and listened hard*

*far away in the shadows of the dark street that she had left behind*

*Alicia   thought she perceived a somewhat absurd laughter*

*its sound was made more eerie and sinister with the resounding echoes off the concrete buidings*

*she shivered*

Fania  says:

eeep!

THATS SCARY!

(shiver2)

ALICIA  says:

*then a thought struck her mind "i seem to see in that figure,, some lively touches of a familiar person"*

*after several ages, the wild cackle continued*

*the source did not move closer*

*nor did it move away*

Fania  says:

oof

ALICIA  says:

*the inquisitive nature of Alicia took over her fear once again, and she decided to investigate*

*her courage restored, Alicia   inched back once again into the street that only a few minutes ago, saw her flying down from*

ALICIA  says:

*she slowly walked back*

Fania  says:

u r making me furious!

ALICIA  says:

*along the way she came*

*as she felt her way in the darkness*

*she tripped against a dustbin*

*the lid clattered onto the ground with a noisy clang*

*several bags burst open, spewing banana skins over the floor*

*a window above flew open, and a woman in a nightdress and curlers on her hair leaned out*

*she hurled a mouthful of abuse at the surprised and cowering figure below her window*

*Alicia  hurriedly kicked all the litter she let out, away into a corner*

Fania  says:

oh

who is it?

ALICIA  says:

*and the woman retreated back into her hole*

*all was quiet once again*

Fania  says:

.....

ALICIA  says:

*quiet, except for the laughter that once again penetrated the silence of the night*

*a wild cackle*

*Alicia  picked up the trashcan lid*

Fania  says:

Eeeeep!

wait

lemme guess

ALICIA  says:

*and continued her way towards the shadows*

Fania  says:

ALICIA  says:

Fania  says:

(-__-)

ALICIA  says:

Fania  says:

HWEEEEEEE

ALICIA  says:

the word weird never entereed my mind

but its ok,

*a weird cackle penetrated the silence of the night*

*Alicia  picked up the dented trashcan lid*

*and proceed her way*

*towards the shadows*

Fania  says:

eeeeep!

oh

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirozhki

ALICIA  says:

*as she neared it, she could perceive the outline of the cloaked figure once again*

*the white mask once again was highlighted among the darkness*

Eep!

Fania  says:

its food

ahahhah

wait

ALICIA  says:

ohh

anyway:

*the eyes were hollows in the face*

*but upon closer inspection, it was just an effect of light*

*the msk did not change its expression*

*Alicia  lifted the trashcan lid*

Fania  says:

oofh!

ALICIA  says:

*and hurled it, frisbee style towards the figure*

*as expected, her aim was imperfect*

*and the shot went wide*

*it landed on the road with another resounding and annoying clang*

Fania  says:

hahahahah

Alicia

*brb

ALICIA  says:

Fania  says:

OK!

AND BACK

Fania  says:

ALICIA  says:

so lets continue

*now deprived of her only weapon*

*Alicia   stands helplessly and unarmedly before the ...thing*

*she stands rigid*

Fania  says:

ooh!

ALICIA  says:

*the thing did not move*

*she thought she saw a movemtn behind the dark hollows of the eyes of the mask*

Fania  says:

"THING"?!

(-_-)

ALICIA  says:

*but it may be an effect of light*

*her BBM beeped*

Fania  says:

............funny

ALICIA  says:

*without lifting her eyes from the mask's face, Alicia   reached into her pocket*

*it was a message from her mom "Where are you now? Come home"*

*Alicia   replied "coming"*

*the figure still did not move*

*and Alicia   decided to take the chance of getting some rescue*

Fania  says:

then?

ALICIA  says:

*"Fania, i'm sorry, i need you. could you come back? there is this weird thing in front of me"*

*she clicked send*

*then stood defensively facing the figure*

Fania  says:

then?

ALICIA  says:

*another BBM beep resounded in the street*

Fania  says:

Alicia  , u might be interested in being at a service of national coast guard

hahaha

ALICIA  says:

*this time coming from barely a few metres in front of her*

*the mask shifted*

*then sudenly, it fell off the hood *

Fania  says:

then?

ALICIA  says:

*the figure pulled out a BB from the recesses of its pocket*

 and suddenly, laughter erupted across the street*

*puzzled, Alicia  moved closer*

*now that the mask was off*

*a dark hole gaped from the hood*

Fania  says:

................

ALICIA  says:

*"ALICIA ! YOU BBM ME??"*

Fania  says:

so dramatic

ALICIA  says:

*a familiar voice called out*

Fania  says:

(--________--)""

ALICIA  says:

*the figure stepped out from the shadows*

*and the familiar face of Fania gleamed as she pulled away the oversized hood from her face*

*Alicia   was dumbstruck*

*embarrassed*

Fania  says:

ahahaah

 

ALICIA  says:

*and totally shocked*

*"IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG!!"*

*fania emerged from the shadows, doubled up in silent laughter at her friend who got so scared over a little trick played by her*

*THE END*

Well, that was... different, ha ha. Definitely not something you read on here everyday, and I admire your creativity. I can tell you really had fun with it, and what's the point of writing if you don't enjoy yourself? It wasn't taken too seriously and I like how playful and lighthearted it was.

Nice work! :)

A very fun piece.
