I'm participating in Parajunkee's Spooky September Challenge! Today's writing prompt is the Spookiest Campfire Story I've Ever Heard.
I used to go camping a lot when I was younger with my family. I remember one time pleading with my dad to tell me a scary story. He obliged in his corny, dad way...it was a scary story with a joke ending, about a Wrap, Wrap, Wrap on the door...and at the end...it was...WRAPPING PAPER. *Insert eye roll*
However, one time at Girl Scout Camp, I remember a counselor talking about the "Fifth Dimension" (not the music group), and how it was said to be "out there somewhere" and that anyone could "just fall into it." A young scout with a vivid imagination pictured this black hole in the woods moving around like a spotlight waiting for unsuspecting victims. I'm sure I was afraid to get out of bed to even go to the bathroom that night!
How 'bout you? Do you have any good campfire stories?
