The Clown Statue

There was a babysitter, babysitting 3 kids down her street. She was around 14 to 16 years old. The parents told her after she put the kids to bed she could go to the den and watch TV until they got home. It was around an hour after they put the kids to sleep and she started to watch TV. She noticed a creepy looking clown statue in the corner of the den. She called the parents to ask them a quick question... Here is the conversation: Parents: Hello? Babysitter: Hello... Um... There's a really creepy clown statue in the corner of the den. Could I--" Parents: Clown statue? We don't have a clown statue. Go get the kids. Go next door and call the police. The babysitter hung-up the phone, but as soon as she did that the clown statue jumped and stabbed her back with a knife, and did the same with the children upstairs. The "statue" was actually a murderer who was a midget living off their food and sleeping in their attic for over 2 months. He wore a clown suit and froze whenever he saw someone walk in the same room.

As they developed the pictures to look for more evidence they found that the very last picture before he went missing had a faint figure in the background: a man in a ski mask holding a knife.

Before I start, I want to say this is all true. I swear on the Bible itself. Oh, and guys, if you read this and don't forward it to at least 5 people, Anne will get you. Let's begin. Once there was a girl named Anne Marie. She loved her boyfriend a lot, so much that she visited him every day. But one day when she came to visit he was kissing another girl -- Anne's sis, to be exact. Anne was so mad she killed her sister, then slashed her boyfriend's arm, saying, "Love anyone else ever again, or try to hide this cut, I'll get you." She quietly left. So every time the boyfriend's cut healed, she came back to cut it again, saying, "Remember me? IT'S ME, ANNE MARIE." One day his cut had healed and he huddled in the corner waiting for her, but when she didn't come he decided she was gone, finally dead. So a few years later he had a wife, kids, and house. But one night as he and his wife were going to bed, he dropped his glass of water and one shard cut him on the arm. Then Anne's ghost said, "IT'S ME, ANNE MARIE."

In a very dense forest, there was a small town called Nice Town. This, however, was a cover-up for what really happened there. The villagers tortured and killed any people unfortunate enough to come to the village, but there was one little girl called Blossom. She disapproved of the villagers' actions, so she killed them all by biting their throats out. If you walk to the remains of the village you will hear Blossom singing a song. It goes: "I'm the, nicest little girl, oh yes I am, and if you try to torture or kill me you really really can't." And if you answer, "I can," she will eat your throat. But if you answer, "Sorry, I'm lost," she will appear in front of you and guide you out of the forest. And if you answer, "Blossom, you did the right thing," she will appear in front of you and beg you to take her away from the village, but she will turn to ashes when she exits the forest...

The Staring Girl

A girl was traveling home one night on the underground train. She got on the next train and saw that there were 2 men, a young girl and a businessman on the train. She glanced over at the young girl with two guys sitting either side of her. The girl was staring blankly at her, her eyes wide open. She started to feel uncomfortable. The train halted as it approached the next stop, and as it did, the staring girl suddenly lurched forward and then was pulled back by the two guys. She knew something wasn't right now. The businessman whispered to the girl, "Get off the train." The girl replied, "What? Why?" "Just trust me," he said, looking nervous. The girl didn't know what to do; stay on the train with the odd girl and two guys, or leave the train with the man. When the train stopped, she got off. The man followed her. She looked at the man, not knowing what he was going to do. But then he said, "That girl on the train was murdered by the two guys. She's not alive at all. She's dead."

The Clown Doll

A little girl named Judi was having her 7th Birthday, so her dad took her out shopping to buy a gift. She walked past a doll section and chose a little clown with a red nose and fuzzy green hair that was holding up 5 fingers with one hand and the other hand behind its back. "I want this little clown, Daddy," she said with a smile. Her dad said, "Sure." Little Judi went home and put her clown on her shelf and went to sleep... The next morning, Judi's dad called to Judi, "Wake up, honey, time for breakfast!" ...There was no answer. The dad walked up to Judi's room and knocked on the door. There was still no answer.

This Is Scarrryyyyy

There once was a girl and her friend at the pool. When they got there the pool was closing in one hour, so they decided they would hide in the girls' locker room and go back swimming after everyone left. When it was closing time and the manager locked the door, they went swimming in the pool. They were having sooo much fun, until one of the girls remembered a story about a boy who drowned in water, and that when you're all alone he will pull you down and you will drown. The other girl thought that was a stupid story. Then when the girl who was scared got out of the pool, the other girl stayed in longer. Right when she decided to get out, someone pulled her down. While under the water the only thing she remembered was a little boy with a messed up face. When the other girl got out of the bathroom she couldn't find her friend. Then she looked down at the pool, and her friend was lying there, DEAD.
