The Hiding Place is a scary story written by a member on this website named XxDarkDemonxX. It’s about three young girls who are bored and decide to play a game of hide and seek one dark night.
When her mother went out for the night, a 16-year old girl named Alice invited her two best friends, Zendhya and Zaira, over to her house to keep her company. They were sitting on the couch, bored out of their minds and looking for something to do. Suddenly, there was a knock at the door.
â€œIâ€™ll get itâ€ said Zaira.
When she answered the door, there was a tall guy wearing a navy blue hoodie standing there. It was Keith, Zairaâ€™s new boyfriend.
â€œHey Babe!â€ shouted Zaira. “Come on in and make yourself comfortable.”
Keith came into the living room and sat down on the couch. Alice was trying to think of a game they could play to pass the time.
â€œOh, I know!” shouted Zendhya. “Letâ€™s play hide and go seek!â€
Everybody nodded in agreement. They went outside. It was cold and damp, but they didnâ€™t care.
â€œOk, here are the rulesâ€ explained Alice. â€œThe seeker has to count to 100 while the hiders have tofind a hiding place and hide.â€
â€œReally?â€ said Zaira sarcastically. “I don’t think any of us knew that already.”
â€œLet me finish,â€ said Alice. “When the hider is found she… or he… has to scream to let the others know.â€
â€œKeith will be it,â€ said Zaira, volunteering her boyfriend.
â€œAw, of course,â€ Keith grinned. She always made him volunteer for everything.
Keith covered his eyes and began counting while the three girls split up and ran off in different directions to find a hiding place. Zendhya hid behind a shrub while Alice ducked down behind a parked car. Zaira didnâ€™t know where to hide, so she just stood behind a tree.
â€œReady or not, here I come!â€ shouted Keith.
For a long time, there was nothing but silence. Alice grew bored of her hiding spot, so she went to find Zaira. The two girls crouched behind the tree together. Then, they heard a loud cry in the distance.
â€œMaybe he caught Zendhya,â€ whispered Zaira.
Just then, they heard a strange voice behind them whisper, “PSSSST!”
Alice and Zaira turned around and screamed.
“I’ve found you!â€ shouted Keith.
“OMG Keith! You almost gave me a heart attack!â€ Alice cried angrily.
â€œWhereâ€™s Zendhya?â€ asked Zaira.
“I didnâ€™t find her yet,â€ Keith replied.
They all decided to go look for her and walked around the housing estate in the darkness. After searching for 30 minutes, there was still no sign of her and the other girls were getting worried. Just then, they happened to look behind a large bush and all of them screamed in horror.
Zendhya was lying on the ground in a pool of blood. She had been stabbed in the chest. On her corpse, there was a scribbled note.
It simply read: “I’ve found you.”
