The Promise Rings is a scary and sad love story about a boy and a girl who were deeply in love. The boy buys his girlfriend a ring and promises that they will be together forever.
There was a boy and a girl who were truly, madly, deeply in love. The boy was 15 and the girl was 14. Their parents told them they were too young to have such an in intense relationship, but the teenage couple wouldn’t listen. They wanted to be together forever.
One day, the girl received a text message from her boyfriend. It read: “Hey babe. Come over to my house after school. I’ve got a surprise for you.”
That evening, the girl ran to her boyfriend’s house with a beaming smile on her face. When she arrived at his door, he was waiting for her. He took her in his arms and kissed her tenderly on the lips. Then, he took something out of his pocket and handed it to her. It was a small box.
The girl opened the box and when she saw what was inside, her eyes grew wide with surprise and her heart started racing. It was a promise ring. The ring was made of gold and was set with a gleaming gem.
“It’s a symbol of my love for you,” said the boy. “I bought one for myself too. It means that we will always be together. Nothing can separate us. No matter what happens, I will always be right there by your side.”
The girl didn’t know what to say. She was so overcome with emotion that she couldn’t speak. She put the ring on her finger and hugged her boyfriend tightly, never wanting to let him go. That day would be etched in their memories forever and wherever they went, the boy and the girl would always be wearing their rings.
A few weeks later, during the summer holidays, the young couple decided to go on a camping trip together. When they arrived at the camp site, they parked their car and found a nice spot near the lake. They pitched their tent and unpacked their things. Then, they built a fire.
When everything was ready, they sat down together by the lake and held hands, kissing and hugging occasionally and whispering tender words of love in each other’s ears. They were happy just to be able to spend time together.
Gradually, it grew darker and, as night fell, they lay in the grass, gazing up at the stars. Eventually, it was time to go to sleep. The young couple went back to their tent and unrolled their sleeping bags.
Just as they were about to turn in for the night, the girl remembered that she had forgotten her cell phone. She told her boyfriend she was going back to the car to fetch it. The boy nodded and the girl walked off in the direction of the parking lot and disappeared into the night.
10 minutes passed and she still had not returned. The boy began to get concerned. When 20 minutes passed without any sign of her, he became really worried. After 30 minutes, he decided to go and see what was going on.
As he walked towards the car, something caught his attention. In the distance, he saw something glittering in the trees. When he reached the car, his girlfriend was nowhere to be seen.
He decided to call her phone. It rang and rang, but she didn’t answer. Somewhere in the distance, he could hear the faint sound of her phone ringing. At this point, he was frantic with worry.
He saw something glittering in the trees again, so he started walking in that direction. He made his way through the darkness, calling his girlfriend’s name, but there was no response. It was pitch black and he couldn’t see.
He kept walking through the forest until he heard something close by. It sounded like the snap of twigs being crushed underfoot. Then he heard another noise. A low, creaking sound. He felt a drop fall on his face. Thinking it was starting to rain, he looked up.
Just then, the moon came out from behind the clouds and in the dim moonlight, he saw something dangling right in front of his face. It was a hand… A hand with a promise ring on the finger.
He looked up and gasped in horror.
The decapitated body of his girlfriend was hanging from the tree above him, swaying softly back and forth and dripping blood on the ground.
The boy let out an anguished scream.
He heard the sound of twigs snapping behind him. Quickly turning around, he saw a strange man standing there in the moonlight. The boy was so terrified, he didn’t know what to do.
The man grinned and held something up. It was the girl’s severed head. Her eyes and lips had been sewn shut.
“No!” the boy cried. “No! No! No!”
The man tossed the severed head away and took out a machete. The blade was long and sharp and it glinted in the moonlight. He approached the boy, raised the machete above his head.
With one swipe, the blade cut through the boy’s neck and before he could utter another word, his head was rolling across the forest floor.
The next morning, there were two headless bodies in the forest, hanging side by side, both wearing promise rings… But their severed heads were nowhere to be found…
