The Devil's Favourite Game

Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire, England Dated: 1600 - 1700
The Devil's Favourite Game

Three people were camping in the woods. They loved camping. Jhosh said: “Let's go down the river and get some wood”. Annie, the second camper, said “wait for me I’ll come”, as she put her boots on. The third camper Charley said “I’ll come, that gives us something to do”.

An hour passed, they decided to go back to the den that they had made. In shock the three campers stood still. The tents had been blown up and set on fire and the fire that they set up for the food to go in had been snapped in half. As they came back to their senses they put the fire out with their water bottles and then set the tents up again.

Another hour passed, now it was 7 o clock. They finally finished and then they ate they went in their own tents to sleep. But Jhosh didn’t want to go to sleep, he stayed awake. He left his book outside so he wanted to get it to pass the time. As he went out to grab his book he saw something in the woods, it was bloody red and it was dripping. He said “hello are you ok”, but no answer back. Jhosh wanted to get a better view. He said again “hello are you ok”, still no answer, just someone standing there.

As he reach in the woods he saw nothing, he thought to himself that’s so weird I swear I saw something. Then, when he turned around a dripping bloody man come right near him. He had just white eyes and really sharp teeth and nails. Jhosh screamed out loud. It worked, the other campers woke up but as they rushed down to where Jhosh was, it was too late. His head was on the floor they didn’t know who it was or nothing, but as they turned around they saw the devil. They ran to the car and they got in it. They escaped but poor Jhosh didn’t.

Weeks passed and then Annie went in her bed to go to sleep. Suddenly the Devil said let’s play my favourite game and killed poor Annie.
