A Scary Night with a Snow Beast Fright
Updated: Aug 19, 2021
It was a chilly afternoon in the middle of December. Mary and her friend, Selena, were playing on an isolated, snow-covered ground. Suddenly Mary heard a strange thudding. By the look on Selena’s face, Mary could tell she wasn’t imagining things.
“Let’s hide behind a tree,” Mary whispered.
“Can’t we just run home?” asked Selena.
“I want to see what it is.”
“Okay, but let’s climb a tree. We’ll be safer that way.”
Mary agreed, and they found a tree suitable to climb. Once they were on the top, Mary began to keep a close watch out for anything suspicious. After about five minutes, Selena saw a gigantic white monster about the size of a T-rex approaching them. It was knee-deep in the snow. Its feet were probably making thudding noises. She pointed this out to Mary.
“Do you see what I see?” asked Mary.
“Yes. What do you think it is?” asked Selena.
“Well, it looks like the legendary Snow Beast.”
“Do you think it’s real?”
“No, I think it’s someone trying to scare us. Probably my brother Travis playing a joke.”
“Well, what do we do?”
“We’ll watch this thing for two days or so. Then we can catch it by predicting its moves.”
For the next two days, the Snow Beast came and rampaged around the ground. Strangely it didn’t do then any harm. On the third day, the friends made a plan.
“We can stay on a tree and, as it goes past, we can swipe off its mask using a branch,” said Mary.
“Good idea. Come on, let’s get ready,” said Selena.
“Travis is in for a fright!” giggled Mary.
That afternoon, Mary and Selena put their plan into action. They predicted the Snow Beast’s path and climbed onto a tree that was in its way. As usual, the Snow Beast passed under the tree. But this time, Selena and Mary swept off the fake costume’s helmet. The inside was hollow. After a few moments, Travis climbed out, laughing.
“Too bad you two weren’t scared,” he said.
“It takes a lot to scare us, Travis,” said Mary.
And the three friends went home, laughing at each other as they went.
