UNDERWATER CREATURES

Narwhales or unicorns of the sea are midle sised tooth whales.This marine mammals are known for their characteristic unicorn horn that only the 15% of the males have!

 In the past this tusk was so valuable that only kings had the wright to own one. In the 16th century a task worth 10.000 pounds was given to Queen Elizabeth as  a gift. The narval's tusk can reach up to 3 meters and grows throughout its life. Although it is a tooth it is different from the teeths we know; It is relativily flexible from the outside and more compact to the inside. Males use this tooth or as a weapon or as a way to atract the females or it helps them understand the differencies of the temperature, but non of thiese theories have been proved.

For both sexes, inclouding the horn, narwhale's total body size can range from 4 to 5,5 meters long. The average weight of an adult narwhale is 800 – 1.600 kg and they live up to 50 years.Their pigmentation is a pattern; They are white, with blackish – brown spots. They are darker when they get born and become whiter with age. 

Adult sea unicorns mate between April and May. Females give birth between June and August the following wear, as their pregnancy lasts 14 months.

 

 

Unfortunatly narwhales are in danger. There aren't many laws of narhwales protection and the climate change destroys their natural habitats.

Two sentence horror stories, Peter, CPE, NEON Aegina

As I was falling asleep, I heard faint footsteps from downstairs. That's when I realized I hadn't locked the door.

 

We burried her in the old cemetery, next to her sister's grave. That way no one can hear her scream.

Only in Stories, Peter, CPE, NEON Aegina

I am starting to regret coming on this camping trip. A few people from school organized it and I decided to join in. Although I did have a reason for coming, I haven't had the opportunity to do what I'd planned yet. Right now it's dark out, and everyone is sitting around the fire roasting marshmallows

I'm bored…” a kid sitting next to me says, perfectly expressing my mood. “Does anyone know a good story?”

Martin, you should tell the one about the couple who got lost in the woods! Werewolves always scare me,” someone else suggests, nudging Martin on the shoulder.

I perk up at that.Werewolves? This is gonna be interesting. Martin jumps at the opportunity and immediately starts telling us the story.

Only a few years ago, a young couple, while on holiday, stopped in these very woods. They sat in a clearing, enjoying each other's company. The sun was almost gone and they were having a picnic, watching it set. After a while, they got in their car to leave, but before they could even turn the engine on, they heard a howl from the trees. By now, the moon was clearly visible overhead, and it was full, as it is today.

The girl was scared. She talked about werewolves and other creatures, but the boy comforted her. Such things only exist in stories, you see. They can't really harm us. However, as they backed out of the woods and onto the road, he saw a dark humanoid figure standing on the edge of the forest. It ran towards their car, almost blindingly fast. The girl started screaming and the boy slammed the accelerator.

The car was no match for the werewolf's speed, for now they could clearly see what it was. A hulking mass of bone, muscle and fur, it attacked them fiercely, trying to pierce the metal of the vehicle with its claws. By now, the boy was screaming too, hoping that the beast couldn't tear open their car. Of course, he hoped in vain, since, as we all know, a werewolf's claws are sharp as a razor.

When the monster got in the car, it made quick work of the passengers. It killed and ate them, then left their bones in the car, as a reminder of its danger. It will do the same to anyone who enters the forest, if given the chance. And that's why you should never come to these woods on the night of a full moon…”

As the gasps uttered at the climax of the story die down, everyone looks up at the moon. Of course, it's full, like in the story. I grin, exposing a set of too-sharp teeth. Aside from the fact he called me 'it', I couldn't have come up with a better introduction myself.

Prohibition, Adamantia, CPE, Neon Aegina

Wednesday 25 October, 1990.

 

                                           Cinco Saltos, Argentina. 08:00 am.

 

Cinco Saltos has been reported to have a number of evil spirits, most of them reportedly as a result of witchcraft.

 

 

 

The School Principal announced, ‘’From now on, the entrance to the school’s basement is prohibited and whoever attempts going down there gets suspended. Do I make myself clear?’’

   Everybody was aware of this place’s history and they did nothing but agree to what the principal said. But there was this one girl, who never listened to anybody but her instinct, who always got what she wanted. Everybody was scared of her and nobody could ever say no to her. To be honest, her instinct had got her in trouble multiple times, but as long as I can remember, there were few times whenit proved her wrong.  

 

History class, 08:30-09:15am.

 

I could see her writing non-stop on this paper. It seemed as if she was making a plan. I intentionally threw my pencil to the ground to see what she had been planning. In fact, I already knew, but what I saw on that paper was beyond my imagination.  Not only was she planning on breaking into school at midnight and going to the prohibited basement, but she wanted my company as well. As I saw my name on that list, I started shaking and sweating. I went back to my seat, tried to calm myself down, and then I tried to figure out what I would do. I knew well that she wouldn’t take no as an answer. 

 

End of school day, 15:30pm.

 

There I was, walking out of class, all sweating and wondering why she hadn’t approached me yet. As I was walking down the aisle, a raspy voice coming from my back, whispered my name and said: ‘’Bus stop. Midnight. I’ll see you there’’.

My voice cracked, ‘’O-kay’’

 

Home 16:00pm

 

was trying to eat lunch but my hands were shaking. I saw my mum from across the table looking at me.

 

‘’Is everything alright love?’’ She seemed to worry a lot,

 

‘’Y-yes mum, just had a rough day at school, that’s all’’

 

It was the first time I’d ever lied to my mum. I felt terrible and I knew it would not end well.

 

‘’Okay love, you should get some rest then’’.

 

As I got up from the table and headed upstairs, I realised that I had to come up with an excuse about the night. I decided to say that I would sleep over at Betty’s, who was my best friend back then.

 

11:50pm.

 

The bus stop was five minutes from my house, and as I was walking, I could feel my heart beating faster and faster. I got there and waited for that girl. Random thoughts like, ‘’what if that girl is actually evil’’ or ‘’what if she tries to kill me’’ would haunt my mind. I started shaking again. 

 

 

12:00am.

 

No sign of the girl. I started to get worried until she showed up few minutes later. We started walking to school and as we were getting closer, I realised something strange. I could hear her heart beating way faster than mine, her breathing was getting heavier and heavier, as though as she knew what awaited us. I didn't bother checking up on her at all, I knew she was strong herself.

 

12:10pm.

 

We had just climbed the front gate of school and were walking down tothe basement door. We soon realised that we didn't have any keys so we tried to break the locker. After a couple of minutes, we did, as the door was really old. Everything was dark and scary. She lit a candle, I held her hand and we were slowly going in. As we were walking, we heard a scream. We both freaked out and screamed back. She tried to calm me down but it was impossible. It was getting colder and colder and that basement felt like a maze. My breath was really loud,so was my heartbeat. 

   ''SHHHH'' she aggressively said and shut my mouth with her hand. ''Did you hear that?''

I nodded, still shaking.  She seemed like she knew where she was going and that creeped me out even more. I couldn't understand if she was actually scared or she was trying to mess with me. We kept on walking for some time until we heard a loud bang on a door. We didn't know which door so she insisted on finding it. I wanted to leave but she wouldn't let me. For a moment, I thought that she wanted to sacrifice me. All these nonsensical thoughts were running inside my head while I was in that basement. 

 

We started going deeper, the darkness was filling up the small holes that light could pass through and something smelled really bad as we were heading to that door. Constant screams and bangs could be heard, but to me, they sounded very numb. It almost felt like a dream, I didn't know where I was. Had I gone mad?Then something dragged the girl, covered her mouth and disappeared. I couldn't do anything but search for her. I was walking slowly to where the knockings and the footsteps could be heardI was covering my mouth and trying to get myself together.

 

I finally reached that door. I could hear her screaming and asking for help. I pushed the door. I couldn't believe what I was seeing……… I thought I was dreaming. I blinked a few times and it was real. I saw the Principal with my mum, my classmates and her. What were they doing? They had just pulled a Halloween prank on me. At first, I was mad, but that's something I'll never forget.

“Mystery house” Stelios c1 NEON Aegina

It was night on the 31st of October. Four friends Mike, Stelios, Dimitris and Spyros. 

Were going for a walk and then they saw a big house, there were no people living here.

The boys want to go there to see the house and see if the house was scary. But in this house some people were making a scary movie about  Halloween, but the boys didn't know that.

First they went to see the house around and then, went in It. They started to see if the windows were open or the door was open. They found one window open and went in. They started about the first floor but they didn't see any thing, then they went to the second floor but didn't see any thing or any people. But the film was being made on the third floor.

Then the boys got to the last floor. They listened to spooky music and voices.

Two of the kids did want to go up but then they all went and saw spooky costumes, masks, cameras, and lamps.

They went in and saw the people making the film, then the boys calmed down.
