A) The visitor 

It was a cold,melancholic february night,and a strong wind was blowing.The stars were shining with an unusual way ,like never before.They had predicted what would happen and they were trying to warn us . But the question is : What could happen to an average teen company like us ? Alice,Peter,Jane and me ,were at Alice’s house. We were lying on the couch,watching a scary movie and eating pop corn. Suddenly the lights went off,and we heard the noise of an open window.We got panicked! Then we tried to turn on the lights or calling our parents but we couldn’t.After that,we heard a scary voice talking to us ! It said:»You can’t leave this house. You “re dead!!». We started screaming in the room and running but we couldn’t go anywhere because of the darkness.»That’s all guys» Peter said.A tall white figure came out ,holding a big knife with blood.The ghost was coming towards us but it fell on the floor with a big thump.Jane and I went around it and we discovered that the »ghost» was………. Dan ,Alice’s brother !We were so angry with him ! Afterwards,he explained us that it was just a joke ….. I will never forget that day !

B)  A few months ago, I had a very mysterious experience. It happend at the 9/11 Memorial, the monument that was built to remember the victims of the September 11th attacks. It was a sunny spring day but I was a bit depressed. I was thinking about the terrible destuction of that tragic day while I was sitting alone under a tree. There was no one around and everything was calm and peaceful. Suddently, a beautiful young woman appeared and sat down next to me. She told me that her name was Melissa Fegan and asked me several questions about my life. Before she left, she gave me a piece of advice: » Live each day as if it were your last.» A week later, I went back to the Memorial. As I was standing by one of the pools, I noticed a name that was inscribed on the panel. Melissa Fegan! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Without question, the young woman I had met a few days before had been a victim of 9/11. My life changed by this experience. I realised how fortunate I was to be alive and have a family and friends. At that moment, I made up my mind to fulfill my hopes and dreams and to do all I could to make the world a better place.

C)  Unfortunately, Christmas wasn’t exactly as I expected. We were at home I, my mom and my brother. We were arranging the place we  would go for  Christmas. At that moment, my dad came with a broken leg. It was a big problem. I felt sad and a little frightened. Everyone felt frightened, sad and  suprised. My mom, my brother and I began to ask questions about the accident. After many days, my dad was well again but we couldn’t go on holidays. I will never forget that day.
