Harris Burdick: Under the Rug


The man, woke up frantic, he is running around trying to find something to protect himself with. Since he doesn’t know what “it” is, he thinks it’s creepy, so he latches on to the first thing he sees which is I a brown table chair. The small creature under the soft tan rug moves, which startled startles the old man because it hasn’t moved in 4 minutes and 39 seconds. The man, who has ran across across the room, murmurs quietly, hoping it was just a dream. The creature is crawled closer as the man  gets ready to strike. BANG!  The side table falls over knocking off the lamp. The creature is startled by the loud noise and jumps out from under the rug revealing it was just the man’s Tabby cat.

When the man went to put the cat back in his room he released  that wasn’t the only thing under the rug.

  1. Briana I really enjoyed reading this story, very creepy! The ending was surprising to me, it really left me hanging. What makes this story strong is that your writing is very descriptive, keep up the great work!

  2. Hey Brian!
    I remember in grade 5 I wrote a story just like this one but I was about a girl cutting into a pumpkin? Well at least that’s what the picture looked like…. Great Post!
