Once upon a time Amy was home alone. It was a cold and windy Friday night. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. Amy went to answer the door. She was terrified, it was...... her pet poodle. Amy was so delighted that it wasn't what she thought it was. But then the door was knocked again. Amy was thinking the person at the door was someone delivering a collar for her gorgeous poodle, but it was actually an eight-eyed monster!
The house was bare, so there was nothing for Amy to hide behind. Amy was left to deal with the monster herself, and as for her poodle, well it just vanished into thin air. Amy didn't know what to do, because the monster was getting so close, so close now that Amy could smell the monster's stinky breath.
But then Amy heard a voice she recognised. It was her older brother Bob's voice saying 'I tricked you, didn't you know that it was April fools day? Amy's brother took off his monster costume. Amy was very, very, very mad. She had, had such a bad day at school, because she accidentally broke the teacher's glasses (and got a big detention for that), she also got blamed for a bad accident and finally, as Amy walked down the school corridor someone turned on the alarm, and you wouldn't want to think about the trouble she was in. Now Amy's brother Bob was teasing her about the big fright, when suddenly the doorbell rang.
This time everything was serious. This time it was not Bob. The door opened and Amy's mum appeared. Amy woke up. It was all a nightmare. Amy had just been part of the scariest nightmare ever! "You have been asleep for ten years!" Amy's mum told Amy. Amy was so shocked.
