Vines scrambled out of the book. Mary woke up and the vines started to choke her. Mr. Linden had warned her but she didn't listen.Now, this might be the last she'd see in her life.
The day before...
"I'm warning you," croaked Mr. Linden. "The book has been acting very strange. The last 3 owners died while they had it." Mary thought that Mr. Linden was trying to creep her out. She snatched the book out of his hands, checked it out, and skipped out of Jocksenville's public library, Mr. Linden's Library. All the books in his library were magical. They were ordinary books you could find at ordinary libraries except what happened in the book would really happen. Mary had chosen the newest book, 'Jumanji,' by Chris Van Alsburg. She loved to read, especially books she hadn't read.
"But mom!"stammered Mary. "I wanna read it!" "Not until you finish your chores, young lady!" replied her mom. "Hmmphh!"complained Mary. She cleaned the toilet. scrubbed the sink, and washed the bathtub. By dinnertime, she was finished. "I've finished my chores", said Mary. She picked at her dinner, devoured her dessert, got ready for bed, and finally started to read. She fell asleep and the book lay open.
Vines scrambled out of the book. Mary woke up and the vines started to choke her. Mr. Linden had warned her but she didn't listen.Now, this might be the last she'd see in her life.By morning, she was dead. The book had killed it's next victim. Her parents came in and saw the vines and their dead daughter. They cried and cried and cried for the most of rest of their life.
