Cornelius the Creepy Scarecrow on eBay!



It's a cool, crisp Fall night and it's late. You and one of your girlfriend have been to the theater to see the latest horror movie. It was a real thriller too.....with lots of blood and gore and your mind is filled with creepy images that won't soon leave you. You quietly wonder to yourself if you'll ever fall asleep tonight. That might be a good thing though......since you'll probably have nightmares anyway.

It's a cool, crisp Fall night and it's late. You and one of your girlfriend have been to the theater to see the latest horror movie. It was a real thriller too.....with lots of blood and gore and your mind is filled with creepy images that won't soon leave you. You quietly wonder to yourself if you'll ever fall asleep tonight. That might be a good thing though......since you'll probably have nightmares anyway.

Ten minutes ago, you dropped your girlfriend off at her house. Since she lives so far out in the countryside, she had invited you to spend night at her place.....but you declined. You have to be at work early the next morning, so you decided to head home. As your car crests a small hill, your heart sinks as you hear the engine begin to sputter. To your horror, you realize that your car has run out of gas along this long, dark, lonely stretch of country road. The gravel crunches under your tires as you slowly coast to the side of the road and come to a stop. As you sit there for a moment, you notice that the silence is deafening and the darkness that surrounds you is inky black. Off in the far distance, you can see a light lit in a solitary farmhouse. Since you haven't seen another car pass by, you realize that your only hope for assistance is to walk the lonely stretch of road between you and the farmhouse. Gathering up all of your courage, you leave the safety of your car.

The air has become colder as the night wears on and the wind, once a soft breeze, is beginning to blow harder as a storm approaches. Occasionally, flashes of distant lightning illuminate the huge corn fields on either side of the road. Out of the corner of your eye, you see something in the corn field off to your right. What could it be? Your heart begins to pound. You can see your breath in the cold air as you quicken your pace.

How you wish that you could cover your eyes and hide! An eerie feeling of being watched comes over you. With the next flash of lightning, you realize that it's only a scarecrow, stuck on a stake in the field to keep the crows away. You breath a little easier now and have to laugh at yourself for allowing your imagination run wild. You know how scared you can get after watching horror movies.

Then suddenly, in the silence, you hear it! The rustling sound of corn stalks. You tell yourself that it's only the wind and try to remain calm. Your eyes search the field for a glimpse of the scarecrow high above the corn, but you're unable to see anything in the darkness. With the next lightning flash you see it though! The bare, solitary stake.....silhouetted against the night sky. The same stake where the scarecrow had been hanging just minutes ago. The rustling sound seems to be coming closer to the edge of the field now, as though someone or something is walking towards you.

With your heart now pounding in your ears, you begin to run. The rustling sound continues to grow louder. It seems as though the sound is beside you now. Whatever it is......it's keeping pace with you just on the other side of the corn, ready to jump out and grab you at any minute! Your lungs burn with every breath and your side aches as you run as fast as you can. You feel the fear beginning to engulf your every fiber of being and it's all you can do to hold back your screams.



"Wake up Joycee......Time to get up!" says a familiar voice from down the hall. It's my husband's voice. After a foggy moment or two, I realize that it was only bad dream. See......that's why I don't watch scary movies anymore. LOL!
