Injun Joe's Death: A Narrative Fiction
“ Scat! You devil! ” said Huck who was waiting for me on the roof. Then came a crash I immediately woke up and got dressed. I tip-toed out the window and met Huck at the roof.
“Say, Tom what took you so long, I’ve been waiting for a while. Come on let us get going!”
“Ain’t you mighty lucky that you didn’t wake up my Aunt Polly or Sid, or we would have gotten a licking.” After half an hour, we arrived at the graveyard. The graveyard was deserted and had hundreds of graves spaced out all over the field. The faint wind moaned through the trees and the grass danced. There was a high-pitched howl every so often. I feared that it might have been the dead spirits that came to complain about being disturbed. But I knew that ghosts weren’t real until

Robinson. Within a while, they got in a fight but Muff held up his knife and asked Injun Joe to stop instantly. Injun Joe didn’t listen but Muff was to drunk to stop him. Injun Joe snached the knife and drove the knife into the doctor’s chest. The doctor fell down onto Muff Potter’s shoulder and looked dead.
Huck and I fell back down on their bottoms and anxiously crawled away from the graveyard. When we were near the fence of the graveyard, we jumped back up onto our feet and started running.
Speechless with horror, we sprinted towards the village. We were scared to death and didn’t know what to do next. I glanced over Huck’s shoulders to make sure that nobody was following us. The scene kept on appearing in my head. When I was just about to report the murder, Huck tugged on my hand very hardly. Huck exclaimed that if I reported the murder, I would receive revenge from Injun Joe. I thought about it for a moment and agreed that he was correct. We agreed to a promise and promised with a drop of blood. Even though I agreed that I will keep the promise, I felt that this wasn’t the right thing to do. Every time I shut my eyes, I would see the image again. The event kept on recurring in my head. I questioned myself if this was the best decision and whether I’ll regret

It seemed like we walked forever in the woods until we came upon a clearing in the middle of the woods. It was only about a mile though, where we had to stand and shout out John Bingham’s name until the light appeared. As we were shouting out his name, low and behold a light in the distance appeared. It was far off but you could continuously see it moving closer and closer to us. The temperature changed. It didn’t get hotter but cooler. It was very scary to be in the middle of the woods to start off with, then to see this light coming toward us even after we stopped calling his name was terrifying. We didn’t stand around for it to get to close to us. We all started running as fast as we could out of those woods. There was loud screaming coming from all of us. I remember crying and hanging on to my mom for dear life. When we got out of the woods we looked back and the light was gone. We then began to laugh. No one can say if there really is a ghost out there in those woods or if we let our imagination get the best of us. It could even be someone else playing…
