                            The Legend of Herobrine
         Have you ever heard of the legendary Herobrine? If you do, you would know that Herobrine has haunted OHS for approximately two years, but nobody knows. Legend has it that he stays in one spot throughout the day, a place that is supposedly called Mod 2. Some claim that they have seen him, although they have not. No one knows exactly what he looks like, but I do.
       I see him almost every day, despite the fact that everybody else doesn’t. He is very quiet; in fact I have never heard him speak before. He is a very horrifying character. He wears a blue shirt with tattered, purple pants, and he wears normal grey shoes. One thing that came a shock to me is that he has no colors in his eyes. He also has brown hair. He is a careless person and can be rude and impolite.
       Sometimes if you are lucky, you can hear Herobrine moaning. Some say that he is a deceased miner who had dug to far down and fell to the center of the Earth. No one knows exactly how he came to be. He haunts those who deny that he exists.  He is strange to me because he can teleport to any destination of his choosing. He is generally a horrific character. He is a mystifying creature that doesn’t intend to leave.

 Hogwarts Feast
     As I wandered into the Great Hall, I saw lightning, and heard roaring thunder crackle.  Above my head were floating pumpkins.  I sensed magic in the air.  I immediately knew this would indeed be a fantastic feast. The hall was gigantic and unrealistic.  Out of nowhere a swarm of midnight black bats flew from their hiding places.  I heard some kind of echoing or moaning coming from the far distance.  Their was a strong, pungent smell. The candles up above left a burning smell to the sweet corn.  The air seemed musty and tightly packed, I could hardly breathe.  Instead of making a big deal of the strange sounds and smells, I centered my attention on the Great Hall.  Suddenly I noticed little white ghosts floating about.  I wondered why I hadn’t seen them before. Everything seemed as if it was from a different dimension.

Finally, we sat down to enjoy the feast.  I noticed that the lustrous, golden plates were empty.  This made me think for what seemed like an eternity, until the chattering ceased, and silence followed.  What happened next came a shock to me.  A man stood in his chair and announced “ Let the feast begin!” Suddenly, the plates magically filled themselves with endless amounts of tender, mouth- watering food.  There was tons of turkey, chicken, pumpkin pie, cookies, beef, pork, and mashed potatoes and gravy.  I had a tough time deciding what to try first.  I decided to try the turkey and the chicken first.  Wow!  I slowly eat the food, in order to make sure that I don’t make a fool of myself. Everyone at the table eats quietly, so I do the same.  No need for any unwanted attention anyway.  After I have respectfully eaten, and kept quiet the games and activities begin.

As I look around I see kids playing games that I am unfamiliar with. Many of the midnight bats have disappeared and the little white ghosts are gone and the pumpkins floating above me are gone as well. This is a shock to me. Although I’m not sure why all these events have occurred in this short amount of time, I decide to join in on some of the activities that I did when I was younger.  I also see children riding on a witch’s broom stick across the ceiling of the Great Hall.  Suddenly, all the candles that were lit throughout the feast, were blown out.  Now the Great Hall was pitch black.  I no longer heard the squeaking of the midnight bats.  At first I was worried, then I remembered that this was the beginning of the next activity.  I relieved myself from all worry and played flashlight tag with the other children. Soon the activities were over and the feast came to an official end.  I returned home and told everyone of my experience, but I will never forget the unforgettable Hogwarts Halloween Feast.

Nursery Rhyme

"Baa, baa, white sheep..."
Baa, baa, white sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full;

One for the master,
The next for my dame,
another for the young boy
That lives
down the lane.
