The Mumzels Adventures Story for Jason

Tell ghost stories at slumber party

Night arrived in the city of Erie, Pennsylvania. The streets are dead quiet. Almost all people are asleep, except for a few children.

They had a party at home for Asher’s birthday. Jackson Asher’s friend is staying over and Asher and Brother Shylo’s parents are already sleeping. It was a nice party and therefore Asher, his brother Shylo and their friend Jackson were not asleep yet.

They were so busy telling ghost stories to each other that they didn’t dare to sleep. It was actually quite exciting. Jackson told them about an old house on the other side of town, where an old granny lives with lots of cats.

The house looks dilapidated because all the windows are boarded up. It looks like the old lady living there is preparing for an attack. When the children in the neighbourhood cycle past the house and stand in front of the door, they look at the mess in the garden. The old lady comes out with a broomstick. “GO AWAY” she yells!! “soon the Mumzels will return!!” The children are startled and they quickly cycle away.

Some kids also do it on purpose to tease that crazy old woman, because she always talks about Mumzels, but nobody knows what Mumzels are. Some people say she has so many cats, that they scare the Mumzels away or that she boarded up her house to keep mumzels out. According to neighbours, the old woman is often awake at night and does all kinds of crazy things in the house.

One night, the old lady was shouting in the street that the Mumzels must leave. The police even came by, but they found nothing. They only found the crazy old woman who was very upset and the police advised her to get help, but the old woman refused.

“That’s strange!“ Asher says. “Is she really crazy or are those Mumzels really there?”

To which Asher’s friend replies, “I don’t know, it seems as if they only come out at night because they haunt her house at night. Who knows, she might be possessed!” Suddenly they hear a loud noise on the roof!

“What was that?” Asher’s brother asks. Shhh, Asher yells quietly “listen!” The children hear more noises on the roof, it sounds like footsteps. “Asher, what should we do now?” Shylo asks. Jackson replies: “Shall we go and see? maybe those are the Mumzels.” But what if they are mean and attack us? Shylo asks. “No, I don’t believe that,” Asher says. “I want to know if that crazy old lady is right.”

“Let’s go outside.”

The boys put on clothes and sneak out quietly. If mom and dad wake up, they’ll be pretty angry. Silently, they leave their room and sneak down the stairs. When they arrived downstairs, all they had to do, was to find the keys to the front door, but Asher knew that dad always puts them on top of the fridge in the kitchen. When Asher grabbed the keys, the boys went to the front door, opened it and walked outside.

It was dark and quiet.

“Do you have a flashlight?” Jackson asks Asher. “No, I totally forgot.” Shylo is getting a little scared because he sees something moving in the bushes in the front yard. “Asher, Asher there.. do see you that?”

Asher and Jackson can see and hear it too. Silently they walk towards the bushes. Could it be a Mumzel? At the bush, Asher quickly pulls away the branches, hoping to see something.

The creatures sitting there are startled and flee in all directions. This cause the children to be startled too and to run away while screaming!

“Mom! Mom! Mama” they screamed While they ran inside the house. Mom and Dad woke up and ran downstairs “What is going on here?” Father asks. “What are you doing here?”

“Dad, Mumzels” Shylo, screams. Asher tries to explain to dad that they went to see the Mumzels because they heard strange noises on the roof.

Their Father was angry, “Blaming fictional creatures for going out in the middle of the night with your younger brother and your friend! We don’t think that is a good idea and very dangerous.”

“Off to bed now boys, and do this never again!” Father told them strictly.

Asher and Shylo spoke at the same time “But dad, it really were the Mumzels. Jackson told us about it and now they were out in the bushes.”

“I don’t believe it at all,” father said. “Go to sleep, it was probably a raccoon.”

Asher, Shylo and Jackson walked upstairs, disappointed and recovered from the shock. “Mom and Dad are angry while the mumzels did it…”

Were the boys smart about going out in the middle of the night to search for Mumzels?

Now they know that the old lady isn’t that crazy after all, because Asher, Shylo and Jackson think they’ve seen the Mumzels too.

But what were they doing in the bushes?

The boys still have many questions but they go to sleep quickly before father and mother get angry again.

Maybe it is better to dream about the Mumzels

Then to go out searching for them in the middle of the night.
