Day 118 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Create panic in your story.
Shannon: “It’s a fake school skeleton he could have been a teacher or something else,” I pointed out since Mark made such big deal out of it.
“Or he made it look like a fake skeleton,” Mark was stretching it.
“Oh yeah, I’m sure he could make it look that clean,” I pointed to the flawless bones.
“Whatever,” he rolled his eyes before shutting the door. “It’s still creepy to keep something like this in the closet.”

I was about to scowl at her, but suddenly the lights turned off. “What’s going on,” Pete questioned, sounding as nervous as I felt.
