Second place, Ages 9-13

One windy afternoon a 7 year old girl was out shopping with her mom at a thrift store. The girl saw a Barbie doll and asked her mom if she could have it. The mother said it was okay as long as the sales clerk said it was. The clerk said sure but remember do not take the doll out of the box.

The girl made it home and after dinner decided she would play with her new Barbie doll. She disregarded the clerks warning to not take the doll out of the box. She played with her new Barbie doll until bedtime. Her mother tucked her in and said good night. Her parents went to sleep.

The girl was suddenly awakened and decided she should get a drink of water. She heard a voice singing "Barbie doll Barbie doll on the 1st step" so the girl called out for her mom. Her mom asked what is it? The girl said in a quivering voice I just heard something. Her mom told her it was okay & to just go back to bed. The girl tried to go back to sleep but she heard it again "Barbie doll Barbie doll on the 5th step". The girl jumps up, runs to her parents room and ask if she could sleep with them? Her mom says "fine honey just go to sleep". Before she could close her eyes she hear again "Barbie doll Barbie doll on the 10th step" the girls says mom please crying "can you close the door" her dad gets out of bed a closes the door. The girl still frightened she runs to the closet & close the door. The girl still hears "Barbie doll Barbie doll has entered the room" She hugs her bear tightly and began to rock & pray. She then hears "Barbie doll Barbie doll now your parents are dead". She screams terrorized with fear as the door opens, she can see that her parents are dead. She's shaking and crying out as she hears "Barbie doll Barbie doll now you're going to die" As she begs "please please" she feels a pain in her heart and realizes she has been stabbed. The Barbie doll smirks and walk away as the girl lies helplessly on the closet floor.

The Barbie is still on the loose and who knows you might be next "Barbie doll Barbie doll I'm coming for you"!
