"Are you in trouble?" Lily asked.

Mark turned the corner and was greeted by an empty bus stop. He felt a lump in his throat and his hands trembled. It wouldn't have been a problem being the first one there if the old oak tree that marked the bus stop wasn't rumored to be haunted.
Whispering to himself, Mark wondered, "Where is everyone?" The sun had not fully risen, casting an eerie darkness that made the oak tree appear even more menacing. Usually, the tree served as a gathering place for the kids, where they chatted while waiting for Mr. Meyers to arrive and take them to school. The presence of other children made the bus stop less intimidating. But now, Mark was alone, surrounded by darkness.
The branches of the oak tree swayed in the breeze, and Mark could hear the occasional eerie sound, like an "Ooooh," emanating from its core. Hurrying to the opposite side of the street, Mark tried to keep his distance from the tree. His gaze remained fixated on it, with the bare branches appearing as though they were reaching out to grab him. Once again, he heard the haunting sound, "Ooooh, ooooh."
Summoning courage, Mark called out in a quivering voice, "I'm not afraid of you."
Startled, Will approached from behind, asking, "Who are you talking to?" Mark jumped, relieved to have company other than the tree. Will stared at him, awaiting an explanation.
"I thought I heard something," Mark shrugged, crossing the street towards the bus stop. Will followed suit.
"Maybe you heard the ghost in the tree," Will suggested.
Mark and Will both jumped as something moved within the hollowed-out section of the tree.
"There's something in the tree," Mark exclaimed. He stood on tiptoes and peered inside. "It's an owl!"
"An owl? Is that what's making that strange noise?" Will questioned.
"Perhaps it's injured," Mark suggested. "Let's inform Mrs. Abrams about it when we reach school. She knows a lot about nocturnal animals."
"I guess there's nothing to be scared of now," Will remarked.
"I'm still quite scared of the math test we have today," Mark admitted.

Arianna rushed into the living room where her father was turning off the television. "Well, what did they say?" Arianna asked. Her father shook his head. "Sorry, Sweetie. Only flurries in the forecast. No accumulation."
Arianna sighed. Winter was her favorite season for one reason alone—snow. She loved the fluffy white stuff. It made the trees and ground sparkle. It meant snowball fights, snowmen, and best of all sledding. She'd even gotten a new sled for Christmas. But what good was a new sled without snow?
She pulled her sled out from under the tree. It still had a big red bow on it. "All I really wanted for Christmas was a new sled. But now that I have it, I can't even use it. This is turning out to be the worst winter ever."
Her father patted her shoulder. "There's still plenty of time for snow, sweetie. Winter's only just begun. Give it time and the snow will come."
"Yeah, but winter break will be over soon, and I haven't gotten to use my sled yet."
"What about all your other Christmas gifts? Why don't you play with them? I bet you'll have so much fun you won't even miss the snow."
Arianna sighed. Her father just didn't understand. She grabbed her sled and moved it to the middle of the living room floor.
"What are you doing?" her father asked.
"A snow dance," Arianna said, marching around the sled. She raised her hands in the air and chanted, "Snow, snow, snow."
Her father laughed, but Arianna kept dancing and chanting. She did her snow dance for three straight days before she gave up. She went to bed that night without even checking the weather report.
In the morning she woke up to something lying next to her in bed. She opened her eyes and saw her sled.
"Thought you'd want to get an early start," her father said, sipping on his morning coffee.
"It snowed?" Arianna asked, sitting up.
"The weatherman reported the storm last night. I tried to tell you, but you had already gone to bed. I guess your snow dance worked."
Arianna laughed. "Or I just had to wait until the snow was ready like you said. But either way, I'm going sledding before breakfast!"

Ben sighed, feeling like he was always last in everything. From learning to whistle to losing a tooth, it seemed like he was lagging behind. His older sister, Kate, was known for her bossy nature. She advised him, "Jiggle your teeth. Find one that's wiggly and wobbly." Following her instructions, Ben tried to wiggle each tooth until he discovered the last one was loose.
Encouraged by Kate, Ben attempted to tug the tooth out. However, he mumbled, "Uh! It's stuck in my gums." Kate pondered for a moment and suggested, "Munch on that apple." Ben took a bite, but it only resulted in a painful experience.

Startled, Adam opened his eyes and hastily pulled the covers up to his chin. He scanned the dark room, trying to identify the source of the eerie noises. As if in response, the closet door shuddered under a mysterious force from within.
"Who's there?" Adam's voice quivered with fear.
Gradually, the closet creaked open. Adam leaped out of bed, racing towards the door. With all his might, he slammed it shut using his palms. Frantically, he wedged his desk chair against the handle for added security. Seeking refuge, he hurriedly dashed down the hallway and found his brother's door wide open. Adam hopped onto David's bed, seeking comfort and support.
A groggy David questioned, "Adam? Why are you here?"
Adam tugged at David's arm urgently. "There's something lurking in my closet!"
"Perhaps it was just a bad dream. Go back to bed," David dismissed.
Adam ripped the blankets off the bed in frustration. "It wasn't a dream! I was wide awake, and the closet door started opening on its own!"
Exasperated, David relented. "Alright. But after we don't find anything, you must promise not to disturb me for the rest of the night."
Adam nodded in agreement. David retrieved a flashlight from his desk drawer, and together, they made their way back to Adam's room. Adam paused at the doorway, listening intently to the scratching sounds emanating from the closet door.
"Do you hear that?" Adam whispered anxiously.
David nodded, stepping towards Adam's bed and removing the case from one of the pillows. He carefully opened it.
"You open the door slowly, and I'll grab whatever is inside," David instructed.
Adam shifted the chair aside, gingerly cracking open the closet door. Something forcefully struck the door, attempting to break free. With a deep breath, Adam opened it wider, allowing a small, furry creature to dart straight into the waiting pillowcase.
"I caught it!" David exclaimed, swiftly closing the pillowcase and holding it aloft.
Curiosity piqued, Adam moved closer as David cautiously peered inside. The pillowcase was placed on the bed, and an orange cat emerged.
Adam scooped up the cat in his arms. "Apricot? How did you end up trapped in my closet?"
David chuckled. "Poor Apricot. If I were stuck in your closet with those smelly shoes, I'd be banging on the door too!"
"Poor Apricot," Adam empathized. "You must have been more frightened than I was."
