I'll make an exception for you.. !


I know in the book Amanda is 12 and Josh is 11 but in this little fanfiction I'm going to make them a little older. So Amanda is 17 and Josh is 15. I don't own these characters or the Goosebumps series I am just simply writing a little story based around it.

Chapter 1

We had been driving for what seemed to be forever, all I could do was sit there and think about how much things had changed so soon.

Don't get me wrong I didn't particularly mind moving house but moving so far away and not getting to see my friends was just torture. I turned to look at my brother Josh sitting across from me, for a 15 year old he really was a whiny little brat!

"I can't believe you're making us move to some lame town I've never even heard off," Josh Grunted.

"Don't worry sweetie you are going to love it both you and your sister are going to have so much space in your new rooms," Mom said, trying to make us feel a little better about this situation.

"I liked my old room just fine," Josh muttered under his breath.

We had come into a bit of a financial difficulty and selling our old house seemed like the only option, Mum & Dad couldn't believe they had found a bigger house for nearly half the price in Dark Falls. It meant dad could focus on the book he was writing and since the house was so cheap in dark falls we had more than enough money from selling our old house to keep us going. It was nice seeing my parents smiling for once instead of the stressful looks I was used to seeing on their faces.

I guess it was up to me to try and make the best of it.

Finally I was starting to see what looked to be a town coming up ahead, and needless to say any little bit of enthusiasm I had faded instantly. The nice warm sun that was shining on my face through the car window had suddenly vanished and was replaced by cold and darkness.

"Oh look kids there's the house! So what do you think? Isn't it great?" Dad asked.

My heart dropped, it was definitely big but it looked so run down and as for the houses surrounding it they were exactly the same they all looked beaten and worn down. There were old trees just curled over and leaves everywhere, not the nice kind of autumn leaves, dead rotting leaves all over the street which was strange considering it was June.

"Oh ye awesome we have officially moved into the Addams Family," Josh moaned.

"Oh cut it out Josh, sure it needs a little bit of work but its home now let's get moving," Dad said.

I got out of the car and helped mom with a few of the less heavy boxes, while Josh just sat there with our dog Petey.

"If you're not going to help Josh you can at least bring Petey for a walk and feed him, the poor thing must be starved from that drive," Mom said.

"Ughhh fine, come on Petey lets go," Josh grabbed Petey and his lead and walked around the side of the house.

"Amanda hunny bring in the blue box next," Mom pointed to me.

"Ok Mom," I said reaching in to the car to get it.

I don't know why but I had the weirdest feeling that I was being watched, I turned around with the box in my hand and stared down the street. God this place was beyond creepy, it was so dark and eerie. …. SNAP!

I whirled around to the direction I heard a noise coming from, it sounded like a branch snapping, I stared into trees in the distance and that feeling of someone watching me became even worse.

"You ok sweetie?" I turned to see my Dad staring at me with a confused look on his face.

"Fine, just thought I heard something that's all," Man this place was creepy.

Ok so this is my first ever fanfiction so please don't be too harsh on me lol hope you guys like it and please don't take it too seriously
