Scary stories

White Wolf

Excerpted from Spooky Texas

Retold by S.E. Schlosser

 

    She snapped awake out of a deep sleep, screaming aloud in terror. In her nightmare, a large white wolf had been chasing her around and around the house, gaining on her with every step until it finally pounced on her and ripped out her throat.    She lay shaking for hours, unable to sleep after such a terrifying dream.   
       But morning finally arrived, and the day was completely normal. Celia forgot all about her dream, until the moment her parents reminded her that they would be going out that night to celebrate their anniversary. Celia turned milk-white. In her dream, the white wolf had come to kill her while her parents were out celebrating their anniversary! She started shaking and begging them not to go.   Her parents were astonished at her behavior, and finally shamed her into staying home alone that night. 
     Fearfully, Celia locked herself into the house as soon as her parents left, checking every door and every window. She tried to laugh it off as she got into bed, and finally she shook off her irrational fear and fell asleep.   
      Celia snapped awake suddenly, every muscle tense. She heard the tinkling of falling glass from a broken window, and the snuffling sound of a snout pressed to the floor. It was the sound of a hunting wolf. A werewolf. Real wolves did not break into houses when there was plenty of game outside. She could hear the click-clicking of the creature’s claws on the wooden floor. The musky, foul smell of wet animal fur combined with the meaty breath of a carnivore, drifted into the room.
     She could hear the werewolf’s panting right outside her bedroom. Then her body was out of bed and she sped through the bathroom and down the back stairs. She heard a soft growl and then the sound of animal feet pursuing her as she raced down the steps and tore open the back door. A glance at the window beside her showed a reflection of the werewolf leaping down the last few steps behind her.
     Celia’s  feet screamed in protest as she ran painfully across the sharp gravel driveway toward the tool shed with its shovels and baseball bats. Anything she could use as a weapon.  But the huge, red-eyed wolf was suddenly between her and the toolshed, stalking toward her. The cold wind pierced her skin as she turned and fled around the side of the house. She gasped as the white wolf howled and took off after her. She could hear the terrifying sound of the creature’s pounding feet.
     Faster, faster, she commanded her legs, panting desperately against the fear choking her. She would run around the house and back down the driveway, she thought with the clarity of sheer horror. She felt the wolf snap at her back leg and felt the sting of teeth. She put on speed.
     The wolf veered away from her suddenly, and she felt a rush of hope. She couldn’t hear the wolf now, couldn’t see it in the cloud-darkened night. She kept running around the house, heading back toward the tool shed. To her intense relief, she heard the sound of a car coming down the road in front of her house.  Her parents were back and would save her from the wolf!  
      Then her heart stopped in panic as she turned the last corner and saw the shape of the white wolf as it stood balanced on the porch railing right in front of her. It sprang upon Celia, huge teeth tearing into her flesh and ripping out her throat.  She fell under the weight of its body, hot blood spilling all over the ground, and died seconds after she hit the ground.  One minute later, her parent's car pulled into the driveway, its headlights blinding the white wolf as it pulled toward the house.  Frightened, the wolf backed away from its kill and then ran away.

This is a crazy story. To me,the ending was really surprising. I could picture all this happening.

It was a cool story

omg it was scary but i think they could of added a little more detail to it
to make it cooler nd scaryer !

It was a pretty good story. Made my hairs stand up!

Ha ii Used iiT 4 Meeh English Test Ha iiT Was Kool ...=] O x O x O x O x O x

boo hoo

the story was k but to tell u the truth i think the ending was sucky! HOW COULD U GET CONFUSED WITH CAR LIGHTS WITH A WOLFS TEETH THERE NOT EVEN TAT SHINY! but i admit it was ok but next time do a little bit something more believable lol.......>but i liked the beginning though so keep it up! xoxoxox =)

It was a good story but i think it could of been better than that..but other than that it was a good story

The ending wasn't very clear. Was the werewolf one of her parents?

The story was cool. This was probably the girl dreaming again.

this is sooooooo totally cool but it would be better with a better ending like did her parents find her when they came home from their little date.

do you mind if i use it in refraze for a scary story contest

this story is wack

it was really terrifying

OMG!!!!!!!!!!! i loved this story you should make so scary ones i love scary stories

if that is true then its a cool storie

boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a good story! And quite scary, too! But I wish it had a clearer ending.

There is a longer, much more detailed version of this story in Spooky Texas. This is just the short version.

THIS STORY WAS COOOOOOOOOL THATS BEACAUSE I LOVE SCARY STORY BUT ANYWAY THE ENDING BIT WAS NOT GOOD

this story was a alsome storie you should put more like this or make another one talking about the samething

this is so bbbbooooorrrrriiiinnnngggg!!!!!!!!

THIS WAS THE BEST SCARY STORY EVER.YOU REALLY NEED TOPUT THESE INTO A NEWS PAPPER OR A MOVIE WEBSITE. ANYWAY IT WAS A VERY SCARY STORY I FREAKED MY KIDSOUT WITH THE STORY. IT WAS PRETTY FUNNY TO ME.

i liked it exept the ending i think it was kinda wierd to mistake a headlight from a car from a white wolves tooth???? but i thinkit was awesome!!!!

this was an ok story not to scary though

I missed the part about the toothless vampire.

The toothless vampire had no bite. The werewolf should have eaten at Chick Fil A

omg it was awsome i loved it but a little more detail

Most of these people need to read the story a little more thoroughly before they leave comments. The girl didn't mistake the wolve's teeth for car headlights...the car actually WAS coming up the driveway, it just happened to illuminate the werewolf that she couldn't see anymore. It was a very good story.

totally kooleo!!! lol it isnt that scary tho yo. lol gotz 2 goz lov ya buh bi

OMG k the story was a good one but wear did they get the idea of the were-wolf coming out of "no-where" and suddenly being there in front of her... weird but good...needs more detail-

Raven

wierd story good but the ending was a bit confusing.... xoxox

this story was really good ecept the End that was pretty boring ~but it is really made me want to finsh the stroy !♥

what was suposse to be scary about it?

oh my god that is the scariest story ever!

cool

that was so crazy i really likeed it, was so scary aaaaahhhhhh bad dreams hay

it was an awesome story. i loved the beggining.it was like i woke from a deep nightmare

it was awesome! i was surprised that her dream came true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought it was a good story but it really could've had a better ending. And it couldhave been a little more scary.

this story is so WAHHHH... it makes my hair straight...hehehe...

i like the story.i mean it really freaked me out.i even shouted out as i was reading it.

this was scary. i had a dream one time that these red eyes (that had no pupils) stare at me. i wasn't afraid. then when i went to bed that night, i had the same dreams about the red eyes. it was freaky!

IT WAS COOL BUT THE ENDING WAS BORING AND DETAILS BECAUSE I'M AN EXPERT

this story freaked me out after i read this my white siberian husky puppy looks like the white wolf described and she scared me half to death when she came in from the garden because she had been fighting with our other puppy a german shepherd mix and she had blood all over her. i nearly wet myself from screaming !!!!!:-)

that was a strange story

Why did the white wolf kill her for what? That story was scary.

i didnt find this very scary, just kinda tense. wondering what would happen. i would have climbed onto my roof. the wolf no way wouldv been able 2 fit through my window!

ok story but needed more detail and ending kinda sucked cuz it didnt say anything past the girl dieing =( i was so disapointed!

that was not that freaky but just the part when the white wolf ripped out her throat and she died

I did not find that scary until the part when the wolf ripped out the throat and then she died.

Wow Celia is so lucky. She has the motive to even move when she knows something is outside her door. I would of just grabbed my cellphone and waited and maybe would've gotten killed. o.o

Borring

i agree that no trepassing is the best

this was an okay story but the ending was wierd...... it was good though.

OMG IT WAS ONE OF THE FREAKEST SCARY STORIES I HAVE EVER HEARD

it was 2 predictable

This wasn't scary, but it was pretty good. Just make it more beliveable and put more details in it to make it better :D

yea this was the most rere story ever

OMG. I hate the ' rip out throat' part. Hey guys i'm only 10! I'm hugging my bear for now..........

hm.. strange :)

coolo!

it was strange cuz the ending

diz storry was so lame ive read better in child books it was funy

II TToughTT TThiSS SStorYY WWaSS CCooLL

it was very shocking in a bloody way i can see it now but anime !!WOW!!

everyone who said it was boring are the ones who are bording

this story was sad

IT WAS COOLISH

How did you did the book

I wondered if you could set up some system where when your publish a new article, i get emailed to alert me?

this is sick im copying it out to share with my friends at ingestre hall im gonna scare the crap out of them

now this girl must have been a phsyc

Loved IT!

crap

"spine tingling suspense" as I imagined the wolf getting closer and closer to it's prey! Keep it up!

i need a little more things in it but it was a good crazy storie

what the $%#* !

im obsessed w/ wolves and this story is good but i think it would had been a little better if the wolf gave pitty on the girl and either dragged her of to his pack or just tortured her alittle then left her alone.but i think its one of those stories that just has a blunt ending =/ it ends a little to quickly ...

Did the parents have to come home 1 minute after she died!now i am scared to go to sleep!

one word for this would have to be AWESOME!! loved it favorite part is when her throat gets ripped out! HA HA HA!

omg i live in texas and i had that same dream i got scared...

SCARY STORY!!!

that is gonna give me nitemares now.that is f***ing scary !

this story was wayyy too predictable, what is wrong with youu people, i got soooo scared from all the others, and this was scaryy but, its just basicly, she has a dream, and it comes true, no complications, nothing different, doesn't fight it off, nothing. Big lead up to nothing. Alot could've been done with this story, and the ending was really dissapointing!!

boooooo

wuts up with the end?:S

need better stories! i love scary stories and movies and that is not scary

i KINDA FIGURED THAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN!!!O.o

wow that wz a good story, but the ending coulda been better. other than that it wz really good. but who wz the werewolf? & wat did the parents do wen they saw the girl? but seriously, it wz pretty freaky.

I THINK IT WAS A BORING
STORY I WAS NOT EVEN
SCARED.

EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I don't get it, was it real or a dream? And if she heard the car pull up, why did the parents come 1 minute later? Wouldn't they have been home by then? It was confusing! Oh by the way, I liked this story! :)

kereepy

i love it

it was a pointless story

this was a kick a*% story rly well written we both love wolves and we read it during a thunder storm in a closet with total darkness

I love this story it's my favorite!

The head lights blinded the WOLF not the girl

"One minute later, her parent's car pulled into the driveway, its headlights blinding the white wolf as it pulled toward the house"

.....other than some of the comments this was an awesome story :D

Wow, this was good! You should have added a bid more detail to what everything looked like though, would have made it scarier!

it was good and a bit scary but I didn't really get the ending. did the girl die or not?

WOW!!!!!! This sctory scurred the heck outta me! ill be watching my back from now on!!!!!!!!!

i liked it

OMG!! When I was reading this story my dog started barking on I flipped out!!

awesome story! made me scared, lol

so freakin awsome. :)

It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I can picture it happening.

It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I can picture it happening.

it was a tight and sweet storie loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amazed and scared! i live in Alaska were wolves live!!

Amazed and scared! i live in Alaska were wolves live!!

it was a great story but kind of creepy :]

it was a great story but kind of creepy :]

im super scared of werewolves and im in highschool. im definatly sleeping with a knife next to me tonight

This is the most scariest stories I even read

this was scary and exciting at the same time

Luved it! It was pretty scary ;)

At least you had the smarts to call it a werewolf, because real wolves wouldn't do such things unless they had rabies. Not very scary, but I must say you did put some detail in it. The only reason why I chose this is because I am a wolf lover, and I just wanted to see how scary this really was. No offense on you, but it didn't scare me and I don't think it is scary enough to scare my classmates. This is my homework assignment, so I hope to send shivers up their spines!

I think they should have added a little more to the end like the parents reaction to their dead daughter.

ok how did she hear her parents coming down the driveway before she died and then after she died they came down the driveway

that was actually pretty scary!

it was awsome and a little scary

um i had a dream just like that when i was about 8......but the wolf stayed in the front yard...

oh come on ya'll it doesnt matter how scary it is ... i loved it wolfs are totally my favorite animals so time i do wish i was one lol XD

ok....Why the hell are you criticizing dorkos i bet half of you couldnt wright anything that was half this good without copying (no offense to anyone who said it was a good story)

I loooooove this story!!!!!! It was way to unclear though. I think her Dad turned into the white wolf because he's the person who told her she had to stay alone,right?

what the freak r u guys talking about when you say that they got the white wolf's tooth mixed up with the headlights?
i don't understand this at all.
I loved the story though!
freaking awesome!

You are ready to scare me out of my wits! OMG!!!!!

I found the ending a little bit of a let down, personally.

But I like it. It's a good story.

WOW THIS WAS SCARY BUT THE ENDING WAS CORNY DID HER PARENTS FIND HER DEAD KEEP WRITING STORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!! OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS GOOD

I wonder if her parents found what was left of her body???

it wasn't really scary at all it's just a story thats all.

i loved this story. If anyone finds more awsome ones they should tell me where to read them at.

Really good story... animals attacking are scarier than demons because you can't pray animals away!!!! Nicely done!!

I loved this story. It reminds me of my white dog. Althought it did scare the living daylights out of me.

I heard a story like this before. Except it was a hunter and he was hunting the wolf. His friends found him dead in the woods.

Wow! I don't think I want to stay home alone anymore!!!!

i liked this story very much. it was interesting and suspensful but i knew she hadnt gotten away from the wolf becasue that would have been a very boring story. this is a very good piece of writing. i love it!!!!1

This was so scary I won't be able to sleep alone tonight. I'll gave to get my mom to let my dog Sparky lay with me.

I love wolves but this story is pretty scary it gave my the chills....

Wow the end was really scary ripping out her throat

Why did she run away? She should ask for help by using phone.

This wolf was EPIC!!!!!!!
I don't care want all of the rest of you think. This story needs to be more gruesome.

me again still epic wolf. . . .more blood

i first heard this story in scary stories to tell in the dark

Soooooooooooo
coooooooooool people say this is boring but it awesome!

wow thats really scary

it was kind-of boring. I love ghosts and love to be a ghost hunter but I really want a story that will give me chills.

it was okay

it was good but too short

me and my freinds were sharing a laptop when we came across this story and me or my freinds will never sleep again...ps.I dont want my throat ripped out!

Aw a white wolf sooooo cute.... Uh but it was sad when the girl had her throat viciously ripped from her neck the blood gushing out like a horrendous water fall. Such an awesome story. If I was that girl I would be silent and hide in the bathroom.

awescme

i think i remeber my mother telling me this story haha.... nice.

Best scary story I'v ever heard. Scared me right down to deaths door step. OMG

awsome story i loved it how the wolf won wolves are the best.

awwwwwwwwsooooome THIs was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thats unfortionate for celia.

i would have run down the street to my parents car and banged on the windows beggingthem to let me in.

Ooh so close.

I thought it was okay coulda had a bit more statistics at the end but other than that it was pretty good:)

poor girl! where's her hope?

woah that was pretty scary since it was supposed to be a nightmare. I freaked out
