Scary story in time for Halloweeen

Post by ReCycled » Sun Oct 07, 2018 8:30 am

This is Danbrew's story:

Actually, as a,"scary story" it is, it's great to read the thread by members who were active on the forum in those days. Some very creative writing...;-)

Bueno, creo que sé cuanto duele esto....
I guess how much that aches.... didn't read further on neither, as my finger and toe nails curled up. Memories come up with this story.
Hopefully he doesn't sing in the boy's chorus now.
I have one shot left, don't want to risk the last at all. I am only happy to be able to tell the story and the one or other joke about it.
