Ribbon Ribbon
by Bethany


In a small suburban area, their lived a very rich, but small family. A man called Robert Danford had married a lovely young woman called Talia Richards. After getting married and moving into a large house on the country side, Talia gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. After hours of fighting, the happy couple decided to call their baby Natasha.

When Natasha turned 3, she started wearing a long red ribbon around her head. No matter where she went she kept the ribbon on. Her parents were curious about the ribbon but just pushed the subject aside.

When Natasha started going to school all the kids in her class would touch the ribbon or try to pull it off. When they tried she would chant, "Ribbon Ribbon on my head. Pull it off and you are dead!" The kids started to get scared. They never went near Natasha except for a little boy called Harold. Harold didn't care if the ribbon was a bit strange, He thought Natasha was gorgeous.

In High School Harold asked Natasha if she would like to be his girlfriend. Natasha was so happy that she was his girlfriend. Ever since Harold stayed by her side when the other kids were scared of her, she had always wanted him to ask her.

On their 3rd date, Harold asked about the ribbon. Natasha started chanting, "Ribbon Ribbon on my head. Pull it off and you are dead!" Harold did not ask again.

After going out for 7 years Harold asked Natasha to marry him. Harold was staring at Natasha's ribbon remembering about her chanting when Natasha said something. Natasha said yes. Overjoyed, they started planning their wedding straight away. Harold completely forgot about the ribbon.

The wedding was a blast. Late that night after the wedding Harold asked about the ribbon. Natasha started chanting "Ribbon Ribbon on my head. Pull it off and you are dead!" Harold decided not to bother his new wife with the stress of telling him why she wore the ribbon, So he left the question and never mentioned it again.

Harold was sick. Very sick. There was nothing the doctors could do because it was so serious. Harold was in so much pain. Finally after so many years Harold asked about the ribbon. Instead of chanting the usual thing, she chanted something different "Because Harold you are nearly dead, you can pull the ribbon off my head." Harold reached up to the ribbon and pulled it off. Natasha's face fell off and underneath was the face of a demon. Natasha Transformed into a big green monster and killed Harold.

That afternoon when Natasha was back to normal she went out to town. There she met a handsome young man who was very nice. The man and Natasha started spending time together when the man asked about her ribbon. She started chanting "Ribbon Ribbon on my head. Pull it off and you are dead!" The man did not believe her and took the ribbon off her head. There was a scream and the ribbon fell elegantly to the ground.
