One school day, a boy named Tom was sitting in class and doing math. It was six more minutes until after school. As he was doing his homework, something caught his eye.
His desk was next to the window, and he turned and stared outside. It looked liked a picture. When it was home time at the school, he ran to the spot where he saw it. He ran fast so that no one else could grab it.
He picked it up and smiled. It had a picture of the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. She had a dress with tights on and red shoes, and her hand was formed into a peace sign.
She was so beautiful he wanted to meet her, so he ran all over the school and asked everyone if they knew her or have ever seen her before. But everyone he asked said “no.” He was devastated.
When he was home, he asked his older sister if she knew the girl, but unfortunately she also said “no.” It was very late, so Tom walked up the stairs, placed the picture on his bedside table and went to sleep.
In the middle of the night Tom was awakened by a tap on his window. It was like a nail tapping. He got scared. After the tapping he heard a giggle. He saw a shadow near his window, so he got out of his bed, walked toward his window, opened it up and followed the giggling. By the time he reached it,
it was gone.
The next day again he asked his neighbors if they knew her. Everybody said, “Sorry, no.” When his mother came home he even asked her if she knew her. She said “no.” He went to his room, placed the picture on his desk and fell asleep.
Once again he was awakened by a tapping. He took the picture and followed the giggling. He walked across the road, when suddenly he got hit by a car. He was dead with the picture in his hand.
The driver got out of the car and tried to help him, but it was too late. Suddenly he saw the picture and picked it up. He smiled. He saw a cute girl holding up three fingers…

THEN WHO WAS GRILL?
I’ve heard many stories with this premise. The grammar is pretty weak. Frankly, I would’ve found it more interesting if the boy appeared in the picture with the girl. It would’ve been an expectable twist, but a better one that was actually given.
good concept but it was not well written i got lost half way through
Not really sure what to make of this one… Not very well written but it was okay
It must be the name of the girl from the picture?
that was scary :D I like this one :D
Nice one! Not too well written tho.
I have seen this type of pasta before. What happened was a girl bought a doll that had something like six fingers on one hand, and the doll killed off the little girl and her mother. After that, there were eight fingers on the doll. The girl had been warned fairly. She didn’t listen… Anyway, this pasta is good. It just needs a little work. I kinda want to know what happens when she gets to victim number six. The beginning was okay, the middle needed a ton of work, and the end was bland. Overall, not a very scary pasta. 5/10 is my rating for this pasta.
Woman man,they’ll do it to you every time. Jk good pasta 6/10
Oh no another death………. 10/10
so if you hit someone but saw a cute girl in the picture you will just smile and totally forgot you HIT a person??
Cool concept, bad execution.
Hey…. I really love this one.
I’d like to make a short noncommercial movie based on this story. Could anyone tell me who the author is? I’d like to ask him for permission.
Omg I was like why is she holding 3 fingers? Then I was like oh shit! That was a 10 out of 10 in my opinion.
It didn’t make sense and I think it would more sense if it had more creepyness in it.
O, Welcome Dear Bringer of Anguish
What happens when more than ten people die?
fuck fuck fuck i have the picture, but its different; no fingers. yet
Kinda weird that he just ran over a man and he still smiled over a picture he found on the road.
I liked this pasta but I don’t get the three fingers thing, is it meant to be the peace sign?
Ok this was ok at the begging but at the end when the fingers changed that wasn’t a bad ending but still needs work on it. If you put more tension in it would amazing. All you did was say the same thing over they said no. He got hit by a car. Put some interest into it!!!
Haha that was brilliant
im just confused
esta buenoo…igual lo contaria diferente… :D
Haha, that was great.
Short but sweet.
I heard something a lot like this but with a Barbie doll
hmm this was nice but I think it could be a little bet better :3
So she’s counting the amount of people that died over her or w/e?
I’ve heard this concept before, except it was with a doll. I liked this new portrayal, except it needed a little more scare factor to it. The way it is written could also use a little work.
Could have been better, still a great story, I can see a lot of new versions of it coming out. :)
The car driver then, dipped the picture in gasoline, and threw a match on it.
really tasty, man! keep up the good work!
I FUCKING LOVED THIS STORY!!!!!!!!!
Lucy…. I’m in the kitchen….
Lucy…. I’m on the stairs…..
Lucy…. I’ve killed your brother….
Lucy…. I’m at your door….
Who remembers this as the original campfire story….?
At the end of it I let out a little gasp.
the writing style was not amazing, but it was a great story.
This may be a really stupid question but I really don’t get the girl’s hand signs. What do they represent?
That driver is a dick.
Beatuiful girl, counting how much people were killed, tricking people to be killed, jolly good story might, jolly good indeed
you need to put a picture of THE RAKE the story is not that scarey unless you have looked on THE RAKE i was in the woods hunting wen i was hedding to the truck wen i had my phone out going to take a pic of my deer in the headlights i sol THE RAKE i went in the truck and went home but my friend was in the woods the nex day he was dead that is my story THE END???
The ending was pretty good. I felt like there should have been a little more to it though.
i didn’t get it at first, but then my friend said “she had two fingers held up first, and then when the boy died, and the driver found the picture, she had three fingers held up.” … Ohh! now i get it *face palm* Very good twist at the end.
This story reminds me of a clown doll story I tell my friends. I honestly dont remember where i heard it from but it reminds me of it.
A little girl find a clown doll at the store, so her mother bought it for her. The clown holds up a finger for ech victim, then at 5 victims he points to the little girl and chases her with a knife then kills her.
I’ve read this story before from another site.
Brix shat. Oh and BUT WHO WAS HOTTIE IN PICTURE?
I know I heard this on other site.It was a bit shorter,tough.Without all the questions to the neighbors.BOO.I liked it.
No. Everytime somebody new is dead after finding the girl’s photo, one new finger in the photo is held up. Counting deaths.
Anyway, tasty pasta, I thought. I absolutely loved the ending. (:
I thought it was funny, he said she was making a peace sign but she actually had 3 fingers. He was almost blind or something and and didn’t notice, then he got hit for the same reason lol
LOL. Is it wrong if I found this hilarious?
ROFL @ Flea!
I was going to type up a paragraph about the guy smiling at the end, but Impulse summed up exactly how I felt.
Kid: \"OMG A PICTURE!!! I MUST HAVE IT!\" -Waits until school gets out.- \"I have to get that picture I saw! I don\’t know why, I just want a random picture I conveniently saw lying on the ground!\"
Well the concept was good but it failed in the end when the guy smiled. He just hit someone with his car! There’s no way a sane person would smile in that state of panic. Totally killed the mood.
lol “home time”
I liked the concept but it was terribly written which ruined it.
…Heh. If she counted in Binary, then she would eventually be giving the person viewing the picture the finger
“When it was home time at the school.”
That is the oddest wording I’ve ever heard. Good idea, bad presentation.
I like how he’s like
Then he was like
Aww… pretty lady =D
@Richard, come on, of course its not a true story, and to say that it doesnt make sense it stupid because it does, i liked it, what doesnt make sense is why you would tell us you are 55 years old, married with 2 kids and live in new york?? who cares?
BUT WHO WAS BOY?
this is a good one.
Creative idea, really, and good ending. But not well written, at all. I would re write this…but keep the same plot.
Hrmmm… I think I would have really liked it if I hadn’t heard a similar story from my little brother. It was basically the same, but with a little girl and a hippie doll. Pretty well written, though.
I am 55 years old, I live in New York, and I have a wife and two kids. This doesn’t make sense to me. The ending could have been better with “he saw a cute girl holding up one finger.” That would have been a better ending in my opinion.
There is also no way this story is true. If this story were true, who is the person stalking the first guy? Then how does he conveniently find the second guy as well? This story does not make sense.
Nice, but if that was me I would’ve put that bitch into a Camora and break her fucking arm.
Haha, somebody made a movie version of this! Its AWESOME!
see my story and you will know
one of the better ones I’ve read. Nice job.
BUT WHO WAS GIRL?
THEN WHO WAS GIRL?
Sadly, it took me to the very end of the comments to figure out why people were talking about numbers…
I wonder who was first, and why they weren’t lying dead in the place where the boy found the picture…
After her tenth kill she could start counting in binary! With ten fingers that’s 1023 kills! That would certainly take a while… And if she’s willing to use her feet as well, she could kill 1048575 douchebags!
Oh, the possibilities are endless!
BUT THEN WHO WAS GIRL?!
Like truck drivers are like that:
“OMG I killed a perso- OH LOOK a picture”
i heard that one, too. so this one made me giggle. :/
I heard something just like this once-
There was a blonde taking a walk who found a burnette on some train tracks, just jumping up and down and chanting ’41, 41, 41, 41…’ over and over.
The blonde asked her what she was doing a few times, and then jumped up onto the train tracks and joined the burnette.
A train come thundering down the tracks and the burnette jumped off, leaving the blonde to get hit.
The burnette jumped back on immidiately after the train left, and began to chant: ’42, 42, 42, 42…
The way I say it, it doesn’t sound very much like a dumb blonde joke… ;-_-
What if I see the picture in google images? Will I still die?
should be re-written, but it’s still scary as shit.
Very intresting this story has distracted me. You may leave…..Hey a picture….Damn nice ass
The reason why this needs to be re-written is it includes a lot of bullshit that adds pointless information to the story. It takes focus off what you’re supposed to be paying attention to and draws attention as well to shit you don’t even need to read. It’d just be better if it was shorted overall and included less crap.
Can someone explain to me what Pete Wentz has got to do with his pasta? o_0
Creepy story, but I laughed out loud when it said ‘he smiled’. “Yeah, I just drove over and killed a kid, but awww, what a cute girl.”
@ 35 and 37
I think you guys just converted me to a lesbian. o_o
Nice pasta, though. :3
Ending was good, rest of it wasn’t so great.
BUT WHO WAS GIRL?
Girl was Rose
Read The story of her holding an orange for the description.
I don’t remember reading this one. Strange. Mr.Welldone can we be friedns?
Wow you have done a very good job i dare say. :0
LOL what a whore!!!
not well written but it scared me
also, why would the driver pick up what was in the kids hands? =\
i certainly wouldn’t
and i agree with The Joker hehe
The ending gave me goosebumps!
The beginning wasn’t very well-written.
Still liked it!
Three thumbs up!
What the hell is wrong with kids today?
In my day, you heard a tapping at your window followed by a giggle, you armed yourself!
i totaly didn’t c the ending coming that waz awesome ;)
If I jizz all over the picture, no other man would pick it up. Problem solved.
LOL This was ao awesome!!
I would pick it up and masterbate on the girl’s face. No one else would pick up the picture if they notice theres jizz on it. Problem solved.
When she gets to 11, the 11th victim replaces her and starts from 0.
FUCK LOL this shit is creepy to the max, if i ever see a picture like that im not picking that shit up.
this one is great
she did it for the Lulz
This was really good but confusing at first. The ending really got me. Very creative.
She just starts counting in binary, duh! Then she will be all set to, what, 2^10=1024?
What you said, that joke…
It was on a beer ad, ages ago. At least I think it was beer?
I don’t see what was unnecessary and what needs to be re-written, it’s just fine.
Yep! Chicks are devious bitches, the whole lot of them are a bunch of malevolent scheming harlots.
-_______- I may be devious, malevolent, and I do tend to come up with some pretty evil plans but… I AM DEFINITELY NOT A “HARLOT”!
and who is Pete Wentz?
Very good tale!
Greetings, Mr. Welldone.
I emphasize ‘freedom.’
You fall to another punishment.
Become a different kind of victim.
Heed the siren’s call, reader.
A fantasy creature?
Wow. Very nice one.
this is cool! I’ve heard diffrent versions of jokes like this.
shes like mermaid
With this particular occurrance, there is no eleven, no twelve, no thirteen, no fourteen, no fifteen, no sixteen, no seventeen, no eighteen, no nineteen, no twenty, and no twenty-one.
There is only freedom.
I believe he was referring to the number of fingers,not freedom.
I really like this creepypasta.
And I like flea’s story.
That was cool/creepy
Only problems I can see are fairly bad writing and the obvious question of what would happen after her eleventh victim. Either that one or #21.
She could always start from 1 again, this boy could’ve been #33 *shudders*
I really like this one.
Perhaps what would frighten most more is that such pictures and other relics of this kind are numerous and much slower to take effect.
I daresay many carry such a relic with them even now. Especially those reading such things as this.
The only relic I have is the morphic cube.
You are not me, stop stealing my name!!!
I’ve seen a variation involving a toy doll that kills kids.
Chucky? Or am I thinking of the wrong diabolical doll?
I loved the story :DD
The bunch in the middle was quite unnecessary though. But still the idea rocked.
that was really interesting so the truck driver’s gonna die
I loved this story It was very interesting ;-)
Hehh… reminds me of a joke my father used to tell me:
A man, while wandering by an insane asylum, hears the inmates inside the yard–on the other side of a large, obscuring, stone wall–chanting, “Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!”
Curious, he pauses and tries to strain to make sure he’s hearing it right. As he’s listening, he notices a chink in the stones that make up the wall, and decides to see what could have made them all so excited.
He looks into the hole, which just so happens to be at eye level, and suddenly recieves a poke to the eye from a dirty finger.
As he’s reeling back in shock and mild pain, blinking it away, he hears the crazies take up a new chant, “Fourteen! Fourteen! Fourteen!”
That was a great one.
Nice concept, but some of the stuff in the middle isn’t really necessary. (someone was on /x/!)
LAWLZ HAY PETE WENTZ WAZZUP?!?!
We need to rewrite this :/ The idea isn’t too bad.
ZOMG WUT AN OSSUM STORYYYY!
Bro, do you even English?
Do either of you know English?
Bro, its a joke. A well known joke at that.
Slightly confusing beginning, but great ending.
good idea, not especially well-written.
haha, that was a really good one
