The Incident at Midnight by Mika Saryo
There were none in some school at midnight. Suddenly something started to move with a blast of wind. Cardboard boxes and trash in every classroom of the school were blown away in no time. Then they were being attracted toward the 6 grade classroom and built gradually. No one knew what was happening there.
The next day, a boy came into the classroom and he could hardly believe what he saw. It was no wonder since there was a monster made of cardboard boxes and trash in the center of the classroom. Bit by bit his classmates arrived on the scene. Some pupils were amazed to see the monster, and others could not speak with astonishment. The babble of voices became bigger and bigger. It was natural that their buss made the teacher in the next room angry. As soon as he came in, he was amazed to see the monster, too. After a while he recovered from his senses and went back his room without saying a word. They took lessons after all. However, bad news travels quickly. It fell into disrepute to be broken down. Though it took many hours to build the monster, it was dead in an instant. The monster made of cardboard boxes and trash never moved from birth until death. Why? I'll leave it to your imagination up ahead.
Ten years later. One midnight, a gathering storm came again…
Madam No. 61 by Miki Nomoto
------- What? I can hear something. I can hear a lot of kindly voices. Yes, I remember. I've just born. I can hear someone saying, "Won't you keep this forever?" I'm very happy to hear that.
But Madam No.61 didn't know that there was something rough for her.
The next day Madam No.61 was broken down, despite it had taken long time to be built. She came to the jumble and kept sleeping for decades without noticing the passage of time.
Scores of years later. All of a sudden the part of the jumble began to move. The monster was built in no time. It was Madam No.61. That's it!
"Why am I living here?" she said to herself. Madam No.61 didn't know where to go, but she kept walking. She knew that her body started to ruin and she didn't have much time left. She fell down after miles and miles walk.
Madam No.61 was only one life on this planet. She knew it well. However she kept walking forward without giving up.
----- I can hear something kindly. Yes, here is heaven!
Madam No. 61 by Hitomi Ogata
There was a huge shadow in the trash pile. It was Madam No.61. She had three ugly heads and a long tail. Her legs are made of cardboard boxes. Her teeth were dirty and she had lots of eyes. She was born at 12:01 in the morning.
"It's cold here. I wonder there is something good to stay." she said to herself. Then she saw a light far away. It was from the 6 grade classroom in Fuchinobe elementary school. When she got to the school, she saw a man working through the window. He was Mr. Bono. She was peeking at his classroom.
A flash light passed. There were children laughing. The children were building something hard. "That is me! But why am I there? I was born before. I was broken apart as if it was every which way." A flashlight come again. The teacher took in the monster and they looked at it. All of them seemed to be worried. But they became to be relieved before long.
"I can't wait for the next flash light! I really want to see the scene." Fump!! When she made a sound, Mr. Bono saw her. For a moment they all grew still. "Are you really coming back? How are you doing?", he said. And then, he told her all about what happened with her. She was born there, and died after being taken a picture. After that she disappeared without trace. But it was true that surely she had existed. A photograph proved that.
''Yes, that's why I am Madam No.61.''

Once upon a time, there was a monster hiding beneath my bed. My leg was dangling on the side when she reached up with her four skinny spaghetti arms and ripped my foot off. What a scary sight she was! She had curly, pink hair in a bun, green slimy skin, one enormous eyeball, red lipstick, a black choker necklace, and a sparkly blue cinderella gown. I dragged myself to the phone and called the hospital. The doctor said to stitch it back on. Thin wire did the job just fine. I yelled out "Ow!" one hundred times, because it hurt so much! I called the police to report the monster. The detectives set a trap and captured her. Luckily, there was an opening at Monsterland, so she was able to go there to live. They fed her spaghetti and last I heard, she never ate people feet again.
