A boy named Ryan climbed into the attic, his favorite place. On a shelf, Ryan saw a book called, Doom Clown: The Worst Joker.
“Read me,” said a voice coming from the book.
“I’m not sure that’s a good idea.”
“If you say ‘Doom Clown’ three times, I will be free and yours to read and make you laugh foreverrrr and everrrr.”
Ryan ran downstairs to his brother Jack’s bedroom to tell him what happened.
Jack said, “I bet that clown’s not very funny. Say his name three times, and let’s see what happens.”
Ryan said, “No, you!”
“Fine, scaredy cat,” Jack said, and he repeated ‘Doom Clown’ three times.
They heard a thump in the attic, and then a scratch on the door.
Jack opened the door, and there was Doom Clown, with a scary smile.
“Thanks, little boys!” he said. “Come closer, and give me a hug!”
Jack and Ryan screamed and ran.
