"The Dark"

March 28, 2015 is Earth Hour Day. Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet by turning off lights for one hour at the same time all over the world.

Is The Dark a scary story? A boy named Laszlo was afraid of the dark. The dark lived in his basement. Laszlo hoped the dark wouldn't come to his room. Then...
