Don’t go into the cornfield!

Annie isn’t frightened of the rows and rows of corn that grow behind her house. That is, until her grandmother warns her that the devil lies in wait, ready to gobble up any bad children that wander through the shadowy stalks.

Fearing for her life, Annie promises to be a good girl and steer clear of the forbidden ground.

Then Paul moves in next door.

He’s cruel. He’s dirty. He curses. He is exactly the kind of boy that would be a succulent treat for the beast. So, when Paul wants to explore the train tracks just beyond the cornfield, the words of Annie’s grandmother snake through her doubtful mind. Could the old wives tale actually be true?

Will she risk her life and soul to follow Paul, or will she heed the warning before it’s too late?

The story sounded promising, got off to a good start but it went off the tracks as you started getting into the story. What could have been a good cornfield terror story left the cornfield and into a mess.
