How scared are you?

Level 1: A Fun Type of Scared.

When you are watching a scary movie, or exploring a haunted house, you can’t help but notice all the little silly costumes or the irregularities, proving it to be fake. You laugh at things that are meant to be terrifying you, and joke about the fakeness of it all.

Level 2: Close Your Eyes

You can’t handle watching anymore. You quickly shut your eyes and wait for the whole thing to be over, only opening them when you are sure that you are safe. You then laugh about how scared you were.

Level 3: Hide

You don’t want to see or hear any more things that scare you. You run to a corner and hide until you are sure it is safe. Then you come out and wait until you get frightened again and once again retreat to your corner.

Level 4: Scream Out Loud

You cannot contain your screams when something jumps out at you in a haunted house or whenever a movie scares you. The suspense has you waiting for the fear. However,  you quickly shake it off and move on until the next scream erupts.

Level 5: Shaking in Your Boots

Your legs can’t handle the fear anymore. With every step you take your legs seem to weigh more and more. You can’t stand all the little sounds that seem to get closer and closer. You’re shivering with fear.

Level 6: Pee Your Pants

Sudden noises have you jump out of your seat. You hear whispers that you know aren’t really there. Your heart beat gets faster and faster as the fear engulfs you. Your friends make fun of your fear towards the smallest of sounds. You can’t take the fear anymore. You leave before it has the chance to completely scar you.

Level 7: In Need of a Therapy Session.

The chills crawling up your arm never seem to go away. Every sudden movement has you shaking in your shoes. Loud noises have you huddled in a ball on the floor, sobbing from fear. The fear itself is so overwhelming that your own heart beat can be heard throughout every moment. The experience has you scarred for life, leaving you forever altered.
