    The catcher of souls - Please correct my story

    The catcher of souls
    It was a rainy Saturday afternoon when Julie visited her grandmother at 4 o’clock. They had a hot cup of tea and some delicious scones for teatime.
    Julie told her old grandma about her new school and her new friends.
    After they had finished, Julie went home and wanted to do some homework because it was already 8 o’clock.
    But she would never reach her destination.
    The beautiful girl walked over the bridge of the Thames at a rapid pace because it started to rain. Almost at the end of the bridge she saw a dark clothed person. He looked very old. Julie directly got a goose bumps because the man had completely dark eyes and a snow white skin. She wanted to scream and run away but something held her and she couldn’t move.
    The man walked through her and whispered in a strange voice: “You are mine! I need a new soul.”
    “What? What do want from me? Let me go!”, Julie said full of fear.
    The strange man replied: “I need a new soul. Every 5 years I waited on this bridge to get a soul. I sell this soul to the devil so that I don’t have to go to the purgatory.”
    Julie looked in his dark eyes and knew that he spoke the true.
    “But I don’t want…”she whispered.
    “You’ll go in my position, my dear!”, he laughed.
    She wanted to beg for mercy but the man just clapped with his hands and they disappeared.

    Welcome to the forum.

    It appears that you copied and pasted your post from somewhere else. In that process, a lot of essential spaces between words have been lost (that is a common occurrence). Before we deal with your post, please click on "Edit Post" and add all those spaces.

    When are you going to submit your homework to your teacher/tutor?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: The catcher of souls - Please correct my story

    Thank for your information.
    I wrote this story in Word and pasted it here. I added the missing spaces.

    I do a distance learning for a Cambridge Certification. I have to write a lot of (short) essays but unfortunately only a few of them will be corrected from my teacher.
    That's why I ask this community to correct my text.

    She felt as if the man walked through her and whispered in a strange voice: “You are mine! I need a new soul.”

    Since it was a supernatural occurrence, the statement shouldn't be put so matter-of-factly, should it? Which was the reason why I added "She felt as if.." in front.

    It's a story, and in some stories, ghosts are real.
