The Abandoned House
There was an old legend, about this abandoned “mansion”. It was about a century old. When people lived there no one knew what happened to them. Some say that ghosts took their souls. Some say they vanished out of thin air, and others simply said they moved. No one believed it.
Three kids Josh, Eric, and Marie all decided the legend was dumb and they went to the house. After 15 minutes they were there. They walked in and they looked around, They dared to stay the night. Josh went to get some firewood. When he got the fire started they told stories, Marie decided to let the boys have their “guy talk”. So she went upstairs to put her bag in a room.
The boys all of a sudden heard a scream from upstairs. Eric and Josh were terrified. They boys slowly walked upstairs. When they got upstairs Eric said, “Marie?” They heard footsteps in the room at the end of the hall.
They went in the room and saw something dragging her, and then it disappeared. They saw Marie dripping in blood on her arm and a little bit from her head, dead. The boys looked at each other in shock then looked back at Marie. Josh looked away for a second to find the thing that killed her then, he heard another scream. He looked at the place Eric once stood. He had dropped dead, too. (You will have to wait to find out the ending!)
