|Dont go into a haunted house.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story sleeping over at Nick's. Nick just left, his parents were not good ones. Rich, but never cared for their son. The sun was still see able, but was falling fast. They headed four blocks north-west until they came across a huge house, a wrought-iron fence surrounded the Forrest and the house, the entrance door was locked with a chain and a master lock. It looked almost seven feet tall, and none of them were bigger then five eight. All the sudden a blue Saturn Vue pulled up, rolled down the window and yelled out, "Good, you made it, climb on top of this, and hop over". The top of the iron square bars was a sharp arrow-shaped thing. Nick hopped on it first and jumped over the fence and landed on soft, green grass, surprising for the time of year. " Are you sure that it is okay that we do this", David asked Will. "Yeah, it's fine, no one has been back here for years." "Okay". He hopped up onto the car and jumped over with no trouble. Ty did it next, and also cleared it without trouble. "Nick, will you go into the house, if you find anything cool, just shout our names, we should hear you. David and I will go look for the lost cemetery, we'll do the same, if we find anything, k?", Ty said. All three boys nodded, and walked off. Ty and David paired up. Will turned on the radio, leaned the seat back, closed his eyes, and tapped his foot to the beat. ~ The screen door opened with ease, but the large, wooden door was a struggle, it slammed himself against it a few times, until he herd a !SNAP! as the door swung open. For it being nine o' clock, it was well lit, yet the outside remained dark. Dust covered everything, furniture was covered with a white sheet, it was a very creepy feel in it. He walked up the stairs, saw that the doors were wide open, he stepped into the first room, empty, except a piano, he walked over to it, a dried up rose was was on it's seat. It was so dark red, it was black. He struck a note on the piano, it responded with a horribly out of tune note. He stepped out of it and entered the next room. A bedroom with a cheap wooden casket, another black rose lay ed on its face. He feared to open it, so he stepped into the next room. In it was thirteen candles, burning for infinity, bath was filled with red wine, and inside it was a rotting body of a man. A scream escaped Nick's mouth, as his scream faded, the door behind him slammed shut. He quickly turned around and threw himself at the door. It was stuck. He screamed even louder, throwing himself at the door again and again. Then he saw that the body had gotten out of the bath, it was wearing a tux. He started stumbling to Nick. Nick screamed as loud as he could. His throat was on fire, he still yelled. Then, with an uncanny swiftness, the beast attacked him. ~ Will was listening to the music. He was relaxed. He hummed silently when he herd a small horrible note, he turned down the volume, and listened closely, shortly after a horrible shriek came from the house. He grabbed his ears, trying to escape from the uninevitable. The flashbacks flooded his mind, The slashed throats, the glazed look of death in their eyes, even the damned funeral. They attacked his mind until it was gone. He got up, opened the car door, and climbed on top of the roof, he hopped over to the other side of the wrought iron fence. He started for Ty and David. Sanity depleted. ~ They walked through the pine Forrest. Listening to the owls, and crows. They didn't talk much, it was too creepy for small talk. They wondered until the moonlight shone on a small gravestone, about 50 feet ahead. They ran forward until they saw the perfect circle of grave stones. Thirty were buried, and only 27 gravestones. And yet, it was a perfect circle. They looked at the stones, and saw etched names and numbers. Five black ones were lined in order, the were the first ones killed. Rose's was the biggest. It had a ominous power, unknown to them. "These were the first ones killed." Ty said, looking at the black ones. Then they herd a horrible scream. A few seconds, another and more terrified scream, two more seconds, and the loudest, and most desperate one, it was cut off. "Um...", David said, not knowing what to say. "Look, a well," Ty said, trying to change the subject, mildly traumatised. "It is surrounded by a whole lot of roses, there black.." He said walking over to it. David joined him. They looked down, the moon was full and bright, it showed that the water wasn't water, but wine. Crimson wine. They stared into it for some time. Then looked at each other, each on the other side. Ty frowned, and before he could say anything, David's head was grasped and thrown against the stone of the wells wall. He fell to the ground, blood trickling from his nose and mouth. Ty tried to run off, but Will was too quick and grasped his arm and threw him around, but, when he grasped his arm, Ty saw everything, He saw Will pick up an ax, every thing was faded, he walked up to Rose's room, right in the neck , he put the ax, then he attacked the husband too, he fell without much trouble, then he went after the two twins, both killed with a blow to the head, then to the baby's room, it was thrown. "She was your SISTER", Ty said astonished. His head was thrown against the wall too. He dumped both unconscious bodies into the half full well to drown, he picked up a black rose, smelt it, and held it over the well, and let it glide down, it fell into the water, and floated. He hummed as he left: RING AROUND THE ROSIES POCKET FULL OF POSIES ASHES, ASHES WE ALL FALL DOWN. Tweet
