Creaky manor

The house creaky

By Algihpari Published about a month ago 1 min read

Once, in the quaint town of Wobbleton, there was a house that everyone whispered about: the infamous "Creaky Manor." Legend had it that the old mansion was haunted by the ghost of a grumpy librarian who couldn't stand noisy readers.

One stormy night, a group of friends dared each other to spend the night in Creaky Manor. Determined to prove their bravery, they armed themselves with flashlights, snacks, and a hefty dose of skepticism.

As soon as they stepped inside, the floorboards creaked ominously, and the wind howled through the cracks. But the real terror began when they stumbled upon a room filled with books. Ignoring the warnings, they decided to read aloud from the dusty tomes.

Suddenly, the lights flickered, and the shelves started shaking violently. Out of nowhere, the ghostly figure of the librarian appeared, holding a giant "Quiet Please" sign. "Shhhhh!" it hissed, sending chills down their spines.

Panicked, the friends scrambled to find an escape route, but every door seemed to lead back to the haunted library. The ghostly librarian was relentless, shushing them at every turn as they stumbled through the dark corridors.

Just when they thought all hope was lost, one of the friends remembered a childhood rhyme about ghosts being afraid of laughter. With nothing left to lose, they launched into a ridiculous comedy routine, cracking jokes and pulling silly faces.

To their amazement, the ghostly librarian began to wobble and wail, unable to contain its laughter. As it faded away into the darkness, the friends high-fived each other, realizing that laughter was the best weapon against fear.
