The Silent Lullaby of Ravenswood
In the heart of Ravenswood, a town steeped in shadows and forgotten by time, there stood the Bellinger Mansion—a decaying relic with a history veiled in mystery and terror. A century had passed since the Bellinger family vanished without a trace on a stormy night, leaving the mansion to crumble beneath the weight of its secrets. Whispers echoed through the town, warning of a curse that bound the spirits of the lost family to the forsaken estate.
Echoes of the Abandoned House
Rain pelted the windows of the old, forgotten house, creating a haunting symphony as thunder growled in the distance. Amelia found herself alone in this eerie setting, house-sitting for her uncle in a remote countryside estate. A solitary figure in a vast expanse of darkness.
Part 4: A Haunting at Vanity Theater
Sadie lights a bundle of herbs. As it smolders, she walks around the candlelit stage, chanting softly. Using her free hand, she sweeps the smoke up and out, allowing it to fill the air with the smell of sage. The smudging ends at the Ghostlight. It stands at the end of the table as if it were a participant. Sadie sweeps the smoke over the light.
Part 3: A Haunting at Vanity Theatre
Sadie is playing Ophelia in “Hamlet.” She should be looking at her scene partner. Instead, she stands gazing at the tech booth. Dave sees her physical body, but it’s as if there's a spectral veil over the actress. Horrified, Dave can't look away. He feels Abby's anguish pulling him down a dark tunnel, and no matter how much he wants to move, he can't budge from his seat.

Unraveling the Secrets of the Mariana Trench
In the huge breadth of the Pacific Sea, where the sun's beams scarcely reach, lies a domain covered in secret and murkiness — the Mariana Trench. As the most profound region of the planet seas, this channel is a position of unrivaled profundity and strain, a domain generally neglected and brimming with insider facts ready to be disentangled.

Part 2: A Haunting at Vanity Theatre
Abby is all amped up. The theatre is a mess, and someone has been playing with the props. "It's always like this during tech week," she fumes. "You'd think they'd get a clue."
Lapis in Aeternum
When a person is stuck waiting in a state of anxiety time itself seems to always stand completely still. The illusion of time standing still always leads to the inner turmoil of what might happen as one is never completely in the know of what will happen, but the possibility of what might happen. The thoughts in Stephano’s mind raced as he waited for a reply from Alexia. Stephano frowned as he felt a twinge of anger that he hadn’t received a reply to his text message to Alexia. He put his phone into his pocket groaning in annoyance and moved to pick up his Dr. Pepper from his desk. The moment he picked it up the icy cold soda became lukewarm. He instantly glared as he took a sip of it not enjoying the taste of the now lukewarm beverage. With his temper now heightened the soda in the bottle started to bubble slightly. Noticing this he started trying to calm himself down as he went into the kitchen and poured the rest of the soda down the sink not really wanting to drink hot soda before throwing the bottle into the garbage. Just as he threw the bottle into the garbage he received a notification on his phone. Taking it out of his pocket he noticed Alexia had texted him back. The text message read.
"Well, well, well, what do we have here?" The target was being inspected. "Chiseled chin, broad muscular shoulders, rippling biceps, and whoa mama! You did not skip leg day! That's good, most members of your sex tend to do that, but you chose not to neglect."
Part 1: A Haunting at Vanity Theater
Practically speaking, a Ghostlight serves as a safety precaution to prevent mishaps in a dark, unoccupied theatre. It illuminates obstacles, set pieces, and other potential hazards. However, theatre people can be a superstitious bunch. Many believe the Ghostlight appeases or honors the theatre's resident ghosts. They claim the light provides a safe path for these spirits to move around the stage without causing mischief. A Ghostlight can also hold symbolic meaning for some professionals. It represents the enduring spirit of the performing arts — even when there's no live audience.
I still can't believe we willingly followed her out there. But I guess we were curious to know if the rumours were true about the old haunted house on the hill.
