It was said to be filled with strange occurrences and perplexing phenomena. The lights flickered, the TV turned on and off, and even the kitchen appliances seemed to come to life on their own. For Alex, Lily, Max, Emma, and Jake, the stage was set for a night of laughter and fun, unaware of the enigmatic events that are making this night very long. Friday evening, the kids gathered at Alex's house, bringing their sleeping bags, snacks, and a sense of excitement that only a sleepover can ignite. They looked forward to watching movies, playing games, and sharing ghost stories late into the night. As robbers descended upon the town. These cunning criminals, skilled in the art of deception, were plotting to steal valuable gadgets and jewellery from the neighbourhood. The kids were sharing stories. Whispers of laughter and the sound of footsteps echoed through the house. A mischievous presence seemed to lurk in every corner, teasing their senses and challenging their understanding of reality.Despite their growing trepidation, the children decided to embrace the thrill and explore the mysterious happenings. With flashlights in hand, they ventured into every room, searching for the source of the supernatural activity. The eerie atmosphere enhanced their imagination, intensifying their belief in the existence of a ghost. In one room, a quick wit sparked clever banter and riddles, leaving the others bewildered by the rapid-fire exchanges. Lily's pranks took on a sinister twist, with hidden figures and ghostly sounds that sent shivers down their spines. Max's trust in the inexplicable added an element of both comedy and terror as he innocently ventured into dark corners, only to stumble upon unexpected frights. Then laughter erupted, which didn't last long. Mingling with the uncertain shadows that danced on the walls. Meanwhile, a playful and foolish energy infused the air and vanished. . leaving a trail of confusion and laughter in its wake. Objects shifted and disappeared, only to reappear when least expected. The friends found themselves caught in a web of tricks and illusions, their minds unable to grasp the truth that lay just beyond their reach.The robbers outside the wall who were playing with the electronics lost control of them.Voices echoed through the speakers as they cautiously approached to turn the switch off. The laptop screen flickered to life, revealing old CCTV footage of the very spot their house stood on before it was built. Shocked and bewildered, the kids watched as the footage revealed secrets from the past, hinting at a forgotten history.An irresponsible breeze whispered through the house, creating a cacophony of forgotten tasks and misplaced items. In the midst of the chaos, a figure moved silently, observing the events with detached intrigue.With adrenaline coursing through their veins, they followed the eerie sounds that led them to the home's study. The boundaries between reality and illusion blurred, leaving the friends questioning their own sanity and the very fabric of their existence.It wasn't until the early hours of Saturday morning, just before dawn, that they could hear the cold clock ticking. All the kids scattered to open all the curtains, and the truth began to unravel. Exhausted and on the verge of surrendering to sleep, one of the kids accidentally knocked over a table, causing a tablet to fall from its surface. As it hit the ground, the tablet sprung to life, displaying an unexpected image. The friends found themselves spotting the robbers moving across the lane with heavy suitcases in their hands. Alex rushed to find a mobile and call the police.And then, as dawn approached, the pieces of the puzzle fell into place.
