By Harish “Mems” LakshminarasimanPublished 9 months ago 3 min read

It was a dark and stormy night, the kind of night where you could barely see your own hand in front of your face. The wind howled through the trees and the rain beat against the windows of the old abandoned mansion. A group of five friends, each armed with a flashlight, had decided to explore the mansion, which was rumored to be haunted.

As they made their way through the creaky old house, they stumbled upon a room they had not seen before. The room was covered in cobwebs and dust, and a large wooden chest sat in the corner. Curiosity getting the best of them, they approached the chest, and as they opened it, a putrid odor filled the air.

Inside the chest, they found a strange, ancient book. The book was bound in human skin and written in a language they could not understand. As they pored over the pages, a bolt of lightning struck the mansion, and the power went out.

Suddenly, they heard a groan, and as they turned around, they saw a figure slowly emerging from the shadows. It was a zombie, its skin rotting and decaying, its eyes glowing in the dark.

The friends tried to run, but the zombie was too fast. One by one, they fell to its grasp, their screams echoing through the empty halls. The zombie seemed unstoppable, its hunger for flesh insatiable.

As the last survivor cowered in a corner, the zombie slowly approached, its putrid breath filling the air. Just as it was about to strike, a beam of light shone through the window, and the zombie recoiled in fear.

It was the morning sun, and with its arrival, the zombie vanished, leaving behind only the ancient book and the memories of the friends who had lost their lives to the undead creature.

From that day on, the old mansion was avoided by all who knew of its dark past, and the book was never opened again. But the memory of the zombie lingered, a reminder that sometimes, the dead should stay dead.Years went by, and the old mansion was left abandoned, decaying and forgotten. But one day, a group of thrill-seekers stumbled upon it, unaware of its dark past. They decided to explore it, and as they entered the mansion, they found the ancient book that had caused the zombie to rise from the dead.

As they pored over the pages, a feeling of unease settled over them. The language was still unreadable, but something about the book seemed off. Suddenly, the wind picked up, and a low groan echoed through the mansion.

The group of friends froze in fear as they saw the same zombie that had terrorized the previous group emerge from the shadows. But this time, it was not alone. More zombies began to emerge from the corners of the room, their eyes glowing with hunger.

The friends tried to run, but the zombies were too fast. They were quickly surrounded, and it seemed as though there was no hope for escape. But then, one of the friends remembered the book and had an idea.

He grabbed the book and began to recite the words on the pages. As he did, a bright light filled the room, and the zombies recoiled in fear. The friends took this opportunity to run, and as they fled the mansion, they could hear the zombies screeching behind them.

The friends managed to escape the mansion, but they knew that the danger was not over. The ancient book still existed, and it had the power to summon the dead. They vowed never to speak of it again, but they knew that the memory of the zombie would haunt them for the rest of their lives.

As for the old mansion, it was once again left abandoned, a place of darkness and terror. But who knows what other creatures might be lurking in the shadows, waiting for their chance to rise again.
