Willow Lake had forever been a position of secret and strange notion. Legend had it that a young lady had suffocated in the lake a long while back, and her phantom tormented the region, looking for vengeance on anybody who thought for even a moment to upset her rest. Be that as it may, Sarah didn't have confidence in that frame of mind at any rate, not until she saw the nebulous vision with her own eyes.

It was a dull and blustery night when Sarah and her companions chose to set up camp by the lake. They chuckled and kidded as they set up their tents and fabricated a fire, yet as the night wore on, a feeling of disquiet settled over them. Peculiar clamors came from the forest, and the breeze cried like a sorrowful phantom.

As they sunk into their camping cots, Sarah heard a weak murmuring in her ear. She sat up, her heart beating in her chest, and saw a shadowy figure approaching over her. It was the apparition of the one who had suffocated in the lake, and she was enraged.

As Sarah went out, she realize that she had tracked down her actual calling. She would use whatever is left of her life helping other people who were tormented by heavenly powers, and at absolutely no point in the future would she misjudge the force of the unexplored world.

Apparitions and spirits are genuine, and they can be perilous on the off chance that not approached with deference. Yet, with information and readiness, it is feasible to deal with them directly and come out triumphant.
