The Westwood's to Prevail: The Spooky Chateau

It was a dim and turbulent night in the unassuming community of Ravenswood. The breeze cried through the trees, shaking the windows of the old Victorian chateau that sat on the slope. Local people murmured of odd happenings at the house, of spooky sightings and unexplained sounds at a horrendous hour. Yet, the house had been empty for quite a long time, its past proprietor having vanished suddenly.

One night, a gathering of youngsters tried each other to go through the night inside the house. They chuckled and kidded as they cleared their path through the congested nursery, yet as they ventured inside, the mind-set moved. The air was thick with a creepy quiet, broken exclusively by the squeaking of flooring planks underneath.

As the gathering investigated the house, they saw as business as usual. However, as the night wore on, weird things started to occur. Entryways opened and shut voluntarily, shadows moved toward the edges of their vision, and cold drafts appeared to follow them through the house.

As the gathering clustered together in dread, they heard a sound that chilled them deep down. It was a lady crying, a forlorn, tormenting sound that appeared to come from all over the place and no place on the double.

One of the teens, a gutsy person named Emma, chose to research. She advanced toward the highest point of the house, where the wailing appeared to be coming from. As she entered a dim, dusty room, she saw a figure remaining in the shadows. From the outset, she thought it was one of her companions pulling a prank on her, however as the figure ventured into the light, she understood that it was something undeniably more evil.

The figure was that of a lady, yet her skin was pale and spooky, and her eyes appeared to shine with a powerful light. Emma attempted to run, yet the lady connected and got her, maneuvering her into a hug that was just about as downright frigid.

What's more, as they helped her to her feet and advanced out of the house, they realize that they had experienced something a long ways outside their ability to comprehend.

In the long stretches of time that followed, the young people attempted to fail to remember the abhorrences they had found in the manor.

It was the phantom of Abigail, her pale face enlightened by a delicate, spooky light. David froze, uncertain of what to do. However, as Abigail moved toward him, he felt an unexpected feeling of quiet wash over him.

Abigail didn't appear to be furious or wrathful, as such countless phantoms in stories were. All things being equal, she was by all accounts attempting to convey something to him, to share a message that had been lost in time.

David tuned in as Abigail's spooky voice addressed him, telling him of her life and her demise, and of the spirits that actually spooky the house right up to the present day.
