horror story

By Emmanuel AndrewPublished 8 months ago 5 min read

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Timmy who lived in a big, old, and lonely house with his parents. The house was located in a remote area, surrounded by dense woods, far away from the nearest town. Timmy's parents were busy with their work and always left him alone in the house. He was a lonely child, with no friends or siblings to keep him company.

One day, while Timmy was playing in the backyard, he stumbled upon a strange looking doll. It was a porcelain doll, with a pale face and dark, beady eyes. Timmy picked it up and took it inside, thinking it would make a nice addition to his toy collection.

As the days passed, Timmy noticed that strange things were happening in the house. He would hear strange noises coming from the attic and the dolls in his room would move on their own. But he didn't want to tell his parents about it, as he didn't want to be seen as a scared little boy.

One night, as Timmy lay in bed, he heard a voice whispering his name. He sat up and looked around, but there was no one there. He lay back down, thinking it was just his imagination. But the voice continued, growing louder and more persistent. "Timmy, come and play with me," it said.

Timmy got out of bed and followed the voice, which led him to the attic. When he opened the door, he saw the porcelain doll sitting on the floor, smiling at him. Timmy felt a chill run down his spine, but he couldn't resist the urge to go closer to the doll. As he reached out to touch it, the doll's eyes began to glow a bright red. Suddenly, the doll came to life and lunged at Timmy, wrapping its tiny hands around his throat.

Timmy's screams echoed through the house, but his parents were too far away to hear. The doll wouldn't let go of him, and Timmy's screams turned into gurgles as the air was squeezed out of his lungs. He lay there, struggling for breath, until he finally fell unconscious.

The next morning, Timmy's parents found him lying on the attic floor, cold and lifeless. They were horrified to see the porcelain doll sitting next to him, its eyes still glowing red. They buried Timmy in the backyard and left the house, never to return again.

To this day, the house remains abandoned, and locals say that on quiet nights, you can still hear the screams of a little boy coming from the attic. It is said that the porcelain doll still roams the house, waiting for its next victim to play with.

Years passed, and the house became a legend among the locals. Many claimed to have seen the ghost of a little boy wandering around the house, and some even said they had heard his screams coming from the attic. The house remained abandoned, and no one dared to go inside.

But one day, a young couple, looking for a fixer-upper to call their own, stumbled upon the house. They were intrigued by the history and the legend surrounding it and decided to buy it, despite the warnings from the locals.

They moved in and began to renovate the house, but strange things began to happen almost immediately. They would hear strange noises coming from the attic, and they would find objects moved or broken without any explanation. The couple soon realized that they were not alone in the house.

One night, the wife woke up to find the porcelain doll sitting on her nightstand, staring at her with its dark, beady eyes. She screamed, waking up her husband, but the doll was gone when he turned on the lights.

From then on, things only got worse. The couple would see the ghost of a little boy wandering around the house, and they would hear his screams coming from the attic. They tried to ignore it and continue with the renovation, but they couldn't shake the feeling of being watched and followed.

Finally, they couldn't take it anymore and decided to leave the house. As they packed their belongings, they found the porcelain doll hidden away in a box. They threw it out and left the house for good.

But even now, the house remains abandoned, and the legend of the little boy and the porcelain doll lives on. Some say that the ghost of the little boy is still trapped in the house, and that the doll is still waiting for its next victim. Some say that if you dare to go inside, you may never come out alive. But one thing is certain, the house on the edge of the woods remains a place of mystery and horror to this day.


The story of the little boy and the porcelain doll in the lonely house is a tale of mystery and horror. Despite the attempts of a young couple to renovate the house and make it their own, they were unable to shake the feeling of being watched and followed by the ghost of a little boy and the curse of the porcelain doll.

Eventually, they were forced to leave the house, and it remains abandoned to this day. The legend of the little boy and the doll lives on, a reminder of the dark secrets that the house holds within its walls. It serves as a cautionary tale, warning others to be careful when it comes to purchasing an old house in remote area, as the past may come back to haunt them.
