Lost and Trapped: The Horror of Taking the Wrong Turn

Horror Wrong Turn

By Everleast ViralPublished 6 months ago 3 min read

It was a dark and stormy night. Sarah was driving home from work, exhausted after a long day. She had taken the wrong turn and ended up on a deserted road. The rain was coming down hard, and she could barely see through the windshield.

She tried to turn around, but the road was too narrow. She continued to drive, hoping that she would find her way back to the main road. But as she drove on, the road became darker and narrower, and she began to feel uneasy.

Just as she was about to give up, she saw a signpost that read "Dead End." Sarah cursed under her breath and tried to turn around, but her car wouldn't start. She tried again, but it was no use. The rain was coming down harder now, and she was starting to panic.

She got out of the car and walked in the direction of the signpost. The rain was now pouring down, and she could barely see a few feet in front of her. She walked for what felt like hours, hoping to find help.

Suddenly, she saw a light in the distance. She ran towards it, hoping that it was a house or a gas station. As she got closer, she saw that it was an old, abandoned mansion. The windows were boarded up, and the door was locked.

She was about to turn around and leave when she heard a noise from inside. It was a faint whisper, but she could make out the words. "Help me," the voice said.

Sarah hesitated, but her curiosity got the better of her. She pushed the door, and it creaked open. She stepped inside, and the door slammed shut behind her.

The mansion was dark and damp, and the air was filled with the smell of rotting wood. She walked down the hallway, following the sound of the voice. It led her to a room at the end of the hall. She pushed the door open and saw a figure lying on the bed.

"Help me," the figure said again. Sarah approached the bed and saw that it was a woman. She was lying on the bed, her face covered in bruises and cuts.

Sarah asked her what had happened, but the woman didn't respond. She just lay there, looking at Sarah with a vacant expression.

Suddenly, Sarah heard footsteps outside the room. She turned around and saw a man standing in the doorway. He was tall and gaunt, with piercing blue eyes that seemed to stare right through her.

Sarah tried to run, but the man was too fast. He grabbed her by the arm and dragged her back into the room.

"You shouldn't have come here," he said, his voice cold and emotionless.

Sarah tried to fight back, but the man was too strong. He pushed her onto the bed and began to tie her up. She struggled and screamed, but no one heard her.

Hours passed, and Sarah was still tied up. She had lost all hope of escaping when suddenly, the door burst open. It was the police. They had been searching for the woman who had gone missing in the area.

The man tried to run, but he was caught and arrested. Sarah was rescued, but the memory of that night would haunt her forever.

From that day on, Sarah always made sure to double-check her directions before driving. She knew that taking the wrong turn could lead to disaster, and she didn't want to make that mistake again. The mansion was torn down, and the area was turned into a park, but the memory of what had happened there remained.

Sarah never forgot the horror she had experienced, and she knew that the wrong turn could lead to a nightmare that could last a lifetime.
