The Abandoned Asylum

A Journey through the abandoned building.

By Mian .Published 2 months ago 3 min read

The abandoned asylum loomed over the small town like a ghostly apparition. Its decaying walls and broken windows whispered tales of the unspeakable horrors that had occurred within its walls. For years, the townspeople had avoided the building, believing it to be cursed. But one day, a group of teenagers decided to explore the abandoned asylum, unaware of the terrors that awaited them.

The group consisted of five friends: Jenny, Mike, Sarah, Jason, and David. They had heard rumors of the asylum's haunting and wanted to see it for themselves. They arrived at the abandoned building just as the sun was setting, casting an eerie glow over the dilapidated structure.

Jenny was the first to step inside, her flashlight illuminating the dark hallway. The others followed closely behind, their hearts pounding with excitement and fear. As they explored the building, they discovered signs of its gruesome past: rusty medical instruments, broken furniture, and bloodstains on the walls.

As they made their way deeper into the asylum, the group began to feel a sense of unease. Strange noises echoed through the halls, and the temperature dropped suddenly. David suggested they leave, but the others were too intrigued to turn back now.

They soon regretted their decision. The asylum seemed to come alive around them, as if the ghosts of its former patients were still trapped within its walls. Sarah heard whispers in her ear, and Jason felt a cold hand on his shoulder. Mike's flashlight flickered, casting shadows that seemed to move on their own.

Then, they stumbled upon a room that made their blood run cold. It was a medical ward, filled with rusted beds and broken equipment. But what was truly terrifying was the figure that lay on one of the beds. It was a woman, or what was left of her. Her skin was stretched tight over her bones, and her eyes were sunken and lifeless. Her mouth hung open in a silent scream, frozen in time.

The group ran from the room, their screams echoing through the asylum. But they quickly realized that they were lost. The halls twisted and turned, leading them in circles. And every time they turned a corner, they were faced with more horrors. The ghostly figure of a doctor, his lab coat stained with blood. The shadowy silhouette of a patient, his arms outstretched as if to grab them.

Finally, they found themselves in the basement. It was pitch black, and the only sound was the beating of their own hearts. But then they heard something else. It was a scratching, a scraping sound, coming from the darkness ahead. They cautiously approached, their flashlights flickering nervously.

And then, they saw it. A creature, or something that used to be a creature. It was emaciated, with skin stretched tightly over its bones. Its eyes glowed in the darkness, and its fingers were long and sharp. It lunged at them, and the group scattered in terror.

In the chaos that followed, they became separated. Jenny found herself alone in a room, her back against the wall as the creature approached. She closed her eyes, waiting for the end. But then, she heard a sound that made her heart leap with hope. It was the sound of sirens.

The police had been called, and they arrived just in time to save the group. They burst into the asylum, guns drawn, and found the teenagers huddled together in a corner, their faces white with fear. The creature was nowhere to be seen.

The abandoned asylum was sealed off, deemed too dangerous for anyone to enter. But the memories of the horrors that had occurred within its walls lingered on. The town never forgot the five teenagers who visited it.
