The Abandoned Asylum

The Price of Curiosity

By Muneeb A.Published about a year ago 2 min read

As a young journalist, Sarah had always been drawn to the macabre. She loved exploring abandoned buildings and uncovering the secrets that lay hidden within. So, when she heard rumors of an abandoned asylum just outside of town, she knew she had to investigate.

Sarah convinced her friends to join her on the adventure, and they set out one Friday night, armed with flashlights and a sense of curiosity. As they approached the asylum, they could see that it was old and decrepit, with broken windows and a crumbling facade.

As they entered the building, Sarah's heart was racing. She could feel the weight of history in the air, the pain and suffering that had taken place within those walls. The asylum was a maze of corridors and rooms, with peeling wallpaper and rusted beds. It was clear that no one had been there for years.

As they explored the asylum, Sarah and her friends heard strange noises coming from the upper floors. It sounded like whispers, like the ghostly echoes of the patients who had once been confined to this place. Despite their fear, they pressed on, determined to uncover the secrets that lay hidden within.

They soon found themselves in a dark and dusty room, filled with old records and files. As they flipped through the pages, they began to realize the horror that had taken place within those walls. The patients had been mistreated, abused, and left to die. It was a grim reminder of the darker side of human nature.

Suddenly, they heard footsteps in the hallway outside the room. Sarah's heart was pounding as she peered through the door, but there was no one there. Her friends tried to reassure her, telling her that it was just the wind, but Sarah couldn't shake the feeling that they were being watched.

As they made their way back through the asylum, they heard the whispers again, growing louder and more persistent. They could hear the sound of footsteps following them, but every time they turned around, there was no one there. It was as if the asylum was alive, and it was hunting them.

Sarah's friends began to panic, urging her to leave, but Sarah was determined to stay. She needed to know the truth, to uncover the secrets that had been buried for so long. It was a fatal mistake.

As they approached the exit, they were met with a figure dressed in old-fashioned hospital scrubs. His face was twisted in anger, and his eyes burned with an otherworldly fire. Sarah and her friends tried to run, but it was too late. They were trapped, surrounded by the ghosts of the past.

In the end, only Sarah survived. She managed to escape the asylum, but she was never the same. She had seen things that she could never forget, things that haunted her for the rest of her life. The price of her curiosity had been too high. The abandoned asylum would remain a warning to anyone foolish enough to seek out the darker side of human nature.
