The Cabin in the Woods - Story

By Sowmya KavyaPublished 6 months ago 3 min read

Amanda and her companions arrived at the isolated cabin in the woods as soon as the sun started to set. In an effort to have a relaxing weekend away from the bustle of the city, they had leased the cabin. But Amanda couldn't get rid of the uneasy sensation she had about the cabin.

They were telling stories and laughing that evening while gathered around the fireplace when they heard an odd noise emanating from outside. Although Amanda dismissed it as simply the wind, her friends weren't so positive. They made the decision to look into it but discovered only silence and blackness.

Amanda went for a stroll through the woods the following morning. She discovered a strange-looking item that was concealed by bushes. It was a human cranium, she realised as she drew nearer. A chill went down Amanda's spine as she realised their relaxing weekend had transformed into a nightmare.

The party made the decision to go hiking later that day. Still troubled by the skull's finding, Amanda lagged behind. She noticed a man looking at her from a distance as she was moving. Though she couldn't see his face, she was aware that he was looking at her. Her friends had already vanished around the corner when she attempted to catch up with them.

Strange events started to occur as the day gave way to darkness. In addition to hearing footsteps on the roof, they could hear the windows rattling in the breeze. Amanda had the impression that something was keeping an eye on them and was aware that something lurked in the shadows.

They heard a loud pounding on the front door that evening as they were getting ready for bed. While looking through the peephole, Amanda's pulse was racing, but she was unable to see anything. The door suddenly flew open, and a hooded figure stormed inside.

Screaming and running in all directions, the gathering. In the hopes that the assailant wouldn't find her, Amanda hid under the bed. Her heart felt like it was going to break when she heard footfall coming. She screamed with fright when she suddenly felt a hand on her thigh.

She noticed her friend David looking down at her with concern when she glanced up. He had come to see how she was doing and to ensure her safety. Being relieved that she wasn't the only one experiencing this nightmare, Amanda hugged him closely.

In an effort to survive the night, the party fortified the cabin. However, the hooded man persisted in attempting to break in by pounding on the windows and doors. They made the decision to leave because they realised they couldn't stay there indefinitely.

They heard the masked figure approaching as they dashed through the trees. After tripping and falling, Amanda realised she wouldn't be able to recover in time. Her eyelids were closed as she prepared for the worst.

But then she heard the distant sound of alarms. The attacker was apprehended by the cops after they arrived. They had made it through the night, Amanda realised with a wave of relief.

Amanda turned to look back at the cabin in the woods as they were riding in the back of the police vehicle. She was aware that the terror and anxiety she had felt there would never leave her. Despite the fact that she had lived, she was aware that the memories would follow her for the remainder of her days.
