Where There Is Darkness

The ancient home was perched on a hill with a view of the city below. People claimed to have visited it, even though it had been unoccupied for some time.

A bunch of adolescents made the decision to investigate the residence one day. Even though they had heard the tales, they didn't think they were true. They agreed that it would be fun to stay the night in the house and see what would happen.

They arrived late at night at the residence. The wind rustling through the trees was the only sound audible in the silent, dark surroundings. The adolescents left the house and began to explore.

The mansion had several apartments and was big and sprawling. The teenagers explored each area alone, creating eerie shadows on the walls with their torches.

They prepareda dining area, a chamber, a library, and even a hidden hallway. However, they didn't come across anything that seemed haunted.

Just as they were about to give up and head out, they heard something. It sounded as though someone was sobbing.

They proceeded down the hall to a bedroom by following the sound. Even though the door was locked, they could still hear people screaming outside.

The teens hesitated. They were unsure about whether to pass.

One of them, a girl named Sarah, eventually unlocked the door.

It took a while for their eyes to adjust because the room was dim. When they did, they discovered a person seated on the bed.

She was a young woman, roughly their age. She had on

She had long, black hair and was wearing a white robe.

The girl started to cry. She didn't raise her head when the adolescents passed by.

"What is wrong?" Sarah enquired.

The girl remained silent. She didn't stop crying.

Sarah took a seat across from the girl and wrapped her arm over her.

It's alright," she said."I am then now."

The girl turned to face Sarah. Her eyes were blown and crimson.

"I feel uneasy," she uttered.

"Remain calm," Sarah urged."I will cover you."

The girl gave a feeble smile.

"Thank you," she said.

Sarah spoke with and comforted the girl while she was there.In the end, the girl passed out.

Sarah returned to the others after leaving the room.

"What happened?" they enquired.

I set up a female," Sarah murmured."She was spooked, so I stayed with her."

"Is she okay?"

"I suppose so," Sarah said."She's asleep now."

The adolescents made the decision to spend the remainder of the evening in the house. They didn't want to part from the girl by herself.

By morning, the girl was vanished. The teenagers looked all over the home, but they were unable to locate her.

They had not seen her since.

The Loft

The teens were shocked by what they had to go through. They were unsure on how to interpret the girl.Was she a genuine person? Was she a ghost, or what?

They made the decision to investigate the house. They visited the library and took out a few original history books.

They discovered that a large family had built the mansion in the 1800s. The family had occupied the home on several occasions, but they had all suddenly passed away in the early 1900s.

The house had been vacant for a long time.

The teenagers discovered that it was a pain to visit the residence. There were reports of people hearing unusual noises coming from outside and seeing ghosts in the windows.

The teens were beginning to think that the female they'd seen was a ghost.

They made the decision to return to the home and attempt to learn more.

They arrived late at night at the residence. It was actually creepier than it had been on the first occasion.

The adolescents left the house and began to explore.

They decorated a dining room, a chamber, a library, and even a hidden passageway. However, they didn't come across anything that seemed haunted.

Just as they were about to give up and head out, they heard something. It sounded as though someone was sobbing.

They proceeded down the hall to a bedroom by following the sound. Even though the door was locked, they could still hear people screaming outside.

The teens hesitated. They were unsure about whether to pass.

One of them, a boy by the name of John, eventually unlocked the door.

It was dark in the room.

and their eyes needed some time to adjust. When they did, they discovered a person seated on the bed.

The female they had seen the previous evening was the identical one.

She was sobbing. She didn't raise her head when the adolescents passed by.
