I WORE A MAXI

AND WENT IN A TAXI,

TO A PLACE FAR AWAY

ON A BRIGHT SUNDAY.

THE NAME OF THE PLACE WAS GRIBBON.

THE TAXI DRIVER WHO WAS FROM LISBON

TOLD ME THAT NOONE CAME ALIVE FROM GRIBBON

BUT I IGNORED IT AND PULLED A PINK RIBBON

AND TIED MY HAIR INTO A PONY TAIL.

HE TOLD ME THAT GHOSTS WOULD SAIL

AROUND GRIBBON AT MID-NIGHT 12 O'CLOCK

BUT I THOUGHT THAT HE PLAYED PRANKS ON ME TO MOCK.

I REACHED MY DESTINATION

AND GAVE THE MONEY IN HESITATION,

THEN I SAW A SMALL MOUSE

GOING INTO A HOUSE.

I FOLLOWED THE MOUSE

AND WENT INSIDE THE HOUSE.

THE HOUSE WAS VERY CREEPY

AND HAD SMALL WINDOWS THAT WERE DUSTY .

THE HOUSE SEEMED TO BE 400 YEARS OLD

AND I REMEMBERED WHAT THE TAXI DRIVER TOLD,

I BEGAN TO SHIVER WITH FRIGHT AND MY FINGERS BECAME COLD

THEN I CHANGED MY MIND AND BECAME BOLD.

THERE WAS A TABLE AND A CHAIR

AND A CREAKING STAIR.

THERE WAS A CANDLE STAND ON THE TABLE

ON IT,THERE WAS A LABEL.

THE LABEL READ"LADY EMILY"

AND THERE WAS A PAINTING OF A WATER-LILY,

ON AN OLD FASHIONED PLATE.

I THOUGHT THAT IT HAD SOMETHING TO RELATE.

THERE WAS ALSO A GRANDFATHER CLOCK

THAT STRUCK 9 O'CLOCK

THEN OUT OF IT CAME A COCK

STANDING ON A ROCK.

THE NIGHT HAD FALLEN SO SOON

AND THERE WAS NO MOON

I WENT UPSTAIRS WITH MY TORCH

AND FOUND A BROKEN WATCH.

THERE WAS A TOILET AND A BEDROOM

I HAD TO SWEEP THE ROOM WITH A BROOM

CAUSE IT WAS COVERED WITH COB-WEBS AND DUST.

AS I WAS SWEEPING ,I FOUND AN OLD PISTOL WITH A LOT OF RUST

THE BEDROOM HAD A LADY'S PAINTING

AND A DRAWING OF A CHILD SLEEPING,

THERE WAS AN OLD CUPBOARD

WHICH HAD A BIG SWORD.

THE BEDROOM ALSO HAD A CHEST OF DRAWERS

IN WHICH THERE WAS A STORY BOOK ABOUT 2 LAWYERS,

AND THERE WERE SOME FILES AND DOCUMENTS IN HEAP

IT HAD A BED IN WHICH TWO PEOPLE CAN SLEEP.

SUDDENLY THERE WAS A CREAKING NOISE

AND I HEARD A SPOOKY VOICE

I ASKED "WHO IS IT?" IN A SHAKY VOICE,

THE VOICE BECAME ANGRY AND MADE A HORRIBLE NOISE.

I ASKED THE VOICE "ARE YOU LADY EMILY?"

THEN SOMETHING APPEARED BEFORE ME,

IT TOOK THE FORM OF A LADY AND SAID "YES ,I AM EMILY";

THE LADY ASKED "HOW DID YOU FIND ME?"

I SAID "I SAW YOUR NAME IN THE LABEL OF THE CANDLE STAND."

AND SHE ASKED WHY I WAS HERE,

I TOLD HER THE REASON AND SHE LOOKED AT MY HAND

SHE SAID "GO AND KEEP THE BROOM THERE."

I KEPT IT IN THE CUPBOARD

AND DIDN'T SAY A WORD.

MY HANDS STARTED TO SHIVER

AND MY KNEES STARTED TO QUIVER.

THE LADY SAID "ALL THESE YEARS I WAS LONELY"

THEN I ASKED HER IN A BEWILDERED VOICE "WHEN WERE YOU BORN?"

SHE SAID "I WAS BORN IN1607 LOVELY"

AND ASKED ME "WHEN WERE YOU BORN?"

I WAS SHOCKED AND SAID "I WAS BORN IN 1993 ,LADY EMILY"

AND I ASKED "WHERE IS YOUR FAMILY?"

SHE SAID "FAMILY! I DON'T HAVE A FAMILY!"

AND TOLD ME THAT SHE WAS A GHOST WHO VISITED THIS HOUSE DAILY

SHE THEN SAID "EVERYONE CALLED ME EMILY"

BUT MY REAL NAME IS LILY,

MY GRANDMA PRESENTED ME A PLATE

THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL PAINTING OF A LILY ON THAT PLATE.

EVERYTIME I SEE

IT REMIND'S ME,

OF MY ORIGINAL NAME;

WHICH MY GRANDMA USED TO CALL ME BY ,TO PLAY A PUZZLE GAME

THEN I ASKED HER IN A TREMBLING VOICE "HOW DID YOU DIE?"

SHE BEGAN TO TELL ME THAT SHE WAS MURDERED BY HER HUSBAND

WITH A PISTOL, WHEN SHE SERVED HIM AN APPLE PIE;

FOR NOT ALLOWING HIM TO TAKE HER CHURCH FUND.

AND SHE SAID "I AVENGED MY MURDER BY KILLING HIM"

I ASKED "HOW DID YOU KILL HIM?"

SHE SAID "I TORTURED HIM IN HIS DREAMS"

AND FINALLY HE COULDNT BARE IT AND JUMPED IN A STREAM.

THE CLOCK STRUCK TWELVE

IT WAS TIME FOR LADY EMILY TO SAY FARE-WELL,

AND GO TO HELL

BUT SUDDENLY I BEGAN TO FEEL UNWELL.

ATLAST SHE SAID "I ALWAYS KILL VISITORS WHO COME TO MY HOUSE"

I IMMEDIATELY UNDERSTOOD BY WHAT SHE MEANT

AND RAN TO THE TOILET, THERE I SAW THE MOUSE

WHICH I HAD FOLLOWED,IT LOOKED AT ME AND WENT-

THROUGH A DOOR WHICH WAS LOCKED.

I WAS FRIGHTENED AND SHOCKED ,

I TRIED MY BEST TO ESCAPE THROUGH THE DOOR

BUT I HEARD THE VOICE OF LADY EMILY ROAR.

PANIC STRUCK MY HEART

AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO START.

THE TAP BEGAN TO POUR BLOOD

LIKE RIVERS AND STREAMS OVERFLOWING WITH FLOOD.

SHE APPEARED BEFORE ME

AND TOLD THAT SHE WOULDN'T LEAVE WITHOUT KILLING ME,

I BEGAN TO SHUDDER LIKE A LEAF IN WINTER,

I SAID "PLEASE LEAVE ME! I AM AN INNOCENT SPINSTER!"

SHE NEVER SEEMED TO CHANGE HER MIND.

AN IDEA QUICKLY FLASHED IN MY MIND

I SAID "LOOK! IT'S YOUR DEAD HUSBAND WITH THE GUN."

SHE ASKED "WHERE ?" AND I STARTED TO RUN

I FINALLY CAME OUT OF THE HOUSE

AND SAW EMILY'S SPOUSE

FEAR CLUTCHED ME, AND I AGAIN RAN, AWAY FROM HIM

I SOMEHOW ESCAPED FROM HIM .

AT A DISTANCE , I SAW A WHITE LIGHT GLIMMER

I CRIED FOR HELP BUT ONLY HEARD A VOICE SHIVER.

WHEN I WENT NEAR, I SAW A MAN WITH A LAMP AND A DAGGER,

I FAINTED AND BECAME UNCONSCIOUS ,WHEN I WENT CLOSER.

WHEN I WOKE UP I RECOGNISED

A DEAD BODY AND REALISED,

THAT I WAS DEAD

WITH A LONG DAGGER MARK ON MY HEAD.

YOU CAN VERY WELL GUESS WHO I AM NOW!

I AM A GHOST WHO DOESN'T KNOW WHY I WAS MURDERED AND HOW,

BUT FRIENDS! YOU CAN ALSO JOIN ME

BY COMING TO VISIT ME!
