 ’’Oops!’’ I said, my ball just slid down the stairs which opened to the basement. ’’Your mistake, go get it’’,said  Sophie. It was my 17th birthday and my friends were here. Mom wasn’t home so, I decided to check it out. The basement is locked since…..,since.., actually ,it is locked since the last twelve years when my Mom screamed out, I really don’t know but, she really goes mad at us when we ask. She fought with Dad almost every day to shift elsewhere, but, Dad, he always said no one would buy it and he, too didn’t want to sell it, as he bought it on a very low price. Whatever it was, I can tell it wasn’t good -not at all good because I see strange dreams here like yesterday, I saw saw a women behind the curtain - obviously a dream, but, it…..,it felt real. Too real to be a dream. ’’what are you waiting for?’’, Sophie asked. ’’ I am not going alone ’’, I said. ’’what do you expect, a which would come in out’a nowhere and eat you. hahahaha. How brave are you. I’m sure you’d scream out like you’r coward mother’’, she said in a rude and challenging voice. ’’don’t talk about my Mother that way’’, I shouted back. And then our fight carried on , blah blah blah blah, finally she ended up challenging me to go in there with her for three minutes to prove that i wasn’t a coward. OBVIOUSLY, I SAID YES because i wasn’t a coward.

 

 

We both stepped slowly downstairs, My heartbeat, racing. Now, my Mother’s words come into my mind never ever step into the basement, I screamed because of a reason, a reason you can't understand without seeing him ,sorry, i meant seeing it. Finally we reached the door of the basement. It seems a bad idea but I had to do this. I saw the lock of the door, the key was inside it. No way, my Mother never opens it up, she wears the key in her neck all the time. As it is locked from the outside it is reasonable to think the it is meant to keep someone inside or maybe, to keep something  inside. ’’okay, go in’’,Sophie said opening the door. I took out the heavy metal torch. There was no sign of light, just my torch. We went a bit farther when,

 

THE DOOR CLOSED WITH A THUD

 

 

Sophie started beating the door hard’’It’s useless ’’,I said. ’’W’ve got to find another way out’’,I spitted the words out with all my energy, pulling her back. I heard footsteps.’’calm down ,calm down, you have to listen, we have to run’’, I said, exhausted. ’’listen to m-’’ Sophie started to say but I cut her voice ’’Shhhh!, I hear footsteps’’,I said, dragging her towards the closet. We both hid in the closet. I was breathing hard enough that anyone in the room would hear it so, Sophie put her hand on my face. She took out her mobile, she found my mother’s contact and started messaging her. And to our luck she was already online.’help! v r n that basement rm’ she texted,

 

remain online’  mom replied. 

 

 

 

Sophie45: help

 

Elsa(mom):damn it !

 

Elsa: who asked u 2 go there ?

 

  Sophie45: just help us first

 

  Sophie45: i’ve got apologies 2 make

 

SOPHIE45 IS OFFLINE

 

I swallowed hard. I took deep breaths. The foot steps were coming closer , they weren't sounding like normal foot steps anymore. They sounded like they were AIR the only reason i feel them like footsteps is that the voice seems like someone’s pacing ,no, I am wrong ,something’s pacing. Its not a human it’s not a animal, I can feel it. ’Anna come out, I know you’re here somewhere,I am just here to take revenge from your mother by killing you as she killed MY daughter’’, something mysterious, a female voice, it echoed all over the room. Then, someone started hitting the door from the other side, I knew this was mom. the something screamed and just the voice of hitting the door was remaining. I took a sigh of relief. suddenly,The closet door opened ……….that’s the last thing I saw.

 

When I opened my eyes I was in my bedroom. I was sleeping or maybe fainted on my bed. ’’Mom, hey, are you here?’’,I yelled. I tried to move a little when I realized that, the something had scratched my back and blood was trickling. A while later mum opened the door and sat on the chair by my bed.’’Where is Sophie?’’I asked gently. ’’Arabella took her ’’,she replied.’’Who

 

are you?’’I asked.’are you a killer?’’,I asked, my throat burned inside of saying these words

 

?LISTEN CAREFULLY, THREE WORLDS EXIST. OUR WORLD, A LIGHT WORLD AND A DARK WORLD. NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN TO THE DARK WORLD……EXEPT,……..EXEPT ME, WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I HAD THE ABILITY, THE POWER TO VISIT THE DARK WORLD IN MY DREAMS. I WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO WAKE UP UNTIL I REACHED THE PLACE I STARTED, IF I DIDN’T REACH THRE BY SUNRISE IN OUR WORLD I WOULD HAVE BEEN 

TRAPPED. NO ONE BELIEVED ME UNTIL..UNTIL ONE DAY, I TOLD MY MOTHER TO HOLD MY HAND WHILE I SLEEP AND I WAS RIGHT. WE ENTERED THE DARK WORLD AND THIS TIME IT WAS HARD TO GET OUT ALIVE BECAUSE DAY BY DAY THE DARK POWERS WERE GETTING STRONGER, A GIRL ATTACKED MY MOTHER,I FREED HER,IN THE DARK WORLD BEING FREE IS ALMOST CONSIDERED AS TO DIE. MY MOTHER DECIDED TO STOP IT, I RESISTED TO DO SO, SO SHE CALLED A LADY, I DON’T KNOW WHETHER SHE HAD THE SAME ABILITIES BUT SHE TOLD ME THAT SOMETHING HAS FOLLOWED ME FROM THE DARK WORLD. FROM THEN ON I NEVER EVER ENTERED THAT WORLD BUT THAT THING HAD FOLLOWED ME HERE, I KILLED HER DAUGHTER AS SHE ATTACKED MY MOTHER IN THE DREAM. IF YOU DIE IN THE DREAM YOU DIE IN THE REAL WORLD, GET IT?, THE THING IS A SPRIT, A BAD SPRIT, HER NAME IS ’ARABELLA’ AND SHE HAS TAKEN SOPHIE. SHE WANTS ME TO ENTER THE ,THE DARK WORLD. SO, SHE KILLS ME IF I TRY TO SAVE SOPHIE ?mom said, there was an edge to her voice. ’’You should’ve told me’’, I said ,my mind wasn't accepting what mom just said. Was the my mistake? I don’t know. It may be my mistake. I held my head, my head was spinning around. I couldn’t see clear, no more. I had to save her somehow. 

 

My dad didn’t believe it and so did my brother, I was occupied by frustration and disappointment because no one except  my mother believed me. ’’Good night, dear’’,my mother said politely, opening the door. She turned off the light, closed the door and went away. I heard her footsteps until they couldn’t be heard anymore. I sighed, and tried to sleep. I was sure I could’t. so, I kept watching the celling. I spent almost 2 hours watching it. I rolled my eyes towards the clock, It was 12 by now. I sighed. I got off  my bed. I picked up the book of spiritual legends. My Mom’s book. ’’Lets see’’,I said to myself. I picked the book up. I sat on my bed and turned on the light

 

I opened the book. It was as heavy as metal.I opened the book, the first page said;
