I entered the old abandoned building. The atmosphere was dead silent. You couldn't even hear the wind blowing against the darkened windows. The darkened hallway lead to a flight of stairs leading up. I approached the steps. Lightning flashed outside following the sound of thunder and heavy rain. As I walked up the stairs my heart was falling to the floor,the fear felt like walking through a cemetery at night or being in court getting your sentence  to life by a judge. I managed to make it to the top of the house. I took out my lighter and lit it to get some light in the house. At the exact moment darkness soon turned into light and a face appeared in front  of me screaming as loud as it could. I dropped my lighter and ran as fast as I could to the exit of that house. My friends were waiting for me outside the house and once they saw me they started busting up laughing at me. I gave them each a look. "What happened?" Peter asked me. "I made it to the top floor when a face appeared it freaked me out." I told them. "Yeah right" Jeremy said. He walked over to the house. Peter went in the building with him. I waited outside no way would I step foot in there again. A few minutes went buy and I heard screams of terror following a loud thud. Jeremy busted through the door. I asked what happened? "I...I saw something it...it killed Peter...threw him down the steps." "What?" I said. I opened the door. Peters body was on the ground he was dead. I couldn't help but look up. A tall dark shadow was above the steps staring down at me. At first I thought he was human but no he had claws. And then I noticed as he was coming down the steps he wasn't walking he was levitating! I slammed the door and ran as fast as I could in the opposite direction. Me and Jeremy never went to that building again. We reported to the police about Jeremy. They said that house had several murders in it and They got reports of it being haunted. We didn't know what to believe but after our good friend died we felt Horrible and vowed to stay away from that house forever. The police boarded the home up for good. Every so often neighbors will get reports of a flashing blood red light shining from inside the house in the top bedroom where the murders took place. Some Say it is a portal to hell. We will never know however and I'm fine with not knowing.
