I want to tell you all a secret, there’s a door in my house, a portal, a door through which I can go to the spirit world. I didn’t believe in spirits, I didn’t believe that they existed, so I was not so easily scared about ghosts.
Our family consisted of four, my father David, my mother Angel, my younger brother Joel and me, Roxane. We had to move to a new house because of our financial problem. We got a house at a very cheap price, as we wanted a place to stay, so we didn’t think much about the price of that house. The previous owner of that house warned us about a specific door in the house; to not to open the door or a great danger may befall us. There were total 11 rooms in the house, with obviously 11 doors for it. The house was quite old, but it was still in good condition. 2 to 3 years passed calmly. After shifting to that house, everything became normal. We didn’t have any financial problems. We were getting ready to go back to our previous home. I was really happy that I could meet my friends again. But that night while sleeping I had a really bad nightmare. I saw that I was roaming in the house, and the door which was used to be locked was open. When I went inside, I saw my family; but the weird thing was that they all were covered in blood, cuts and wounds. Then I saw myself, not really me but like my replica. But she was in the same condition as my family was. She came to me and said, “You cannot go away from us my twin.” And then she scratched my hand making it bleed. I woke up screaming in fear and saw that my hand was really bleeding. I didn’t say about it to anyone.
I had to know the truth about that room.
The next day when I was alone at home, I searched for the key to that door. I found the key, but it was kept behind the Cross which was strange for me. I tried to unlock the door, but it was jammed. I thought it could have been jammed because of being still for so many years, but when I turned back and after walking a few steps I heard the door unlock, I turned and saw that the door was open wide but the key was still with me. I saw something red glowing in there. When I went inside, I saw my family as they were in my dream last night. And then I heard someone laughing. Her laugh was kind of demonic. When I turned back, I saw myself. Her face seemed to be cut by some sharp object; her whole body had cuts and wounds, giving way for the blood to come out. She said to me “Welcome to our world twin. Now we will stay here together, forever.” I screamed in terror. They started walking towards me; I closed my eyes and started to pray loudly any prayer I knew, after few moments when I opened my eyes, I was in my room. The key to that door was lying on the table on front of me; underneath the key was a letter. I took the key and tried to read the letter, the letters were written opposite. When I saw the letter in the mirror, it was written in blood, “I told you my twin, we will stay together, FOREVER.”
I ran to the owner of the house and asked him what was all the matter in that house, he said, “You are the one who opened the door, and you are the reason why your whole family will die tonight.” And then he lost his consciousness. I have returned to the house, and they are killing us, the way they died. My twin is in front of me, and the only word I can now type is ‘BYE’........
