FIVE FRIENDS 1 NIGHT IN A HAUNTED VILLA.

 

Rick, Tom, Julian, Dick & George were 5 friends. They were fond of travelling to different places. On 1 weekend they decided to go to the country side. They packed all essentials and went to the country side. Till the time they crossed the boundary, it was night. They were able to find a deserted villa.  They decided to stay there for 1 night and continue there journey.  Alas! It was their biggest mistake. They explored the courtyard and the rest of the house. They had a candle light dinner in the hallway next to the beautiful iron statues which were a bit rusted. They didn’t see that the statue was watching them. They thought that it would be a short and peaceful night, or so they thought.

Everyone was sleeping peacefully, suddenly Rick heard a sound. He thought that it was a stray animal. But the noise was continuously increasing. So he thought to check it out right away. He took a candle and headed out alone to investigate.  The hallway was very narrow and very dark.  He saw that there was a door half open at the end of the hallway. But it was closed when he had passed it before.  He silently went and opened the door. Suddenly lightning struck. The curtains flew open and blew frenzy. He did not know what was happening but was scared stiff. He dashed screaming across the hallway to the other rooms.” Wake up! Wake up! There is someone else in this house.”

Every one woke up.  Now as everyone was together, all of them felt braver. They thought that they should get to the bottom of the happenings.  Just then Tom had a brainwave that they should split up. He did not know that those were the last of his idiotic ideas. Dick did not believe in ghosts so he thought it was a burglar and was feeling much braver than the others. So Rick, Julian and George went on one side and Tom and Dick went in other direction.  Rick and the others tiptoed the hallway. They saw a white coloured small thing was gilding towards them. They had a shock of their lives when they saw that it was a small girl holding a doll. All of them ran down a flight of stairs. The ghost of the little girl could not catch up. All three of them went inside a dusty bedroom. The bedroom had a huge mirror. Suddenly they saw an old woman in the mirror.  All three of them ran for their lives. At last they went out of the house. The only thing they could see was thick fog. Through a window of the house the faces of the other two friends could be seen. They too had turned into ghosts and were repeating the same sentence that” you should not have come here”.  Many other ghosts surrounded the three. George was captured by them. Rick and Julian ran towards the car. The doors were jammed. After a lot of effort, they were able to sit in the car and escape.  “Phew! That was close” said Rick. “Are you sure?” replied Julian. His eyes Yellow and a wide smile on his face....
