The Mysterious Place...

...

A cool shudder down my spine, as I glanced around nervously seeing portraits staring at me from behind heaps of dust. Nothing else mattered and all I could think about was how alone I was, how alone in the dark left in the eerie hallway. Cold as stone just like the strange stone figure standing and looking towards me at the end of the hallway was how I felt. The only sign of life is the light, the light streaming in through a cracked window, causing shadows to form on the dark wall before me. As I walk forward, I can't help but feel that someone is following me, and watching me. Whirling around, I saw nothing but the empty hallway and the faces in the portraits staring at me. “Turn back” they seemed to say through the fear of their eyes, but I swallowed a nervous whimper and a gulp continuing into the dark rooms of the house...


I entered a dark room in the centre of the house. Shadows seemed to be swirling around my feet, sucking me in. In a burst of panic, I fumbled for a light switch. I flipped it up and down frantically waiting for the light, but none came. The room remained immersed in darkness. Fear settled in and deep down I knew that I was not alone in the dark. Something brushed across my back. I turned, but there was nothing there. Nothing I could see, that is. Outside I could hear the wind howling, which almost sounded like laughter to my panicked and confused mind. A low laugh breaked my thoughts, directly in front of me. I screamed, but heard nothing in the overwhelming blackness. I was being drawn in, sucked in; drowning in pure evil, there was no escape...

 

I couldn’t escape I felt so trapped and that was all I could think about then. In my head there was no one there, but in my mind there was. The thing that stood before me was like nothing I had ever seen. I had no idea about what I was going to do. I screamed again, but heard nothing in the overwhelming blackness. I was still being drawn in, sucked in; drowning in pure evil and there was still no escape...

 

The End
