The Haunted House
The house at the end of our lane is old and covered with creepers. Rumour has it that the lady who owned the house was killed by a burglar and her spirit still roams about in the house.
One day my elder brother and his friends decided to check out if the rumour was true. Armed with torchlight, some blankets, food and a portable DVD player they entered the house to find that it was covered with cobwebs everywhere. They had dinner and decided to watch a DVD. They were watching the movie ‘The Ghost Returns’ when suddenly they heard a loud sound as if someone had broken a huge vase. They thought that it must have been a sound from the movie. A few minutes later the flashlight they were carrying began to flicker and the DVD player went off. They began to feel a little scared. They quickly got under the blankets. A loud scream pierced the night air. They heard loud footsteps coming downstairs. They were so scared, they got up and ran and didn’t stop running until they reached home.
I still tease my brother about it and ask him jokingly it the house was haunted and it serves to embarrass him every time.
