Have you ever heard the story about the abandoned house down the block? “No Chad, I haven’t”, replied Isaac. You mean they never told you? Well, they were normal. There was a mother named Suzanne. Her two kids were named Ashley, and Jacob. they were 6 year old twins. The father’s name was Gary. He died prior in a car accident with the two kids in the backseat. He was picking them up from school. On their way home the kids started fighting. As gary tried to get them to stop, he looked away from the road. He didn’t notice the road work ahead and ran into a crane. It crushed the front end of the car, killing him instantly. The kids were safe in the back recieving only minor injuries. A while after, the mom ghought she regained control of her emotions. She decided to ask the kids what happened. They told her that they were arguing and daddy turned around to stop them and that was the last thing they remembered before the accident. Realizing it was their fault, she went into a fit. After a couple of hours alone the mom decided it was time for their bath. She ran the water as usual but once the kids were in the tub she made a quick decision. She knew it would never be the same again. So while she was washing their hair she pushed their heads under the water holding them there, crying as she did so, blaming them for Gary’s death. She figured it was for the best. Later, she passed out plotting how to kill herself, but in the night she screamed so loud in her sleep, the nieghbors… YOUR parents… called the cops. They took her in and placed her in a psyche ward. They got the detials from the police report and told my parents. They been scaring me with the kid’s ghosts since i was 9. It was over 15 years ago.
What do you say we go out tonight? Where? We can go tothat house. My parents say you can still hear the woman’s screams, even though she died a couple months ago in treatment. I’m not sure. C’mon, you know you want to. Fine, I will go, but we aren’t staying long. That’s fine by me Isaac old chap. Later that night the two boys snuck out around 2 am. The boys arrived at the house and found a broken window. They climbed in quickly. He saw something in the next room, but thought it was just his imagination. The boys started through the dining room as the sound of running water reached their ears. “Do you hear that,” asked Chad. “Yeah, let’s check it out,” replied Isaac. As they walked toward the sound they noticed that water was trickling down the stairs slowly. “I thought the house was abandoned?” “It is. The water shouldn’t be running at all.” They walked slowly and quietly up the stairs woundering why the water was on. Out of nowhere a scream let out, piercing their ears. “it sounds like a woman crying out, I think we should leave.” Chad asked Isaac. “What if she is hurt,” argued Isaac. They got to the bathroom door and looked in. They saw that the room was flooded with night, as well as water from the bathtub. They seen a dark figure stumped over the bathtub sobbing deeply. The figure stopped and as it did, there was movement in the bathtub as two small figures stood. As the clouds moved and shown the bright moon, they saw two kids and a beaten, worn out woman staring at the two kids. At the moment the kids started walking towards the boys. “Halp us,” they asked. The boys started to back out the door and down the stairs when the woman stood and started screaming, “You will not get away!”
They turned and ran fast as they could when the front door opened and a tall dark firgure entered the room slamming the door. “You shouldn’t be here,” the figure said. “Who are you?” the two boys asked. “The name is Gary,” he told them. As he said that the woman started screaming even harder. She grabbed both of the boys by the throat digging her long thick nails into their necks. She slammed them into the ground, just as Gary grabbed her, telling her that she shouldn’t be there, just as he had told them. The woman sat staring into his eyes. “Hi Suzy,” Gary said. The woman’s worn out features softened as she realized this was her husband. She sat staring as he walked across the room to the children kissing them each on the head. As he did they started going up the stairs disappearing as they went. The children had been struck in limbo since their death. Their father’s soul had remained since his wife couldn’t accept his death. So when she came back to torment her children’s spirits’, he sacrificed his spirit to set them free into heaven. He held his wife, telling her everything would be ok, that they would be together forever now. Just as he finished speaking they sank into the floor together as the house caught fire. “Hurry,” Isaac yelled at Chad. They both got up and ran out the door and back home. They watched as the house burned down and the fire department arriving. They both had a hard time sleeping that night, but they finally fell asleep. He awoke to his bed moving. He thought is was Chad so he opened his eyes. He saw a large, dark figure above him with a kind of luminescence to its eyes. “I told you wouldn’t get away.”
