Darkness had risen and the clouds had formed a murky fog that spread like a wildfire. Foggy and isolated I wondered through the eerie grounds of the castle. All was quiet and calm until the trees began to sway , the shadows rose from the graves and the gates swung back and forwards making a screeching sound.
Running with the fear of death, I ran towards the rickety castle and banged on the door with fear. Slowly the door began to open, and I ran inside before the weather could pull me into the underworld. After I came into the castle I noticed that it was deserted , like the mary celeste.
Suddenly out of nowhere the clock struck midnight and noises from the underworld began to coincide with the living. Shivering with terror and death I slowly walked along the creaking floorboards. Each step I climbed I felt the walls quiver with laughter and terror. As I reached the penultimate step the ground began to shake with screams of past investigators who searched the castle for answers. Running from the penultimate step I tripped and fell into a passage.
When I awoke I was bewildered with shock because right in front of me was a rotting corpse. shrieking with terror I reached for the door handle and ran out of the room as fast as I could.
What was going on here? Would I escape the impending doom or would I die here like my predecessors before me , who tried to solve the mystery of the castle that no one has owned but people die in unexplained circumstances.
