Everybody was waiting for their parents to sleep. As and when Carol got to know that her parents were sound asleep and the house was completely silent, she went down tip toed.
They all met up at the Church Street.
“Hey! Do you still want to go in that creepy house??” asked Drake
“Oh yes for sure ! Don’t be a coward “answered Carol
“We are detectives and they don’t behave like this” added Mellissa
“Why we are waiting? Lets go!” said Carol with a voice of a capable leader
They all went inside the house from the backdoor which was to surprisingly open.
“Mr. Graven is so careless” whispered Margaret
“hmmmm” answered the rest
They went inside tip toed like a thief. It was complete darkness inside. Only Mellissa and Drake had the torch so they switched it on.
They made groups and went to two different rooms.
Mellissa and Margaret went to the living room and Carol and Drake to the other room.
Though before, Carol sounded quiet brave but she was a little scared of darkness. Drake could understand that very well and clutched at her arm tightly!
“Well don’t be scared.” Said Drake in a soft voice
“who’s Scared???”said Carol
“ya ,Ya nobody can understand you better than me?!” Said Drake
Just then something happened ,which I would say both awkward and sweet.
So ,as Carol was moving step by step she got slipped by something and then landed on Drake .
They were not an inch far than each other.
Eyes wide feeling a little awkward Carol managed to pull herself from Drake.
I do think that for Drake that would be the happiest moment.
On the other hand , Mellissa and Margaret were looking at different thinks like a real detective.
Suddenly ,Mellissa stepped on something unusual and was so scared that she screamed with all her energy.
Both the girls rushed into the other room. Drake and Carol had already sensed something terrible had happened.
“What happened?? Mellissa??” asked Carol
Soon they reached Carol and explained themselves.
“So you want to say that you stepped on something unusual” Said Drake
“Yes !” said Mellissa shivering with fear
Then suddenly everybody got freezed by a voice coming from the next room...
“PLEASE LEAVE ME!!”a call from the living room.
“What the hell is going on??Asked Carol
“Shall I go and check?” asked Drake
“ NO!!Are mad or what??” said Mellissa still shivering
“Oh now who is becoming a coward??”said Drake
“Oh ,How can you all quarrel at this moment??” said Carol
“BOOM !, “a sound of a gunshot came from the other room
“Oh my god ! who’s idea it was to come here??!” asked Margaret
“Yess ,It is so silly to come here “Added Mellissa
“But....now why you all are blaming me?”asked Carol
“Stop this! I had warned you before but you all were not at all bothered” said Drake
Another Boom! and they all grabbed each others hand.
“Can’t we just run away??”suggested Drake
“huh???” asked Mellissa
“NO !! You thought that You would escape so easily??
But No You will never!” came a grave voice from the other room
“hey! He can hear you” whispered Carol
“So at last we are trapped here?!,Wow” said Mellissa
“But I cant see anyone.” Said Drake
“Oh ho ! cant You understand ?? its not a human ,its probably a GHOST!!” said Carol
“Carol, It cant...”Drake tried to say something but was paused by another sound
A sound of shoes, coming nearer .
“I think he is coming to kill us!” exclaimed Mellissa
“Oh God ! Please keep my video games safe from cousin after I die” said Mellissa
“Oh God ! Please keep my story books safe” added Carol
“Oh God ! please keep my family safe forever” said Margaret
“Please God! I wish nothing can harm Carol...Keep her safe!” Said Drake with eyes closed
“What? Can’t you just think about yourself??” said Mellissa
“Ummm.. ..”Murmured Drake ,His face red and looking down
“I....I just mean that ...ya ! I don’t have any wishes that’s why I wished for her. Ummm ...that’s it “said Drake
“How Weird!”said Carol
The footsteps were still approaching and then a loud BANG!
And they all fainted.
The next day their parents with their worried faces were finding them here and there
“Margo!!” shouted Margaret’s mom
“Mellissa dear , Where are you??” asked Mellissa’s mom
“Carol ! I wont scold you ...please come here!”added Carols mom
Drake’s father was also finding him.
“Hey ! Drake where have You gone?”
Their search ended when Mr. Graven opened his house .
They all woke them up and asked what had happened .
After hearing their story, they all burst into laughter.
“Dear there are no ghosts!” said Mr. Graven
“And yes! I had not shifted, I had just gone to visit my cousin” continued Mr. Graven
“But those noises of footsteps??! What about that?” added Drake
“Oh ya ,when I entered the house I noticed that the TV was on .Probably the sound was coming from there.” Said Mr. Graven
“So Now I understood, that the unusual thing I stepped on was a remote and nothing else” said Mellissa
“Oh how fearful night it was...”added Carol
“Its ok ,But now It’s time for breakfast !Lets go!”Said Carols mom inviting all for breakfast at their house
They rushed to Carols House...
SO, here my story ends.
I would like to conclude saying that sometimes, people are not so brave as they look from outside.
And sometimes people are not so emotionless as they look from outside.
In case of Carol, though her detective case had become a fearful night but on the other hand
that night, for Drake had became the most the most wonderful night ever !
Maybe it was a return gift from Carol.
So ....Happy Ending!
