On Halloween 1902, Alice and her friend Alexis are late to the church, they see a shadow thinking it's just an adult running home to get something. But was it? Strange things happen and it seems as the myth is playing out in front of them. Will this kill them bboth? or not.....


32. Arrival

Upon arrival to the largest yet most uninviting building which I call my school, I heard many squealing and excited voices mingling in the air. Dismissing it as my vivid imagination, I carried on thinking about my past year. I snorted. Realistically, my best friend had been attacked and had been stuck in a dungeon with myself and, yes, my future boyfriend.

By the time I had finished thinking about my wedding to Lucas, I realised my parents were taking my numerous bags out of the car. My vivid imagination wasn't playing up when I heard numerous squealing voices from the bottom of the drive; most of my year had decided to come down from the bedroom chambers, at what, 5PM at night. I might just be popular! 

I stepped out of the car; quickly surrounded by dozens of excited and hyper girls. Somewhere in front of me, someone had been nudged out of the way, making a small gap for that person to get through. My instinct was that it was Alexis, trying to get closer to me. It was, but as she came close, everyone became silent, edging away. Some looked around in confusion, one minute numerous questions and ' happy your back! ' messages turned into silence. 

"Go in girls, leave them be." A firm voice roared throughout the girls courtyard. "And welcome back!"
