In the remote village of Dedham a old myth about a man hanging himself on a tree in unusual circumstances is popular amongst the village. 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.....

26. Footsteps

As I finished my speech, questioning if that was my father standing outside my large oak door which was shut tight and was locked for once. For a strange reason, I've always sleppt with my bedroom door bolted tight. Maybe it was due to the fact that I was told from a young age about the monsters of the night.

The silence filled the hallway outside of my room. A deep threatening silence, a silence you would associate with a dead being or a murderer trying to escape the depths of the crime scene. A murderer.

I stepped cautiously towards the light of my large window ; decorated with pressed flower petals, sprinkled all over the base and the middle sticky-out thing where all the wood meet so the glass panels would fit into the slots.

As I sauntered towards the window, I could hear a slow creeking sound then a very gentle kick at the base of my door.

"Oh no, please no."

My voice squeaky and dry. Tones of fear and panic riddled its way through my words. In my stomach, something was telling me that this wasnt right and that I should go and investigate.

The bright light from the sun burned the left side of my face, making me feel slightly faint. Slowly, I walked towards the door and the continual creek and kick that lay behind it.
