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.....


22. Nurse

Dad didn't even look up, his face hard as stone; concentrating on something that, I guessed, he wanted to forget. There was something that he wanted to keep a secret, to keep from me : he wanted to try and protect me. With this simple conclusion that my dad was keeping something from me, I looked back to the wrinkly walls that stood rigid all around me.

Slightly concerned, I laid back into the goose feathered, plumped up pillows. I spent a few minutes thinking on a few things that raced around like rabbits in my mind. After a couple of minutes a middle aged woman entered my room. She looked straight at my dad before speaking in a hushed and concerned voice.

"Is this the wrong time?"

Dad suddenly looked up from his sudden trance, it seemed as if he had just been shaken awake and he was in shock.

"Yes,do what you need to do and go." He snapped.

She looked slightly upset , her eyes brimming with tears. While this happened, dad looked straight back to the large window that filled the room with bright spring sunlight. The woman turned to me, her hands shaking as a tear escaped her left eye; nearly dropping the syringe.
