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.....


18. Panic

I carried on walking to the faded blue light that entered through the open window or in my opinion, our escape. On the floor before me the light that came to me revelled an ugly creature that I hadn't seen or heard before. I gulped. I started to panic but then I realised it was a baby mouse whineing for it's mother. 'That's so cute!' I mumbled to myself then I knelt down, scooping up the little mite before finding the little family on a window ledge to my right. I gently placed the small creature in it's home (a little nest of wood ; rather like a birds nest). Alexis and Lucas were stroking the the little family, frequent squeels of delight came from all of them. We must of been their for at least for half-an hour or so before I got a niggleing feeling of sadness and emergency in my bones ; as if we were told by someone or something that we had to go. I moved up a tad letting both Alexis and Lucas form a crescent shape around the ledge. The feeling got worsend after five or so minutes before I motioned to the others that we really need to get along. We just got to the window ledge which was the next along, or more hurridly.

Footsteps came louder and closer, realising when the shadows met my eyes, there was not just one figure but two and what seemed to be an animal. Theese two shadows and the dog, which seemed , from a distance, rather tame and reluctant. Different tones of anger and betrayal, as well as reluctance came from their voices. My two friends were standing close beside me , shaking, surprisingly enough the family of mice were silent, looking up I realised that they were not their and must be in hiding too. I motioned to them to escape, for them to go first, before I did. I would rather me down hre than both of them down here. The only reason for me to think this was because the two humans were not after them, they were after me.  Lucas coughed, ecoing accross towards the two men.

"Oh no..." Alexis voice trailed off . She was mirroring my exact thoughts.
