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.....


35. Plan.

Looking around the wide eyed first years and close friends, I paused. I didn't know how many would join me; risking our lives over something stupid and obviously quite spontaneous.

"At 8:30, that's in about an hour and a half, is our bed time. Mrs.Jackson does not go to her room till about 9 pm and her light goes out around 9:30. That means we need to leave at 10 pm so the likelihood of becoming caught is reduced quite significantly. Of course, we need to get some boys on our side, as well as sixth formers to cover our tracks. Remember the sixth formers are first to notice if the majority of Malone house has gone walk a bouts." My paragraph short and simple, but I don't think they had got the grasp of what I was pointing out to them. 

"How do you know this information? You have done some investigating! But what will we do? Where shall we go? Who are we looking for? And isn't this dangerous? What if we die? I don't want to die ..."  Janice blurted out, fast and furious. 

"Ah, the vital piece of information that I have missed. The person- no devil- we are looking for is a tall, thin, pale creature with blood red eyes. His veins bubbling among his thin willowy skin. That's who we are looking for. My friends and dearest companions- who wants to join on this dangerous and possibly death incurring mission?" 

Several first years looked expectantly at each other; nodding before raising their shaking hands. I admired their bravery to join in such a mission, it wasn't simple. Slowly yet surely many of my dearest friends raised their hands. After a few minutes of weighing up the options of missing out on a adventure and possibly dying or getting into serious trouble made the last few to raise their hand. I smiled smugly.
