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.....


31. Prep


As soon as I had started the prayer, I had finished; throwing the rest of the lavender in a nearby empty casket,that lay beside my bed.  Grabbing a notepad, I made my way out of my room towards the living room, the noises from the outside world cascading into silence as we plummeted into the dark of the night. The bright light of the sun that warmed the base of my neck  minutes before became icy and cold.

Consistency flowed through the house; constant mumbling from my parents, the constant beat that my feet made as they hit the ground and lastly the constant chirping noise that the birds made, fading quickly into the distance. The sounds that I heard became quieter and quieter before I realised that I was standing at the base of the stairs, staring drearily into the darkness. The mumbling that I heard hushed suddenly before the door opened behind me; slamming loudly, bringing me out of my blurred and confused daydream. Turning around, I saw the faces of my parents; confused and severe.

"Are you ready?" A questioning tone was obvious in my fathers bright, happy voice.

Straitening out my outfit, I smiled.

"I guess everything is in the car?" My voice croaking slightly.

My father nodded, leading the way to the car, with me quickly hopping behind as I tried to tie up the laces of my black, scruffy school shoes.
