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.....

4. quiet

For the second time in one day, my eyes fluttered open. The bright, yellow sunlight pored into my room ; some raindrops were spread evenly over the window panes, making little rainbows. My throat was dry, my stomach rumbling like lightening. I looked at the massive clock that had stood there, many a year, at the foot of my bed. Just then the hand struck twelve, midday.

I looked over to Alexis's bed, no one was under the cover. Maybe her mother came to pick her up while I was asleep? Or maybe she woke up and was at our boarding school.

I stood up, looking around and streched my arms; taking in the view. I yawned with happiness. At the end of the garden the little swing bed was swinging. Was it mum? No it couldon't be.... Another being was sat there. Who was it.
