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.....


36. Three boys

"DINNER" Mrs.Jackson's voice literally shook our boarding house; her voice had some kind of authority that other teachers didn't have. 

At this point, everyone stopped there various chats about boys, clothes and the looming sports day. Most of the girls filed out of our boarding house while others quickly finished off their packing for tonight before joining the main group of gossiping girls. I was aware that some of the girls left soon after my explanation about tonight; perhaps to spread the word across the year or to smooth the sand with the very bossy sixth formers. 

I thought about tonight and our plan that will (hopefully) work in finding and kidnapping this white creature. I also weighed up the chances about becoming caught by a respected head of staff, or worse: the head girl and boy. As I came to the magnificent entrance of the main building  I saw three figures of whom I recognised with great excitement as they had respect with the others within our year group. One I recognised as Adam Doughty and the other two I wasn't sure of their names, although it was something along the lines as Henry or Dexter. I hurried towards the small group. When I arrived they continued to talk; completely unaware that I was standing next to them. The conversation seemed quite sinister,a conversation which I was not meant to interrupt. Hoping to end their sinister chat, I coughed rather loudly to grab there attention.

" You weren't supposed to hear that Alice!" Snarled Adam.

"I'm so scared."   I replied. "Follow me to dinner, I've got something to tell you and I believe you three could help me into talking to the sixth formers." 

I led the way to the dining room, explaining what has happened and why I needed their help.
