A short chapter about a girl whose been forced to step into an abandoned home.


1. The Dare

The moldy, rotting, brown house mounted in front of the girl, with only fear keeping her feet planted to the ground. The clear moaning and creaking noises from the house as it settled into the soft earth. The grass, damp from the evening fog, and a group of older girls behind her taunted her. “You said you’d do anything if it was a dare right?” said one of the girls. She knew she could never back away on a dare, especially a double dog dare. She walked to the front steps with her breath growing quicker and shorter. The bottom step squeeked as she applied some pressure with her foot. She let out a short sigh and was relieved that the ancient structure didn’t gulped her up. She took another step, then another until she finally reached the door. The door was slightly off color from the rest of the house. It loomed over her like a giant, and she felt like Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. She wanted to quickly get it over with the dare, so she grabbed ahold of the brass door knob and quickly turned it. The door was pushed open, she quickly jumped back to avoid any creatures of the dark that could be possibly get her when the door swung opened. A rush of chilling air came out as soon as she opened the door. The musty smell of the house that had been long abandoned filled her nose. It was dim and uninviting, however she mustered up every bit of courage she had and crossed the doorway. The door instantly closed shut and screams for her name could be heard from the other side of the door as she was soon quickly enveloped in darkness.
