Halloween Half-Pagers: This Haunted House

Halloween Half-Pagers This Haunted House

When Dave entered the Franklin house he knew right away that something was wrong. A chill ran down his spine, and he lost his breath. He suddenly felt he shouldn’t have gone in, but who could resist exploring a real haunted house. He had first read about it in the papers years ago, how nobody would live in the place because of strange occurrences. That people would flee from the place screaming. When the city tried to tear down the house, after a day of trying, the workers would refuse to go back to work. Now he was inside the place and after the initial chill, all he saw was disappointment. The Franklin house was just an old trashed and abandoned home, full of empty rooms covered in dirt and graffiti. No archaic furniture or ancient tomes, no haunting pictures, or sinister shadows, nothing. What was frightening about the place besides the rumors? Then Dave felt it, a retching feeling as if something was pulling at his soul. He felt like he was suddenly dying, the place wanted his spirit. Quickly Dave ran from the place, horrified. The Franklin house wasn’t haunted, no… It was trying to become haunted…
