Something had just walked past, something just spoke to me. Maybe just maybe it was a...

I closed my eyes thinking about a being back home in bed and not in this haunted house…

As I opened them slowly, it felt different! Almost like I was back where I started, stood at the vast, withered gates of the possessed house.
