My parents are in Australia for 5 months already, they said they will be back in 3 years. I was sad because my Parents will be back in 3 years. During that time I have to live alone, all by myself. I think i am okay living by myself, i have money because i go to school. I also have a extra work after school, selling stuff. I think I will be okay.
One night while I was sleeping I heard a door “SLAM”. I woke up and went slowly down stairs to my living room and someone is tickling me. I turned around shaking and saw no one! I thought it was just my imagination, so I went back to sleep.
While I was walking to school the next day, I found a book about a secret haunted house. It looks very creepy and it has dust all over it. I stopped for a while and think about what happened last night wasn’t my imagination, it was real! But i am still not sure. I look at my watch and it was 7:30. I was late. When I arrived at school everyone was looking at me like i have killed 10 people. I was in trouble because I was late. It was my first time that I came to school late. I tried to explain to my teacher what happened, but she did not believe me. I feel ashamed. While my teacher was explaining our Math problem I did not pay attention on her, but instead I was thinking about what happened last night and the book that I found this morning. Suddenly, The bell rang, It was time to go home. I was happy that school is over so I can read the book that I found this morning. I ran home and throw the bag down at the floor and did not think about homework, but I was more interested in the book. I sat down at my sofa and open the book. Inside the book it said, “ This is the scariest house in town. If you live in this house, well it’s too late! I have already experience that house and I am warning you. This house is haunted! The story of this house is there was this man who lived in this house years ago. He was never happy, he was sad because his wife died. One day he decided to die so he can be with his wife. He hang himself in the closet and died. If one of your family is in or going to another country, they might die during their flight to the other country or when they are coming back to their home country. The only way to get rid of the ghost is to talk with the ghost with a special machine that can talk to them, at exactly 12:00 in the midnight they will start haunting your house.” I didn’t think it was my house until at the bottom of the letter there is a picture of a house. I look clearly at that picture and started to freak out. It was my house and what happened yesterday night was true, it wasn’t my imagination at all. I went out and buy this special machine that a person wrote in the book. While i was walking i was so scared, i couldn’t believe it, my parents is in Australia and what if they die on their way back. After I bought the machine, i ran home as fast as I can.
Finally I was home, it was 11:55 PM, it was almost 12:00 AM. I read the instruction and it was 12 already. I turn on on the switch bottom and turn the handle and the light bulb light up. “Hello?”, I said. “What do you want?”, said i whispering voice inside the machine. I can’t believe it work! “umm…why are you haunting my house?”, I said. “Your house? It’s my house i live here before all of you!”, said a whispering voice inside the machine. “But i don’t get it, i did not do anything to you, so why do you have to haunt my house? I mean your house?” ,I said. “Oh, i thought… nevermind, i don’t think i have a reason to haunt your house i should go, than.” said the whispering voice inside the machine. “Thank You, will you ever haunt my, i mean your house again?” I said. “No, since i am dead the house now belongs to you, Bye.” The machine turned of, i was so happy that the ghost won’t return. I did not knew that it will be easy to get rid of a ghost! I decided to call my parents. When I call them, they did not answer but a recorded voice says the number that you call is not available. I nearly dropped my phone because what if they have a problem, like what they say in the book. I remember the part that the book said “ If one of your family live in that house, it’s too late!” My heart was beating. So i take a little nap. A few hours later while i was resting a number call, it was an Australian number. “Hello, Jane, It’s mom and dad, we just want to let you know that we are gonna be home at NYC tomorrow at 2:35 PM.” said, mom. I was so happy that they were fine! “ Really, i am so glad that you are fine!” I said. “ We have to go and pack up, honey. See you tomorrow!” said mom. I hang up the phone and prepare everything up, the house was messy and i need to bake a welcome cake for them. I just realize that tomorrow was Saturday, i have so much time to prepare. I was to tired so i decided to go to sleep and prepare things tomorrow. I felt happy that i got rid of the ghost.
The next morning i dress up, wash my face and brush my teeth and eat some breakfast. After i am done with all of that, i bake cake and clean the house. After all the hard work i did, it was 1:58 PM. I was so excited that my parents is coming. I wait until the doorbell rang.
It was 2:35 PM already,I thought for a while, is my parents trying to trick me or something. They should be here now. I few while later, a doorbell rang. I jump out of the sofa rush to the door with a happy face, i open the door and it wasn’t my parents but it was a strange man. “Good Afternoon, Ms.Jane. We have a bad news for you.”, said the man. “Bad news? What is it?”, I said with a worried face. “Your parents has died during their flight back to NYC.” ,said the man. I didn’t say anything, i shut the door and started to cry. For the rest of my life, i got obsessed with the image of my parents.
I live unhappily Ever After.
