“But there are ghosts!” Jill almost cried.
“Don’t be afraid! We all were inside, and there’s nothing to fear.” The other girls nodded in agreement. The snippy girl who was pushing Jill toward the door put a pumpkin mask on Jill’s head. “You are the scariest ghost now.” The girls laughed. Jill moved uncertainly toward the back door of the mansion, and the old stairs creaked under her light steps. Staying at the door, she looked back.
“Remember! You need to go up to the second floor backwards and find a mirror there!” one of the girls shouted to her.
“If you turn around, the ghosts will catch you!” another girl added. Jill sighed and finally entered the mansion.
“What a fool! She bought it!” As soon as the door of the mansion slammed shut behind Jill, the girls in the courtyard laughed even louder and rushed in all directions. And the victim of their joke slowly moved to the stairs leading to the second floor. She tried to see her friends in the courtyard through the windows, but they were too dirty, and the pumpkins on the windowsills blocked the view.
“Is there someone here?” Jill screamed and closed her eyes. She stood there for several minutes but there was no answer.
“Are you okay, child?” The voice made Jill jump up and turn around. A tall Wolfen woman in strange clothes stood right in front of her.
“Sorry! I didn’t mean to disturb you! I didn’t know that someone lives here!” The girl backed away.
“No worries.” The witch smiled, “nobody really “lives” here. These obnoxious girls sent you alone to a haunted house, and they were afraid to even go to the porch. Isn’t that low? Are you not overcome with resentment and anger?” Jill felt angrier and angrier with every word of the stranger. She was really hurt.
“Yes.” The fear in Jill’s voice was replaced by anger.
“Don’t worry, child. It’s okay to be angry with those who sent you into the clutches of evil spirits.” The witch smiled wider. The pumpkins on the windowsills slowly turned to her. “We’ll find a way to get even with these girls.”
