Story: It was a dark and stormy night. The sky was lit up with occasional flashes of lightning, casting an eerie glow over the desolate landscape. The wind howled and whistled through the trees, a ghostly moan that set my hair on end. I was lost, wandering down the abandoned road, searching for the manor I had heard so much about. It was said to be haunted by malevolent spirits, and I was both frightened and intrigued.

As I approached the entrance of the manor, I could see that it was decrepit and forsaken. The door hung off its hinges and the windows were boarded up. I hesitated for a moment, wondering if I should turn back, but my curiosity got the better of me. I pushed open the door and stepped inside.

The inside of the manor was even more desolate and eerie than the outside. The walls were peeling and the floorboards creaked under my feet. The air was thick with the smell of decay and I could hear whispers and laughter echoing through the empty halls. I felt as though I was being watched, as though something malevolent was lurking in the shadows.

Suddenly, I saw a spectral figure darting through the halls. I couldn’t see its face, but I could feel its cold breath on my neck. I ran, stumbling and tripping over my own feet, but I couldn’t shake the feeling of being pursued. I could hear the phantom laughing, its cold and cruel laughter echoing through the halls.

I finally stumbled out of the manor, my heart pounding in my chest. I ran down the abandoned road, not daring to look back until I was far from the manor. I never went back, and I never spoke of what happened that night.
