I remember telling ghost stories at sleepovers when I was a young girl. Some of the common ones made their rounds, but there were on or two that even now kind of spook me out. What is about scary stories that we like so much?
I stumbled across Enchanted when I was looking for my “E post” for this challenge and couldn’t get the story out of my head. It ALWAYS creeps me out when kids are used in the story; especially kid demons, zombies, or ghosts.
I thought this story was wonderfully visual. I could see this, like a movie, playing on a screen in my mind. We aren’t exactly given a perfect idea of the time which this was set at the beginning but I imagine the little girl in a blue and white dress, her long brown hair flowing. I’ll bet that the people that live in her house in the future might see her dart behind the trees of the house, or even laughter carried on the breeze when she is playing with the other children.
Have you ever toured through an old house and felt something or someone walk behind you. Your hair stands up and you feel this cool brush or air crawl up your back. You turn around quickly but there is nothing there. Maybe you are downstairs watching TV late at night, and during a quiet moment between commercials you hear the stairs to the attic creak, like someone was walking on them. You are confused, because you know you are alone in the house, but those stairs only make that noise when someone walks on them. *insert creepy music*
Personally, I love old houses. I sometimes will pull over to take a picture if I see one because I’m curious about the people that lived there. What their story was like. You know? Did you have a story that used to scare you when you were a kid?
