It was the month of November, mid of November probably. The family went on a vacation trip. Wilber as well as his family set out for New Castle in the UK. They reached the Washington Dulles International Airport and the departure time of the flight was at 8 o’ clock in the morning. However, they all boarded the flight and the airplane took off at the correct time. Wilber used to job at a factory as an employed person. His wife, Cassandra was a senior cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital in the UK. Nevertheless, the eldest and the youngest daughters of his, were studying about Aviation and Alexis was studying for becoming a commercial Airline Pilot while Adriel was studying for ATC duties and management. Luciann was a student at a medical college in New York (in the USA) and she was proceeding to become a child specialist. And by this, we get know their occupation and let’s proceed to the main part of the story. The aircraft landed at the correct time and all of the passengers alighted at the correct airport in the UK. Cassandra reserved a cab and they headed towards their inn in the city of New Castle. Five of them reached the place. It was peaceful area with greenery all around. They liked the place very much. However, something struck Luciann’s mind which led her to dislike the house. She said to the other sisters, “Hey ! Don’t you guys feel something weird about this place ? Just notice the structure of the house carefully, it seems to be so weird to me. And the neighbourhood is almost vacant and also there’s a graveyard at the corner. I don’t like it at all.” But the other sisters ignored her and Alexis clutched Luciann’s hand and took her inside the house. The interior part of the house seemed to be totally opposite to that of the exterior part of the house. The interior walls were decorated with archaic paints and many beautiful sketches were on the walls, which made them feel like somehow they landed in the ancient world. They explored the house. They unloaded the stuffs from their suitcases and settled there. Adriel’s birthday was on the following day, so they all had fun by talking to each other and planning good things for Adriel’s birthday. She would turn 25 years old on the following day. She invited her boyfriend, Nicholas, at her birthday party. At that time, Nicholas was present in London. However, he affirmed to attend Adriel’s birthday party on the following day. The next or the following day turned in. Each of them was very glad and they all were hastening for the birthday party. In the evening, Nicholas came in their house with a gift for Adriel. They did a party last night and spent the time with laughter and joy. At the end, Nicholas was requested to stay in that house, on that day as it was very late night for him to drive to his own house. He stayed in Adriel’s room with her. A breeze blew around making them fall asleep in the snowy, windy, calm and windy night. The moon shone brightly in the mid sky and covered the whole place with it’s silver cloak. The moonlight passing through the casement of the window seemed to brighten the whole dark room and along with that, the cool breeze seemed to pass gently on the eyes of Adriel, making her eyes sleepy and kind of in a state where one’s eyes cannot stay opened anymore. One can continue dreaming of being present alone with the stars in the sky and that peaceful breeze fulfilling the rest of the needs.
“How peaceful and calm this night can be !”, Adriel murmured.
The very following day turned in. Nicholas left for his work in London. He jobbed at a bank in London, as a senior accountant.
Since the family was on a vacation trip, Wilber reserved a car and drove that car to the new places for touring and exploring the city. But Luciann did not join them. She got a lot of assignments to complete. Luciann did not join them. She was busy completing her assignments, that she got from the college. She felt a bit sleepy that afternoon and put her head down on the desk, but somehow her notice went to the corner of the kitchen. She found a short-heightened figure in a black outfit, who constantly seemed to stare at her. She was feeling very insecure and in a state where anyone could fall in short of words. She yelled out, “Who’s there ?”. No-one was found to give a response to her question. “Who’s there ?”, she yelled out these words for more two times. Since no-one responded, she said, “If you don’t divulge the truth to me about yourself, I will be bound to take a legal action against you.” Silence shivered in the whole area. Since no-one responded, she had no option but to head towards that place. She picked up a knife from the cabinets and gradually moved towards that figure. But the moment she reached the kitchen, but was about to go at the corner, that figure was gone. She felt very terrified. She dismissed the same case as her hallucination and returned to her seat. Everything was going well, until and unless, she again found that figure at the corner of the kitchen. She took another same attempt of heading towards that place, but couldn’t find anyone. This time, she returned to her seat and called up the emergency number for help. “Hello, I am Luciann Jessi Wilson speaking. I am alone at my home as the others have gone out for a short trip of exploring this city. And I don’t know, but a figure in a black outfit is constantly making me feel rattled as it appears at the corner of the kitchen. But when I went there, I found none. I want your help, please.” The listener comforted her with the assurance that their supportive team would reach at her location, soon, as her location got tracked from her phone itself. She decided to escape from her house, through the back door. The moment she started to rush to do the same, all the lights went off. She felt very scared. She felt as if someone was snorting and it seemed to her that someone was following her as she could hear the footsteps very clearly. “My Lord, Jesus, please save my life father. I beg to you for the same.”, she uttered out in the pitch dark room. She switched on the flashlight of her smartphone and she turned back, just a few inches away that figure in black outfit, was standing…
She yelled out, “If you think that you ain’t a coward person, then confront me.”
The black figure disappeared from that place, within a fraction of second while she was blinking her eyes. She could not even understand what was going on with her. She felt a cold handed touch from behind and turned back and noticed a little sweet girl. That girl said to her, “I am Jennifer Davis. I never got to experience the loving of a sister in my life. I had always been lonely, since I was born. And now, I ain’t a human anymore. But don’t be scared of me, I want you to accompany me. I appeared in this way, to a lot of people. They did not care me rather they escaped away. My parents rejected me as their daughter, when I was only 5 years old. I don’t know why, but since then I had been resident in a church where people taught me educational things and looked after me. But I never experienced the way one feels, when he or she is truly taken care of and loved from the bottom of the heart. And one day, I died off an accident near this house. Nevertheless, do you want me to experience the love of an elder sister ?”, she said all these words to her in an emotional way, to Luciann. Luciann felt very sorry for that little girl. She imagined herself to be in Jennifer’s position and realized the pain which she had to encounter all through out her life. Ultimately, Luciann found no option but to love and take care of Jennifer as her little sister. She said to Jennifer, “Yes dear sister, I am going to be for you whenever you need me. I swear I am going to make you feel as you are with your real elder sister, I am going to be with you for the rest of my life, I promise you.” Jennifer told Luciann that she had to go with Jennifer, somewhere she would take her to. Luciann agreed on Jennifer’s point and blindly started to walk with her towards the place she was being taken by Jennifer. She never realized that she went inside the graveyard with Jennifer, as Jennifer made her do works blindly. Jennifer took Luciann to an highly elevated land and she said to Luciann, “Now close your eyes and feel as if you are in a beautiful garden. You want to accompany me, always, so for that be prepared for whatever you are going to encounter now. Then forever, you are going to be mine. We shall be immortal forever.” A high pitched voice of a woman screaming echoed in the place.
“Jennifer”, Luciann got up and yelled out. She found herself on a bed and also found herself, surrounded by her family and that emergency supportive team.
The supportive team informed her that she was found lying near the ground in an unconscious state and she was about to die. Her family got emotional. Everybody present there asked Luciann about Jennifer, She told everyone that Jennifer was her little sister. The doctor advised everyone not to be emotional and heart-broken in-front of Luciann, cause she was suffering from a mental disorder, as presumed by the doctor. Her own real siblings felt very weird and as advised by the mental doctor, everyone left the room.
She kept wondering all those things in her mind, when the figure in the black outfit appeared a few inches away from her. Lights went off. And she felt as if someone grabbed her throat from behind and whispered, “Luciann, you are going to get your sister, Jennifer from now onwards forever. We are immortal now. Haha !”
They found her dead body but no blood was found. The family got extremely heart-broken, as they lost one of their beloved daughters. Finally, the supportive team informed everybody that whoever would take that house as a temporary residence, at-least one of the members of that group had to encounter death and that too, in the same way.
The real owner of the house remained unknown to everyone.
Ultimately, by taking the permission of the neighbourhood and higher authorities, that house was legally sealed and no-one could ever stay in that house.
Nothing could be done then, they all prepared to work for the rituals so that the spirit of Luciann could live in peace forever.
