A Horrific Night - Chapter 2

Today Bella will change her whole view about the Paranormal. Read it to Find out more !
As we finished hogging at the subway and I had accepted Steff's hideous dare, we proceeded to my place. Steff parked the car at the driveway and I walked through my front porch and unlocked my door, no one was at home till now. I was irritated at my mom's tardiness.

Steff comes in and we settle on the couch and watch our favorite television program, "One Tree Hill" (whoa, I love Chad Murray, he is so damn cute). While we are watching, my cell phone rings, I answer the call. It was my mom on the other line.

(Conversation between Bella and her Mom)

MOM: Bella darling, I am so sorry I will be running late, you could invite Steff over and you girls could hang out. But please don't do something stupid.

Bella: That's very normal mom, you don't have to act so formal. You’re always running late. Bye.


**Bella hangs up**

**********************************************************************************************

Steff's POV

Bella and her mom share a very weird relationship. Bella always is very agitated by her Mom's behavior and I don't seem to understand WHY! Bella throws her phone on the table and I ask her, why the bad mood, she says just chuck it, it's nothing new. So Bella, are you ready? Bella replies, "Ready for what? I say to her, Bella! What the hell, you forgot the dare?" Bella exclaimed loudly **Oh damn** and said in a pacifying tone.. "NO, NO Steff I didn't."
"Okay!" I reply sarcastically.

Night sky had drawn its black blanket, the stars shimmered in the sky, and it was a perfect full moon night. It all seemed so calm. But it had its own uncanny feeling attached to it.

**********************************************************************************************

Bella's POV

The house that Steff showed me did look creepy; it did have a creepy feeling attached to it. But I was a very skeptical person; I would never believe something till I see it with my own eyes. I went to my room and packed my bag for the night stay at the haunted house. I took a torch with me, so that my eyes are able to see Ghost (giggling), a blanket to keep me warm, since winter had draped its cold arms. I headed down to the kitchen stuffed my bag with chips, biscuits, some chocolates and not forget some cold drink. It looked like I was going for some picnic (haha). I checked the time on my phone it was 11.30.

**********************************************************************************************

(Conversation between *Steff and Bella*)

Bella: Steff so let's go?
Steff: Oh yeah, it’s already 11.30. You don’t wanna be late (laughs).

**Steff switches the TV off, and we head out of the house, and get into the car**

Steff: Bella all the best! I hope you see some ghost. (hehe)
Bella: (grinning) Shut Up!! And be realistic!

**********************************************************************************************

Bella's POV

I get out of the car and I look at the house, it's pitch dark. I couldn’t see anything in front of me. Even the moonlight was of no use. Not a soul to be spotted, to be honest not even in a dog. I was a little freaked out, but I swallowed the fear and bid Steff bye.

**********************************************************************************************

Steff's POV

"I’ll come and collect you tomorrow morning okay? All the best sweets," I wished Bella luck and I was a little scared for her too. "Bella," I said, "be careful."
Bella replied, "Yeah Steff don't you worry young lady, the ghost will take care of me and she laughed her way to the house."

I started my car engine and drove home, while driving a black cat passed my car, I gave a immediate brake and, I banged my head on the steering wheel, I was flabbergasted. I got out of my car hoping and praying that I didn’t kill the poor kitty, and to my surprise there was nothing there. I was freaked out completely, I quickly got in my car and as I started my engine I've seen a dark figure standing in front of me, it was a female figure. I froze completely, I sped for my life. As soon as I reached home, I tried to call Bella. But her number was coming switched off; I had a terrible fear inside of me. I knew something bad was going to happen. And it was going to be my fault.

**********************************************************************************************

Bella's POV

I carefully made my way to the entrance of the house, with the help of my torch. The torch was useless because I was such an idiot; I forgot to charge the battery before leaving the house. I somehow managed to reach the main door of the house, the wood flooring on the porch made a very squeaky noise, owing to the fact that no one lived there for quite a long.

I tried to turn the doorknob, but it wasn’t opening. I have seen a window which was half-broken and I broke it fully with the help of my torch, which was useless. And I managed to get myself in. The house smelt musty, I removed my mobile from my pocket to see if I were getting any range, I wasn’t. I switched the torch option on my phone on and made my way to the rest of my house. There was a deafening silence, every word I said would echo. Suddenly I heard someone run upstairs, I switched positions and shone to torch to the stairs, there was no one there.

I blamed it on my fear of being all by myself in a stuffy atmosphere. I settled on a couch and waited till I could hear or see something. I was suddenly made aware, with a high pitch shriek of a woman being strangled. I soon got up of the couch, and headed up the stairs. I looked into the rooms there was no one. I was certainly scared at this point, I headed down the stairs and started investigating the house, while I was at the dinner table, I felt like I've seen a figure of a woman with the corner of my eyes behind me, I turned around and there wasn’t anything.

I felt a cold chill down my spine; wherever I moved, I felt like I was being followed, I could hear footsteps. I started believing that there was something paranormal about this place and that Steff was right. I didn’t want to stay any longer, so I headed towards the window I came in from, and I was startled, I've seen a woman in black, a clear view.

I just threw myself out of the window and ran for my live, I could hear someone running behind me, at a fast pace I just kept running till I spotted Steff's car in front of the gate. I ran till I found myself safe in Steff’s car, I closed the door and tried to catch up with my breath everything around me was revolving, Steff's words kept echoing, until I regained myself as we both looked at the house like this was the last time we would ever go near it, and we saw a woman with an ax behind the iron gate, waiting to get us. We yelled and Steff drove the car at a very high speed, until we reached home where I was greeted by my mother.

**********************************************************************************************

(Conversation between Bella, her Mother and Steff)

Bella: Mom!!
MOM: Where the hell where you? Do you have any idea Bella that I was freaked out!
Bella: I am so sorry Mom, I Just went out with Steff. And I lost track of time!
MOM: Why do you both look so freaked out? Is all okay?
Bella: Yeah everything is fine! (With a fake smile)
Mom: Let's get in, it’s beginning to get cold.
Bella and Steff (together): Yeah, Yeah.
Mom: Oh Bella, by the way I got you a movie!
Bella: A Movie!!! Oh my God! (surprised voice)
Mom: Yeah, Don’t you wanna know which one? (Smirking devilish)
Bella: Which one? (Looking at the Mother weirdly)
Mom: The Woman with the AX.
Bella and Steff (together): AHhhh.

And the mother removes the ax and transforms to the ghost that Bella and Steff had seen in the house.

**THE END**
How was the story? Was it thrilling enough?
Yes! It was amazing.
It was okay! Not that thrilling.
It put me to sleep.
