The World With Shadows.


This is a horror book. I personally prefer reading horror stories. I'm not an excellent writer, but I hope this will be a good story.

I wanted to give my readers a good experience. I'm not sure whether I'm successful in my attempt. However You have to decide whether the story is good or bad.


Actually this is the first book I wrote. With the hope of writing more I expect all of your reviews in order to improve and do the necessary changes. If you see any error or something that needs an improvement please feel free to include them in your comments.


Chapter 01

Mr. Daniel was an accountant who was working in a famous company in Los Angeles. He was known to be the most reliable worker of the company and Daniel’s boss trusted and had a strong friendship. Daniel was the father of Sarah and Michael and their mother was Lisa. Sarah was the elder and Michael was her younger brother and he was younger than Sarah for four years.

Sarah lived in a world of music and fashion; she didn’t want to live in the real world. She was in a dream world, which make her blind in the real world. She was in high school and as Sarah was good at singing and drawing she was well known in the school both as a singer and as a painter. And she was so beautiful and was the dream of all the boys in the Los Angeles High School.

Michael was learning in college which was nearby their house and he was good at mathematics. He was very popular among girls in the school as he was so handsome. He had two friends who were the same as Michael in the side of learning and both received attraction from girls.

Mrs. Daniel, Lisa was a house wife and she owned a cake shop named “Lisa’s cake” which was in front of their house. So she spent her time with her family as well as with the cake shop. She had the talent of making really beautiful cakes and they were tasty too. Lisa loved her family a lot. She was a caring mother and also a caring wife. She always talked and behaved with her family warmly. Lisa did lot of things to make her family happy and she never wanted to ruin their happiness because of her profession or anything else.

It was Monday, and Mr. Daniel went for work by his luxurious car after dropping Sarah and Michael to school. He entered to his office with a fresh feeling to start the week successfully. He entered his room and kept his bag in a corner of the table and sat on the big and expensive chair which was separated for workers who owned high positions in the company. Suddenly he saw a note which was left for him on the table. Daniel took it and started reading it was from his boss. He wanted to meet Daniel personally in his room. Daniel was curious about the letter. So he went to that room immediately. His boss was waiting for him and as soon as Daniel enters the room, his boss, Mr. Edward started talking.

He said, “You are transferred to our office in Canada. You must leave here immediately.”

Daniel was puzzled and asked, “Why? What are you talking about?”

“Our branch in Canada really needs you. You have to take care of the problem there. I don’t know what and how it happened, these everything seems to be a puzzle to me. You are the only person whom I trust. So you must go and take the position of the manager there. Can you do this? Can you accept this position and go to Canada?” Mr. Edward asked.

“What about my family? I can’t leave them and move to Canada in a sudden! They might get confused.” Said Daniel.

“Trust me everything is going to be alright. I booked tickets for all of you and arranged schools for Sarah and Michael too. Your wife will be free of work as there will be a servant to you and the only problem is I fixed everything but I didn’t arrange a house. There are more than ten houses my agent will take you to see them you can choose any one of them.” Said Mr. Edward.

Daniel’s face gave Mr. Edward a look of surprise and after few minutes of silence Daniel started talking.

“Ok then, I’ll go to Canada. Everything will be fine and don’t worry. I promise to take care of everything.”

“Oh what a relief thank you so much Daniel! Everything is arranged there and choose a house with your family.” Said Mr. Edward.

Daniel returned home after taking the flight tickets from Mr. Edward. He was so surprised of what is going to happen. He imagined what happens when he tell this to his family especially Sarah. She won’t agree to leave Los Angeles because of her friends, her school, her boyfriend, her painting works and singing competitions. She will disagree for sure. But somehow Daniel must make them agree to move to Canada. He should make them feel happy about the change.

Daniel reached home and Lisa got puzzled when she saw her husband early. It is not early he returned from the office after few minutes as their departure was at 10.50 p.m. And as they had to pack everything within few hours he rushed to home. He described everything and she seems lost in the story which her husband told her. There weren’t any documents about the transfer of Daniel and the matter looked strange to Lisa.

However they had to take their children from the schools and they had to pack their stuff in a hurry. So they rushed to schools and took their children home. They described the whole story to them and Sarah’s behavior was the same as Daniel imagined. But there was not anything they could do to make Sarah happy about this but whatever Michael was a bit happy about this although he was upset as well as Sarah.

The family packed everything within five to six hours. And went to the airport before three hours to the departure. Sarah had thousands of calls to answer as it were the last hours they spend in Los Angeles. Her boyfriend was not ready to say good bye.

“Sarah, what about Max? is he okay?” asked Lisa

“No he is not ready to stop our relationship, we will keep our relationship until we die. “Said Sarah.

“Oh hunny, don’t worry it’s just for a year. We will return soon.” Said Lisa.

“Maybe everything will be okay I must change my mind for the sake of everyone. This will be the beginning of a new and happy life. I’m not worrying about anything that I’m leaving here” said Sarah.

“I’m proud of you! You are correct everything is going to be alright. You will find new friends there. And your life will change.” Said Lisa.

But among this discussions Michael was curious about Sarah’s behavior. She never gave up anything for someone’s goodness sake.

Everyone was chatting and was dreaming about the new life they are going to spend in Canada.

Finally they are seated after the boring works with the documents. All the family members were excited and Mr. Daniel was a bit curious about what is going on in the office of Canada.

Chapter 02

It gave Mr. Daniel a relief that Mrs. Daniel has chosen the house that best suits for her but the look of the house made Michael curious and he told Lisa that he do not like that house, but Lisa was so much satisfied with the house so she went inside with her luggage.

Michael was still looking at the house he was afraid of getting into the house. Daniel asked Michael whether he is okay but Michael didn’t hear his father’s words. Daniel understood that Michael is not okay. So he talked to him again more loudly. Michael got surprised of his father’s voice as he was in another world with the house and now he is back to the real world.

The house was not in a good condition or the house was not a good place for a family to live in. Although Lisa wanted to start a new life in the house the Daniel family was not the first to live there.

Five years ago a family from China lived there. The family was with four members, they are father, mother and daughter. They lived a happy life together. But the daughter of the family was disabled with a problem in her brain. So the parents had to take a good care of her. One day the parents were about to go to a party but they found that their daughter is not with them. She was dressed in red with a beautiful ball gown. But she was not there in the living room. So her mother went up stairs to check whether she is there while her father waited in the living room for her mother to take her back. But few minutes passed and everything was silent. The father felt curious and walked towards the stair case to take them to the living room as it was already late to the party. While he was climbing the stair he heard a loud noise from the upstairs room. So he rushed and he was shocked by the thing which was in front of him. The daughter of the family had killed her mother from a knife! Her father screamed loudly and the daughter turned to his side and walked towards him and did the same thing which she did to her mother and the father stared at her for a second and said,

“What are you doing my love you are our daughter why?? Don’t do this call an ambulance and take your mother to a hospital! You can’t live without her. Please! I promise you we can live a good life!”

And the daughter looked at her father with a smiley face and told,

“How can I live a happy life like this I’m a crazy girl. Everyone call me a jerk. Why you want me to live a life like this? We all must die.”

That was the last words of the girl and she suicide in the same way as she did to her parents. Her father was crying and he died.

Chapter 03

Michael and Sarah had to choose their rooms. Sarah rushed to choose a room but Michael was curious about the house so he walked slowly letting his sister to choose the best room for her. So at last Michael was the one who had to live in the room which had a large cupboard and it looked mysterious. Although the room was not going to be a good place for Michael to live he chooses to be there. It was like someone was forcing Michael to stay in that room.

Sarah and Michael set their rooms and Lisa did too. It was a tired day. Daniel didn’t go to the office because it was too late when they arrive Canada. So all the family members went to eat to a traditional hotel. Michael was thinking about the house which they chosen to stay, it was seriously a place that can make a person go crazy. But any of the family members were not feeling uncomfortable with the condition of the house. Everyone was happy and Michael felt that something is wrong with her sister Sarah. She was different; she did not care for Michael as she thought that Michael is a jerk in a way because several times Sarah’s secret plans were ruined by him. Sarah’s behavior was totally changed and although Michael felt that something is wrong with her, their parents were so happy about Sarah’s change. Michael thought that, their parents did not felt the house as a mysterious place so Sarah’s difference made them happy.

However after having the dinner the Daniel family went back home. Michael felt so sleepy. But he wanted to read a book as he has practiced to read a book before he goes to sleep. That day he chose a fairy tale although those were totally for girls. Michael was interested in fairy tales and he read them secretly because if someone see him reading a fairy tale it won’t be good for him. While reading he thought about the new school which he is going to enter and the next day was the first day of school both for Michael and Sarah. Michael thought that the first day will be a good day and he fell asleep with the dreams of how the new school is going to be.

The morning Michael and Sarah woke up and got ready to go to school. As it was the first day their parents had to go with them. Sarah and Michael were in the same school. Everyone came to the dining room to have dinner.

“Good morning everyone how do you feel today?” asked mother.

“Good mom but I miss my friends so much!” said Sarah.

“Oh hunny, I know I understand you but these things are for our goodness sake and it’s not for a long time maybe one or two years. We must face these changes. Life is changing every day. You don’t feel it because you are still a child. You will understand this stuff while you grow up. I’m sure you will find lots of friends!” said Lisa to encourage her.

Lisa too knew that this situation is hard for them and even as an adult she felt uncomfortable with those things. And though she refused to show she felt that something is wrong with the house too. Daniel did not know that the house which they choose is dangerous and any of them did not know what is going to happen and some energies were being powerful enough to make their lives worst


Chapter 04

The house which was known to be a place for spirits and energies among the neighbors is now the house of the Daniel family. However they made their lives familiar with the environment which they are new. Lisa and Michael were curious about the house and any of them did not talk about this with each other. They continued to experience those difficulties individually. Daniel had a lot of work to do in his office as he was sent there for an important purpose and he knew that he cannot solve the problems in the company within two or three years although he had promised his family to return to Los Angeles. All the workers of the company were so helpful to Daniel to continue his work and to solve the matters except one. She was the accountant of the company Daniel knew that the accountant, Helen was a curious person. Daniel’s work was difficult without the help of Helen. But somehow he continued his work successfully.

Everyone woke up and went to have breakfast that morning. As it was a Sunday everyone was in a holiday. But except for Daniel and Sarah. Sarah went to her friend’s house and Daniel had a special meeting. So Lisa and Michael cleaned the table together and Michael thought that it was the best time to talk about the house with his mother.

“Mom, are you okay?” he asked

“Why darling? What’s wrong?” Lisa asked back.

“No mom it’s nothing!” said Michael refusing to talk about the problem with his mother. But Lisa had the same feelings about the house and she wanted to know what his son is going to talk about. So she asked about the matter from Michael again and again. So Michael said the whole thing he wanted to talk with her.

“Listen mom, this house is not normal. Something is wrong here we must move to another house do you feel very good here?” Said Michael at last.

Chapter 05

Lisa looked at Michael for a while and said to Michael, “Yeah, I understand. I thought that I am the only one who feels this in this house. Let’s move to another house. I’ll talk with dad. Don’t worry. But Michael, what do you feel? Did you hear noises or did you see something?”

“I didn’t see anything but I feel something and it is forcing me to walk outside in the night and hardly have I avoided myself. Did you see anything mom?” replied Michael.

“I don’t know yesterday night I came to the dining room to drink some water. I took a glass and it fell down, I didn’t even touch it but somehow it fell down and I felt that someone is with me in the dining room and I asked whether there is someone but no one answered and suddenly I saw a figure walk towards the basement. I was so afraid and I didn’t told about this to your dad.” Said Lisa and her eyes were wet.

Michael felt so sorry for his mother and he told, “Mom, don’t worry now both of us know about this we can do something wait give me a minute.” And Michael ran towards his room and bought his laptop and kept it on the table. Both the mother and the son sat on a chair. Michael started typing and his mother was curious about what her son is going to do. Michael searched to find someone who can help them to solve this problem in this house. And after the attempt for more than two hours he found a person named, Josh. He was an expert ghost hunter. But Lisa didn’t want a ghost hunter to help them. She wanted to leave the house as soon as possible.

“No Michael, we must leave this house no need to do such things. We can’t spend money on such things if it won’t work? We have to rent another house too. Your father will be home soon, it’s just a meeting.” Said Lisa

Lisa was afraid and she was curious about the energy in the house.

Chapter 06

After two hours Daniel came home. He was tired and asked Lisa to make a tea for him and Michael looked at his mother, Lisa and she gave Michael a hopeful look.

Lisa went towards Daniel and said,”Hunny, are you tired? I have something important to talk with you. If you are tired let’s talk later.”

“No Lisa tell me, are you okay hunny?” Daniel asked.

“No Daniel this so important you have to listen to me carefully. And you have to believe me.” Replied Lisa.

“What’s wrong? Are you okay? What happened?” Daniel asked in a shocked voice.

“No don’t get shocked. Just listen everyone is okay. Daniel, something is wrong with this house. We must move to another house. Everything will be alright. And it’s not only me who’s feeling this. Michael feels too and yesterday night I saw a figure walking towards the basement. And in the night I Michael and I hear noises. It’s so scary and when there’s no one at home I hear someone is calling my name and I can’t stay here anymore. Please let’s move.” Lisa said

Daniel was not sure and he did not believe Lisa but somehow he agreed to move to another house. So he decided to call the agent who rents houses. And he told Daniel that there is another house and they could move. After the conversations Sarah came home. She didn’t know anything. When Lisa asked everyone to pack their stuff Sarah got surprised and asked Lisa,

“Mom are we moving to Los Angeles again? Wow thank god!”

Lisa looked at Sarah and said, “No hunny, we are moving to another house.”

“What? But why? Did you feel anything strange here?” asked Sarah in a surprised voice.

All the family members got surprised by Sarah’s words. And Lisa asked Sarah whether she experiences such things. Then Sarah started telling a story and she started crying too.

“Yes mom. The first night when I was in sleep a voice whispered to me and it said, ‘can you help us’ but I didn’t reply. That’s why I came to your room to sleep. I was afraid. Next night it said, ‘don’t be afraid, we’ll help you back if you help us.’ Mom I don’t want to help them but every time when I’m about to tell this to you something avoids me.”

“Oh hunny, don’t worry we are always with you.” Said Lisa and she hugged her daughter, Sarah.

Daniel was surprised and said, “Okay hunny let’s move pack your bags.” And Daniel hugged his daughter.

Chapter 07

Everyone packed their bags and Daniel called the house agent. And according to his answer they had to drive for two hours to reach the new house. The Daniel family got out of the house with the bags. Everyone got shocked by the scene which they saw. A large wall was around the house. It was tall as if it was about to touch the sky and there wasn’t a gate.

Finally they understood that they are lost and they cannot get out of the house until they do what the energy which was in the house wanted them to do. Lisa and Sarah cried loudly and Michael seemed to be so much shocked while Daniel still was looking at the great wall which was in front of them. Suddenly Michael rushed towards his bag which was on a chair in the living room and asked everyone to follow him. He took his laptop and started playing a video. Sarah and Lisa looked at Michael in an angry mood.

“Don’t look at me that way! Just watch this!” said Michael.

Everyone focused on the video which was playing on the laptop. There was a girl who said the same story as Sarah did. That girl had experienced the same thing as Sarah did. And at last the girl had decided to ask for the help of ghost hunters. They solved her problem and the girl said that she is happy and she lives freely because of the ghost hunters.

At last Daniel and Lisa agreed to call the ghost hunters. And they promised to come to their home by the next day. As they promised they came at 10.30 in the morning. The ghost hunters were a team with three men named, Ben, Jack and James. Daniel, Lisa, Sarah and Michael talked with them and told everything and they asked few questions from the family members one by one. Everyone answered them and through their answers the three ghost hunters seemed to understand the situation of the house.

“Actually I don’t know how to say this. But somehow I must say. The spirit is in need of a life. And they want a young life as Sarah’s. We must stay together and you have to follow my instruction.” Said Ben, who was the leader of the team.

Lisa started crying and said, “Please help us! I can’t lose my daughter. My life is this family. I’ll give you anything. Please help us!”

“Don’t worry. And the most important thing is your heart. You must stay strong in your hearts. Don’t lose hope anytime. The strength in your heart is the key to win.” Said James and everyone agreed.

Chapter 08

The Daniel family had to stay together and Sarah knew that they are in a great danger. But she didn’t lose hope. Michael was so curious about what’s next and the ghost hunters understood that the Daniel family is locked up in this house until the spirits fulfill their needs through Sarah.

“The paranormal spirits are weak sometimes. And if you are weak too they could get stronger. The main point is to know what they need. If they are in need of something that we could do, we can simply do it and leave the house. But if they need something that we cannot give to them, the situation might get harder. That’s the time we are all in a danger.” Said Ben in a serious mood.

“Yeah, it’s not only you. We are also in a danger. Usually spirits cannot harm people but if the spirit is stronger, they can harm you. But stay together we can protect ourselves. What we understood is, this is a serious case. Stay in alert. If they can speak to you they must do it now this is the occasion for them to speak directly to you.” Said James.

Jack interrupted James and said, “Can a spirit talk to a living thing? I mean to a human?”

“Absolutely, they can if they are in a situation that they feel like stuck in a place or in a thing they try to talk with people. Sometimes if the person is pure in heart and strong in spirit they can hear them.” Said Ben.

“What? Pure in hear and strong in spirit? What is that?” asked Michael.

“Yeah, it’s quiet strange when you listen to it but it has a deep meaning. Usually we believe children has a pure heart and teenagers are strong in spirit. So you both it means Sarah and you can listen to them maybe!”said Ben.

The ghost hunter team started arranging their equipment and Michael was a big fan of this ghost hunter team. So he was so surprised to see them work. And Michael asked thousands of questions. The ghost hunters had several types of cameras, EVP recorders and much more electronic devices and through those; they were able to talk with the spirits too. Amusing them the spirits talked to them. Through the voices the heard through the recorders they understood that the spirits need Sarah to come to them and set them free. But if she does what they want she will die. The hunters had another option. They were getting ready to set the Daniel family free from this house by catching the spirits through a spirit box.

All the Daniel family was surprised by the work which the ghost hunters are going to do.

Chapter 09

The team of ghost hunter asked the Daniel family members to stay together and not to go anywhere alone. But Michael wanted to go to the wash room so he asked his sister to come with him. But she wasn’t ready to go with him. So Michael decided to ask his mother but she didn’t hear Michael’s voice, something was going to happen. Although Ben and the team told them not to go anywhere alone, Michael wasn’t following them and he decided to go alone. He walked through the kitchen and reached the wash room.

Something appeared in front of Michael suddenly. He got stoned by seeing the figure which was standing in front of him. Michael wanted to scream and run. But he could not do that as the spirit was avoiding him.

“You must stop this! You cannot stop us. We are going to take your sister” said the figure.

“No, I won’t let you. We’ll fight you!” said Michael bravely.

“Ha! Who do you think you are? Can you fight with a spirit?” replied the spirit and it disappeared.

Michael ran back to his parents and he described them what happened.

“Don’t worry. We promise you to keep her safe.” Said Ben. And he gave a. equipment to Sarah and asked her to keep it safe with her and not to keep it anywhere. They wanted Sarah to keep it on her hand until the mission is over. It looked like a mobile phone but it wasn’t. By the equipment they could find where Sarah is.

Chapter 10

The next hour passed and nothing special happened. Everyone was sitting together and Lisa was praying for Sarah. But she wasn’t scared she was ready to face anything.

Suddenly the ghost hunters asked Sarah not to move pointing a camera towards her.

“The spirit is behind you and you have to talk to them right now. Don’t be afraid and ask them what you need to do.” Said Jack.

In his camera there was a figure and the figure was behind Sarah’s chair. She was shivering against the coldness. Everyone felt the coldness which was around them and Daniel said to Ben that it is so cold and he replied saying that it is normal when a spirit is around.

It was Sarah’s turn to ask the spirit the questions.

“What do you want? How can I help you to get what you want?” Asked Sarah.

Suddenly a voice talked through the spirit talk box.

“We want you to set us free by sacrificing your life.” Said the voice

“What do you mean by us? How many of you are here in our house?” asked Sarah

“This is not your house! This is mine. All my friends are here. Three of us need your life.” Replied the voice.

“I won’t sacrifice my life for your freedom! There may be another way.” Said Sarah.

“Yes but it will hurt you. Do you like that way?” asked the voice.

Lisa was about to cry and Daniel avoided her from talking more than ten times. Daniel was silent but he was so afraid about his daughter.

“What is it? Tell me.” Asked Sarah.

“You have to give us your blood as much as we want” replied the spirit.

Everyone got shocked including the ghost hunter team.

Chapter 11

They didn’t want Sarah to accept what the voice asked. But surprising everyone she accepted it.

“Okay I will do it but you must leave this house. Can you?” said Sarah.

Lisa was scared and also angry at Sarah.

“Are you crazy? I won’t let you do this. I will give you my blood, you cannot take my daughter’s blood!” said Lisa angrily.

“We don’t want yours you are not strong you are weak and I have to go to my friends. They are waiting for me. Arrange everything you have only an hour left or I will take her to me.” Said the voice and it disappeared from the screen of the camera.

Daniel sighed. And turned to Sarah, “My baby, I won’t let anything happen to you. This everything is because of me. I’m sorry. I’m always with you. Anyone cannot hurt you.” He said.

“No daddy, it’s not your fault. This is our destiny. We have to face all the challenges that come to us. I love you so much daddy. Don’t worry everything will be alright” said Sarah.

Lisa and Daniel were crying and Michael had a plan in his mind and he decided to talk about it with Ben. So he asked Ben if he could talk to him alone and he accepted. Everyone left the room leaving Ben and Michael in the room.

Chapter 12

Ben was looking at Michael as he noticed him as a great child in a way but Michael was not a sociable character. He didn’t talk much but this time he was ready to do anything to save his sister.

“So Michael what is it? Did you see something or are you afraid of something?” asked Ben. Although he knew that Michael was not afraid of anything he wanted to ask him as Ben was interested in the attitude of Michael.

“No I’m not. I have watched your videos and I have seen that you have so much experience in this subject, but don’t you think this is dangerous?” asked Michael.

“Yeah, it is we must find another way. We have only an hour left. But I’m lost Michael! Here I’ve never seen such a spirit. They are not able to talk more than two or three words with people here they talk without any recorders. The spirits here are so powerful and we have to be careful. Do you have a plan” asked Ben. He was seriously speaking to Michael as Ben identified him as an intelligent kid.

“Yeah, but I’m not sure whether this is going to work.” Said Michael and Ben nodded his head and Michael continued.

“In my room there is a cupboard it is so scary and I never opened it. It looks so old and I think it will be the key to save my sister.” Said Michael.

“Whoa! Maybe can you show me that cupboard?” asked Ben.

“Yeah, Come with me.” Said Michael and he took Ben with him towards his room and after seeing the cupboard he was surprised as it looked so much different from the mysterious cupboards which he has seen before.

“Wow! Michael, this is weird. How did you sleep here? I can’t believe!” said Ben.

“It’s not that hard. But in the night I heard noises inside of this cupboard. I never opened it.” Replied Michael.

“We have to open this. James… Jack… please can you come to Michael’s room immediately?” Ben talked to them loudly and within two minutes they came and as soon as they came Ben described about the cupboard and they brought their equipment. Ben opened the cupboard. The things which were in the cupboard surprised them. It was full of witch crafting stuff. Ben took one by one and kept them on the table which was in the room.

“Don’t you think these things are belong to the spirits?” asked James from Ben.

“Sometimes. We can’t make sure that these are theirs.” Replied Ben.

“If these are theirs there is a way to solve this problem.” Said Jack and Ben looked at him.

“Hey, come on… We can release spirits by burning their stuff.” Said Jack.

Chapter 13

Ben thought about what Jack told for five minutes and he said, “Yes, but it might be dangerous.”

“We are already in a danger. Let’s do it!” said Michael.

“Well, alright then.” Replied Ben.

Ben and the team left the room and Michael followed them.

“This child is so intelligent and he is a great kid” Ben whispered to James’s ear.

Everyone came to the kitchen and Ben described what they are going to do to Daniel and Lisa. And they agreed. So the team got ready to do it. They took all the stuff which they saw to the garden and Daniel put petrol onto it and Ben lightened them. A black colored smoke came and through the smoke three figures appeared and angrily they told,” what are you doing stop this!” But it was too late to stop it.

Suddenly Sarah fell down on the ground and she was shivering. She was wiggling. Something was happening to her. One of the figures touched her leg and it tried to take her towards the fire. Ben, James and Daniel were holding her tightly. Sarah screamed loud and Michael was chanting something from a book. Then one of the figures turned to Michael and said “stop it! Stop it! You can’t fail us!”

The three figures were trying to take Sarah’s life and they wanted to kill her for their freedom. The other figure was fighting with Jack to take what he had on his hand but he didn’t let the figure to take it. The figure wanted to avoid Jack from burning the last cross which was used for witch craft.

Within five minutes the ashes came and the fire stopped the figures disappeared. Ben, James, Jack, Sarah, Lisa, Daniel and Michael were looking one another’s faces. No one could understand what happened. It was all of a sudden. After few minutes everyone laughed and Daniel and Lisa hugged their daughter Sarah. Michael ran towards them and joined them.

Chapter 14

“No need of blood, no need of killing. Now all is well.” Said Ben at last.

“Thank you Mr. Ben! Thank you so much. You saved my daughter. You saved my family!” said Daniel. He was so happy as the problem is over. They could live a happy life now.

“May I say something Mr. Daniel?” asked Ben.

“Of course yes, what is it?” asked Daniel.

“Your son is the hero! Did you hear he was chanting something?” asked Ben from Daniel.

“No what is it?” Daniel asked back.

“It is known to be one of the most sacred prayers in Greek history. He has searched about them and he must be prepared before chanting those. He did it and it is a great work and a miracle. These prayers are dead now a greater person has the ability to pray with them and your son proved that he is a genius. There’s nothing I did. Your son is the hero.” Said Ben proudly.

Daniel stared at Michael for a while and hugged him so tightly and within few seconds Sarah and Lisa did the same. They felt proud of their son.

“Love you so much my little brother!” said Sarah.

“I love you too Sarah.” Replied Michael

The ghost hunter team was looking at the love of this family and finally Ben said, “It’s time for us to leave”

“No you can’t leave, let’s have dinner together!” said Daniel happily.

The team and the family had dinner together and the next morning the team went back and Daniel worked so successfully at his office without any disturbance from Helen and the children had a great time with their family and Michael received special treatments from everyone.

The house was haunted!
The house was haunted!
