I'm 32 years old and I'm a ghost hunter. I hunt for all different places where ghosts might be lurking and check the place out.My friend Agnus and I were on our laptops, finding any emails from our boss. One of them were named 'THE DEATHLY WOODS'. Agnus looked at me with a concerned look and double clicked on the Email. These were the exact words typed on the email:
I'm sorry to say but you and Olivia are going to lose your jobs. We have thought about it and would like to give you a second chance. If you fail, you will hand in your Ghost Hunting equipment and leave the HQ immediately. But if you succeed to find a major sign of a ghost, you will be a definite Ghost Hunter.
The place that I have selected for you and Olivia is the Deathly Woods, right across the road from 'St Victoria's Church'. In the center of the woods is a graveyard, which you must discover. One of the stones says 'Ephina Wilkon'. Research it very well.
Yours Sincerely,I couldn't believe it. We had lost our jobs? This makes no sense. But just yesterday, George said that we were excellent hunters and wouldn't survive without us! How come he sent us a farewell message? Agnus looked worried but confident at the same time. "We have to check out the Deathly Woods, tonight!" Was she crazy? "No way am I going there! Have you heard that legend about it?" I said standing nervously. "No" Agnus said, looking curious. "Well! There was once a lady who lived with her 14 children in a cottage. The cottage was where the graveyard was now. She felt rushed, and pressured. She killed her children and herself. A year ago, two children walked through the woods on Halloween night, eager to trick or treat on the other side of the town. When they were walking, they heard a sudden scream. They looked at each other with pale faces, and followed the scream. When they were closer, they saw a woman dressed in white, falling into a lake and drowning herself" I said, acting out the story as I was saying it. Agnus started laughing. "Yeah, right!" she said wiping her eyes for the laughing tears.
That night, we gathered our equipment and set off to the Deathly Woods. We saw the moon peeking behind the trees shaping an entrance. We saw stones, saying peoples names. They all happened to have the same last name- Wilkon. There was "Henry Wilkon, Samantha Wilkon, Josephine Wilkon, Phillip Wilkon and all types of names. 14 of them! Agnus held onto me close, gripping my shoulder tightly. Agnus screamed. I looked at her. She pointed at something. I followed her finger until I saw a woman in white, drowning little kids in a lake. I couldn't scream. I just couldn't. Instead, my mouth fell open, trying to make a sound but failing. We ran down the woods to the church.
Agnus looked behind us, but I didn't dare to. She pointed behind us, but I didn't look. Instead, I just kept on running. I ran so fast that I lost sight of Agnus. She had gone. I rang George to tell him the news. He didn't understand what I was saying. 'I went to the Deathly Woods and lost Agnus' I said, panting my heart out. 'That's...interesting' George said, in a strange tone. 'Have I lost my job?' I said, crossing my fingers and closing my eyes. 'Of course not! Why would I fire you?' George said, smiling. "But you sent that email to Agnus!' I said, concerned. George left a sudden pause... 'I never sent any email to Agnus'
