The date was October 31st, Hallowe'en, as a young girl with beautiful darkbrown hair was walking along the lake alone. She stopped at the shore and caught sight of her reflection in the
calm water. She seemed to be sad and completely alone...
Her eyes were empty and black... Pitch black.. As she was standing there, with her head in the clouds, a dark threatening shadow rose in her reflection. A shiver ran down her spine.
Dark hands came out of the dark and tried to slowly get hold of her neck. As she turned around nobody was there to be seen.
The wind was blowing through the dry leaves, it seemed as the wind whispered something. She pulled up her scarf and continued her way to the small path which reached almost the centre
of the lake.
Steps were to be heard behind her. The sound grew louder, faster and faster the steps were approaching her. As she turned around she caught a glimpse of a dark silhoutte then her
body fell into the freezing water.
Deeper and deeper she sank, unable to swim.
Desperately she was struggeling for breath. Was this her last moment? Was she meant to die here? Here? In the cold darkness? Like her elder sister?
On the brink of death somebody pushed her up to the surface. Under heavy coughing she came to breath again. Reaching out to hold onto something she got hold of the little path she
had been pushed of and pulled herself out with all her might onto the safe, dry path.
Wet to the bones and utterly perplexed about the previous happenings she made her way home almost frozen to death.
From now on she came by watching the calm surface of the lake everyday... Except Hallowe'en...
