A Scary Bedtime Story: Haunted House

Once a lady lived in an old house. Her neighbours told her that it was a haunted house, but the lady did not believe the neighbours.  When the lady was living in the house, she was happy to see that the house was completely furnished. She did not see anything move right in the house. On the day of the first night in the house, she got into bed in a very good mood. She was just going to sleep when she heard an odd sound, way off in some distance. It sounded like this: “My home, My home, My home.”

She tried to ignore the sound at first but she could not. Finally, she decided to get out of bed and investigate the sound.  When she opened her bedroom door, the sound became louder: “My home, My home, My home.”  

The lady walked down the hallway. Then the sound got louder: “My home, My home, My home.”

She headed downstairs very fast. Now it was even louder! “My home, My home, My home.”

And when she went into the dining room. It was so loud! “My home, My home, My home.”

The sound was coming from a corner of the room, she realised.

She walked in that direction. “My home, My home, My home.”

There was a chest of drawers in the corner. The sound was very dangerous now. “My home, My home, My home.”

The lady opened the top drawer. There was nothing there. “My home, My home, My home.”

She opened the second drawer. There was nothing there. “My home, My home, My home.”

She opened the third drawer. There was nothing there. “My home, My home, My home.”

Finally, the lady opened the bottom drawer, and there she saw something strange such that the voice stopped coming. It was a roll of wrapping paper in it!

Was it the roll that was speaking? Or Was it some ghost? No one could investigate the reason to date. If you could find out the reason,  let your friends also know about it.
