It Happened One Night

Words 101

“Hurry or you’ll miss the train!”

Pushing and shoving, they squeezed into the car before Grandpa drove off all by himself.

“It’s so dark and eerie.” Lilly shivered.

“Ghosts live in this jungle.” Rishi said with relish.

“Mamma!”

The car shuddered to a stop.

A blinding darkness engulfed them. Crickets shrieked. Lilly whimpered.

Grandpa opened the bonnet.

“Let me see.” A disembodied voice said.

Rishi dropped the torch.

The engine sputtered to life.

“Thank you.” Grandpa offered money.

“Money is of no use to me.” The shadow moved. “This boy…”

Gasping, Rishi threw off the crushing weight of the Unexplained Mysteries.
