Haunted Halloween

0 INK

Five teenagers playing truth or dare on Halloween, venture into an old 'abandoned' palace.

963 readers have visited Haunted Halloween since XMatthewxHitomiX created it.

Introduction

Haunted

One day, 100 years ago, an evil witch - mad at the King for killing her son - cursed the Prince, making him never age, never die, unless the King promise never to take the life of another. The King unfortunatly couldn't make such a promise and so Arthur was cursed to live forever, never aging, watching those he loved age and die.

In the small town of Grantville Woods, there is an old palace that has stood empty for almost 100 years. The townspeople say that the palace is haunted, because in the winter smoke comes out of the chimneys. They say that the son of the old King still lives in the palace, and will eat your soul if you go in.

On certain days, if you are there at the right time, you may see a young boy around the age of 18, sitting on the ledge of one of the balconies, looking out at the ocean. If you are close enough you will be able to see the lonely, and sad look in the boy’s eyes.

One night, All Hallows Eve (Halloween), a group of teenagers are playing truth or dare in the field next to the palace. Sitting around the small fire, one of the kid’s notice a light inside the palace, the light gets brighter and the silhouette of a teenager no older than them appears in the window.

The kid points it out and the group of teenagers decide to venture inside the palace, assuming it would be an awesome story to tell the grandkids when they get older – providing that the Prince doesn’t eat their souls first.

Arthur Faustus

Arthur looked at the girl and gave a small shrug as he responded. "I don't know why she cursed me and not my father. It is as big of a mystery to me as it is to anyone else." He turned to walk down the hall again, his hands in his pockets. "Whether you believe me or not, its true," he said as he started down the hallway, towards the stairs.

Zelda couldn't help but giggle a little at Ivan's comment. She jumped a little as a guy began talking to them. She was shocked innitially, but soon got over it as the rest of her friends began speaking with him. She sat silently and listened. Oddly enogh what he was saying was making a lot of sense to her. "I believe you." She finally spoke up as she looked at her friends and then back at the Prince. "I honestly do, it makes more sense than you being a ghost." She said as she took a few steps closer to him.

Arthur Faustus

Arthur smiled softly as he heard one of the girls say that she believed him. He stopped and turned around to face the group of teenagers again. "I'm glad to hear that, miss," he said as he gave her a soft smile. "May I ask why you guys came here in the first place? Most people avoid this place like the plague," he said with a curious glint in his eyes.

"Yeah, I'm not entirely sure why but I do too. " Emily had to agree that it was definitely better than him being a ghost. She pondered over his question, she shrugged in response. "I dunno. I think that's the reason exactly. We're stupid teenagers trying to explore exactly what we're told not to..." she scanned the wall of paintings. "These are beautiful, the whole house is. " She told Arthur.

Ivan scratched the top his head, remaining completely silent as everyone else was talking with the Prince. He began to wonder if he was going completely mad or just slightly when the Prince explained what happened to him, but soon waved the thought off Emily and Zelda said that they believed him, "Well, perhaps I wont be headed to the asylum and if I do, I'll have company. I believe this "ghost's" claim as well," He put the 'ghost's' part in air quotes. "or should we just continue running around screaming that he is a ghost while having to change out pants when we get home?"

"Yeah that's exactly it." Zelda said, agreeing with Emily on why they were there. They were a bunch of stupid kids just wanting to explore whatthey weren't supposed to. She then turned and looked Ivan. "Yeah I think it's a much better plan to believe him. Plus I don't think our dear Prince Arthur he would hurt a fly, let alone us." She said and looked back at the Prince, giving him a kind smile. "I have to apologize Prince Artur, but I'm pretty sure none of us have been in the presence of a prince so we don't know if we should curtsy or bow or what have you, ya know?" She said with a small laugh. She was pretty sure if she tried to curtsy, though, she'd fall flat on her face.

Sammie sat quiet while her friends talked to the prince. She had started wondering down the hall wondering if anyone else would notice. As the voices and the light faded she continued to walk down the hall studding all the details in each painting. As she got further she noticed a candle and some matches sitting on a small shelf. She lit the candle and continued exploring. She was determined to find out more about the prince, sense she can't really ask him at the moment. She looked back down the hall before entering the library again.

Arthur Faustus

Arthur smiled at the group, "You don't have to bow or curtsy or anything, in all honesty I'm no longer a prince techniqually." He looked at them all, "Would you like something to eat or drink? We can head to the dinning hall or kitchen if you'd like...." Arthur looked around the group, waiting for the answer. "Although, one of you seems to be missing."

Emily shook her head and graciously declined his offer. "No thank you. It would be great to see more of the house though if it isn't any trouble. " She smiled slightly at at him and then turned back to the wall. She ran a finger delicately along a large intricate frame. "These are gorgeous," She mused "It must have taken decades to accumulate them all." They were all beautiful landscapes of gorgeous green land that seemed to go on forever and still lifes of simple things that yet were made to look extraodinary.

Ivan looked around for Sammie, Huh, that's odd of her to just disappear like that, he thought to himself. "Oh well, it looks like Sammie is gone, but no worries! Captain Cannon Fodder will find her!" He said as he posed in a very awkward heroic stance before his strode down the hall looking into each door asking, "Hey Sammie?" At least, he did this until he reached the library, "You in here, Sammie?" He entered the room and started to peek around, "Sammie?" He asked once more, an eyebrow quirked.

Sammie heard Ivan calling her name. She was scanning the book shelves to find some type of history book. "Yeah Ivan I'm in here." She said moving her candle closer to the end of the isle so he could see the light.

Arthur Faustus

Arthur smiled as Emily said something about the paintings. "It did take quite a while to accumulate them all. When the two get back, I will take you on a tour of the house if you'd all like," he said with a small, polite smile. "You know you are the first group of people to come in here and not get completely freaked out and leave the instant you saw me."

Mark Weber

Mark yawned quietly as he leaned up against the wall. He looked around noticing how comfortable everyone was, not seeming to be scared about the fact that there was a 'ghost' standing in front of them. How in the world can they not be freaked out about the fact that the 'ghost' of the old Prince is here talking to us? It's just weird, he thought to himself as he gave another small yawn.

Zelda slightly shrunk back as everyone continued talking to the Prince or walked off somewhere else. She instead was lost in her thoughts as she stood there playing with her hair. She wondered if he secretly went out in public to get himself food and stuff like that. She actually wondered about quite a few things, but then was pulled out of her thoughts when she heard him say he'd take them on a tour. She smiled at the thought that might be fun. She looked over to see Mark up against a wall yawning. She walked over so she was next to him. "What's up Mark? You seem to be unusually quiet." She teased as she poked him playfully, though there was some truth in her statement. He was being rather quiet and she wondered why.

Mark looked over as Zelda walked up to him. "What's up Mark? You seem to be unusually quiet." Mark gave a small shrug in response to her question, "I don't know, just thinking really." Thinking about how this isn't freaking anyone else out. I mean, this is kind of creepy if you think about it, he thought to himself as he gave Zelda a small smile.

Emily smiled up at the painting. She then turned to Arthur, giving him the same bright smile. "That would be wonderful, thank you." She let out a small chuckle at his second comment. "Well, can you blame them? This place is haunted, and you are simply a ghost determined to eat the souls of all those who sneak in here, remember?" She reminded him smiling a bit.
"I wonder how those ridiculous rumours got started...."

Zelda nodded as she debated on pressing a little further. She wasn't sure if it was a good idea to press further on the subject, but then she decided the worst he could do was get upset with her. "If you don't mind me asking, what are ya thinking about?" She asked him as she looked at him with a soft smile. She had pulled her hair to one side and was now mindlessly braiding it. When she reached the end of the braid she decided she might as well keep the braid and put a hair tie that was on her wrist around the end of the braid.

Mark Weber

Mark gave Zelda a small smile, "Nothing really in particular." He looked over at Arthur for a few seconds before looking away at the flame of a candle. He freaks me out....he should be dead right now...He shouldn't be alive, he thought to hiself. He stuck his hands into his pockets quietly.

Arthur Faustus

"I am? Well that's not nice to say about someone," he said with a soft laugh. "I don't know how the rumors got started. Not many people have seen me." He shrugged slightly and gave a soft smile.

Emily too chuckled. A grin spread across her face " No you're right, it isn't; especially seeing as you seem like a perfectly hospitable gentleman." She told him simply. She thought over the second comment and shrugged simply. "I have no idea, but it's probably got something to do with the fact that stupid kids like us believed them." She didn't really have to wonder how they got started, someone probably saw Arthur and just assumed he was a ghost and then from there things just spread out of control.
