Then She Fell…

husband had agreed to buy this apartment on some conditions, if a

cleaner and a painter came to clean the whole place up, all for free.

Tracy wasn’t very keen on the word ‘free’ but decided that it was all

worth it.

Four weeks had passed and everything was now in place. Fanny

and Hubert had sold their old apartment, the painter and cleaner

had come and furniture was now moved in, although boxes of

crockery and stuff still lay untouched everywhere.

That night, as Fanny and Hubert sat at the dinner table,

surrounded by brown cardboard boxes, Hubert announced that his

work wanted him to go to Narrachoot for a whole week.

friend, Fanny went to sleep and woke up once again, this time to the

howl of something creepy and mysterious.

‘Fanny, Fanny, you are next’


it roared.

Fanny was now extremely scared and nervous. She looked around

and saw that the window was open again! Fanny shoved the covers

down to the end of her bed and stood on her pillow which was now

wet and cold. She reached out the window to pull it back in and felt

something push her.
