First File :Chapter One :Our Old Mansion
This story started many generations ago in my family, but the reality and truth was far more barbaric and cruel then you could have ever imagined. I will share this story with all of you.
We had an old mansion that nobody used anymore, but the grounds had some nice buildings where we could stay if we wanted to have our vacations there. It is told that even now, on some nights, you can hear screams and cries from below the ground. And of course, as we still were young when we heard these stories for the first time, we thought maybe there was a reason for those sounds, and started to explore the ruins of that mansion every year when we were there.
The only strange thing we were able to find was a solid wall with strange holes in it.
But time passed, and we grew older and started to think those stories were just stories, never thinking back on those cries until we were adults.
My cousin became head of the family and wanted to live in the main house again. However, since it was a ruin, he needed to demolish the remaining walls and the half-fallen roof. It would become a bit bigger and would also have a cellar so we could store some things. Almost every wall was gone, and only the strange wall in the middle of the mansion remained. There was no real room behind it and no door so it was very strange. The people hired for the demolishing came to my cousin and us who were there as well and told us that they had uncovered a staircase that went down, but they had not gone down yet. They asked if we wanted to go down, and for us it was like we finally could find out if there was a reason behind those stories of screams and cries.
From the car, we took some flashlights and a few candles and then started walking towards that staircase with a lot of confidence. I wish I had never gone down that staircase...
