Spooky Story


Not very long ago, my grandfather told me a strange tale.

One cold night he had just left the cemetery, where he’d been visiting his wife grave. He decided to go home because he had started to feel very uncomfortable in that ancient cemetery. While he was walking across a huge, dark forest he heard a very loud footstep around him. For this reason a shiver went through his body. He was absolutely terrified!

Just then, he ran away from this strange forest until he arrived at the city center. There wasn’t anybody at this hour... At that moment he felt very tired so he decided to rest on a bank for a few minutes. While he was resting he saw a strange shadow behind a tree. At first, he didn’t mind about it but suddenly more shadows started to appear around him. Every minute they got closer and closer. He started to run very quickly but the shadows were following him all the time. While he was running he fell into a hole and he cut his leg. He fell unconscious...

Finally, when he became conscious again, he was in the hospital and he sighed with relief but suddenly when he was looking through the window he saw the creepy shadow again!

Nobody knows if this guy was mad or he tells a truly spooky story...
