A Ghost Story

Extracts from this document...


A Ghost Story 21st March 2005 It was a dark evening and I had just finished school. It was 3:30 and my mum's car had broken down in a country lane about seven miles away down the twisty lanes.

I found it embarrassing when my friends come around my house to sleep and that when we went to bed they heard strange noises, which was the ghost and my friends kept asking me what the noise was and I had to pretend that I couldn't hear it as I didn't want my friends to find out my house was haunted as they would probably never come round again.
