Ghost stories [CLOSED]
Sector oo4 had always been one of the more unique locations within Hive City. In fact, many would say that it held an air of mystique about it. It was place where people, lands and even worlds came together. From massive skyscrapers, to old cottages, to native american settlements and beyond. There were aspects that many would recognize and many more that were entirely foreign to them. This also made it the ideal location for stories when it came to locations that seemed either too strange or mysterious.
Some joked about abandoned shrines which held ghosts within. Something which the populace seemed to have become all too desensitized to. After all, this city was teeming with oddities who walked the streets on a daily basis. And the sector itself once found itself home to werewolves. The presence of a ghost hardly seemed frightening. Perhaps that was why a group of teens sought to set foot within one of these shrines. An old and withered Japanese styled establishment that had been all but silent since the city’s inception.
It was supposed to be a fun little distraction. And even if a ghost were to appear, it would be an exciting moment at most. How could any of them had known what would transpire within those darkened walls. The scene came to the attention of one of the local news station hours later. Two of the tree youths that had entered rushed to police, horrified and frantic at the disappearance of one of their third companion. And while the officers were prepared to search for the shrine for the missing girl, the other two prevented them from entering. Mad ranting of evil and demons spewing from their mouths. Horrific cries. Dead eyes. A crying friend being dragged off into the darkness by an invisible force.. and then silence. They remained in their frightened state no matter how much police attempted to calm them down.
Until the girl re-appeared. Simply having stepped out of the shrine, seemingly no worse for wear. The situation was soon regarded as nothing more than a prank. An act set up by the teens for exposure. And while the two friends remained baffled by what had transpired, the girl reassured them that all was well. Everyone dispersed from the scene. All three teens returned to their homes. And yet, the two could not help but question why their third friend struggled to recall their names. And why she bore the stench of rotted flesh.
