In her Contest X Stage I submission, Huvika talks about a visit to a forest wrapped in the blanket of the night, a decaying mansion and a forgotten shadow.

The Eerie Visit

The Scary Visit

The cold autumn wind whispered warnings in her ear. Leaves crunched beneath her feet as she trudged through the forest, memories churned in her head, taunting her. She wrapped her threadbare cloak around her and walked down the path she had taken a million times before.

The rusting iron gate greeted her, looming in the pale moonlight. It creaked in protest as she pushed it open in haste, eager to visit them. She was met with a desolate sight. The once majestic mansion was in a state of decay. The garden was overgrown with weeds, an air of loneliness surrounded the moss-covered stone paths. She steeled her nerves and walked to the front door.

She knew there would be no answer, but she still knocked. The forest seemed to be holding its breath. Nothing rustled, nothing moved. The silence was sinister, encompassing her, weighing down on her. She turned the handle, wanting to demand explanations from the dusty interiors. The cobwebs that hung from the ceiling gazed balefully at her; the peeling paintings that adorned the yellowed walls murmured their condolences. Taking a deep breath, she turned from the foyer and set off for the gate. Guilt curdled in her stomach as she walked through the forest, away from the mansion. She should have stayed, shouldn’t have been so selfish.

A shadow, a phantom of the past, moved in the depths of the ruins. It raised a hand in farewell, placing it on the cold glass of the foggy window. The mansion let out a sigh as moonlight entered through the open door. The shadow darted out of the house into the grounds. It didn’t look back.
