    Rakesh and I had planned to take a small trip to the hills near our town. I woke up early morning and was excited to go to the hills. But I woke up so early that it was still dark. It was very borring because everybody was sleeping and I couldn't do anything. Then after some hours my mother and father woke up. And after sometime I called Rakesh. Then we went to the hills. We climbed for an hour but still we had just climbed only three-fourth of the hills. Then we rested in a place. We ate some snacks and played some mind games. After some minutes, Rakesh remmbered an important and scary thing! 

    At the top of the hills lived some ghosts! He was sure that the story about the ghosts was real. I thought he was just scaring me. But, after a while, he told me that the ghosts could also come down to where we were resting. So he decided to go back and advised me too to go home. I started wondering if he was saying the truth. But then I also decided to go back home.

    When we were returning to our homes, suddenly it started to rain, so we started running. A few yards away, suddenly a mansion appeared in front of us. We thought of taking shelter there untill the rain stopped. We knocked on the door two or three times but nobody opened the door. So I tried to push the door and it opened by the push. ''Hello, is anybody here?", we both said together. But nobody answered us. Then the door closed on its own. We were very frightened. There was a phone on a table nearby. After sometime it started ringing. Rakesh attended the phone. A voice said, ''Hello Rakesh. Is that you? If it is you then there would be Suraj with you too.'' ''Yes mummy, it is me and Suraj is also here with me.'' Rakesh said. Rakesh gave me the phone ''Hello Aunty. Can you come to the hills to pick us up? We are stuck in a mansion. It is very scary mansion.'' The voice from the phone started cracking.

    Then after a while our parents came into the mansion by just opening the door as we did. We went back home.

But!!! Wait!!!

After reaching home I realised that the phone was not connected to its wire.

The next day there was no mansion on the hills!!!
