HAUNTED HOUSE - Mr Y and Ms V
It's starting to get dark and the cold night air is creeping around you.
You look down at the invitation to check the address.
There is a house to the right and one to the left.
hmmm, which is Dr. Viiiii's?
Let's try right.
You walk up the path to the dark, dark, dark house.
When you get to the front door you search for a doorbell.
None to be found. However, a gong and mallet hang nearby.
Give it a gong.
You know you want to.
After gonging once, twice, maybe thrice...
The door opens to a beautiful but rather pale looking young lady.
A tall dark handsome man suddenly appears.
With sparkly white teeth and a flash of...
was that a fang?
Come in, dear guest.
Would you like refreshment?
He holds a decanter of red liquid.
Papa? Did she just say...
He looks as young as her.
They speak in lowered voices.
The subtlety is not lost on you.
What do you do?
