Anderson was at home watching TV. Suddenly, the news came on.
“Breaking news!” exclaimed the news reporter. “Five more people are missing in the local ‘haunted’ mansion on the west of Lolo Island. People say it’s a ghost capturing them.”
People keep trying to tear down the old mansion to make way for new apartments but progress is slow because people have been scared by the ghost.”
Quickly, Anderson called his friend, Conrad.
“Hey, Conrad, have you seen the news? Are you ready for a ghost adventure?” asked Anderson excitedly.
“Ready!” Conrad replied.
“Meet me at midnight,” Anderson said.
Anderson met Conrad and they started walking towards the haunted house.
It was on top of a tall hill and looked derelict. The wood was rotten and all the windows were broken and foggy.
Anderson and Conrad shivered. They opened the creaky door and walked inside the pitch-black room. They turned on their torches and went up the dusty staircase.
Anderson saw some old photographs on the desk.
“Hey Conrad, look at these pictures. The date says 1932,” said Anderson. In the pictures, there was a man standing in front of the haunted mansion, but it didn’t look haunted in the photo, it looked brand new!
“And these are from 1985,” said Conrad picking up more photos.
“Who’s the man in the picture and what happened to this house?” whispered Anderson.
Suddenly, Conrad saw a flash of white. “Over there!” Conrad shouted, “The ghost!”
Anderson and Conrad tried to shine their light on the ghost but it was too fast!
Anderson tried again and this time he noticed something.
“Wait a minute,” Anderson said. “That’s not a ghost!”
Quick as a flash, he ran towards the ghost and pulled down the white blanket.
It was the old man from the picture!
“Ahh!” he screamed.
“Call the police!” yelled Anderson.
Conrad called the police and they arrived immediately. The police arrested the old man and found all the missing people in the basement!
“Why did you capture all these people?” the police demanded.
“This is my house and it was the first building on Lolo Island,” sobbed the old man.
“It’s part of Lolo Island’s history and contains many memories not only for me but also this beautiful island … but now, people keep knocking on my door asking if they can knock it down and build new apartments.”
“You can’t kidnap people because of that,” Anderson said
“I know,” the old man said sadly, “but I thought if I let them go more people would come. If I pretended to be a ghost, people would be afraid and they’d leave. But you’re right, what I did was wrong. I’m sorry.”
The police were touched by his story.
But justice needed to be served.
“We have a department called the Lolo Island History Preservation Department. As punishment, you must work to preserve Lolo Island’s history. As for the house, we won’t allow anyone to destroy it as its part of Lolo Island.”
“Thanks!” the old man cheered.
He worked for the Lolo Island History Preservation Department.
His house was turned into a tourist attraction and tourists even took photos with it. At the end of the day, Anderson, Conrad, the old man and all the citizens had a new-found appreciation for the history of Lolo Island.
