How did they know it was haunted?
    Because they said so. Everyone knew it.
    It had been there for close on to one hundred years and everybody said that while it wasn’t haunted during the day, a
...t nighttime strange things happened there.
    It seemed a perfectly logical place for the boys to run, Doug leading them and Tom bringing up the rear, carrying their wild treasure, the chess pieces.
    It was a grand place to hide because no one – except for a pack of wild boys – would dare come to a haunted house, even if it was full daytime.
    The storm still raged and if anyone had looked close at the haunted house, chanced walking through the creaky old doors, down the musty old hallways, up even creakier old stairs, they would have found an attic full of old chairs, smelling of ancient bamboo furniture polish and full of boys with fresh faces who had climbed up in the downfall sounds of the storm, accompanied by intermittent cracks of lightning and thunderclaps of applause, the storm taking delight in its ability to make them climb faster and laugh louder as they leapt and settled, one by one, Indian style, in a circle on the floor.
