Truth or Dare ?

#MiracleChallenge : Week – 9

Challenge No : 1
Write a Short Story using prompt sentence –

Hello Everyone !

Today, I have come up with a short story. 

So, this is my 4th #MiracleChallenge entry for this week. Hope you like it.


Five teenage friends – Jen, Aria, Amy, David and William decided to have a get together after their exams; at David’s old mansion. They had travelled for four hours via road to reach the place. The view was very haunting like the one shown in movies, with dried leaves everywhere throughout the lawn.


There was an old man standing; who looked strange and creepy lot more than the mansion itself; at the entrance of the large gate. David introduced the man as his servant who has been working there for more than five decades in the mansion. He welcomed David & his friends and asked all to meet for the prepared and ready dinner.

After dinner, seeing the empty soda bottle, William’s idea lit brightly. He asked.” Hey guys ! What about Truth or Dare game ?”.

Chorously hands raised and girls were all in shouting,” We are all in.”

David was not okay with the idea because he feared about the consequences in this big old mansion.  “Truth or Dare ?” He asked. And continued, “No. You all requested to visit my mansion for a night. And, I agreed half mindedly without my father’s permission. Dad don’t know that we are here. It’s already complicated here. Let’s not complicate more. “. He begged.

“Blah blah. Okay. Cool. You don’t play. We allow you to watch.” Aria shuttered.

Amy prepared the questions and rolled the paper chits into the bowl. William kept the bottle in the middle of four.

“And the Truth or Dare begins now.”, shouted Jen.


Jen spinned the bottle faster and making a creepy voice; William asked, “Truth or Dare?”. Jen took a deep breath and said,“Dare”. The bottle slowed down its spinning to point at Amy. 

“Wow. This is going to be interesting.” retaliated Aria and taking the rolled paper she read. “Go out of this mansion and stand near the gate for good 5 minutes. No running. You need to walk slowly. No looking back. After we show the torch light, your time ends. Come back here. Again No running.”

“Omg. Daring? Really ? Ha ha ha.  I Accept. I can do this very easily.”, saying Amy stood up and asked smirkingly, “Can I start?”

“Great. Your time starts now.” William wished her followed by Aria and Jen.

“No. No. No. I don’t think this will end well. Stay inside for the night.”, begged David.

“David. Come on. Cheer up. I don’t see anything wrong here. I will be back soon.” affirmed Amy and started her daring act.

It was dark outside with No lights. Only light was of the Moon. And, it was a good 5 minutes walk from that room to the main gate. Amy started her walk with No fear. Within few seconds, noises and shadows appeared from Nowhere; and Amy lost her mind. She walked and opening the gate, she disappeared in the dark.

Others stood near the window ready with the torch and waited for Amy to reach the main gate. “Ah ! There she reached.” uttered Jen. The illusion of Amy was present in place of real Amy. After five minutes, Aria, turned the torch lights and waved it for Amy to look.

Amy returned back and muttered ,“I’M BACK.” giving David a big relief. And again the game continued with Ghostly Amy.
