Halloween! 2013. 5

31st October 2013 19:20 Hours

According to my mobile phone, it was 7pm when I found the door!

I’ve been knee-deep in water for two hours in a dark and spooky room, with nothing else noteworthy apart from an alcove in a wall and the door. Oh, and the odd noises.

I’m now standing mid-thigh-deep in the water, as there’s a step down to the door that I discovered entirely by chance! I’ve also discovered that if I’d have approached the door from the other side, there are three small steps that lead down, but I discovered the higher drop. Luckily, I kept my balance as I stepped off the floor and plummeted (shall we say!) the short distance.

The chattering noise went away about five minutes ago, but it was coming from the other side of the door. Logic is telling me to go immediately back to the manky rope ladder and leave the room that way, through the window, but a little nagging voice is telling me to look beyond the door.

I’ve decided to follow the advice of that little voice – I am exploring this place after all! I’ve found the doorknob, waist height. It’s a little stiff, but it turns. I’ve tried pushing and pulling the door, but as yet, it won’t open. I’m thinking the water is keeping it tight, but I have to get through this door!

I’m going to spend some time now seeing if I can get this open, so I’ll end this update here, and I’ll write more soon!

    It’s still early where I’m from. Has the Halloween party started? In any case, I brought garlic. Actually, I ate it on the way over, but I still have a Halloween treat for everybody (who loves the smell of garlic) – my garlic breath. Step right up and take a whiff, I won’t bite (yet)!

      I did notice a strong garlic smell, CM. It never occurred to me that it was coming from you!

    Ohhhh yeah! You sure do need to get through that door! Pronto! Have you seen what I’ve just seen creeping up behind you?…No! I didn’t think so! Oh well…good luck! And you do realise after all that time in that questionable water you will at the very least have turned all wrinkly and watery lol and that’s best case scenario! Now please take care…plummeting round like that will land you in very ghoulish water before you’ve finished lol…never mind the alcove or the chattering…that’s what you get in abandoned ghostly asylum’s lol I’m guessing that has something to do with the hauntedness of this unearthly part of the Mansion you’re plummeting around! lol 😀 😉

      Icewolf, I had a feeling there was a presence. I couldn’t see anything, with it being pitch black and all. I could see the shadows though. And the wall, when I was up to it.
