The Headless Ghost

3 ThrillsDuane and Stephanie are the twin terrors of Wheeler Falls at night. During the day they are just Duane and Stephanie, friends, neighbors, and normal twelve year olds. But at night they sneak out of their houses and scare people. One day Stephanie got bored and had an idea, a dangerous idea that involved the haunted house on Hill Street. A long time ago there was a sea captain who built the house for his bride. Just as he finished it he was called out to sea. His wife waited and waited, but he died at sea. His ghost haunted the house, calling "Annabel" (his wife's name) over and over. But Annabel didn't answer because she had left the house when she heard he had died. The sea captain haunted an empty house for years, then a family moved in. The family had a mean son named Andrew who was always causing problems. One day he went into a room he hadn't seen before and he saw the ghost. The ghost told him that now that Andrew had seen him that he would have to die, and he broke off Andrew's head and hid it in the house. The sea captain's ghost disappeared and Andrew's ghost appeared. Andrew's ghost was searching for his head. Stephanie wanted to go to the house to find Andrew's head. Duane and Stephanie always go on the tours that are given at the house and know the stories by heart, but this time they're not taking a tour. They didn't really expect to find it, but they were bored. And they certainly were surprised to find The Headless Ghost.
