We just moved into a new house. The landlord said that it was built in the early 1800. It's big, with an amazing interior design, and I'm so happy that we found this place.
It's our first night here, and I just realized that the house looked so scary at night.

I heard footsteps, but when I looked behind me I didn't find anything.
"John" I called to my husband
No answer.
"John, stop messing around" I said raising my voice
"boo" I turned around placing my hand on my heart
"stop doing that" I said playfully hitting him
"I was just teasing , love" he said and placed his arms around me in a hug
"I want to sleep" I yawned
He nodded and dragged me out of the kitchen and up the stairs.
I laid in bed for about 5 minutes, and then fell asleep in John's arms

I awoke in the middle of the night with a startle, as if I was awaken by someone.
I looked around, but there was no one other than John and I in the room.
I climbed down the bed, and stood at the window. There was two little girls in the backyard holding hands and looking up at the window I was standing at.

"play with us"

I blinked few times and they vanished.
I climbed back on the bed, and tried so hard to fall back asleep.

"play with us, Mommy"

I heard again
"John, John, John" I started to shake him
"what's wrong?" he asked groggily without opening his eyes
"do you hear anything?" I asked
"no. Why?" he lifted himself on his elbows and looked at me
"never mind. It must be my mind playing tricks on me" I laughed half heartedly
"go back to sleep. I wanna drink some water" I said and kissed him on the cheek

I got down the stairs, and into the kitchen . I filled the cup with water and I brought it up to my mouth to take a sip but a cry caught up in my throat and the cup slipped from my hands shattering on the floor.

There, in the backyard were the two girls with robes around their necks and were hanging from a tree.
I hurried up the stairs and purged into the bedroom.
"John, John, wakeup"
I pulled the blanket away from him, and I gasped
The blood was everywhere, and there he was lying with multiple stabbing wounds in his chest, and his eyes were pulled out of his skull.
"Oh God!" I scrambled on my feet and fell to the floor
Tears were falling down my face like a river.

"play with us Mommy"

"I'm not your mommy!" I screamed
I heard giggles and then the window was suddenly open
I got on my feet and ran down the stairs, and out of the house.
I started to run as fast as I can, as far as my feet would take me away from this house. But I didn't get too far, because I tripped and fell.
I twisted my ankle, and the pain was excruciating.
I stood up and tried to walk again, but when I looked up I saw the two girls infront of me.
they were replicas from each other. Blond hair, big grey eyes, and dressed in white dirty dresses.
"what do you want from me?" I asked them through my tears

"play with us, Mommy"

...........................................................
The police was around the house the next day.
"what happened?" one of the police officers asked
"a murder, I guess" the sheriff answered with a shrug
The paramedics were moving two bodies in a black bags from the house.
"wait" the sheriff ordered
He opened the bag, recognized them immediately.
"John and Camilla" he said in a small voice and looked down in sorrow
"did you know them, sheriff?" the paramedic wondered
"they're new, moved here about a week ago, and last night was their first night in this house.. they were a lovely couple" he answered
"what a shame"
"yeah, what a shame"
