Unlike her sister, Annie, Sarah was intrepid. She looked forward to spending the night in the stone chamber. She’d heard so many interesting things about the mysterious structure. According to an article she read online, they were used for Viking dwellings, Celtic cathedrals, Indian burial tombs, runaway slave hideouts and witches’ hovels. It was the witches’ hovels part that made Annie too frightened to come anywhere near this chamber.
Sarah wasn’t afraid. Night soon fell. Within the stillness, she heard a strange, beautiful song, faint at first. Then it grew louder. Suddenly, she heard a cackle within before a black figure appeared.
