Be our guest.......
Luigi felt a cruel chill swooping
by as he slowly made his way toward his new yet unpleasant mansion. The main
gate wasn't much better than the forest. As the blue flames flicked by the gentle wind,
they guided the route up to the "NOT- welcome" main door mattress.
Green mold that covered stone
plates with past stories dug into the front yard and Luigi froze for a second. Something
really awaking was going on.
" My eyes are not torturing
me! I could've sworn that, that thing had just moved! " He gripped his hands together,
tightly holding onto his flashlight. He could feel goose bumps rising above his skin. "I....I must be seeing things.. My mind's going crazy
on me. "
"I heard Mario's voice earlier,
so ought to be around here...."
Eventually, Luigi entered the
mansion and found himself, standing in the foyer. There were two stairways, one
on the left and the other on the right that lead up to another door. What was quite
notable were the many candle holders and the chandeliers that were hanging from the ceiling,
which tiny crystals rang at the slightest movement.
"M~~~a~~~r~~~i~~~o!!!! " exclaimed
Luigi. Nothing answered his call but the showering darkness of the main
hall. In front of him was a door tangled with unusually large white spider webs, which
silently flashed in a dripping wave.
" I wonder what that is, " he
slowly walked across the dusty floor and reached his arm toward the web to examine it,
but then pull back . "......better not get to close to that. "
A cold wind fought its way through
a slit in the main door carrying black crispy leaves into the hall in a rotating
circle. Apparently, the young plumber forgot to shut it. Just
then, Luigi felt the presence
of an individual behind him. His heart rate went up and the excitement took over him so
that he obediently spun a half circle and..
" A-H...AHHHHHHH! W----WH----WHA----WHAT
IS THAT!!!?!? " stuttered the now frightened hero. Out of nowhere,
appeared a puppet hanging in the air. The drumming thunder from outside rumbled
the sky, indicating an upcoming storm. The room flashed by light of the volts and the
shadows began to dance. In the marionette's hand tightly clutched, were a key and a piece
of demolished paper.
Luigi reluctantly took them
and read the message. It was impossible to understand its words, because most of the ink
and pieces were ripped or had faded through age. All he could figure out were the following
" Parlor--2nd floor--key "
" Must be referring to this.
" Luigi held up the key, concluding that it must've been for the Parlor located on the 2nd
He opened the door and entered
into the purple lighted room. Once again, triples of candle sticks were the only
lights. Luigi's body began to shake and to make things worse, the fun was just about to begin.....
The door of the parlor slammed shut! As it mystically sealing itself
with another pack of electrocuting spider webs, it automatically
sealed Luigi's attempt to escape along with it.
He was trapped! The victim was shocked by
the sudden action and tripped. He sat on the ground as he stared at the door in horror.
"This isn't normal! Doors like these don't
occlude with oversized spider webs nor do dolls start to emerge out of the air! " Yelled
Luigi through his mind. Cold sweat came flowing down his cheeks.
Then, Luigi heard un-earthy noises scribbling
and mischief laughter around the room. What made these noises was best to be left
unknown, but the writings that were left
behind were the things that bothered him the
Luigi's eyes widened in horror. On the wall,
were ghostly inscription tainted all over the furniture. Blood from the writing soaked the
soft floor with every heart beat passing by.
He dryly spoke each word he could read. But then his lips refused to give the message that came together from this trace.
" Whoever enters this mansion...... shall
be our eternal guest.
you to your new home.
And we hope that you endure the dark,
because they love the night....."
Suddenly, the walls began to speak on their
own with each phrase from a different voice.
"Every single one
that dared to come...." Luigi waited.
"Belong to us now....." His body flinched.
"And you are next......"
His breath became short.
"They are coming
after you...." Luigi turned.
"They will scare
you...." He looked around
"They will torture
you." He became lost.
"And they will kill
you..." He felt defenseless.
"Are you afraid, little man? Are you?
More and more dreaded words and voices emerged
at every side and corner of the four-walled room. Luigi couldn't control it anymore,
he was trembling like crazy, but the
agony went on....
"There's no way out...."
"No hiding and no escape...."
"You shall be our next piece to our collection!"
"Enjoy your stay, BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER
SEE THE LIGHT AGAIN!!!!!"
Along with a bolt of lighting striking the
clouds, stoke a fading orange phenomenon's structure of an abnormal creature.
If he would've lost, all that blood racing
through his veins, he would've passed out and never wake up.
"A.....??!!!" Luigi's scream replaced his
exclamation. "G---GHO----GHOST!!!!! "
"AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!" Shrieked Mario's
only brother as he ram through the Parlor door which apparently wasn't sealed
Luigi was on the ground. He forced himself
up and realized 3 orange ghosts with long fangs which longed for a drink of his fear.
They erratically flowed toward him and Luigi backed to the stair railing.
"Ge.--- Get away from me!!! " he whimpered.
He climbed onto the banister, and just before those greedy supernatural could touch
him, Luigi gave a push and slid down the wooden railing on his feet. One of the orange
ghosts attempted to grab him by his
overalls, but at a curve of the course, it
snatched the air instead.
Luigi flew off at the end of the ride and
landed once again on the cold floor on his back. His eyes were looking at the ceiling. He had
hit his head and for a brief moment, he felt shaky. But now, the chandelier came racing
down at him! With quick reflexes, Luigi rolled toward side where of the web coated
door from earlier, barely avoiding it.
The crystals of the chandeliers shattered
and pieces of glass lay across the whole foyer. His reflections rose along with him as he
caught up with his breathing and tried to ease down. His heart and nerves were extremely
By now, all three ghosts were floating above
him. Luigi could exactly phase their words through their wicked grin.
" We have you now......"
What happened in just 30 minutes, felt like
eternity. It was too much for him to handle. His fatigue overwhelmed him and his fate was
handed over to the supernatural.
He lost consciousness.......
Gahhhhhhh!!!!! I'm so tired from writing.
You probably realize now that this is quite different, huh? I hope, I'm not upsetting
someone. ^-^ Any comments? Please? But don't flame.... -_- ~Tina aka
