The phone call- By Neon Aegina C2 Ellie Skouteri


Somewhere in Turkey, in an old village, there was a woman who lived there. She didn't have a family and she wasn't rich. However, she was happy.

One night, she woke up. She decided to drink some water, although she wasn't thirsty. Suddenly, the phone started ringing.Wondering who it could be at this time of night, she looked at the number. It was 000. She picked it up. "You are not here" said a voice. The woman, frightened, dropped the phone and it broke.

She wasn't sure what that meant, and she went to check if the door was locked. Suddenly, the voice started repeating itself: "You are not here." Louder and louder. The woman thought she had gone mad. she started screaming loudly. 

And then, someone knocked on the door. The woman tried to see who was on the door through the keyhole, but a hand didn't let her.

The woman heard some noises, a voice of a girl saying: Why did you knock? This house has been abandoned for years…". And a man saying: "I know. A woman died here. But then, who turned the light on?

Written with blood and imagination…
