The Ghoul of Darkington Hall

A myth submitted to the site by Riyah Khursheed

Merville , England

In a forest near Merville there was a cottage in which there lived a 10 year old boy called Arimman and his grandfather. His grandfather told Arimman a different story of the forest each night before going to bed.

One dark windy night whilst his grandfather was sleeping in bed Arimman went to discover the ghoul of Darkington hall (a story which his beloved grandfather had told him the night before). As he stepped outside he could see something lurking behind a tree. It was a fox,who was trying to catch his prey! Arimman ran through the forest in fear of the fox.Eventually when he stopped running he realised that he had approached his destination.

The crooked gates creaked open as Arimman slowly entered the fearful hall. He entered to see that in front of him stood the facinating ghoul of Darkington. Arimman carefully stepped backwards in fear whilst the ghoul stepped forward. As quick as a flash the ghoul sucked out Arimmans soul and put his own into the empty body. Arimman was DEAD! When the ghoul returned back to the cottage he spent one year as Arimman before killing the grandad on Christmas night. They were never heard of AGAIN!
