Rumpus Macavity was on a mission. Yes, he was. A mission he had set himself. For the past few days villagers had been coming out of the forest after their morning walk talking about strange happenings in the old abandoned house which stood a little walk away in a meadow. Many of the little children were scared to go near the place now, they said how it was probably haunted by ghosts. Rumpus wasn’t scared and had gotten sick of his little sister Skimble’s refusals to collect firewood from the surrounding area. So he had made it his mission to prove that the house was truly abandoned and did not house a ghost.
He reached the house after half an hour of walking. It had a blue roof and the windows and door were painted white. One window was open, a branch stretched inside, probably blown there by a storm. another branch lay on the porch and the area had patches of overgrown weeds. It looked a real mess. Rumpus shivered, not because he was afraid, but because the house gave him an uneasy feeling. It made him feel a bit sad.
Suddenly, he looked at the top window, was that a flash of movement?
He shook his head and looked again, nothing was there. “Now I am hallucinating from all those tales Skimble tells.” he thought.
Slowly he opened the door, it was unlocked and screeched and groaned loudly. “See, unlocked, if someone was there, they would lock it for sure.” Rumpus thought “Though ghosts wouldn’t look the door” he imagined Skimble saying. He took a deep breath and entered the interior of the house.
Inside it was very dusty and cobwebs hung in the corners and everywhere really. In the middle of the room stood a dusty table with two dusty benches, all laced with spider webs.
Rumpus walked over to the table and benches, they looked very much like the picnic tables and benches in the village except that they were probably much older, judging by the amount of dust on them. “See, there is no one here.” he thought and made to go to the door.
But, he had forgotten that he had his food against the leg of one of the benches so when he made to go forward he fell right on his face. “Ouch!” Rumpus muttered as he hit the floor with a would bang, sending the dust spiraling around him. Rubbing his nose with his left paw he turned rolled onto his back-

What do you guys think of the story? So far? It is a bit shorter than I originally imagined but oh well. I feel like I haven’t posted a story in ages *checks blog posts lists*, yes, it has been around a month and a half! What do you guys like to read? Stories, reviews, tutorials or something else? Anyway, I have been very busy with school work, we had a physics test two days ago and I had to study for that, I got 92% on that so I am happy. I am going to try to post for the whole year this year and not have a break like last year. That is my goal, to be able to fit school, friends, homework, relaxation time and SF into my day at least once a week. Who knows what is going to happen though! Well then, I wish you all a good day and week. Will post part two (Yes, I am organized, I have already photographed it already.) sometime soon, maybe in a weeks time?
Hugs, (And sorry for the large amount of writing at the bottom)
