  1. My friends and I went to the little house in the woods at night one night to see what would happen. My friend who was driving thought it would be funny to back up instead and roll down the window (i was sitting at the window seat). We honked three times just like we heard we were suppose to do to see mary’s ghost and got quiet. All of a sudden we hear rustling and twigs breaking. We dipped!
