An Old Strange House

Saimon, Bappi, Ripa and Runa are four cousins live in a town with their parents. They never went to the village. One day they wanted to go to one of their relative's house in the village. So, they went with their uncle to his father in law's house. They reached there after a long journey. They were too tired for this reason they went to bed early by taking their meal. Next day they met with the people of their uncle's father in law's house. They stayed there for about one week. One day they went with one of the relatives to visit an old land lord's house near by the village.
They went there at the time of dusk. They were observing the house and the surrounding places very keenly. They could not realize that the sun had set already. There was no house near that old house. It was covered with heathers and herbs. There was no electricity but they met one man who told that he had been looking after that house for a long time. They heard many things about the house from the man. The man told them many strange events with this house but these persons did not believe the stories.
Suddenly the sky became cloudy and rain started. So, they could not return home in time. Saimon wanted to drink water and told the man to bring water for him. The man went but he did not come back. These young boys and girls fell in trouble in this dark place. Saimon heard a strange noise of a cat nearby. He went forward and saw a shadow of a black man. He thought that there was someone else so he called him but he did not respond.  A cold wind blew over his shoulder. He felt something awkward and got frightened. He shouted but nobody could hear it. He saw a big red eyed man was approaching towards him.  This person struck him on the head and bit on the throat, killed him and soaked his blood. The rest of the persons saw that Saimon was not over there. They started to look after him here and there. Bappi had a gas lighter. He lit it and saw that the bloody body of Saimon fell there. He screamed and fell senseless.
Runa met the man at a place who went to bring water and asked him about Saimon but he did not say anything in reply and looked at him strangely. She got scared and saw that the figure of that man was changing into bloody and horrific. He came to her and caught hold of her throat. She tried to shout for help but failed to do it. He killed her and sucked her blood. Ripa and her relative saw that they had come to a place where there was no way to go forward so they came back. They felt someone was following them. They became scared and began to run and saw Bappi falling senseless near Saimon's dead body. They shook him and made him awake. They rushed towards their house in the gloom and darkness. At last they reached home and told everything to his uncle what happened with them in that old strange house.
After that night they came to that old house to take the dead bodies but they became strange seeing that there was nothing left in the spot except the house. The house was looking normal as usual. So with sorrowful and dejected mind they came back home.
