As the sun set over the small town of Millfield, Ohio, sixteen-year-old Lily Jones sat on a bench in the park. She was lost in thought, staring intently at the silver locket she held in her hand. It had been given to her by her mother, who passed away when she was just six years old. Lily had always felt that there was something special about the locket - like it held some sort of secret message or hidden meaning.
As the sun set on a warm summer evening, the small town of Millfield buzzed with excitement for its annual fair. Families gathered in the streets as vendors set up their booths, all eager to enjoy the festivities that only came once a year. Among them was sixteen-year-old Lily, who had been looking forward to this day for weeks.
The sun was setting as Sarah stepped off the train and onto the platform. She had traveled over 300 miles to get here, to this tiny town in the middle of nowhere. It was a place she had never heard of before, but it held all of her family's secrets. Secrets that her grandmother took to her grave years ago.
The old abandoned mansion on the outskirts of town had always been a source of mystery and intrigue for the locals. Every Halloween, teenagers dared each other to venture inside its walls, but none ever had the courage to actually do it. That is until one fateful night when a group of five friends decided they would be the ones to finally uncover the secrets that lay hidden within those decaying walls. They never could have imagined what they were about to stumble upon or how it would change their lives forever.
