Mystery / Horror

On my way to the shrine

Ever since i was child i have heard stories told by my Grandmother about how things were during war time and how hard life got after food started running out and choices that people had to do in order to survive.

Now days it would be unheard off to make such choices even if things were tough. She told me that when soldiers were coming closer and closer of the village she used to live people were already almost dead due to starvation and illnesses. They had to make hard choice off what to do with small kids.

Soldiers were said to be specially cruel against kids and women so leaving them on the mercy of soldiers was not an option and running with them would but all the towns people in risk.

My grandmother always had tears in her eyes when she told me about the shrine were the parents took the kids for prayer and after it threw them down from the mountain where the shrine was .

To them it was more merciful to do that than to leave the kids they could not take with them and leave them to be tortured .

She never told any details about the shrine. Only small things what i had to put together if i wanted to find the shire. Finding it was never in my mind not before my grandmother passed away and i found her diary and old photo album .

After going through those memory filled items i decided to go there. It was my way of respecting my grandmother. Drive there was long , several hours and the fact that i did not have total knowledge of the place where the shrine was made it more difficult.

After sunset i arrived there after asking several people on the way and hours of lonely driving i finally stood on the top of the mountain stairs where the shrine was located.

At one point i felt i should abandon my idea of going there after one of the people i encountered on my way said to me " there are many unhappy spirits there, why you people always have to go there and disturb them? However if you choose to go can i give you one advice?"

I looked at the old woman and nodded " when you go there never turn around and never look over your shoulder" I was about to ask question from that old lady but when i was about to i saw her almost running away from me .

Now that i am already here so i might as well go through with this .

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...
