Roger and Liza were visiting an amusement park with their parents. One of the things they really wanted to do was to visit the Ghost house! Their dad was telling a lot of ghost stories during the weekends, so they both thought it would be really fun to explore a real one.

To show how brave they were, they went into the ghost house with their parents waiting outside. Once inside, they heard a strange noise behind them. They turned around and saw a ghost girl!

"You two are brave to come here alone!" said the ghost. "I think you two will make good friends for me."

"What do you mean?" Liza asked, "What do you want?"

"I want to know why you want us to be your friends," asked Roger.

"I don't think that's such a good idea," said the ghost, "as it's going to be really scary!"

"We're brave!", replied Liza.

"Well, okay then," agreed the ghost, "follow me ".

Roger and Liza went inside the Ghost house with the ghost girl, and she started telling her story. "I had a sister. She was very nice and I liked her, but she died before we both turned 8 years old."

"That's so sad!" said Liza.

"I know. Since then, I had nobody to play with."

The three of them continued walking around until they came to a room with a big mirror on one wall. In front of the mirror was a table. On it stood an old book and some candles with different colors and sizes. The candle closest to the book seemed to be burning brighter than all the others, so Roger walked up to it and took it off the table.

Then he turned around and walked back towards Liza and the ghost girl. Suddenly, Roger and Liza started moving their hands like they were playing an invisible piano. Then, Roger saw that music notes were coming out of nowhere! He could see them floating through the air! They looked like butterflies made out of paper!

"Do you like my magic?" The ghost girl asked smiling.

The next thing Roger knew, he was standing in front of an old castle, which had vines crawling up all over its walls, and ivy growing on top of its roof! There was also a big tree in front of it, with leaves as green as emeralds!

When he looked down, he saw that Liza was standing next to him, holding his hand while staring at him with her big round eyes opened wide! She seemed very surprised too because she couldn't believe what she was seeing.

Roger was breathing in the lovely scents coming from the flowers growing everywhere! Only then, did he realize that music notes were still floating through the air making everything look even more magical.

"Wow!! It's like we're walking through an invisible orchestra playing for us. We can not only hear, but also see these notes float across our path! This is amazing!", exclaimed Roger.

"Where are we?" Liza asked.

"I'm not sure, but it is beautiful here."

"It is! But I'm really hungry."

"Me too," replied Roger, "Let's go inside and find something to eat."

They went inside the castle and found a big kitchen with some delicious treats! They ate everything in the kitchen! But when they were done, they couldn't find their way out of the castle.

At this moment, they found they were back to the ghost girl, who was still standing in front of that mirror.

When she saw them back, she asked, "So what did you think about my place? Did you like my magic? Did you like my piano too?"

"I liked everything!" Roger and Liza both said at once.

"Alright then, I take that you guys have agreed to be my friends and stay here with me forever!"

"But our parents are waiting for us!" said Liza.

"If you are my friends, you will need to stay here". The face of the ghost turned dark.

"Run, Liza!", shouted Roger and he started running.

The ghost girl started chasing after Roger. Liza started running too, scared to see what would happen next!!!

Roger and Liza were running away from the ghost girl but she kept chasing after them. She was laughing all the time while waving her hand to them. Suddenly, an old abandoned house appeared in front of Roger and Liza. It had broken windows and a door made out of wood. Roger and Liza ran inside, finding themselves in a big hall with old paintings, antique furniture pieces, and a big chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

Roger looked up at that chandelier, just in time to see the ghost girl catching up with them! They were now running through an old corridor, where everything was covered in dust! They could barely breathe because there was so much dust everywhere around them! They saw something moving in front of them through this fog, so they slowed down hoping it would go away. But it didn't, instead, it got bigger until finally, they saw what it was. A big rat!!

"Oh no!" Liza screamed.

"Run!" Roger screamed too as loud as he could!

They ran through another corridor until they came across some stairs leading up to another floor. They ran up those stairs as fast as they could, hoping the ghost girl wouldn't catch up with them! But when they got to the top, instead of finding another hallway, all they saw was a dead end!

There was nothing else, except two big windows looking out onto an empty field, where there wasn't even one tree or bush growing from its ground!

"Let's go back down!" Roger said turning around, but when he turned around, he saw the ghost girl standing right in front of him, blocking their way back downstairs!

"I'm sorry, " she said, "but I can't let you leave until you become my friends."

"No way!" Roger said, trying to run past her, but she grabbed him by his collar and pulled him towards her, making him scream.

Liza screamed too, because she felt so terrible seeing her brother being treated like this by this little monster of a ghost!!

"Alright, alright, we will be your friends!", said Liza, "but please let us go back to our parents. They must be really worried."

"We promise to come back!", continued Liza.

The ghost girl thought for a while, "Ok, but only if both of you promise to come back here tomorrow night. "

"You mean we're going to come back here again?" Liza asked.

"Yes." The ghost said smiling at her. "If you guys don't come back here, something really bad will happen to your parents.

"What will happen to our parents?", asked Roger.

"You will know the answer tomorrow night!". The ghost then disappeared, with her voice lingering in the air.
罗杰和丽莎和他们的父母一起去游乐园玩儿。他们特别想去参观鬼屋!他们的父亲会在周末讲很多鬼故事,所以他们都想见识一下真正的鬼屋是什么样子!

为了展示他们有多勇敢,他们让父母在外面等着,自己进去探索。他们刚一进去,就听到身后传来奇怪的声音。他们一转身,就看到了一个女幽灵!

"你们两个自己来,还真是胆子大啊!我想你们两个会成为我的好朋友的"。

"你什么意思?"丽莎问道, "你想要什么?"

"你为什么希望我们成为你的朋友",罗杰问道。

"我怕你们会被吓坏!。"

"我们很勇敢的!"

"那好吧,跟我来。"

罗杰和丽莎跟着幽灵走了进去。"我曾经有一个姐姐 ,她人很好,我很喜欢她,但她在我们都未满 8 岁之前就去世了。"

"那太令人伤心了!"

"我知道。从那以后,就没人和我玩了。"

三人继续往前走,来到了一间墙上挂着大镜子的房间。镜子前是一张桌子。上面放着一本旧书和一些不同颜色和大小的蜡烛。离书最近的那支蜡烛似乎比其它蜡烛燃烧得更明亮。罗杰走到它跟前,把它从桌子上拿了下来。

然后他转过身,朝着丽莎和幽灵走去。突然,罗杰和丽莎开始像弹无形的钢琴一样移动他们的双手。然后音符就不知从哪儿冒出来了!罗杰可以看到它们漂浮在空中,像纸做的蝴蝶!

"你们喜欢我的魔法吗?" 幽灵笑着问道。

等罗杰再次回过神来,他发现自己站在一座古老的城堡前。这座城堡的墙壁上爬满了藤蔓,屋顶上长着常春藤! 前面还有一棵大树,叶子绿如翡翠!

罗杰低头一看,只见丽莎站在他身边,拉着他的手,圆圆的眼睛瞪着他! 她似乎也很惊讶,不敢相信自己所看到的。

罗杰呼吸着随处可见的花朵散发出的美妙香气! 直到这时他才意识到,音符还在空中飘荡,让一切都显得更加神奇。

"这就像在为我们演奏的无形管弦乐队中穿行。 我们不仅可以听到,还可以看到这些音符飘在空气中! 这太棒了!",罗杰惊叹道。

"我们这是在哪儿?"

"我不确定,但这里真的很漂亮。"

"是好看!可是我饿了。"

"我也是,我们进去找点吃的吧。"

他们走进城堡,发现了一个大厨房,里面有很多美味的食物! 他们把厨房里的东西都吃了! 但是吃完后,他们发现他们找不到离开城堡的路了。

突然,他们又回到了那个幽灵面前,她还站在镜子前。

看到他们回来了,她问道:"你们觉得我家怎么样?你们喜欢我的魔法吗?你们也喜欢我的钢琴吗?"

"我们都喜欢!"罗杰和丽莎两人同时说道。

"那好,那就是说你们已经同意做我的朋友了,永远和我呆在这里!"

"但是我们的父母在等我们!"

"是我的朋友就必须呆在这里!", 幽灵的脸色开始变得很不好看。

"快跑丽莎!"罗杰边说边跑。

幽灵朝罗杰追去。丽莎也开始跑了,不知道接下来会发生什么!!!

罗杰和丽莎试图逃离幽灵的掌控,但她一直追着他们不放,还一直笑着向他们挥手。突然,一栋废弃的旧房子出现在罗杰和丽莎的面前。它的窗户破了,门是木头做的。罗杰和丽莎跑了进去,发现自己在一个大厅里,大厅里摆满了旧画和古董家具,天花板上还悬挂着一个大吊灯。

罗杰抬头瞧了瞧那盏吊灯,正好看到幽灵追上来了!他们现在跑在一条破旧的走廊里,到处都是灰尘!他们几乎无法呼吸。他们看到前方有什么东西在移动,于是放慢了速度,希望它会消失。但它并没有,相反的,它变得越来越大。直到最后,他们终于看清楚了。是一只大老鼠!!

"天哪!"丽莎尖叫起来。

"快跑!"罗杰也叫了起来!

他们跑着穿过另一条走廊,直到看到通向另一层楼的楼梯。他们以最快的速度跑上楼梯,希望幽灵不要追上他们!但是当他们到达顶部时,他们并没有找到另一条走廊,而是看到了一条死路!除了两扇大窗户外,没有别的东西。从窗户望出去可以看到一片空旷的田野,地上连一棵树或灌木丛都没有!

"我们回去!"罗杰说着要转身。可是当他一回头,就看到站在他们面前的幽灵已经挡住了他们下楼的路!

"对不起,但在你们成为我的朋友之前,我不能让你们离开。"

"决不!"罗杰说着,想从她身边跑过去,但她一把抓住他的衣领,把他拉向自己,罗杰叫了起来。

丽莎也尖叫了起来,因为看到自己的哥哥被这个幽灵这样对待,她的心好痛!!

"好吧好吧,我们做你的朋友吧。 但请让我们回到我们的父母身边。他们一定很担心。"

"我们保证会回来!",丽莎继续说道。

幽灵想了想,"好吧,但前提是你们俩答应明天晚上再来这里。 "

"你的意思是我们明天要再回到这里?"

"是的。"幽灵坏坏的一笑。 "如果你们不回来,你们的父母就要遭殃了。"

"我们的父母会怎样?"。

"明晚你们就知道答案了!"。说完,幽灵就消失了。只剩下她的声音,还在空气中回荡。
