Lost in the Woods: Two Ghost Stories

The One Without a Face by Liam Gizster Let me tell you a story… A story of fear, ghosts, and the cold hand of death… A story of consequences, and the horror that lies for those who don’t obey… A story of the darkness of the wilderness…   So grab a seat and gather round… And know… Never do what Jack did… Lest your soul be trapped forever… Our story begins on a cold day of winter, 1773, in the U.S.A. Jack loved to explore. A bit too much. He lived in a single log cabin with his mother and father in the woods. They had left England to colonize the New Land. His parents had always told him not to go out at night. But Jack didn’t listen.
