‘Sandra, where are you going?’ Millie asked out of breath and five steps behind her twin.
‘Here,’ she called back.
Up ahead of them was the old barn their parents said they could never go into, but Sandra was a daredevil. She just had to go where she’d been told she couldn’t. Millie was more than a little frightened, she knew what went bump in the night, and their parents never told them why they couldn’t go into the barn. It’d also been at the centre of every horror story Sandra ever told.
‘Come on,’ Sandra called, ‘we can go inside for a look and be home before dark.’

‘They said we couldn’t go inside,’ Sandra said coming to stop a few feet from the barn doors, ‘they never said we shouldn’t.’
Millie was still running and didn’t see Sandra come to a stop. She ran straight into her and they tumbled to the ground. Sandra broke into fits of laughter making Millie laugh too. They lay on the ground with their arms folded under their heads staring up the old barn.
‘I don’t want to go in there,’ Millie said.

‘But what if there’s ghosts… or wild animals?’
‘Yes, what if there are ghosts,’ Sandra said, ‘wouldn’t that be wonderful?’
