While exploring the mansion, Gracey and Emily separate as Gravey finds a hidden room containing a mysterious artifact that seems to pulse with an otherworldly energy.

Whatever was behind them has dissipated in the wind. Emily felt an eerie presence and turns to see nothing but a must of swirling dust dancing through the ray of the flashlight.

Gracey grabs Emily’s hand and move forward as they continue to explore, the creepy atmosphere starts to get to them.

The red door seems to become distant from where they stand. Stretching further like an elastic rubberband.

"I don’t like this, Gracey. Let’s get out of here," Emily says, her voice trembling.

"Just a little farther," Gracey replies, her curiosity getting the better of her.

As they move toward the door, they hear a strange noise.

"What was that?" Emily asks, her eyes wide with fear.

"I don't know, but I think we should split up and search for a way out," Gracey suggests, her heart racing.

"Are you crazy? I'm not leaving your side!" Emily protests.
