Imagine yourself sitting in the courtyard of a house. No, not here, not here at all. In a place where you are surrounded by old, crumbling buildings.
the trees growing in the walls of that house softly swaying in the river breeze.
the only light that you have, no sorry, the two sources of light are the lights of the stars, there is no moon in the sky, the sky is pitch dark like black velvet. There is no sign of that yellowish glow that you see in city skies even when your own block is without electricity supply. Absolutely black sky!
the other source is a lantern with dirty glass, because you dont know how to clean a lantern.
There are only four of you. You and your hosts.
Now is the time for a ghost story. Right?
