Kemper Academy is over a hundred years old, but it has only recently reopened after a series of murders and stories of hauntings shut it down. Avlynn, a new student, refuses to let the rumors scare her, chalking them up to a bit of friendly freshman hazing. But when night falls and screams draw her from her room, she finds the truth is much more horrifying than any ghost story.


“Supposedly, the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead is at its thinnest on Halloween.” The flashlight’s beam cast an eerie glow on Daeva’s face. “This gives all the restless ghosts a chance to”—she paused dramatically—“get their revenge!” Her voice rose with the last word, tugging gasps from her audience. “I know almost everyone here is a freshman, so you’ve probably never heard of the ghost that haunts our school.”

After allowing a silence to settle, she went on: “Well, Kemper Academy reopened five years ago, after being forced to shut down in the early 1900s because of the murders. They found the bodies in a room on the third floor.” She paused, twisting the ball of her foot against the hard-packed ground. “Isn’t that where the new freshmen dorms are?”

I knew she was trying to get to us, and it was working. I’d always believed in ghosts, but I refused to let her know just how deeply she was affecting me. I wouldn’t let her have any power over me. After all, that’s all the seniors wanted: control over the freshmen.

“One day, the headmistress poisoned the food supply. Those who had gone to bed without supper were killed—one by one—when she stalked from room to room, knocking on doors. No one suspected the nun who ran the school would be the very person to lock out…” Everyone gasped in shock this time, me included. As people squished even closer together, the seniors chuckled.

“After the murders, she went up to the top floor of the observatory tower and jumped…to her death.”

In the corner of my eye, I saw someone rustling within the bushes. I knew what was coming next, so I braced myself for it.
