‘The House Across The Lake’ By Josiah Hendricks Josiah

The lake was a peaceful place, with a small dock and a few boats bobbing in the water. But across the lake, something sinister lurked. There was a house, an old abandoned house, that seemed to have a dark presence about it. No one knew who lived there or why it was so quiet, but the locals knew to stay away. This is the story of the house across the lake, and the terror it brought to the small town.
