The Sallie House – level 2

06-12-2022 15:00

In the 1870s, a doctor lived in a small brick house in Kansas, US.

One night, a woman came to the house with her small daughter. The girl was very sick, and she died during a surgery. Since that time, strange things started to happen in the house. People believed that the house was haunted.

In 1993, a young couple moved in the house with a baby, and the situation got much worse. Things moved on their own, pictures on the wall turned upside down, and at night, the young people heard someone walking around the house. They got really scared, and they called a paranormal investigator.

The man and his team used a special gadget, and he said that he could communicate with Sally’s ghost. Even he could not tell exactly what was happening in the house.

Difficult words: haunted (a building or other place where a ghost appears), paranormal investigator (a person who goes to a house, and he checks some unusual activities which happen there), gadget (a device).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
