The sun was setting behind the dark forests as Sarah stared out of her bedroom window, feeling restless. She had always felt a sense of adventure in her bones, but growing up in a small town with overprotective parents had never allowed her to explore that side of herself. That was until she stumbled upon an old map while cleaning out her late grandfather's attic, which led to an abandoned mansion deep in the woods.
The sun had long since set, leaving the world bathed in darkness. Streetlights flickered to life, casting hazy pools of light onto the empty sidewalks. For most people, this was a time to be home and safe, but not for her. She moved with purpose through the shadows, her gaze fixed on the brightly lit building ahead.
As the sun began to set over the small town of Millfield, Indiana, a group of teenagers gathered at the edge of a cornfield. They had heard rumors about an abandoned farmhouse that lay deep within the maze of stalks and were eager to explore it. The air was thick with anticipation and fear as they made their way through the rows, feeling as though something was watching them from between the leaves.
