The Seven Chairs The fifth one ended up in France Bella Hibl There were only seven nuns in this big church, and two priests. Only on occasion did someone show up. It was far out in the country where no one lived, because of the incident. Someone said in the early 1900s there was a big fire. Everything was destroyed except for the seven chairs. People say that they are cursed. I agree. The name’s Dereck Smithwell. I was born three miles away from that church, in 1936. It was a small town and a small church. Two years later there was the fire incident. No one knows how it started, but I do. Seventy five years later they rebuilt that church. Now it’s big. They thought that lots of people would come and help rebuild the city. But they were wrong. Only on occasion did someone show up. One day several people came to that church. First time in years. They were wealthy and the son was the world news reporter. They did not come to see the church. They came to see what happened after the fire, but there was nothing to see. So they went to the nun and asked what happened. The nun responded, ”We don’t know, there was no one here when we came. We just heard that it was a great place for a church. But no one came and now we are old.” The priest asked if they wanted to stay for the mass, but they just wanted a story. They stayed for mass but when it ended they sat in the seven chairs. The one nun who they came to, felt sick. She went to go to the bathroom, but she couldn’t get up from the chair. She tried and tried but she couldn’t! Then she started to float in the air! Everyone was screaming. The reporter’s family were on their phones and calling every one they knew. When they got off their phones she was gone. They searched the big church, but she was not there. The reporter said with enthusiasm, “This is going to be great news story!” While the nuns and priests were praying, the reporters left. The next day reporters around the world showed up to see the chairs. But no one dared to sit in them. There was already news around the world, but no one believed it. Until in Germany the nun reappeared. She was traumatized and did not know what to do. While at the church, the chairs started to move on their own. Something or someone was moving them. Everybody was very excited and at the same time scared. No one was there when the second one disappeared. Everybody looked for it but again no one could find it. The chairs vanished one by one. The fifth one ended up in France. Everybody was looking for a way to make it stop. But no one could. EPILOGE No one was hurt but most were traumatized. Dereck Smithwell died 4 months before the fire. He is the one who started it and he is the one who haunted the chairs. He never stopped haunting the chairs, but now they are being investigated in a place where they cannot leave.
