A woman and her family had recently relocated to this old house. It was in desperate need of repair, and the rotting floor was at the top of the priority list.
However, when she lifted the carpet, she discovered a hatch with a large hole.
And when she discovered what was going on beneath her house’s floor… she sobbed!
Sarah (31) was enthralled by the prospect of renovating historic properties and restoring them to their former beauty. She also made a few dollars from her hobbies.
It was, in a nutshell, a win-win situation. However, she was so taken aback when she saw this antique property on the internet that she decided to renovate it for herself.
She expected to be working on it for around three months before being able to move in. Regrettably, the remodeling did not turn out as she had hoped…
Sarah couldn’t believe her luck when the real estate agent told her she was the highest bidder for this unique home. This house has everything she had wished for since she was a child.
She went to the notary, beaming, and signed the contract of sale. She was congratulated on her purchase by the notary, who then handed her the keys.
Then it was time to get to work on the renovations. Sarah wanted to get started straight immediately because there was still a lot to do.
Sarah, on the other hand, uncovered something she’d never seen before when she broke through an ancient wall…
Sarah was always up for a large job, such as renovating this lovely old property. She wanted to restore the house to its original state, so she demolished the walls that had been added a few years before.
She walked to the basement with her tools in her hand. She tapped the new walls to see what kind of material they were. Walls made of plaster. They were simple to dismantle.
She took out her sledgehammer and began pounding on one of the walls, cheerfully. It didn’t take long for the wall to fall down and the house’s terrible secret to be revealed…
Sarah coughed and waved the dust and grit away from her face, coughing and hacking. The wall had disintegrated and produced a massive cloud of dust after a few hard strokes with the hammer.
Sarah, on the other hand, noticed something odd after the dust had cleared. She removed her work glasses and walked across the plaster wall remnants, which was odd.
A complete room had been hidden behind the wall. However, upon closer inspection of the space, she discovered something far more intriguing: the hatch…
Sarah yanked the hatch handle, her nerves frayed. What’s the story behind this hatch?
It had been years since the old hatch had been opened, and it was quite tight. It was a difficult chore to open it.
Sarah was able to get it open after a few minutes of wringing and pulling. The hatch slowly opened with a dreadful cracking…
Sarah covered her mouth with her hand as she saw what was under the hatch. The secret hatch appeared to lead to a corridor. She had not anticipated this.
Sarah, as daring as she was, didn’t let anything bring her down. She slung a large rope around her waist and hung it on a hook high above the ground.
She lowered herself into the hole behind the hatch with a rope around her waist. But what she discovered there terrified her to death…
Sarah noticed she had wound up in a hallway that ran beneath the home when she turned on her flashlight.
She moved down the corridor with the rope that would take her back to the surface still around her waist. However, the corridor began to break into other ones.
There appeared to be a maze beneath the house. But what was the purpose of this maze?
Sarah took a stroll down the corridors, her curiosity piqued. She had grown so engrossed in her discoveries, however, that she had failed to realize that the rope around her waist had come loose.
Until she heard a spine-chilling scream echoing along the corridors…
Sarah was terrified and really wanted to return to the surface. However, when she looked down, she noticed that there was no rope around her waist to guide her back to the house.
She hurried down the corridors in a panic, looking for the escape. The network, on the other hand, appeared to go on forever.
Sarah, terrified, requested assistance. It was completely silent for a little moment. Then, out of nowhere, she heard a voice coming from one of the hallway’s chambers…
“Who are you?” a small voice said. Sarah tried everything she could to obey the voice. She wound up in a room illuminated by a few ancient candles after initiating a discussion.
And as she peered down, she realized where the voice was coming from: a young, scruffy-looking girl of around six years old, suspiciously peering up at her.
Sarah shined the spotlight at the room, startled. Then she noticed it.
A complete family resided in the old, wet room…
They informed her that they were in the nation illegally and that they would be unable to return home.
They had taken refuge in the old house when they discovered it. They hid in the hallways beneath the house when they learned the house had been sold.
Their young daughter had discovered the corridors behind a hidden door and informed her parents. They admitted that it wasn’t ideal, but it was better than where they had come from.
Sarah decided to assist the family after hearing about it. She got them both a green card and hired the father as a handyman. The family was subsequently able to afford to rent a cottage on their own, and Sarah was really thankful for the assistance.
Despite their unexpected encounter, Sarah and the family maintained a close bond.
