“Emilie! The well is empty. I’m going to town to get some water. I’ll be back in about 2 hours.” That’s the disadvantage of living in this gloomy and isolated mansion; I'm here all alone with my father. I miss my mother. She disappeared 2 years ago. She had a good life in spite of her erratic behavior over a two-month period. Deep down , I still feel her protective presence. This makes me think about Diddy, my little dog; I haven't seen him for a week now.
Having nothing to do, I decided to fix the well. What was wrong with it, by the way? On my way to the well, I noticed how dark it was outside. It made me feel as if I was in one of those horror movies where zombies climb out of the well. Whatever… I took an oil lamp from the shed and made my way down the well. It was kinda humid in there. As I went down deeper, I noticed the ladder didn't look right; some of the rungs were broken. "Don’t slip", I thought to myself. "Just don’t slip.
Upon reaching the bottom, I was surprised to find a narrow underground tunnel. Creeping along, I went through it. It was really a long tunnel, but I finally saw the light at its end. A putrid smell pervaded throughout. Putting my light in front of me, I discovered bones… but not just a few bones… there were… bunches of bones! The part of the tunnel I was in branched out in several directions.
Suddenly, a noise behind me caught my attention. As I turned around, I saw a shadow. In the meantime, a bark echoed from the opposite direction. Before I could see where it came from, the lamp went out. It had run out of oil. It was one hour since I had left the house. But how did Diddy get down here? "How are you doing, Diddy?" He licked my hand. Whatever... I had a more important issue. I had to leave this well right now.
All of a sudden, a light appeared which seemed to come from nowhere. I had no other choice but to follow it. I saw the silhouette of a strange shape on the ground. As I got nearer, I could make out the carcass of a dog. Diddy! But then who had licked my hand a little while ago? From this moment on, everything went fast… too fast. In the distance, I could hear the sound of rushing water; and before I realized what was happening, I was carried away. I was about to drown when a strange thing happened. I felt this protective presence. It was then I saw her!
Whatever est très populaire chez les jeunes et les jeunes femmes américaines. La trad correcte c'est comme tu voudras.
