Flashback: Ashmore Estates

Click here to download the entire issue!

The Fallen spilled into a wide corridor that looked like it had been created out of some of the original rooms by way of knocking down the walls. A maze of heavy, black folding screens and black curtains filled the area. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Emmer said, giving Mike the evil eye. “You told me this was going to be easy.”

Mike grinned. “This is the fun part,” he said. Suddenly, the cackle of a maniacal clown filled the air—deflating his smile. “Not that fun,” he frowned.

“I hate clowns,” Davin said with a shudder.

Mike motioned to Aurelia and she instantly understood. She moved quickly to find the exit to the maze, while the other four entered it.

Inside the walls of the maze, vision was reduced to just a few inches. The only light came from the open window at the end of the hallway, and it barely peaked over the top of the black folding screens. Despite its confined area—or perhaps because of it—navigating the maze proved frustratingly difficult. Mike, Greg, Davin, and Emmer groped the walls and bumped into each other. More than once, they thought they caught someone, only to discover that it was one of their friends.

  1. Ashmore Estates is one of the darkest places I have ever been in. As soon as you enter the building you get a feeling of dread. I am glad that the Ghost Adventures crew went out and did an episode. This is truly one of the most haunted places I have ever set foot in.
