Plopp family and the haunted cabin

The Plopp family went on a cabin trip during the summer vacation.

They rented a cozy cabin and looked forward to a few days of fresh air and cozy evenings by the fireplace.

But the first night they heard strange noises. Then something very odd happened: The door to the bedroom opened by itself, and a tall, gray figure entered the room. Then it disappeared.

They were a little scared, but thought that it was the wind that had opened the door. And the figure was probably a shadow. The tree that stood right outside, perhaps? What else could it be? None of them believed in ghosts.

The next day they went for a walk in the area and did other pleasant things. They completely forgot about the mysterious figure they had seen the night before. They didn't think about it at all.

But in the middle of the night, they heard strange noises again. The Plopp family woke up. They sat up and held their breath. Was that the sound of a door? And someone walking across the floor? Was  someone banging on the wall? Was someone singing?

What on earth was going on?

Suddenly the figure appeared again.

It stood in the middle of the floor. It was a real ghost! The family was terrified and decided to go home as soon as they woke up the next morning.

They went back to bed, but they slept poorly for the rest of the night. The whole family lay awake waiting for morning to come. They couldn't sleep. They couldn't sleep. It was simply impossible.

Finally, it began to get light outside, and they could go home.

They got dressed and packed their belongings in a hurry.

They walked towards the door, but they couldn't open it! The door to the cabin was locked, and they couldn't find the key. They tried to open the large kitchen window instead, but that didn't work either. The mother checked her phone. She wanted to call for help, but she had no coverage.

 - What on earth are we going to do? said Papa Plopp desperately.

 - I have no idea! replied Mama Plopp as she tried to come up with something clever.

 - Let's make some breakfast while we think, suggested Papa Plopp.

But as they entered the kitchen, the power went out. It became completely dark inside the small cabin. They realized they were trapped in the cabin with a real ghost. They couldn't believe it.

They didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

They sat on the sofa and waited. They thought someone would surely pass by eventually.

After a while, they suddenly found the key in the bathroom. It was hanging on the mirror!

They took the key and unlocked the door. Finally, they could go home.

They jumped into the car and drove off as fast as they could.

When they got home, they told an old man in the village about their trip. He laughed and said that the cabin had belonged to his grandfather. The ghost they had seen was him.

He used to lock people inside the cabin to tease them.

The Plopp family laughed and realized they had been tricked.
