During the wedding reception of a young couple, the guests decided to play a drunken game of hide and seek. It was decided that the groom was "it" and he eventually found everyone except his new bride.
The longer he searched the more frusturated he became and he was soon furious thinking she had left. He decided the game wasn't funny anymore and went home without his bride. As weeks went by, he accepted that she'd had second thoughts and went on with her life so he did the same.
A few years later a cleaning lady dusted off an old trunk in the attic of the building where the reception had taken place, out of curiosity she opened it.
Inside the trunk was the rotted body of the missing bride who'd apparently became locked in the trunk she'd chosen to hide in. Whether she'd suffocated or starved was unknown, but her face was frozen in a scream.
That story was in a book. I have read it before. Very good story though.
What a stupid-ass game to play at a wedding reception. Couldn't the original fabricator have come up with a better backstory? Like some chick in a big, expensive wedding dress is gonna squish herself into a trunk for funzies. As if.....
Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along. Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?
I've heard of it before. There is an old manor house in England that's haunted. Unfortunately I can't recall the name. I know it's not Moreton Corbett,which has a different ghost story to it. I think the name of this manor house starts with an "F" and has been mentioned in books. A young bride of one of the heirs to the manor during the wedding celebration with some other people went and played hide and seek.She climbed into a large chest and closed the lid. Unfortunately the tongue which fit over the loop to which you could attach a padlock of some sort,prevented her from opening the chest,in any case,for some reason she couldn't open it. They searched everywhere for her,but no one found her,till many years later. It's said she haunts the ruins of this manor house. You might want to Google the bride in the chest,and this manor house 's name may come up.This english manor house is a real place,so there maybe some truth to it.Some of these old stories like that of the ghost of Marion Le Bruyere at I think Rochester Castle invovle real people who actually lived.That's like lady Lily Lumley at Lumley Castle. She was a member of the Lollards,they were a group who were considered heretics by the Catholic Church,much as the Cathars were.Some monks from a nearby abbey or priory came one day when her husband Sir Ralph Lumley was away to see her.They tried to get her to convert back to the Catholic faith.When she refused, they murdered her.
When her husband returned and found out what happend, he had these monks killed. Both Lady Lumley and the monks haunt the castle. The Lollards were a real group,whether you could consider them an early form of protestant I'm not sure.The only medieval hersey that still exists today are the Waldesians,from their founder,Peter Waldo. You can find them on Google too.
