They were instantly petrified. Soon word began to spread and all the animals found out that there was a ghost which lived on the dark path in the forest.

One day, as seasons changed, a lot of animals had to migrate and had to go down the path where the ghost lived.
“Oh boy, oh boy, I hope the ghost isn’t around today” whispered one of them.
