We all wish for the day when we would finally have our dream home. However, this man received a lot more than what he paid for his house! As he was exploring his new property, Christopher found something that would forever change his life for good! What could he possibly have found? Keep reading to find out!
House of His Dreams
Christopher began looking around his new property, curious as to what he could find just by looking around. He was unaware of what was waiting for him in the dark tunnel that he found out. Despite the warnings that were given to him by a police officer and a realtor, he still kept going.
After exploring and seeing all the proof that he was looking for, Christopher knew that the only choice he had was to abandon the place and never come back. What could he have possibly found during his exploring session is his brand-new home?
Wandering The Woodland
Christopher Wanliss bought a new property not so long ago. He was ecstatic to finally own a place that he can call as his own, resting on 40 acres of woodland fields. Unbeknownst to him, he was about to encounter a portal of some sort in the property that he now owns.
A Tour Of His Land
It seemed like this was what was in store for him. In that year, the seasons were harsh and had stripped away the outer layers of the trees in the area, which made the place look even more breathtaking, leading Christopher to go out and tour his property and its surrounding area.
Christopher was delighted with everything that he saw in his property, from the birds singing and chirping in the sky to the tranquility and peacefulness that the forest offers. It didn’t take long for his feet to suddenly wander on their own and have his mind and body set into auto-pilot mode. But suddenly, something caught his eyes.
Was It A Tree?
Christopher was still in a hazy area when he went to the direction of the object that had caught his attention. It seemed like it was hiding as it was small and rather dark, just trying not to be seen. What could it possibly be? Another tree? A smaller, darker, older tree than the rest?
The Mysterious Structure
Although this was what initially thought, he felt that his guesses were wrong as he moved closer to the object. He felt thrilled as well as a little bit of fear and excitement as he continued to inspect the mysterious object that caught his eyes. He then stumbled and fell down a 3-foot ditch!
Abandoned And Old
With leaves and dirt all over him, Christopher was perplexed with his fall. He shook it all off and looked at what was in front of him. He was dumbfounded with what he saw! With the way that his surroundings looked, it seemed like Christopher had discovered a mine right on his property! The place looked old and abandoned, regardless, he wanted to find out what secrets the structure held.
It was difficult to look inside of the mine as its outside was covered with moss-like material. He rushed home and took a flashlight with him so that he could see what may be hiding in the mine that he had just discovered. He was ecstatic on this journey!
A Ton Of Mines
Christopher recalled the moment it had happened and said: “When we bought the house, nobody ever told us about the fact that the estate had a lot of mines on it. We just sort of stumbled upon the gold mine one day and that was it. When I first saw it, I was so excited that I almost fell over myself. The only thing that I could think about was Indiana Jones and underground railroads.”
A Bad Decision
He had zero clues that this adventure would be the single worst decision he ever made. As soon as he got what he needed from his house, he went back to the entrance with his flashlight in hand. He noticed that he was holding his breath and was welcomed by some glitters on the walls. What would they possibly be?
The walls surrounding were all damp and seemed like they could crumble and break down at any moment. His footsteps echoed and can’t help but mind the dirt and soil that were pressing down on the tunnel. He packed three backup batteries for his flashlight as he wanted to stay a lot longer.
As he got closer to the walls, he couldn’t help but caress the sparkling material of the stones. He wondered, “What if this was gold?” However, he immediately forgot all about that when he saw something that would alter the course of his little adventure right away.
Cold And Damp Inside
The mine was cold and damp regardless of what the temperature outside was. Christopher quickly noticed the 4-inch indention in the soil caused by the footprints that he made. It was as if there was a source of water as there were fresh pools of water inside. He felt troubled as stagnant puddles in places like that could carry harmful gases.
The Sound Of An Echo
Christopher found it hard to tell where the tunnel would end even after he looked ahead as he pointed the flashlight straight forward. Christopher started to hear sounds echoing in the tunnel. He decided to follow where the noise came from as he was too curious to even stop, however, he did not know that this was the wrong thing to do.
No Light, No Warmth
Everything was completely still as he continued his way down the dark tunnel. There was barely any movement at all, not even of air, warmth, nor light. He held his flashlight tightly as if he were holding the hilt of a sword on the way to a battle. As he continued, the noises grew louder and louder. He can hear old metal parts and machinery somewhere down the path.
Christopher began hearing voices later on as well. He found it hard to understand what the voices were saying, but he decided to be brave enough and shout out, “Who’s there?” In which his only response was the echo of his voice. Regardless he was set on finding out who exactly was hiding in there.
Old Ventilation System
Christopher’s boots sunk deeper and deeper with every step he took as he was surrounded by nothing but dirt and water. He noticed a ventilation system that seemed like it was about to fall apart. He also saw chains that were hanging low as well. They were near each other, with each chain molding and rusting a lot more than the other.
He suddenly felt strange as he felt some sort of weird energy in the area. He felt something pulling him back, hinting that he wasn’t even supposed to be there in the first place. Regardless, continued to follow the water’s path to find its source. Perhaps he would find the sources of the voices there? Was someone living there?
Finally Some Light
Christopher was almost 150 feet inside the tunnel when he decided to look back and noticed some light by the entrance. Christopher said, “The ambient temperature also seemed to suddenly drop all around me at this point, and I felt an even stronger negative presence ahead in the tunnel”.
He was taken aback by what he was seeing when he looked back! His body suddenly reacted after being shocked and standing still for two seconds. He jolted, held onto the walls, feeling his claustrophobia grow stronger when suddenly, a chain started to swing.
Who Was There?
The chain wasn’t swinging lightly, it swung with strength! He knew that someone was there, watching him. His heart raced as he ran as fast as he could back to the entrance. He was well aware that he needed to escape and talk to someone about what he had found out. The question was, who could he possibly call regarding problems like this?
The First Call
Christopher made his way home filled with fear and covered in sweat. As soon as he got home, the first thing he did was grab his phone and called the realtor. He told the realtor about everything that happened, from the materials on the walls to the sounds and voices that he heard. The real estate agent told him that they would be sending someone to take a look at it.
Christopher said, “When we went to ask about the place, we were finally told that the estate had been home to quite a lot of mining sites. A lot of mining was done in these hills at the turn of the century, and there are a lot of little mines that are scattered across the hills.” Despite feeling a bit better of the call, he suddenly felt chills. “This cannot be happening!” he said.
Dropping Temperatures and Flickering Lights
Christopher had been standing in his kitchen when he finished the call, but suddenly, his lights began to flicker. He was once again filled with fear as he started to panic on the inside, but he tried to fight his panic but trying to slow down his rapid breathing. The flickering lights continued for a while before everything suddenly turned pitch black.
To The Thermostat
He immediately rushed to the main switch of the room and turned it off and then back on. Nothing happened. Christopher suddenly felt a chill that wasn’t there earlier. Out of nowhere, he felt a breeze hit his face. He quickly retrieved the flashlight from his pocket and turned it on to look at his thermostat.
Quite The Temperature Drop
With his breath forming a cloud in front of him, he noticed the temperature dropping drastically inside. He couldn’t help but wonder as to how strange the whole scenario was. He wanted the power to be back on, which is why he went to the circuit breaker. After all, this whole thing could probably just be a fuse that had blown out. But was it a problem with the fuse?
He noticed that there seems to be nothing wrong as he inspected the breaker with his flashlight. The main fuse looked perfectly fine and everything was in check. He kept on switching various switches on and off as he inspected the box. Which thankfully worked! He was relieved to find out that nothing sinister was causing things to happen.
The Doorbell Rang
Christopher kept reassuring himself by saying that it was nothing but simple faulty wiring, regardless, he still felt anxious. He decided to head upstairs to have a drink of water to calm down, but by the time he got there, his doorbell rang.
Meet Mr. Rudall
The man at the door was Mr. Rudall, he explained that he was the man that the real estate agent had sent because of Christopher’s call earlier. He was intrigued about the material that Christopher found in the tunnel, which is why he headed there as he wanted to see what the material might be.
The Calm Before The Storm
Christopher brought Rudall to the entrance of the mine and told him to be careful so that he wouldn’t be hurt as he went down there. As they strolled quietly through the woods, the sky darkened as if a storm was about to hit them.
They both took out their flashlights as soon as they got to the mine. The glare of the sparkling materials hit them in the face as they looked even more eye-catching this time. Rudall could no longer hold in his excitement as he walked up to the walls to have a better look. But as he looked back towards Christopher, it felt like the mine was conveying something to them. Rudall then told Christopher something troubling.
Rudall went on to tell Christopher that the mine was a gold mine created a long time ago. As Rudall stared at the walls, it was obvious that the gold wasn’t touched, and it was very evident the miners were not able to finish the job and were stranded in the mine instead. The question was, why?
Even though he wasn’t aware of any specific gold mines before this one, Rudall went ahead and explained the rumors regarding mining during the turn of the century. So why did the miners leave the mine with all the gold untouched? Nothing good came to mind, but Christopher wanted to learn of the truth as he was too curious.
Christopher mustered up his courage once more and went inside to investigate once again. He only had two things in mind. Either he would be able to find the gold, or the mine could very well be haunted. He prepared himself for this trip and entered with spare batteries and a flashlight. Darkness embraced him as he made his way inside again.
The Source Of The Water
Christopher was only able to make it 150 into the tunnel when he last went inside. But this time, he was firm in going in no matter what. He knew that the only way for him to learn the truth is by seeing it himself. After they reached about 600 feet into the tunnel, they finally found the source of the water. A door.
As water dripped onto his face, Christopher felt shivers down his spine, blurring his vision. He took a heavy, sharp breath, knocking on the door despite being aware that he would not receive an answer. He finally decided to open the door and got the surprise of a lifetime.
A Different World Altogether
The inside of the room seemed like a completely different world. The room was cold regardless of the weather outside. He felt the walls being colder and rougher than those outside when he touched them. His claustrophobia was kicking in, making him want to leave right away and head outside as his flashlight hit something that baffled him.
Something Was Going On
There were a lot of ruined objects crowded together, but none of it made any sense. Who in their right minds would decide to leave all of their belongings here? Christopher felt as if the air was pressing in on his chest as it got thicker. He was certain that something strange was going on there, he just didn’t know what it was.
Living Down There
Christopher noticed a bedspring that was all rusty and broken when he inspected the pile. For him, it was all that he needed to see. Someone surely lived there, and it doesn’t look like they are in a hurry to move elsewhere. He also couldn’t shake off a certain thought in his head when something else caught his attention.
He found a brick hideaway, which certainly did nothing to comfort him. No one would need a hideaway door inside a mine underground unless they were trying their best to hide something of value. Curious once more, Christopher went to the hole and saw nothing there, but as he was about to turn around, he noticed something else on the walls.
A Brick Hideout
He saw some white scratches on the walls when he shined his flashlight on the bricks. He found what was written there to be hard to understand until he moved closer and got a better look. On the wall, he saw four vertical lines, which is a bit odd, to say the least.
He inspected the lines which turned out to be scratched. As he ran his hands over them, he felt like the scratches were made with fingers, since they were a bit superficial but deep enough to mark the cement. Who was it that wanted to escape the place? As he thought about this, he saw another thing that would later show up in his nightmares. What could he have possibly seen?
Writing On The Wall
Christopher found a lot more scratches that weren’t just lines on the wall from the opposite side. He decided to document the writing that he couldn’t understand. He took out his camera and took a picture of it. Maybe he would be able to use his computer to learn more about this later on.
Chills Went Through His Body
He suddenly heard something that gave chills running down his entire body. Someone else was in there with him. In an attempt to see the source of the sound, he pointed his flashlight towards the direction of the sound but saw nothing. He turned back and kept inspecting the writing on the wall until he heard metal clashing and felt a cold breeze on his shoulder.
The chills made him feel as if he had gone through a cold shower. It seemed like something was coming from behind him, then from the front! He wasn’t able to tell anymore. Christopher ran for his life as it gradually became louder, surrounding him in all directions.
Running For His Life
Christopher ran as fast as he could as he felt chills running down his spine. The only thing going on in his mind is that he feels that something was very wrong with the place. His mind told him to stay still, but his body dragged him to the entrance of the mine. By the time he got out, he clutched his chest and collapsed.
So Right, It Was Wrong
An untouched gold mine? He should have realized that it was too good to be true. There was probably a good reason as to why the gold mine was left as it is. Christopher caught his breath, calmed down, and headed home.
Like A Madman
Everything around him was so tranquil, it was as if the air was absorbing all the sound of his footsteps. The trees weren’t rustling, as if they were aware of how tense the situation was. He started to run once more, he wanted to find out what was going on as fast as possible.
Help From Google
As he got back inside his home, he immediately went to his room and shut himself inside. He was aware that strange things are happening in the mine, and he needed answers. Desperate to have an answer, he went to the internet for help.
