Everyone in the village was afraid of that mosquito. But there was a person who could not feel the bite of that mosquito. It was Max. The villagers asked Max to kill the mosquito. As his mom was busy in some other work, he slipped out quietly to save the villagers.
On his way, he met a dwarf who stuck his leg under a rock. Max was a kind boy and he immediately helped him. He kicked the rock with all his strength and freed his leg. The dwarf thanked Max and to show his gratitude, he decided to accompany Max till the haunted castle.
That night, Max found the castle and managed to hid himself inside the castle. Suddenly, late at the night, he heard strange noises. The castle was surrounded by ghosts.
