I love the way your writing builds up here, each sentence is like a layer of a pass the parcel being unwrapped. You have made some super word choices too. Keep up the super work.

Great accurate writing Demiyah. I especially like your use of short sentences to help create the fear. Well done.
Your tension-filled story builds as we read. Gnarled old trees, creaking doors, a scream (yours), creaking floorboards and a pitch-black hallway set the frightening scene as your creepy adventure unfolds. Well done.
In particular, your sentence, “Millie hissed to me to be quiet”, shared not only your fear but the tension in Millie. Millie might be more resilient in this situation but, clearly, is also very tense. “Hissed” is much more powerful in this situation than “whispered” or “said”.
With your growing skills as a writer, I hope you can keep entering the 100WC.
