Welcome to Ashgate

Please Subscribe to read further chapters


Byun Bora, a city nurse, had never imagined herself living in a small town like Ashgate, a town seven hours away from the city with a population of 900 people where everyone knows everyone.

The nurse who was hired before her stayed for only two weeks. Understandable. Small towns aren't for everyone. But when the town's new gossip surrounds an academy specializing in "reforming" students, Bora can't help to think that it may have something to do with Nurse Jane's disappearance.

Her life has always been boring up until now, and maybe... Just maybe, there is more to explore in a town like Ashgate.


"What are you working on?" Bora asked her brother through the phone, Baekhyun humming in response. Her brother was a journalist who explored topics that needed more than an open mind. 

"Just researching on a lead," Baekhyun replied. "There's this town called Ashgate that's in the middle of nowhere. There is this reform academy, yknow... An academy that disciplines troubled students? Anyway, OP said the kids that go into the academy come out as an entirely new person." 

"OP?" Bora asked.

"Orignal poster." Baekhyun paused. "I got the lead from reddit." 

"Baekhyun, is reddit even a reliable source? You know people just like to post eerie things on there."

"Most reliable information do not come from mainstream media, noona." 


"Welcome to Ashgate! Population: 920" 





Genre: Fantasy, Horror, Comedy, Romance (a tinge)

Character list: Byun Bora, Byun Baekhyun, Luhan, Kim Kai, Oh Sehun, Mark Lee, Matthew Lee, Lee Jeno, Na Jaemin, Shin Aera, Lee Jeno, Kim Bunny, Do Kyungsoo, Choi Siwon, etc. 

How this story came to be : We (@sorables and I) missed Bora so we started off with a fantasy brainstorming session that made no sense until we gave that up at midnight. By 2 am, we had half of this thought out so I just decided to give it a go. 

Note: Thank you for giving it a try!

Also --- Here's The Bracelet Club, a completed story of all of EXO and Bora

Chapter 10: I loved the end! Mathew and Bora made a lovely little family with the boys. Now, I am invested in what exactly that marble will turn out to be and how it involves Sehun. I’m hoping you will decide to write it at some point. In the meantime, I am getting ready to start your new story. I am also enjoying ‘I’m Here for You, Always,’ your plots are always so interesting.
Chapter 11: Would this really the last, or there will be another bonus chapter about what happened to Baek?
Chapter 11: Last chapter 🥹🥹

Chapter 11: T__T So its discontinued! Really! Thank you for giviing us such a good story but istg, whyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Elderwise sounds like sth i would read! Sending love. xoxox
Chapter 11: I’m mad this is discontinued because LJ is so funny. I like how his issues are about fitting in Aether and battling “complex” emotions regarding Bora. It’s so cute how he calls her “mum”! Matthew being salty is so funny, he now reminds me of The Bracelet Club the more dorky he is. Thank you for such a wonderful story, I hope Baekhyun is safe in Elderwise even if it’s something that we may not get to read.
Chapter 10: For sure, you won't ever disappoint with your fantasy themed stories. I would make all your stories into a movie/series if I'm a producer hahahhha.
Chapter 10: I'm so happy that L.J finally got a home! Ashgate was prolly the most traumatic for everyone D:D. Oh Sehun is a new character now? I dint expect anything more, but if there is, count me in! The twins are hilarious NanaxJaemin JenoxL.J. Why is Nana calling L.J babes? XD that is funny. This story was more serious than the rest bt you did the fantasy tag justice <3 feels so unfinished in a way :(
