    The darkness loomed overhead, and the beginning of a thunderstorm dripped down the back of my neck. Absentmindedly pawing at goosebumps, I looked up at the rundown shack of a house and wondered what it once had been. At its prime, the house might have been warm and inviting, hosting grand dinner parties and many a family gathering, but through years of disrepair and longer years of abandonment, the majestic house had reduced to a  mold-ridden, asbestos-filled hut with boarded windows.
    It had been six months since the move, and I strolled by the house without issue until Mom pointed it out to me. While it was intensely risky to go near it, I was drawn to the exotic beast of a house by energies I still can't explain.
