The Glass House - Personal Story - Public

Post by AliceBaudelaire on Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:02 pm

A young girl who's family is well known around the country strives to achieve their dreams by moving into a new house, one that was made by a famous architect who was known for their out of the usual means for building. The family enjoys the first few months in their new home, but soon after things begin to change for them. Each member experiencing their own encounter with evil while in the home, they come to find that escaping is not something that they will be able to do easily.

The Father:
Name:

Coen Brice Waverly

Age:

Thirty-Five || January 15th || Capricorn

Appearance:


Personality:

Coen is the type of man who is strong and dependable, who fights for what he wants and works hard to give his family what they need. He doesn't like to back down from a challenge, even when it could be harmful to him and those around him. This is usually what gets him into trouble with his wife, but he does his best to make up for the bad things he does. He is a man who will own up to the things he has said or done, and takes full responsibility for them even when he really doesn't need to. Although sometimes Coen can let outside influences persuade him into doing wrong, and most of the time he doesn't have the strength in his will to fight against the temptation.

After having kids, Coen grew up drastically and became the man Darcy always knew he could be, despite the fact he had no support other than her. At first glance, people would suspect that Coen was a well-behaved man who never indulged in bad food or drink, but instead was a devote follower of religion and a crafty businessman. Only half of those things are true, Coen being quite the sly man but still having a criminal air about himself.


History:

Coen comes from your typical seventies parents, having taught him how to take care of himself. He had six brothers and three sisters growing up, which caused his parents to have some financial struggles. Coen was responsible for most of the family's income, since he was the second oldest who had stayed home with the rest of the family. His teenage years were devoted to his siblings and their needs, never really having time for himself or to do what he wanted to do. Coen came from a small town where his family was pretty well known, which wasn't a good things since all seven boys seemed to have a knack for getting into fights.

During his high school years, he met his high school sweetheart, Darcy, and married her right out of school. After having their first daughter, Ramsey, Coen knew that he was going to have to work even harder to keep them all afloat. His siblings spread across the states, while he and Darcy settled in one place and that was his home town. As more of his children came, Coen realized that the small home town was not enough for them and decided that it was time to leave. Stumbling upon an ad in the paper, Coen found the perfect place for his family to grow.

The Mother:
Name:

Darcy Elora Waverly

Age:

Thirty-Four || September 4th || Virgo

Appearance:


Personality:

Darcy is what people would call the perfect saleswoman, but not so much the perfect mother according to her children. Having always had a "go get 'em" attitude seemed to work well for Darcy until she married her husband. As a child, Darcy was always trying to achieve the next big goal or to do better than another student in her class, having fought her way to the top and did not want to lose what she had gained. Most people look at Darcy and think that she could probably spend a little more time at with her family and not so much with her friends, out shopping and spending money on things that she or the family didn't really need.

Her teenage years were the defining years for Darcy, having always felt the need to be on top. Darcy didn't seem to care who she hurt as she rose to fame in her small town, having made plenty of enemies among the girls in her school. This didn't seem to phase Darcy none, for she somehow managed to always come out on top. Being head cheerleader, prom queen, spoiled by her parents, Darcy had it all. And there was no way she was going to limit her personal fame to a small town, going as far as to uproot her family and move to a bigger city. Darcy doesn't seem to notice that she does things solely thinking about her own benefit, but her family seems to love her regardless of that.


History:

Darcy came from a rather nice middle class family, one that lived in an upscale neighborhood and had wonderful neighbors. Darcy was rather popular in her small town, since her family was so well liked. Having two older sisters helped Darcy in school, making her one of the most popular girls in school. She was voted prom queen in high school and went on to marry her high school sweetheart, Coen Waverly. The two were considered the most perfect couple in town, and soon went on to have four children together. Darcy's older sister, Maggie, passed away a couple years after Darcy gave birth to Kamren, the family attending her funeral and reuniting with the rest of the family.

When learning that her husband was going into a midlife crisis from living in a small town so long, she encouraged that the family move into a bigger home in a different state. Darcy having worked from home as a sales rep knew that she could make much more business in a larger town, finding a rather nice house that was right within their budget. Moving in as quickly as possible, Darcy knew she would have to shoulder the attitudes from her children and the constant nagging of her husband.

Extra:

~The thing the scares her the most is not being able to move in her sleep, fearing that she could be cut in half or other things while not being able to move.

The Oldest:
Name:

Ramsey Teegan Waverly

Age:

Eighteen || June 15th || Gemini

Appearance:


Personality:

Ramsey is a strong willed and open minded girl who speaks how she feels, and doesn't really care how it will make others feel. When she has a problem with something, she doesn't have a problem with letting someone know how she feels about what's happening. But, that doesn't mean that Ramsey goes looking for trouble, since she is actually the quite opposite. In school, Ramsey was the opposite of her mother and tended to stay to herself more, which made an impact on the people around her and she became the topic of gossip. Being the strong girl she is, it didn't seem to bother her as much as it did her mother. Ramsey wouldn't admit it, but she would rather be unpopular and hang out with the nerds than be prom queen like her mother wanted her to be.

When it comes to her brothers and sister, Ramsey is the perfect protector and guardian and knows just what to do when something is wrong. Having to learn how to care for her siblings at a young age, Ramsey soon became more of a motherly figure to the three rather than their actual mother. Ramsey is not the type of woman to gloat or show off what she has done, and never really got into cheer leading like her mother before her. Instead, reading good books and spending time on the computer was more her style, something her father could understand more than her mother. Ramsey didn't let this get her down and did her best to make her mother proud anyways, something that always seemed to backfire against her.


History:

Ramsey grew up in her parent's home town, where she was very well known and very well liked. As a child, Ramsey was a favorite of the locals at the senior home and often was asked to help out, something her mother allowed her to do on the weekends. Ramsey was a year old when her brother, Kamren, was born and grew up being very close with him. Her sense as a big sister increased when her second brother, Haiden, was born, but by now she had desperately wanted a little sister. Her wish was granted when she was eleven, her mother giving birth to Kinsley after having a lot of complications with her. Ramsey was very close to her siblings, defending them every time they needed her too and taking care of them when her mother was away.

When her parents decided to move from their small town, Ramsey was very upset about losing all of her friends and leaving behind her childhood home. She felt as though her parents had betrayed her and decided that they didn't care what her and her siblings thought, but didn't want to be left behind and make her brothers and sister face the new town alone. Coming with the family in their move, Ramsey kept a watchful eye on her family as they moved into a home that didn't sit right with her. After arriving, Ramsey became worried about the people in their neighborhood, all of them acting as if they were scared of the house Ramsey's family was moving into.

~There is a slight lisp when Ramsey speaks, but it can only be heard when she is super upset or really angry.

The Middle Child:
Name:

Kamren Hendrix Waverly

Age:

Seventeen || August 29th || Virgo

Appearance:


Personality:

Kamren is much like his older sister in the fact that he is rather reserved, having never really been on to reach out to the popular crowd. But, that didn't mean that people didn't know him as a kind hearted boy who was always up for helping those around him who were in need, something that his father didn't exactly approve of in the beginning until Kamren started getting paid. Kamren never had a problem doing his fair share of work around the house without being told, the one thing his father actually praised him for. Despite his father's constant nagging and his mother's absence, Kamren was a rather upbeat and positive boy.

Even after the move, Kamren still felt the same way he had before. His father still treated him unkindly and he was still trying to win his father over, even when Ramsey said he should just focus on himself. Seeing the new house they were moving into made Kamren feel like things were really going to change for him, since girls seemed to like boys who had nicer houses back in his hometown. Kamren is the type of guy who cares about his image around others, wanting to be considered as a nice guy that cane be depended on. He feels as though its something his father never had, and he wants to be nothing like his father at all.


History:

Kamren had a slightly different life than his older sister, Ramsey, always being at the end of his father's anger. He was the one that was often cleaning the house after the others, or the one who got yelled at the most when someone did something wrong. Since he was the first son, it didn't matter what the others did for he was responsible. Kamren knew that he would have to grow up and be responsible at some point, and began to lose sight of the things he once enjoyed. His school life was also the opposite of his mother's, people picking on him as much as they did his sister, Ramsey. He did his best to be the older brother than he was to Haiden and Kinsley, but had problems with his father no matter how good of a job he did.

Once he found out that the family was moving, Kamren had a feeling that it would be his best chance at starting over. The thought of going into a big city excited him and made him believe that anything could be possible with so many people around, something his hometown seemed to lack badly. With the hope of becoming a better person, Kamren decided that he was going to make the best of this move to a new city. Although his father was continuing to be mean and hateful towards him, Kamren found himself learning new ways to make his father smile or have normal conversation. Asking for help from his mother didn't seem to help, but that didn't mean that Kamren was going to give up on earning his father's respect.

Extra:

~Kamren has a deep resentment for his father, and had an incident when he was ten years old where he held a knife to his sleeping father's throat.
~He hates all family holidays, and often runs away for the day until he came come home when it's over.
~Out of all the things that Kamren likes to do, he has the most fun when it comes to messing around with girls in public places.

The Third Born:
Name:

Haiden Gaige Waverly

Age:

Twelve || November 13th || Scorpio

Appearance:


Personality:

Haiden is a rather dark and brooding child who does not have a sense of humor, but seems to be the favorite child of Coen's which is a terrible thing to be able to say. Haiden showed signs of anti-socialism at an early age, and was requested to be seen by a professional who could chart where the boy's mind was at most of the time. Having no sense of wonder or adventure in his body, Haiden is really only understood by his siblings who know that he's just different compared to other kids his age.

After the move, Haiden did not change much other than the fact that he seemed more paranoid and on edge, something that his siblings thought was very strange for the boy. Having the feeling that he was constantly being watched in the house caused him to feel uncomfortable about having his own room, Coen wanting to make him happy by giving and Kamren rooms that were connected through a very small hallway. Haiden was never afraid of being alone in the dark in his hometown, but once he moved into the new house he refused to sleep without the room being lit enough to see the whole thing. This worried his father and siblings, but there was nothing that they knew how to do that could possibly help how Haiden felt about the new house.


History:

Haiden is the third born child and second son to Coen and Darcy, and is the apple of his father's eye. He would be considered as the spoiled child in the family, the one who receives the most attention from the parents. As a young child, Haiden grew up having much of his father's love, yet was still cared for by his two older siblings, Ramsey and Kamren. Having a rather creepy demeanor led the town to believe that Haiden was a little disturbed, but this only angered Coen and made him want to leave the small town more.

Haiden didn't have much of a problem moving from his old town, not really wanting anything to do with them anyways. Yet, he didn't seem to have too much excitement about moving to the big city either, something his father had hoped would make him happy just as much as it made Coen happy. But, that was not the case, and Haiden went on to having problems with the people of the big city. Especially in his school where he was often picked on and called strange, and was told that he was living in a haunted house. Of course, Haiden didn't believe a word of the other kid's stories, that was until he was the first to witness something paranormal in the new house.

Extra:

~Haiden is allergic to certain types of pollen, which makes being outside for him in the springtime rather hard.
~He has asthma and needs an inhaler to breathe, otherwise his lungs could close and he could die.
~The irrational fear of basements controls most of his thoughts, him feelings as though there's something down there waiting for him.

The Baby:
Name:

Kinsley Farah Waverly

Age:

Seven || March 18th || Pisces

Appearance:


Personality:

Kinsley is a rather bubbly girl unlike the rest of her older siblings, having always been able to smile no matter what was going on. Like her mother, Kinsley was a favorite around town and was always being praised for her good deeds, something that made her mother rather proud. The innocence surrounding Kinsley was plentiful until she moved to the new house, claiming to see people who weren't there and seeing them do terrible things to each other.

Kinsley slowly became less happy and more reclusive, joining the rest of her siblings when it came to overall gloominess. She couldn't remember what made her sad, but knew it started when she moved to the new house. Kinsley soon stopped playing outside and told her family that something wanted her to stay inside, scaring her mother and somewhat worrying her father. With all the strange things happening in the house, the family soon felt as though everything was changing for them. Kinsley wanted nothing more than to leave the house, hoping that her family would listen and felt discouraged when they hadn't.


History:

Kinsley was what the family would call the "Miracle Baby", since she almost died in the womb yet survived. She is definitely considered Darcy's favorite of the children, which is again said to say. Kinsley didn't get a chance to live in Coen and Darcy's hometown for long before they moved, her not feeling too sad about it except for how her siblings were taking it. Moving into the house, Kinsley felt rather afraid and like she could not breathe and insisted that the family go home. Unable to sleep in her own room in the house, Kinsley shared a room with Ramsey who was just as nervous about the house as the others were.

"Everyone shut up for just a goddamn second!" Coen shouted as he stared at the street signs overhead, trying to find the street that the family's new house was on. Darcy crossed her arms and glared at Coen as the car fell silent, Ramsey glancing over at Kamren who was listening to music. "You don't have to cuss at them, Coen. They're just excited about getting out of the damn car after being in it for more than seven hours!" Darcy yelled back at Coen, him rolling his eyes as he found the street he was looking for. Pulling the black SUV into the driveway of the rather large house, Coen glanced over at Darcy with a smile before speaking. "We made it! It looks a lot better in person than in the pictures, don't you think?" He asked as he got out of the car, Darcy and the kids glaring at the house as they too got out. Kinsley held on to Ramsey's hand as they walked up the gravel drive, Coen grabbing a few boxes as Darcy unlocked the front door. Haiden stared up at the house as the others went inside, him not liking the way the outside glared down at him. "Haiden? What are you doing? Help Kamren and your father bring in the boxes, sweetheart. We can look around when we get the work out of the way, now scoot!" Darcy called out the front door, Haiden snapping out of his trance as he walked back to the car with Kamren. Ramsey looked around the kitchen, running a hand over the counter.

"Mom, I thought dad said that this house was old?" Ramsey asked as Darcy came into the kitchen with some boxes, setting them on the counter before speaking. "It was built in the eighteen hundreds, Rams. It is an old house, just because it's clean doesn't mean that it's not old. Take Kinsley upstairs and find the bathroom, she was whining in the car." Darcy said as she went back outside, Ramsey rolling her eyes as she went into the living room to see Kinsley staring at the wall. "What are you doing, bug?" Ramsey asked, Kinsley turning around with a confused look on her face. Nothing, just thought I saw a picture on the wall when we came inside, but I'm probably just sleepy." Kinsley replied, Ramsey shrugging her shoulders before taking the girl's hand and leading her upstairs. There were more than enough bedrooms for everyone, and a grand hallway that showcased each one beautifully. Ramsey opened each door, instantly falling in love with one of the best naturally lit bedrooms. "Rams, I don't like it here." Kinsley said as she stared into each room as the two searched for the bathroom, the further into the house they went the more uncomfortable Kinsley felt.

Kamren and Haiden finished bringing in the boxes from the car, the U-Haul still behind in traffic for another hour or so. Kamren stood on the porch and sipped a Mountain Dew, glaring at the front yard that was so much smaller than the one they used to have. Haiden took a seat on the front step, drinking some kool-aid as he remained silent. "What's the matter?" Kamren asked, keeping his gaze in front of him as he took in the new scenery, unsure whether or not he was going to be able to adjust. "This place isn't home. I don't like it here, it gives me a really bad feeling." Haiden replied, Coen interrupting the conversation as he came outside with a glass of whiskey, taking a deep breath before slapping his hand down on Kamren's shoulder. "Truck should be here soon, boy. Don't get too comfortable, I'm gonna need your help with the furniture. Haiden, why don't you go open the cellar doors for me?" Coen asked as he turned and looked at Haiden, the boy glancing at his brother before nodding and heading around the side of the house. Glancing around the smaller backyard, Haiden took a deep breath before going over to the cellar doors. "Haiden!" Kamren called as he made his way over to his brother, giving him a soft smile before continuing to speak. "Let me do this, I told dad you've been dying to help him move furniture." Haiden smiled softly, thankful that his older brother knew of his fear and jogged off to help Coen, leaving Kamren to open the cellar doors on his own.

Darcy finished setting up the kitchen, it always being her favorite place to be. Unpacking her rather expensive champagne collection, Darcy paused when she heard her cellphone ringing from the living room. Leaving the kitchen, Darcy went to answer it quickly as to not miss the chance for a conversation. Kinsley walked into the kitchen, glancing around the room as she froze seeing a champagne bottle roll off the counter. The sound of the glass shattering prompted Darcy to run into the kitchen, seeing one of her bottles broken on the floor and Kinsley standing nearby. Kinsley! What have I told you about playing around mommy's wine?!" Darcy shouted, putting her phone on the counter as she grabbed some paper towels, wiping up the mess as she put her phone back to her ear. "Yeah, I'm here, Claire. Kinsley decided she was going to break one of my vintage wine bottles." She grumbled as she continued cleaning, Kinsley running off to Ramsey as she found her in the dining room. "Why was mom yelling at you? I know you know better than to play in the kitchen, Kins." Ramsey asked, Kinsley frowning as she explained that it rolled out of the bag on it's own, Ramsey sighing as she took Kinsley back upstairs and away from Darcy. Kamren shined the flashlight around the cellar while looking for the lights, glad that he had stopped Haiden from coming down there knowing his brother would have panicked like no other.

Haiden had been helping Coen move the furniture from the truck that had arrived earlier than expected, which made Coen very happy that he could get everything unloaded before dark. "You excited about the new house. Haiden?" Coen asked as the two carried in Darcy's favorite loveseat, Haiden shrugging in response as he remained quiet while the two walked into the living room. Setting the loveseat down, Coen wiped his forehead before lighting a cigarette and glancing around the living room. He was pretty pleased with himself for getting such a nice house, even if his kids seemed to not like the move. Darcy came out of the kitchen, still talking on the phone as she smiled at how the living room looked. "You should see how it's coming along already, Claire. I can't wait to see how the bedroom is going to look, we just got some new curtains." She said as she walked into the office room, envisioning how the house would look when they were all done unpacking. Coen shook his head at Darcy, hating how she was already on the phone and they had just arrived not even a few hours before. Kamren emerged from the cellar, having not found anything that remotely interesting before heading back inside. Coen tossed Kamren a beer, Kamren glancing up at his father with confusion in his eyes. "You did a good job today, son. Go ahead and enjoy a cold one, but don't think that means you're done helping." Coen said with a small grin as he slid a few boxes over to Haiden to unpack, opening a beer of his own as he searched over the labels.

Ramsey and Kinsley had found rooms that they both liked, Kinsley gazing out the window of the one she had chosen for herself. Ramsey stood in the doorway, watching the young girl for a moment before speaking and breaking the silence. "What are you looking at?" She asked, Kinsley keeping her gaze forward as she continued to stare outside, something catching her attention yet she couldn't explain what it was. "I just have a feeling that I should be standing here, like it's something mommy or daddy told me to do." Kinsley replied, Ramsey biting her lower lip as she walked up behind Kinsley and stared out the window too, not seeing what the young girl was waiting for. "Well, we should go and let them know we found our rooms, don't you wanna show mom?" Ramsey asked, Kinsley shrugging before walking out of the room, Ramsey sighing before following behind her quickly. That night at dinner, the family sat quietly as Darcy finished her phone conversation. Setting her phone down, she took a bite of her spaghetti before wiping her mouth as she spoke. "So, how was everyone's first day? Did you guys have fun putting your rooms together?" She asked, the kids exchanging glances as Coen spoke, stopping the others from answering her question. "Well, Darcy, you would know how things were if you had spent time with us instead of being on the phone with Claire all the way till dinner, wouldn't you agree?" His voice was aggravated, causing Ramsey to glance over at Kamren as her mother responded.

"Well, just because you thought we should start over in a bigger town, doesn't mean that the rest of us were prepared to say goodbye." Darcy replied, Coen rolling his eyes as he heard Ramsey sighing before she interrupted them. "Please, this is our first dinner in the new house, and I don't want Haiden and Kinsley to remember that everyday, do you? Now, let's just have a good dinner like we used to before the two of you decided every word out of your mouths has to be an argument." She said sternly, Kamren nodding in agreement as Coen and Darcy exchanged looks before eating in silence for a few minutes. "Kinsley, what do you think of the new house?" Darcy asked, Kinsley swirling her spaghetti around on her fork as she rested her head in her palm, glancing up at Darcy before back down at her plate. "I'm not supposed to go outside, so I don't really like it." She replied, the family remaining quiet as they all looked at each other, neither of them telling her she wasn't allowed to go outside. "You're allowed to go outside, bugger. Who told you that you couldn't?" Coen asked, Kinsley shrugging as she took a bite of her food, Darcy sighing softly as she looked at Ramsey and Kamren. "If one of you are trying to be funny by scaring her into thinking she can't go outside, there's going to be some serious problems. Do you understand me?" Darcy said sternly, Ramsey and Kamren nodding as they continued eating dinner in silence. "Dad.. Do you think I could sign up for football here?" Kamren asked, Coen sighing loudly as he put his fork down, running his hands over his face as he glared at Kamren. "We have talked about this, don't you remember what happened at the old house? Do you really want that to happen again, Kamren?" Coen asked, Kamren glancing down at his plate as he remained silent, Coen nodding before eating once more. "Dad, that was two years ago, Kamren can try out again; no one even knows him here." Ramsey said in Kamren's defense, Coen ignoring her as Darcy snapped her fingers.

"Ramsey! Your father has spoken, Kamren knows better than to ask about football again. That's all there is to it, and I don't want to hear another word about it, he can join something else. We aren't having another incident like last time, I won't deal with the shame I felt when going to the store." Darcy shouted, Kinsley wincing softly as she buried her head in Ramsey's shirt, Ramsey stroking her hair softly as she looked away from Darcy. "Haiden, you've been quiet tonight, what's on your mind tonight?" Coen asked, trying to break up the tension building between Ramsey and Darcy, Haiden glancing up from his food before speaking dully. "I don't like it here, I told you that. I don't want to sit here and pretend to be happy when I know we shouldn't be here. It's your fault you don't want to listen to me, I don't feel like talking about anything else." He replied, Darcy standing up before pointing at the stairs, a serious look in her eye as she interrupted him. "That is enough of this, you three have school tomorrow and Ramsey has job hunting to do. March upstairs and get to bed, now." She commanded, Coen leaning back as he pushed his plate away while the kids went upstairs. "Good one, Dars. Their first night is going to be miserable, and their mother is as cold and as distant as she was back home." Coen said as he got up from his chair and took his plate to the kitchen, Darcy following him with her and the kids as she spoke. "What do you mean, cold and distant? I am here for them just as much as you are when you aren't at the lounge, but that won't change since there's once here too! This whole move has been about you, better job, better lounge, casino opportunities! Everything that Coen Waverly could possibly want, but what about his family?" She shouted, slamming the dishes in the sink just lightly enough to where they wouldn't break, lighting a cigarette as she continued to yell.

"Your eighteen year old daughter felt the need to move with us because she was worried about Kamren, Haiden, and Kinsley! Haiden doesn't do well in largely populated areas, and you want him to adjust to the thought of going to big school in the morning in one night? Jesus Christ, Coen! Has any of this occurred to you at all?" She asked, staring into his eyes as he sighed while realizing that she was right about everything, that he hadn't really thought about his family and only thought of himself. "I'm sorry, Dars. You're absolutely right, in every sense of the word. Tomorrow, when the kids get home from school, I'll take them out and let them see what this city has to offer. Give them a chance to see that this move isn't so bad, and I'll make it up to you as well. I promise." Coen said as he pulled her into a hug, Darcy smiling softly as she hugged him back softly. Ramsey sat on Kinsley's bed while brushing her hair, Kinsley watching Lady and the Tramp on Ramsey's tablet. "Kins, what did you mean when you told them you couldn't go outside? Did Kamren tell you that you weren't allowed?" Ramsey asked, Kinsley shaking her head as she continued to watch her movie, Ramsey deciding not to push the little girl any further. "Alright, bugger. I'm gonna head to bed now, make sure you say your prayers and wish the boys a good night." Ramsey smiled as she sat the brush on the nightstand and kissed Kinsley's forehead, Kinsley handing her the tablet before Ramsey shook her head. "You go ahead and use it tonight, since you're in a new room and all." She said before leaving the door cracked, heading to her room to get some sleep.

A month had passed of the Waverly's adjusting to their new home, Coen having gotten his job as promised while Darcy opened up a small shop on the outside of town. Ramsey stood with Kinsley under an umbrella, waiting for Darcy to come and pick them up. She was late as she had been almost every day the month before, Ramsey growing impatient and yearning for a car of her own. Haiden was usually the first one home, him already throwing his things in his room and heading down to the game room that was in the finished basement. Turning on the system, Haiden glanced up at the television to see a man standing behind him in the reflection, him turning around quickly to see nothing there. "Dad?" He called, standing up as he glanced around the open basement before calling out again, waiting to hear something in return. "Kamren, is that you?" Haiden walked to the bottom of the basement stairs, glancing up at them before turning back around. Freezing in terror as a man with a distorted face stood with his face in Haiden's, Haiden tried to scream but could not make a sound. The ghostly man let out a very haunting scream before Haiden mustered up his courage to run, racing up the stairs as he slammed the basement door shut. "What's wrong with you?" Kamren asked as he sat his book bag down on the floor, glaring down at Haiden who looked terrified. "Deep breaths, Haiden!" Kamren shouted as Haiden began to hyperventilate, Kamren searching for the emergency inhaler that was not where it was supposed to be. Taking one from his book bag that he used in case he really needed it, Kamren helped Haiden sit up and puffed the inhaler into his mouth for him. Haiden took deep breaths while still trying to get away from the basement door, Kamren helping him move back before he calmed down some.

"What happened?! Why are you so freaked out?!" Kamren asked the moment Haiden could speak, the young boy shaking from fear as he tried to explain what he saw. "I thought.. I thought it was you or dad, or maybe it could have even been mom.. But, it wasn't, he wasn't either of you guys!" Haiden shouted, standing himself up as he raced away from the basement door, Kamren standing up before turning towards it. "Someone is in the house? Are you okay?! Stay up here!" Kamren commanded before grabbing his baseball bat, heading downstairs as Haiden called after him frantically. "Kamren! No! Don't go down there, it's not safe!" Kamren searched the entire basement and found nothing, heading back upstairs before shutting the door behind him. "There was nothing down there, Haiden. Are you sure you weren't just dreaming?" Kamren asked, Haiden shaking his head angrily before speaking, clenching his fists as he spoke. "No, Kamren. I wasn't asleep, I was going to play the Xbox. I saw it in the television, and then he was in my face at the bottom of the stairs. I ran up here the moment he started screaming, and then I saw you. There was no sleeping!" Haiden shouted back as Ramsey and Kinsley walked in the house, somewhat soaked from having to walk home. "Mom never came. Why is he yelling? What's going on?" Ramsey asked as she helped Kinsley out of her coat, Kamren shaking his head before looking at Haiden. "Tell her what you told me, Haiden." Kamren commanded, Haiden staring at the ground before shaking his head, not wanting to tell his older sister what happened. "Haiden, you know we don't keep secrets, I can't help you if you do.. What did you see?" Ramsey asked as she crouched down to his face, placing a hand on his shoulder as he glared back at her.

"I saw a ghost."
