The Elm House :Haunted house eager to have human souls as a snack.
When Brad Herrick and his family moved into an older Victorian home in Old Willows Brooke, they couldn’t be anymore happier. A beautiful house enriched with history. But Brad had his suspicion about his family’s new home. His suspicion grew more and more as ghostly activity began more frequent. An attic door opening by itself then slamming shut, for starters. Children’s footsteps and laughter echoing throughout the house. Even his little sister, Jesse, acting weirder by the day. As more Brad dug up information about his family’s home, the darker the “enriched” history became. It’s only a matter of time, the elm house would reveal it’s sinister plans for the Herrick family. Will they survive or succumb to their demise as the previous owners have?
“What a damn shame… horrible accident on I-95.”
He shook his head then placed the newspaper away and dove into his food. After he took one bite of his breakfast, he moaned and glanced over at his wife.
“There’s something different in these eggs, doll face.”
He nodded his head in approval.
“Just a little bit of garlic and dash of basil, that’s all.” She smiled back warmly. Her cheeks giving a nice glow of redness. Her head turned towards Brad.
“Are you feeling a bit less nervous about school?” she asked him.
Brad shrugged his shoulders. His corner of his mouth pulled upward a bit.
“Kinda,” he said. Still inside, the butterflies swam around and around inside his stomach. He wasn’t less nervous. No, he was an absolute wreck inside. There was a slight sliver of hope inside Brad’s chest that everything would go smoothly. Although Old Willows Brooke High School is in a good neighborhood compared to Mount Everson High, he couldn’t completely convince himself, a 100-percent guarantee, that the first day would turn out silky smooth. Who knows, thought, right? Not like Brad had secretly obtained the ability to foresee the future, now, right? He’ll just have to dive into the deep waters and see for himself.”
