Chapter 1

5th Grade

"C'mon Heather, aren't you interested in it a little bit?" my best friend Samantha asked me, trying to peak my curiosity.

"No Sam, you know there is probably a reason why there is a Keep Out! sign in the front..." I respond, trying to seek reason with her.

"Aren't you a bit curious?"

"No, Sam, no."

"Whatever, then I'll go there by myself Heather!"

She runs off to the distant mansion and I chase after her, knowing full well that she was trying to bait and trap me. I fell for it easily, because I really cared for her well-being(a bit more than she did). She shakes the gate and it is locked for her misfortune and my great fortune. She struggles with it for a while but once I reach her, she gives up. I pat her shoulder and we walk back home together.

8th Grade

After our last class of the day finishes, we make our paths home and pass by the supposedly haunted mansion that Sam is super obsessed with. Ever since elementary, she has been begging me to explore this with her. I mean Sam is my best friend and I would do anything to make her happy, however, I still cared for her well-being. We get really close to it and Sam stops for a bit to observe it but I just pull her along making an excuse that I needed to "get home early" even though I didn't have anyone to go back to.

12th Grade

By this time we had two other friends(who were both boys) that joined our group. We were walking home together (talking the whole way) and we passed the mansion again. This time, Sam declared out loud, "Hey guys, want to explore this mansion right here? I mean, it looks fun!" Castille and Anthony look at the mansion and nod their heads in agreement to Sam's idea(who was more of the leader of the group) and she looks at me in defiance knowing that I have to give in with Castille and Anthony also agreeing to her "amazing" plan. I groan in disgust and before Sam can discuss a way for us to get into the mansion in the first place, I say before realizing it, "Guys, shouldn't we record this to make it go viral?"

They pause to think about this but Castille remarks, "Then what are phones for in 2017? Calling?" Everyone chuckles a bit at this and Sam begins to think out loud her plans to get over the gate.

Oh, boy! Isn't this going to be a hell of an adventure!

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)

Dessie Williams: loved the book. the plot the characters all just great.I think it's a must read. once you start this book it's hard to put down. hope it gets published....I think this book is a must read.great job!!!!

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.
