Mystery / Horror

Prologue

He stood by the window. The sunlight that came in through the glass illuminated the dusty attic. Although the light touched his skin but he seemed care less. He'd been living with it for many years that when living humans count, they would get shocked. With both hands clasped in front of him, he looked out of the window, watching an unfamiliar, black car slowly entered the front yard. He looked emotionless as he kept his eyes on the car. Two seconds after that, the car stopped.

Even with the tinted car window, he could see a couple sitting at the front - the husband on the driver seat and the wife on the shotgun. Both of them looked around the house from inside of the car while unbuckling the seat belt. The wife looked amused. She looked surprised and impressed with the house she's seeing and she looked like she couldn't wait to come into the house and discover the inner house herself. Smiling, the wife turned to look at her husband. Her mouth moved, indicating she's saying something like, "It's beautiful," to her husband.

When the car's doors opened, he didn't expect the couple to have children. Wait, no, they only have a child. A girl. She looked innocent and naive by the way she dressed. Since it's autumn and the weather wasn't that cold, she wore something not too thick but not too exposing. A descent sundress and sandals were enough to make her looked beautiful. Her hair was in a braid that slung over her shoulder. When her eyes looked around the house, like her mother, she looks amused. Her big lime eyes sparkled as she eyed every corner of the house.

Still standing by the window, he watched her. Like he was frozen, he stood there still. He looked starstruck by the way he looked at her unblinking. His mouth gaped as he eyed her. He couldn't get his eyes off of her. His eyes followed where she's heading to and blamed the car for hiding her when she was getting her stuffs in the trunk. He became excited when she appeared once again, walking with her mother to the entrance with her bags. The corner of his mouth twitched and turned into a smirk.

He didn't notice when a boy came into the room as he was busy watching the family or specificially her, but he didn't flinch when he heard a voice close behind him. "New incomer?" asked the boy to him, soft and raspy.

Still smirking from the effect of the girl, he nodded his head. Then he turned and faced the boy. "And I guess we're going to have a girl to be our new member."

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...
