The Goodwin Hotel
Claire, Elizabeth, and Marie were tired. They had been driving for hours to get to their destination. They had finally reached the little town of Seven Hills, Virginia, and wanted nothing more than a bed to sleep in.
They drove around looking for the hotel that they had seen online. It had to be somewhere.
"Turn left! No left! Your other left!" Marie shouted from the passenger's seat, fearing for her life because of Claire's reckless driving habits.
"Can't you two get along?" Elizabeth asked from the backseat, sleep lacing her every word.
"No!" Marie snapped at the same time Claire said "If you weren't here we'd kill each other."
"Fine then." Elizabeth mumbled, sounding more awake.
"Sorry Liz, but you know that we just don't get along." Marie said, before excitedly exclaiming "Look! There! A hotel with a vacancy! Pull in now, you madwoman!"
Claire screeched to a halt, before making an almost 180 degree turn so they could get into the driveway. The hotel was large, and it looked like it used to be somebody's mansion. The sign had said Goodwin Hotel on it, so the girls assumed that the Goodwin family used to own the mansion.
"Let's go. I'm tired." Elizabeth said, yawning. The three girls all grabbed their bags from the trunk of Claire's car, and made their way into the hotel.
"Three single bed rooms, please." Elizabeth said, giving the old woman working the front desk a sleepy half smile.
"Here you go dear, three rooms." the old woman said, showing off her wide, almost unsettling smile.
Claire scoffed at the woman because she had lipstick on her teeth.
The woman made a note of that, her smile turning chilling as the three girls made their way into their separate rooms. Her son would deal with the rude one first.
