Lee rolled out of bed to use the bathroom. Lazily, he made his way down the hall bumping into the wall. His head still hurt from the fall he had the other day.

He jerked his head up and looked around cautiously. Lee knew there was noone else in the house. "I must of been dreaming." He said to himself.BUZZ- The alarm clock woke him up at six a.m. Drearily, he got into the shower. He dreaded today. Today, him and his brother and sister would be going through their mother's things. Three weeks ago they suddenly lost their mom in a hit and run. The police were still searching for the person who did it.Getting into his car, he jerked his head toward the passenger seat. He thought he seen a strange oddly shaped figure, but nothing was there. "It must be all the stress." He said to himself.As he arrived at his mothers, he noticed that his sister and brother were already inside. "Hey Brenda, hi Tony, how's it going separating mom's things?" "It's actually going a little smoother than I expected." Brenda said.

Lee fell down on his knees, when he looked up, she was gone.Lee remembered the fall he had, and wondered if all the sites and voices had anything to do with it. Ever since he had fallen and got that bump on his head, ghostly outlines of strange creatures had begun to appear, at first it was just fleeting, but in the last few days they appeared more and more frequently.Something very strange was going on.
