The house was quiet and peaceful on a pebbled street, the moving trucks pulled up as Clara followed. She stepped out of her car and looked at the house thinking of how this is a fresh start in her life. “Its perfect” she said with a smile on her face. As the movers pushed open the trailer door Clara walked through the white picket fence gate on to the pebbled path and felt the feeling that she was safe, she whispered to herself “Home”.
She stepped of the porch into the house to help the movers by telling them where she wanted the furniture to go. When she stepped into the kitchen she stopped in fright, out of the corner of her eye she swore she saw a human shaped shadow. When she looked over it was gone and a trash can stood in its place. She got her self together walked to the car and grabbed the box full of china that her grandma gave to her on her 16th birthday. She walked across the dining room and sat the box on the table. As she was pulling a teacup out there was a knock at the door. She put down the cup and maneuvered around the movers and and was greeted by a man dressed in a red dress shirt black pants, and fire red hair. he looked at her with a sinister smirk and said “welcome to the neighbourhood”.

“One key and one Key only is able to reveal wonders and horrors”.
Clara thought in her head what it mean. she jumped as a loud bang came from behind the door. She reached for the doorknob and right a she grabbed it she heard a gunshot and a scream. Clara ran down stairs filled with fear she ran outside and was hit in the head by a falling branch.
Clara woke up in her room on her bed, she felt her head and there was a massive bump on the back of her head. She got up and walked to the bathroom. She turned on the light and looked in the mirror she bent down to splash water on her face. As she stood up and...
