The house on the end of Hickory Avenue had always caught the attentions of people, locals and tourists alike. What was left of the house's thin coat of yellow paint couldn't hind all the cracks and holes on the outside of the house, allowing curious viewers to see inside (although it was still far too dark to make anything out). Overall, the house was just menacing, and most parents forbade their children from ever going near it...
Until Lawson's parents forgot.
(To be continued yay)
