I said I could have this chapter out by monday. I kinda forgot we planned a little trip away from home and it was too late to change it. Sorry. Anyway here’s the chapter.
The house was build by Deligracy
“I’ll start! Hi I’m Olivia Spencer-Kim-Lewis. I know it’s a long name.” Olivia knew none of these children had a very good background and wanted to reassure them.
“My mom and dad divorced a while back. What else? Ohh yeah! I have a little brother who rather plays chess then to celebrate halloween. Crazy.”
“Now me! I’m Chelsea! I have a big brother who already works and stuff! I don’t have my parents anymore! People say that I’m very very smart ,but I talk too much! Do you guys think I talk too much? Anyway, I’m a princess because my daddy used to call me a little princess and my brother calls me that too!” Chelsea said in one breath.
“Wow Chelsea. You sure are pretty in that dress.” Olivia commented.
“Can I go now?”
“Well my name is Eefje.” she was speaking in a high pitched voice “I never knew my dad. And my brother is being mean to me because I’m the oldest.”
“Ohh. Why are you wearing that costume Eefje? Where did you get it. I haven’t seen it around the shops.” Olivia asked out of curiosity.
“Mommy made it. She painted a jumpsuit and got a pumpkin.”
“Well it is very pretty.”
“I’m Ethan. My parents are already old. I’ve already got nieces and nephews that are even older than me.”
“Ohh yeah. Sarah right?” Olivia asked
“Yep. She’s the oldest. Do you know her?”
“Yeah. We go to the same class.”
“Cool. I’ll tell her I saw you.”
“Kids!” Martin yelled “We’re not going trick or treating.”
“We got a call that this house might be haunted!”
*gasp* “Sure it is.”
Olivia was looking angry or cunfused at Martin.
“We should check it out.”
“Yeah ,but first Martin and I go check if nobody is home.” Olivia said and they walked to the front door.
“Martin!? What the plum.”
“Ha! You look so pret— funny when you’re angry.”
“We were supposed to go trick or treating!”
“I know but Chase told me about this and it looked cool. Much more fun than ordinary trick or treating.”
“I’ve never even seen this house and I live pretty close by.”
“It was painted not so long ago. Anyway, this is much more fun. Let’s get the kids.”
“I don’t think there is somebody inside…..yet!”
They stepped inside.
“Hey Missy! Look!”
“Cool! Let’s try to open it!”
“We can’t! It’s not something you should do!”
Evan and Missy looked at eachother and nodded.
“Eefje. You are official banned from the cool club.”
“Go to my boring brother or something.”
“Umm ma’am? Who are you?”
“I’m Grace Newberry. The owner of this house.”
“What? But Chase told me nobody lives here.”
“I don’t live here. I’ve used to. Me and my husband got too old to use the stairs. So we re-furnished the house.”
“Sorry, but why are you even here?”
“I got a call that the smoke alarm went off. We were at a halloween party with our grandchildren ourselves.”
“Ohh I’m soo sorry.”
“It’s okay. Is there a lot of damage?”
“No. The building didn’t catch on fire. It did burn some grass away.”
“That might make it even more scary.”
Missy came back down the stairs.
“Okay. We’re soo sorry ma’am–”
“Call me Grace.”
“Okay. Thank you Grace. Kids gather at the door. We’re leaving.”
“You all must be starving. Let me cook you something.”
“I’m sorry Grace, but I think these kids just want to go home.”
Olivia and the kids walked trough the door a few minutes later. Just as Martin wanted to go outside Grace pulled him aside.
“That is a very pretty girl you have there.”
*sigh* “I know.”
“Don’t worry. What is meant to happen. Will happen.”
“Thank you Grace.”
Thank you for reading.
