Chapter 1
It was a bright and beautiful day. Jon was packing the car up, while Karen was writing in her diary. “Honey lets go, we’re going to miss are flight.” “Coming dear” Karen closed her diary and placed it on the bed. Karen gets in the car and Jon speeds out of the driveway and heads towards the airport. “I’m so excited for our trip” Karen said as she is looking at a Boucher. “7 days of relaxation and do I need it.” About an hour into the drive overcast clouds form and than it starts to rain very hard. “Jon you should slow down, you can barley see the road.” Karen said with a worry tone in her voice. Jon slows the car down and tries to focus hard onto the road. It was a dead silence in the car as Jon tries to drive their car through the rough rain. Just up the road coming towards them was a semi trunk. The driver of the trunk seemed to be careless as he eats his food while he is driving. Up ahead there was a traffic light that was turning red. The Truck driver looks up and sees the yellow light and quickly slams on his breaks and with the rain on the road causing the truck to slip and slide from side to side. The couple still driving up the road eventually sees the truck coming and Jon quickly slams on the break causing there car to slip and slide as well. The truck than topples over and is sliding towards the couple’s car. The couple’s car starts to spin around and eventually the car stops spinning and Karen’s side is facing towards the truck. The car and the truck slam into each other and there is massive damage. Jon crawls out of the wrecked car and checks on his wife. He looks over and sees Karen lying on the ground lifeless. Jon stares at her in shock and begins to cry.

Chapter 2
6 months have past since the accident and Jon is finishing packing up his things. “Are you sure you want to leave?” said Tom. Tom his best friend since he was 12 years old, who was also his best man at his wedding, was always there for him when he needed him. “I just need to clear my mind. The farther I get away from this place the better.” Jon grabs his last boxes and throws it into his trunk. “Where will you go?” Tom said with a concerned voice. “Miles away from here” “Well if you need anything give me a call buddy” Jon goes into his house to make sure he didn’t forget anything, he sees his wife’s diary on the ground he picks it up and places it on the ground where there bed use to be. Jon then locks the door to the house jumps into his car and drives off.
After driving for hours and seeing no sight of any civilization he finally reaches his destination. The town is a very small, it is surrounded by trees. It almost seems as if there are no residences at all. He drives to his new house and walks up to the door. He puts the key in and opens the door. The door makes a creek noise as it opens and Jon walks in. It’s a pretty small house it has no upstairs, and a small basement. Later that day Jon is unpacking his stuff when there is a knock at his door. He stands up, walks over to the door, and opens it to reveal a young women standing there with a smile on her face, her name is Amber. “Hi, I’m your new neighbor; I have come to welcome you to the neighborhood.” “Won’t you come in” replied Jon. Amber and Jon both walk into the kitchen, “would you like anything?” “Water would be nice” answered Amber. Jon filled up a cup and gave it to Amber. “What brings you to the neighborhood?” there was a short pause before Jon answered “Just wanted to start over, I guess.” Amber finished her drink and placed the cup on the table. She stood up and was walking towards the door when she stopped and said “They have told you about the stories of this house, right?” Jon looked at Amber all confused. The both went back to the kitchen and Amber started to tale the tale. “A long time ago, a man once lived here. He came to this town too escaping from something. He lived in this house as well, alone. One night he heard voices, they said they we’re warning him of something. Jon was staring at her as if he seen a ghost. “Than one day he was gone. Some say he followed the voices, and yet other say something got him.” Amber started to laugh and Jon joined her. After Amber left, Jon finished unpacking his stuff. Later that night, Jon started to head to his bedroom. When suddenly he heard a noise in the distance, the noise was quite noise as if it was coming from outside. Jon quickly ran to his front door and opens it. The voices are still a little hazy they seem like they are coming from the woods. Jon steps outside and heads towards the woods. “Hello is anyone there?” the voices stop and Jon starts to head back home when there is a ruffle in the woods. “Who’s there?” Jon shouted.
