Okay. Let me get this clear to you. I'm but an amateur writer so I'm not supposed to
be some literary genius. If you think I'm worthy of comment, though, please do. I'm
sick of "OOH! NICE!" or "EWW!" You know, things like that. So please make it
constructive. I know I sound cold but that's what I'm like: To the point. So I'm just
saying: No prejudice or assumptions. Just read and be done with it. :D

Part One: 27th Hillside Street

The house on 27th Hillside Street had always been unoccupied. In fact, it had been
for so long that it was thought to be haunted. The house was in a real mess, and it
would make anybody shudder to think of the piles of dead insects, dirt and grime that
had accumulated over the years. The backyard was claimed by unruly weeds of all
sorts, and they seemed to make the house seem even emptier and unwanted than it
already did. It stood out in stark contrast to all the other pretty houses around

As the story goes, the house was once occupied by an elderly couple twenty years ago,
who had moved to a pretty little cottage by the seaside, and put the house up for
sale. It had all been the usual procedures: A real estate agent, interested clients,
the usual builders and workmen were scheduled to come renovate the house. What was
unusual was that they never arrived. It seemed as if everybody had just, somehow or
other, forgotten the whole matter, and the house stood empty for two decades. 

There had been much gossip in town after that mysterious event, but after so long,
even the busybodies had tired of that topic, and everybody went back to their regular
lifestyles as if nothing had happenned. Occasionally, there would be kids asking the
adults about the house, and they would tell the story all over again, but that was
all. What the people didn't know was that it wouldn't stay empty for much longer.

I'm sorry if it wasn't what you expected... Thanks for telling me
your honest opinion. Finally someone has the guts to tell me I suck.

Well, I guess I have a lot to improve on. ESPECIALLY story beginnings.
