DAVID WIENER WAS a writer, who wrote scary stories, which included stories about werewolves, vampires and witches. He had collected and researched a lot of sources in order to write his stories. According to his girlfriend, or rather his ex-girlfriend, he had in fact, just broken up with her. So in her own words, she thought he should be called a historian rather than a fiction writer.
It was a lovely sunny day, David Wiener moved into Lily Valley from London alone.
Lily Valley was a beautiful town. It was modernized even though it was far from the big cities. It had all amenities one needed, and they were the most advanced.
David had found an apartment to rent on the internet before he arrived. The landlady was in her late forties, but seemed more like a woman in her early thirties.
The landlord didn't live there. She lived in a big house which was located at the end of the town. As she said, there would be a Chinese girl coming and live there.
Two days later, a Chinese girl wearing jeans with long black hair showed up. She was a lively and talkative girl. She said, "Hey, How are you?" to David, without waiting for the landlady to introduce her.
Unexpectedly, she spoke fluent English with a perfect London accent. She also had a pretty face.
David smiled and said,"Hi, David Wiener, how are you?"
"Fine thanks, I'm Rachel Yang."
After settling Rachel in, the landlady left.
After she tidied up her bedroom, Rachel watched TV and chatted with David in the living room. They hit off very quickly.
Later on in the evening, Rachel went back to her own room on the second floor, and read a book.
David was writing his new novel at the dinner table when the bell rang.
There were three people standing outside when David opened the door, two men and a woman. One of the men said, "Hi, I'm Daniel, Rachel's friend. She lives here, doesn't she?"
"Yes, she just arrived today."
"Why don't you invite us to come in."
Before he could say anything, a man shouted out, "Don't let them in!"
A young couple came to the door, the man who has shouted to David, "I'm Gavin, and this is my girlfriend Maria, you definitely shouldn't let them in!"
David was confused.
Daniel stared at Gavin and his girlfriend coldly for a while, and then said to his two henchmen, "Let's go."
