It was midnight, Master Cameron was sitting in his study reading a book. He was thinking about heading to the library for a quick read. Master Cameron did just that, he got up from his red velvet chair and walked towards the brown door. His hand caressed the bronze door handle. The door opens, he walked down the second floor hallway and towards the brown door. He opened the door, rows upon rows of books lined up. All spanning generations of literature. Master Cameron seen a book he liked, he grabbed the book. The door closed behind him as he wondered what happened? That was the last thing he heard.

The next morning, the maid was fixing breakfast. Ham and cheese with scrambled eggs. She walked up the carpeted stairs to the second floor, however he wasn't in his bedroom. She then figured out that he might be in the library. She touched the door handle but it was locked. The other family members were in their rooms at the time asleep or doing their own thing. Then when she kicked the door down, she seen the body. Several stab wounds all over the body, blood all over the floor and books. His eyes open wide, mouth agape and the murder weapon next to him. She screamed at the top of her lungs, this awoke everyone else. They came running from the rooms and seen the body. This was going to be the most stressful 24 hours of their life.

The eldest son of the family Richard asked everyone to head towards the living room to discuss what they just seen. Richard was a hardworking man, he worked in retail and he was a manager at the new Cosco in town. He was a loyal son but he had his issues, he once stole some money from his father's wallet for reasons. They had a few rows with each other, but nothing serious. He did want some money from him but he refused. Richard hated that idea so ever since he wanted to steal what was rightfully his. 

The next person to walk into the room was Mary, she had blonde hair and a flower dress on with expensive jewelry, she was the eldest sister in the family, she is a model for a famous magazine and she makes money, however she spends it way too loosely and she don't have enough for bills, she tried asking money from her father he did only twice when he said no, she didn't take this too lightly and ceased contact with him, all because she wanted the money. 

The next person who walked in is David, David was the middle son of the family. He was a engineer at Apple and he is working on a new phone for the populs, he has no reason to want money, but he did need some when he need extra parts for the phone but father didn't give in, since David was always the weird one of the children. David was also the smartest sibling, but he has a anger issue where if he doesn't get what he wants he looses it, sometimes breaks stuff. So they are extra careful when to make him angry. 

The next person who came into the room was Margaret, she had red hair and she had a phone in her hand, she is the middle daughter of the family, she is a internet celebrity where she has fans who watch her music videos and her challenge videos, she also had concerts at some point. But when her views started to drop she started to loose money. This is where she asked the feather money but be didn't agree to it, since he didn't find YouTube a real job and she should get a real one than a fake one. This made Margaret angry and she never talked with him again, until recently when they all hosted a get together at his house, everyone showed up for the festivities. 

The next person who walked into the room is Leon, he is the youngest son of the family at the age of 19 and he wants to be a game designer but since he didn't get into a college fast enough his dream plummeted. He usually is in his room playing video games and reading manga but sometimes he plays chess with Master Cameron, Leon was always his favorite child since he was the good boy of the group. Leon never asked for anything from his father, but he did ask for a new system. His father said wait for his birthday, which after current events will never happen. 

The next person who walked in was Sandra, the youngest daughter of the family, she is 18 years old and she is bright as a bee. But she dropped out of school because she did drugs and made friends with the wrong people. So she got into gangs and stuff, but she loved her father and she never ever expected what happened to her father, she is hating everyone of them. She did ask countless times for money for drugs but he said no, she got angry a couple of times and broke stuff. 

The final person who walked into the room is Lady Cromwell, mother and wife of the master, she stood at a tall 6'0 and she is the queen bee of the family, she had all the money and all the power to the estate, she loved everyone of her kids to death and she loved her husband more than anyone in the world. She was getting old since she was 68 and she had a mouth on her, on rare occasions they would fight for who will get the inheritance on when they die, she never finalized his will...maybe she will.

Everyone was accounted for in the living room, Richard cleared his throat and said. 

"Where shall we begin?"
