How far would you go to win a dare?

My name is Derrick wells. I was 17 years old at the time. My friend Matt and I were dared one night to sneak inside “the Max steed estate” now Max steed was murdered in his sleep and his family was also murdered nobody knows what he did but his death was not painless. Rumors said the last thing he heard was the sound of a chainsaw. 
Anyhow this Murder took place recently like three days ago and the killer was Never found. My friend dared me to sneak inside the home late one night. It was around 2 in the morning I had a flashlight. The deal was if it became 3 am and I was still there then Matt would come find me. I had to stay in the house for just an hour. Well when I opened the door and made it up the stairs and into the home was when the nightmare had begun I saw glass on the floor and blood on the walls and a chainsaw was on the table bloody. 
I gulped. 3 am came and Matt called up to me to come out. Matt went up looking for me he couldn’t find me. “This isn’t funny” Matt said and threatened to leave me behind. Matt figured maybe I got scared and went home. He’s make fun of me tomorrow in school. 
But tomorrow came and went and there was no sign of Derrick. 
Matt told our other friends what happened and we went back to the house to look. It was just then that we found out the murderer had just been arrested hours before. 
I froze in horror as I realized that I dared my best friend to sneak into a house where a murderer was still living at.
