Mr Flax had always seemed strange to me. There was just something not right about him. My folks always said it was just my imagination, Mr Flax had a beautiful house, well kept garden and his cat was well cared for. Mr Flax was well dressed clean cut and looked after, but there was something behind those dark brown eyes and friendly smile. His Wife Mrs Flax was beautiful she had long red hair and deep green eyes, she could of been 25 years old but I knew she probably just had good genes as Mr Flax was 40 years old.Mrs Flax was always kind and would greet me and my friends as we walked passed the house after school.
I was 16 at the time so school and friends took up most of my time and soon I never really thought about Mr Flax.That was until one night late I heard russeling in the bushes below my windows.Leaving the light off I went to peek out the window and saw a man walking away from my house. I ran to get my folks and told them what I saw my mom said "It is probably just Mr Flax looking for his cat, go back to sleep Honey"
and so I did. The next day I was sitting on our front porch when a black cat came aand sat next to me, it was Mr Flax's Cat called GoodGrief.She looked at me with her big bright yellow eyes, meowed and then rand off into Mr Flax's back yard.I followed her and saw she was sitting by an old shed. It was a beautiful shed painted blue with white windows and a black roof and door. GoodGief kept scratching at the door , I peered into the shed and saw an assortment of instruments, sharp objects and tools hanging on the walls and a trap door on the floor.I heard Mr Flax and Mrs Flax voice and I bolted back to my yard.They were arguing and their voices got louder and louder.I heard a loud thud and then silence, I tried peering around the house but saw nothing 
For the next few days Mrs Flax was nowhere to be seen.Mr Flax also kept starring at me and smiling at me and that gave me the creeps.He also kept asking me to come over for tea or coffee but I always decline.
Late again one night I am a woken by the sound of my window opening..and see a dark figure standing by my bed I try to scream but then evething goes black.
I wake up in a room with grey walls and no windows...I look and see Mr Flax starring at me , I realize that this must be the room under the trap door in the shed.I see the body of Mrs Flax in the corner.Mr Flax grins and removes Mrs Flax red hair which was a wig and walks over to me."You will be my new wife" he says in a demented tone.He picks up a electric raizor and shaves off my hair.He putts on the wig and hands me a red dress..when I refuse to put it on he slaps me through the face 3 times, I yell in pain and continue to refuse. That's when he turns around and takes a big knife lying on the table and holds it near my neck. My body starts shaking from fear but I still refuse, he makes a small cut on my neck causing me to scream..blood dripping down my neck I still refuse.I don't remember how long I was down there but I do remember the pain, his torture went on for hours until I finally snapped and agreed to wear the dress.He takes me to a bathroom and cleans me up, helps me into the dress and does my make up.I looked down at the body lying in the corner, scared I'll end up like that I obey Mr Flax. 
by know my folks probably know I am missing and the police are looking around for me.Not knowing I am right next door, I act like his wife fooling the police for a very long time. Then One day after a year a man in a brown police car turns up at Mr Flax's house, he sees me and becons me closer, I walk over to him , he whispers in my ear " I know you are not Mrs Flax...please climb into my car and you will be safe" I collapse to the side walk crying tears of happiness.I hug the police officer and climb into the car, Mr Flax arrives back home and sees the officer he runs inside and locks the door.The Officer tries calling Mr Flax from the locked front door but hears a loud gun shot go off in the house.By the time the other officers arrive Mr Flax is dead, he killed himself. Finally I am able to take off the wig and make up and be me again, I am reunited with my folks and everything is back to normal. I asked the officer how he knew I was there the whole time he smiled and said " I have been after Flax for years, when I arrived here I asked around and one of the other neighbours told me of Mr Flax and his wife who just moved in a year ago.that's how I knew where you were, Mr Flax murdered his wife 20 years ago . He abducted and forced other young girls to be his wife until he got tired of them and killed them too. You are one of the lucky ones"
So my folks and I moved to a new neighbour hood , I adopted GoodGrief the cat as he was trying to warn me of Mr Flax and his shed.This time if a neighbour gives me the creeps I will keep away from them because you never know who you neighbour really is.
