...dunno...I forgot.

Once upon a time, there was an old house that was rumored to be cursed by the elders of the town. It was said that whoever entered would never exit. A young group of kids were curious about the house and decided to go see if the rumors were real or fake. Before the kids could go into the house, a young policeman ran after them and chased them away. The group consisted of four kids, Henry, Wilson, Jake and Clara. They were all freshman at their local high school and met through the Occult Club.

The next day afterschool, the four friends held a meeting regarding the mysterious rumors of the house. Jake being the president of the Occult Club said, “Let’s explore it.” The vice president, Clara pushed down her glasses until they fell onto the floor and replied with, “Are you trying to get us in trouble with our parents again?” Newer to the club and a bit chubby, Wilson asked, “Are there going to be snacks?” Jake patted Wilson on the back and laughed before saying, “Yeah bud. Let’s get some snacks.” Clara looked at the two with a murderous expression and the boys looked down at their feet. Henry walked into the clubroom late and said, “So are we going to explore the house or what? I have a plan-.” Clara gritted her teeth as her face chanced from a golden tan to a bright red. “You’re late again, Henry!” Henry brushed off Clara’s comment, paying her no attention and said to Wilson, “Hey bud. How are you enjoying the club?” Jake patted Clara on the back and sighed. He then said, “Alright! Let’s do it! Now what’s the plan?”

Henry was naturally good with creating solutions for problems. He was formerly the head of the student council in middle school. “Here’s what we do.” Henry pulled a rolled-up map out of his backpack and laid it flat on the table in the middle of the clubroom. The other three grabbed chairs and scooted near the table and watched eagerly. “This here is our neighborhood.” Henry pointed at a marked spot on the map. “We’re here. So to get to-.” His finger slid from the first point to another. “-here. This is the house we’ll be going to. But before that, we have to deal with security.” Henry grabbed a few toy soldiers out of his pocket and placed them in certain spots surrounding the house. “There will be patrol so we need to go during the night. So this has to be on the weekend. And we need to be as stealthy as possible.” Henry wrapped his arm around Wilson’s neck. “Hey bud. I recall you saying your father is the chief of security here. I’ll need your help for this plan to work.” Henry grinned and gave Jake a suspicious glance. Wilson looked at Clara cluelessly and Clara face palmed herself. “This will never work.” She mumbled.

The very next Friday night, the four were inside the house. “I’m…in awe.” Clara mumbled in relief. She continued with, “Now what?” Jake gave Clara a serious facial expression that caused her to blush. He stared into her eyes before saying, “We are here for one reason.” Jake called the group into a circle and looked at each one of them while saying, “We are here to uncover the rumor of this house. Now let’s split into two groups. The first will explore upstairs and the other will explore the basement.” Wilson interrupted and asked, “What about the main floor?” Jake replied with, “There’s never anything important on the main floor. Our best bet is to check the places people fear of looking. So, I’ll go to the attic with Clara. Henry, escort Wilson to the basement. And remember to use your walkie-talkie if anything suspicious happens. We can’t make too many noise to alarm outside security.” The duos went their separate ways and started their investigations.
