Excerpt
The flashback came to Alex now, but he pushed it away. “We killed her!”
Casie quivered. Someone might hear us. Someone else might be hiding here, trying to trap us in a confession. And that will lead us to a lifetime in prison.
“Don’t say it aloud!” Casie warned Alex, panic in her voice.
“Calm down!” he spat back. “I’ll figure it out.”
“What if—”
“Not a word about her. You’re right,” interrupted Alex dismissively, staring at Casie and raising a finger in warning.
Casie went quiet, and together they walked up the stairs to investigate.
The place was so silent they could’ve heard the drop of a pin.
They stood at the stairs’ edge on the second floor, looking around for any sign of danger. Then the entrance downstairs burst open, and rapid air swept into the mansion, blowing out the candles. The doors slammed shut as if someone had pushed them, hard. In the darkness, the silence was broken by the fearful scream of a girl, echoing through the mansion, frightening the couple.
“Casie!”
“Alex!”
“Are you alright?” asked Alex, slowly swinging his arms around to find his wife. “Where are you?”
“I’m fine,” replied Casie, reaching out to find Alex. Her hand brushed his shoulder. “I’m here, behind you.”
Alex turned slowly and grabbed Casie’s hand.
“Why did you scream?”
“I didn’t scream.”
“It’s not a good time to play games, Casie.”
“I’m telling the truth. I didn’t scream.”
“Who did then?”
After struggling for a while, Casie said, “It must be her.”
“Oh, god damn it! Not again, please,” said Alex, grinding his knuckles against his head. “How many times do I have to tell you? We killed her six years ago. She died.”
“If that’s true, what’s happening to us right now? And who is this girl who screamed? Why is she trying to scare us?”
Without arguing further, Casie suddenly broke off into tears.
Alex pulled her to his chest and hugged her.
“I want to return home, right now,” she suggested.
“All right!” said Alex, patting her back, still keeping her tight in his arms. “Let’s go. But stop crying, first.”
Casie separated herself from the hug and wiped off the tears with her fingers. Alex slowly and carefully walked down the stairs; Casie followed, keeping her palm tight in his. As they passed the sofa, they heard a door on the second floor screech open. Alex and Casie squinted up the stairs into the darkness. A girl with a lit candle in her hands walked out of the room and stood at the railing, staring at them.
Nothing except the girl’s bloody face was visible to the couple’s eyes. Casie gaped at the girl, and Alex’s eyes narrowed, a twisted mix of fear and fury roiling across his face.
“Who are you?” he asked. “What do you want?”
The girl did not respond.
Alex let go of Casie’s hand and walked a few steps away from her toward the girl, standing near the table.
