A few years ago, we were visiting our parents in New Hampshire. My brother and I were on the way to a family reunion there, and we stopped by their house to say hello and to pick up some gifts. We pulled into a driveway and, at first, it looked like a typical home. It was a house with some nice yards and a great lawn, but there was one thing that stood out. The front porch was missing.
That thing standing out was the front porch. It was the porch that had been gone since the old owners left. It was gone for a reason. And that reason was for one reason only.
The reason is one that we don’t know yet. But we do now: It was going to be the house’s birthday party. We didn’t ask. We didn’t ask because we didn’t know. We didn’t ask because it was a secret. Our parents told us that they couldn’t tell us because the house was empty. The house was empty because the house was no longer theirs.
It was the anniversary of the owners death. An event that, at the time, appeared to have no connection to the house. Our parents were very upset by this, and they didn’t know what to do. They decided to make sure that this birthday party would never happen again. We never asked the kids how they felt because we were sure they didn’t want to tell us.
The most recent version of the house was built in the 40s, when the house had a lot of power. Most of the rooms are now dark, and we only get to see the kitchen, which is actually used as an office. On the other hand, the house’s backyard is still very much open, and has a pool. Even though it wasn’t a house when we were growing up, it still had a lot of history.
In other news, the kids are still a bit lost in the woods, and when we go to find them, they run off. We have to track them down again, but this time with ropes. At this point it seems like they just want to make sure we get back home safely. At least this time we got to see a lot more of the house.
The kids were just trying to make sure that we got back home safe. This time we got to see the whole house, instead of just the part we wanted to go to. In other news, they are still missing, but I suppose we can’t really say it was them. But at least they are in the woods, so hopefully they will be back soon.
Well we were just in the woods. So we can’t blame them for not returning, but I suppose they will be back soon.
Of course ddo the missing party was only supposed to be a short scene, but we were still excited to see the house. In fact, the whole scene is very exciting because we know what is going to happen. We know that we are not just going to see a house full of orphans and we know that Colt is going to show up. So we were really excited to see the house full of orphans.
