Aaron wasn’t sure what to think. He had read the book, hoping maybe to understand what was going on with him and seeing all the apparitions that he was seeing. That was no excuse for the man to break into his home though. “What are you doing in my home” he blurted out partially angry and partially scared,
“Let’s go for a ride Mr Stimple and I will explain to you why the Paranormal Investigation Agency has sent me to see you.” and then Rog started for the door.
“Paranormal Investigation….Wait you work for them. Who are these people and what do they want with me.” Aaron said as he followed Roger out the door and to his truck.
His curiosity out weighing his anger, Aaron got into the truck with Roger. Just as his door was closed Roger sped off, kicking up rocks and sand as his truck spun around to head out the drive way and down the road. Taking turns at break neck speed and dust, Aaron had lost his bearings and was not sure where they were or where they were going. After one final turn and a slam stop that created a dust storm that he could not see through, Aaron jumped out of the truck yelling at Rog, “are you trying it kill us, you drive like a maniac.” was all he could get out.
Roger calmly got out of the truck and walked over to Aaron, “do you know where we are”
Aaron looked both angry and confused as he looked around and realized that they were on the construction site of Camden Estates. “I never wanted to see this place again, it was driving me crazy. I was seeing things that should not be there.” he said angrily, “why have you brought me here”
“I brought you here because this is where it started for you and I want you to see that you are not going crazy” said Rog
Still angry, Aaron did not notice the chill on the back of his neck. They argued with such vitriol that they didn’t notice the child standing between them, until the unforeseen happened. The child floated up between the two men, as they saw him they both stopped and watched as his face started to fade and the skin started to fall off. Then the boy said simply, “have you seen my mom. I think I am lost ?”. He then floated back down and ran off into the woods.
Aaron looked at Rog and realized that he was not the only one who saw the ghost boy. “What is going on here?” was all he could muster.
“That is what we are here to find out Mr Stimple”
