A house with a history. An old evil.
A decision that will change a family's life forever.
The only thing Barbara Jones wants is to give her sons a normal life, a life she thinks is hers when she moves her family into the pretty Victorian house on the outskirts of town. But after being laid off from her job, Barb sees any chance at normalcy slipping away. She's behind on rent, her seventeen-year-old son is working at a convenience store to help pay the bills instead of studying, and her landlord is threatening to evict her. Barb's life has never been more out of control.
Then the unimaginable happens.
Barb didn't know the house she moved her boys into has a history of violence and ritual murder. She didn't know the entity at the center of that violence never left. At first, Barb can't bring herself to believe the entity is real, but nightly occurrences convince her there is something malevolent in the house. And before long, she finds out what it wants from her.
Would you make a deal with the devil to save your family?
This is a SHORT STORY.
