‘So, is this house haunted?’ asked Mosaic, as he stood outside the kitchen door.
‘Indeed, no!’ Doctor Pax shuddered.
‘Of course, it is!’ argued Mosaic. ‘A hundred years ago, the former owner built the house on a disused chalk mine. He fell in love with a local beauty, but she was already married, so he used an underground tunnel to visit her at night. Her husband found out and banished her to a neighbouring town. From then on, she lived in a caravan amongst a field of wheat, selling sprigs of heather, and reading tea leaves. Of course.’
‘Stop that nonsense!’ chuckled Doctor Pax. Then he watched as Haig strode inside the kitchen to shouts of delight.
To start with, Mrs Tiffin held him in a close embrace. ‘Master Haig, what a lovely surprise. Are you home for good?’
‘I certainly am! In any case, I got fed up with eating beans on toast every night.’
Then Haig kissed Mrs P full on the lips which made her blush ‘You haven’t aged one bit.’
Finally, he shook Spud by the hand. ‘How lovely to see you again.’
Right then, Doctor Pax heard a squeal from behind just as strong arms shoved him out of the way. When Matron charged inside the kitchen, she swept everyone from her path. ‘Haig, my dear, dear boy,’ she cried.
‘They are like mother and son,’ whispered Doctor Pax, after he regained his balance, then watched fondly as Matron embraced his son. ‘And I wouldn’t have it any other way.’
When he left Haig to meet and greet all the staff, Doctor Pax strode over to a plain wooden door in

Vaughan did not wait for her to say another word. He scooped her into his arms and took off for the castle. The young midwife trainee had been on the beach, too, and rushed off, as did Audra, Una, Travana, and Ina. Faye wanted them all present to help.
He took a sip of water to rid his torrid throat and began to speak. “Love I am sorry, about everything. You clean this house and make our dinners. You watch our son and most of all you support me any time I need it. You did not deserve the cruel things I said to you. I am truly sorry.” Mary Ann felt something ping at her heart, she almost wanted to forgive him but Henry did not stop there. “I know you must of have felt alone and scared when I pushed you away but you know how I am with work. The other officers will mock me for having a wild wife and-”
*Slam*. The door shuts. The room was silent, you could hear a pin drop. Leah left and I heard the car start up. We’ve never gotten in a fight like this. Tears started streaming down my face. The tears started streaming down my face harder and harder by the second. AGHHHHH I screamed. I slowly got up from the table the chair squeaking making the same sound it made when Leah left. WOOSH. I think that was the fastest I’ve EVER turned around. I saw a small shadow. Nobody else was home. but there was still a shadow? I walked around the corner…nothing. I ran upstairs and WOOSH again. I checked my bedroom and Leah’s bedroom. There was nothing in there.
I made my way across the field, Finn following close behind me. When we reached the old shed we found the padlock that was supposed to keep the door locked shut had already been cut clean off. I looked at Finn who nodded slightly. Together we opened the old door and entered the shed.
“You will disregard that order,” The King shouted in a vicious tone, startling everyone in the room. “Uncle, I’m fine,” he assures him, speaking in a calmer voice than before. “I do not see the need for concern.”
“Oh, don’t worry about it, son,” Ernest said as Phillie then headed off into another room of the house to grab a tissue for her imbued eyes. “She just still gets really emotional over what happened to him, is all. Neil was our only child and his death, and then disfigurement, is a lot for her to bear.”
The sun was high in the sky, gleaming down on us. The air was breezy, but not cold. The day was ordinary, or so it seemed. But what was out of place? That would be my brother, the only person who could possibly get himself into such a situation, with his impossible ability to almost die, but just miss the mark. As he sat there on the ground with his back to us, legs sprawled out in front of him, we didn’t even realize that there was anything wrong. Hold on a second. Let’s rewind this just a little.
The doctor has strength of observation when he describes the mother as, “A big startled-looking big, very clean and apologetic,” and the child as “Fully dressed.” Also, he does not forget to report their acts when he says, “The child was fairly eating me up.”
Gawain dropped his arm around Lionel’s shoulder. “I, Sir Gawain, am in love with my wife and son, and wish such good fortune on you, one of my best friends. That’s all. So let’s not grow terse, prickly, or bizarre.”
As Mauricio slid his back along the cold chamber and the doctor locked the gate behind him, as he heard the police arriving on scene. Suddenly the doctor sprang into action and ran up the stairs toward the officers A calming reassurance passed over Mauricio and he began to think of how much he loved his boring life at home. He missed his mom, dad, and younger sister, Ella. He thought of hugging them in a warm
“Percival, don’t say that. I’ve missed you so much.” Supporting her gently rounded belly, she flounced to the door and pushed it closed. She leaned her back against the wood so Percival could not open it again unless he shoved her aside. He might have been furious at the sight of her, but he was not about to abuse a woman.
Jealousy crept through my body when my parents told me that they were going to dinner in the Willis Tower. Who wouldn’t want to eat on an upper floor of the formerly world’s tallest building? My brother and I waved them goodbye as they pulled out of the driveway. I walked upstairs to my room and opened YouTube on my computer. Nothing seemed amiss.
