Wayward House

Tessa was a normal girl. Popular, pretty, the star on the dance team. It's not what she wanted though, it never was. Thats how that night happened. The night that changed it all. Nothing would be the same. Death, love, hatred, and hauntings. Will you stay for Tessas story or will it be too much?

1. Meeting the house

Tessa was a normal girl. Popular, pretty, the star on the dance team. It's not what she wanted though, it never was. Thats how that night happened. The night that changed it all. Nothing would be the same. Death, love, hatred, and hauntings. Will you stay for Tessas story or will it be too much? 

 

Tessa 
"Johnathon! No please! Please don't hurt me!" My brothers burning body walks to me slowly his flesh tearing away with every step. "This is your fault!" I try to turn and run but I can't. I'm stuck staring once again. "Please! Jonathon it's me Tess! Your sister! Please don't do this!" It's as if he wants to torment me forever. Slowly walking when he can run faster than anything seen before. As soon as he gets close to me he wraps his hand around my throat picking me up and slamming me against the wall. I can feel the fire starting to consume and then... I slam out of bed a cold sweat dripping down my face. I look around and nothing. Everythings pitch black. It feels so real. More real everytime.

"Tessa you don't have to do this." As I look out the window My friend begs me to stay with him. I know I can't though. This is the only way. "Max... You know I have to go. This is my only chance to stop this. I have to figure out why Johnathon will not move on. He says it was my fault. I have to know why, and the only way I can find out is going to the Wayward house." Max's grip tightens on the steering wheel and he shakes his head. "People don't come out of there Tessa. There has been many reportings of missing people that have said they were going up here." I look out the window again. "There are many people who go missing everyday. There could be multiple reasons for those disappearances." After I say this theres silence. Fifteen minutes go by and it seems the silence is so thick it wants to strangle me. Thats when I see it. The house that everyone in this town is so scared of. "It's quite beautiful... Don't you think Max?" Max scoffs. "Quite terrifying this thing is one snowflake away from falling to the ground. The whole thing looks like it could cave in and be gone forever and no one would care. It would just be gone." I sigh. "Max..... Please just-" He cuts me off. "No Tessa. I know what you're going to say. I don't understand it. I truly don't, but that may be because I have not had these problems. I will trust you though and I'm going to stay right out here and wait for you. I won't leave. I love you." I can feel myself starting to tear up. "I love you too, you are such a great friend Max... Thank you for bringing me here." Max looks out the window. "Yeah.. I'm a great... friend. You're sure you don't want me to go with you?" I get out of the car. "You know I have to do this alone." and with that I shut the door and make my way up to the house. I look back at the car and see Max watching me intently. I know now that if I don't go I will never go in. Taking a deep breath in I walk up the cement steps slowly reaching the door I turn the knob and push. The door swings open and I step inside not once looking back. 

                   ___________

The door swings freely behind me as I take another step in. It closes and thats the only time I let myself glance back. Then I hear the sounds of footsteps and giggling. I turn quickly. "Hello?" I call out but nothing. I take a step forward and feel something crush under my foot. Looking down I see it's a toy armyman. Theres a whole trail of them leading up to the elegantly beautiful stairwell. I glance around before following the trail of toys. There are hutches with beautiful antiques standing on one side of the wall and beautiful paintings everywhere. I'm not sure what I expected. Blood oozing from the wall spiderwebs everywhere? No this place was spotless. As I walk up the stairs following the toy trail it seems like the house gets more magnificent. "Stop! Who are you?" I stop dead in my tracks jerking my head toward the voice I see a little boy. "I said who are you!" I turn to quickly get down the stairs but he's blocking my way once again. I turn again missing the step and fall. As I'm falling I see all the faces. Five of them. Youngest to old they all stare at me and then everything goes black. 

                   ___________

I shoot out of bed having that horrific dream again. "Oh... It was all a dream... This is not real I'm in my bed at home. I'm in my bed at-" Pulling at the sheets I notice I'm in a room I've never seen before. "Oh good you're awake!" I jump pulling the sheets with me. "Who.. Who are you?" I ask looking at the girl that could be my age maybe younger. She looks at me with pity. "Oh dear how rude of me. I am Chloe Wayward. You had a very nasty fall are you sure you are okay?" She puts a hand out to feel my face but I flinch and she pulls it back quickly. "I.. I'm fine I. I just" I stammer trying to get my words out. Chloe takes a few steps back distancing herself from me. "I'm sorry I frightened you.." I quickly stand. "No! It's not that! You. You're just so beautiful!" Chloe looks taken back. Blushing furiously she smiles. "You have me at an advantage... May I ask you your name?" I smile back at her. "I'm Tessa I'm sorry for scaring you. This has to be all a mistake I didn't know someone actually lived here! We were told it was haunted and.." I trail off noticing her face falling. "Tessa please let me explain this to you. I AM the Chloe WAYWARD" I stare at her. This girl is Chloe Wayward. It hits me then. Chloe is one of the Wayward childrens name! "But... You do not look dead." She turns from me. "I may not. However, I am very... as you put it dead. I died with this house and my siblings it is true." Chloe can only be 5'6. She has beautiful brown hair that reaches down to the middle of her back that is braided perfectly. She has an even more beautiful face. She does not look threatening at all and she is the terrifying ghost that haunts this place? The I think back. The little boy the six faces. "Wait. The four others.. They're.. They're so young." Chloe turns to me. "Yes my siblings are young just as I am. Too young to be deceased. I am twenty-three the eldest. Then there is Shay who is fifteen, Joshua who is twelve, Frankie who is 9, and Benjamin who is seven. Although I know I am not alive they all believe they are and that is how I want it to stay. Do you understand?" I nod my head. "Yes.. You have to understand I didn't come to out you to the others. It's my brother, I came to get answers as to why he still haunts me." Chloe takes a deep breath and I can't help but wonder why she puts on the act as to breathe and go as if everything is normal. Turning to me she takes my hand and leads me to the closet  on the far side of the room. "Please before you go down to meet my family change into something more fitting. Opening the door I see multiple dressed all beautiful and ornate. They hang untouched by anything. "They.. Are beautiful but I can't take these. I don't have the money to pay you and well I wouldn't feel right." Chloe laughs at me. "For what reason would I ever need money for and you will look amazing in these dresses! Please make my day I haven't done a make over in many years."
