The Haunted Mansion (Raddum x xShiro)
4:45 PM - Bisonwood Grove Park, March 21st 2009
It was was nice enough evening, the weather was a fair 57 degrees, the sky hidden by dark clouds and winds strong enough to make the loose branches begin to struggle and fall to the ground. The park was empty aside from one person, Bastion Neinstead, who was pacing around nervously. "Shit, shit, shit..." He grumbled, having lost a bet to some of the other kids earlier today, he had to go into the old, deserted mansion that sat atop Bison Hill, known as Bisonwood Mannor. Nobody knew exactly how old the mansion was, or how long it had been since it last had residents. It was said to be haunted, and Bastion wasn't exactly a brave soul. The only reason he agreed to the bet was because it was with a friend of his, Ashley Withers, if she had lost, Bastion would be snacking on his favorite treat, her grandmother's prized, delicious peanut butter cookies. He would almost do anything for those cookies, and he went too far this time. "I can't do this- Aw, but if i wuss out..." He thought about it, he'd probably never see another of those sweet, delicious peanut butter cookies in his life! It'd be horrible! "What the hell am i going to do?" He questioned, as he continued to pace around.
He stopped, snapping his fingers. "Ahah!" He shouted, figuring out a plan as he pulled his cell phone out of his pocket, flipping it opening and dialing in the number of his most trusted friend, Blake Roberts. He tapped his foot on the ground as he put the phone up to his ear. "She didn't say i couldn't take anybody with me..." He said to himself, feeling slightly cheered up already. Blake was much braver than he was, surely there wouldn't be any problems if he came along. He waited, praying he'd pick up the phone...
