The One Week Challenge is On! - post author Don

It’s close to midnight in a seemingly ordinary suburban home, and the annual Halloween party is over. But for this particular couple, the clean-up is only the beginning of their misfortune. For after the floors are swept and the last dish is washed, a new nightmare awaits.

A Scream is heard. It could be loud. It could be barely audible. But one thing is certain – it came from inside the house. Oh, another thing is certain, too…

Only one of them heard it.
