As the group neared the path in the woods, she felt a subtle shift in the atmosphere. Suddenly, a house stood about fifty yards past the tree line, and the bridge, which had been collapsed into the creek moments earlier, appeared to be structurally sound. Aurelia couldn’t contain her feelings any longer.
“Did anyone notice that house appear over there?” she asked.
“Hasn’t it been there the entire time?” Davin replied.
Mike, Greg, and Emmer all threw Aurelia puzzled looks, but before she could respond, the group heard blood-curdling screams coming from the dreary, white house. The Fallen bolted into action. Greg readied his cane while the quintet plowed off the road and into the pristine snow of the timber.
Suddenly, a woman burst from the screen door. “He’s going to kill my babies!” she yelled frantically.
In what must have been minutes—but seemed like seconds—The Fallen closed the distance between them and the panicked woman. She immediately collapsed into Davin’s arms. “Help!” she gasped. “He’s going to kill them!” Her face was sweaty and smeared with grease, and her hair was tangled.
Mike only had to nod, and Greg and Aurelia were at his side. Mike cursed. “What the hell is going on?”
