“Don’t worry too much about it. He hasn’t given me any problems and he has been generally kind to me Mom. He’s good.” Mom nodded and turned away from me to check on the water.
“It’s almost 7:30, do you have everything ready? As soon as your Father gets back with the car we’ll be going so James is going to have to stay here.” She stated matter-of-factly but I could tell she was a little scared by her hands shaking the tiniest bit. I smiled.
“Well, of course he’s going to stay here, right James?” I turned to look at him and he gave me a thumbs up. I laughed and didn’t catch the smile that played on Mom’s lips when she heard it.
“Would you grab me some plates from a box in the living room? Not the expensive ones, but the everyday ones.” Mom asked as she opened one of the cupboards. I stood up and nodded.
“Alright.” I headed through the dining room but paused to really look at it. It was quite a large room if I thought about it, but that was probably because it was an inn. “Hey, Mom?” I called.
“Yes Jun?” She answered.
“Are you and Dad going to make this into an inn again?” She paused what she was doing.
“I don’t know. Why are you asking?” I shrugged to her question.
“I don’t know. Just thinking this is a lot of space and even though a lot of people don’t come through here it’d be a lot safer to have them stay here then with some creep. Oh, and if that does happen, close off room 10 to people. We don’t want others to die because a serial killer lives there.” Mom nearly dropped the plant pot she was holding in her hands.
“What? How do you know that Jun?” I turned back to stare into her eyes.
“I saw him hang a young girl. He tried to come after me but I closed the door, thus stopping him. I can put a warding spell up on the door and close it so that no one can get in or out if you want me to, but I’ll have to do that after I get home from school. Oh, do you have my spirit glasses Mom?” She pointed to the living room.
