Chapter 2: First Family

I appeared inside the mansion, with lit candles in a foyer. I looked around and saw everything it had when I first entered the mansion alone but before the time travel. Professor E.Gadd's mission words repeated in my head, "witness how the families died and report to me". A chill went down my spine as I go up the stairs and opened the door to my left. A hallway appears towards me and four doors were in their own spaces. I walked slowly as I heard two kids playing a game in the room next to me. I pull out my Gameboy Horror and call E.Gadd, "Hey Leonard, how was the travel?" He asked me. "It went fine, how should I approach the family?" I asked him. "You are part of the first family's tree, as they see you," he paused for a bit, "So that means you're the second cousin to Baby Chauncey,And the twins, Henry and Orvile," he paused again,"To. Lydia and Nevile, second Nephew". "Thank you E.Gadd," I told him as I shut off the Gameboy Horror. I knock the door to the Twins room and I waited for them to answer. As five minutes pass, nothing happens so I Knock again and this time, Aunt Lydia bursted out the door, her face filled with grief and tears, "My twins..." she whimpered as Uncle Nevile opened the door from his reading room. "Lydia what's wrong?" He asked in a worried tone. "They're dead..." she murmured so softly that the mice in the walls could  hear it. Uncle Nevile's jaw dropped and he ran into the twins room, opening the boxes they were hiding in when they were playing hide and seek. Two dead children in the chest as I heard Uncle Nevile cry in pain. I go out the hall and into a room that was empty and sit in the cot I brought for the trip. "Damn...this is intense already," I silenty told myself, feeling the pain of the family. Later that night, when I was half way asleep from sleep, I heard faint crying in Chauncey's room. Tired, I got up from the the cot and opened the door and went to Chauncey's room. As I entered his room, the cries seem to have died down and Chauncey looked fast asleep in his crib. "He probably had a baby nightmare," I told myself as I headed back to my room. That same morning, I woke up to a wail from Aunt Lydia, and Uncle Nevile's slippers goingt thump thump on the floor. I check to see what happened by going to them as Lydia was cradling Chauncey, he still looked asleep even from the loud shriek Aunt Lydia made, but something felt off... Chauncey looked exactly the same as I checked on him last night. To break the ice and to see if my assumption was right, I asked "Aunt Lydia, I-is Chauncey ok?" I stuttered as She shook her head, whimpering as well. My face turned pale, "N-no... w-why did such a young child die so young and quickly?.." she cried as I headed back to the room, locking myself in. "Twins died from a hide and seek accident, or Suffocation. Then Chauncey from, A high fever?" I asked myself as It started raining outside and it became dark. Thunder rumbled outside and it was the first thing that brought me back to the world I was in. "O-oh god no...A-aunt Lydia...she's next!" I panicked in my head as I ran out my room and headed to her door. I was too late, the lightning struck down by the window and the loud thunder threw me off guard. I felt dizzy, and disoriented but then the gurgles were heard. As the door was opened, I saw Aunt Lydia and ran to her side, her throat slashed open by glass from the window. "Uncle Nevile!!!" I screamed as he ran to the room. "N-no!!! L-lydia!!" He cried out as he went to her side as well. She was trying to mutter something but she died in Nevile's arms. She bled out. Uncle Nevile cried as I hugged him tightly. Even if I wasn't related by blood to these people, I still felt their pain.
"Leo, my dear nephew, all is lost for us, I-i can't do this.." Uncle Nevile was losing his sanity as he was rocking in his chair, he didn't look so good. His face was a pale white, and his eyes had bags. "U-uncle Nevile...i-i came at the worst possible time-" I was interrupted by him. "Hush now...go on and get back to bed, I-ill see you in the morning," he sighed as he sent me back to my room. As I exit the room, the Gameboy Horror went off as E.Gadd was on the other end. "Leonard, you only have until 12pm tomorrow, if you still haven't gotten all the reports, make it quick!" He tells me as I nod and turned off the Horror. I walked down the dimmly lit hall, and touched my doorknob, and opened the door. The cot was waiting for me as Uncle Nevile's rocking chair was rocking softly. I laid down, trying to sleep, his rocking was soothing my emotions as I drifted off to sleep...
I woke up in the early morning as the rocking stopped, I assumed Uncle Nevile probably got off the chair as I got up and knocked the door to his Study. "U-uncle Nevile?.." I nervously murmur as the door gave away and opened. I stumbled and saw him still in his chair, his arms slung and a book in his hand. "U-uncle N-n-n" I stutter, approaching the body. At a closer inspection, there laid a bottle of poison. I gasped, Uncle Nevile couldn't take the grief anymore. He poisoned himself last night. Tears were forming in my eyes, I ran to my room and called E.Gadd. He picked up, "E.G-gadd i-im ready to head back..." I sighed as I teleported back to the Lab...
