Marcus showed each of the friends their rooms. When Willow was walking into her room, Liam followed.

"You don't like Rose, do you?" Liam leaned against the wall.

"Really, how could you tell. Now do you understand why I didn't want to come her this summer?" Willow sat in her bed. At the end of school, Willow's parents had to convince her to go to Rose's house with her friends.

"Come on, we could still have fun. This summer is going to be memorable." Liam convinced her.

"Guess your right." Willow walked towards Liam.

"Now, are we going to talk about that thing you have for James?" Liam smirked.

"What 'thing'?" Willow lied. Ever since last year, Willow has liked James. She always says she doesn't, but Liam has a talent for seeing past Willow's denial.

"Sure. You don't like James." Liam said sarcastically. "Stop lying to me. I'll get the truth out of you."

"Sure you will. You keep telling yourself—" Willow was interrupted by a loud girl's scream.

"What was that?" Liam's eyes shot open with terror and his smug look disappeared.

"That sounded like Scarlett! Come on!" Willow sprinted out. Liam followed. Robert ran out of his room in terror as well.

Willow busted the door open to see James kneeling down next to someone. Scarlett. Willow ran the her side to see Scarlett laying in a puddle of blood. Her blood.

"What happened?" Willow choked on her tears.

"I don't know. I just ran in when I heard her scream." James said in shock.

"Who did this?" Willow mumbled.

"What?" Liam said.

"Who did this?! This couldn't have been an accident and I intend to find out who did this!" Willow got up.

"I don't know if this is important, but I found this blacklight in her hand." James opened up Scarlett's hand.

Willow grabbed the light and started shining it all over the room. She found a trail of footprints leading towards a painting. She ran over and moved the big painting off the wall. There was a huge hallway leading into darkness.

"Well, I know what we're going to do." James walked by Willow's side.
