The house for rent was cheep. A bargain, water and utilities would be paid for by the land lord. The walls were covered in fresh paint. There was no mold in the bathrooms. No mice or cockroaches that she had seen. “What’s the catch?” asked Jordan suspiciously looking around the small two bedroom home. She set the cat carrier down carefully.

The land lady looked shocked. She was a middle-aged woman with slightly graying light brown hair. She looked kindly enough and her ten-year-old son was clinging to her leg. “No catch.” she said convincingly. “We just need someone to take care of the house is all.” Her son hid his face in his mothers leg.

“Look, I’ve lived with my parents long enough to know if it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.” Jordan said suspiciously. “So what’s wrong with the place? What’s the catch?”

The landlady sighed. “The last person who lived here killed himself.” she said sadly. “It doesn’t look well to the superstitious. So we had to make this place seem perfect.”

Jordan smiled. “I’m not superstitious.” she said. She shook hands with the woman. “I’ll take it.”

She sat back smiling at her new surroundings, this place was perfect. It was directly between work and the community college, it was small enough for just her to live in but large enough to be comfortable, but most importantly it wasn’t her parents house. She unpacked her clothes, bed linens, books and movies. They were the only things she had brought with her, her furniture would be moved in tomorrow.

“It’s not an apartment in Tokyo, or a little house in Sydney. My window doesn’t look out over the city of Lyon, and I’m certainly not going to be hearing any Irish music. Still, it’s mine.” She told herself. She reminded herself that she would still see those places someday, just because she was still stuck in Ohio didn’t mean she would be there forever.

She had charted out her travel plans for years. A lot of the marks on her world map were placed around Europe but Japan and Australia were on the list as well as Alaska and Egypt. Her parents had rolled their eyes and told he she was crazy and that she would never leave Ohio. She had always smiled coyly and replied “watch me.”

Maybe that was it, her desire to travel. Or it could have been her bad grades or the fact that she was never as perfect as her younger sister. Maybe it was her anger issues. Whatever it was she had always felt that her parents were never quite pleased with her. “It doesn’t matter anymore.” she smiled, “You never have to go back to that house, this is home now.” suddenly Jordan felt very lonely. The silence in the house was deafening. “You’ll get used to it.” she reassured herself.

Jordan turned on the shower, “my shower.” she smiled. It was nice, having something that was just hers. She closed her eyes and tipped her head back in the extremely hot water. She was in to much bliss to notice the shadow that crossed the bathroom at that moment.

When she was finished she popped her favorite DVD into her laptop and settled into her sleeping bag on the living room floor. Tomorrow night she would sleep in her bed, in her bedroom, in her house. Her cat purring beside her, The Phantom of the Opera with it’s haunting music and the exciting notion that life was going to be better for her helped her drift slowly into deep, peaceful sleep.

Molly, Jordan’s cat, did not sleep well that night. She remained alert and tense, curled up next to her human. She watched shadow shift and distort. Something was moving in the house, something sinister and horrifying. It lurked into the room, silently. Hair stood on end on Molly’s haunches as she watched the thing drag itself into the room, she hissed and it disappeared down the dark hall. Molly stood on her human’s chest, feeling the slow rhythm of her breathing. The cat did not dare leave that spot for the rest of the night.
