It was May 1994 and summer was on the way, I couldn't wait as this year Jamal one of my friends that I grew up with in my street was old enough to drive and we were going to go to the beach and everything but then something happened, my mom was working in the local super market and it wasn't exactly great pay but it was keeping us by and suddenly the super market decided that they had employed to much staff and that she was one ...read more.


Any ways Christmas wasn't far away and I needed the job so I called up Tristan my working partner and told him and explained to him about the mansion he signalled ok and we started to prepare for this mysterious hunt.

The End. ...read more.
