Inside a Haunted House (Hour 2)

by April | Score: 3100

Now, should I make it supernatural? I could have aliens invade Earth. But that would be too supernatural. I could make a romantic story. Except I hate romance. I could add a miserable firefighter who loves in love with the person who lost the phone number and then helps her find it and they're dating in the end. But again, I don't want to do something romantic in any way. That's when it hit me. I knew the perfect story. I began saying it aloud to remember it more clearly and write it down when I got home.
  "All right ma'am," the doctor said holding a baby in his arms. "Here's your son."
  The patient gasped and tears filled her eyes. She took the baby in her arms and cradled him. He was beautiful. 
  Many years later, the baby by was now a grown teenager of 14. It was morning and he was eating cereal while scrolling through his phone. Suddenly, someone came up to him from behind and snatched the phone off his hand.
  "No phones in the table, Tony," the voice said.
  Tony rolled his eyes and continued eating.
  "I have deliveries to deliver-"
  "No way! You deliver deliveries?" Tony asked sarcastically.
  "I'll be home late," the voice continued placing boxes of cookies in little Christmas boxes with a ribbon.
  "So I'll be in here with all the doors locked and not open the door to anyone," Tony said dully. "I'm 14, I can take care of myself."
  "Sure, keep telling yourself that," the voice replied.
  "Imma be late," Tony said shoving the last spoonfuls into his mouth and grabbing his backpack. "Bye, Leslie."
