Trista screamed when someone touched her. "Oh for Autumn's sake, relax, it's just me." Trista could see the Autumn Queen and hugged her
so tight Leaf could hardly breathe. "Ok, ok, you're not alone, it's spooky as hell in here and now maybe we should leave here like your ethereal
friend told you to do. Yes?" "Leaf you are right about a portal. I have seen two spirit figures in here, but surely someone lives here. There are no
cobwebs anywhere and everything is well kept both inside and out. We can't just leave! My people have been disappearing and we need to find out what
happened to them!"
Leaf rolled her eyes. "I knew you were going to be trouble the minute I saw you. If you stay here, surely you will end up missing like all the rest.
Is that what you want? I can't stay here with you, I don't belong inside buildings, I belong out in nature and there are things I must attend to."
Trista grabbed Leaf's arm. "No, you can't just leave me here like this alone and...afraid." The Autumn Queen laughed. "Good act, but not good enough
kiddo. If you were afraid, you would have left after the first ghost appeared. You would have left after seeing the crazy lady who turned out to be a
ghost as well. You don't run from ghosts and you don't run from crazy, so that means only one thing."
"And what might that be?" asked Trista. "It means that YOU are the crazy one! Now let's go." Strange sounds echoed throughout the house, whispers,
screams and things crashing and falling all around them. "Are you scared now?" asked Leaf. Trista clung to Leaf. "Yes! But...we can't leave! Not once
have you tried to help the people of the forest. Why is that?" she demanded. The Autumn Queen sighed. "I don't really like people very much and it's
not my job to make sure they don't enter places they shouldn't be entering. They have minds of their own and refuse to use them sometimes. It kind of
gets on my nerves, like you're doing right now."
