Like Tommy said it was a beautiful morning.
Tommy stood at the riverbank watching the sunrise above the small town. While he watched the sun coming up, he thought of his mother, and the story she told him about a house here in Riverview. Tommy didn't know what to expect.
Was the house sold, was it empty, big or small he had no idea....
He looked at his watch and decided to head back into town. He would wait there until City Hall opened.
Tommy walked into the lobby
The women behind the reception desk smiled kindly to Tommy as he approached her. He told her he needed the safety deposit box. The lady behind the desk asked Tommy to wait while she called upstairs.
The lady told Tommy to go to the third floor to the department of history.
Tommy walked up the grand stairwell to the thridfloor, at the top of the landing a women was waiting for him.
She waved her hand out to a chair. “Please, sit.”

“Well, Mr. Turner the boxes belong to the first 10 families of Riverview. Are you sure one belongs to you?” Tommy replied “My mother said she had one here.” He didn't understand what the problem was. The lady said “Only your mother can come for the box, she has to sign for it. “She......can’t.” replied Tommy “she died a week ago” with tears in his eyes.” I'm sorry for your loss” the lady said “but without proof I can't help you.”

Tommy thanked the women, he shook her hand and said goodbye.... The women turned white as ghost and her eyes widened..... Tommy asked her what’s wrong and if she was okay... “That........that.....Ring” the women stuttered, “I can't believe it....Where did you get it?”.......
“My mother gave it to me on her deathbed” he said.. “What is your mother’s maiden name?” she asked? “I don't know.? Tommy replied, “she gave me this and said that I would need it.” He told her everything his mother told him..
When Tommy was finish she took him to the basement. There were 10 vaults carved into the wall of the basement. Each vault had a different name except 2 of them. There where 2 vaults with the same name ''PRINCE''
The women walked to one of them and she asked Tommy for the ring.
The vault opened....The vault was huge and full of gold, money and other things. The women handed Tommy a small box. Carved on the box was Dutch Hall. “These are the keys to the house.” she said. “If your mother’s name is written on this piece of paper the women told him, this all belongs to you....
The piece of paper was a family tree and a really big one to.
Tommy looked at it he saw his mother’s name Eliza Turner Prince, next to her name he saw his father’s name Frank Turner, under their names, 1 more name was written... his, Tommy Zachery Turner... “That's me!” He said to the women. “Indeed and according to the tree you’re the last living descendent of the family.”....
Tommy was stunned with what he saw in the vault and the fact he was the last remaining person of his family....
did all of this belonged to him?
''When Tommy walked out of city hall'' he still couldn't believe what just had happend! While Tommy walked to Dutch Hall. His mind went over what he just experienced....
He was rich... how? I can't imagine we were loaded... we lived my entire life in a small country cottage. I got second hand clothes, schoolbooks, shoes. Mom was always looking in the paper for discounts and coupons.....” It didn't make any sense” Tommy said out loud.....
When Tommy arrived at the bottom of the hill, he looked up, he could see the three towers rising into the sky.
Tommy started to walk up the hill, over the crooked path that leads up to the house.
He must admit that the view was amazing as he walks up the hill.
After 10 minutes Tommy arrived at the gate.
It was a old rusty gate and he could barely see it through the plants have overgrown on the wall around the manor.
Tommy walked up to the rusty old gate. At first it refused to open....
What's wrong with it..... Tommy pushed against the gate but still the gate didn't open, he pulled, nothing.
Tommy sat down and leaned against the gate and played with the keys to the house..
Then he realized that the gate must be locked. Tommy jumped up and tried several keys... when one of the keys unlocked the gate, the gate swung outward, pushing some of the plants against the brick wall. Because of the sudden movement of the gate Tommy tumbled backwards and fell.
Tommy stood up and walked slowly down the path that led towards the front door. Half way to the house, Tommy jumped and looked behind him. The gate closed with a squeaking sound followed with a bang
When Tommy reached the front door he hesitated at the door.
Come on Tommy you’re a guy don't be such a coward, the house is empty there's no one else here he told himself. Tommy put the key into the lock and turned it. The front door opened slowly with a screeching sound. Tommy took a step back, It's a old door he thought it's normal that they open like this….

But in the back of his mind he didn't trust it at all.....

Tommy walked to the fire place to warm himself. The house was cold like its appearance, Most of the wallpaper was gone leaving a brick wall visible in some rooms, other rooms used to be decorated with wood paneling but most of the wood has rotted away or the walls are severely damage for some reason. The furniture was also damaged…..
“What was that......I thought I saw someone in the mirror behind me?”

In the back yard Tommy found the garden but not the normal kind of garden, in the garden he found the plant of death, and a money tree. Could be this for real, further he found the normal type of plants. Tommy knew all of the plant because his mother taught him everything about gardening when he was just a little boy. Strangely enough it wasn't neglected the garden was in fantastic condition. How was it possible? The house had been empty for decades according to the women from City Hall. It was getting dark. I work further tomorrow he said to himself He walked back towards the kitchen to get something to drink. “What.......happened......in......here'' Tommy yelled loudly.
Half of the kitchen was burned down. “How?” Tommy replied “ I was just in here an hour ago everything was fine”......
Tommy thought I better check out the rest of the place.. I hope the house is still insured after all this time........ He walked up the grand staircase to other floors to check the rooms there. Everything seemed all right. Tommy reached the attic of the manor, some of the doors were locked and he didn't have a key to open them. I better call a locksmith in the morning. Tommy looked at his watch it was early but he was so tired from the journey so he went to bed. Tommy didn't sleep at all last night the strange noises kept him awake all night.
Tommy went out to see what it was but he couldn't find anything that caused the noises. In the morning he went up to the roof. The roof had a rail around it. So it was save enough to walk around.
His first night was strange for him, he was alone in the big old house.
Tommy walked around the roof and stared over the town. It looked so peacefully from where he stood, so quiet.... he couldn’t imagine why his mother left this house, he watched the sunrise for a while…. Tommy was heading back inside when all of the sudden the air on the roof turned cold as ice.. he froze and looked around he didn't see anything.... it was weird it was early June almost summer and yet the air turned ice cold.
The cold air disappeared as quickly as it came..
Tommy headed back inside, while he walked down the stairs to the first landing he saw a strange green cloud disappearing into thin air..... Tommy really didn't know what to think of all of this. Strange noises in the night the shivers and ice cold air he felt when he was up on the roof.
Tommy glazed out of the window...
Everything crossed his mind after he came to Riverview.
Thinking back about the man he had spoken to, sleeping on a bench near the cemetery. The story the lady told him at City Hall. What he just experienced..... Wait what had the lady at City Hall tell him, what was the lady’s name. He/she knew everything about the history of Dutch Hall. Fenny, Tammy, or was it Brenny. I need a phonebook, maybe they can help me. He thought........
