After a long ride the family finally arrived at an old sign reading "Welcome to Virginia". They car drove down a long driveway covered by eerie trees, and when they finally reached the end a large white victorian home of about 100 years in age stood before them. Bella emptied her boxes out of the car and opened the large creaky door leading into the home.
  • Falling Action
  • During the story, Bella finds herself at a conflict with her emotions. Bella isn't sure whether or not she should continue looking for her father's murderer or if she should just let it go and live her life. As the story continues you'll read more about her decisions and the obstacles she faces mentally to get through them.
  • Resolution
  • After emptying her bins in her room, Bella decides to walk downstairs to explore the home. As she walks through the shabby rooms, she enters the kitchen with mold growing on the walls and the paint falling off. Bella asks her mom "Mom, can I go check out the basement"? Agravated and stressed Nancy replied "No, Bella how many times do I have to tell you there is nothing special down there." Bella replied glumly "ok" and headed back upstairs where she sat up until she saw her mother's light flicker off and everyone was asleep. Bella cautiously tip-toed down the grand staircase and down a narrow hallway leading to the basement door. Yet before she could open it, her sister Anna intruded. Bella acted as though nothing was wrong and sent Anna away, she then continued on her journey down the stairs. As soon as she reached the landing, Bella fell right on her face. While brushing the dust from her shirt, Bella noticed she'd tripped on a nail head, and when she went to go pick it up the whole floor came up unveiling a trap door. Hesitantly, Bella followed the ladder leading into a long narrow hallway and then a small door. The door opened to a quaint room with a mattress and boxes full of newspapers. Bella opened one notebook titled "For Real Murderer's Only" the book was about missing /kidnapped kids. Intrigued, Bella read the book throughout the night until she fell asleep. But when she awoke she wasn't the same.
  • Bella's realization of her emotions was now clear, she decided her father's death was in the past, and she couldn't do anything about it...so she moved on. Yet, Bella's version of moving on was different than others. Instead of taking on new roles in her life, Bella decided to try and get revenge for her father's death and she didn't care how. Bella spent weeks watching and stalking her neighbors. One in particular caught her attention, an old man who resembled santa clause. She watched the old man until she finally got the guts to go talk to him, and when she did they instantly became friends. The man resembled a grandfather figure to Bella , and often reminded her of her father.
  • One day, while walking with the old man Bella began to recognize his face. The man's face was very familiar but Bella couldn't put her finger on just who it was. So Bella spent days observing the man's wrinkled face and scars until one day it came to her. "YOU" she shouted in disgust as she realized the man was her father's murderer. Kicking and screaming Bella slapped, punched, and bit the old man but couldn't hurt him. Then the old man said, “You always were wise, my dear little girl, but it seems you’ve been fooled. For that was my notebook you so curiously read and for that I can never forgive you. Only real murderers have permission to read about my brilliance, therefore you’ll never be able to hurt me in any way, neither will anyone ever believe your story since you cursed yourself when opening the notebook.” The man dissapeared leaving Bella with chills crawling up her spine.
