After the unkown force take over their house they were obligated to move to the other side of the house. The were happy with the arrangement they made for about the chores of the house, but the were missing thing that they needed to be completely ok.
They were constantly hearing every kind of noises until he notice that they have taken their part of the house, so he took Irene´s arm and forced her to run, not even waiting to look back. And that was how they went into the street with nothing but them.
They didn´t make anything to take back their house , the correct thing to do was to fight or confront over the unkown force, they just acted like a cowards and they were homeless.
