Mystery shrouded the vacant house at the end of the block.
According to the fifteen-year-old newspaper article I found while researching for a term paper, the place belonged to a young couple. One night someone broke in and savagely gutted Mrs. Jenson in her eighth month.
I asked my parents about it.
“Mr. Jenson hung himself,” said Dad. “Pity, they never found the baby.”
Mom flinched. “Glad they’re finally tearing that eyesore down.”
Dad’s spectral smile vanished and Mom turned ice-white when I presented them with the yellowed clipping and a photo of Mrs. Jenson who could’ve been my twin.
