Alex stood to draw his bedroom curtains to try and block out the distractions of the autumn evening. As he did, he noticed a figure move across the empty driveway of next door. The house next door, if you could call it that, was not only quite a way from Alex’s house but was very run down. Nobody ever came to look at it, it was a horrible place.
