Mrs. Helms was some kind of hoarder, stacks of newspapers and magazines lined the halls, jars of batteries and soda tabs filled every tabletop, containers of cleaning solvents and nail polish remover, balls of yarn, too many for a cat.  Just what was she saving this all for anyway? Alex just hoped he could get in, find his friend Joseph, and they could both get out alive. Urban legends around town said this old woman was a witch. Alex wished his sister would have told him that before him and his friends accidentally tortured the old witch’s cat to death.
