I walked down the stairs flipping on the light and came down onto the small landing and looked down into the darkness of the basement. The light suddenly flicked off on the landing, and I felt something shove me down. I grunted falling in a heap at the bottom of the stairs. I groaned trying to push myself up, but felt the dark pressure around me keep me from moving.
"Why don't you just leave me alone!?" I shouted and a eerie laugh came through to my ears.
"This is war isn't it dear Jade?" He purred, and I could feel him standing close by me.
"I don't care! Leave me alone!" I shouted.
"Oh don't be like that. We wouldn't want the poor boy to be hurt," He stated, and a faint outline of a 12 year old boy appeared far off.
"Jason!" I screamed reaching out. I felt something step on my fingers and cried out.
"Mom!" Jason shouted.
"If you won't join us, he will," A voice snarled. I watched as dark figures started to drag Jason off.
"No!" I screamed tears running down my face. Laughter filled the area and the pressure left. I felt a gentle hand on my arm, but pulled away.
"Jade I'm sorry," I heard Jake say. I shook my head tears streaming down my face.
