Mike and Lisa decide that now is the time to purchase their first home. They choose a brand-new construction one hour outside of Washington, DC. For as long as they had been together, their dream had been to own a house and the cherry on top was being able to purchase a house that no one else had ever lived in before.
The house starts to go wrong in small ways as soon as they move in. Both attribute these to teething pains. The force that inhabited their new home was something they had no idea existed. a force that required to be acknowledged and heard.
