Jim Gaunter is transferred back to his home state of Michigan and has set his family up in a little house in Southgate. It isnt long before his wife Sarah and daughters thirteen year old Riley and five year old Suzanne start to notice that perhaps they are not the only occupants of the house. The neighbors seem unfriendly to Sarah, but she thinks that perhaps its just that she had gotten used to the southern hospitality of their years living in Tennessee. Riley notices strange things happening in the basement, but she does not want to complain since she wanted to set up her bedroom there. She was also turning thirteen soon and does not want to look like a baby who is afraid of the dark. This story is based on a true experience by the author and yes, sometimes things do go bump in the night.
