Once upon a time, there were two elementary school siblings, Ret and Crenzie.

And everyday, they lived near a mansion where they see nobody come out or in of. Everyone in their neighborhood believed it’s haunted.

Until one day, the siblings decided to investigate the mansion at night.

And because of that, they got lost.

And because of that, they found a ghost and got chased by it.

And because of that, they got separated.

Until finally, they reunited and it was revealed that the ghost was actually an eight-year-old named Michael, who lives in the mansion alone with his parents. Michael thought Crenzie and Ret were burglars. The siblings explained to Michael why they snuck into his home.

And since that day, the siblings realized that they’ve been looking at the back of the mansion this whole time, which explains why they saw nobody come out or in of it. And it’s not haunted.
