Hallway

 
Chloe and Heidi were not looking forward to visiting Aunt Jean with their mother. They did not like the townhouse. It was ugly, old, and it smelled of something rotten.
Aunt Jean greeted them at the door with hugs and kisses on both cheeks, and led them in. Once inside, they stayed close to their mother so as to not accidentally brush up against the dusty wood paneled walls and furniture, or worse, get caught by the cobwebs that manifested in dark corners around the house.
They followed Aunt Jean down a dimly lit hall where portraits of her ancestors hung. During each visit, she would point out a different portrait and shared a story from her childhood regarding the particular relative. On this occasion, she spoke about Uncle Claude.
