He’d seen families destroyed by drugs, alcoholism, and hopelessness. Who knew which of these demons had robbed these houses of their joy. Danny and Erik moved past an abandoned house with what was once a blue door. It was now peeled and dirty, its knocker hanging on by one screw, mocking itself. The stairs leading to the place were stone, but the middle steps were broken, caved in on themselves, a gaping maw in the ascension. For some reason, that sent a chill up Danny’s back. Next to the house with the blue door was another house, better-looking and definitely inhabited.

He had it pointed at the bleeding girl. He saw Danny and both men froze. Slowly, the leader stood up. He looked at Danny quickly then his eyes darted back to the girl.
