Tree Dreaming

Death House?

I have been doing the Zombies, Run! 5K training program, and I've been walking/running around a block in my neighborhood. There is this one house with a bunch of broken toys on the lawn, and I used to see a bunch of kids playing out on the lawn all the time, but now every time I walk by, it's still. There's also a nasty smell that comes from the house, sour and gross, like rotting trash.

You know how you hear those reports of people who died in their house but no one found them until the neighbors called to complain about the smell? I'm kind of worried that might be the case with this house, that everyone's dead inside. That probably ISN'T the case, or at least I really hope not, but part of me wants to call the cops in case it is, and then part of me doesn't want to call the cops in case it is.
