This experience happened to me about two years ago over the summer. It was just a few weeks after school ended. My brother got an odd job from his friend to help him clean out an old house house for his grandma. My brother asked if I wanted to come along since they were going to go to a gas station afterwards to get soda and stuff. Of course I wanted soda and candy, it’s what any kid would want. I decided to tag along.
The house was a little ways out of town so there wasn’t many other houses around. I think the closest one was half a mile away. When we arrived we were told by my brother’s friend’s dad that he wanted us to clean the back room. He gave us some trash bags and said that if there was anything we wanted in the room we could just take it. We walked into the room and the first thing that we noticed was the big cleared out space, ripped wall paper and a odd smell. I brushed off the smell as just being part of the house since it was pretty shabby and beat up.
