Andy escorted the brothers up the stairs to the attic. He pulled the chain and heard the familiar scratching right away. A prickle crawled up his spine and it grew louder as he slid the ladder down to the landing.
"I want to go up alone, Mr. Forrester," Dan said with a slight tremble of excitement or fear in his voice.
Andy hesitated at first, then relented to the request. If there was some way the boy could conduct an experiment up there and determine the cause of all this, it just might bring them closer to some sort of resolution. Wishful thinking for sure, but it was better than no thinking at all.
Once Dan was up, he peered down at Andy and Jason, and asked Andy to close the door.
"Dan, I don't think that's a very good idea. Tess got trapped up there and the door got stuck."
"Mr. Forrester, with all due respect, I am a professional. I have seen and heard more weird stuff than most people do in their lifetimes. Trust me. I know what I'm doing."
