Watson Pritchard took everyone on a tour of the house. Ruth Bridgers stood under a puddle of blood that was on the ceiling, and got marked as Pritchard called it.
Then they went down to the basement where Pitchard showed them a wine vat that was filled with acid. Nora almost fell in but Lance caught her.
Jackie was hanging onto Frederick tightly so she wouldn't fall in, and he was hanging onto her to protect her. Pitchard closed the wine vat, and everyone went back upstairs, everyone except Lance,and Nora.
They talked while they looked in all the rooms in the basement.
Lance walked into one of the rooms, and when he did the door locked on it's own Nora tried to open the door but it wouldn't budge then she saw what she thought was a ghost.
She left Lance alone,and ran out of the basement, and into the the living where she told everyone that Lance was gone,and that she saw a ghost.
Everyone followed Nora down to the basement when she wen to the door of the room where Lance was locked in the door was unlocked. Frederick, and Dr. Trent helped Lance to the living room, and Nora was close behind.
Frederick "This is my wife Annabelle." Annabelle "Good evening everyone." Jackie "Hello Annabelle you look lovely tonight." Annabelle "Hello Jackie you look stunning are you well?" Jackie "Yes I just feel a little tired that's all." Annabelle "Frederick tiring you out is he?"

Jackie "I'm glad you're being so understanding about everything, and I will make Frederick very happy as matter of fact we might be expecting."
Annabelle "That's wonderful congratulations." Jackie "Thank you." Annabelle "Your welcome."
Frederick "What are you laddies talking about?" Annabelle "You." Jackie "Annabelle is happy for us."
Frederick "You're being a lady tonight Annabelle any other time your a cold hearted witch."Annabelle "Thank you for that Frederick I think."
Frederick "It's only a few hours till midnight if you wish to leave with the caretakers you can leave now because once the door is locked you won't be able to leave until tomorrow morning."
The caretakers left, and locked the door. Frederick ran to see if he could open the door.
Frederick "It's too late the care takers made the choice for you we're all locked in here till tomorrow morning." Annabelle "Darling get some cars for these people, and let them go home but pay them first."
Fredrick "Despite my wife's faith in me to do the impossible we have some party favors for you."
Frederick opened some little coffins they had guns inside them.
Frederick "Mr. Pritchard, Dr. Trent, Lance, Nora, Miss Bridgers, and here's you're's dear."
Annabelle "I don't need it." Frederick "Who knows you might want to use it on me before the night is over."
Jackie "I don't think Annabelle will shoot you Frederick she'd just poison you again." Annabelle "I'd be careful Jackie Frederick might try to kill you."
Jackie "You know he was never charged with anything when his first wife disappeared, and his other two wives died." Frederick "Thank you for standing up for me Jackie." Jackie "I love you Frederick , and I want to be with you forever." Frederick "You shall be with me forever my darling , you shall be."
Nora began screaming. She said there was a head in her suitcase everyone went upstairs to look Watson Pritchard opened Nora's suitcase there was no head inside. The doctor offered to give Nora a sedative. She screamed at everyone , and them to get out.
Lance asked Ruth Bridgers to stay with Nora Ruth agreed to stay with Nora. Lance went to his bedroom. And went on a rant accusing Frederick of frightening Nora, and told him not to do it again. Frederick walked away, and Jackie went after him Dr. Trent stopped her.
Dr. David Trent "How is it that your Mr. Loren's mistress your so young?" Jackie "That's not important Dr. Trent the more important question is what are you doing screwing Frederick's wife Annabelle, and why are you planning on killing Frederick you have no answer to that question well if you can't answer my question then I can't answer you're question now if you excuse me I need to go check on Frederick ,and see if he's alright."
Jackie walked away from Trent, and went downstairs to see Frederick. When she found him in the living she ran to him,and hugged him tightly.
Frederick "My darling you've been crying what's the matter?" Jackie "Oh Frederick Annabelle, and Dr Trent are sleeping together, and they are planning on killing you." Frederick "I know."
Jackie "You know what do you plan to do about it?" Frederick "You, and I are going to play their little game too." Jackie "I'd play any game with you I love you Frederick Loren, and we are going to have a baby." Frederick "Oh Jackie I'm so happy I love you with my whole heart." Jackie "And I love you with my whole heart Frederick very much."
As Jackie, and Frederick were talking. Nora went missing. Lance couldn't find her but he did find a woman's head in the closet.
He went to look for Nora he walked into the living room where Pritchard was sitting in a chair holding a knife. As Lance, and Watson were arguing Annabelle Loren hung herself.
Lance, and Dr. David Trent found Annabelle they carried her into another bedroom. Jackie, and Frederick ran into the room. When Jackie saw Annabelle she turned away.
Then she,and Frederick walked up to the bed. When Dr. David Trent said Annabelle hung herself Jackie held Frederick. Lance left the room to continue his screech for Nora.
Nora found Lance then they went to her room where Nora accused Frederick of choking her, and locking her in a room, and leaving her in that room.
Lance also accused Frederick of Attacking Nora as Lance was comforting Nora Dr. Trent knocked on the door.
Dr. Trent told Lance he came to the same conclusion, and then told Lance to meet everyone else in the living room so they could decide what to do. Lance agreed.
Once everyone was in the living room they began to discuss what to do.
Dr. David Trent "When we first came here to this house the one thing we had in common was the $10.000 dollars now share something else in common the death of Mrs. Loren."
Frederick "Doctor you were the first one to find my wife did you see anything she could have climbed up on, and jump off of." Dr. David Trent "No."
Frederick "Then it was murder, and one of you did it." Trent "Or you did it Mr. Loren."
Jackie "How dare you accuse Frederick he was with me if it was anybody who is in our presents tonight I would have to say it was you Dr. you knew Annabelle Loren very well since you were banging her."
Dr. David Trent went to strike Jackie but Frederick grabbed his arm, and twisted his wrist.
Frederick "You hit Jackie,and it will be the last thing you ever do." Jackie "I'm alright Frederick I'm looking at Annabelle's killer, and it's not you." Frederick "Come my dear I'll take you upstairs." Jackie "Alright."
Jackie, and Frederick left the living room. Then everyone else went upstairs to their rooms.
Frederick went to Annabelle's room, and found Watson Pritchard watching his wife.
He grabbed Pritchard around the throat , and squeezed really tight then he threw Pritchard out of the room.
A few hours later Nora saw Annabelle Loren floating outside her window. This drove Nora to her breaking point, and she ran down to the basement.
Frederick was also on his way to the basement when he got there Nora shot him. Jackie heard the shot when she got to the basement she knelt next Frederick. Nora left the basement screaming.
Dr. David Trent came out of one of the rooms, dragged Frederick's body to the wine vat filled acid. Frederick woke up, and pushed Dr. David Trent into the acid.
Jackie walked up to Frederick, and kissed him. He kissed Jackie back. Annabelle walked into the basement looking for Dr. David Trent. The doors closed she was locked in the basement.
As she tried to get out a Skeleton came out of one the rooms. It had Frederick's voice.
Annabelle kept backing up she almost fell into the wine vat but she managed to stop herself but when the Skeleton got very close she fell into the acid.
Frederick said goodnight to Annabelle, and Dr. Trent. Meanwhile Nora had just told Lance that she shot Mr. Loren, and she didn't think he was alive. Everyone ran to the basement, and to Nora's surprise Frederick was alive.
Nora "He's alive." Frederick "You didn't shot anyone my dear I filled your gun with blanks I can tell you all right now Trent, and my wife were planning to kill me they failed Trent tried to push me into the acid vat, and my wife tripped and fell into the acid vat I'll let the law prove my innocence or guilt."
Jackie "The rest of you shall be paid the $10.000 as promised now I suggest we get the hell out of this house, and go back to our lives."
Frederick left the basement Jackie was close behind him. Everyone else followed. Frederick paid the remaining guests. And then everyone left. Jackie went back to her house that night.
