The Feldmans toured the two-story Cape Cod styled home, eyes wide with anticipation. The real estate agent, Frank, inconspicuously rushed them through the house and back out to the front lawn.
“We love it,” said Mr. Feldman, as his wife nodded in agreement. “Is there anything we should know about the house’s past?”
The agent looked down and stammered, “Uh, what do you mean?”
“Well, like, was there ever a termite problem? Or, is the electrical wiring up to standards or did Joe-Blow rig it up?”
Relieved, the agent replied with a forced smile, “Oh! No, no termites. And the wiring has been inspected thoroughly by a certified electrician. So, no problems there.”
The agent went back to flipping through his paperwork, hoping no more questions would be asked about the previous owners. He wanted to get this house sold quickly so he didn’t have to step foot in it again. Gave him the creeps.
Why does the house creep Frank out? Why don’t the Feldmans clue in to Frank’s unease? What’s the back story? Please give feedback!
