Forever Love - Never Ending Death: One evening at Witherspoon, Cassie stands by the garden gate enjoying the gentle breeze when she hears her husband approaching and she smiles when he makes a low cat call.
He walks up behind her, wraps his arms around her, sighs deeply and kisses her neck. “We should stop,” she moans.
“I don’t care who sees us, because I love you so much, Cassie.” He tightens his hold on her and kisses her neck again.
Her eyes widen with fear. That wasn't Adam's voice. Before she can scream, the man clamps a hand over her mouth.
While shopping at the grocery store, Cassie is stopped by a woman and asked a question. “Are you Sam Watkins’ daughter?”
Lured to Grandville Manor, Cassie finds herself at the top of the stairs and threatened by a knife held by a madwoman. She screams, stumbles backwards, and reaches out for the banister to steady herself. Roy rushes up the remaining steps to make sure she doesn’t fall. Whether it was anger or hate, when Robin stumbles she takes Cassie and Roy down the stairs with her. All three land in a heap at the bottom of the gigantic staircase. A pool of red blood forms around their motionless bodies.
