Outside Of The Manor
From the outside, the manor looks like one of those ghost trains you find at theme parks, of one of those haunted houses you find in the movies. It is surrounded by trees, dead trees to be more specific, and yellow (dead) grass. Most of the windows are broken and some are boarded over. There is a graveyard behind the manor, which just adds to the creepiness.

"Holy..." Evelyn said walking up to the manor. "I'm going to have my work cut out for me..." She sighed looking at the dead trees and grass. "I better be getting a decent room..." She muttered to herself as she walked up to the door. "With a huge TV... And a hot tub..." Evelyn said drifting off into a cheesy daydream. "OOH! And a pool! Definitely a pool..." She snickered.

Elliot walks through the area and up to the mansion looking at his phone seemingly trying to do something. Elliot looks up at the mansion and smiles. Elliot wasn't scared of the place, he was never the superstitious type and didn't believe in ghosts, so he walked unafraid and up to Evelyn. Eliiot smiled as he walked besides the Evelyn and let out a small chuckle as he heard her "Daydream"

"I'm sure the master of this home is rich enough to accommodate "all" of us with such wonderful "gifts". So, your new here I'm assuming?"

"Huh?" Evelyn  said snapping out of her daydream and turning to face Elliot.  "Oh, Oui!" Evelyn responded  cheerfully. "My name's Evelyn, but my friends call me Eve." She held her hand for Elliot to shake. "Or Evie, or Evil, and sometimes Eep. I'm not sure where they got that last one..." She added.

 "I'm the new gardener. " Evelyn explained. "So what's your name?" She asked, acting slightly like a hyper puppy.

As Charlie walked up to the intimidating manor, a large grin sprouted on his face in anticipation of what its contents might be. He walked straight past the two conversing at the steps to knock at the door. When it wasn't immediately opened, he slumped down next to the door, assuming it would be a while before the door was opened. He then pulled out his cellphone and began thumbing through some junk email.

Sarah strolls up to the door and spies the group huddled by the door, " Oh Hi !" She says. She gets out her notebook and starts to scribble.

The butler opened the door after hearing a knock. He would speak to each of the new arrivals in turn.

He looked at Charlie slumped next to the door with disdain. "Would you care to get up, sir?" he said with a posh voice, "You do not have a scheduled arrival... I am sure Master McGregor would like some company though. Yes, yes jolly good. Do you... Do anything useful? Ah... Cook, clean? You know... I mean, of course I do not want you to look like a lowly servant. Are you much good at entertaining? Oh, but of course we have Master McGregor for that... Ah, you could teach Mistress Ruby! She is Master McGregor's daughter, a small girl of eleven. You shall be her tutor!" He finally proclaimed without waiting for consent.

His eyes fell on Evelyn. "You. The new gardener, yes?" Without waiting for a response, he continued, "You will start work tomorrow morning at dawn sharp. I am sure Master McGregor will be very pleased of your arrival... As you can see, the garden is in quite a state and will need good work on. Your room is all set up, I believe you requested an in-built wall television, a Jacuzzi and a pool? I'm afraid the pool isn't that big."

Finally he spoke to Elliot and Sarah, "And you must be the new account, and you the journalist. Well, you all must come in and sit down at the table!"

Oscar took their coats and jackets (if they had one) and led them to the great hall.

She saw other people, but instinct told her to hang back.  It was better to see how thing went, then to arrive when she could again be able to pay attention and not have distraction.

The house was certainly not particularly inviting.  But no worse than she'd expected.  With a deep breath, she approached the door and rang, waiting patiently.

With no one answering the door, but clearly activity inside, Suzanne reached for the handle, fully expecting it to be locked.  It wasn't.  With a turn it clicked open.  Thinking this was against her better judgment she entered, rationalizing she didn't have to stay.
