Jenny took a baby-sitting job for the Hagens in a creepy old house. This baby-sitting job almost killed her, but she thankfully survived. She kept getting these phone calls from someone. Each time they called, he would say the same thing, "Hi, babes. Are you alone? Don't worry, company's coming."(page 2) She started getting these phone calls at her house, too. This man tried to kill her, but she killed him, instead. She quit the job and found a new baby-sitting job, but she still gets these same phone calls every day,  "Babes, I'm back."  (Jessica, student, Musselman Middle School. Bunker Hill, WV
