Trent Austin is a good looking lawyer who has just inherited an old Victorian mansion from his Uncle and he has no idea why, they were never that close and it seemed like his Uncle really disliked him, but when he goes in to see what state it is in and gets a really creepy vibe from it and a couple of strange things happen when he tries to open the curtains, he decides he wants rid as soon as he can, so he calls on the only person he can think of to do it. Tina Sanders is a sexy and confident woman and she is extremely good at her job, so when a call from Trent comes in for help selling his newly inherited mansion, she is reluctant to get involved again since she dumped him and ran away three months ago when she got scared by her feelings towards him, but decides that she can be professional, accepts the job and agrees to meet with him at the house the next day.
When they get there, Tina agrees that there is a creepy vibe but she goes around and gives her assessment of what needs doing so they can get a good price, but she is finding it hard to concentrate, as is Trent as the attraction they both felt is reignited as if the last three months hadn’t happened, but neither of them want to act on it. As they continue to walk through the house, they come across rooms in which the decoration doesn’t make sense and just increases the discomfort, but that all increases when they get to the third floor room, Tina feels a compulsion to unlock it and when she doesn find the key and unlock it, she feels like that was a mistake and wants to flee the room as soon as she sets foot in it.
