Part 1 -
I arrived back home from uni in the middle of a summer's day.
Because of this, I was able to catch the new neighbour outside his house.
He greeted me and introduced himself as John.
He was tall and brown-haired, with a kind face.
I apologised and said I had to put my stuff away.
He said that was ok, but insisted I come over and meet his family in a few minutes, so i accepted his offer.
For that reason, five minutes later I was showered, changed and refreshed.
I knocked on John's door and a 10 year old girl opened the door.
She had medium-length blonde hair, tied in a ponytail.
She looked at me curiously, then asked me to follow her.
She led me through the house to the back garden, where John and an adult woman (his wife, i guessed) were sitting at a table.
Meanwhile, two more girls (a sixteen year old and a twelve year old) were swimming in a little pool.
I was impressed that they had installed a pool into their house so quickly.
John smiled when he saw me and introduced me to his wife, Carol.
Then he introduced his daughters.
The little 10 year old was called Ashley, and was apparently quite the tomboy.
The twelve year old, a girl called Whitney, smiled shyly at me.
She wore her hair long to cover her face.
Finally, the sixteen year old, Alisha, sent me a flirty smile.
Other than that, however, the girls ignored me as I chatted to their parents.
When it was time to leave, John asked if I could watch the girls the next day.
He explained that he and Carol were going out for the day, and that the girls couldn't be trusted to look after themselves.
I accepted, since I had little to do that early in the summer.
Little did I know that I would regret this decision.
