Topic: Stephen King: Nightmares and Dreamscapes
The kids had a plan to get to the house on Maple Street. They called their mother to get her out of the house and they got her to come to the school were Laurie "accidentally" sprained her leg during gym class. While that got her out of the house their father had already been at work, so they didn't need to do anything with him. They needed no one in the house so they could see them sneak past their house and go to the one on Maple Street. Maple Street was on the corner of their block and 3 houses away from where they lived. Brian their brother was on the corner of the block and he waited for Laurie to come see him.
