Christi's stroke made for one of the hardest days for her family, but when she was released from the hospital, it was the first day of their new lives. After living in a rental, the family had finally found a beautiful permanent home.
Amber was excited to finally put her own bedroom together. She had two plush “kissing” bunnies connected at the paws that had been an Easter gift. She placed the bunnies on her dresser while she finished unpacking a box. While her back was turned, something happened. She found the boy bunny sitting on the floor, torn away from the girl bunny. An upset Amber went to her mother, but Christi dismissed it as an accident: they'd just moved, and things can get broken in a move.
One evening, as Nelson was making a sandwich, he caught a whiff of an unusual yet strangely familiar smell. As he followed his nose to try to figure out what it was, he realized that the door to the basement was wide open. As he looked down the stairs, he realized it was the smell of cherry pipe tobacco. But why would there be the smell of tobacco in a home where nobody smoked? Nelson pushed the door until it clicked shut ... only to find it open again as he was locking the house up for the night.
Another day, as Christi was outside hanging clothes on the line to dry, she saw something in the blinds of Amber's window. It almost looked as though someone was holding down the blinds in one spot with two fingers. Christi went into the house to investigate, and when she reached Amber's room, she was hit with a blast of cold air. When she looked at the blinds, she could see the impression of two fingers in the grain. Something had been there, but what?
For Amber, the house was an exercise in troubled sleep. Every night at the same time, 2:45AM, something happened to wake her up. At first, she thought her brother, Matt, was playing tricks. One night, when she was awakened by a sudden shaking of the bed, something grabbed her foot under the sheets. Amber grabbed her covers and went downstairs to be closer to her parents' bedroom. When she got downstairs, she began to hear a little boy giggling ... and then something exclaimed into her ear, "Get out!" Amber screamed for her parents, convinced there was someone in the house. Nelson searched the place but found nothing.
One night shortly after Amber's birthday, she was playing a dance video game. One of the dance moves in the game was to turn around. When she did, she saw the shadow of a little boy across the house. Curious, Amber approached him and noted that he looked Native American. Suddenly, the manifestation startled her and she screamed for her mom. However, when Amber turned back to the boy, he was gone. Amber tried to convince her mother that there was a ghost in the house, but nobody would believe her.
On another night, while Nelson investigated an odd sound from the basement, Christi's CPAP machine went off by itself. As she fought for air, she screamed for Nelson as best she could. When he finally came running, they both tried to figure out what happened. Christi went to get a glass of water, still groggy from gasping for air, and heard an odd chanting that she couldn’t quite process. As she was walking back to the bedroom, she saw a man standing in the dining room. Nelson grabbed his gun and went to hunt down the intruder, though once again he found nothing. Christi went to Amber's room and apologized to her daughter for not believing her.
While Christi and Amber visited Christi's parents in Chicago, Nelson and Matt tried to get some peace and quiet. As Matt was chasing a stray arrow during archery practice in the backyard, he heard a second set of footfalls behind him ... and could not shake the feeling that he was being hunted.
As Nelson chased shadows, Matt tried to get some hunting equipment out of the basement. While he was down there, he got the same feeling that he was being hunted. When he turned for the stairs, he came face to face with someone standing there. Steadying himself, Matt barreled through the manifestation and up the stairs, eventually stopped by the locked basement door. When Nelson finally opened the basement door, Matt told his father that Amber was right. Neither of the men could deny that something was telling them to get out of there.
When Christi and Amber returned from their trip, they were happier than Nelson had seen them in a long time. Christi no longer needed her cane to walk and felt better than she'd felt since the stroke. The minute she walked back into the house, however, Christi began to decline. Nelson apologized to her and told her that something definitely didn't want them there.
Remembering Amber's comment about the boy appearing Native American, Christi did some research that led her to a store in town that specialized in Native American items. As Christi told the store employee about the happenings in her house, the woman wasn't surprised: Christi's house was on land that was important to several local tribes. She lived on sacred ground.
When Christi asked if there was anything that she could do, the woman offered four amber stones that, if put on the four corners of the property, had the potential to help. She also told Christi to perform a smudging on the home to encourage the departure of negative energies. Christi did as she was instructed, hoping to send a confused family of Native American spirits on the right path. For a while, it appeared to work.
As Christmas came around, the family put up the tree and lushly decorated the branches. It was almost as though the tree was tempting fate, and fate won. Christi woke in a panicked gasp for breath, convinced her CPAP had failed again; the machine, however, was working. That next morning, as Amber was bringing presents down from her room, she stopped dead in her tracks as she saw all of the decorations had been stripped off the tree.
