Curiously, the young house opened it's eyes to see a wasteland of debris lying on the landscape around him. Stretching it's aching limbs, it eased itself out into the open and sighed. He stared at the road and wondered 'Is this really the place that I would want to call home?' and, in search of a new lifestyle, abandoned his patch of land and began the hunt for a better, more scenic way of living. Crossing many bridges and fording many streams, he would stop at no cost to find his one desire- a place to finally call home. He had just got into the routine of site seeing when he heard a noise. Small sounds at the start, but those sounds grew louder, and louder, until his curiousness got the better of him and he turned around... but saw nothing? Just as he turned to continue, a creak disrupted proceedings and he spun round to see an older house standing a few metres away, disorientated by the severity of the wintery of the storm.'
