Dear New Owner

Imagine someone handing you the keys to your dream home; a beautiful house in an idyllic little neighbourhood that you’ve just spent 1.3 million dollars on. You’re excited to move in, to bring your children, and to start the next chapter of your life amongst the other families on the street. Sure, there’s a few touch ups to be done but it’s nothing a few contractors and some helpful hands can’t take care of. Soon enough it’ll be the perfect home. 

But then a letter arrives in your mailbox, unaddressed and unsettling.

“Dearest new neighbor at 657 Boulevard. Allow me to welcome you to the neighborhood.”
