Bethany is a young girl in Fitchburg, Wisconsin.
Bethany, is saying her prayers before bed. Her father comments that her mother in is the hospital with her sister, and then leaves. Bethany is still very awake by the tree branches banging against the window. Creeped out by this, Bethany gets out of bed and closes the blinds and returns to bed. She soon sees a thin, long fingered hand which opens her bedroom window. The figure creeps in, and rolls her over. As it hisses at her, Bethany lets out a scream.
