‘The Step Child’ By Agenis Villa

An estranged father decides to reconnect with a son he used to be abusive towards. After he does, strange happenings begin to occur in the boy’s room. Is it the father up to his old tricks, the son’s overactive imagination trying to come up with an excuse to not spend time with his father, or is it something supernatural?
