In the heart of the forest, there stood an old mansion that was widely known to be haunted. Every day as dusk dropped its dark veil over the surroundings, an eerie yellow glow would emit from the lone window at the top of the mansion. The occasional weird sounds that came from the mansion did not bode well. As days passed, the news of the haunting and “ghostly sightings” grew abundant. Eventually the railway track that passed close to the house had to be abandoned. People were terrified to approach the mansion or its surroundings. The lone inmate of the mansion was delighted and relieved. She could finally live in peace. Her well-executed plans had added fire to the fuel of rumours. She would no longer be a victim of domestic abuse. Her abusive, alcoholic husband was never going to find her.
