was awakened by the overhead chaos and Lars clinging to me in terror. He shrieked what the hell is that? I reminded him that it was ''just squirrels''. After that incident Lars and Tom and a few other people decided that they would all go together to take a look up in the attic.
There was a deep layer of dust on the attic stairs and floor indicating that nothing had been walking up there in a very long time. Beneath the dust could be seen a pentagram
had been drawn on the floor with melted candles at each corner.|
We gave our notice to move that day. Years later Lars and I were married with children
and living in a different city. Lars's mom sent a newspaper clipping about prairie house. It had a somewhat sad history.|
The lady of the house died not very long after moving in. There was that a fire later that had damaged much of the house and 2 dogs that lived there died in the fire. The fire was thought to have been started by a butler who later committed suicide.
