The house had stood for more than a century, and there wasn’t anything modern about it. Old was only one word to describe the place. Among the local people, the house was the subject of much talk…and wonder.
Years ago the farm served a family well. One couldn’t pass the property without noting its beauty.
Then one day the entire family was gone, yet many things remained. It was so sudden that the whole situation raised questions.
The house had fallen quiet. Its dark windows held secrets. If only walls could talk.
