A sense of peace now rests over Shackleton Grange. The three mute retainers go about their daily chores with a minimum of fuss, making sure that everything is ready for the classes that take place three times a week, and the parties that are thrown in the grand hall at weekends.

But no, maybe everything within the walls of Shackleton Grange isn’t quite as tranquil as it at first might appear. For on windless nights, a strange, plaintive sound echoes around the ancient turrets and chimneys, rattles the windows and reverberates through the antiquated floorboards.  If anyone was around to hear these mournful appeals, they might just be able to make out the muffled cries of a woman, whose desperate, anguished voice emanates from somewhere within the depths of the timeless structure, to fill the subterranean tunnels, labyrinth of corridors, myriad rooms and poorly lit alcoves with its strangely ghostlike lament.

 “Help me!..This is my house and you can’t keep me here!.. Please let me out!.. I’M SORRY!!”

The End

(Or is it?)
