The last of these to go had stood isolated on the very edge of our town for as long as anybody could remember. It was surrounded by dark, overhanging oaks and pines, with a few overgrown shrubs (dogwoods, if I remember correctly) up under the eaves. Local legends name the place, if not exactly haunted, then, at least, somewhat peculiar.
Until recently an old woman lived there. Nobody knew exactly when she came, where she came from, or who she was, although there were rumors about her and the strange lights that were reported to flash from the locality of her little cabin on nights when the moon was full. However, since I’m not the kind of guy who repeats rumors, I’ll be silent about them here…
Of course, one day she died. Without any known heirs or family, her house was sold, and what few possessions she was found to have had were auctioned off. The house is gone now, replaced by the ubiquitous plastic filled fast food restaurants so common these days, and all that remains of this tall tale is that old lady’s Victorian Lynx Eye Necklace…
I have two of these (so OK, maybe there were two old ladies… uh… one on the East side of town, and one on the West side… yeah… that’s it…)...
