I am still trying to get an ending for the ghost story. I eventually moved back in with her, so that I could be near her as much as possible. One day she tumbled over her own feet, and now she uses a wheel-chair.
When I came home from work one night, a few days after Thanksgiving, she was staring at the paintings on the dining-room walls. There was about every style in the mix of art around the house. I did as she said and found a safe door behind it, with a electric keypad.
I pulled open the door and inside was a large shipping envelope and a small ebony statuette of Anubis. Mother asked me to hand her the statuette and for me to open the envelope.
I obeyed, and found inside the package, a collection of Polaroid images, a zip-lock bag of ancient coins, a key-ring with about a dozen keys, and a second letter-sized envelope. Once upon a time… in a time long past… there was a Baker and his wife, and they had three sons, the youngest was Peter and he had hair like the fire that blazed in the fireplace the day he was born; and the second was Jack, who was as light and agile as a breeze, and the eldest was Khan, who was as strong as a tiger.
They also had a daughter — their youngest child — named Elsa. She went first to the house of the Baker, but he refused to let her enter. Furious, she went to the next house, and the next, and the next, but no one let her in.
So she cursed the town, with a terrible winter storm, then left and never came back. That was the day that Elsa was born. The Baker ventured out during a lull in the fury of the storm.
He came back hours later, with branches, and a turkey that had frozen to death; he was nearly frozen himself. I waited for her to go on with the story. The same thing happened then. The storm would pound and wrestle with the town for a few weeks every winter.
But it left them alone for the rest of the year. The giant black dog was always sighted around the time of each disappearance.
As years went by, children grew up, families moved in, or moved away. Khan and Elsa came back with a tale of sorrow, Jack had fallen through the ice and Peter had given himself up as a target to the black dog, running off, leading it away from the others. And I heard the wind howl.For 60 years, American drivers unknowingly poisoned themselves by pumping leaded gasoline into their tanks.
