Ghost Story: My husband had always been jealous. He was older than I and this made him worse. I know I hurt him, but he didn't have to be so cruel. The man I loved, Sir William De Lindfield, did not deserve such a horrible death. We cannot help who we fall in love with, our hearts cannot be easily swayed from their true path. I loved my husband once, I hope he knew that.
He trapped my lover and walled him up alive. I found him as he was placing the last course of bricks that sealed Sir William's fate. That was my last day on this earth as well. I was found dead the next day.
Years later my lover's skeleton was found crouched with his head resting on his hands. I still wander this place calling for my lost love. I hope, one day, he will hear me.
