THE HOUSE AT LAKE ORION

GRANDMA (JENNY TORRANCE) HAD A HOUSE AT LAKE ORION. THE WIFE
OF THE MAN WHO BUILT THE HOUSE DIED WHEN HE WAS HALF WAY THROUGH.
I THINK THAT'S WHY THE HOUSE IS HAUNTED. ONE NIGHT WHEN JEAN WAS
STILL HERE (SHE DIED IN 1922) SHE WAS SLEEPING BETWEEN HER MOTHER
AND FATHER IN THE BIG ROOM UPSTAIRS. JEAN LET OUT A TERRIBLE SCREAM
AND HER MOTHER PUT HER HAND OVER ON HER TO COMFORT HER.
SHE FELT SOME KIND OF ANIMAL, BUT WHEN SHE LOOKED, NOTHING
WAS THERE. THE NEXT NIGHT HER COUSIN BOB GLANTZ WAS IN THE
BATHROOM AND HE RAN OUT SCREAMING,
HE SAID HE SAW AN ANIMAL IN THERE AND IT HAD BIG EARS THAT STUCK OUT
ON EACH SIDE. THE HOUSE WAS SEARCHED AGAIN AND STILL THEY COULD
NOT FIND ANYTHING.
POOR GRANDMA A COUPLE OF NIGHTS BEFORE SHE DIED IN THAT HOUSE THE
DOORKNOB ON HER ROOM KEPT TURNING.
GRANDMA TOLD FORTUNES, BUT SHE DIDN'T WANT TO, BECAUSE SHE ALWAYS
HAD BAD LUCK AFTERWARD. MAYBE SHE WAS THE KIND OF PERSON WHO
ATTRACTED GHOSTS.
