Mina bid goodnight to her companions as she reached the home she was renting for the next few months. She smiled, heading up the small gravel path, running her fingers through the abundance of wildflowers that filled the small front garden. The cottage was beautiful. She fell in love the moment she saw it, from the thatched roof to the antique furniture inside. It was like stepping back through time. To a simpler era. One filled with myths and folktales.
Which was precisely why she chose it. She chuckled, remembering the old folk in the local pub.
"You're not staying alone, are you dear?" "You need to be careful, there are....odd things in those woods"
She also heard the odd mutterings and whispers about previous occupants. That is, before the Pub landlord shushed them "No need to frighten the girl with all that nonsense!"
She chuckled, combing her hair and slipping out of her clothes. She pulled a simple nightshirt out of her case, and settled herself in the plush bedding.
Those silly old villagers and their tales....
She knew very well there was nothing lurking in the shadows.
No creatures that go bump in the night.
