     The nightmare woke me with a jolt. I sat up in bed gasping for breath. Something had been chasing me through the dark rooms of Granger Mansion. In my dream, I ran upstairs, slammed the door to my bedroom and tried to block out the sound of someone or something panting behind me.

Moonlight shining through the window made my bedroom almost as light as day. Knowing I could never get back to sleep after such a terrifying nightmare, I decided to go to the kitchen and make a cup of chamomile tea. My nerves definitely felt jangled.

Winter still had its icy hold on April. I longed for warmth and sunshine and prowling my yard to see what flowers would come poking through the ground. This would be my first April at Granger Mansion in forty years. Shrugging into my fuzzy red robe and sliding my feet into house shoes, I padded downstairs.

It was the well that drew my attention. The brick base supporting the round structure did not look right. A lumpy something lay on those bricks.
