gather round again...
This story isn't about our house or a neighbor.
It's about a friend of my aunt.
This woman was happily married
until one day her husband passed away.
She lost her job very soon after
and had to start over at a new place.
things seemed to be getting worse everyday.
she was miserable and lonely.
Books became her only companions
since she began to loathe the company
after finding a certain book at a yard sale
she became very interested in the occult.
believing she had finally found the right lifestyle
she began practicing
depraved and abusive rituals.
this went on for about a year.
a new place to live
and a better job convinced her that she was
on the right path.
Her sister would call her from Coloroado
and beg her to stop with all the evil deeds.
But a conscience wasn't
something she had anymore.
one night after returning to her
home, she heard a strange noise
someone breathing heavily at the window...
not seeing anything outside
she continued getting ready for bed.
suddenly she heard a loud slam against the ceiling.
she thought maybe someone was in the attic....
as she turned to go have a look
something caught her attention.
At the high windows in her living room
she saw a face!
those windows were at least ten feet off the ground,
intended to bring in light with out the need for curtains.
It was a face..the face of a goat.
She recognized the odd pupils immediately.
She ran to the bedroom to hide
but when she got in there it was trying to peer
in at her through the curtains.
It was on it hind legs..and it appeared to be
around nine feet tall.
It circled the house, slamming against it
and unbelievably...calling her name.
She began praying
and she didn't stop
until she saw the sunrise and the creature disappeared.
Getting rid of all her books and tools
was not a problem
for her after that.
The giveaway for this week is this shot glass.
