Below are the contents of the DIARY found in the DINING ROOM.
I've been harassed for months now. I can't get any rest. A bright full moon seems to be the catalyst for all the disturbances.
The spirit in the attic is back. She makes so much noise up there. All through the night she bangs around on the rafters. Will she ever leave?
I've decided to name the ghost in the attic Christina. I think she is from the 1900s but I can't be sure. She seems very sad.
After days of studying Christina, I think I've uncovered her love for the moonflower. I need to start planting some. I think a perfect spot is out by the garden shed.
I think there is something in the basement now. Whenever I go down there at night...I hear some growling in the old cellar. It's scaring the tar out of me right now.
I've been unable to sleep for 3 days now. That god awful moaning and growling down in the cellar will not stop. I can't rest. Once the growling seems to quiet, Christina begins banging around for the remainder of the night. I think I am going to have to start sleeping during the day. I wonder what my boss at work will think of that.
Well, Mr. James at work said he will not let me work at night. I guess I may have to find a new job. Perhaps I can work out of the barn and do some machine repair work. I've always loved working with machines.
It's official. I quit my job today. It's time to start my own business in the barn and put my tinkering skills to work.
This is insane. Will these ghosts ever shut up!!! Just let me sleep already!
I have the shop set up in the old stable building. I'm now ready to open for business.
I can't get anything done. These spirits just will not leave me alone. They keep taking my tools and hiding my projects. If they don't stop, I'm going to have to declare war on them.
That's it...it's WAR!!! Look out ghosts...you've picked a fight with the wrong guy.
The moonflower bush is starting to grow. I hope it survives the coming winter.
A new pack of wolf spirits have presented themselves just south of the barn. They seem to be aggressive. I don't think I will tease them.
The paranormal wolves seem to come regularly. I get the sense they are hunting. For what it is unclear. They appear to be unfriendly and often growl when I approach.
I've been studying the wolves from a distance for a few days now. They seem to pace and guard the old stone ruins down near the outpost. I need to find a way to disperse them without feeding them any of my limbs.
The beast in the basement seemed to be particularly angry last night. Now that I am sleeping days, I can keep my guard up at night. It seems too dangerous to sleep at night anymore.
I have come to the conclusion that Christina is wearing a wedding dress. She doesn't seem to be dangerous, but she does make a lot of noise. I think she is more distraught than viscious. Perhaps her groom left her at the alter. I should go to the library tomorrow afternoon and do some research
My day at the library yesterday was very helpful. It seems there was a woman that lived here about 80 years ago that died on her wedding day. I could not find her name in the records as it only referred to her as the wife of Jeb Peterson. I believe he is the farmer that built the old barn.
After much more research this week, I've uncovered a hidden truth that the ground upon which this estate was built is an ancient burial ground for a regional tribe that lived here several hundred years ago.
Tomorrow is Halloween. I dread what might happen. I will definitely be on high alert.
This dreadful night is upon me. I only pray the cloud cover holds and prevents a full moon in the sky.
Last night was not as bad as I feared. It was noisy...but not nearly has viscious as a full moon. I should count my blessings while I can. I think I am going to catch up on some lost sleep now.
The wolves are back tonight. I tried an experiment and discovered they respond to sound. I need to test some different noises to see if they have any effect on them.
After many tests, I've determined the wolves have some response to certain tones. I believe if I can refine the tones and put them in the correct sequence, I may get some positive results.
Christina is up to her old ways again. Unfortunately the moonflower bush has went into hibernation. I will need to wait until spring to see if I can get any blooms.
Its been relatively quiet lately...and that is what is making me nervous.
Clouds have prevented the full effects of the moon over the last few weeks. It seems the spirits have lost a lot of their energy lately. Thank God!
Christmas is nearing. I think I will go away from here until the new year. I really could use a break.
Its good to be home, but I've found many of my tools to be missing. It seems someone (or something) has been very active lately. It looks like I'm facing a long week ahead.
The demon in the basement is out of control tonight. I'm hiding in the garden shed right now. There is no way I'm going back in that house right now.
I saw him this evening and he was full of terror. It's like he is undead. The basement is literally a wasteland of death. I also have found a scratch on the back of my leg. Three marks.
Its been fairly calm in the house the past couple of days. I decided to take a look down in the cellar and it was a disaster. Whatever that thing is has a lot of power. I wonder where his energy comes from. I need to find the source.
I've been searching the house and the basement every chance I get. I think there is a portal somewhere in the basement. My suspicion is that the energy from this place is fed from this portal. I need to find a way to trap it.
The wolves were howling all night last night. I have two of my noisemakers built but I need more. I estimate it will only take me a few weeks for me to build them.
The moonflower bush has come out of dormancy and showing signs of life. I think it survived the winter and now that the nightly frosts are subsiding, I may be able to nurse it to health.
I'm having trouble getting my third noisemaker working. The spirits keep hiding my tools. I really need to get rid of these annoying menaces.
I get the sense that Christina is lost in her spirit world. It feels as though she is looking for release from it.
Christina is getting more and more distressed these days. She is showing signs of aggression now. I really hope the moonflowers help.
I think Christina will respond to the moonflower. My early tests of offering her the leaves of the plant have allowed me to approach her without risk.
The third noisemaker is nearly finished. I've developed some methods to conceal my key tools from the spirits. It seems that if I develop elaborate means to secure them, the ghosts are unable to decipher my mechanisms.
Spring is showing signs of arrival. The trees are coming back to life.
I've found what appears to be an energy source down in the bottom of the cistern in the basement. This may be what I have been looking for.
More study is needed of the wolves. I've tested some of my noisemakers on them and they are curious of them. They definitely catch their attention. I just need to find the right combination to appease them.
I've met recently with a tribal chief that gave me much insight to the history of this place. He told me that many of his ancestors lived in this area. He believes the wolves are related to the events that happened here. I can't wait to talk to him again to learn more about their history in this place.
I talked to the tribal chief again this morning and he told me that the wolf spirits have haunted this land for centuries. He says they are very dangerous. He also said that this place is an ancient burial ground which could explain the intensity and strength of all the parnormal activity.
The chief came here today to visit and was captivated by all the activity. We went to the outpost and he performed an ancient ritual on the floor there. Things seemed to have quieted down as a result.
The spirits are back and they are more angry than every. I really need to hurry. I think I am running out of time.
I now have 4 of the noisemakers finished. I think I need one more.
The trouble in the basement erupted last night. I believe my experiments with the amber stone the chief gave me are proving to be effective. I think I need to test more stones.
I believe I have found another stone to have an effect on the demon beast. The meteorite that was lent to me by the county archives has shown some signs of effectiveness.
The moonflowers are starting to bloom. I may try some experiments with those.
I approached the basement last night and found myself this morning wandering around the barn in a daze. I am very confused. I do not recall anything in the hours between. I also found bruises on my chest. This development is very disturbing. I really need to be more careful down there.
The wolves are responding to the tone sequences I've been testing. I just don't know the right sequence yet to get their full attention. I am sure there is something to this development.
My last noisemaker is nearly finished...but I've lost 3 of them. Those annoying entities are creating much havoc about. I think I need to develop more locking mechanisms. They seem to prevent this mischief from happening.
Christina seems to find contentment with some of the small flowers I've given her...but they don't seem to have a strong effect. Perhaps I need a controlled place to allow them to bloom in. It seems the basement might offer direct moonlight through its windows to allow the plant to thrive.
The chief came again today to review my progress on addressing the basement demon. His opinion was that I should acquire samples of the five sacred stones. He named them as follows:
I am finding that it will take a lot more testing to find the right stone samples. Many of my samples are not working. The only two so far that I have found to have an effect is the meteorite and the amber stone sample.
I've had some success getting the moonflowers to bloom in a pot in the basement. The problem is, my blooms keep getting burned by the demonic forces down there. There is so much energy present. I really need to figure out how I can contain them to the cellar near the ethereal portal.
I have discovered that a crane's egg I found near the ruins is causing the wolves a lot of discomfort to them. Perhaps this egg will serve effectively as the air stone.
I've finished work on a couple more places to conceal and secure my stones. I need to make sure they don't disappear on me.
I've been working non-stop on developing a method to close the spirit portal. I think I am nearing a solution.
I have all of the stones I need now. I just need to find the right configurations to maximize their effectiveness.
In light of my recent developments, the chief has given me an ancient recipe for creating a unique herbal based potion. He states that the mixture has ancient spiritual powers in harnessing the second world he has referred to in the past. He explained to me that the second world is much like purgatory, where ancenstrial spirits reside until they are given access to the afterlife.
After a few more conversations with the chief, he revealed to me that the second world has portals to the earth world we live in and some spirits are able to pass through the portals. It takes a lot of energy to do this and if you can interrupt the energy flows, then you can close the portal. The chief also explained that the recipe he gave me is based on his ancestors winter counts from over 300 years ago. Their experience was much like mine and over decades were able to develop this recipe.
I've decided to convert the recipe into a jigsaw puzzle and scatter the pieces about. This will hopefully keep the recipe out of the hands of the spirits.
I think I have everything ready to close the portal. I am worried that it may not work. The ghosts, demons and wolves are incredibly powerful now.
I have all the proper elements setup and positioned for the coming full moon. I think I will rest now.
The night terrors seem so real now and are so frequent. I know the time is near. I hope I can keep my sanity.
The full moon is in 3 days. I dread the night now. It is driving me insane. The incessant noise and howling ravages my mind. It is hard to keep my thoughts straight.
I have resorted to hiding in the stable now. It is the only place that I can find refuge from the beings that haunt this place. The time for reconciliation nears.
Tomorrow night is the harvest moon. The house is inhabitable. I've been scratched many times and everytime I enter the house...I feel faint. The wolves are back and even more fierce than ever before. I am very nervous.
The full moon is now high in the sky. I am going to attempt to close the portal. If by any chance this happens to be my last entry in this journal, tell my mother I love her."
