Nobody knew the specific starting points of the apparition. Some said it was the fretful soul of a young lady who had passed on in the woodland quite a long time back, while others accepted it was the vindictive soul of an old witch who had been singed at the stake.

No matter what its starting point, the phantom was dreaded by all who lived in the town. Kids were cautioned not to wander excessively profound into the woodland, and the grown-ups tried not to go out into the evening.

At some point, a young lady named Anna showed up in the town. She was a craftsman who had come to the timberland to track down motivation for her next painting. In spite of the admonitions of the residents, she was not terrified of the phantom and dove deep into the timberland to investigate.

As she was meandering through the trees, she went over a clearing where a bedraggled house stood. It was the sort of spot that appeared as though it had been deserted for a really long time. However, Anna couldn't shake the inclination that somebody was watching her.

She saw the young lady throughout everyday life, a capable craftsman who had experienced passionate feelings for a man from the town. They had wanted to run off, however the night they should take off, the man won't ever appear. The young lady had gone into the backwoods to search for him, however she stayed away forever.

With a newly discovered assurance, Anna set off to find the man that the phantom had cherished, trusting that it would carry harmony to the fretful soul.
