25th AUGUST 1943
Shaun moved first, taking the offered shovel he placed it in the dirt and with a press of his boot, sunk it into the ground.
‘What are you looking for, Mr.......?’
‘Price, Madam, Harry Price. I’m looking for her, if she is down here that is.’
‘Her, Mr Price?’
‘The nun who has haunted these parts for hundreds of years. If I can find her I can bury her and she can finally rest.’
‘Can you tell me about her?’
Mr Price stopped digging and rested his arm on his shovel.
‘It is a tale, a tale as old as time itself, a tale of forbidden love. It dates back to before the Rectory was built in 1863, even before Waldegrave Manor, to a time when an ancient monastery sat here. My research has led me to believe that the accepted legend, of a nun being walled up in the cellar of a nearby Nunnery is false. No, I believe the ghost that haunts these parts is a French nun called Marie Lairre, who married Henry Waldegrave and lived in the Manor House that preceded the Rectory where most of the haunting takes place.
I believe he killed her in a fit of rage, prone as he was to black moods and quick temper, burying her down here in the cellar to hide his crime. Her shade walks the grounds in restlessness as she was not buried in consecrated grounds.’
‘Oh,’ said Adriana, tears pricking her eyes. ‘That is so sad.’
