Daniel could tell his wife Merline was still sad. They drove into the country just to get away. Just off the road sat a house. It was run down and boarded up but they stopped any way. Merline wandered around the grounds of the house and felt a sense of peace. They decided to look inside to see how damaged it was. Merline loved the house.
