I know that a locked door will not stop it, but what else can I do? I have not the courage to go out and face it, and so here I wait.
On my return to the house I found a third ghost, a little girl. Though voiceless, the girl seemed gentle - even kind - before I saw her erupt into that great, vile mass! The very same beast that chased me from its lair beneath the house!
The girl and the monster are one. What curse could befall such a sweet child that causes her to manifest such unholy fury?
Ormod was trying to accomplish something. Something to cure his madness. He wrote of a spell that failed him. I believe it was his failure that drove him from simple eccentricity to murderous lunacy.
I have recovered pieces of his spell from among his notes. Perhaps if I could assemble all three fragments it could be used to cure the girl. But if Ormod could not make it work after so many years, what chance have I in these last scant hours?
