He could hear the sound of a child running in his room, laughing, though couldn’t see visually, however, could hear it evidently. Frantically, he ran out of his room.
Another incident took place in the year 2003. When Henry set up the dungeon’s room in the turret as they were anticipating some guests and ordered the table for a meal.
