Dove Mission's Ghosts
Emilio looked up at them and smiled, “Nice you to meet you all.” He said, putting his hand out to shake Lisa and Mary’s hands.
Eva put her hand out to shake Emilio’s but his eyes were already on Lisa.
Emilio began his story, not waiting for Ted or Jude to catch up to the group.
“It was in the year 1637 that Ursola was brutally slain by the hand of her lover Jeroni, the Marquis of Morella.”
Emilio told the whole tale with an air of secrets being only now let out after hundreds of years in which they were left to fester and become fearsome. He reached his arm high above his head and pointed to a spot high up on the wall of the Mission.
Emilio continued his story, “There was so much blood the priests had to clean all the way up there. The reason for her murder has remained a mystery all this time, no one has ever been able to discover why Jeroni went crazy and killed Ursola.”
Mary twisted her neck to look up at the white wall, “Is there any lore about what might have happened?”
Emilio smiled and put his arm back down, he’d made his point, “Only whispers of witchcraft and that Ursola was not the first sacrifice given on these lands.”
