When Lizzie finally woke up, she was in a clean, white room in a hospital. Her mum looked down on her with piercing crystal blue eyes and a calm expression on her face. All this made Lizzie wonder why she was here. Then the past week’s events dawned back to her.The lightning, the person in the cloak and many more strange thoughts took place in her mind. Suddenly, her mum began to talk. Lizzie blocked all means of more thoughts as she gripped Mrs Jones’ hand tightly and listened to what she had to say.

All these things had something to do with lighting, her mother had said on that fateful day.
Suddenly, a bright light overcame Lizzie and spoke to her mother in a rasping voice.
“Lizzie Jones will leave this estate only when her work is done.”
And with those words Lizzie felt herself
