“I walked up and down the stairs. The house had many staircases and some leaned too far to one side and others creaked with each step and even more did not have banisters that could be grabbed when tripping. Each staircase had a door that looked within and those doors were kept locked from the inside. No one in the house ever saw what was inside those rooms and those who wanted to know did not ask. There were fifteen steps that led to the basement and then seventeen steps that led to the second floor and then fifteen more steps that led to the second floor from a different direction and then three steps that led into the house from the back and seven steps that led into the house from the front and five steps that led into the house from the side. There were twenty-nine steps that connected the second floor to the attic and fifty-seven steps that led directly to the attic from the ground floor.”
