A door opens for a nervous man, seemingly by itself. Less eerie: a maid opened it from behind. More eerie again: the maid is completely silent. The man has a letter of introduction from his sister, who had stayed there as a rest cure in the past, for which purpose he is now there.
The man waits in a room, where he catches a chill from the open window (actually, French doors). A young girl tells him a story about why the "window" is left open, involving hunters who left that way but were lost in a bog, their bodies never found. Their ghosts may return someday. The girl's mother joins them, apparently delusional in the belief that the hunters only just left. The girl silently suggests her mother is dotty.
A bit predictable from this point on, but fun and well done.
