Villagers reported witnessing spectral forms drifting through midnight mist towards Arkwright’s creation; within the figures’ shadows, spirits communed with mortal souls seeking redemption or reunion.

“Such is the profound interstice: under-cover meetings not predicated on belief alone,” remarked Eldred Hawthorne, mythologist.

As dawn broke, banishing the night’s turmoil, villagers shared breathless accounts of perceived exchanges that mended fractured pasts and healed present woes.
