parents were planning.
So two days of the before the party she went to the dress maker and
pick out the material. She and the dresser talked as she took the
The dressmaker said that the dress will be ready in time and will be
delivered to the house.
Maria thanks her and walked out of the shop. All sudden Maria felt
like she was being watched and started to walk faster. She called for
a carriage and quickly got in. The driver asked her,
"Miss, are you well?"
"Yes, I felt like I was being followed." Please take to
Minersville 23 Street."
While the drive Maria tries to collect her, of course, no one will be

and again she started walking down the street. Maria sees her house
and turns down to the gates. The gate of the around the house was
white, the house was not that big it a two story house that had two
white pillars and the upstairs had a baloney. The door to the house
flew opened and her mother stepped out another door.
"Daughter you are late you miss tea." You just have to go
tomorrow. I see you later on"
Yes, mother." I will don't worry."
Her mother hurried along and entered and the carriage and it left.
Maria entered the house and put her gloves and on the table and her
purse. Suddenly a maid enters the hallway and saying:
"Oh Miss Maria, your father is having one of his fits:
"I am coming. Dry your tears and get back to work.."
The maid left and Maria went to the father office and went in.
Her father was sitting on his desk with a pile of papers and he was
muttering to himself. He looked up and was going to say something
one he saw Maria.
"Maria, where have you been?" I feel my heartbeat is being
too fast and I am working with moderns."
"Calm yourself down. I help you father, I don't want to be
fatherless before I get married."
"Your right my dear. Come and help get out of this mess."
By the nightfall and the next morning, everyone in the surround towns
heard that Maria was dead. To make this more tragic it happened
after her wedding and she was still wearing her wedding dress.
What happened on that night is still unknown but the police are
still looking into it. There strange part of it that Maria's fiancée
disappeared the police went to question him farther about Maria's
disappearance. It was like all traces of him were gone. The quarters
that he was staying at were all clean-up the only things that were
left were the strange boxes of dirt.
Maria's father spent no expenses looking for the killer of his only
daughter. His wife was to grief struck. She would just sit there in
Maria's room looking out the window, once awhile she takes only broth
and a piece of bread. Maria's father spent all his time at his
office or at his home.
In three days time, an inquest into Maria's death was going to at
the local courthouse. So Maria's father seconds his business partner
Eric to attend the inquest.
"Go to Maria's inquest and find out all the information that
you can, Eric. In the morning I have to meet to the police."
"I will, Robert. You can count on me." I want to know what
happened to Maria."
"Yes, we all do. Since her mother is such a state of grief I
will tell her when the time is right. She might ask you but don't
tell and the information that you might have."
"Of course I won't." I leave that up to handle."
In the meantime, the police were making inquiries on where Count
Dragos. So far the information that he came from old world village in
Romania. Some history of the area had been destroying by fires. The
fires some the records and books and the people had to rebuild a try
to remember its own history.
