The patron warned, "That place is a ticking time bomb."
Ignoring the warning and laughing about a need for rescue, I attended with a certain amount of humility.
The place was thought by many to be haunted but I did not measure these rumors that had spread like wild fires in the canyon.
I waited in anticipation working myself into quite a state before the guests arrived. Do I act as if I believe?

My accommodating host smiled as if to say, "This is nothing...just wait". My race to spend the day and night with my host seemed totally crazy now.
I realized in my eagerness to witness the paranormal I had been tricked. I must stay forever watching this repeating tragedy until I could "invite" someone to take my place.
My host laughed when leaving. At last he was free.
