Introduction

It was an old house, a house that longed for love, laughter and care. For many years the house played host to exquisite events, but no longer, nothing remained in that house. At least that was what people thought... The man gazed at the house in awe, what once had stood tall and mighty was now dilapidated; encased in the rotten remains of an Ivy plant. Rain seeped through the cracks that time had made.

Fish could be seen again; swimming, almost dancing, at the joy of the sight. Birds, of many different species, from all around filled the sapphire sky with their song; it was a song of hope, a song of joy and life; but mot of all it was a song of victory of the cruel, unforgiving winter.
