Introduction Edit

Laura is a ghost that haunts Tony's Farmhouse.

Laura was about six when she died. She was Cassie's only playmate as a child.

Biography Edit

Laura and Cassie used to play together when Cassie was a child—especially Nide-n-Seek.[6]

Laura, the spirit of the youngest girl in a family Tony had murdered around the turn of the last century. Her family home was an old German-built farmhouse that sat on sixty pretty acres outside Philadelphia. He didn't take the family's refusal to sell very well. Of course, he could have simply bought another house in the area, but I doubt that even crossed his mind. Both of them losing their families to Tony's ambition gave Laura and Cassie a bond. Whatever the reason, she had refused to stay in her grave under the old barn out back and roamed the estate at will.
