Lee and Devon take shortcuts from the public pool on their way to the home of Lee's grandmother. The route travels through the backyard of the “Witch's House,” and the day is perfect to go inside the house and explore. The boys might not get another opportunity. The “witch,” Mrs. Dohrman, had just move away, so the structure supposedly stood empty. More important, the summer afternoon is bright and warm.
Two days ago, Lee had watched the witch's belongings packed into a moving truck, but the kid had no details to report to his friend Devon. Besides stained and torn antique furniture, everything removed from the two story, red-brick home had been wrapped in opaque plastic or sealed inside cardboard boxes. Lee classifies anything old and scarred and still works to be antique.
