Ariana is a recluse. She is also a very wealthy recluse. The story is that she was in love and engaged to be married to a man and he was killed in the war. But the rumor is that he was never killed in the war, instead, he ran off with another woman and they moved far away.
When Ariana’s parents died she was the only living heir and inherited a great deal of money. No one knows just how much. I sure would like to know how much.
Arianna had a house built. It was no ordinary house. It was a house on top of her parent’s house. Someone told my sister that she just wanted something different than everyone else. But the rumor is she wants to see far far away and watch for her lover coming back to get her. She still believes he will come back to get her and she wants to make sure he will be able to find her.
Ariana is a recluse. She has no friends. Everyone is afraid to be friends with her. They all say she’s flat-out crazy. That’s what I hear anyway. But then, you know how people talk.
