The Cross House
Let the games begin!
This is the fifth in a series of Discovery posts, and all based on the Bo Adventure!
It was a dark and stormy night as Bo and I crept into the abandoned, unlighted carriage house. The house shuddered from thunder, and the windows, for an instant, and then another instant, and another, became electrified with the alarming brilliance of successive lightning bolts.
Slowly, we made our way up the creaking staircase, pushing cobwebs out of our way.
Thunder EXPLODED, piercing the eerie quiet.
And the house shuddered again.
We continued our cautious ascent, step by creaking step.
Our bodies also shuddered. From fear, as the storm raged, as the house shook, and as electric bolts seemingly shot straight through the windows.
Nature ROARED as Bo and I, at last, stepped onto the second floor. We clung to each other, terrified, our eyes wide.
Or…maybe…I am making all this up. Maybe it was, instead, a perfectly fine afternoon as Bo and I went inside the carriage house.
OK. It was.
But, without a dramatic introduction (with cobwebs, no less!), I worry that the following may not prove, um, terribly interesting.
So, I beg your indulgence and hope you will think otherwise…
The diamonds on the right make sense. They are either full- or half- or quarter-diamonds.
But on the left? Huh? What? The diamonds just thoughtlessly crash into the edge of the sash, artful geometry be damned.
Every room on the second floor has diamond sashes. And all of these make sense.
Except for the tower room.
It kinda looks like the sashes used to be larger and were cut down to squeeze into the window frames of the tower room.
But I don’t think this is the answer.
And Bo had no answer, either.
So, a profound mystery…
