Beneath An Ordinary Home Lies An Extraordinary Secret

1. The House: Resting on a woodland field in California, seemingly in the middle of nowhere.

2. The Forest: The day that Chris saw the house in an advertisement, he called the realtor up.

3. The Outside: The outside of the home was stately and beautiful, and Chris couldn’t believe he was so lucky.

4. I’ll Take It: Christopher loved the home, and he also loved the surrounding forest.

5. Perhaps He Was Rash: Perhaps he was being a bit rash, agreeing to purchase a home so quickly.
