I was certain the house was haunted, and after much work to try to dispel the creature, I determined that magic was to no avail. In desperation I asked a local priest I knew to perform an exorcism. He complied, with the only result being that the night after he sprinkled holy water around the house, I was sprinkled in my bed by water that most likely came from a rather dirty horse trough.
