Not everyone finds the courage to enter an old and abandoned house, because it is not known what is hidden behind the door on the other side and what threats await us.
But today we at laykni.com will tell you about one of the Canadian explorers who is specifically looking for abandoned and creepy places. One day, entering such a house, she realized that she was not alone there …
Leslie Muir hunts down abandoned houses and photographs them. So, a few years ago, she decided to enter a house that had long haunted her and, as she then said, “just stole her heart.” The path to this place had long been overgrown with weeds, the roof had collapsed, and the old and unkempt appearance only spoke of the fact that no human foot had set foot there for a long time.
When the girl went inside, she already wanted to start taking pictures, when she suddenly realized that she was not alone here … Leslie heard some sounds and went to see what was there. She found the lonely elderly Lawrence in the living room.
“It was difficult for him to move around, so he spent most of his time there,” the adventurer said.
He was missing one eye, and the other was afflicted with cataracts. But as it turned out, only he looked frightening, but in fact he is a very pleasant, sweet and kind person. Since then, Lawrence has had a friend. The girl began to regularly come to him, cleaned the house and cooked food. They often had lunch or dinner together.
Leslie learned that the man was hit by a bull and crushed his thigh, but before that he suffered a stroke and all this led to the fact that he was partially paralyzed, so it took the man four whole days to seek medical help.
He also told the girl about the diseases of his brothers and how they lost contact.
Leslie noticed Lawrence’s health was failing, so she moved him from her crumbling home to a local nursing home. And now he is happy, at least he is among other people.
The girl still continues to visit the old man, bringing him her dog named Violet, and her mother prepares gifts for him.
“He just needs a friend… Someone who can make sure he’s okay,” says Muir.
She hopes that Lawrence’s story will inspire people to start communicating with those with whom they have lost contact for some reason.
“Although they are all elderly people, their souls are still full of life, and I feel happy that I met him,” says Leslie.
And the old man feels the same about meeting her: “I’ve always been a lonely person, but she brightened my life.”
