 Doctor's Memo

Once again, the memo is printed in colored overlays. 

The hidden message in this memo reads: 

  • "I WOULD TRADE STRENGTH FOR FREEDOM." 

In this memo, Dr. Oliver speaks of placing Isabella on a new medication which will supposedly help her. 

The anchoress Dr. Oliver refers to is Julian of Norwich, who fell ill and became delusional with visions on her deathbed before making a miraculous recovery. 

Doctor's Photo 

Grace took this picture using a pinhole camera and a prism. 

  • It would appear the good doctor has a demon inside him and is not as good-intentioned as he would like Grace to believe.

 Enchanted Paper

This is a gift bestowed upon us from Grace. 

It is representative of the soil and is meant to be used in the ritual described in Grace's accompanying letter. 

  • When placed in a bowl of water, per Grace's instructions, most of the paper will dissolve, leaving only the robin. 
  • "ROBIN" is the password for the "Dreams Part 2" blog

 Feather

This is a gift bestowed upon us from Grace. 

It is representative of the sky and is to be used in the ritual described in Grace's accompanying letter. 

Letter from Grace 

In this letter, Grace expresses her animosity toward Dr. Oliver, after having taken his picture through a prism. 

Grace speaks of someone who can help us. Someone who has answers but is where there is "lightning" and she is not willing to, but we can. 

  • Who is this person? 

Grace refers to three elements: soil, sky, and sea. 

  • Soil = enchanted paper 
  • Sky = feather 
  • Sea = water 

Prism 

This is a gift bestowed upon us from Grace, so that we may see things that aren't visible to the naked eye. 

 Scanned Diary Pages

The sign language at the top of the first page translates to: 

  • "A TEST" 

The semaphore (flag) code translates to: 

  • "ARAWN" 

Who or what is Arawn? 

Could this be the "friend" Isabella was communicating with in the woods? 

Isabella talks about her dreams. This is hinting at which password-protected blog we can now access on the website: "Dreams Part 2".

Spirit Alphabet Note 

The message translates to: 

  • "HUSH DEAR BABY. HEAR THE RAIN. HUSH AND SLEEP. BE CALM AGAIN." 

The numbers found in the "Dreams Part 2" blog can be applied to this note. 

  • Shift each letter in the decoded message backward the appropriate number following the sequence found in the blog. 

The shifted message reads: 

  • "KAYLA I MISS YOU PLEASE YARROW KEY IS SUMMERTIME HELP ME." 

 The Blue House Passage

This is a fictional story that seems to relate to Isabella's situation of being ill.
