The Boggart

Do you ever feel like you are not alone? Do things move in your house? Does your food go bad before the date on the package? Do you ever feel a presence in your room as you sleep, a clammy hand on your face?

You have a boggart. You can’t run. It will follow you from house to house.

Don’t name it. You will give it immense power and it won’t listen to reason.

Sometimes Boggarts live on the land instead of in the house. A farmer will have to contend with the Boggart in order to farm the land.

One time, a Boggart was stopping a farmer from raising crops. They argued until the finally agreed to share the bounty, half each. The farmer asked the Boggart which half he wanted, the half above the ground, or the half below the ground. He wanted the half below the ground.

The farmer planted barley. At harvest time, he reaped the rewards taking his fair share, the top, and left the Boggart with the roots. The Boggart realized he had nothing to show for his half.

The next year, he demanded the top half of the harvest. The farmer agreed. The farmer planted potatoes that year. Again, the farmer took his half and left the Boggart with nothing.

The Boggart flew into a rage but could do nothing since he had agreed to the split. He left the farm, never to return.

If you ever do get a Boggart, hang a horseshow on the door of your house to keep the Boggart away.
