The whole story of Madame Miniurecanal all started during the turn of the century when a Creole lady owned the old house and she was nicknamed "Mini-Canal." She was not a very famous person. One afternoon, no one knows why, she went on the of the three-story house and hung herself. Before doing this she killed her companion a small white dog. This was what seemed to be the end of "Mini-Canal.". He lived with his family with his sister Teresa and his grandparents. Ramon always remembered when he and his sister would get in trouble, they would be punished by being forced to sit alone on the staircase the third floor at the house. He would see a woman dressed in white walking down the stairs. He described her to be very Creole looking. He also said she was accompanied by a small white dog. Terese saw the woman the most and started calling her "Mini-Canal." She had no idea why....This just seemed like a good name for a ghost. Everyone started calling her that, even a cousin who was visiting the house and started making fun of the idea that the place was haunted. The boy was walking around saying over and over "Mini-Canal." Later that night, while going to bed the boy began screaming in his room. When the lights were turned on his cheek was bright red,as though someone had slapped him...Was that the end of "Mini-Canal"?
