A random act of nature led him to investigate what he assumed was nothing more than a power box. It was driving him nuts seeing the rusty object partially unearthed and ruining the way his lovely garden looked. But when a professional landscaper stopped by to rebuild his damaged land, he was stunned to find that the box contained a ton of secrets.

The Emanuel family lived in Todt Hill, Staten Island, and they never really gave the unsightly box that lay in their backyard much thought. Matthew Emanuel had lived in this home for about four years along with his wife Maria and his son. Although they knew every inch of their property by heart, there was one corner that hadn’t been explored. And the family had no idea that a mystery awaited to be discovered.

The family always assumed that the prize lying in wait in the corner of the backyard was nothing more than an electric box where electric pole wires were kept. Initially, the box was embedded so deep in the soil that no one really noticed it. But then, Mother Nature decided to do her thing, and the box was no longer inconspicuous.

The US East coast was hit by strong storms in early 2018. These storms wrecked the Emanuel family’s yard. The plants and flowers were uprooted and so were the trees. Matthew himself was proud of his backyard, and he wanted to restore it to the way it was. But shortly after the storms had passed, he noticed something by the side of the fence. It was the box, and it was more visible than it had ever been before. But what was inside it? It was only a matter of time before curiosity got the best of them, and the Emanuel family uncovered the truth.

It was obvious that the box hadn’t been moved in a very long time, so Matthew decided to take a better look. The box was covered in rust. It was also full of poison ivy too. This made it difficult for anyone to get their hands on it. So, the family forgot about the box. But by the time spring came along, the family was stunned by the object that stuck out from the beautiful green pasture in their yard. Soon, Matthew decided to reach for his phone and make a call.
