One night a man was going home from town. As he was passing an old fort he heard fine music playing inside in the fort. He went into the fort and started to dance to the music. He could see nobody. After a while he went home and felt very sick. He was taken to hospital next day and was very bad and the doctors said he had a fairy stroke. While he was sick he spent all the time talking about the music and the fairies and he said he was going to go with the fairies. He died in a couple of days later.
