Synopsis: A man has rented a cottage in the countryside to finish his dissertation about witchcraft. He encounters a young girl in scruffy clothing who invites herself to live with him. She turns out to be somewhat older than she first seems, and much more beautiful than the first impression was. And she turns out to have some very special powers, and turns out to be extremely persistent if she doesn't get what she wants. When angry she has almost limitless psi- powers. As the protagonist tries to study those powers, he makes her angry in purpose - something he comes to regret.
