This story mainly took place in Marta's and Johns house.
Marta and John lived in a two story farmhouse on a dirt road far from thw town,

Houses out in open land are the best, you have plenty of space to play around and not disturb your neighbors.

Nobody knew who he was or where he came from,Marta and John found him with only a note. The young couple decided to keep him while waiting if anybody would come back to pick him up. The boy wouldn't speak he would tap things, and then they figured out that Jacob did not have the ability to speak.
