As you begin to examine the jewelry on top of the nightstand, you hear a low "Miiiiiiine" and a clattering of bones behind you. You turn around to see the skeletal remains of one of Lord Spookyraven's hundreds of mistresses.
He must not have treated his mistresses very well, because man, is she pissed. And you know what they say about a woman scorned.
She grabs a handful of fake jewels from the nightstand and throws them at your head. Ooh! Eek! Ouch! Eek! Oof! Ugh! Argh!
She grabs a locket from the nightstand and garottes you with it. Ooh! Eek! Ouch! Eek! Eek! Ow!
She unclasps a brooch and pokes you with the pin. Ouch! Ow! Ooh! Eek! Eek!
She grabs you by the shoulders and screams at you. The scream contains the fury of a thousand unreturned letters, and carries with it the aroma you'd expect from something buried under the floorboards for 30 years. Eek! Eek! Ooh! Eek! Eek!
She grabs a handful of fake jewels from the nightstand and throws them at you, but you catch them all and put them neatly back down where they came from.
She tries to hit you with a locket, but you blocket. Er, block it.
She tries to claw your eyes out with her skeletal fingers, but you break a couple of them off and she gives up.
The lumbers toward you, arms outstretched, but then one of her knees gives out and she falls into a heap of bones on the floor. (FUMBLE!)

- Before a trivial update on December 09, 2014, only one jilted mistress per day could be encountered via the Rustic Nightstand.
- The last sentence in the description is a reference to a line from The Mourning Bride by William Congreve. The actual line is, "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
- The hole in the mistress' dress may be a reference to Goldie Hawn's character in Death Becomes Her -- she at one point became the male lead's mistress, and after gaining immortality got shot in the abdomen, leaving a large hole there.
