Buyer Beware – A Spooky Microprose
It wasn’t until after moving she heard the rumors. Untimely deaths, mysterious disappearances. The house had sold three times in the last two years. She heard something fall and a shrill cry upstairs. She rushed to check on the children. A pale woman stood before her. She looked through her, “I couldn’t stop him.” she sobbed. But when she hit the lights, nothing was there.
This was chilling! I think you did a nice job setting this ghost story and little snippet left me wanting to read even more.
Ooh this was spooky. I really liked your choice of the title and the picture to amp up the horror.
This really plays on your fear of the unknown when moving into an older house. I loved that your ghost talked and could be seen in the cover of darkness, but disappeared in the light. Well done!
