Its late at night, you are restless, can’t sleep. A walk on the beach seems like a fine idea. No one is around. Just the sounds of the waves and the wind. The lonely wail of an offshore buoy, consistent and haunting.
You hear the sounds of your feet as you walk through the sand toward the path to the beach.
Nearing the path you wonder if it was such a good idea to walk out here alone at night. You hear rustling, the wind, you wonder? The buoy, beating it’s tune to the rhythm of the waves. A fog rolling in, brings a feel of unease to you. Looking down the path you wonder. Should I go? What was that sound? You strain to hear, but the sound of the waves and the wind leave you wondering if you really heard anything at all. And suddenly, the hairs on your arms rise……..

    Oh derid… I think this may be my favourite piece of your work to date. I love what you have done with it, and your story to go along with it {{shudders}} perfectly spooky! This could be a scene from a murder mystery movie.

    Thanks for all your comments. This comes from a late night walk on the beach. The fog rolled in, and I started hearing things. Now when I look at this path at night, I can’t go any further.
