He felt it as soon as he walked in the house..THE EVIL..yet one look at his new brides face wiped that feeling away..she loved it, and all he wanted to do is please her, and please her he did when she turned to him with “I Love it” on her lips..he turned to the real estate agent and said “We’ll take it”…from that day his world was turned upside down..The voices started not long after moving day, telling him that “she was no good” his beautiful wife…convincing him he would be better without her..whispering those terrible things he should do to “Fix” her..Now he sits at the top of the stairs looking down at the bottom where she lays crumbled and not moving..flashes of remembrance coming in and out..her running with him on her heals, screaming for her to “come back”…her slipping..reaching for him, tumbling..and now all he can hear is the voices again..claiming him, he knows now he is forever here in this evil house..IN ITS GRIP..

    GASP! You really do freak me out sometimes Kim! ;-) I saw the image and you know how I love those forlorn looking houses you do so well…and then I read the story! WOW! I didn’t know you could write! And boy can you write! You should do that professionly if you don’t do already. I got tortally sucked into that…AWESOME! Just great! Now I did favorite the lil house but it is never going to look like it would have before…I guess that’s good? ;-)

  • lol..I didn’t know I could write I sit down with an image and I can just hear a I start writing, never knew I had that in me until recently..I really enjoy it :) Thanks so much Marie for such encouraging words.
