Ooh, now who doesn't like to read a creepy short story?
In this novelette, Sara Eriksson leaves San Francisco for a small village in the Northern Cascades, where she rents an old cabin. Hidden in the forests, the cabin has been a silent witness to mysterious events long forgotten. But sometimes the past has a way of resurfacing…
Sara wrinkled her nose and took a purposeful whiff of her coffee. The cabin had not seen frequent use, judging by the musty smell that lingered throughout the house. She opened the window, and along with the fresh air, the sounds of the back yard flooded in. Chirping birds resonantly celebrated the spring. Somewhere in the distance, a creek was softly murmuring. She sighed. This was perfect! As she took it all in, the thought appeared before she even noticed it forming.
Dad would have loved to photograph this.
A sharp pang gripped her chest. She rubbed her eyes, suddenly feeling drained. She was so tired of grieving. How long before these uninvited thoughts stopped making her so sad?
