Childhood Games

Shadows along hallway edges. I hold the candelabra, careful to keep my body in the light. Fetid ooze drips down the walls.

Echoes of my brother’s voice screaming the shadows will eat you.

Our childhood game played as adults and my brother’s delusions.

Or so I believed until he disappeared.
