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.

Hey Finn, did I see that you are going to be doing a workshop for HerStry this year? Way cool!
I am- my second with them. I’m also teaching a six week flash course with Kimberly Cooper Griffin. 🙂
Also at HerSTry? I didin’t see that one on the calendar, so i’ll go back and look!
