Legacy


A bizarre legacy, she thought, Aunt Beth’s spidery handwriting begging her to leave the sitting tenant alone. She did at least want to see the place.

There it was. Right on the edge of the forest, it seemed on the point of merging with it. Surrounded by trees, overgrown with creepers. In summer it must all but disappear.

The house looked deserted. Who would choose to live here? When she tried the door she felt the house shudder. A cold breeze sprang up. She’d swear she heard it gusting: “Leave!”

Best to forget about the place, she thought, driving away.

My second entry for this week’s 100wcgu: my photo for “merge” got me in the writing vein. My first attempt was Neighbours.

    1. Thanks. A story should really be self-contained, though. I guess the photo tempted me into writing a “teaser” rather than a story… We live and learn.

    1. Thanks, I really love the photo myself. I’m not sure it would be possible to deliver on the promise of the story. Thanks for your kind words.

Let me know what you think...
