Walk Away

[OSWC2019 Day Thirty-One: The End?]

Lydia walked slowly down the driveway, expecting something odd to happen at any moment. Nothing did. The only sounds she could hear were the perfectly normal ones of people going about their lives.

When she reached the gate she turned and looked back. The house stood there just as it had for years, dark and silent and lifeless. Nothing moved inside it. Not a single sound came from it.

She slowly made her way home, deep in thought. She'd only gone in to prove the rumours were false. Now she had to admit she was wrong.


Rumours circulated about the old Lewis house. Everyone knew someone who'd seen something odd there. Everyone had their own story to tell about it. Some were stranger than others. Some were more frightening than others. But they never stopped anyone visiting.
