Liam stumbled backwards upstairs, oak steps bursting beneath him. “Go away, Grandma! This is my home now,” he gritted.

“The hell it ain’t. And that despicable girl has my favorite ring.” Grandma’s hiss turned his ears icy.

“Not Ava!” Mike reached for his bedroom doorknob. Ava’s muffled screams pierced through the wall. The house shook. But when Mike swung the door open, nothing was there.

  3. The oak steps bursting and the house shaking are great, creepy descriptions. I was a little confused by Liam vs Mike – it felt like there were maybe too many characters in such a short piece.

    1. They were the same character… my bad… I had a change of heart with Mike’s name after the first draft. Thank you for commenting, though. There’s always so much love here ❤️

      1. AH. That makes much more sense. 🙂


  4. How spooky! Ava and the ghost disappeared? Only thing. Are Liam and Mike are the same person maybe? you changed the MC during rewrites?
