100 word fiction: The house around the corner

100 word fiction: The house around the corner


“Haven’t you felt eerie around that house?”

“Everytime I pass by the place, I feel a certain sense of dread. While the lights are always on and the gardens manicured quite well, I have never seen anyone around.

“Whoa!” He seemed horror struck.

The two friends had just shifted to the locality and found the things happening in the house quite mysterious.

“The other day I had to pause near the house for some work and I actually felt someone brush past me. But when I looked around, there was no one. It was quite a test of my character.”

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.

      I guess that’s a perfect way to put it. Alert to a lot of dangerous possibilities.

  2. We all have a sixth sense about places, and sometimes people. Handy.

      Oh true that. Guess sometimes though we don’t end up using the sixth sense in a proper way :D.
