House Number Six

I got tired. I rose from the floor with a sore throat, I’ve been up here for about 3 hours and I had only about twenty pictures. My body was craving water. Maybe Mark had some. I peered from the roof to see him sitting in front of the house staring into space. I stretched. What is that? Is that a shadow? Is someone in the house? But Alicia said no one entered the house after the daughter and the governor. It’s coming from that dark corner. Could it be Mark? No way, he’s down there! WHAT IS THIS? I knelt down and put my eye into the lens. I see a silhouette of a human with things draping from its arms. HELL NO! What the ………………………!!!??!!???! Oh…… My………. GOD!!!NO WAY!!


6. Unknown

     Increasing the zoom to the maximum, I narrowed my eyes and peered into the lot of darkness. The silhouette pattered forward. Then it stopped. Step forward. I made out the head moving right and left like it felt someone around. It was a century of passing seconds. The intermittent steps stopped. Step backward. Dwindling slowly, the figure backed into the solitude corner. A chill ran through my spine. What the heck was that? 

     My intuition led me to conclude this was a lady. Twenty minutes ran by, me just sitting on the dusty floor staring into space and throwing out all conclusions possible. Could it be a zombie? No. Too cliche. Maybe someone hired by Alicia just to scare the wits out of me? Don't think so, she obviously doesn't care that much. An illusion? Possibly. After all, I was almost dehydrated. Yes. It was all a trick my mind played on me. Ha! A smile formed across my now placid face. And I was scared. Silly me!

    Well, I definitely need to get some water now, so I don't see ghosts or something! Ghosts.....Halloween...... Maybe I should take a look at my photos first.

 '21 photos'

     Though, I only took 20. I delete the useless ones immediately. Opening the photos I was bewildered and confounded! There is a picture of the figure. Did I take the picture without noticing?

     My fingers felt heavy. I rested them on the camera for support. Click! How could a living thing but insects and microorganisms be here? Nobody was supposed to be in here? Maybe a thief? Ugh! Too many unanswered questions!

     Maybe it wasn't an illusion after all.
