"Say Goodnight..."

A mother once told his son:

'The old house that lays upon the hill,
locked away behind the trees,
why it's haunted; should you visit there,
you'll hear The Voice and you will freeze.'

He never listened.

   The horror movies were right. Uncontrollably, my heart rate rose as my feet shuffled along the damp, crooked floorboards - glistening with obscure moisture in the ominous moonlight. I was shaking. Each movement of the decrepit building in the seemingly still air sent mortifying ripples through my skeleton, forcing my nerves into an extreme sensitivity. As I passed apprehensively through the remains of door frames into unfamiliar, sinister rooms, my nose hair stood on end - detecting the foul and unnerving stench that lingered within the residence. I was cold.

   Oh, so cold.

   The natural warmth of a human being had left me, tainting my remains with a harsh, crushing, impenetrable ice. It seemed neither the largest spark nor the warmest flame free me from the glacier my body had become. I was trapped - the house was inescapable.

Somewhere, an owl hooted in desperation.

              Nearby, a floorboard groaned mercilessly, echoing throughout the ruins.

                              Behind me, a figure breathed into my ear, scraping its way into my skull, crudely clutching the very air out of my lungs.                                                                                               


"Say Goodnight..." 


A slash, a screech. One final rush of warmth flowed through me.

The final rush,

the last,

the very last.
