In the spirit of October and Halloween, I wrote a horror short story; don’t worry, it’s not too scary. It does have some ghosts and a bit of a thrill.
Clifford’s family died in a house fire one year ago, and since then he’s been frequenting a local clinic to see therapist Sarah Gilbert.
Desperate to be able to sleep at night without being awoken by nightmares, he pleads with her for help. As he has seen other clients with them, he asks for sound therapy in form of the records she keeps in her office.
For the first time in a long time, Clifford is able to drift off to sleep with the help of the record. It doesn’t last long though, as he is awoken in the middle of the night paralyzed and staring into the eyes of something not of this world.
What is lingering over Clifford and what does it want? What does it have to do with the record? And is it linked to doctor Gilbert?
