The Charlotte Moments #2

by

This is an ideal building for a haunting.

From its gothic spires, nailing the crumbling edifice to the ground, past windows choked with the grime and phlegm of three hundred winters, to the imposing main doors, black-rusted and immovable, the whole building has a corpse-like air.

Should you stay too long inside, the air will clog your throat and fill your lungs as a crypt fills with dust. The light here has the quality of glaucoma so if you see movement you will not believe it.

Unbelieved, unobserved, we belie the silence as she walks close beside me..

    Equally haunting and beautiful, this one certainly gets the hair on the back of your neck standing to attention. Superbly written, Drew.

    Thanks Horrorshow. I must admit I get the feeling something is missing but I have no idea what. Glad you like it though, thanks for the great comment.
