The Previous Owner #27


I got up from the counter and put some money next to Mo.

"Thanks, Mo, for the food and the talk. I'm staying in town tonight at the motel. Tomorrow I'll go back to the house and make a decision then. Don't worry. I'm a big boy."

She got up from the barstool, straightening her dress out. She leaned over and kissed me on the forehead.

"You be careful. Like I said, that house changes people."

I thanked her again and walked out into the early night. The wind was rustling through twisted trees and the crickets played their symphony.

    Yeah, she was supposed to be a sympathetic character, just....odd.
