Welcome to My Home

This was home for more years than he could remember. Age left little need for sleep, plenty of time to wander the halls, walls, and little known passages he’d built during the construction of his manor.

As a young man he was not sure what to do with the secret passageways, but the idea itself was exciting. Several wives, mistresses, business partners and competitors shared the intrigue.

Now they were permanent guests of his lovely home. So many companions – what more could a once abandoned child want? He reflected that his life was full, as he merged into the wall.

  1. Ouch.. was his name Bluebeard per any chance… ?

  2. Dear Anne, Super scary story, and I think perhaps he is collecting a family, guests, or whomever is unfortunate to drop by. I’ll warn the girl scouts! Nan 🙂

  3. Anne, That was creepy. O_o Just one big happy (?) family of ghosts. Sounds like he’s more than likely the only happy one there. It’s not exactly a bed and breakfast. Well written. 🙂 —Susan

  4. Permanent guests: housemates or prisoners? Hmmm…very interesting. The last paragraph just opens everything wide open for so many possibilities. Love it! 🙂

  5. Dear Anne,

    Is it just me or is it creepy in here? Nicely done.



  6. Ooh! This has a Poe feel to it. I like the last paragraph, especially!
