Horror in a Hundred words- To be found on http://hellnotes.com/horror-in-a-hundred-a-chill-night-by-david-wing
Confusion gave way to despair, despair to fear and fear to abject
The wizened floorboards ached and moaned as something descended.
She’d fallen asleep on the living-room sofa but now sat bolt upright
and begged in silence for the fear to flee, as she so clearly should
The smell became visual as it swirled in and out of the bannister
She shivered as the cold reached her shoulders and clamped her eyes
closed as the footsteps halted before the fireplace and grandfather
called time behind her.
