Echoes of Home


My footsteps echoed like a whisper from the ceiling above, and with each and every step, the placing of my feet became lighter as if not wanting to disturb any other occupants who might lurk within the house.

With each stride further ventured, the more the shimmering light from behind faded. I slid my sweating palms firmly across the withered wallpaper, its delicate pattern tearing instantly from the touch of my fingers. The hall soon came to an expected end, displaying two entrances that stood at either side. The first remained sturdily in place, unable to be budged from its swollen frame.

With only a slight urge to investigate, I attempted to gain access to the next room. As luck would have it, the door opened and I curiously peered inside. It appeared to be the main living area. And although my thoughts remained doubtful, it became immediately clear there was no issue in regards to the power supply in this room.

For the first time without worry, I entered and closed the door contently behind me. It was quite spacious at first glance and already cluttered with some fairly dated furnishings. I expected nothing more from this kind of dwelling. Not to my taste exactly, but I was more than happy to spend the night here and judge the remainder of the cottage when visibility was not at its worst.
