Still Halloween, yays!

For some reason, a second story came to me today. It's a shade longer than the other one, so: here you go. Now that I'm back upstairs for the evening (and I spent an hour or so this afternoon practicing), I'm going to record both stories later, but it'll have to be after our few treaters have trickled away, or else we'll have doorbells on the audio file. "Strength," by the way, is in the title because it occurred to me that the story kind of played into the reverse of that tarot card, and that it would kind of be fun to write a series. He claimed that the thing he saw ran away on four legsCollapse )

P.S. Regarding the previous story: I like the tension of open endings better than resolving things in stories this short, but if you go back to the previous story, I did actually use a word, a single word, that should give you an idea of exactly what the woman found in her house. The story isn't really about "Ooo, guess what it really was"; it's more about, "Okay, so that's what it really is, and there's nothing she can do about it."
