Secret Sorceress

Known

As the

Halloween

Neighborhood elf

She labors all year

In her magic workshop

Transforming garage sale finds

Into a cast of characters

Who will inhabit her home’s front yard

Where they can welcome the trick or treaters

Eloise

Charli Mills wants us to talk about whispers for this week’s Carrot Ranch  99-word flash fiction challenge. My offering is BOTS about the infamous former mental hospital, Eloise here in Wayne County Michigan. I can vouch for the fact that this place is haunted, without them having to create an attraction!

Pilar shook as she clutched at her hoodie. It wasn’t the temperature it was the atmosphere. With every step she took in the October darkness, she thought she heard another faint voice.

 Get out

 This is my home

 You are not welcome here

Her head moved like the beam of a lighthouse as she searched for a face. But there was no one in sight. Only dead trees and rocks,

She ran when another voice moaned.

 I died here

 GET OUT

It was a BIG mistake to visit the Halloween attraction on the grounds of a former mental hospital.
