Who’s There?

Petals dusted her feet as Laurie coasted past the purple door, chained and set back from the sidewalk. It was a mere blip in her skip until she heard knocking from inside.

She turned back, stood before it, and knocked. “Who’s there?”

“Open the door. Help me. I’m trapped,” a voice whispered, raspy and breathless.

She rattled the door. “I’ll get help.”

The authority had no key, so he shot at the lock. The door creaked and swung open.

“Just like I told you.”

Before them was a cement slab.

“Nothing.”

But Laurie felt something. A chill to the bone.

Here are more stories from the Fictioneers.

For those who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a peaceful and restful holiday.

  1. I love the petals and the blip in her skip! Thought she might be a ghost at the beginning.Thought mafia crime as well with the cement slab. So many possibilities for the reader’s mind with this one! I love that about your writing.
    Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving! xoxo

  2. Ooooo, chilled to the bone here, too, Amy. Nice work. I could see it happening.

    Sorry I have missed your posts since I have been writing sporadically. I hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving today and all the best. We’ll be in touch, I promise.

    Five out of five slabs.

    1. Actually, Kent, I’ve been pretty sporadic myself. I doubt you’ve missed much, if you’ve missed anything at all! Thanks so much. I hope you had a nice holiday too. Slabs…now that has an interesting ring to it.
