Into the Ceiling

Sunday Sketch 69 - Terry Whiborne

Sunday Sketch 69 – Terry Whidborne

“Chris, I think I saw someone in the yard…”

“Babe, if there was someone in the yard the sensor light would go off. Even the possums set it off.”

The flicker of a shadow across the walls was laughed off as shifting branches. The tap-tap-tap on the window was the same. The door thud-thudded, it was the breeze.

It was just the breeze.

I heard the door creak open, fingertips curled around the frame.

She whispered it was just a dream.

I felt his touch, heard his whispered voice.

He smiled, as he touched me.

I saw him climb. Into the ceiling.

He’s gone now.

I checked.

But still I feel his stare, in through the window at night.
