Ghost of the Ashwydds

About

This story was one of those that more or less wrote itself. I got the image of a dark, brooding house (actually the house from The Frighteners if you have to know), and dusty chandeliers. The rest, the girl, the ghost, the electric light, that just flowed out. Logical, clean, or perhaps just the way I view the world.

Here’s what :The Frigtheners:’ house looks like. And it’s a great movie. Go see it.
