The place was a wreck. He told her not to touch the fridge. He would take care of it when he had time. But, he got busy. She wanted to help and didn’t understand his vehemence in dissuading her. She didn’t understand until she found it. Maybe it was a trick, some sort of Halloween prank? No, they were real. Eyes in a jar staring back at her.
I’m in a weird mood tonight. Maybe it’s from eight hours of french language study today? Anyways, I searched my brain for a story and thought I wouldn’t find one. But, this Halloween-esq flash jumped to the forefront.
