Voices in Stone

Maggie had stopped listening to the fascinating commentary by Jake. She had taken in every word the tour director said, she hadn’t missed any of it, but at this moment instead, she stared at the ruins of a castle.  

“It’s known to have ghosts…” Jake concluded, but Maggie didn’t hear.

 Her tour would include the ruins of this castle once occupied by her clan; her third great grandfather, his three wives, and many children. He disappeared without a trace.

As she wandered the ruins, she felt a presence. A ghostly whisper called her, “Stay away, you’ll be next.”


Thanks for reading
