A Cold Room

“OK stop there Frank. We don’t do surnames around here, your first name will do”, said the man in the black suit. The unimposing room was cold and poorly lit. Two chairs, a table, a small electric heater working flat-out without making much difference. Frank sat on his uncomfortable wooden seat facing the man who had introduced himself as Jake. A stern-faced young man. He just sat looking at frank, as if trying to work him out. “Where am I? said Frank. “The afterlife of course”, said Jake. That was awkward, not least because it meant Frank was now dead. That…

Ouiji Board

Scaring and daring seemed the way of things in those days. Younger children were fair game for the older lads on our streets. Clive and me were good friends, we had started primary school together two years previously. Clive had an older brother who never hung around with us. We were seven and I think he must have been around ten. On this particular day during the school holiday he must have been at a loose end.. Although we hadn’t had many of them the long summer holidays were wonderful. The 1960’s don’t seem long ago to me sitting here…

One English Pound

One whole English pound was a lot of money to find. It meant my day of fun at the movies could last a little longer. I don’t even remember what I went to see. I can’t be sure it was such a long time ago. I have seen so many movies since then some good, some bad and others I just can’t remember.

The ones I didn’t like were the horror ones ‘Carrie’, ‘Friday The 13th’, those kind…

The Visit

Sam and Jackie Bradley were delighted they were finally moving to their dream home by the sea. It had been quite a while since they had first seen the old Georgian lighthouse advertised for sale on the internet. They had fallen in love with it immediately, set as it was high on the crumbling cliffs of the wild Yorkshire coastline north of Whitby. Today was the day they had taken possession of it and were visiting from their home in London for three nights to begin sorting the new home before moving in permanently. A lot of the antique furniture that had…

The Underpass

The cab driver didn’t know exactly where the young couple wanted to be and was a little suspicious at first. Well dressed, clean, clearly just in on one of the many trains from the south and they want a taxi to the roadside in the post-industrial wilderness south of the city. They seemed nice kids so he went with his instinct and took them. “What exactly is it you’re looking for kids there’s nothing in that part of town. It’s just a wasteland,” said the cab driver. “There’s something new we’ve heard about on the internet we’re going to try,”…
