Silent stairs

She started up the endless stairs, her mind racing.  “Who could have sent the message?”  “Why did they want to come here, a place that had left her so with so many memories and caused her so much pain?”

Her legs beginning to shake, she could literally hear the frantic beating of her heart. She stopped, listening for any sound, any sign of someone ease’s presence.

Nothing. Nothing human, anyway, the howl of the wind outside the abandoned light house, an odd creaking above her as if someone was there. She clung to the rail, her consciousness fading. He smiled, carrying her away.

    Oh, eerie! It’s quite image thinking of her being carried down those stairs. Nice take.

    I love the eerie mood of this, with the storm outside and her seemingly all alone. Especially since I’m sitting here alone in the dark as I read it.🙂

    Dear Beebee,

    Lots of intrigue here, I think I’d have preferred it to stop just before that final line, leaving me wondering, but I’m wondering either way!
