Happy Six Sunday! Hope everyone had a good week, and thanks for stopping by and commenting. FYI, the other participants can be found here. Be sure to check them out.

Below, these six pick up where last week’s left off. Dylanie is on her bedroom porch at Oakleigh, and the man who’s been calling her name and asking to come in is now standing next to her (she said yes):

This close, it’s obvious he’s not much older than me, maybe a few years. He’s the most human, solid-looking spirit I’ve ever encountered—if that’s what he is.

“Go ahead,” he says, reading my mind.


“Touch me. You want to.”

Gah! The smarm.
