I remember hunting for our first house on a tiny budget and visiting a number of fixer-upper type places that felt eerily like someone had been murdered there. 😂
So...um... is this house still on the market? The old lady in the rocker sounds like a perfect housemate to me.. quiet, invisible, polite. And ...a fresh start, away from the city....with peach trees. Sounds like heavens. One of your best stories , Justin!
Well, given the granny was just making a blanket and not bothering the living, that seems like an overreaction.
Yikes! Nice ending. Was certain Sylvia had found her perfect place. Well done, Justin!
Whew! I was afraid something would happen to Grace when Sylvia left her alone. I’m glad she’s ok. Well paced and surprising!
I wasn't expecting that. 🤣 Somethings are just too good to be true. Nice one, Justin.
That sure took a turn! Better now than the next day! Great read, Justin!
Great story!! I wasn't expecting that ending!!
Great story, I love the Catskills. Great build-up to a great ending.
Beautiful imagery, Justin. You can smell the peaches and breathe in the clear air. I love this story. That old lady did not want anyone else living in her house!! The accompanying photograph is perfect.
Fun one Justin
Outstanding! I didn't see that twist coming and audibly gasped whilst the hairs on my neck stood on end.
Great story, Justin!! There was the perfect amount of tension and a feeling of 'too good to be true' running through this one! I was really worried for Grace for a minute there. Poor granny, though, I bet she gets lonely out there on that porch!
Clever ending! Great job. I think I would be running out too.
