Sweet Saturday Sample

This week I'm  sharing more of a short paranormal story that so far has failed to find a home.

I’d locked both my front door and the side gate into the garden before coming outside. So how had an intruder gained access to my private space? And more to the point, I wondered, as panic and sanity warred for supremacy, where was he?

“See what I mean?” The indignant speaker demanded.

“No, I don’t!” My fear of intruders, and the absurdity of the situation, raised my voice to full throttle.

“That’s because you’re not looking.” Did I detect amusement in that voice?


Some invisible intruder dared to laugh at my situation!  I sprang up from the rocker allowing anger boot my fear away.

The sound of vitriolic cursing near my toes converted my anger into astonishment. "Watch where you put those clumsy feet of yours!"

“What the...” I bent over and peered at the decking, then reared back, as before my very eyes, the beige moth morphed into a human form about two feet high.

One, very angry male, human form.
