WANTED: A SOUL.

Do not read this story out loud at night. Do not read this story in front of a mirror. Do not. Never ever. Do these two things at the same time. The first time it happened, I was about five years old. My mother was out of town I think. We were left with her … Continue reading WANTED: A SOUL.
