Arthur Harris is a best selling author who loves to write horror stories based on the nightmares of our small town. Since he moved here that is all anyone in Grey Hills will talk about at least it was until my brother’s body washed up in Wicker Lake yesterday.
Shades of Blue
“Hey mom, could I dye my hair blue? You know like Sherri’s” I asked her one day on my way home from school. I was in the fourth grade and had been sick and the doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me. She said we’ll see and that she would talk to my dad that night about it. From what she has told me about the conversation with my dad, her pitch was that I had so much going on at the time and had so many tests coming up it’s not really a big request. They both were in agreement that if it made me happy I could do it.
