In the Dead of Night
Trigger warning: alludes to physical assault * * * Thump, thump, thump. The resounding sound of flesh pounding on the apartment door roused Sheena from her slumber. She sat up with wide eyes, her heart beating up through her throat. The room was swathed in sheets of black, the lack of light disorienting.Heather Hubler
I stared at the bill and sighed. Another bill to pay. This time, it was my credit card. Next time, it would be my electric bill.Daniella Cressman
There’s A Creature in The Woodshed
Growing up, it’s easy to ignore stories of monsters who lived here before us. Like they’re just fairytales our parents tell us to put us to sleep, or scare us out of misbehaving. We have enough pride at a certain age to scoff, roll our eyes, and claim how fake it all is.Marley Starr
Mystery of the Flannan Isles Lighthouse
“A dreadful accident has happened at Flannans. The three Keepers, Ducat, Marshall and the occasional have disappeared from the island.” Telegram from Captain Jim Harvie of relief ship Hesperus, reporting accident at Flannan Islands Lighthouse. December 26, 1900.Jen Mouzon
Moths to a Flickering Light
At night we used to walk for hours. After dark, the light was strange on the west side of the city. The whiff of sulfur came from the streetlamps. They glowed a poisonous orange color that robbed the skin of its beauty and the sky of its stars. A cheap form of lighting, or so they said.Amethyst Qu
The Orchard Boy
It was packed full of people at the Hutcherson farm on October 20th, 2013. It was a Sunday, meaning each family had their children out and picked apples for the day. The line to get in wasn't that long, having due to a traffic guard right in the middle to guide each of us. Once parked, everyone would leave their vehicles and head straight toward the orchard.
Monte Cristo Homestead in Junee, New South Wales, Australia
I wrote about a true crime case a while back that took place in Australia in the 1940s that continues to boggle minds today. This is my first dive into a haunted house in Australia, though. The entire continent has a long and rich history, going back at least 65,000 years of indigenous Australians. Travel with me now as we head over to look at a place known as Australia’s most haunted house in New South Wales, the Monte Cristo Homestead.J.A. Hernandez

I met the other me today.
Shaking my head did little to relieve the grogginess I felt. A bad combination of late night, poor diet, and other destructive decisions led to an even worse morning. Even so, I still had to force myself awake, using the annoyance of my blaring morning reminder that I would likely be late to work.Thomas Grey
The Monkey Man
On summer days like these in El Salvador everyone was always ready to go to the watering hole or the beach at a moment’s notice. What made the waterfall special was that no one in the neighborhood really knew about it except for me, Emilio, Sergio and Javier.Oscar Templeton
A movie played in the background, and we lay there whispering a million sweet nothings with no words passing between us. That was when I felt her soft touch as she ran the tip of her nose across my cheek. I turned to look at her and the world around us became irrelevant. All that mattered was right there in front of me. She had that “kiss me” look in her eyes, and for a brief moment, I forgot how to respond.Jefferey A Ayers
