‘One need not be a chamber to be haunted.’ – Emily Dickinson

Perhaps May did get the house just to please her friends, but now that she had it she realised that they were right all along. Her house did make her happy. Unfortunately, Blank and Ambrosia were not impressed. Fortunately, May didn’t care. She was tired of seeing their disapproving looks. She was tired of opening her mouth to explain herself.
She closed the window shutters and locked the front door. Just to be sure, she swallowed the key and nailed the shutters. See? It’s warm in here. Dark and safe and cosy. Just don’t look outside. It’s fine. Everything is fine.
