CURTAINS AND FANBLADES

Millie sat in a creaky wooden rocking chair and stared at a slowly dying cornfield each day at dusk. She always held her head in her hands, avoided going in the house for as long as she could. For she knew, that when the corn withered away, she would have to face what was inside. That which revealed itself in the dark. Can she face her haunted past? A.L. Mengel crafts a hypnotic story of betrayal where things are not always what they seem.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR

Jeremy DePatrick doesn't remember the exact moment his son died. He just remembers the moment when it all ended - after the mourners had left and the grieving began. But a knock on the door in the middle of the night forces him down a path of remembrance. 

He also doesn't understand why his wife doesn't want to sleep with him anymore. She doesn't seem to care, seemingly lost in a trance. Jeremy wants to open the door, to face his fears, and move past the grief. But he always hesitates. 

For what is on the other side of the door may not be what he expects...
