#100WCGU – Wk106 – Prompt: … but there was still enough light… – 106 words – “Whisper”

01 Oct

Dark and cold, the cabin offered shelter from the growing storm my small tent couldn’t.  It was now spring but a cold front had returned a touch of winter.

Fumbling in my backpack, I found a candle and some matches. At least I would have light. Flickering dimly, the candlelight caste shadows around the old cabin. I imagined the lives of those who had once called the cabin home, the shadows their spirits lingering.

Sleep.

I woke with a start, the candle almost gone but there was still enough light to see a presence before it faded.

A sound, perhaps a whisper, “Welcome to my home.”
