Probably should’ve held this one back for a month, but look on it as a pre-Hallowe’en gift.
I’ve always had a soft spot for stories that don’t give all the answers, and as I write these short stories I’m realising how perfect the form is for horror/creepy tales. If we don’t know what happens next, our imaginations kick in, filling the blanks with our own, personal horrors.
Tenancy Agreement is one of those kind of stories. I tried adding some kind of explanation, but that left the story feeling flat. With an ambiguous ending, the reader gets to decide on the main character’s eventual fate.
You can read Tenancy Agreement here, and the complete list of stories (almost 80 of them now!) can be found here.
