Spooktober 2022 Day 17: Soul

Content warning: implied child endangerment

To this day, I’m still looking for your soul. You lost it during that one game of hide and seek, remember? I don’t know what happened exactly, because you were hiding and I was seeking, and you broke cover before I found you.

But you came from the direction of that old barn where we weren’t supposed to play.

Though we’re grown now, I remember your empty gaze when you came back. You still look at me that way. Hollowed out. Empty. Hungry.

So I’m still looking for your soul. Because I think, if I don’t find it, mine’s next.

Thanks for reading!
