Spooktober 2022 Day 19: Legend

Content warning: none apply

Legend had it, because of course legend did, that you took unwanted things. Neglected things. Folks made sure to pull items out of storage every few months so they’d be there when they were needed again. 

Otherwise, you’d take them. 

I hadn’t been pulled out of storage in so long. So I climbed into a closet and didn’t leave. 

Eventually, long, long fingers groped around in the dark. Felt over my face. 

My heart hammered. This was it. 

You sighed. “Look. You don’t count. I know you don’t believe it, but someone out there still wants you around.”



Thanks for reading!
