What's that loud breathing?
Why are the lights out?
Damn, is it cold in here?
*Snort* Okay, I'll stop, lol. ;)
Since I had so many comments I picked two winners. :) Emails are being sent out too. Respond and let me know I have the correct email addy, then I'll send the PDF on to ya.
And the winners are:
Two years ago I would've said no I don't believe in ghosts. I'm not sure I really do now... but since Mom died I've smelled the body lotion she always bought from Victoria Secrets at odd times. No one, and I mean no one, in this house wears perfume or cologne--and they sure as hell don't wear what she wore.
I'm allergic to the most perfumes and the older kiddo has asthma. Candles, air fresheners... anything with a scent I'm very careful with because I never know what'll set me or the older one off. All the kiddo's friends know better than come in my home and spray perfume.
So... can't explain why sometimes I smell what Mom wore. All I can tell you is that I do. Is it memory? My brain playing tricks? Wishful thinking on my part? I don't know. And no, it doesn't freak me out. Two years later I still miss her, and if that is her in some sort of form or fashion... then I'm cool with that. :)
I want to thank everyone for taking part in the contest. I hope the winners enjoy the story. It's not the scariest thing I've ever written; I was aiming for more spooky. ;)
I will say this... If you really want dark and scary then my next Halloween release should hit the spot, lol. Lust and Ice is one of my dark stories. A very dark, sexual, and truly a lesser of two evils type story. Hehe. Yes, there will be a contest starting for that this week. Then I have the Halloween Blog Hop coming soon.
