I don’t like it when they open the windows. Memories blow out. And memories are all this place has.
We lived here, slept here, played here. Those moments have faded with the centuries, but they remain. And as long as they remain, so do we.

The parking lot was empty. It was full of cars just a minute ago. Andrew reached into his pocket. He pulled out a small black object. “Blackwing to base,” he said into the mouthpiece. “I’ve found the interdimensional portal.”

There was always two of us. Two of us to share, two of us to compare, two of us to pick favourites with.
Until I pushed Addie down the stairs.
Then there was only one of us.

Getting lost in the marsh wasn’t great for our friendship. There was a lot of finger pointing. We were about to bite each other’s heads off when the swamp monster appeared. It took one look at us and dived right back under water.

Please stay on the trail. There are things in those woods you don’t want to meet.
There was a young girl who wandered from the trail. All we found was her little red riding hood.
So please stay on the trail. The sign’s not there for the good of our health, but yours.

When I knocked on the door of Gregan’s Castle I never expected to end up living here. I didn’t believe the rumours about the strange owner either. It’s OK though – I’m never hungry, and I’ve always liked bats. When it comes down to it, being a vampire isn’t all that bad.

The portal wasn’t what we thought. We thought to see the marvels of the future, but all we see is destruction and death. Let this log serve as a warning – curiosity killed more than the cat.

As some of you may know, I’m a bit shy when it comes to social media. However, I’ve decided to take a walk on the wild side and start a Twitter profile.
I have to admit, I don’t really get Twitter. I warmed to the concept of Instagram almost immediately, but Twitter still has me a bit confused. But I’m going to give it a go and hopefully it will grow on me 🙂
So if you’re on Twitter, feel free to drop by and say hello. My handle is @isabel_caves.
