100 Days, 100 Micros Day 6

Micro 006/100
"The New House" - 100 words

Taking a break from unpacking, Sara was feeding the baby when the front door opened, the twins barreling into the house.

“How was the first day in the new school?” she asked.

“The kids told us that our house was haunted!” Sally exclaimed.

“Yeah,” Tommy agreed. “They said that ghosts possess people here and make them do bad things. That’s not true, is it?”

Sara smiled. “Of course not. Don’t let those kids get to you. Those are all just stories.”

The baby’s eyes suddenly glowed red. “I wouldn’t be so sure about that,” she said in a menacing baritone.

I wonder, if there any such thing as a menacing falsetto? ; )

I got a kick out of Jack-Jack in The Incredibles.

Ha! The perfect story for me--I've been watching Ghost Hunters all evening!

I remember reading The Amityville Horror, and it nearly drove me insane with fear. There's a house here that looks like that one. I haven't thrown bricks through its window yet, but sometimes I'm tempted.
