The deadly path
In this short story, five-year-old Cindy watches from her bedroom window as an old man passes by in the middle of the night. Strangely drawn to the man, Cindy sneaks out of her house and finds him by following a golden path that only they can see. She watches as he buries strange coins by the corners of several houses.
What Cindy does not know, is that people start dying in those houses. Cindy's life changes when her best friend dies in a fire, and she finds one of the coins buried under the ashes.
The view of a book addict:
I loved this short story, it was really creepy, the ending send shivers down my spine. I really enjoyed the writing style of this story, it descriped the mood of the story perfectly. You just fall right into it with the first sentence.
The story really took you on a journey with the little girl, it felt like I was the little girl in the story.
The verdict of a book addict:
A very creepy story that will keep me up a couple of nights I’m affraid.
