TBM 0817.04 – DDOP-04: Whispers and Some Kind of Understanding

Whispering Guitar


Not so much a ghost story, as a story with ghosts in it. Written for 2016 HorrorDailies.


But Mama never believed me when I told her that my invisible friends told me these things. She’d just tug on one of my braids and tell me I was lucky to have such a vivid imagination, and maybe I’d be a writer someday.
