Ghost Town

Story Starter

Erin could not pinpoint what it was, but she knew something was off about the new town.

It had taken her mother months to decide to move there since the death of her maternal grandmother. It was the elderly woman’s dying wish that they’d come and take over her old cottage situated at the heart of the woods. 

Moving to the new area was a hassle, not because Erin and her mother had a lot of property or no money but because the town had so many stringent rules. The inhabitants were no more than a thousand; there was a ban on wearing clothes with sequins, and shops were instructed to close before nine at night.
