Friday Freebies (7/29): A Long Journey off a Short Pier (6 Short Stories)

LJ Cover


EXP: Joyride

Done with the beer race, Mike unlocked the door to the house; and the two boys scampered inside.

Once inside, they began to scan the place for the keys to the garage and the keys to the car. It took them a moment of scrounging before one of them came up with the silver objects.

“Got ‘em,” Mike replied, as he fished the keys out of a drawer. As luck would have it, the garage and car key were on the same key ring, a key ring that had a picture of the devil on it smiling an evil grin.

“Well, let’s go then. The longer we are in here the better the chance of getting caught.” Vin grabbed the key ring Mike was holding and made his way outside.

Mike locked up the house, and followed after Vin.

When the door to the house closed, a gust of wind, made by the door, blew a piece of paper off the desk. Underneath this piece of paper was a black leather bound book with a pentagram on the cover. This five pointed pentagram was bright red, like it had been drawn in blood. This symbol began to glow in the darkness.
