October’s story is “Stone Tower.”
October is a month for scary stories. This one first appeared in Gothic! Ten Original Dark Tales. (A truly excellent collection, if you’re looking for scaring onself with.) It’s a little older than some of the other stories I’ve been posting; I’d probably give it a PG-13 rating.
When I started this one, I had only a single image: that of a girl trapped in a tower. Neither she nor I knew why she was there–I had to write the rest of the story to find out.
