I’ll never forget that Halloween. ‘Trick or treat’ we shouted the way kids do. The old lady hissed and shook her stick. We ran!
‘Never go near the grey house again’, Mum said. ‘She’s a witch’.
I work for a company emptying disused properties now. When I heard we were clearing the grey house I was intrigued. She’d died a while back and nobody had claimed it. Did she have kids? Grandkids? Perhaps I’d find out.
Inside, everywhere was neat and tidy. A bit of dust but nothing more. There was a photograph on the sideboard.
A photograph of Mum and me.
