In a matter of seconds the sun, moon, and stars disappeared from the sky, replaced by an inky, infinite blackness. Global communications were disrupted, and chaos reigned worldwide as panic set in, and humanity reset to its basest of behaviors and most primal of natural instincts.
Vernon and Michelle Robson think that getting their new home is the best thing that could have ever happened to them; however, they soon learn that there is much more to its old-fashioned charm, much more lurking beneath its floorboards and in its shadows. The house is a gateway, a keep of souls, those within it waiting for their opportunity to once more find vessels to inhabit. Will Vernon sacrifice himself to save his family? Will his son forever remain the key to it all?
This is a short science-fiction horror story from Thomas Weston.
