LOST By P.S. Joshi
I wound through the Sierra Madres, alone and lost. Turning the bend, I spotted a large house with no visible lights on inside. It was perched on the slope.
Desperation clawed at my insides. It was dusk, a bad time to lose my way.
Parked, I grabbed my flashlight, crunched up the gravel walk, and climbed the porch steps. Banging on the door, I waited.
The inside latch unfastened, and the door creaked open a crack. A hand with putrid, rotting flesh slid into view. Trembling all over, I stumbled to the car and somehow drove to a nearby town.
