This was my home. Never really liked it.
It was a splendid house, filled with gorgeous people surrounded by beautiful things…With shadows lurking in dark corners.
Unwanted hands grabbing whatever they could get, sinister whispers wrapping around innocent souls, heads turning to the other side, pretending not to see what should never be unseen.
It seemed I never really left, towing all that baggage half across the world, with ghosts flying out of my suitcases. In the end, it was not the inheritance that dragged me back, but those persistent ghosts.
This was my home. I set it on fire.
