Hmmm, that was odd.

I have just spent the afternoon at a lovely old house organising the gorgeous collection of books they have. It’s a holiday home so I was on my own and time was not pressing. I had tea and a rather nice lemon drizzle cake to sustain me.

The clock on the mantle ticked softly as I studied the wonderful old works by Peter Scott and the like. I barely registered the door opening and closing until a moment later a chill breeze swept over me. I looked up to see, well, nothing, nothing at all.

I put it down to the lousy weather we had today and bent back to the books. A few minutes later I looked up to take my tea cup. Across the table from me, appearing to sit in one of the chairs was a patch of greyness, indistinct but identifiably of a human shape. As I watched the greyness shimmered and dissolved. I sat, rooted to my chair, for fully five minutes trying to make sense of the encounter. Now, back at the Dower House, comfortable in my own study, I still can think of no rational answer.

About edwardchunter

Hello, my name is Edward Hunter. If you've read my first book Windigo, then you'll know that I am the Uncle of Archie, who features in much of my writing. We both live on the Strathnuin estate which is just a stone's throw from Loch Ness. Now my brother Magnus (Archie's father) is missing, presumed dead, Archie and I look after the Estate. Archie's further adventures will be published soon - look out for 'The Monster Factory' any time now.
