Something is creeping up the stairs, something is standing outside the door. Something is sobbing, sobbing in the dark; something is sighing across the floor...

This was a creepy short story about two twin girls living in a haunted house. While it was times confusing I think this was an amazing story! The narrator did a brilliant job with it as well!
