My plant-based creature-feature horror story “The Houses Lie Empty On Mulberry Street” is now available at Theme of Absence! You can read it here.
When Joannie rode her bike to school in the fall, Mulberry Street always sat empty as she passed. No cars, no adults, no other kids on bikes. The shades on the windows were always drawn. In the winter, Joannie rode the bus to get to elementary school. The bus never stopped on Mulberry Street.
