Territory

Author: Ukari

To say here is far, and to call yonder nearby. Stories on the edge of the every day, strange tales you may or may not be moved by. Strange, curious, fantastic stories told by me, you, him and her. There are many stories but they’re all concluded within a single page, each story around 200 to 1200 characters in length, a short story collection you can easily read. Please enjoy them. Updated every Saturday at 6pm.

A sign above my locker at work said “Don’t place anything here!” It wasn’t like there was a breaker or switchboard there, nor a lamp to alert to temperature abnormalities. I asked my colleague about it, and he replied, “Because hands appear there.”

Apparently, an arm would appear, from the elbow to the hand, above the locker and knock off anything within reach.

“It’s like it’s claiming its territory,” he said with a smile.
