Light

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.

Recently I’ve noticed something.

Whenever I get home from work, the light in the neighbour’s room on the second floor turns on.

It’s absolutely not my imagination. Whether I’m home at my usual time, late from overtime, whether I’m back from drinking or shopping, it seems to know and turns on. As soon as I put my key in the door, that light turns on without fail.

It’s not like there’s any real harm in it. It’s just a light through the window. Nothing ever happens. That’s it, that’s all there is to the story.

Yeah, that’s probably all there is to the story.
