Getting Heavier

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.

There’s a small car park on the way to the convenience store. One of those places you see around the place you have to pay for. As I was passing by there the other day, the hood of my parka suddenly felt heavy. Once I was past it, the feeling was gone.

‘What the…?’ I thought and turned back. It grew heavy again. No matter how many times I tried it after, every time I passed the parking lot, I felt a strange heaviness.

It was enough that most people probably wouldn’t notice it, but once you did, there was no way not to notice it again. I felt like I knew something no-one else did, and it was kinda fun. I started wearing my parka even more after that.

When it gets heavier, I wonder if perhaps something has been put in there. It’s been on my mind a lot recently. There have been times where I even stopped and turned the hood inside out to check. But recently I’ve stopped doing that entirely. It feels like if I go too far, whatever strange event is occurring will stop.

I rode past there again today.

My hood got heavier again.
