kirsten’s family lived by the ocean. when the announcement came to evacuate due to an approaching storm, they didn’t.
the storm arrived howling like nothing kirsten had heard before. suddenly, there was a loud bang. when her dad opened the door to investigate, he was killed by the surging waters. as kirsten clung to a post, her mom drowned trying to reach her.
for years, kirsten was coming to their house or whatever was left of it. the villagers thought it was haunted, but she knew better. if it was haunted, it was haunted by the memory of happier times.
