Note of caution for sensitive listeners: This episode contains descriptions of a fly being harmed.

“I have a story to tell you that you will not believe,” the fly said.

I listened. Because if I believed that a fly could speak, then I was more than ready to hear what she had to say.

And I did believe, after a fashion, when I realized that the tiny voice I’d heard whispering my name was coming from the fly that was perched on the edge of my mantel.


It is no ordinary fly that has landed upon one unsuspecting person’s mantel.  She has a story to tell.

Genre: Horror, Mystery
