Followers

A ghost story.  Brothers can be cruel.

Followers (@ Scrawlers)

My brother told me there were many kinds of ghosts.

“The only one you need to worry about are the Followers. You know when you’re standing in a dark room convinced there’s something behind you? Followers.”

His voice trailed off. When it came back it was fainter.

“They’re usually harmless, but if you’re stuck with them for too long you go crazy.”

Fainter still…

“Some people claw all the skin off the back of their neck trying to get rid of them.”

Silence. Then the lights went off and he locked the door behind him.
