It was a chilly night at the beach house in the middle of summer, and the family living there were playing a game of cards. Just as one of them drew the Queen of Hearts card, a light shone though the front window. The family seemed desperate to go out and see what was happening. Through the window they could see a shadow of an orb-shaped ball that was lying on the sand. They had been using the ball to play a game that afternoon. Then came the collision of the waves. Then came a flame from the torch in the lighthouse in the distance. It was starting to look spooky.

knock was then heard on the door. Everyone was shaking. The man opened it to find the landlord with his tool bag, who said "Pardon me, Mr. Smith," but we have an inspection of the beach house this week. We must make sure everything fits and it up to code. Just letting you know."

"Thanks," Mr. Smith said. He want back to playing cards with his family.


  1. All's well that ends well....great use of the words. :)

  2. It was indeed starting to look spooky, and I am not surprised the family was shaking.
    Thank you for joining us.

  3. Nice. You bring in some great tension.
