The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

04_MAY_LOHThe Housekeeper
by Asena Lourenco

My vision is an ombré of dark browns as I dunk each cloth into a bucket of bubbles. The drilling of rainfall on roof tiles is a crescendo amongst the questioning silence. Fighting a pointless battle, the sun resigns, and all that can be seen is a faint whimper of light flirting with the one, lonely windowpane in an effort to enter. As if like clockwork, the pang of unpleasant deja-vu hits me as I glance at the growing pile of egg-white sheets stacked upon the dusty floor. A ringing scream comes from the upstairs floor, and before my brain has a minute to comprehend, I’m stood in front of a child brandishing a small dagger standing over a pool of warm blood.
