Short Horror Story: Some Things Never Change

One of the creepiest tropes that give me chills are always "creepiest things my kids said."

Short Horror Story: Nana’s Piano

Due to a request by a brilliant pianist, here is a short but sweet/creepy story involving a piano.

I still am learning about everything …
