i survived

Standard

I managed to make it through the night but not without spooky drama.  I left the old historic Rose Theater in old town Port Townsend in search of dinner.  Found a small bistro with the door wide open and freezing inside to match it’s chilly reception.  But they had food.  I got 5 stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto and a potato torta to go.  I walked out in to the foggy chilly night and down the two desolate and dark blocks toward the Palace Hotel.  I saw exactly not one other person on the dimly lit streets.  As I passed one large tree I heard a very loud scampering sound.  Much too late and large for a bird.  Maybe a roof rat or raccoon I thought as I hurried my step to the vacant lobby of the haunted hotel.
Thank God I’d remembered to pack that small bottle of champagne because I needed it as I hunkered down in the expansive King sized bed only to hear the creak.   A slow motion eerie groan coming from the other side of the large solid wood, locked adjoining room door.

    You little devil…. you are going to drag this one out to torment us? I am on the edge of my seat! (is that a little man shadow on the red wall near the stair rail going up?)
