An unapologetically dark tale told from the 2nd person point of view. Are you ready? Don't worry, you are.

    Episode 1 - Daniel

    Episode 1 - Daniel

    Your attention is drawn to the faint sound of singing. As you slowly gain consciousness it becomes louder and louder. It sounds like church hymns. That doesn’t make any sense. You haven’t been to church since you were a kid.  
    You open your eyes and stare straight ahead. Your vision is out of focus, but you can make out the colors of white and brown. You slowly start to realize that you are on your back and are staring upwards, at a vaulted ceiling. You recognize this ceiling. You are in your childhood church. You try to sit up but your muscles will not engage.
    You are groggy and are struggling to remember how you got here. In fact, you realize that you can not remember anything that happened before this moment. You don't even know your name.

    Episode 3 - The Killer

    Episode 3 - The Killer

    It’s Sunday night at 11 pm. It’s 4 weeks before the murder.  You are staring at your phone. She is late again. She’s not your girlfriend, at least not in public. You pace around the small room. There’s not much here, except for a large bed, which sits in the middle of the room. It’s layered with crisp white sheets. The room is a little cramped, but it smells fresh and new, like a large open field. You think about your own home, it feels constrained, musty, diluted. 
    You live in one of those small towns where everyone knows everyone, you have to be discrete.

    Episode 4 - Kim

    His kitchen is large and opens out into the living room. The bright open space stands in stark contrast to the stove, which is covered in layers of grease. You begin scrubbing as hard as you can. You think about how the stove got to be this way. It must have taken months of neglect at least, how could someone just ignore this kind of build-up? Maybe he doesn’t notice the mess that he’s making, you think. Or maybe he notices but he doesn’t care. After all, there will always be someone like you to clean it up.

    Episode 5 - Alice

    It’s Sunday morning and you are arriving at the diner for your shift. It’s a hot summer day and the church crowd is thinner than normal. A few of the other servers are sent home early, but you volunteer to stay. 
    This is when it happens. You only have one hour left on the clock, when he sits in your section, the diner is half empty by now, but his presence seems to take up the entire space. He’s relaxed but extremely observant. There’s an alertness to his posture and eyes that you have never seen before. 
    You can tell that he is not local, you wonder where he came from.

    You feel scared, you know that your life is about to change. You take a deep breath and tell Daniel everything.

A gripping murder mystery with a ghost story weaving the past with the present.

Really enjoyed this story. It kept me guessing and was very interesting. Father, Maurice and Naomi all turned out to be fascinating people in their own way. Also enjoyed how you wove the ghost story and the past murder/history together for a really gripping investigation and tale.
I also loved that you gave Naomi the recognition she so long deserved. After hearing all that and knowing she was humble but well known for her work makes me wonder if Father just felt inadequate as a man being married to her. He seemed to really love his children but he lived a very unconventional life for a man for the time, especially in a house of probably somewhat higher social stature. He’d be living in her shadow everyday.
Perhaps these fantastic tales he fabricated were originally just meant to entertain his children. Then they just stuck and he just never set the record strait because he started to love that his children admired him. He was just trying to be someone important too in his children’s eyes. To be equal to his wife.

Fantastic

I don’t normally like fictional stories but this one was gripping. The cadence and tone of the narrative sucked me right in.
