Floodgates Broke Wide Open


In response to The Daily Prompt By Hand

What’s the best present you’ve ever received that was handmade by the giver, not store-bought? Tell us what made it so special.

It was the hardest year of my life. I must have been stressed to the gills. But quite frankly, I honestly couldn’t say, because I was just numb.

That year, Thanksgiving Dinner was prepared by zombies. When everything was spread out across the table we all sat to enjoy the bounty of a year gone by.

I have always had an awareness of something beyond the natural senses. For as long as I can remember, I was aware of apparitions, I was aware of sounds others did not hear, and I was aware of things around me.

This caused me to begin a journey. It was a journey to try to understand…
