Trespassers Will Be…

Kerry knew she’d made the right choice to enter the abandoned home the moment she spied the accoutrements hanging from the ceiling: Rolling pins, lanterns, cast iron skillets and pale aprons. The rich Amish heritage was scattered throughout the simple structure. She’d be able to fill an entire gallery with the photos she’d take here.

A year later, the only photo of Kerry’s that hung around town was a self portrait her mother used to make her “missing person” sign. It seems Kerry made a terrible mistake. The home wasn’t abandoned after all and even dead Amish hate technology.

    1. That seems to be the general impression, but who knows? Repressed desires might manifest themselves in all kinds of ways after death. Then again, the Amish are just people and anyone can be grumpy. 🙂
