‘Is There a Killer in Mrs Norris’s House?’ is a 1316-word short story. The story is told in the second person, and you are the main character of the story. While on your way to a Halloween party, you spot a person who could be the Jack O’ Lantern Killer in Mrs Norris’s house. Will you save Mrs Norris?
The story was written for Tales from the Moonlit Path’s Halloween Special Edition Challenge. I had originally written the story in the third person, but after reading a story in the second person, I decided to try writing the story in the second person.
I didn’t win the competition, but I was given an honourable mention, and my story was published on the website. This was a brilliant achievement for me because it’s the first published story since I became ill.
