642 Things to Write: Day 10

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Someone apartment-sitting learns three unsettling things about the inhabitant of the apartment.

On the first day she walks in and immediately learns that the inhabitant is a hoarder of newspapers. However, beyond the stacks of papers, the apartment is immaculate.

On the second morning she learns that there is no showerhead.  It is baths or nothing.  She assumes the inhabitant may skip bathing more than any adult should.

On the third night she stumbles into a stack of newspapers.  They topple and she is left looking at the decayed remains of someone long dead. 

She does not return for the fourth day.
