.....................................................................................................................

Here is the full ghost story written by C.M. Galdre:

The castle came with the mists each autumn, nestled in the river-bend where the ground was bare and black. In the day it loomed within the hills, its gaunt face hiding in shadow and fog.

In the night though, when the moon rise high every window flickered to life with light and sweet music lilted from somewhere deep within. The pumpkins came shortly after, growing 
over-large on the castle grounds, bursting from the damp earth like cyclamen. They gleamed like pale waxen moons in the dark. 

No one knew from whence the castle came, who lived there, or even its name. The castle had always been, coming with the first turning leaves and leaving before the last leaf fell. The villagers knew better than to pay it mind but travelers often wandered in, drawn by the promise of
mirth its music carried. 

Some would be found in the pumpkin fields, jubilant and smelling of drink. They would speak of the great castle in the mists and hummed its cloying music as they carried on their way. 

Most, however, never left those candle lit halls once entered. At least until the castle left, and their bones were found amongst the blackened stones the castle left in its wake.

Thanks everyone for your interest in my annual halloween print!
