#1 Doorway

Edmonton, Alberta

“There’s a place nobody dares to go anymore and that’s through this door.”

A cooky-looking elderly man — that I’ve never seen before — threw his arm over my shoulder and pointed directly towards the building in front of us. He continued,

“My brother went in there ten years ago and I’ve never seen him since.”

I raised my phone back up and snapped the picture I was about to take. I responded with,

“I think it’s just beautiful.”

In disgust, I guess, he took his arm off of me. He started to walk away and then he looked back, with the blankest stare I’ve ever seen and yelled out,

“That’s where they turn you into a ghost!”
