We live on a heavily wooded street. Brian and I have noticed something about a property just a few lots west of ours. Most of the thick stands of trees have a good understory and when you pass by them and look up, you can see dappled light even though it's still relatively dark from shade.
But this one stand of trees is different. There is no understory. And it's spooky dark. Unnaturally dark. Like there's a heavy shadow over the shade. I swear it's even colder right there. Sooooo dark. Always. Even on the brightest of days.
I'm sure it can be explained by a denser leaf cover, but I don't know. I wonder if the area has a history. If I were watching a scary movie, this is the patch of woods that would be haunted or occupied by the mask wearing psycho.
