Don't miss De Elizabeth's story: A spooky dare ripped two best friends apart. But seven years later...
I feel like I blinked and suddenly it’s almost November. Where did the time go? Halloween is this weekend, and to celebrate, we have an eerie, angsty queer love story starring a pair of estranged best friends and set in a very possibly haunted house. It’s by De Elizabeth, a journalist and author whose work has appeared in Bustle, Teen Vogue, Huff Post, and Netflix among other places. Every line radiates unrequited longing and sexual tension — it’s a real treat.
