Short Story Description:
A grieving couple coping with the unimaginable loss of their child being stillborn discover a disturbing anomaly. They can hear their deceased daughter through a baby monitor.
But is it really their daughter they are listening to?
And if so, who are the other voices coming through on the monitor?
As this couple is about to discover, not all second chances are meant to be taken.
**I must first say anyone who has experienced a miscarriage, still birth, or lost an infant child should not read this short story.**
This short story is true psychological horror as it would be every parent’s worst nightmare. Sam and Joel’s heartache over their loss feels 100% real. Then they start hearing things through the baby monitor they don’t need anymore. This includes a crying baby. Thus begins a descent into despair, confusion, and more.
