Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about a building that no one ever buys, begins after photo.
Genre: Urban Fantasy.
Jacob climbed the stairs with the elderly realtor, Mr. Toussaint. Jacob said, “It’s bit beat up. Still, I’m surprised it’s gone unsold for so long.”
Toussaint frowned disappointedly. “Most of the time, buyers just disappear while I’m showing it.”
Jacob opened a random door. Inside, he saw a sunrise over beautiful rolling hills. He shut it, and blinked. He opened a different door and saw amazing tropical islands. Another door revealed a view from a space station.
Shaking a little, he said, “Ever look in these doors?”
Toussaint shook his head. “Why bother? Nobody wants the place.”
Jacob grinned. “I’ll buy it.”
