Baby Writing Challenge SUPER//OVERTIME//MODE Story Eighteen: "The Disappearance of Harry Glass"

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we're here at the penultimate story. It's taken me a long time to write this one (almost a month this time) because of all the late night work stuff that's been cropping up. Oh, and having two kids to help bring up too. Raising kids is important because if I do it right, then I can start delegating all the housework to them.

They're lucky we don't have any chimneys that need sweeping.

This story was inspired by the word 'ultrasound', which was suggested by a good friend of mine from university, someone's whose kindness and generosity with hummus on toast knew no bounds. The random genre picker gave me 'occult detective', which was initially a bit of a headscratcher.

After an unrelated chat with my wife about one of her childhood excursions, I had a perfect setting. That's right. This place is real.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "The Disappearance of Harry Glass."
