A faint Light in the Distance by vampirekingdom A faint Light in the Distance by vampirekingdom
Retrato de vampiros - Portrait of vampires

Edit:
Thanks to :iconmorowyn:for writing this story inspired by my work

"Not too far from my house, there is a spook-light, the Old Ritchey spook-light. Spook-lights are unexplained lights that can be seen bouncing in the fields/on the roads and are sometimes associated with other paranormal events. In this case, this one is associated with the figure of a ghostly woman. You can never see her face; she never gets close. She is described as wearing a long dress and having long, flowing hair.

The legend is that the woman had lived in the fields that she haunts during the civil war. Her husband enlisted in the draft - the Confederate army - so she waited for him to return. Her husband was pronounced MIA, so she took her lantern and began to search the hills. It is said that the figure that now haunts the hills is that woman, and the spook light is her lantern, and whenever the spook-light rests on the hood/trunk of your car, she is searching her vehicle for her missing husband."

I forgot to mention that whenever my mother, sister and I went to see it for Halloween, we saw the figure, but not the light itself. My mother backed her car up quickly to catch it but it disappeared.

This reminds me of the local folklore.

Not too far from my house, there is a spook-light, the Old Ritchey spook-light. Spook-lights are unexplained lights that can be seen bouncing in the fields/on the roads and are sometimes associated with other paranormal events. In this case, this one is associated with the figure of a ghostly woman. You can never see her face; she never gets close. She is described as wearing a long dress and having long, flowing hair.

The legend is that the woman had lived in the fields that she haunts during the civil war. Her husband enlisted in the draft - the Confederate army - so she waited for him to return. Her husband was pronounced MIA, so she took her lantern and began to search the hills. It is said that the figure that now haunts the hills is that woman, and the spook light is her lantern, and whenever the spook-light rests on the hood/trunk of your car, she is searching her vehicle for her missing husband.

Sorry for the novel. This just reminded me of that.

Go right on ahead. I love travelling to new places and learning the folklore, and then learning the lore of my own hometown. It's pretty neat!

I was actually going to ask if I could use some of your work for a story I'm writing. I'd credit you, of course. I've actually been working on an "autobiography" of a vampire-like creature and a lot of your work reminded me of it. I haven't worked on it in about a year, and your work made me want to start in on it again. I may just publish it online, or I may even publish it the old fashioned way. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.

But, if I publish it online, would I be able to use some of your work (and credit you)?
