No VacancyThe building had been built as a guest house for the larger house up the road that had been forsaken for a retail strip which had wiped out 100 years of history Now sitting in the midst of overgrown gardens it has in the years since I ran through its rooms been witness to teenage angst vagrancy and even some first time whispers of I love you It would soon fall victim to a developers dream Occupied and abandoned it had seen the best and worst of human natureIt seemed much smaller now than when I was eleven It had belonged to my grandfather who had actually owned the whole farm and main farm house up the road Since his death the land and its past had been sold off one parcel at a time I had inherited one fourth of the house at one point sharing ownership with my siblings but it was sold to pay off old debts It has been sitting here for the last twenty years as a testament to our family history between a strip mall and a housing development slowly rotting and sagging on old worn timbersPushing thorough the peeling white wooden gate the old hinges cried out Immediately I was in what was once the garden 2 acres or roses hedges and creeping juniper The expanse was enormous as a child now as an adult with a wife and kids a job I hated and rent that was too high it was a mere forty tangled feet to the front door I struggled through the overgrowth passing a broken bird bath where my grandmothers ashes were buried I suppose she would become part of the new neighborhood As I approached the front door it was evident that the years had not been kind The white plaster walls were pockmarked and scarred someone had proclaimed their love for someone else with a can of spray
