Crawlspace - Evans Light

Tom's wife has been after him to spread lime in the crawlspace under the house to protect it from moisture.  With her going out of town for a week, he agrees to do it and then he plans to see his new girlfriend.  While under the house, the only door that he can use to get out slams shut and refuses to open again, leaving him facing being stuck under there for a week.

This was a great creepy little story!  While I found Tom to be a sleaze for his actions, I definitely felt sorry for him while he was trapped under there.  Evans set the mood perfectly, allowing me to share in the claustrophobia that Tom was experiencing.  The ending is left open to the reader's interpretation which I felt was perfect for this story.  Recommended!
