“Footsteps in the Foggy Night”

Write a short story about a character who starts hearing unexplained footsteps in the foggy nights.

The protagonist of this story starts to hear eerie footsteps on the foggy nights that seem to trace his/her own path. These could be signs of a stalker, a ghost, or maybe it’s all in the character’s mind. Explore the fear, tension and paranoia that grow inside the character, along with the relief of daytime or fear when the sun sets. The prompt encourages exploring the conflict between reality and delusions, the uncertainty of fear, and the human instinct to believe the unbelievable.
