 Ring of Keys 
By Chuck Wendig
The house—really, just a cabin—sat on a ridge. The ridge overlooked a ravine,and at the bottom o the ravine ran a muddy creek, a serpent o churning clay-colored water that wound through the dark hills.

Real estate purposes. All that.Honestly, I’m surprised. I heard you wanted to sell this little gem, and I thought tomysel, well that is
