For Our Daily Challenge: Come On In
My wife still has some of her childhood dolls, which we have displayed in the basement. These dolls are rather large and lifelike, and they sometimes creep me out a bit. This evening, when I was working in my basement office, I noticed that one of the dolls was missing, and was not in its usual spot. Maybe my wife moved it, I thought…
At about that time, I heard noises upstairs and outside that seemed to be coming from the garden storage shed in back of our house. It was almost dark, but I went out to investigate.
When I got to the shed, I was surprised to see the door unlocked and standing slightly ajar. I know that I closed it and locked it the last time that I used it. As I approached the shed, I thought that I saw something inside, but I couldn’t make out what it was.
I pulled the door open cautiously… But when I did, there was nothing out-of-the-ordinary inside. Strange, I thought, but I locked up the shed and headed back to my office. Stranger still, when I got back to my office, I noticed that the previously missing doll was back in its normal place…
Oh well, I guess my imagination is playing tricks on me. ;-)
