“Kids, don’t go far and come before the dusk falls.”

Brother and sister found an abandoned cottage near the woods. The broken roof, smashed window panes and missing door appealed to them. It was an ideal place to play hide and seek.

“You hide, I shall seek,” said brother.

“Are you ready?” He shouted.

No girly voice answered.

“Where are you? Don’t play your silly games with me?”

He went inside the cottage, climbed up the attic but sister was nowhere to be found.

“I had told you not to venture too far.” Mother cried.

    Where did she go? Mysterious!

    Mysterious and scary. Maybe she found a portal to another dimension.

    I am sure she will come back – quite where or how is another matter, of course.

    Oh dear. She should have listened to Mother.

    She should have listened….

  9. Dear Anshu,

    This sounds like sister could have come to a tragic end. Hopefully she just wandered off and will be found. Nicely done.
