Rainy-Nonrainy-Ron Nainy

The weather is acting silly.
I am bored with office work.
I am thinking of starting another blog.
I need to write more.
I am watching too many movies.

A box full of surprises

Nina always knew her sister was up to something fishy. She had pulled her out of dusty cupboards, the attic, and once out of the big flour sack, as white as a fresh snowflake. Nina's sister needed to mend her ways or she was getting it from her.

The lights went out that night.

As Nina hobbled around on her knees in the darkness, hoping to find a match, she could hear her sister groping around furiously as well.

'Stop the racket sister!'
"I lost something!"
'Cant you wait for the light to come back on?'
"No! I kept something in a matchbox, and now I cant find it; please don't open it if you do!"
'I wont, I promise! I just hope its not one of your crawlies!'

Nina's hand finally closed around what felt like a matchbox. She shook it. Thud. Thud. A little scratching.

'I think I found it.'

The people from the asylum came and took Nina's sister away in the morning.

No one heard the the repeated soft thumps coming from an unnoticed matchbox.

Thud. Thud. Thud.

I LOVE your writing!
I haven't read Cold Feet yet, but if your blog is anything to go by, I'm sure I'll love it just as much. Will read it the first chance I get. Hopefully I'll write as well as you do someday :D
