No Ordinary Morning

It was just another typical morning the hectic hustle and bustle of wrangling the kids out the door for school.  As we walked I remembered I forgot that I locked the front door. I thought to myself “It was nothing to worry about besides I’m only minutes away.”

I dropped the kids off with a quick dodge and dash home before anyone could grab me to volunteer for the morning assembly. I needed some quiet time to reboot and make plans for the busy week. I know it’s selfish but I relish my quiet time alone.

As I entered the house ready to enjoy my first cup of coffee, I cut a whiff of a smell, and looked at my dog whimpering at the back door wanting to go out. I let her out and sighed wondering,  “What  had she done now?”

I noticed the basement door wide open  I knew the dog has done something but rather than inspecting it, discovering her mess, the best would be to leave it for the time-being. All I wanted was my first cup of coffee – was that really too much to ask?

It was at  that moment I turned the coffee machine, I heard another noise, it was a strange clicking sound, I walked back to the basement door to inspect,  I opened it,  the room went silent, I shrugged it off, and I went back to the kitchen.

It was then I felt a cold breeze brush past my shoulders and I knew this would be no ordinary morning.

Can you help me finish the story? What will happen next?

  1. No!!! I want to hear the story – the whole story – right now! Nobody else can write exactly like you! Waaaah, [I’m holding my breath]….. (can you see my hissy fit?)

  2. I have been pondering this *all day long*. Seriously, since I saw it in my feed reader this morning!

    I think that someone is in the house. Not necessarily for nefarious reasons, perhaps your sister or a good friend? Perhaps not someone, but something?? My cat used to bring in chipmunks, alive, and they’d skitter around until I could get them out, often hours later.

    In any event, the unexpected visitor scares the bejeezus out of you.

    Now, tell us the rest of the story!! 😉

  3. As I poured myself the much needed cup of coffee, all the lights in the house went off. I headed to circuit breaker, muttering to myself. I figured somehow I blew a fuse. Oh, how I wish I was that lucky, as I had no idea, I wasn’t alone after all….
