Thrill Or Trick - Part 1


"Some things never change around here." Simi poked around trying to fish out the harried souls.
The souls in question seeking solace from the stern elders, often alone or in groups of two and three by the lake.
'Sharing secrets inside the mansion walls was both embarrassing and dangerous' opined the teenagers.
This bunch was not smarter than the ones in the preceding years but used a different system of disguises. Hard to know if the portly, middle aged man she detected was indeed Shammi Uncle.
'Offending a senior member of the household meant hanging off a cliff like... Ria...
what the hell was that?'

Oh my, what could be lurking behind the mansion walls, and worse yet, what is that hanging off the ledge! Oh no we must toil all week long in wonder! You have me hanging in sheer delight!

This sounds like the beginning of an intriguing story! Is it some kind of sect living in this mansion?

Sound almost spooky.

Can't wait to find out!

Lovely writing and I am so drawn to the pictures on this blog!

Hi Rek, first time visitor. Great to meet you. I don't trust what's on the other end of that hand. Maybe there's nothing. Just a hand. Kinda like Thing from Addams Family, only scary.

Agnes said...

Your site is such a visual wonderland and I love your words.

Jenny said...

Oooh, complicated and suspense filled. I love your illustration...it perfectly captured the feeling of this writing. Can't wait to see where you took this.

Glad you made it this far...would love to hear your take on the words scribbled. A comment every now and then keeps the blues away. :D

Since, crazy Mr. Blogspot won't let me reply to the comments here (is upset with the water ladies ever since they refused to verify visitors)...will do the next best thing, drop in to your blog to say my Vanakkam/Namaste/Salaam/Hello.
