The Search

Clickety-Clack, Clickety-Clack…where was that sound coming from? Was that mysterious lady coming her way? Hard to tell, for this passageway was like a serpentine. There were so many twists and turns. She was wondering if she would ever find her way back to the serenity of the purple room. There were many rooms along this passageway, that she felt like investigating, but felt a pull to keep on going.

Whoa! What was that? The brightness of the room called to her. She walked in and her eyes were wide with the vibrancy of the room. The walls were covered in orange paint. There was a coal black brass bed with a velvet orange comforter on it. One touch of the comforter and you wanted to snuggle under it, letting the soft and fuzzy texture swallow you up. She resisted the urge to give in; for unlike the purple room it didn’t have the inviting allure to it.

Her stomach started rumbling and she realized how long it had gone since she had eaten. The smell of chocolate wafted through the hallway and her tongue could almost taste the sweetness. She followed the smell to see where it would lead. Happiness filled her when the pleasant smell led her to the purple room. This time there was a heart shaped table in the middle of the room. It had an assortment of cheeses, meats, crackers and fruit  on it. Plus for her sweet tooth, there were heart shaped brownies. Now she knew why she had smelled chocolate.  Everything was so good and she ate til her stomach was content.

As she took her last bite the thought hit her. Who had prepared the food? How did they know she would come back to the purple room for it? The food was fresh, the heat still radiated from the brownies, making them melt in her mouth. Was someone watching her every step? The momentary pleasure of her full stomach soon turned to discontent and nervousness as questions circled in her head. Was the mysterious lady watching?

OUCH! She sliced her finger on something sharp on the lamp, as she went to turn it off. It was bleeding good, she ran out of the room to find the bathroom. The cool  water felt good, as it washed off the blood and soothed her finger. She held a paper towel on it with pressure to stop the bleeding, as she headed back to her room. She was thinking that it would be a good night to go out on the balcony and gaze at the stars. Try to clear the troubled thoughts in her brain.

Entering her room her gaze fell on the end table with the lamp. What she saw made a chill come over her. There were band-aids and a bandage laying there. The truth haunted her!  Someone was watching! But who was it and why? Once again she wondered what kind of house had she walked into.

Thanks again for reading and would love to hear your feedback. I don’t know where this will lead, but definitely have more to add. I think I will wait tho before I post more, make it longer. This is the first time I have written something so long and have been excited about how its turning out. Hope you have enjoyed it !

  1. I have read all 3 parts and am now looking forward to part 4. I like your style – short, informative, emotional sentences. You have created a very clear picture using colors, precise descriptive phrases, etc. Good job. I’ll watch for part 4.


    • Thanks so much for reading and the nice comments! I appreciate it and glad you are looking forward to part 4…it might be a little while. I may post a couple chapters at once next tiem.But don’t worry it will be coming! 🙂


  2. Okay…this is eerie and cool. I must know what’s going on as I have no imagination of my own and find this intriguing. I don’t usually read long posts because there are so many to catch up on, but the sweet smell of chocolate was described so well that I was hooked.


  3. Mmmm… heart shaped brownies… though if I found myself in a spooky house like that, I probably would be too nervous to enjoy them much, just like in the story! Hee hee. Keep on writing, it’s going well!
