Hide and Seek

“I thought you got rid of it.” Jana hissed into Kaylie’s ear.

“I did.”

“Obviously not. It’s right there.”

Kaylie peered through the cracked open closet door.

The little man in a scarlet tunic and green hood faced away from them. He paced a few steps then began to glow.

“Maybe it’s over.” 

“Come out, come out …” His wispy voice shook the walls. Boxes rained from the shelves forcing the girls through the door in a pile of discarded things. “There you are.”

The little man with unblinking eyes stood over them.

“Ready or not, here I come.”

  1. Gnomes could add to the holiday havoc easily! Maybe, as mischief controllers, they’d keep those elves upon the shelves in line. Thanks for sharing the Pink Floyd, too!

Why not tell me what you think ...
