Photo Challenge #159

What a challenge this week! Thanks Nekneeraj.

Gloria was an only child who found it extremely difficult to make friends either in or out of school.
Her parents were worried, but the experts said she would soon blossom in her own way and find her place in society.

At the age of 10, her father took her to the movies where she became more animated than he had ever known her. Making discreet enquiries, he came up with a plan that would not only bring his daughter out of her shell, but would ease her loneliness and isolation.
For months, he took photographs as she played, studied and slept, and presented a substantial file as requested to the craftsman he had engaged for the task.

A few weeks later, there was a knock on the door and a little girl stood on the threshold with her back to it.
Gloria answered, and screamed when the girl turned around, fainting dead away.
The intended marionette playmate was a reincarnation of the Horror Doll Chucky, not the cute string puppet along the lines of Pinocchio as had been commissioned.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
