The Door

I wondered what was behind the door? I was scared to know, scared to see what was behind it. I waited and waited and I finally decided to see what was behind it. I slowly turned the door handle and stepped into… a wonderful garden. An old swing hung from a tree, swinging slowly, maybe someone was in the garden ready to jump out at me and scare me to death. I tried to step back out of the door back into my house but I just fell into a bush. I cried and cried not knowing what to do.

  1. Hello Mya,

    Your story reminded me a little of the classic story, “The Secret Garden”. It was one I enjoyed but, I see, you have placed your own original ideas in the creation of your story. I was left wondering what might happen had the story continued. Well done.

    Your ability to set the scene and build your storyline demonstrates your growing skills as a writer. I hope you can continue to share your ideas.
