Wandering as I usually do, I came across this photo, and I fell in love with it.
Besides the obvious Poe reference, it calls for a story.
What kind of story would YOU write?
I’ll go first:
It’s a story about a little girl with dark brown hair and green eyes hidden by wire rimmed glasses. She is only nine — feeling much older, of course, when she has to keep an eye on her little brother.
But that’s besides the point.
It’s once upon a midnight dreary because it’s Christmas Eve — heck, past Christmas Eve — and, sneaking downstairs sometime after midnight, the little girl discovered that Santa had not come yet! How dreary!
