The Monster In The Cupboard

‘Quick, just stuff it all in the cupboard!’ Jess ordered.

Harry had begun the mammoth and ritualistic task of cleaning just moments before the guests were due. The living room was a state, packed full of possessions and clutter that had long failed to find a permanent home. Harry spotted Amelie running up the garden path and swooped on his precious antique clock. Just in time.

What’s in there?’ Amelie threatened to reveal the mess.

Harry darted over, grabbed the furry hood of Jess’s coat and poked it through the tiny gap.

‘A monster!’

Amelie screamed and ran. Disaster averted.

Hope you enjoyed this story

  1. Dear Bettina,

    Sounds like the old game of sibling rivalry. Cute story.



  2. I wonder how long it will be before Amelie is brave enough to return to the cupboard!? Nicely done.

  3. Sounds like Harry needs to pull himself together and tidy up properly!

  4. He he - great little story - I enjoyed it.
