Fiction: The Porcelain Doll

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Monica wanted a porcelain doll as her birthday present, the parents gladly bought one and reminded her to follow the instruction, “How to take care of her prized possession.”

She dressed her doll the best way she could, she was happy to see how gorgeous her doll looked, she named it, “Nefertiti”, the Egyptian queen.

Her friend Patricia heard about Monica’s doll and came to see if it was as pretty as her classmates told her, to her surprise she didn’t think she’d seen a doll prettier than Monica’s, her friend’s reluctance to let her touch the doll infuriated Patricia, she made plans to steal it and bury it in the ground.

After her friend left that day,Monica remembered seeing something in Patricia’s looks which made her concerned, was her friend thinking of something evil was all she thought about the whole day, she fell asleep early evening, suddenly she woke up in the middle of the night and found her doll missing, she looked out the window and found Patricia digging a hole in the ground, slowly the doll was laid in the hole and the ground was covered up,Monica let out a horrific scream, she started crying and yelling, “How could you do this to me?”

The noise awakened the parents,mom and dad came running to see what was going on, they found Monica crying and yelling, “She buried my doll,” the parents rummaged the room frantically, they found it neatly tucked away in the doll- house!
