The bell jingled for the third time. Elisabeth sat up in bed.
It was a little girl’s voice.
She fumbled in the darkness to check her phone. 3am …
The hallway was pitch black and felt longer and colder…
The bell jingled again.
There in the darkness at the end of the hall. Was a little girl …
She tried to breathe…she didn’t have children… and she didn’t babysit…
The girl just stood there
That’s when elisabeth saw the dark figure behind the girl. It’s big eyes
And smiling face.
The clown holding a bell and a knife
“Lou Lou” It said.
The girl laughed
Elisabeth grabbed the wall looking behind her.
The little girl laughed again.
And the bell rang one last time.
