Mitzy’s Friends

If you liked reading this post, you are supposed to continue reading the sub-pages on the right. Thanks 🙂

Sera and her daughter, Suzie, moved to the small but adequate house near Sera’s workplace. The house was small compared to the one they’d been living in when David was alive. Sera sighed when the last box was unpacked and looked up to check up on Suzie. The 7 year old was tidying up her toys and arranging her dolls, humming tunelessly.

Surprisingly, the house was sold at a rate much less than the going rate in that area. The garden was slightly neglected but a good landscaper would be able to put that right. There were neighbors around and Sera could hear their kids’ laughter.

Sera sat back and viewed the interiors satisfied with everything. She missed David then and inhaled deeply to ease the familiar pain. She let out her breathe and then sniffed the air delicately. What was that smell?  It must be from the house being on the market for quite long. She decided to open all the windows the next day and air the house properly.

After dinner and a storytelling, Suzie fell asleep. After reading for sometime, Sera also dozed off cuddling her daughter.

Suzie was crying in her sleep. Sera woke up and half-asleep patted her back to sleep. A cold chill was in the room and that smell again.

Next morning was a rush. Breakfast, dropping off Suzie at the creche. The entire day flew by at work, meeting clients, attending meetings. At 5, Sera left for home and picked up Suzie from the creche. When they got home, once the door opened, the smell hit them again! It was stronger than before.

Suzie didn’t seem to be affected by the open-sewage-infested-by-dead-rats smell. Stepping into the house, the temperature dipped – making her pick up a cardigan as soon as possible. And opened all the windows to get rid of that smell. As Sera started dinner, she could hear Suzie moving around, alternating between murmuring and humming a tune. Sera went to talk to her daughter and was about to call her name, but stopped aghast at the sight she saw.
