That Familiar Place

Sanya often wondered what lay beyond the bright blue door in her grandfather's home's backyard.

He never answered her queries.
Sanya decided to investigate. 

When she found a fancy looking key and key-chain, she acted as though it was her genie in a lamp.

The key lead her to a beautiful home that looked very familiar.

Climbing up the steps, she could hear someone working there.
It was her grandfather!

Seeing her, he gave a shout of dismay and betrayal.

“I had planned to gift this home to you on your upcoming birthday. I’ve constructed it based on your painting.”

Do you like when your "surprises" get exposed? How would you feel if someone brings your painting to life? Do share in the comments below.

  1. Dear Anita,

    Painting? What painting?



  2. Spoiled the surprise, but still a wonderful gift.

  3. I also need to know about the painting now! Nice tie in with all the prompts though, you do that well.

  4. The surprise came a little earlier than expected it seems!

    My go at Friday Fictioneers!

  5. I'm disappointed when surprises are exposed, and no, nobody's ever tried to construct something based on a painting of mine.

  6. Her grandfather loves her so much! She's a lucky person. I wouldn't mind finding out early but it's too bad grandpa couldn't have chosen the time to reveal the big secret.

  7. The extra pics turned the story into a "picture book" reading experience. Innovative.

  8. I hate it when someone ruins a surprise. But--I guess I'd have to accept this gift with good grace and hope the grandfather wasn't going to hold it against me :)

  9. You're truly an explorer of surprising ends!

  10. wish the little grand-daughter had not investigated and got the surprise of her life.

    a surprise should be a surprise. no spoilsport.


Your words mean a lot to me.
