The Little House

Once there was a scientist who decided to shift to the nearby deserted valley; After that, no one ever heard from him again.

5 Years Later…

“Look!” exclaimed the young explorer pointing to a hut. “But it’s in ruins” replied her companion.

“Well, it’s good enough for shelter, I don’t want to wake up when the storm’s overhead.”

Since they couldn’t find the door, they climbed through a window into what was supposed to be a kitchen. But, instead of peeling walls and dented furniture, they were astounded to see modern innovative machines. They walked towards the other rooms to explore.

It’s been a year since anyone’s heard from them.

Today it’s K for Kitchen.

  1. Love this mystery. I wonder if it will be another five years before someone else discovers this place. It is kind of funny that just yesterday I listened to a podcast about disappearing people in a desert.


  2. I suppose if the explorers’ first impression was that the place was much bigger inside than out, there’s really no limit to how big it might be. It would be rather careless of explorers to get lost, so perhaps they’ve come to a sticky end!


  3. “Since they couldn’t find the door, they climbed through a window…” Excellent!
    I’m with zoe. If there’s no door, no way I’m going to climb through a window lol Heads up people 😀
    Captivating 6, nicely done.
