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. Actually hadn’t thought about it that way but I guess anything can be expected in such a place

  7. Call me chicken, but if I come across a place with no door I am not crawling in through a window… too spooky!

    1. Well it was going to rain. Maybe a doorless house seemed better than soaking wet

  9. 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.

  11. Interesting take. I think the hut is a portal to the mansion.

  12. 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!

  13. This wonderful tale had me thinking of possibilities… a time machine perhaps, or maybe a portal to another realm? It also reminds me of how deceiving outward appearances can be.

  15. “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 😀

  16. I wanted to yell, “Don’t go in the window!” but–well, they probably would have done it anyway 🙂
