Hide in the shed
Laura opens the door and looks into the shed, a lump forms in her throat. It was like her cat had been eaten in the dark. Where could he be? She called for her cat, but he didn’t come. Laura knew she couldn’t go into the shed, it was her mother’s rule.
She enters the shed and uses her cell phone as a light source. She tenses when she notices a mysterious box in the corner. Her body told her to run away. It was irrational, she knew that. She no longer believed in monsters. As she walked to the crate, every ounce of her being screamed for her to stop.
A perfect life
Laura Robinson felt that she had led a seemingly perfect life. She was fortunate to have great parents, a beautiful house, and great friends. And she was just about to study at her new university.
Laura loved life now. Nothing would have affected this chapter in her life and she was ready for what was next. But Laura didn’t know what was waiting for her.
One day Laura woke up and went downstairs to breakfast. As she was about to enter the kitchen, she heard her parents speak softly. What could Ronnie and Adam have said?
She slowly looked around the corner and began to listen. The parents looked nervous, like they had something to hide and didn’t want it to come out. What was wrong? What Laura didn’t know was that her life was about to change.
What did they have to hide?
“We can’t tell her,” Laura’s mother whispered softly. “She will be devastated.” Laura felt fear seep into her as she continued to listen. What was the secret? And why should it be devastated?
Laura had to know. And she knew her parents wouldn’t tell her. Laura had to find out for herself what it was. The discovery she was about to make would cast her into doubt, for all she knew.
Something was wrong
The secrets actually made sense in her head. For as long as Laura could remember, it always seemed like both parents had a secret that they shouldn’t find out.
After hearing her speak, only her suspicions about her were confirmed. They were both hiding a secret that their daughter should never know. The most important thing for Laura was what they were hiding.
She needed the truth
Laura couldn’t just watch and not bring it up. Families should tell each other everything and never keep secrets. Armed with the evidence to back up her suspicions, Laura had to find out what was keeping them away from her.
She also had a say, she was part of this family and wanted to know which secret was too important to tell her. Laura didn’t know that she’d better keep it a secret in retrospect.
Clear out your wardrobe
In the afternoon Laura cleaned up her old wardrobe. After 4 hours of sorting, she came through hundreds of items. Her goal was to give the clothes to a charity shop. In the meantime, she would just keep them outside in the shed.
Laura was on her way to the shed, carrying the heavy bags that were filled with unwanted old clothes, when she suddenly heard her mother roar, “Don’t go in!”
Don’t go in
Laura’s mother stormed out of the house. Laura asked her why she shouldn’t go into the shed. Her mother wasn’t expecting back chat and looked surprised. After a moment of thought, she just said, “Please don’t.” She looked nervous and tried to figure out why.
She then said, “There are rats … and you don’t want to let them out, do you?” Then she took Laura’s clothes bag and stormed back into the house with them. Laura was shocked, her mother never behaved like that. What could she hide?
What was in the shed?
“We can just put these in my closet,” Laura’s mother called to her. Laura hesitated, but could see her mother’s stress and reluctantly agreed. When she started following her mother back into the house, she couldn’t shake the question in her head – what was in that shed?
Just as she reached the door to the house, Laura turned back to the garden to take another look at the shed at the other end. She had a bad feeling about this shed.
Get to the bottom
After a few days, Laura’s parents left home to go to town. Laura was in the house making herself a smoothie when the thought of the shed crossed her mind. She couldn’t help but look at it from the window.
What was in there Why couldn’t she see it? Laura wanted the truth. Even if that meant defying her parents’ wishes and taking the plunge into it.
Let your cat out
Follow the cat
Laura followed Nibbles as he walked through the garden, then came across the shed. The cat turned to Laura and gave a meow as he scratched the front door of the shed. The cat wanted to go in, but why?
It was just a shed. It had garden tools and rubbish. Laura had no idea what was coming.
In the shed
She opens the door to the shed and Nibbles disappears into the darkness. Laura then tries to find a light switch, but to her dismay it doesn’t work.
She can feel her heartbeat in her throat and panic brews like tea in a pot. She had to be quick and find out what her parents were keeping from her. But time was running out.
She takes out her cell phone and charges the flashlight app. She carefully searches the room with her eyes and her flashlight, trying to find something that looks strange or suspicious.
A few seconds later Laura saw something. And it was something that would turn their world upside down.
Somebody is home
Just as Laura was about to gasp, she heard a car pull up, followed by the sound of a car door slamming. Had her parents come back yet? Laura checked her cell phone; You’d only been out for 20 minutes, haven’t you?
In any case, Lara stood frozen in their tracks and tried to listen. If it were her parents, she would be in big trouble. But time was running out.
That was close
A few moments later, Laura noticed that the sound was coming from her neighbor’s opposite. Phew That was close. She keeps looking in the shed.
As her eyes scanned the dusty and overcrowded shed, Laura suddenly notices a large box in the corner. And a terrible feeling hits the pit of your stomach.
A random box
In the corner was a massive box covered with fabric. What was inside? Laura slowly made her way and tore off the fabric. She had to find out why her parents didn’t want her here. What were they hiding?
She opens the box and right there and then Laura’s knees fall to the floor. She couldn’t believe it. Was that legitimate? Was that why her parents were so devious?
The truth is revealed
You see, it turned out that there was a top-of-the-line computer in the box with a note on it that said “For Laura” she was speechless!
She had wanted this computer for years and when she started college in a few months she gave her parents a few pointers, but she never expected them to get through!
Back in the house
Laura knew she couldn’t let her parents know that she had found the computer. You would be heartbroken. She quickly leaves the shed and goes back to her house.
She sits down on the sofa and looks out the window until her parents come back. She couldn’t believe it. As if they got her such an amazing computer!
Her parents came back and Laura kept her lips closed. She would wait for them to surprise her, after all, she didn’t want them to know that she was going against her.
As they walked through the door Laura walked over and gave them both a hug. She said nothing, but her affection said a thousand words.
