Home Sweet Home [flash 200]

Pumpkin house

Okay, so yeah, Peter bought this house for me a while back and at first I was all happy to putter around my own place, but now I think he did it just to bully me.

Why do you feel that way?

Well, sometimes I want to take a little jaunt to town by myself and he always says to wait for him. I never get to go anywhere alone.

And how does that make you feel?

Like a child really. I have to ask him for cash to spend because he made me quit my business of selling baskets of painted pine cones.

How do you envision the future?

I’m a bit scared honestly. Apparently, this is Peter’s pattern. I recently found out he bought his first wife a house on Pumpkin Place too… and then she mysteriously disappeared.

Are you afraid he intends to harm you?

I don’t know. The other day when we went to town, he bought a spelling book and said he intends to memorize every word.

Are you talking about reading or magic?

I’m not sure, but isn’t it a bit strange that yesterday you were a squirrel and today you’re a talking psychiatrist?
