The Door By The Grandfather Clock
- an introduction to mystery

The Door was just an ordinary door.

It was wood and finished with satin finish white paint.

As the Door closed, it sounded familiar as the latch clicked.

James was in the room when the Door closed.

He was alone with someone else seated behind a big desk, who started talking.

The talking paused briefly when The Grandfather Clock by the Door ticked and sounded some deep tone chimes.

James was nervous. He could hear low whispers and movement coming from behind the Door.

The man behind the desk began talking louder.

James was suspicious that the loud man was drowning out the faint whispers behind the Door.

As each minute went by, The Grandfather Clock by the Door made its usual brief tocking sound.

James couldn't help but hear every stroke of the pendulum of The Grandfather Clock by the Door.

James was nervous. They told James The Grandfather Clock by the Door had recording devices and sound carriers that would let people behind the Door listen.

As James left the room, he opened The Door by The Grandfather Clock and noticed the clock's ticking and pendulum motion.

People scattered quickly as they did not expect anyone to exit by The Door By The Grandfather Clock.

James had decisions to make and people to contact.

Put it in book form. I bet Trump will buy it. Just make sure he sounds beautiful when you describe him. You know, a lovely golden man, with lush hair, and huuge hands, who can never tell a lie. Call him a genius too, it might make the NYT Best Seller list. He'll see to it. Believe me!

J. Edgar Allen Poe.


Is that some kind of mandela effect? I'm pretty sure i spelled his name correctly.


Edit: Oh wait you combined J. Edgar Hoover with Poe. Gotcha. Nice one.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
-John Donne


Xuen the writer! Nice work!
