Friday Fictioneers: The House in Her Dream

The realtor pushed open the door, dust particles swirled in the ensuing light. “This house hasn’t been lived in for years” she explained to the young couple whose eyes were drawn to the staircase in the entry.

“Don’t let it’s out of date fixtures fool you. It’s in as good a shape as any of the new houses being built”.

The man looked at his bride. “Is this the house in your dream?”
“Yes” she whispered.

Thirty days later the house was theirs. They went back to the grand staircase and found the compartment underneath. The jeweled box was inside, just like in her dream.
