The door had been left ajar, an invitation to enter. It was cold; he hadn’t realized it would be quite that cold and he pulled his hand back quickly.

Grasping the handle, he studied the smeared fingerprints and eased the door open a little more. Boxes and packages were piled high. He gazed in wonder.

A familiar sight caught his eye. Filled with the joy of discovery, he reached inside. The silence was broken

” Put that ice cream back Micky,” his mother sighed. “I knew a fridge-freezer was a bad idea.”

    At least your protagonist didn’t open the door to a demon groaning ‘Zuul’ ?. That would definitely have put them off grasping for the delectable ice cream.

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
