An involuntary gasp of shock escaped my lips when I opened the shoebox and saw the pointy-toed shoes. It could only mean one thing, she was dead and now it was my turn to carry on the legacy. I took the shoes from the box and slipped them on, a perfect fit! It was only then that I noticed the envelope. I tore it open –
“Dear Pip, please read this letter BEFORE you place the slippers on your feet. You have these shoes because I failed to follow these instructions. If you do not wish a similar fate, you won’t make the same mistake. Good luck. Love, Glenda.”
Thus I began the fight for my life.
