The Lanterns

Sandra turned her key and was greeted by silence. An eerie light pervaded the dark room. Two dusty lanterns glowed from the counter. 'Where did those come from ?' she wondered. A grip of dread tightened her stomach. She glanced around: the couch's shadow, a twinkle from the coffee table, fading sun casting an orange hue.

She heard a scuffle from the kitchen; her heart jumped into her mouth. Her eyes were suddenly blinded by a fierce beam.

" Surprise ! Happy Birthday, Sandra. "

She blinked at the chorus. A twinkling candled cake welcomed her home.

Thank you for reading. Wishing you a pleasant day.
