Fresh Paint

I like my new curtains. But I don’t like the stinky paint. Edward Bear doesn’t like it either because he went away. I’m sort of scared, but I’m a big girl and Daddy says big girls don’t cry.

The bed is so soft. But the pillows are all wrong. Nurse knows I like one pillow not two. I’m brave. I’ll put one in the wardrobe.

That’s not my dress.

Candle light. Someone’s coming.

That’s not Nurse. Why’s she screaming?

I’ll scream back.

The candle tumbles but I grab it before it hits the floor.

The flame doesn’t hurt – this time.
