The little girl, who was not stupid, hated the doll, and so before she went to bed that night she hid it at the very far end of her room with its face to the wall. But when she woke up the next morning the doll had moved. It was now propped up on the table next to the window, and worst of all it was looking straight at her.– Robin Stevens
This week on Litro Lab, we bring you a spooky story about the complex relationship we all have with the objects we own. We like to accumulate them in our houses and spend large sums of money on them. Some make our lives easier, others are just pretty. We enjoy having them around because they define us. That said, have you ever wondered about the inner life of the things you own? What if they had a special kind of soul? Would they like you back? Or would they have more sinister feelings?
