There once was a man
Who lived just out of town
No one had ever seen him
But everyday the stores would be restocked
With his amazing dolls

There once was two girls
Who decided to sneak a peek
But one was scared, so she stayed behind
While the other one ventured inside
To brave the mystery

Inside the girl found nothing
Only some pieces of ordinary furniture
And a couple of dolls
She picked one up for her friend
And started to leave

But out of the corner of her eye
She spied a hidden door
In the shadows behind a shelf
She slowly pushed the shelf aside
To reveal the door

Unable to hold in her curiosity
She gently pushed it open
And she took a step within
Suddenly the doll was no longer in her hand
And the door silently closed behind her

Meanwhile, the girl outside was still waiting
And the sun was now setting
Unable to take it anymore
The girl ran back to her home
And left the other girl alone

The next day
The girl went over to her friend's house
But she was not there
She continued to search the town
But she was nowhere to be found

So she ventured back into the forest
And made her way back to the man's house
But the lights were off
And not a sound could be heard
No one was home

Shivering, she turned away from the house
And started to head back home
But on the way back
She found a lovely doll on the ground
And decided to pick it up

She continued to walk down the path
But the town never appeared
Wondering if she made the wrong turn
She headed back the way she came
But the man's house didn't appear

She continued to walk
Afraid to stop walking even for a moment
But the trees only seemed to get thicker
Until they blocked all of the light
And she was left in darkness

She clutched the doll harder
And let her feet carry her
But she tripped in the darkness
And the doll flew out of her hand
Leaving her all alone

Scared, she started walking again
And just as she was losing all hope
She spied a shadow moving just ahead
Unsure of what to do
She followed it as it continued to move

Suddenly the shadow began to run
And the girl was forced to chase after
The trees spiraled around her
As she stumbled in the darkness
The path disappeared from beneath her feet

Finally the shadow slowed by a small clearing
The girl sighed in relief
As she slowed down to a walk
There was a small patch of light in the middle
Something she hadn't seen in a while

The shadow finally reached the light
Which revealed her as the girl's friend
But she didn't look like herself
Her eyes were glazed and her movements stiff
As if she was nothing more than a doll
