Introduction

The Door Nikita Mehta 9L Eng Short story Mr.Blond The Old Lady sank wearily into her cracked leather armchair and shifted around to get comfortable with the lumps. With a sigh, she looked around at her world. For two years, she had been restricted from living upstairs because of rheumatism. And she often wondered how much dust had accumulated in her once proud and loved house. Now she gazed around at the things that filled her life. There was the old mantle piece above the fire on which lived photographs of her family all now departed. One was of a young woman with a gentle, smiling face, her eldest daughter who now lived in Australia.

He had a fine look in his eyes, a firm set to his jaws and a hint of a smile on his lips. He reached out his hands towards her as she felt herself moving out of the chair without any pain Then he spoke, 'come it has been long. Come with me.' She took his hand. Together they walked in harmony, along the hall and walked out where there was the sound of children playing and sunlight brightening up the street.
