Post 1579. Sunday August 13

For Sunday Photo Fiction where we have a picture of Doctor Who's Tardis!




Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Disguise”

“Disguise who?”

 Disguise in love with you!”

John got home from work later than Lea and they always did a knock-knock joke before she'd open the door and let him in.






“Knock knock”

“Who’s there and why  that funny voice?"  Lea giggled. "John?"

“Knock knock”

“John, you are scaring me”

Lea edged open the door a little. A man in a black hoody pushed his way in and slammed his fist on the light switch plunging the flat into darkness.

"Hello Lea"

He switched on a torch and held it beneath his chin.

“Get out” she shouted shoving him back. He staggered but held his ground. Still, with the torch lighting his face he lowered his hood. She recognised him as the creature from whom she’d fled two years earlier. She froze with fear. He turned the torch on her.

“I said I’d find you, Lea".

“What the hell do you want Mike?”

“Stupid question Lea. I want what's is mine. I’m taking you home”



“Knock knock” Nothing. “Knock knock” Louder.

“Lea, open the door sweetheart” Still nothing.

John used his key to let himself in. Lea was nowhere to be seen.

  2. If you have a past, don't open the door until you know for sure. Very scary.

  9. I live alone and never answer the door to anyone I do not know. OTOH, if a TARDIS is out front, all bets are off. (though with a new female doctor maybe not)
