So while my parents were doing birthday things without me, I thought it was a good idea to try to see if I could see Horsey. I knew where she is kept – on the Unfinished Room beyond the Laundry Room.
I had long since mastered the art of going through a doorway, but I never had to open one beyond nudging a door open. So the Laundry Room door was slightly ajar so I took a chance and went in, hoping to get to hook up with Horsey. The problem started when the door closed after me. The lights were off and there were no windows so it was very dark. I tried to go back from the door I came from but it would not open, no matter how hard I pushed. I tried the other doors, to no avail. It was cold and dark, and I was so scared. I tried to cry for help, but there wasn’t anybody in the house. I cried until I fell asleep.
My dad always comes at 2pm to make me lunch. So after 4 hours I was saved, and now I am happy again.
Life Lesson: When you feel trapped, scared and helpless, wait. Somebody who loves you will come for you.
