You walk the populated and busy streets of the city. Suddenly, out of the
corner of your eye you notice something oddly out of place. Across the street, there is an
old house surrounded by bamboo shoots that sits in between two tall skyscrapers. Its as if
you're the only you can see it as none of the passerby's seem to notice the house but
maybe its just because they're busy. You walk across the street and stand before the
strange house, desperately wanting to check things out for yourself to answer all the
questions running through your mind. You notice that despite the fact that the house is
old looking, its in good condition. It feels as if something is pulling you towards the
house as you find yourself taking that first yet hesitant step onto the property.
Suddenly, you start walking toward the house, unable to turn around or walk in any other
direction regardless of how much you try, its as if your legs aren't your own.
You reach the door and open it, stepping inside and closing the door behind you. Two young
girls stand before you, just a few feet away but there is something quite odd about them,
more odd then the house, they have three legs and are conjoined at the third, middle leg.
"The Mistress has been waiting for you." They say in unison before turning around and
walking down the hallway. "Don't forget to take your shoes off" One of the girls say and
"The Mistress doesn't like having dirt tracked into the house." the other girl says, or so
you assume, as their voices are identical. You take your shoes off and follow the girls
into a large, open room that is filled with a hazy smoke. They open the doors and wait for
you to step in first, which you do and they step in after you, closing the door behind
them and walking over to a young woman. The woman lied on an old looking red and velvety,
Victorian sofa as she smoked out of a long ornate pipe. Its as if the woman doesn't even
realize you're there after waiting for several minutes that seemed like an eternity but
you're surprised when out of no where she speaks casually. "What is it you wish for?"
