Insanity


Leina cheerfully placed her latest copy of Vanity Fair on her breakfast table.

She had just taken a bite of her apple when suddenly ,"Blank."

The smell of the garden and the morning dew escaped from the huge bite she took going deep into her, it smelt like the house of the Seven Dwarves. She looked at the apple as if she was surprised to see how it got there. Absentmindedly, she placed the apple on her magazine. The sunlight bounced off the apple giving it a shiny sheen.

She looked around. Everything was unfamiliar. The windows were too bright and casted long shadows everywhere.

She closed the shutters. The air was chilly.

She said aloud, "I...." then realised, "Who am I?"

Two days later, the apple was still on the table. The door was left unlocked. The shutters were open again. And she had disappeared into the city.
