What an evil little creature she turned out to be! I liked the twist at the end, and I won't say anything more about it in case someone reads the review before reading the story. Well done!
Years ago, actress Stephanie Powers did battle with a small doll that was bewitched. I cant remember the name of the show, but I'll never forget how frightening it was. Your story reminds me if it, but with a much better outcome.
Oh dear, the Cartwright men do have trouble with women - even little china ones! LOL Interesting use of your prompts - and inventive! Thanks.
I bet Ben wished his curiosity didn't get the better of him and he left that package well alone! However, thank goodness Hoss was there to save his family! Great use of your three prompt words!
I saw this hadn't yet been reviewed so I checked in -- a combination of Pandora's box and "The Bride of Chucky". I don't want to give anythng away so let me just say tha although this dealt with the "superatural", it did seem a bit excessively sadistic for my taste. But looking at your three words, it was a weird combination so congratulations on combining them to create a story-line. This story was literally a Ponderosa Nightmare.
