There once was a girl who walked down the block on her way home from school. When she crossed the street she noticed an abandoned building just a block ahead. She walked over to the building and noticed something strange. There was an ominous looking figure peering at her from the window. She curled up and furrowed her brows skeptically.
“Don’t be afraid. It’s just a mannequin.”
Just then an older woman walked by, smiling at her.
“Oh! Whew! Okay. Just a mannequin, huh?” The girl couldn’t believe she almost got worked up over a mannequin!
“This building once belonged to a woman who used to run a clothing store. They say her store had some of the most lifelike mannequins in town. There’s a rumor going around that she kidnapped people and encased their bodies in ceramic, so as to capture the beauty of her clothes.”
“Haha good one!”
“Careful. They say the spirits of the people she captured are trapped in the mannequins and now they move around the building every night!”
That made the girl flinch and sprint the rest of the way home. When she got home, she went to the bathroom to wash her face. Then, she looked back up and from her mirror, she saw an old gray faceless mannequin standing behind her.
