Outside a silver orb hung low in the sky, as mysterious shadows scuttled through the cracks in the floorboards unsettling even those that slept in the darkest of night. In the far corner of the room, I observed my sister picking her way through the prized trinkets and dusty relics of the past that filled this strangers house. A flash of lightening momentarily illuminated the scene, and I trembled in the wake of darkness it left me in. I had never much liked this kind of larceny. I didn’t have much time to mull over these sentiments, when a large-winged insect flew straight into my face. I was sure it had attacked me. Abruptly the truth materialized, as I made out dozens of red butterflies quivering around some antique vase. I was suddenly filled with a deep sense of awe, for I knew these winged creatures were guardians of the vase, at once I shrieked out to my sister ‘We must leave this place’. [Kim Shillam]
