maybe minutes, she got to the bottom, strangely, she was still alive. There was a tiny gloomy room, it was cold, too cold, the floor felt strangely soft, like that blue carpet in her old room. Finally, she managed to stand up, although, if she knew what she was about to see, she would rather stayed on the floor. It was there, the doll was floating in the middle of the place, fixing its macabre gaze at her. Horror was the only emotion she had left, it was consuming her. “It’s much better, play together” she continued singing her frightening song. Joanna couldn’t deal with it anymore so she ran to turn it off. She grabbed the doll from her back, searching for a power button, but there wasn’t. There wasn’t even a music box. After a few seconds the doll started to slowly disintegrate, until it came to ashes. Her legs turned into jelly, shaking to fear. Suddenly she started feeling a stinging pain in the middle of her back. Instinctively she put her hand there feeling something hard and plastic, it was the music box. She tried desperately to take it off but she couldn’t. It was stuck into her, it was part of her body, dripping blood all over the room. Just like that day.
