Hannah stared at the new plant. It looked like ivy, just jazzed up by great-auntie’s crystal bowl which it sit in.
‘I don’t like it,’ Hannah declared, ‘it’s giving me a funny feeling.’
Her mum who was making fried eggs and chips for dinner, tutted and replied, ‘it was a gift and it’s just a harmless plant.’
The feeling that something wasn’t right lingered. At midnight, Hannah crept downstairs and saw the plant no longer on the table but by the back door.
‘Let me out,’ an eerie voice spoke as the leaves of the plant shook.
