27.

A ghost once lived in a beautiful house. It swept the floor and set the table, removed the trash and rocked the crib. Eventually the little girl outgrew her dollhouse, but its ghost, dutiful and kind, sustained the eviction with pious resolve. Its presence has become a family heirloom, a subtle force to push in the chairs of every new girl’s imagination.
