A Story For Sunday: What’s In The Cellar ? by Jeanette Cheezum

THUMP - New Story Up At THRILLERS KILLERS N CHILLERSA few years ago, over at the late, lamented THRILLERS, KILLERS N CHILLERS, Jeanette Cheezum gave us this chiller:

Sometimes she could play in the wash tub that sat under one of the windows. The man had dropped a hose down the wall and put water in there for her to sit in, once or twice a month. There wasn’t much else to do down in the cellar. Except hold onto her rag doll and lay on her old mattress on the floor.’
