Wednesday Evening Post: Gypsies in the Wood Story

There’s gypsies in the wood. They’ve been watching for you from far far away; they want to take your baby away because they know that things that you know, yet they’ve been calling you to follow them. Can you come out and please? Yet you don’t know that devil has your number when the gypsies draw you into the woods; he will know he’s going to find you as he’s right behind you staring through your windows, he’s creeping down the hall to your room before entering your baby’s nursery room to steal him.

Knowing that your fast asleep he left the inch of the door open; the sound of creaking floor boards woke you up seeing dark shadows walking past, that’s when you realised it’s not your partner and that was when you realised the devil had finally reached your son. The past of your own had finally crept up on you; you screamed with cries waking up your partner up with a massive shock, you both ran out of the room and headed towards the woods as you followed the dark identity carrying your child.

Yet you had lost the dark identity as he was too far gone; yet the man your with has gone mad in the town tonight because the devils got your number, yet the hubby is going to shoot somebody down tonight to the point of losing his mind tonight. There’s a mad man running round and round tonight pleading anyone to join him in this mad plan of his; yet you know the devils got your number you can feel him running right beside you screaming deep inside you.

“Mrs Lurid! Mrs Lurid!” Cried Tilly hammering Mrs Lurid’s door down to wake her up and answer the door. The lights came flooding opening the front door flung open both Mrs Lurid and Mr Lurid stood there wrapping their dressing gowns around them as Mr Lurid started to put his wellington boots on he listened to Tilly.

“Tilly Tilly calm down what’s the matter” exclaimed Mrs Lurid. Trying to understand Tilly’s emotions “he’s got a gun..Michael…Michael’s got a gun. They’ve got our son Johnston they took him up to the woods” Cried Tilly as she dropped to the wet pavement. “Oh my word. Eddie go to the town hall sound the alarm then go to the woods” he nodded and told them to stay inside and lock all the doors and windows. “And for goodness sakes Mrs Lurid don’t open the doors to anyone unless you know my signal.” As he called back after him.

There’s a mad man running round and round the woods you know that the devils got your number; you know he’s right beside you screaming deep inside you, and someone said that he’s going to be calling your number up today.
