After her meal, she washed her plate and cup and put them away, wondering why she couldn't hear her canary singing from the other room. Most of the time, it was almost impossible to make it stop.

When she closed the cupboard, she threw a glance out the window, and frowned, feeling suddenly uneasy. Seven o'clock on a summer's day, and already it was getting dark.

She shook her head, dismissed the feeling, and left the kitchen to go upstairs.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
