The Party of Dolls on the Walls

There once was a party, 

There once were 12 guests.

The rules were quite simple...

Smile or be dead.

The clock will strike 12, the fun will begin.

Death's diamond door is open at the end.

Someone is imitating, someone is lost.

The watchmaker's whirr whirr whirr whirring...

The watchmaker's spin spin spin spinning...

Look at yourself in the mirror with different eyes.

Your head will swing in time with some crazy dripping tune.

Your tiny hands are frozen...are frozen...are frozen...

Each guest hated mice, and each guest had a secret.

The first to dance will be the one who couldn’t keep it.

The second to eat will be the one to choke.

The third to sleep will be the one to snap.

The fourth to drink will be the one to clap.

The fifth to sing will be the one to crack.

The sixth to laugh will be the one to scratch.

The seventh to see the demon in hiding will break.

The eighth to lie about the mice will be the one to cry.

The ninth that had stood there and simply observed,

Will tap away to the woods and be lost to all.

Who is the traitor in this midst of deception?

Who is there left that can still keep smiling?

The watchmaker's heart is twisting.

The diamond bands are breaking.

This is the party of little dolls,

The smiling party of the little dolls on the walls,

All of them will smile, or I’ll leave them behind.

All of them will smile, or I’ll leave them to the mice.

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

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). ...

missmary: This story sucked me in from the start and kept me reading when I should have been in bed. My only disappointment is how it ended. While I have nothing against Sherlock/John pairings- and this was well done- I kind've hoped it would come out a little different just for a change. Still, this was w...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Brie Lundy: I have never read a story like this before. It was riveting. It kept me captive. Once I started it I couldn't stop until it was finished. 10/10. I need more of this book. They need to find the Wizard!!

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

Jordan Young: *ALERT FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Where to start? I don't know how to sum up this review, this story was absolutely sensational. Brilliant. Flawless. I loved every single bit of this story, it is truly amazing. I read this story in fifteen hours, it is magnificent. I loved everything about it, the p...

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo. Even though the story had some loopholes in some places, it made me contemplate failing in chemistry, because I was up all night glued to my mobile screen rather ...

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...
