“Well, it’s about time you answered the door, Lewy!”  Dawson blurted out when the door opened.

“Sorry,”  Dawson said sheepishly.

“I’m staying here in the condo for a while.  There will be no more traveling from town to town.”

“What do you mean?  What about Charisma?”

“I’m tired of her. She always steals the show and no one ever looks at me!”

“Why do you have a large duffle bag packed then?”

“Answer me!”

“I destroyed her,”  he said in a low voice.

Dawson looked at the large duffle bag and said, “Lewy!  You’re not telling me she’s in that bag are you?”

“Yes, I got really upset and I just wanted to get rid of her as fast as possible.”

Dawson carefully opened the duffle bag and gasped out loud.

He picked up the bag and shoved it into Lewy’s lap.

“Here! You better get busy and sew her back together. Afterall, you are the best ventriloquist in the world, and she is just a dummy!”

  1. Great story Jessie. I really thought he was talking about his wife’s/girlfriend’s body. I was thinking this sounds pretty horrific for Jessie lol. I’m glad it was only a dummy and that even though he was mad at the dummy, he could sew her back together. No harm, no foul. Thank goodness.

  2. Woah! That scared me for a second. I really thought this would turn out to be a gruesome story (although that would be equally exciting!). Nice twist and clever take, Jessie! 😀
