This is the 7th short story about Nancy and Joan’s travelling adventures. They are all inspired by the personal photos presented by Crispina Kemp, taken on her wanderings through the countryside of her beloved home in England.

“Now I have, heard everything”

“Now I call that……”



“No Nancy, you’re not going in there.”




“But nothing! It looks like it going to cave

any minute.”

“No it doesn’t.”

“Look at that side roof.”

“Awe Nancy, where’s you sense of adventure?”

“You don’t want to know.”

“C’mon lets just take a wee peek.”

“Nancy. There’s no “Wee” in your vocabulary.”

“I won’t touch anything.”

“No! I said no. You’re curiousity is killing me.”



“The door is open.”

“No. The top part is open.”

“So we can look in then.”


“Yes Joan.”

“Oh alright, but just as you say, only a peek.”

“You coming?”

“Nope. It’s dark in there. Anything could

jump out!”

“I can’t go over there alone.”

“What! You, the intrepid adventurer can’t

go over there alone?”



“I’ll just ask you this one time and I promise

I’ll never ask you again.”

“Now I have, heard everything.”
