For days this went on, and for days she dismissed the clown as a hallucination, or a practical joke that could not possibly get inside her locked home. One morning she woke up and put her feet on the fuzzy carpet. She loved her fuzzy carpet, always there to comfort her when things were rough. But today, something was different; as her feet pressed against the soft floor, her toes squished through the mysteriously wet carpet.
