The Evil Garden Gnome

“They say if you enter the door at the top of the grassy stairs you will be captured and tortured by evil garden gnomes.”
“Who says?” Johnny couldn’t believe his friend believed such a ridiculous tale.
Johnny ran up the stairs, “I’ll show you, that is just a myth.”
“No Johnny, come back.”
The large wood door opened before Johnny could announce his presence.
A small man with a white beard and pointed red hat stood just beyond the threshold.
Johnny turned to run, but quickly learned his t-shirt had been snagged by a garden hoe.
“Welcome young man.”

    Perfect role for a garden gnome. They all seem very sinister to me – I couldn’t bear to have one in my garden; I’d have nightmares. Sorry about poor Johnny; I wonder what his fate will be. Cute story.
