And the words:
“Ah! The Wonder House! Can any enter?” – Kim by Rudyard Kipling
“Ah! The Wonder House! Can any enter?” Stacy squeaked in excitement, as she stood in front of the little store selling oriental treasures. It had statues of all kinds and sizes. Stacy had come on a holiday to Honk Kong with her husband and they were exploring the tourist attractions when she had spotted this quaint little shop, called “The Wonder House”. Rob wasn’t too keen on buying stuff for which they would have to find space, first in their luggage and later in their home, but he humored her and they entered the shop.
The shop keeper was a man of undetermined age. He showed whatever Stacy pointed too and gave a brief history of that object. Suddenly Stacy spotted a tiny jade Buddha in a corner and asked to be shown it. The man seemed reluctant to comply but on their insistence he brought it out and placed it on the counter. “Sir I must warn that this statue is not for everyone. It has some powers attached to it which cannot be controlled by everyone” This statement piqued Stacy’s interest and she bought it after a lot of bargaining.
Nobody’s heard from the couple since.
