“Harold, I love this place… specially the woodwork.”
“Let’s finalize the place, then.”
“Yes! But there is only one problem – dirt and dust. You know I don’t like that.”
“My, love don’t you worry about cleaning.”
Both Harold and his wife could see a car coming their way.
“See, I told you no worries. Humans are here. If they’ll stay, they’ll clean.” said Harold in a soft tone.
They both started laughing as the new tenants walked right through them.

Finish the story begins with: At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it.
A walk by the beach was a daily ritual for me. Today was no different…sea gulls, lonely shore, ferocious waves and cool sea breeze. Casting an impression on the soft wet sand, I walked.
Something shone in the sand like a piece of sun fallen from the sky. I went near it.
“Ah! What a beautiful marble.” I said, and picked it up.
I found a perfect place for it at home – in a bowl full of sea shells.
Touch…it wanted to be touched…more than once. I had picked it up twice and touched it more than three times marveling at its hollow beauty.
Spell…an unknown spell was broken and I could see liquid gold gushing through its cracks.
Fire…it breathed life and turned into a ball of fire.
It didn’t burn me, but I stared at it. Hollow turned into pure beauty. In a moment everything changed.
Shift…our gaze had interchanged. Now it was observing me from outside.
Trapped… I wondered if I’ll be visible to Billy when he comes home.
