Story Summary

My five year old sister, Annabelle, was always claiming Mr. Trouble made her do bad things. Then she got Leukemia and as she got sicker and sicker, all she wanted was stories. When I plum ran out, I made up a story about a little girl who was corrupted by Mr. Trouble. She died that next morning, but I'm still telling stories and sometimes my room is pretty crowded with all my characters, but I don't mind. Sometimes even Annabelle comes back to sit a spell and listen to a story.
