What’s the time Mr. Wolf (Friday Fictioneers)

March 4, 2021

When the first package went missing a suggestion was made it was an opportunistic passerby.

After several, it was assumed someone in the building was a thief. No one said it out loud, but it was there, in the side eyed glances, sneers and clicking tongues.

Then the old lady on the fourth floor did not appear at tenants meeting. She never missed a chance to accuse others of making too much noise. A day later Charlie from 2 vanished. Then Shauna. After that we got out.

The building was condemned last week.

This morning, a package went missing downstairs.

  1. Great title for the story. Moving out seems a wise way to go.

  2. Getting out may not have been enough

  3. Just in time, hopefully.

  4. So–just keep on moving and hope whatever it is will give up?

  5. Oh, creepy. I had to look up Mr. Wolf, because I’ve never heard of that game before. Interesting and even more creepy now!

  6. A mysterious spirit is determined to disrupt all the package deliveries – Will they ever be rid of him/it/her.

  7. Yuck-oo. I don’t want to hang around for a second time around.

  8. Very suspenseful! I think another move is in order, and in the dead of night so “no-one” notices.

  9. Other worldly influences get away with a lot in desperate situations. Probably haunted. 😉

  10. Dear Laurie,

    Here’s hoping they’re getting out in time.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  11. I’ve seen where packages get booby-trapped so when opened they spray glitter and skunk scent and have a live cam that activates with GPS. They need one of these badly. Time to solve the mystery!
