Emma loved looking at Gran’s snow globes. She had never seen such life-like figurines. The globes were throughout the house, but there were hundreds of them in the attic.

When Emma asked Gran about them, she would make up the most wonderful stories. Emma laughed when Gran told her how she put the people in the globes and why.

Gran told her how she and her best friend used to climb a nearby mountain. One day, Gran overheard her telling a boy who Gran liked, that she didn’t like him at all and couldn’t stand being around him.

Gran got so mad, she took one of the empty snow globes her father sold, and put it beside her pillow when she went to bed.

Just like her Gran had taught her.

Dreaming, she visualized her friend trapped in the globe, standing by the mountain.

In the morning, the snow globe had the exact scene she dreamt about... her friend looking up the mountain, only her eyes moving frantically with a horrified expression.
