Annabelle by Nancy Christie
Annabelle is a very hauntingly dark short story. So, obviously, I was thrilled to read it.
Annabelle is the daughter of a painter. Her father’s artwork means everything. So much so that it controls the family.
Annabelle’s mother is her father’s model. She receives all of the attention because as I said before, the art is everything.
Annabelle becomes jealous. She wants to be noticed. She wants to be wanted.
When the twist in the story is revealed, everyone’s life is turned upside down and it becomes more dark and disturbing than I had originally thought it was.
There is not much I can say without giving away the whole story. Go read it!
4/5 stars. It was a little slow in places, but the story was good and I was able to read it in one sitting.
