Ghost Week: Devil Doll

I know, I know, the “Evil Creepy Doll that Says ‘Mama’ and Chases You Through the House with a Knife” is a bit of a silly horror stereotype. I’m not even going to pretend there’s something that Twilight Zoney happening in Lubbock.

But I am acquainted with someone in town who owns an antique store. She does decent business, but there’s one item she’s been trying to sell for years but just can’t get rid of.

It’s an old Madame Alexander doll — the kind of doll that would normally be considered very collectible. But this one has a severely cracked face — the only feature that’s really recognizable is the left eye, and other than that, it’s just a maze of cracked and warped plastic.

It’s not a very attractive toy to show off, so she prefers to keep it out of the way — either stored in the back or inside a box.

But it won’t stay there.

Every evening, she puts the doll away in the back room. In the morning, it’s out on the shelves. She moves it into a box. By the afternoon, it’s back on the shelves again.

She’s thrown it away. And it still ends up back on the shelves. She even sold it once. It still ended up back on the shelves.

It doesn’t do anything. It doesn’t walk around. It doesn’t talk. It’s just creepy. And she can’t keep it from showing up inside the store.
