Those Eyes!



“Whatever happens, don’t open this?” Mom commanded as if the colonel of the army and marched out of the room. 

I obeyed with a soft nod but confused eyes.

I stared at it and saw a pair of eyes on the brass knobs of the polished brown wood. 

Peeked outside the room. 

“Should I open it?” I grinned like a witch, “But maybe it had something forbidden for me, just 

like Adam’s apple?” I contemplated. 

Stared back at the hutch, but darn those eyes reflected at me! 

"Is it my consciousness or just the reflection of my own eyes?"

So much temptation to resist. I like the reflection of her eyes.

It's a great opening line...it sets the tone for the entire piece, and pulls a reader into the story. Well done!
