A package arrived late one afternoon....

It was postmarked from Japan....
"Hmmm"....
What could she possibly be getting from Japan ?
She hurried upstairs to open it....
As she pried the sealed box open,
an enormous amount of green tissue paper came spilling out....
She waded through what seemed like POUNDS of the green paper...
and on the very bottom of the HUGE box.....
there was a tiny, gift wrapped package...
"Hmmm".....
What could this be ???
She hurried to open the 'gift'....
Inside it was a KEY....
a GOLD KEY....
no note.....
no tag attached to it....
just a key.....
She thought for sure that she had missed the card among all the tissue paper....
So she tore it all apart....
NOTHING......
Weird......very weird....
Something about this strange, dramatic , little delivery made her shiver......
The key had nothing inscribed on it...
No name, serial number, ....nothing....
So....
What was she supposed to do with it ??
I mean, who in Japan would be sending her an anonymous key ?
She placed the package with the key in it on her vanity table....
As she did so, her hand trembled.....
and she rushed out the door to run to the market.....
Shed forgotten to stop there earlier...
As she opened the car door.....
on the drivers seat, sat another package !!!
wrapped in the same green tissue paper.....
But there was a red rose on the seat as well....
a single, daunting , red rose.....
WHAT WAS GOING ON ??
HOW on Earth had someone gotten into her car ?
Should she call the police ?
Was she forgetting some special occasion or holiday ?
Should she open this next package ?
She looked around ....
Maybe whomever had left this was here somewhere......
Her trembling and shivering became profuse..
Sweat trickled down the back of her neck...
She was frightened,,,,,REALLY frightened...
There was a strange noise in the rose bushes behind her......
She turned..........(to be continued)
