A Story to tell from beginning to end
The end of a good mystery movie always circles back to the beginning of the story. Notice in these old movies they start with a whopper of a storm, dramatic lightning, thunder, the wind howling, blowing windows while curtains dance all around, lights suddenly disappear.
Have you noticed that the mystery story always begins in an old creeky house, with one or several guests who can’t leave because of the storm?
Next: Everyone gets sleepy!
Now that I have set the stage, the mystery unfolds! The guest ushered to their room, waiting for the stormy night to pass. And so it does!
Peaceful morning, the smell of fresh coffee and sweet cakes rouse all occupants.
“Where is our guest?”
Nowhere to be found his shoes perfectly placed under the unslept bed.
Pooof gone! Like that!
Years later, the youngest occupant, still a child, returns from school and notices all the dust cluttered under the ominous bed.
“Hey mom, today the teacher told us about our body how it begins and ends as dust to dust.”
“Someone under this bed is either going or just beginning.”
