She couldn’t recall the name of her owner any more. She remembered that the girl had worn nice frilly starched dresses, Nanny had carefully curled her blond hair every morning so that the corkscrew locks would tumble down on her shoulders, and she had had a pair of big blue innocent eyes. But her name....? Mabel? Victoria? Abigail? Gertrude? Maybe it was Mabel... or was it Maude? All this had happened more than a hundred years ago, after all.
Mabel-or-Maude was a rich and happy child and she used to adore her lovely doll. “She’s almost like a living girl! Look, Nanny! She can move her arms and legs, and her eyes open and close!” – and she gave the doll a hug, or she went to comb its soft, natural hair. All was so idyllic... until one day, when everything suddenly changed. Mabel-or-Maude and her nanny went for a walk but only Nanny came back and she was crying, then everybody in the house was crying, too... then they packed in big trunks everything Mabel-or-Maude had ever owned, including her beloved dolly.
Ever since that day her life had been silence. Now and then she could hear some rumbling noise or maybe some steps in the attic of the huge abandoned house... but soon everything became silent again and all she could do was remembering and waiting... and remembering again.
