about this story

On the upper east side of Manhattan there is an old home that is tucked behind a fancy new high rise apartment complex. As a child I was told to never go in the home because it wasn't safe, but of course this was an invitation to explore. So one day, at the age of eight, I found myself unsupervised. I quickly went to old building, went in the open front door and began looking around. On the second l found a large library. I began looking and the different books and finally took a book from a shelf and opened it. In the page I opened to I found a picture of a lady in high heel shoes jumping from a window. Just at that moment I heard a window open and saw a lady jump from the window. I follow and jumped out also. We landed into a group of commuters entering the subway. The lady looked at me and motioned for me to follow her. So I did and we entered the subway and entered a train that took us out the end of Long Island. We got off the train and I followed the lady to an old house that looked exactly like the old house from which we had jumped. We entered the home and went to second floor library and the lady took off the shelf the same book I had taken off the shelf at the identical house in Manhattan. She opened the book to the same page and there was a picture of an eight year old girl jumping from the window. So I went and jumped from the window and landed back in the identical of the old house in Manhattan. I found the book open on the table and instead of a picture of a lady jumping out of the window there was an old pressed flower and note that said "Thank You."
