Microfiction challenge #5: The Door

You might like to use this week’s image to inspire a completely new story, with a word count I’ll leave to your discretion, but try to keep it micro please 🙂 You can also carry on the story you started last week with the painting (La Porte by Henri Duhem) to inspire the next episode. I chose this painting at random out of a dozen or so images I’d picked out as writing prompts, so I’m crossing fingers it works as a follow on to  last week.

Post the link to your story in the comments and do say if you’re inviting a critique from the readers.
