LEGEND

WHILE ON MY WAY TO DANCE CLASS ONE EVENING, I NOTICED A DOLL IN THE
PICTURE WINDOW OF A HOUSE. NOT THINKING ANYTHING OF IT, IMENTIONED
IT TO MY GIRLFRIEND. SHE WAS AMAZED THAT I HAD NEVER HEARD THE STORY
ABOUT THE LITTLE GIRL THAT ONCE LIVED IN THE HOUSE. IT IS BELIEVED
THAT ONE EVENING THE GIRL WAS PLAYING IN THE DRIVEWAY AND THAT NOT
SEEING HER, THE FATHER RAN OVER HER AND KILLED HER. THE MOTHER OF
THE CHILD WENT CRAZY AND NOW BELIEVES THE DOLL TO BE HER DAUGHTER.
SHE TAKES CARE OF THE DOLL IN WAYS THAT A MOTHER WOULD TAKE CARE
OF A CHILD. SHE EVEN GOES SO FAR AS TO DRESS THE DOLLUP FOR
SPECIAL OCCASIONS SUCH AS CHRISTMAS AND HALLOWEEN.

Submitter comment: THE HOUSE IS ON OUTER DRIVE IN DEARBORN.
