Three Floors Up
By Teresa Dean Smeigh
Copyright September 6, 2015

Mrs. Scully was outside. She heard a scuffling noise above her. Wondering what was going on she backed up so she could look at the front of the building.

Due to the heat, the window was open and she could see 2 year old Tammy standing on top of the dresser. She hoped the baby didn’t lean out.

She screamed for Mrs. Watkins to come get her baby before she fell.

Just as Tammy leaned forward, her mother grabbed her legs and caught her. She pulled her in, heart pounding and thanking Mrs. Scully.

She then comforted her crying baby.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

      Thanks Rochelle. That was actually partly true. When I was about 2 I climbed up onto the dresser, but the window was closed and my parents saw me and got me down.


  2. Thank goodness for Mrs. Scully!
