Thanks again to Jane Arnold – I first heard her read this story years ago at a TESOL-SPAIN event and it’s stuck with me ever since.
Nora was a little old lady who lived in a remote part of Scotland. She had lived alone for many years since her husband died and to pass the time on lonely nights, she would do jigsaw puzzles.
One stormy night, Nora was doing a puzzle when suddenly, she heard a knock at the door. She was more than a little surprised.
“Who can be calling at this late hour?” she thought to herself as she walked down the hallway and opened the door.
