The Open Window

This was a short story written by Saki, that I illustrated for "Joydhaak".

Here's a summary of the story as per wikipedia:

"The Open Window is a short story about Frampton Nuttel. Mr. Nuttel heads out to the countryside to calm his nervous condition, he takes along with him a handful of introduction letters his sister had given him. Mr. Nuttel visits the home of Mrs. Sappleton (as addressed on one of the letters), meets a young girl, the niece of Mrs. Sappleton, and she proceeds to have some fun at his expense. She explains that on that very day, three years earlier, their family had met with misfortune. The aunt’s husband and her two brothers were swallowed up in the bog near the moor and never found. It's further explained that each day the large French window is left open in hopes that the missing loved ones will return. The aunt rushes into the main sitting room and just then, outside the open window, Mrs. Sappleton’s husband and two brothers appear, having come back from a recent hunting trip."
