The girl in the window

The family had lived in the rundown rental house for almost three years when someone first saw a child’s face in the window.

A little girl, pale, with dark eyes, lifted a dirty blanket above the broken glass and peered out, one neighbor remembered.

The child stared into the square of sunlight, then slipped away.

Months went by. The face never reappeared.
