    You copied this: “A woman is sitting in her old, shuttered house. She knows that she is alone in the whole world; every other thing is dead. The doorbell rings.” Its one of the shortest stories ever written and its credited to Thomas Bailey Aldrich

    Yeah, it was a retelling of that story, though I never heard that exact version… I found a version of this with about 15 words on a forum somewhere and shortened it to six.

    But I definitely can’t take credit for it!

    Just copied Fredric Brown’s short story “Knock”. “The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door…” Not cool man.
