Sometimes we are lucky enough to receive a gift that exceeds all the rest and Ivy is one of those gifts! Ivy is a plant, but not just any a plant, an exotic one that needs care and attention every day. Hopefully, on Monday when the family is away, our sister can take care of Ivy. On Tuesday, our sister has disappeared, and our grandfather takes care of Ivy. On Wednesday, when our sister and grandfather have both disappeared, our grandmother takes care of Ivy. Day after day, Ivy grows bigger and bigger, while the house becomes more and more empty . . .
