What is a brief description of the two false stories Vera creates in the short story, "The Open Window."
Vera is a very imaginative but cruel girl. Although she know Mr. Nuttel is on the verge of a nervous break-down, she fabricates an intricate story that scares him almost to death and drives him out of the house in order to entertain herself. The story consists of two lies. The first lie is a story about her aunt's husband and two brothers. According to Vera, three years ago a "tragedy" occurred when the men went hunting and never returned. She mentions that they went out though the French window. The second lie is that the aunt keeps the window open in hopes of her husband's and brothers' return. In reality, the men were alive and had gone hunting just a few hours earlier. Upon seeing them return, Nuttel goes "nuts."
The second story she tells is to her aunt. When she asks why Nuttel ran off, Vera replies, "I expect it was the spaniel; he told me he had a horror of dogs." She then proceeds to describe an incident where Nuttell spent the night in a grave while rabid dogs snarled above him.
