The Castle- Original Writing

I walked down the narrow, moonlight lane on my way to the park. I was
meeting Summer, Leon and Tiffany. It was really cold and it was
beginning to get dark. I felt nervous walking down the lane as there
were no lights. Eventually I got to the end of the lane and as I
turned the corner I could see the park in the distance. I could hear
summer laughing like a hyena. I carried on walking.

Leon was shining the bright torch in my face. My eyes stung and I
grabbed the torch from his plump, sticky hand. He grabbed it back
holding it in one hand while holding a chocolate bar in the other.

I explained why I was so late and asked what they were planning to do
now that I had arrived.

“We have just been playing dares and Tiffany dared one of us to go in
the castle up on the hill at Florence’s Gardens, but we’re all
scared!” explained Summer. She continued, “Why don’t you go in there,

Ryan, look ever so slightly scared, refused outright reminding us of
all the stories about that castle, especially the one about the boy
who went in almost twenty years ago and still hasn’t been found.

“Oh, they’re just myths and rumours, you’re not telling me you
actually believe them, are you?” said Summer.

“Well if you don’t believe them, then you go in there, as you’re so
sure they’re not true!” I shouted.

Summer’s smile dropped which made me wonder if she might be beginning
to regret what she had just said, but Summer isn’t the type of person
to back down from a dare so she replied, “Fine, I will then. I’ll
prove to you it’s all lies.”

The castle was tall up on the hill overlooking long stretches of green
fields. The walls of the castle were jet black and looked dull and
dreary. Some of the windows were smashed and through them it was
possible to see a glimpse of the dirty looking rooms inside, which

The park is about to wake from its long, tranquil and peaceful sleep. The woodland is beginning to arise-a humming grasshopper and the odd droning bee. The sunlight shines, making tall beams of light through the gaps in the branches of the trees. The tall night-scary trees become friendlier in the early morning brightness. As the woodland prepares for another swelteringly warm, sunny day the air becomes moist and heavy, making it hard to breathe....   [tags: Papers]

were covered in dust and cobwebs.

We began to make our way up the hill. By now it was pitch black and we
were all extremely cold. The wind was blowing and the leaves on the
trees were rustling and the wind gushed past. I was starting to feel
scared. I could sense a creepy atmosphere around the castle; it
reminded me of something out of a scary movie. I was beginning to
think that I would prefer to be back at home, snuggled up in bed with
a warm cup of hot chocolate. I don’t know if the others felt the same
but I definitely didn’t want them to think I was scared so I just kept
my feelings to myself and kept walking up the hill towards the castle.
When we finally reached the huge wooden door Leon turned to Summer and
pointed at it.

“Go on then. If you’re so brave, you go in there and come back and
tell us what you find.”

“Ok,” she whispered. There was a slight tremble in her voice, even
though on the outside she was trying to look confident. As she gently
pushed the door open, it creaked loudly. She turned back. Tiffany
pushed her forward.

“Go on!” she shouted.

Summer turned back and began to make her entrance into the castle.
Leon, Tiffany and I looked at one another. We stood in silence
listening while we could hear Summer’s footsteps as she journeyed
further into the castle. The footsteps faded and Tiffany began to

“I can’t believe she is actually in there. I though that when we got
here she would change her mind!”

“Me, too,” agreed Leon.

We sat down on the damp grass and began to discuss what we all thought
Summer would find in there. All caught up in our conversation, we
didn’t realise how long she had been gone when we heard a long, high
pitched scream. We all jumped up. Tiffany had a look of horror on her
now pale face.

“What’s happened?” Leon exclaimed.

I began to shout Summer’s name hoping, that she would shout back,
laughing, saying she was winding us up, and just trying to scare us.
But there was no reply.

“We should never have let her go in there.” I began to say. “I wonder
if she’s ok?”

“One of us has to go in there,” said Tiffany sternly. “We have to go
and rescue her. She is obviously in trouble.”

Leon looked brave and agreed that he would go in and find Summer. I
was extremely scared and nervous as I watched Leon go in the same door
as Summer had gone in around half an hour ago. But I knew we had to do
something, we couldn’t just leave Summer in there. I know it was
selfish but at that moment I just thought how glad I was that it was
Leon going into the castle and not me.

The next 10 minutes passed. Nothing. Leon and Summer were now in the
house and neither Tiffany or I knew what was going on or if they were

“We’ve got to go in there!” whispered Tiffany.

“Give it another 5 minutes” I began. But before I could even finish my
sentence, she was running towards the doors and into the castle. I
hesitated. I was so nervous it was unbelievable. I was shaking – I
don’t know whether it was because of the ice cold weather or because I
was so scared, but I knew no matter how frightened I was I had to go
in there. I slowly pushed open the door and peeked inside. It was
pitch black. All I could see were the flickering lights ahead at the
end of the long straight corridor that I was approaching. I slowly and
carefully made my way towards the light. When I finally arrived at the
end of the creepy corridor I was faced with two doors. One on my right
and the other on the left. I went with my first instinct and choose
the door on my right. I quietly pushed the door open and stepped
through. It was another long corridor. There were cobwebs all over the
place. Dust covered the dirty walls and carpet. I walked down the
second corridor.

Palms sweating with the fear of not knowing if I was going to get out
of this castle alive. But I knew I couldn’t go back now and I just had
to keep walking. I must have only been walking for a minute or so, but
it seemed like forever, when I caught a glimpse of another door ahead.
As I approached it, so many thoughts were running through my head of
what could be behind it. I hesitated for a second, then reached out to
the door and pushed it hard. I was shocked when I saw darkness and
felt a bitter cold come over me. I was in the outside world again!
Suddenly, I heard a crash as the door slammed loudly behind me. I
turned around and it was then I noticed that I was standing right
where I was standing before I went in the castle and the door I came
out of was the door I went in.

I felt relieved and safe but then it dawned on me that I was alone. I
still didn’t know where the others were. They weren’t anywhere around.
I thought for a moment and came to the conclusion that they must still
be in the house. Then I remembered there had been 2 doors when I had
come to the end of the first corridor. They must have gone into the
door on the left whereas I had chosen the door on the right. I had to
go back and go through the door and try and find them, but as I tugged
on the door handle to enter the castle for the second time something
was wrong. The door was jammed. I pulled harder and harder on the door
handle but it wouldn’t budge. It’s now a week on and I haven’t seen my
friends since. I hate thinking that they are going to be stuck in that
castle for the rest of there lives – if they even are still alive.
