One cold night, my family and I had a birthday party at my grandma’s house. The day before, I was sick in bed, and because of the dreadful, stormy weather I had to stay alone at home.
When they left, I done my last piece of homework and then I went to lock all the doors. After, I decided to have an adventure and off I went into my bedroom to get my jet-black witch dress. Then I rushed to the stairs and went as quiet as a mouse, on tip-toes into the basement. Prickles of fright ran down my spine when I heard a noise. It was only the cat! Then I found out there was a secret passage……
When I was going in, I realised there was a slide and I went through it. I found myself in another floor. There was a huge baby piano and dusty portraits all around the room. The portraits were of my grandma, grandpa, great-grandparents of my aunts. I suspected there was something behind that black carpet on the wall. As I opened it I saw a treasure box. I was in the seventh heaven when I saw there were jewels and money.
Then I decided to leave it there and try to get back up. I went up from a rusty ladder and found myself back in the basement. I rushed up to my room and changed. All of a sudden I heard my mum calling and went to hug her. I told her what happened and we went to get the jewels with dad.
I’m glad that I stayed alone at home because I found a piano and another floor. As a reward mum and dad gave me that floor as my bedroom.
