Rank 8 Out of 10
          Giselle and Robert didn't stop. The light seemed as if another ghost was going to chase them. Then suddenly, the light began to twirl like a tornado of a thousand colours. And then, poof! Out stepped the most littlest creature ever. A tiny fairy, not a child, in fact a woman. But so small that you possibly couldn't call it Aunt! And then, Giselle stopped. She had played fairies when she was almost six. She believed in them. Though, she was much too big, a teenager yet she had trust that fairies were sweet and darling little creatures.
          But Robert had never believed in fairies. And now he thought that probably Giselle was right. Giselle spoke about them all the time and he had always called her a baby.
          "What's your name?" Giselle confidently spoke. "Well, my name is Fiona", a tiny but lady like voice spoke. "And you must be Giselle and Robert". "But how do you know our names. Aunt.... No Fiona.... Whatever" finally Robert spoke. And then Fiona began "Never mind about that Oh, I forgot to introduce the legend of this castle, my memory is getting weaker and weaker day by day and it's a pity that magic does not work on that. I have been tracking you since you came in. Ever since, this castle was cursed who ever has come here has never survived the ghosts so every one dies. Once you survive the ghosts then you need to solve the mystery of the castle before the next 13 o clock. So now it's your turn to solve it and I am here to help you with it". "Wait" Giselle spoke. "You mean that we need to break the curse, what the heck is that?" Robert agreed with Giselle.
          "But if you don't break it then you will have to survive the next 13 o clock too", Fiona tried her best to convince them. Now Robert had to agree. He was stressed out after the previous ghost attack. He could not handle another one. He agreed. Miserably Giselle also agreed, she had to help her brother.
          So they began. Fiona guided the way through mysterious hallways until they finally reached a huge room. "Well, this is the library, as you see, you need to pick out the book named, wait what was the name...... yup."The secrets of the castle", Fiona said. "Why, can't you tell us where the book is? Robert questioned. "Sadly, no. I only know the name of the book but not where it is. And you need to finish it fast before the next 13 o clock because we have a few more steps to do after this”, Fiona told them.
          As soon as Fiona said this, Robert and Giselle rushed around the whole room trying to find the one and only book. It took almost two hours before they could locate the book from a tricky corner of the library. Both were extremely tired when suddenly Robert shouted, "I found it, yes!!" and Giselle gave a sigh of relief. "Now what Fiona?"
          "Well, now you need to open up the book and read ............umm" Fiona grabbed a notebook out of nowhere. She flicked through the pages and finally said "Page number 30005." "Whoa. This book is like so big" Robert exclaimed with surprise.
          As they flicked through the pages Giselle wandered who had cursed the castle. But she didn't have time to think. Suddenly Robert called "Page number 30005, finally!!!” On the page a scroll was made. Inside the scroll in an ancient English handwriting a few words were written. They read:
"YOU SURVIVED THE GHOST ATTACK BUT BREAKING THE CURSE IS NOT EASY. YOU COMPLETED TWO STEPS BY FINDING THIS ANCIENT BOOK AND OPENING UP TO THIS ONLY PAGE BUT DO YOU THINK THAT THE NEXT STEP WILL BE EASY? SEARCH IN THE STUDY OF THE KING WHO RULED THIS PLACE ONCE UPON A TIME AND YOU WILL FIND THE KEY TO THE DOOR THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR FATE AT THE EXACT 13 O CLOCK TIME!!!!!
          Both Giselle and Robert looked at each other. This page looked so threatening after they had read, what it meant. A key in a study and the study of no one but the king. Would this be easy, the king would have kept tons and tons of files in there? One key was too difficult to find. They were stuck in their thoughts when suddenly Fiona called "It's 3 o clock in the afternoon guys". "What?" Robert was mesmerized. "But it can't be". "Robert. Look you spent one hour just sitting after the ghosts went. Then we spent one hour getting to the library because this castle had mysterious hallways which lead to mysterious places. Then you spent another hour wandering around this whole library followed by eleven hours finding the book. And well 30 minutes understanding the ancient writing and now 30 minutes staring at each other and in your own thoughts. Phew, thank god I wrote it all down. Or else bow would recover the record.” Fiona told them everything. Robert and Giselle stood with their mouths opened. They hadn't even noticed daylight through their search at the library. And now it was afternoon. Without wasting much time they asked Fiona to lead them to the study.
          Another one hour wandering around the passageways and finally to the study. Robert pushed open the huge door which sounded like a huge block of rusted iron being lifted. Inside everything was covered with spider webs. Robert and Giselle hurried around the study looking through files and drawers, through shelves and carpets, tables and photos but no sign of a single key. Then suddenly Giselle heard a creak in the floor over which she walked. She balanced on the very point and the same creak sounded. She bent down and felt the floor. It was somewhat raised. Then she lifted one wooden piece from the floor and out came a shining golden key. Giselle couldn't believe her eyes. As the sunlight shone on it light spread in each direction. Robert suddenly felt the light and turned to look at the magnificent key. He had never seen anything like that in his whole life.
          "Yes, we found the key; woo hoo, what's the time Fiona?" Giselle asked but all she heard was a faint snoring sound. Fiona was asleep. "Fiona" Robert shouted. Alarmed by the sound Fiona woke up. After listening to what the siblings had to say she told that it was 8 o' clock in the night. Just five hours remaining in the next devilish hour. Robert and Giselle knew what was next. They started walking around the huge castle trying to find the very door in which the key would fit. In particular it would be the very door which was locked because each door was open. Soon, they reached it. Robert fitted the key into the lock and turned it. A loud deafening creak sounded. And the door opened. The room was dark. Inside was a huge clock marked with 13 digits. The time showed 10 o clock. It had taken an extra hour to find the exact door. Fiona stood quiet. No one knew what to do. They walked into the huge room. Suddenly a golden panel appeared out of nowhere.
          It read “WELCOME! NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE SECRET OF THE CASTLE TO BE REVEALED AND THE CURSE TO BE BROKEN. THIS CASTLE WAS CURSED BY THE KING'S VERY OWN BROTHER WHO WAS ANGRY AT THE FACT THAT THE KING WAS RICHER THAN HE WAS. HE KILLED EVERY PERSON AND IN THE END CURSED THIS CASTLE. NOW THIS CASTLE HAS BEEN CURSED FOR OVER A 200 YEARS BUT SADLY NO ONE HAS SURVIVED THE DEVILISH HOUR. YOU DID AND NOW YOU NEED TO BREAK THE CURSE. A BLACK PANEL WILL APPEAR AT EXACTLY 13 O CLOCK. YOU NEED TO RECITE THE WORDS IN JUST ONE MINUTE AND BEHOLD, THE CURSE IS BROKEN. BUT ONLY ONE PERSON CAN DO THIS AND EVEN IF ONE WORD GOES WRONG, YOU WILL DIE.”
          Fiona was trembling with fear. Robert and Giselle stared at each other. Only one person. Till now they were a team. How could it be only one? Robert forced Giselle to go. She didn't get as nervous as him. She could do it. It was all decided. The time was 11 o clock.
         Just two hours were remaining. The two hours passed with fear. Giselle wandered if she could do it or not. And then suddenly a black panel came forward and the sound of the bell of 13 o clock echoed through the walls of the castle.
