Jes : The Castle

I was standing on cobblestone, in the middle of what appeard to be a road, between two shops, and people walked around me. It's a normal day right? Wrong. All the people were . . . weird! They seemed different. The first time I'd seen people in hours and I didn't want to talk to any of them, and I was so lonely.

I looked up into the sky, but a shadow caught my eye. It was a huge building sticking far above everything else.

"What's that?" I thought aloud.

"That's the Queen's Palace, that is. Yupp, yupp. It is! That's the Queen's Palace! Anyhing else Miss?" I stared at the man who had helped me.

"Uh, no thank you," I walked forwards, feeling very out of place in my shorts and baggy T-Shirt. Everyone was in nice clothing, and I was in jogging clothing. At least I wasn't sweaty anymore, that would've just made everything worse.

After about half an hour of walking, stopping and asking for directions and walking some more, I finally came ot the castle. If I'd received a letter from the Queen, then I was supposed to go to the Queen, was I not? There were no gates around the castle, and I could've easily walked up to what I assumd was the front door, so I did.

Banging on the door, I bellowed.

"Hello!?" No answer. I started making my way around the castle. It was very grand. Balcony's and bright flowers. It was beautiful! I heard someone yelling above me, but when I looked up, no one was there. I was almost at the back of the Castle now, and I could see an open door.

"Yes!" I ran to it and slipped inside the beautiful castle. "Wow,"

"Stop," I heard someone say behind me. I whipped around and there was a guy standing there, a sword in his hand.


"Don't. Move." I raised my hands and stared at him. "What do you want?"

"Well, I got this letter when I got here, and I don't know where that is, but I received a letter from . . ." I peered at the bottom of the letter, "Queen Alli?" His eyes widened and he lowered his sword, walking towards me and grabbing the letter. "So, what does that mean?"

"Come with me," he said, quickly walking away. I didn't care where I was going, as long as it wasn't the dungeon. Please, don't be the dungeon!

The End
