wiggling the key through the whole. i found myself making a loud raket. at first i thought i had opened the door until my uncle walks in starring at me as if he has seen a ghost. as fast as i could i jolted back through the doorpalcing the rope back around my neck.when i got back, i found jonathan awake holding a golden box that weemed to be locked."can i see that old key?"
"it wont fit, it goes in a door," i mummbled as i handed my little brother the key. i wathced him place the key in the whole and slowly turn it. as soon as i saw the lid pop up, i ran to see what was inside.
