FC: The Place Inside The Closet By: Zoha Babar
1: I dedicate this book to my little brother.
2: There was a little girl, and her name was Annie. Her parents always worried about her because they knew that she was very stubborn. Almost everyday after school, Annie came home with a note that described her behavior in the classroom. So one day Annie went to the local book store.
3: When Annie arrived at the book store, she found a spell book. It was called '' The Magic Spell Book.'' She got the book and ran home. Annie, showed her mom the book and her mom said, '' You can't use any spell in this book, you never know, something can happen.'' Annie ignored her mom and went up to her bedroom.
4: Annie was up in her room all day, she hadn't done anything but read that spell book. It was 9:00, Annie's parents walked in to her room and told her it was time for bed. She got ready for bed, and the last thing she did was read a spell to open a portal. Annie was an adventurous girl, so in her mind anything was possible.
5: After those life-changing 2 minutes, Annie went to bed. She stayed awake for a few minutes, thinking the spell would work right away. Finally, she fell asleep.
6: Annie woke up to a weird noise. She turned to see that the spell book was floating in the air, and there was a light coming through her closet. | She got off her bed and ran to her closet. There, she saw a tunnel. She was surprised that the spell book actually worked. So she walked through the tunnel. She walked, and walked.
8: Finally, she reached the end of the tunnel. Next thing she knew was that she was in a haunted maze. All she thought about was being home, and not getting the spell book. She sat down and started to cry just when she saw a shadow.
9: She started to run as fast as she could. She became very tired and sat down. The shadow wasn't behind her anymore. After a little bit, she started to wander around, hoping to find someone or something that could help her. As she was walking she saw a tower popping out from behind the trees. She kept walking and as she got closer, she saw that it was a castle.
11: She thought that there might be someone inside that could help her get back home, but inside there was an evil sorcerer. Annie didn't know about that, so she went inside. It was dark, and the only things you heard were wolves howling outside of the castle on the other side. There was an old man sitting on a throne. Annie walked up to him and asked if there was any way out of this world, back to where she lived. '' There's only one way out.'' said the sorcerer.
12: The sorcerer gave Annie a scroll, which told her exactly what to do if she wanted to get home. Annie was supposed to find a necklace that had a red stone with it. If she found that, she would be free to go home.
13: As Annie was walking, she saw something shining in the moonlight. She walked over to it and it was the necklace.
15: She went over to grab it, but suddenly skeletons started to come out of the ground. Annie was terrified, and the skeletons were coming her way. She ran and got a big stick that she saw on the ground, When she gave it a closer look, she noticed it was a cane. So she took it and started to break the skeletons apart, after all they were only bones.
17: She finally got hold of the necklace and started to dash back to the castle so she could get home quicker. She finally arrived at the castle. She went inside and gave the necklace to the sorcerer. She asked if he could open the portal so she could go home, but he ignored her. He started saying a spell from the same book that Annie had.
18: She tried to read the translation of the spell which was in such small font, but she knew what she read, and she knew what was going on. The sorcerer was trying to take over everyone. He wanted to gain control. So Annie quickly took the spell book away, and started saying the spell to open the portal, but she couldn't because, what if the sorcerer went through the portal with her?
19: The only thing that Annie could do was destroy everything and then go back home. She did what she had to. Everything was gone, there was nothing but dust. The sorcerer was gone too. Now all she had to do was go home.
21: Annie walked, and walked. It took her longer than usual to walk through the tunnel. Maybe it was because she was tired from all of the events that had happened.
22: She kept walking until she saw her closet doors. She was so happy to see her room, it let her know that she was finally home. She saw the spell book on her bed, where it landed after floating so high in the air. She took it and threw it in the trash.
24: Annie sat down on her bed and thought about what had happened. She knew that she should've listened to her parents. Annie knew that next time if her parents told her not to do something, then she should listen, because it was for her good.
25: Annie fell asleep, and heard her mom say that it was time for her to wake up because it was time to get ready for school.
26: So she woke up, and she knew what happened last night, because it was only a dream.
27: The End
