I was walking down the street, listening to music when I saw a old little shop that was almost cabin like. It was just drawing me in so I thought a little look wont hurt. As I walked up to it, I felt as if someone where watching so before I can turn the handle I look to see if anyone was there but saw no one and walked in. It was empty except for a table with nothing on it but dust. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move so I turned my head so fast that i`m lucky I didn't get whiplash. When I saw that there was nothing there, I turned back around to find a note on the table that had not been there before. The note said 'TURN AROUND' . I did as the note told me hoping to find the source of all this non-sens. I heard a creek of the floor board behind me and turned around, again, lucky not to have whiplash. On the table was a normal looking skeleton key and another note that said 'KEEP IT SAFE'. Scared, I left with the key in my hand.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~the next day~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I had put the key on a chain around my neck. I walked to school and met up with Shannon and told her the story.
"That seems freaky, but why would you go in a place where you don't know whats in it?" she asked.
"Because i`m just that smart." I replied, thinking over my actions.
"Idiot." she stated.
"Thank you very much for your kind words." I said sarcastically.
"You`re welcome!" she said back as the bell rang for first. As I walked in, I saw Gary, Feliciana and Andrea.
"Whats with the key?" Gary asked me.
"I`ll tell you later." I replied.
"But I want to know now!" Gary whined.
"Gary, be quiet!" Ms.Bullers said as Feliciana, Andrea and I. Soon after, the bell rang and the whole day was returned to its normal antics. After school, I took Feliciana and Shannon to the place where the shop was.
"I swear it was around here." I told them.
"Lets just go to your house, Amaris." Shannon said.
"Fine." I said slightly sadden for not finding it. As a joke when we got to my house, we decided to put the skeleton key in the key-hole instead. Surprisingly, it fit. I slowly turned the key and suddenly, my door changed into one of a 200+ year old house.
"What...?" I said, confused.
"Creepy, but i`m getting cold." Feliciana said as she opened the door. We did not expect what was on the other side. We got sucked in and when we opened out eyes, we saw something out of a fairy-tale. It was my house, but at the same time, not. everything was made out of wood and the lights were candles, the TV was gone, along with all technology. When I went to see what else changed, I found that it looks like no one has lived here for years. I scrambled to the back door to see if we were still in Tuscon, but greeted with a thick forest and a wolf by the porch that looked as if she was waiting for someone. When I looked into Its eyes, I instantly knew that it shared the same soul as my dog, Harley. It was only then did I realize that the key was in my hand and that I wasn't wearing what I wore when I got 'home'.
"Maybe we should look around some before we try and go back home." Shannon said and Feliciana nodded.
"Ok, but can we come back here after we find out how to get back?" I asked. This place gave me the same feeling as the shop did, except I felt as if I belonged here, like this was my home.
"Fine, it does seem to draw me in." Feliciana said.
"Feels as if we belong here....When did we change clothes?" Shannon asked. She was wearing a faded royal blue thigh-high tunic with light tan pants and brown knee-high boots, same with me and Feliciana except Feliciana had a blood red tunic and her hair was down, unlike Shannon`s loose pony-tail, I had a dark green tunic and a braid on the front right of my hair with a dark green ribbon in it as to Shannon`s which was the thing holing up her hair while Feliciana`s was wrapped around her left leg.
"When we got 'here', but I feel as if we`re three of the Links from 'Four Swords Adventures'." I stated mono-toned. 'Harley' had warmed up to us and I swore I heard "Harley has now joined your party!" followed by music.
"Well we should get weapons before we go find a town. There was some in the house." Feliciana said. I ended up getting a short sword with a bow and arrows. Shannon got daggers and a short sword as well. Feliciana got twin blades. The weapons ended up coming in handy as we came across loads of different creature.
