The Mystery Mansion

It was a dark and stormy night. A girl named Haldrissa was running home. She ran through the rain as a cold breeze shifted around her. She was drenched (in rain), but if she tried to wipe it off it just appeared again. Before she knew it, she stumbled upon a house. Not a house actually, but a mansion…the mansion looks old. She knocked on the door. No one answered. She walked inside. The door was unlocked but why? Haldrissa took off her completely drenched coat, and saw that the mansion was deserted. She did not know why, but she had an urge to yell out “Hello?”. The door was unlocked, strangely, and everything was covered in dust. She was also oddly tired. She walked up stairs where she found two bedrooms. She went into the first one. It had a lovely king sized bed. She lay down as her eyes closed more and more…. Suddenly, she heard a scream coming from down stairs. Her eyes widened. What was going on?! She hurried down stairs, to see a boy screaming as something pulled him into one of the wardrobes. She rushed to help him, but she was too late. He had already been locked in the wardrobe. She ran over to the wardrobe and tried to open it, but it was locked. She saw a sword, now desperately trying to help the boy, and took it off a rack. Surprisingly, the wardrobe suddenly moved to the right. It had revealed a secret passage! She went into the secret passage and found an armoury. She saw swords, battleaxe and armour to the max there was another door. As she walked through it, she heard another scream from behind another door. “The little boy!” Haldrissa managed to gasp. She went through the tunnel, to find green stuff everywhere. It was sticky. She saw a giant spider wrapping a little boy up with silk. Before thinking, she charged forward, holding a sword in hand. She thrusted at the beast, dodged and ran with the boy in hand as she charged after it.
Harry thought deeply. He thought that somebody actually heard his screams, but to his surprise a 10 year old wielding a sword was chasing after the spider. He thought how heavy it must be. The giant spider had stopped wrapping him when she appeared. He was half covered with webs, but that would change soon. Oh yes, so soon. The boy struggled, screaming and writhing as the 10 year old girl charged forward. The spider hissed as the boy struggled. He watched, wide-eyed, as the girl stuck the sword into the spider’s heart. The spider shrieked, collapsing on its eight legs. Though after its death a strong breeze came in, pushing them back to the start of the tunnel, then it disappeared. The girl put down the sword slowly, as it was heavy, and she wasn’t used to it. “Hi there” he heard her whisper. He replied “Uhhh… Hi.” As the girl unwrapped the webs from him with the sword acting as a knife to cut the webs, he grew oddly tired. He wanted to go into a bed somewhere to rest, as his day has been tiring. He gasped out, “Thank you,” and they began to rush out of the tunnel. They got out of the tunnel and the wardrobe slid back into place. They heard weird noises, like someone that was past there time, they saw glowing beings: ghosts! Both of the children shrieked but the ghosts said, “No need to be afraid, we are the ghosts of this mansion. You have freed us by killing the beast that has remanned here for centuries, until now, and for that we grant you the powers of Gaia.”
“The powers of Gaia? What do they do?” Haldrissa blurted out. “Oh, and thank you.” She added. They replied “Gaia is the Greek Goddess of the Earth you will be granted to speak with her, whenever you wish, with this magic mirror, and the powers of mirror are of healing. As for the boy, you get granted (we grant you) the powers of Hercules with strength and bravery.”
Haldrissa was shocked. Does this mean she has the power of earth at her side? As if to correct herself, her mind rumbled, “no, but Gaia does. And if you ask her, then she will use her powers for you. And she may if you are in danger.” She thought to herself, “but I’ve always been wanting to be a warrior”… As she was deep in thought, the boy said “Hey! We should find if any other things are cursing this place! Some ghosts may still be trapped!” Stunned, she replied quietly “True, true. I’ll hurry, then” She rushed around, more tired than ever. Her muscles were tense, and her mind was scattered. If there was only a time to sleep! She accidentally stepped on a old pressure plate, and they heard something opened up stairs. She and the boy ran upstairs quickly, only to find the bedroom had disappeared… and with it a new cave appeared! The cave looked slimy and dark, but they continued on. There was a sudden breeze as they turned around. As slime dripped on them, they saw some kind of yeti like beast drooling all over them with cold hands clutching them. They shrieked and ran as the beast ran after them they see that the cave keeps on going. Haldrissa suddenly stopped. She dropped her sword and shrieked as the yeti grabbed her by her leg, holding her upside down. With her free leg she kicked as hard as she could. The yeti shrieked and put one hand on his nose. His eyes flared with rage and anger. Suddenly, a big rock started floating, and it launched itself over at the yeti. The yeti gaped. The boy clung onto the yeti, and gulped. Harry slapped the yeti and said “No Ruphus, naughty, she’s a friend” The girl just stared. She didn’t have much to do. The boy said “What?” and then directed his attention back to the beast saying, “let her down, there’s a good boy”. As the beast let Haldrissa down, “Errrr… Do you know this thing?” she asked bluntly. She went to pet it, but in her mind she was growling at it. He said “HIS, name is Ruphus. I found him in the dumpster near this haunted mansion.” She replied “Okaaay”, and then rushed out of the cave with Harry and Ruphus. “Oh I’m sorry, I haven’t introduced myself yet.” She suddenly whispered. She then said “I’m Haldrissa, what’s your name?”
“My name is Harry”. They continued, and Haldrissa got her now-dried coat. She put it on, and said farewell, because she was absolutely exhausted and she was done with staying here. Harry also left. They were done there. Haldrissa ran home, rushed into her room, and slept immediately after she got on the bed, having dreams about her journey.
