The Not So Secret Attic

Sort by

They slowly crept upstairs, there they found the door marked “the secret attic”. They both took a deep breath and opened the door, when they got in all they saw were boxes and boxes. “I don’t see what’s so secret in here” Misha said that’s when a map rolled to their feet. The map had a spot with an “x” on it. They grabbed the map and raced downstairs but they couldn’t find Aunt Zoya anywhere so without asking they went outside and followed the map till the “x”. First they had to climb a big wall,then walk through a dark & eerie forest.They were scared but they were eager to find out what was at the “x .When they got out, they saw a big table decorated with streamers, balloons and their favourite cake.They were puzzled.Suddenly everyone jumped out and yelled “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”. Misha and Ollie were so engaged in finding what might be at the “x”, That they forgot it was their birthday. So they enjoyed the party. And that’s the story of The Not So Secret Attic. THE END

As they walked,they began talking.”Did you notice Aunt Zoya seemed kinda happy?” Misha asked Ollie.”Yeah, it must be an awesome surprise! “ Ollie replied eagerly.They continued walking until they found the door they were looking for. They opened the door, and found… “Oh, great!” Ollie grumbled. We walk up a billion flights of stairs and all we find is a bunch of dumb paintings!” He began walking down the stairs, but Misha was staring at one particular painting.”Ollie, look!” Misha finally cried. “It’s grandma and grandpa!”“Don’t be ridic-“ Ollie stopped talking and stared at the painting.”Holy Moly! It IS grandma and grandpa!”They were in the painting. Misha found a button, and pushed it. “HI, kids!” Grandma’s cheery voice came out of the painting.”How you doin, kiddos!”Grandma’s voice said. Amazed, Misha said, “ How’d you get in there?” Oh, we jumped in!”Grandpa replied. As they talked, the painting seemed to move. “You can visit us any time!” And so, over the vacation, they did.

and opened the door with the words secret attic, it revealed a some stairs that headed up. They took the stairs and found a room with a couch, a bathroom and a bed alond with a chest. Misha and Ollie were very curious, so they opened the chest and saw a folded piece of paper along with a bunch of toys. When they unfolded the paper it said:Go to the far right of this room there is a staircase, go down. Since the chest was on the far right of the room they walked across the attic the indeed find a staircase leading down into a well lit room. That also had a couch, a bed, a bathroom and instead of a chest there was a window showing a fantastic view of the lake beside the cottage. The light from the setting sun cast a its beautiful shine on the lake. It looked spectacular. When the sibling noticed another piece of paper that was folded paper and read:These are your rooms please pick one. Misha got the one with the window and Ollie got the other. Their stay was quite enjoyable.

I think they already went up in the attic without permission. And they saw something very creepy up in the attic, like an alien and then the alien zapped them with a ray gun. And the zap made them listen very well. And not understand anything that clearly. And it took a while for them to respond. And it also made them sit like statues. And it also made them hesitate. And it made them scared of the attic. And it makes them act like aliens.

The two siblings climbed slowly up the wobbling ladder leading to the attic. Ollie, who was leading the little procession, was clutching a flashlight. “Anything could be up there!” Misha whispered with a frightened trembling voice.
Ollie put a finger to his lips, then opened the heavy wooden door, which was laden with a heavy, knitted pale blue blanket with an intricate styled pattern. Misha and Ollie peeped into the dimly-lighted room, due to the unfortunate clouded sky and stared in dumbfounded silence. Before them stood a circular low-set coffee table. In the very center of the table stood a dainty-looking vase proudly carrying violets of the most colours that could possibly be natural for a violet to carry. The four walls were coated thickly with royal blue and deep purple tapistry’s
outlined with bright red, turquoise, and soft pink threads. Printed in the middle and around it were roses, violets, and daisies embroidered into the delicate tapestries….

Till they reached the Attic. When they climbed into the attic they found jars and jars of twinkling stars. With great joy the children let out a few and tried to catch them again, but the biggest star flew away and became the North star. The North star guided many sailor and travelers in the right direction and every night the children would look up at the North star and say good night. The end
