please don't make fun of me...
The carriage pulled up to the
“Are you prepared to journey into this stunning structure my dearest Diana?” Amelia’s voice questioned from the seat across from her own. Diana glanced up at her friend with an excited smile that matched Amelia’s and nodded eagerly. William chuckled at the two love-struck women for he could not see the wonder of the castle, and was greeted with a glare from his sister.
“All right, let’s get on with it, shall we?” he exclaimed as he jumped out of the carriage and helped the women out.
They walked around the castle, marveling at the stone and gardens that surrounded them. Continuing inside, Diana imagined what must happen within these walls when they were occupied.
“Go on ahead precious Amelia and William, for I wish to walk on my own a little while.” Diana pleaded with her friends. They obliged and continued on ahead. Diana carried on in walking through the castle and then headed to the gardens surrounding her. The clouds above showed signs of storm, but Diana was not worried -- she was sure they would get out in time before the rain commenced. She continued walking the gardens when she noticed a glimmer in the distance. Curiosity arose within her and she went to go search out the shining object.
What she found was a disappointment for it was simply a small glass teacup. However, the disappointment did not last long for she observed that the cup was sitting on what seemed to be a grave stone. Gently blowing away the dirt, she read aloud what was written: “My Dearest Susanne, May Peace Be with You” Diana was touched by the intimacy of this gravestone and she sat contemplating who Susanne could be when she began feeling raindrops.
“Oh dear!” She cried as she ran back to the castle, attempting to avoid the drops of rain but was unsuccessful. It wasn’t until she slipped in a small puddle and fell that she noticed she was still carrying the small tea cup.
“Oh I must return this darling cup to poor Susanne” thought Diana. And so she struggled her way back to the gravestone. By the time she arrived at the grave, night had arrived and the storm seemed to be getting stronger. The flashes of lighting lit her pathway back to the castle.
It was quite a while before Diana realized she had been going the wrong way but she was simply too exhausted to continue on, so she sat in the mud and wept. It was then that she saw a glimmer of light through the woods.
“Oh! I hope they are kind-hearted” exclaimed Diana as she began walking again. As she reached the small cottage however, she saw figures through the window and felt her heart seize within her. She was certain these beings would be either murderers or robbers but continued on anyways for the thrill of adventure clasped her in its grip. Knocking softly at the wooden door, Diana held her breath as she heard footsteps approaching.
