Chapter 3 The Book Of Mischief by Johnny

The waterfall was an incredible sight: it glistened and twinkled; mythical pool at the bottom held charming fish; and the caves at the side had vast, flickering torches.

“Is anyone there?” whispered Maddie. But all she heard was the splashing of the waterfall. She walked a bit more. The beautiful blackbirds of the different trees tweeted above her head.She thought she had stepped into a tense dream.

Maddie was searching for the treasure she drew in the book of mischief. There was no sign of a golden retriever. It felt wrong. Then she heard something…

Something in the cave was making peculiar sounds and footsteps. She peered round the oak tree and put her eyes on the cave. But all there was were the odd untouched torches. There was another little roar. It was repetitious now. But Maddie couldn’t spot any strange animal.

Then, she went inside. There was a frightening shadow behind the corner. Maddie couldn’t hesitate any longer. She sprinted as fast as she could back to the door.

But nothing was there. Except more hills and forest. Maddie startled. “Come back,” said a voice behind her.

Prologue- Chapter 1 The Sacrificed Emporium by Jess

Prologue- The Sacrificed Emporium

The Sacrificed Emporium has never had any visitors for as long as anyone can remember. It’s all due to the name.

Even when the crimson bricks lit up in the moonlight. Even when costumed people positioned themselves in front of it and acted like its great inside, just to help the man who owned it. Even when people stared at the heavy black door,  no-one entered. Everyone thought it was a dismal place that had no guests. Yes no guests, at least  not until Polly…

Chapter 1-  Entering Places

Polly’s friends had always told her that when she wasn’t doing her job, her curious ways could get her into trouble. She never listened to them though. Walking down Seaside Road  Polly noticed that for once the doors to The Sacrificed Emporium were open. Polly was a cautious person so she was unsure weather or not to go inside. Polly then remembered that it was her Grandmothers birthday next week and that she loved vintage furniture so she entered The Sacrificed Emporium for the fist time. Crimson curtains lined the windows and a golden eagle shaped lectern stood in the middle of the shop front whilst medals and marvels stood still like statues on the windowsills. Polly’s long, ginger pigtails blew in the breeze as she entered the place. Dust and furniture scents climbed her nose. Footsteps could be heard and then a tall man with dusty grey hair and lightning coloured eyes walked through a passageway all of a sudden: ”well you must be our customer, welcome to the shop!”                                                                                                                                                                        ”wow no-one’s ever been here before? I’m surprised at that, this place is great!” Polly replied with a huge smile across her face.                                                                         ”mmmm hmmmm, the very first, now this book is called the book of mystic secrets. Whatever i write turns into a room.”                                                                                   Polly gasped and stared at him in shock.

The lost Emporium Chapter 2 by Josh

The owner looked at Jack ” Welcome to the lost emporium,” sighed the owner, glaring at Jack. ” Can I look around; it’s beautiful,” replied Jack in utter surprise, hoping he could read the book.  “You can look around but never touch or even look at the book,” commanded the owner, his eyes gazing at Jack.

A moment later the owner walked into the velvet curtain leaving Jack all alone in a room. Jack’s eyes darted to the book. The pressure was onto him. He hoped that there was something that intrigued him even more than the book. The presence of the book and him was putting pressure on him.  Jack dashed to the curtain and checked that there weren’t anyone. Non. Jack went to the lectern.

He opened the book. Every page he flicked showed him something for an amazing world. These pages contained Cities, Towns, Ships, Villages and Volcanoes. Every one as wonderful as the others.

Jack had a pen in his and drew the space, a blood moon, a galaxy and at the side of the galaxy the thing he longed for the most.

The book drew a door with a number 1095. Jack tried to find that door. In a corridor there was cracked and crumbled doors. He finally found the door and opened it.

Jack stepped inside. He was standing on a tiny platform next to a spaceship. Stars roamed the space.  The galaxy that he drew appeared. A blood moon  lit up the space . He went inside the spaceship and drove to the galaxy.

The Vintage Emporium by Tessa

Prologue

There is a place downtown where no one ever goes. People forbid themselves to enter. That place is the Vintage Emporium. It sits in between a broken wall which had been destroyed.

To enter you had to pay a price. You could see lamps flickering through the stained glass window which made civilians worried. Nobody entered, It seemed to dismal to come in. Through the window dolls seemed to look like they were waving even though they weren’t. Suddenly Keisha fell in shock…

Chapter 1

Keisha was always very inquisitive. Her mother had told her that if she follows  someone just because they are suspicious would lead herself to trouble. One warm afternoon, Keisha walked down shoe road but then stumbled upon The Vintage Emporium.

Dust seemed to take place in the building, it was everywhere. There were small thuds coming from the ceiling as if someone was living up there. Red velvet curtains shimmered in the warm toned light. Keisha glanced at the books that laid on a dilapidated bookshelf. An aroma of freshly brewed tea flowed through the emporium. She walked through the dimly lit place uncomfortably since it felt like something or someone was watching her.

Something aught Keisha’s eye, it was a golden lectern decorated in precious jewels that glimmered in the light. On top sat a leather covered book. It was odd that just one single book was there. Keisha opened the book, it seemed like the words created pictures in her disorientated mind. “Hello there!” spoke a calm voice. “Would you like to take a look around?” Suddenly, Keisha fell in shock.

The Vintage Emporium Chapter 2 by Tessa

Slowly, Keisha got on her feet and made her way to the lectern.

“Excuse me but please do not look through that book.” muttered Stewart the Owner of the emporium.

“Oh I’m extremely sorry!” replied Keisha whilst gazing at all the wonderful,odd objects.

“No problem, just remember, do NOT touch that book at all.” Declared Stewart, staring at Keisha viciously.

A few moments later, Stewart vanished into thin air whilst his red cape wrapped around him, leaving Keisha alone. She got tempted to go to the book again but she remembered the words of Stewart. Keisha peeked round the velvet curtains just to see if anyone was there. Instead she saw a hallway with tons of weird doors.

Walking back to the book, Keisha flicked through the coffee colored pages. She saw an old cottage and round trees with ponds that contained goldfish, the images seemed to be alive.

Suddenly, she picked up a pen that was decorated with fake flowers. Keisha drew old cottages in a line that were surrounded by round trees with a purple waterfall falling from a rocky hill and then she drew something that was very important to her.

Then the book clenched on her hands and dragged her through the gloomy hallway. After a few moments, she stood upon a door. It looked like it had just appeared…

Keisha entered the door, a ray of sunlight shone into her eyes making her a bit blind. There stood a line of old wooden cottages. Round shaped trees surrounded the entrances. A purple waterfall fell from a rocky hill filling all the narrow spaces,turning them to puddles. It was quite confusing because it looked exactly like the drawing she made in Stewart’s book. A small stone path appeared, and without thinking she followed the path.

The Shadowkeep Emporium by James

This was where Dennis’ mischief came in, Nedworth had left the room so he decided to dramatically walk over to the book. He stopped at the lectern and flipped the pages.”I told you not to touch the book.”whispered Nedworth.”YEEK!”screamed Dennis,Jumping out of his skin.”I knew you couldn’t resist, so I stayed.”said Nedworth, sternly.”B-but, you just left!”exclaimed Dennis, shaking.”that was a copy of me.” Said Nedworth,smirking.

Nedworth left the room. This time, he was sure of it. The urge to touch the  book and open its frowned upon pages got bigger. The urge got bigger and bigger until he could not bear it. So Dennis slipped towards the lion skin book.

He opened the book and immediately came confronted with drawings of fantasy places, including houses, villages and quaint little Hamlets.

As soon as Dennis knew what was going on, there was a pen in his hand and he was drawing a tropical rainforest full of tree dwellings and small masked villagers. And in the centre of the rainforest he drew the best thing he could imagine.

Suddenly, vines shot through the curtain and grabbed hold of him and pulled him into a corridor and stopped just before an Ivory door, decorated with leaves and wood.The vines pointed to the door and said “hundoo” which means “in here.”

Dennis opened the door and saw a Jungle and in front of him lay a huge village filled with tree dwellings all connected by many bridges and he saw small masked people. So without looking, without thinking, he shot towards the Jungle village.
