Ahoy mateys! Welcome back to another Piece Of Cake with The Pawsome Lion. We are carrying on from the last Piece Of Cake called ‘The Box in the Window’. Read part 2 of the story below to find out what happens next. Happy reading! 😉
“The Box in the Window-Part 2”
All of a sudden, there was a bright, dazzling flash that blinded everyone. Then, dark shadows were swimming out of the box and into the room. An ear-piercing shriek made Elizabeth wince. After that, all the chaos stopped abruptly. Everyone was slumped on the floor. Elizabeth’s head was throbbing.
“What happened?” she asked.
“I’m not sure.” replied her mother.
The shopkeeper butted in, “I’ll tell you what happened.”
Both girls turned round and gazed at the shopkeeper. It was clear that they were interested in what he had to say.
“You have released a dangerous djinn that was resting in that very box.”
He pointed at the box which Elizabeth had opened.
“What do you mean?” questioned Elizabeth.
“A few years ago,” continued the shopkeeper, ignoring what Elizabeth had to say, “I found a strange box hidden in the storeroom. I took it to the till to see what it had inside it. At the same time, an old man wearing a dark red turban, almost a maroon type colour with gold patterns engraved on it came walking into the shop. Then he said, ‘My name is Aditi and I am from a secret service called The Lashkars of Sulayman. You have found the last djinn named Acantha. It is my job to make sure that none of the djinns escape from their miniature jails. In that case, do not ever open up the box and keep it safe.’ Then he left without giving anymore warnings or information.”
Elizabeth and her mother looked confused. They scratched their heads. All of this was too much to take in. ‘A djinn?’ thought Elizabeth, ‘Who would keep a djinn in a jewellery shop?’ For Elizabeth, it seemed weird and unrealistic. This couldn’t be happening.
“Ahh, I forgot one more thing. Come and follow me, the man left me a small, golden blade. I think you might find it interesting.” said the shopkeeper.
Elizabeth and her mother followed the shopkeeper into a tiny room.
