Brother Who Gets to the Bottom of It

Themes: Curiosity | Resolve

My two older brothers fell asleep but I did not. I stayed awake through the night, and I saw the hawk that has been breaking through the church window. I shot it in the wing. It fell right here, and under this great stone an abyss has opened up.

I wonder what is down there. There is only one way to find out. My brothers help me by lowering a rope with a light on one end, and I go down with it. The torch light falls on dirty, grey stone walls. When I reach the bottom, the cavern opens. I walk a little ways and come into a meadow where green trees are growing and exquisite flowers are blooming.

In the middle of the meadow stands a huge stone castle with an iron gate. The gate is wide open. What is in there, I wonder?. There is only one way to find out.
