Story: Mystery of castle

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Few knew about the castle hidden inside the island and no one knew about my plan.

On one sunny morning, leaving a letter for my family, I went on an adventure.

The emerald green island was surrounded by a blue sea. On getting closer, I stepped out of my boat and tried to hear the gushing of waves.

It was all very calm.

Searching for sometime, I finally found the castle. It was a sure sign of grandeur and I was busy in observing it when I noticed something was written on its wall.

It read

Welcome, I’m amazed at your bravery!

In no time sky changed its color. I felt a strange sensation and the next moment I realized my mistake…

Closing the novel, I felt my hands were wet . My heart was beating profusely and I was sure that scientists were right.

Reading the novel had improved the function of my brain and very successfully I started to put myself into the body of book’s protagonist.

  1. Hi Madeeha,
    I know Yinglan. Thank you for coming to my site today (still Tuesday in CA). I’m glad you liked my post about having a popular blog.
    As far as your post goes, I teach about castles since I teach medieval history. Nice meeting you.

  2. I recently read an article somewhere or other about how the brain activates in the same manner when we read, watch or hear about things as when we actually do them. I found it a fascinating idea. A great story, Madeeha. 🙂

      I was actually reading about “how to keep your mind active” in Reader’s digest. The article ‘stay brainy’ consists lots of points. I like this point and the prompt inspires me to write about it 🙂
