The leaves rustled as the moon shone upon the path and all of a sudden, the trees shook with rage, fruit squealed and fell, the rocks beneath started rumbling. Thunder struck my garden and I immediately ran into my villa to my bedroom and, taking a long stride across the carpet I set out to close the window just before I saw with my blurred eyes a boy-he looked strong, muscular, young, tall(about six feet) with shabby hair; his eyes were emerald green-he looked at me with a patient yet a hard look. Terrified by the unanticipated appearance I shivered and fell down, just before he caught me and explained about, who he is and why did he need my help. My help? I was astonished by the fact that a small, frail, juvenile seventeen-year-old girl can help this powerful guy!
He pacified me and introduced himself. He said, “My name is Theo. I came here for your help, for finding a mystery door somewhere in your home so as to fulfill my duties for my sacred family.

They were all deciphered and were pointing towards a direction-my mom’s relic. Theo and I proceed towards the vase, it was covered with a code and there was a trapdoor. We clicked on a button and instantly we fell and landed on something hard and he said,” Thanks a ton for your help and this is where we part, sorry, goodbye!” With a quick flash of bright light which flickered on my face, I saw him placing a jewel and then he-disappeared.
I woke up screaming and as if I was teleported from the hidden place, I figured out that I was sitting on my comfy bed but I was confident that this account was not a dream as those golden things vanished and the piece of ruby(jewel) was stuck to my bracelet with a tiny inscription calligraphed-
