KATIE McCORY AND THE DAGGER OF TRUTH ~
The Grumpy Guide
As everyone stared, transfixed on the chest, the latch turned. The lid slowly creaked upward until the chest stood fully opened.
Katie looked frantically around the attic. There had to be something made out of iron up here. There was just about anything you could imagine in this attic, and right now things you never would have. Keeping one eye warily on the chest, she scanned the room and spotted something silver under a pile of clothes. She slowly worked her way towards it. As she grabbed the object, a large hairy brown hand grabbed the side of the beautiful chest.
Katie held her breath. What on earth was that?
Maybe something bad had killed their guide and replaced him. The object in her hand was heavy. Surely, it was made out of iron. Maybe they had a chance after all.
