Toko Castle

"It's too good to be true" said Jessie biting an apple. "I wonder where we are going?", said young Jennifer. "We will ask mom"
'Shsss... Listen mom's talking to someone on the phone' said Jessie.
Just then there came a knock at the front door. "I'll go mom' said Jessie. She ran downstairs and opened the door. It was their Dad. Jessie hugged him. "Dad where are we going?" asked Jessie. Dad smiled at them and said "you both are going to Toko castle. Don't worry. It'll be fun". "Can we bring our friends?" asked Jennifer. "yes" said Dad. "I have arranged for Bess, Anne, Susie and Pamela to go with you". "Hurrah! For Dad" said Jessie.
So the next day they started. They bid farewell to everyone and got into a caravan in which they were going to live. Their science teacher, who was a funny man came with them to look after them. That night all the children sat round a campfire to decide what to do. "Let's go explore the castle" said Anne who was very brave. Everyone agreed. So they started climbing the castle stairs. On a board it was written 'Chawal Dance' with letters written in blood. They were a little afraid to go because 'chawal' meant death in some language. But still they went on. At last they came to the hall's entrance door on which was written 'CHAWAL DANCE' in very big letters. Slowly, they opened the door and Anne peeped inside. She suddenly stood still as if she was shot. There was a ghost on guard and she had long pointed teeth. The children were afraid but they forced themselves to go inside. They saw many swords and knives on the table and on the table was a board in which was written "ALL VISITORS SHOULD TAKE SWORDS". So they took the swords and walked on till they reached the stage. There they got the shock of their lives. On the stage was a vampire dancing with a huge bat. The vampire made a shrieking noise and soon the children were crowded by all the ghosts, vampires and so on. The leader of the group told them " we welcome strangers, I see you have taken a sword". "we h..." said Jenifer and Anne stopped her in time. No Jenny would not give the game away thought Jessie. The vampire leader gave another shrieking sound that must have meant attack because the evil group rushed towards them showing their long teeth. At once the children raised their swords, their hands trembling. First of all the leader fell to the ground dead. They were about to kill the others too but one ghost said that if the children didn't kill them they would go to another place. The children agreed, so slowly and sadly they took their bags and were about to leave of the castle when Jessie ran and stopped them. She called her friends and told them to pull each ghost's and vampires head, so when they did it what a surprise they got. They all were fake ghosts and vampires. Jessie told the children to not let them go, she quickly went to their science master and told him what happened. "so they are the men who pretend to be ghosts" said the master. He called the police and they came and caught the men. The inspector thanked the children. "Children, you all have had a shock. So we will go home tomorrow morning" said master. Now they are in bed, all sleeping peacefully. What a story they will have to tell their parents!
