But just to make sure, I added a bit more to the sign: -35- This HORRIBLE HAUNTED House NOT Is — for Sale I dumped Sir Horace’s helmet on the floor in my Saturday bedroom—which is my favorite, as you can only get to it by climbing up a rope ladder and then squeezing through a small door, which keeps Aunt Tabby out. The trouble was, the rest of Sir Horace still lay all over the floor of my Thursday bedroom, so it took forever to bring all the pieces down the corridor and then throw them up through the door.
I could tell it was a very old door, as it had big iron hinges across it and looked as though it had come out of a castle or something. But I couldn’t see a handle and, when I pushed it, it wouldn’t move. Stupid door. I gave it a really big push, I even kicked it, but nothing happened. It just wouldn’t budge. ” I didn’t really believe the key would fit, as it was so small compared with the door, but when I looked carefully I saw a small brass -49- keyhole, just like the one on the door to the secret passage.
That was really scary. I set off down the ladder, which was quite difficult, as I could only hold on to it with one hand since I had my flashlight in the other hand—and the ball of string in my teeth. I don’t like the taste of string. The other thing I didn’t like very much was the way the air was getting hotter and hotter. I remembered about how it gets hotter as you get near the center of the earth, and the more I climbed down the ladder, the more I wondered if I was getting too close to that bit in the middle where all the rocks melt.
