THE MYSTERY OF THE HOUSE

‘I can’t play with hens in the garden, and I can’t go to the forest,’ says Paul. ‘It’s boring today.’

Paul is a boy with dark hair, blue eyes and a nice smile.

He is on holiday at his grandparents’ house. Paul likes coming here every summer. But today he is bored. He looks out of the window. It is raining and it’s cold outside.

The house is old but very nice. It has a lot of rooms. Paul can go all over the house, but there is one room where he can’t go in. The door of the room is locked.

‘I’m bored,’ says Paul.

‘I can tell you a story,’ says his grandma.

‘OK,’ Paul answers.

‘So listen ….

Two children, Tom and his sister Milly come to their uncle Henry’s house for some time. They don’t want to stay there. But their parents move to a new house where there aren’t any beds.

When the children come to Uncle Henry’s gate, he opens the door. The man is old and he has got white hair and big eyebrows.

 ‘You’re late,’ he says. ‘Come in.’

‘Sorry,’ says Tom. Im Tom. How do you do?’

The old man looks angry.

And Im Milly,says Milly. Your house is very big.

It is,’ says Uncle Henry. You can explore, but there is one room where you cant go.

They walk along a corridor and see a living room with beautiful sofas, and pictures on the walls.

Then they come to a door.

‘This is the music room,’ says Uncle Henry. There is a sign on the door. It says ‘Do Not Enter.

 

‘In your house there is also one room where I can’t go,’ says Paul. ‘But there isn’t a sign on the door  ‘Do Not Enter’.

Grandma smiles and says, ‘Keep listening.’

 

‘Why cant we go in there?‘ asks Milly. ‘I can play the piano, and I love music.

Uncle Henry shakes his head. I cant tell you. But never open this door!

What a strange man,’ Tom says when they are in their bedroom. ‘Why cant we go into the music room?‘ (…)

Later, when they are having dinner in the dining room, Uncle Henry is very quiet.

Then he says, ‘Theres a full moon tonight.

He gets up and looks out the window. Lock your bedroom door,’ he says, ‘and dont open it.

And the children go to their bedroom.

I dont understand,’ Milly says to Tom. Why does Uncle Henry look at the moon? Why cant we go into the music room? It‘s a mystery.’

Tom isnt listening. Hes reading a book.

I want to explore,Tom says suddenly.

We cant!says Milly.

At midnight Milly wakes up. It’s dark in the bedroom and she can hear a noise.

‘Tom, Tom, get up!’ she says. ‘There’s a strange noise.’

Tom goes to the door and listens. You‘re right,’ he says to Milly. ‘I can hear someone singing.’

Let’s see.He opens the door.

No!‘ Milly says. There‘s a full moon. We cant go out.

You can stay here, but I want to see who’s singing at midnight.

Tom opens the door and they run into the corridor.

‘Someone is singing in the music room,’ says Milly.

‘Youre right,’ says Tom. It‘s a man and hes singing a song about the sea.’

‘It’s beautiful,’ says Milly. Is it Uncle Henry?’

Tom isn’t listening. He opens the door of the music room and goes in.

‘Don’t, Tom!’ says Milly. ‘We cant go into the music room!’

The music room is very big and Milly is afraid.

Tom turns on the light and the singing stops. In the room there’s a piano and there are lots of pictures on the wall. One picture is very big. There’s a ship and a man with long black hair and a black hat. He is a pirate.

The children look at the picture and they can see that the sea is moving.

Tom and Milly are afraid, but they cant move. The pirate looks at them and  smiles. Suddenly he comes out of the picture and into the music room. The man is all white.

He’s a ghost,shouts Milly. Tom, let‘s go.‘ (…)

The pirate is near the door so they cant go.

‘Who’s in my music room?the pirate shouts. ‘This is my room!

‘Youre right,‘ says Tom. This is your music room and we‘re going to bed.’

The pirate shakes his head. ‘Oh no youre not! Sit down. Im going to tell you my story.

My name is William Bones, but everyone calls me Billy,says the pirate.

The ·year. is 1793. My men and I sail the seven seas in my ship’ The Pearl. We fight pirate ships and we sing songs about the sea. We are very happy because we have lots of treasure.’

‘Then one day I help an old woman and she paints a picture of my ship. This picture’s magic,” she tells me. “Before you die, put it in a house near the sea. When you die and the moon is full, your ghost can sail your ship for one night.

Then the old woman looks at me and she says, “Pirate Billy Bones, remember that the picture must be near the sea.‘”

Now it‘s 1850,’ Billy says. ‘When Im old, I die in my house by the sea. The old woman is right. When the moon is fuIl, my ghost can sail my ship for one night.

But then in 1910 someone brings the picture here to Manor Hall,’ the pirate says. This house isnt near the sea, so I can’t sail my ship. When the moon is full, I sing songs about the sea, and the people in the house are afraid. They are afraid of the ghost. They put my picture in the music room and lock the door.

Suddenly the door of the music room opens.

Uncle Henry stands there. He looks at Billy Bones and then at Tom and Milly.

‘Oh dear,’ he says. ‘Now you know about the mystery!

Now I must tell you my story,’ says Uncle Henry.

The year is 1976. I buy this house from an old man. He tells me about the picture and the ghost in the music room. Im afraid of ghosts and I dont go into the music room. I lock the door.

Every month when there is a full moon, I hear a pirate singing songs about the sea,‘ says Uncle Henry.I know that he is unhappy and I know that he wants to go back to the sea. But Im afraid and I cant help him.

I know!says Tom. ‘Our new house is in a beautiful place near the sea,’ he says. From my bedroom I can hear the seagulls and the waves. Come with us. We can put your picture in the breakfast room where you can see the sea.’

Uncle Henry begins to smile.

How wonderful,’ says Billy Bones.

lm happy that you want to go with Tom and Milly,says Uncle Henry. ‘You can go, but you must be quiet. You must sing quietly in their new house.

‘All right,‘ says Billy Bones. ‘Are you afraid of ghosts now, Henry?’

Henry smiIes. No, Im not, BiIly.’ (…)

The next day Milly and Tom’s mum comes. The children run out of the house.

‘Mum, we have something from Uncle Henry,‘ says Milly. lts for the new house.’

Mum Iooks at the picture. ‘A ship and a handsome pirate ... how lovely,‘ says Mum.

Tom and Milly say goodbye to Uncle Henry. They take the picture to their new house by the sea. Pirate Billy Bones stands on his ship and he looks at his new home. He can hear seagulls and he quietly sings a song about the sea.

One day when there is a full moon . . . his ship disappears.

 

‘This is the end of the story,’ says grandma.

‘Very exciting,’ Paul answers.

Suddenly the door of the room opens and grandpa stands there. ‘There’s a full moon tonight,’ he says.

Paul feels excited.

At midnight the boy wakes up. He can hear a noise from the kitchen. He opens the door and he can see …. a cat playing with mice.

Paul smiles and looks around. There is a big kitchen table, and on the table there is a key. Paul takes the key and goes to the locked room. He opens the door…. But there’s no pirate, no pictures, no singing. There’s just a huge mess.

‘Each house has its own mystery,’ thinks Paul and goes back to bed.
