Example text

It -45- was very narrow and full of cobwebs and it smelled funny, kind of damp and moldy. I think it ran behind the wooden paneling of the landing, as it had really scratchy wooden walls. Although it was narrow, it was quite high and easy to walk along, even though I had to keep pushing really thick cobwebs out of the way. It’s a good thing I don’t mind spiders, as there were dozens of those. Really fat ones. I wasn’t scared. Not really. After all, I was still in my house, wasn’t I? But it was a bit odd when the passage suddenly ended at a wooden platform.

I shone my -46- flashlight all around, but it wasn’t much help. When I looked more closely, I could see that the platform had sides, a bit like a packing case, and there were ropes running up and down on either side. It reminded me of something, but I couldn’t think what. And then I could! It was a dumbwaiter. No, I am not being rude about some poor old waiter—a dumbwaiter is a kind of elevator. I knew that because there used to be one just like it in the first-kitchen-on-the-rightjust-past-the-laundry-room, and that is what Aunt Tabby used to call it.

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 am a pretty good -36- shot, but I have to admit that not all the pieces got through the door the first time. I started to put Sir Horace back together and, while I was working out which arm went where, I thought about my Plans for the afternoon. I thought that maybe I would try the Molasses on the Doorknob with the Invisible Tripwire Plan, although it might need the Slimebucket Surprise, too, just to make sure.
