This is the adventures of Tom and Ruby, find out what happends when they discover the mysterious room

The adventure begins

It was moving day at the Smith household, Mum and Dad had decided a while back that a new life in the country was for them, 13 year old Tom was helping with his sister Ruby to pack the last of the things before they set off.

“I wonder if we will have any adventures in our new house?” asked Ruby. She was a typical 6 year old tomboy, always looking for excitement and adventures.
“Well it’s an old large house” said Tom “with lots of rooms, maybe we will find a secret passage or a hidden door somewhere?” Ruby clapped her hands with glee.

“Oh I do hope so Tom, I have just been reading a book about Pirates that used an old house to hide their treasure“
“Well not much chance of that Ruby its 10 miles from the coast,” he laughed “and I think the days of Pirates is long gone”
“We might find something that’s been hidden for years and years after all, the entire house is over 200 year old “said Ruby.
Packing all done, the two of them bundle themselves into the back of the car.

The journey begins

“Hold on tight then children” said Daddy “Off to a new life”
“And a whole new load of adventures, look Tom” said Ruby “I’ve found this pirate flag, and I have my sword aunty Mary bought me last birthday, I will be ready if we do meet any pirates”
Tom laughed “Ho ho ho” he roared “you can be the captain Ruby, and I will be your second-in-command”
“Yes and we can find some treasure and bury it in the garden, or maybe the new house will have a lake with an island on it, then we could row out to the island and bury the treasure there”
“Slow down Ruby” said Tom “your just getting carried away now, let’s just wait and see what the new house holds”

The new home

Daddy gave Mummy a smile and said “Those kids and their imagination”
It wasn’t long before they arrived “You two kids go and explore while Mummy and I get all this stuff into the house”
“And make sure you get back no later than six “said Mummy” in time for tea.” Tom pulled Ruby’s pigtails and said “Come on slow slowcoach, let’s go explore” Tom and Ruby spent a good hour exploring the gardens and surrounding grounds they found an old summer house and had decided to make that their headquarters, Tom hoisted the pirate flag, "now everyone will know this is our headquarters," He said

Exploring the new house

“Come on Ruby we have better get back and after tea we can investigate the house”
After tea the two children asked if they could go and explore the house.
Mummy smiled and said “Of course you can “
So off they wen,t there were countless corridors and it seemed endless rooms, in the beginning Tom would count each one as he opened one door and then the next but after a short while he soon lost count.

He ran along each of the long corridors opening and closing doors and shouting “Look Ruby, another one, another empty one” when suddenly on opening yet another door he stopped and just stood there his mouth dropped open.
