Blast to the Past
By: Emily Lane
It was one of the craziest things I have ever experienced in my life. To this day, I'm not even sure how it happened. You see, it all started when I was sitting in my room watching a T.V show called Reign. It is based on Mary Queen of Scots and her romance with King Francis in 1557. The show was getting intense, so I paused it and went and got a snack. When I opened my pantry the room started spinning and I was pushed inside. When it all stopped I opened my eyes and I was in a castle.
The castle looked just like the castle in Reign. It was like the castles you see in fairy tails. I was in a room with a canopy bed and everything in it was placed strategically. I began to freak out. I wasn't sure if I was dreaming because everything felt so real. I heard people talking outside the doors, the voices got closer and closer until Mary herself along with her four ladies were in the same room as me. Every one of them looked puzzled. I didn't know what to say or how to even say it. Aside from being clueless, I glanced at their clothing. Five of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen in my life. They were as if they were made from pure gold. Each of their hair was fixed perfectly and they all stood straight up like a statue. I pulled my shoulders back and smiled. It was the best I could do considering I was wearing jeans and a tee shirt. It was like comparing hot to cold, no where close to being the same. Mary began to speak to me and asked me who I was and how I got there. Her ladies asked if they should call for the guards. Mary explained to them how I looked innocent and that no guards shall figure me out. For hours we talked about how on earth I got there, and they were shocked at the fact that they have a show based on them. I didn't want to tell them to much about the future because well that would involve their deaths. One of her ladies began to tell me about a dance that was going to be in the castle later on that night. All five of them insisted that I go.
The six of us arrived at the dance. We walked down a staircase that wasn't like any other staircase I have seen. The stairs were spiral and it took a while to reach the bottom. Everyone at the bottom awaited for us to get there. There were so many people it was like being in Times Square on New Years Eve. The room was open and tall, it was as big as two average houses. I couldn't help but to feel nervous, part of me wanted to be home and safe even though that life was amazing. Their were many princes surrounding the room. Everyone was radiating beauty. I smiled as everyone stared. We danced, laughed and had the time of our lives for hours. When 12:00 midnight came everyone left like it was a ritual. Somehow I had gotten separated from Mary and her ladies and I began to panic. I ran up the stairs and tried my hardest to remember where her room was. There were rooms everywhere, to the left and right of me, in front and behind me. I felt like I was in a maze trying to find my way out. To the left of me I saw a guard and he pulled out his sword. I started running. The castle felt as if it were getting larger by the minute. I ran for so long like I was in a race competing for my life, until I saw a plant, and I remembered that in Reign behind all plants there was a secret place in the wall. I knew Reign was just a show but it was worth a shot. I moved the plant, which was extremely heavy, and pushed on the wall until it opened. I got inside and slammed it shut. It was dark and cold in the wall. I felt as if I were in a dungeon. I started to think about how I could escape, but before I could do anything the room started to spin again and before I knew it I was back in my room.
I know the story sounds crazy but it happened. I'm glad I came back, that life was amazing but mine is even better.
