One day, in rainy and stormy night, all family members went to a party except Sandy. She chose to stay at home. She enjoyed her leisure time by reading a book in her lovely bed. Out of the blue, the light turned off and the storm was getting louder. Sandy got up and tried to find a candle. Then, somebody vaguely knocked their front door. The knocking becomes louder and louder. Sandy tried to reach the door. When she opened the door, she found a big black box in front of the door but nobody was there. She came to box and sat on there. Suddenly, someone grabbed her left shoulder from back side. She got shocked but she knew that man, he’s her neighbor.
Without saying anything, the man opened the box and held Sandy’s hand entered the box. Surprisingly, there was a tunnel inside the black box. It was very dark. But, they walked through the tunnel and finally found a light. At the end of the tunnel, it was so bright and fresh. Then, they realized that they were in the middle of the forest. At there, there was a tree house with opened door. The man still held her hand and tried to reach the house. However, there was a pond in front of them. In the edge of the pond, a white tiger bustled around. Sandy and the man wanted to across the pond but they were afraid of that ruthless animal. Yet, they still tried to reach another side of the pond.
Magically, when they come close, the wild tiger became tame. Without fear, they went in a rush, jumped into the pond and walked till reach the edge. They were happy at first because a white horse has been waiting for them at the edge. But, when they were close to the edge, a poisonous snake crawled. Sandy was very afraid but the man pulled out his sword and started battling with the snake. He still held Sandy’s right hand and tried to come near to the edge. Finally, he could murder the snake and hold the horse.
Out of the blue, the white horse ran away. Sandy and the man were shocked but they knew it was because a giant animal named Tyrex came nearer. Sandy and the man also ran away, they were hunted by Tyrex. The man felt delightful when he saw a cave. So, he tried to run fast. Almost reaching the cave, Sandy fell and fainted. The man carried her into the cave.
Sandy heard that somebody has knocked her house’s door. When she opened her eyes, she was in her bed and saw a black box in her room. She thought that she has a bad dream but she still curious why the black box was there. She decided to open the door and she felt happy because it was her family. Like usual, Sandy told her dream to her family. The situation was calm and delightful again at the time.
