1. Chapter One;

"Shh Charlie!" Mother hissed, "stop making so much noise with you marbles!"

I sighed and looked around. Mother was sat sipping tea from a small china cup, father was sitting at our wooden piano, playing Beethoven to be precise. Margaret was sat with her head stuck in a book.

"Hmmm.." Margaret mumbled, "this book was set in 1834 and it is now 1942. So long ago yet nothing has changed."

I turned around and carried on rolling my marbles across the floor. I lay and watched them rebound off the white stone wall until it got dark.
