Lewington Witches


3. Two

Tilly lead us through the winding passageways and twisting stairwells, I found myself wondering how anyone can find their way around this place. She brought us to a door at the end of a long hallway on the fourth floor.

“She’s right through there girls”, Tilly stated. We opened up the door and walked through to an old fashioned bedroom and a woman stood there waiting for us. “Lizzy, you’re here!”, the woman exclaimed and she embraced my mother. Then she turned to look at me. “Evangeline is that really you, you’ve grown so much!”, she said, hugging me as well.  “Well little Angel, you’re mother and I have some things to discuss, I’ll have Tilly show you to your bedchamber”, “Tilly”, she called. I shot a quizzical look towards my mom and she shrugged.

“Yes Madame?”, Tilly replied, poking her head through the door.

“Please show Evangeline to her room.” she told her.

“The Crawford room?”, Tilly asked.

“No, the Farrow room” my grandmother replied. I followed The maid through the door and out the corridor. She then took me to the next floor, across the hall, and through the library. Then she stopped in front of a bookcase in the very back and took a key out of her pocket and shoved a book aside to reveal a small, barely visible keyhole. Tilly inserted the key into the lock and the bookcase swung open, and started to ascend the spiral staircase hidden behind it.

“Well come on then, don’t dawdle”, Tilly said, turning around to stare pointedly at me. I climbed the stairs. At the top she opened the door and started back down the stars.

“Dinner is at six, holler if you need me”, she turned around and left me alone. I decided to look around the room and see if there was anything interesting. It contained a four poster bed and a white vanity cabinet. There was a dresser in the corner and the walls were lined with bookshelves. The most intriguing part of the room was the ceiling, it was designed to look like the night sky, each little star perfectly painted. It actually reminded me a lot of the room from The Secret of Moonacre. There was only one window, a small, pane of glass hidden behind a long flowing tapestry. From there I could see the entire grounds of the Lewington Estate. I was about to turn around and go back to checking out the room, when something caught my eye. In the distance there was an old stone gateway that blended into the brick wall marking the end of the property.

“Time for dinner, dear”, Tilly announced, sticking her head through the door. I followed her down to the dining hall, I definitely had some questions, and I wasn’t going to stop till I had some answers.
