The Cupboard – Creative Writing
It was a regular spring morning when I thought it would be a good day to do some shopping. It was a nightmare to get to Watford. The Driver thought it was the 142 to Brent Cross. I got off the bus and as it was already two o’ clock, it was too late to go to Watford. So I walked back to the bus stop. I must have been distracted because I went up a completely different road. I went into one of the estates to see if anyone could show me the way back to the bus stop. There was a group of boys which I tried to avoid as I carried on walking. Then I realised there was an information cabin.
I started to walk faster and faster until eventually I was running. When I reached the cabin, there was no one at the window. I looked around to see if it had closed down or had an away sign. But there was nothing. The only thing that was written was ‘cupboard’. It was strange but I had no idea why it was there. As I could not think of anything else to do, I walked into the cabin. It seemed like I had just woken up from a dream. I felt like I was lying on clouds. I sat up to see that I was not in an information cabin, but a whole new world. Something you would see in a fairy tale.

I knew it was not a story. It was real. I was not scared as there was nothing to be scared of. There were little people running around, acting like nothing had happened. Then I definitely knew I was not in West Hendon anymore. No one in Hendon is this happy, and it is certainly was no this clean and colourful there either. I went to see if I could find someone to ask for help. Everyone I had asked to me ‘you come from the land with the magical cupboard’. Then I remembered that the cabin had cupboard written at the top. I was thinking that I was going crazy.
These people were strange, but at a whole new level. So I continued to walk. I came to a magnificent building. It was bright blue with angels coming out of the side. I was quite excited to find somewhere that seemed to be normal, and not just say ‘you came from the land with the magical cupboard’. I quickly walked up the path and I had noticed something lying on the grass. I walked nearer, curious to see what it was. I was disappointed when I saw it was another little person. I picked up a stick and poked it to see if it was alive. It did not move.
So I poked it again. It jumped up. I screamed, and it screamed. She explained to me who she was. Her name was Dorothy Perkins. She had an incredibly squeaky voice, which was extremely irritating. ‘Do not be alarmed’, she said. ‘I am not like one of the other people, I am normal’. I found this a little hard to believe as she was skipping and jumping around. I had no other choice, so I followed her up to the building. We entered the building, which turned out to be a castle. Then Dorothy started to run, and so did I. faster and faster but I had no idea why.
I was trying to keep as calm as possible, but running this fast could only mean that we were running away from someone. I looked around and everything was blue, with diamonds and gold. I saw Dorothy trying to open one of the doors. It was quite funny as she was small and the door handle was high up. So I went to help her. We both peeked through the door. At the end of the room was the largest throne I had ever seen. It was incrusted with diamonds and blue gems. Sitting on the throne was a lady with a white silk dress and white shoes. She was the Queen of the North West.
She saw us looking through the door; I started to panic and froze as she walked towards us. Dorothy hid behind my leg. The queen came nearer and nearer. I closed the door and ran up the steep and narrow stairs, with Dorothy still clinging to my trousers. I reached the top and looked over the banister. The queen looked furious and was shouting at a disturbing way to one of her guards. She had left, and so had the guard. I walked back down the stairs to see if I could hide as the guard was blocking the exit. I saw a door next to the end of the stairs and I went into the room.
It was dark, clod and had a terrible smell. I continued to walk deeper into the room. ‘Wow, I had never noticed this before. It is so bright and beautiful’. I turned to see what Dorothy was looking at. To my surprise it looked exactly like the information cabin I went into. It lit up the whole room. The queen stormed in. I froze once again. Surprisingly, she did not see me. She walked directly to one of the tables and, took off her face. I quickly hid behind a large statue. I looked down at Dorothy. ‘Did I forget to tell you?
The queen is actually really ugly; she just wears the mask for her to look beautiful’. I thought deeply for I moment. I could not think why she would wear a mask. But then it hit me. The diamonds; if she did not have the mask. She would not have the diamonds. I did not know what had inspired me to do what I had done. Something in my head just urged me to do it. I hugged Dorothy and said goodbye. Then as quickly as I possibly could, leaped out from behind the statue, grabbed the mask, and ran into the cabin. The next thing I noticed, I was back in my attic and it was filled with diamonds.
