The Quest…..

Part – 1

She was traveling back to her grandmother’s mansion after many years, since her grandmother’s death. It was situated in the countryside, away from the city hustle and bustle. Jo as very tense from the past few weeks, her mother was ill and due to her business, she was not able to take care of her, for which she always felt guilty. And for a few past months, the condition of her mother was getting more severe. One of her friends suggested her to admit her mother in the care facility so that she could get better treatment and care. She admitted her but still confused and feeling regretful.

Her own daughter, Joey, was also lacking her attention, and always remain sad. To have a change and to calm her mind, She decided to spend some time at her grandma’s home in the countryside, by nature. She along with her daughter, and friend, were going there. She was thinking, all this, while driving the car when finally, she saw her grandma’s home.

She opened the door and many memories flashed in front of her. As the house was closed for years, she started organizing it and cleaning it and asked her friend to go and buy some groceries from near town. While cleaning, she got the diary of her mother and along with it, found one key, but she did not know, what this key was for? She kept it aside and prepared dinner.

After dinner when everybody went to sleep, she was still thinking about her mother, her life, everything going on, and also reminiscing her past days here when suddenly, she remembered, she found her mother’s diary and got up to read it. Make herself a coffee and sat in the study. Like her, her mother also used to maintain the dairy, and she had written everything, she was reading it when she heard some voice from the attic and went to see how was there but did not find anyone, thinking it might be because of wind, she went to sleep.

The next day, when she was preparing breakfast, her daughter noticed a small wound in her hand, but she did not remember when she got it. After seeing this, she was sure, she had seen, similar wound, on her mother’s hand too. But why she got that wound similar one like her mother? She was thinking about it when someone knocked on the door, her neighbor, her mother’s friend and after seeing that wound, she run away. Jo was shocked to see this, and wondering what happened?

She again heard similar voices from the attic and while going there, discovered, the walls are hollow and there was a secret passage, from there to somewhere, but to where?
