The Magic Piano

By Corin Ballard, year 6, Vauvert School

I once lived in a cottage in a faraway forest, every day I walked into something new but today was different. Today there was this big clock tower, I had never seen a clock tower before. What was it doing there? "I’ll investigate after school," I thought. All day I was thinking about this clock tower. What was inside? Was it magical?

After school I raced to the clock tower like a cheetah. I was so excited! I started to pace around the clock tower, then suddenly I found this incredibly old secret door, I didn’t know what it was. I opened it. I was so nervous. Inside there were these windy stairs, I started to stroll up the stairs, having a glance at all the cogs as I walked past. "What is this?" I thought to myself. ”This clock doesn’t even work,” I said in a confused voice. I walked up the stairs a little bit more. Suddenly I found a second secret door…

What will this one have inside? I crept closer and closer. I opened the door. There was a black like the sky piano. What was it doing there? I looked around the room, a little room. There was nothing else there. The room was empty, bare. There were no more rooms in the clock tower so why was this one there, why did it have a piano in it? I walked closer and closer to the piano. I sat on the chair, it was a little dusty but you could still sit down on it. I opened the lid of the piano. All the notes were there but some of them had special stickers on. I played them then suddenly the clock started to work. This was pure magic.
