The Curse of Gandleton

A myth submitted to the site by Jorja Fairclough

Skinner Street School, United KIngdom

On Tuesday 24th January 2013 there was a mysterious casket out in Skinner Street’s Junior playground. This highly decorated sarcophagus has been known to make sudden appearances at the most immature of times. Children from outside of the school often ask “Who put that there ?” or, “Where did that come from ?” The more experienced children exchanged knowing looks, and said nothing.

This is how it all began.

Team Gandhi had entranced into the school when we saw it.
It was a casket.
We all gathered around this strange artifact in a buzz of excitement.
A babble of confused questions bounced throughout the corridor. After the fuss of the discovery in the corridor, Gandhi filed into the classroom and got settled for their next lesson. They sat comfortably and listened to what Mr.Angus had to say about the mummy.

Suddenly a dark shadow ran across the window.
Then the quietness of the classroom stopped as everyone started to panic, the phone rang. Gandhi started to talk about how to get rid of the mummy.
"What if we put a curse on the mummy !" exclaimed Marc. "What are you talking about ?" said Charlie J with a confused look on his face.
"I mean what if we put some hieroglyphics on the sarcophagus that could say something like, if you open this casket world wide, beware there is a curse inside," Marc said couragously "Then when the mummy wants its case back and opens it and it will have a curse on it."Jorja says enthusiastically "Exactly" said Marc
"But only one thing, we don't know how to hieroglyphics" said Charlie A
"Hey! What about that hieroglyphics book over there." said the all smart Connor
A face with red eyes showed up from the distance. Nervously, the children in Gandhi bit their nails down to their skin.
"Ok!," shouted Marc "What are we going to do about this madness?" questioned Marc.
The fire alarm went off .
Immediately, everyone went back to their classes.
