#12 Rain, Rain Go Away
On a cold, rainy day last winter, a young man named John decided to go exploring in his grandma’s ceramics room. She hadn’t been able to use the room for crafts in many years, so it was understandably quite messy! Still, he got busy trying to clean up the space and learn a bit more about his grandma’s favorite hobbies.
#11 The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
In the back of the room, he saw an old closet. He cautiously approached, half expecting to find a collection of his grandma’s pottery pieces. He knew she had been quite the potter in her young age, so he figured she had to keep her work somewhere. That WAS NOT what he found, though. What was inside this mysterious closet? Keep reading to find out…
#10 What’s Grandma Hiding?
Well, there was absolutely nothing inside the closet. Or so he thought! Upon closer inspection, he realized that the bottom floor of the closet was holding a locked metal box. He tried to open it, and even asked his grandma if she knew the code, but she reported that she had never seen the box before!
#9 Put Some Muscle Into It
Because he didn’t have a way to open the box, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Using a hammer and a crowbar, he forcibly opened it. As soon as he got this ancient safe cracked enough to get inside, he recognized a mysterious (and creepy) message on the outside of the box…
#8 A Spooky Message
This etching, taken from the lid of the box, reads “Abandon All — Regret Ye Who Enter Here.” That would definitely be a spooky message to receive when you’re trying to break inside an abandoned safe! Still, he kept going. At this point, he was too curious about what was inside the box to turn back now!
