Narrative Piece

This is my narrative for the week. We got to write a narrative about whatever we wanted. I did mine about 2 curious people who get trapped in a cursed pyramid, and have to find a way out. I really enjoyed writing this piece and I hope you enjoy it to. 


As me and Robert get out of the car to see the pyramids. I could see something glowing in the distance. I tapped on Robert’s shoulder and pointed at the glowing light. As we were both walking towards the glowing light, I pulled Robert aside and asked him “are you sure you want to go see what it is?” He nodded back.

We had finally gotten to where the glowing light was coming from. The only problem was that we had to dig in the sand. Obviously I wasn’t going to dig up whatever was there, so I kindly asked Robert. As Robert was digging up the glowing light, I could see that it was a gem. After about 5 minutes of digging Robert finally pulled the gem out. Although we had the gem, we knew that something was about to happen. 

I could feel that something was pulling me. As I looked over to my right I could see that Robert was getting pulled as well. It took a good 10 minutes until we finally got to our destination. Which was a pyramid. Though I looked to my right and Robert was gone. I could hear that he was going into a different room than me.

As the door shut behind me, I started to see all these numbers and 1 lock. I tried multiple times to try and get out, but the door wouldn’t budge at all. So since the door didn’t budge I just started to yell, just to see if Robert could hear me. It only took about 3 minutes, and I started to hear Robert’s voice. I shouted out to him “ Robert can you check out if you have any clues there”. Robert yelled back “ Yeah”. I told him to read out the clue since I had numbers in here. 

The first clue he read out was “I have a ring, but no fingers”. I instantly thought of a phone. I looked around at the numbers and realised that the amount of numbers in the word was 1 of the numbers for the lock. So I put in 5 for the first number. Though I still had 3 more to unlock the lock. The second clue he read out said “ I am a bank, but not a bank with money”. Now this one tripped me out because the only type of bank I knew was a money bank. Then all of a sudden Robert yelled out “ I think it’s a blood bank”. I looked around for the number 5 and what you know there was a 5. Now I thought the last clue was confusing, but this one took the cake. I yelled out to Robert to say the clue. The clue was what flys, but has no wings. It took a solid 10 minutes for me and Robert to get it, but the answer was time. Finally we were on our last clue. Which was easier than I thought. It was “what has 88 keys?” Me and Robert both knew it was a piano. 

I put in the last number and a box opened up. It had a key and I noticed that the key matched the lock on my door. I quickly opened my door and rushed to Robert. I opened up his door and we ran to the exit. As me and Robert were just about to step out, we noticed that there was something blocking us from stepping to the outside world. 

All of a sudden a random voice started speaking. It said “To be able to get out of this pyramid you must complete an extremely hard task. However if you don’t complete it in 30 minutes you both will be stuck here FOREVER!” Then a scroll dropped from the above. Robert started reading the scroll with our task. Our task was to restore the gem we found that brought us here and put it in the heart of the pharaoh. At first it didn’t seem hard, but then we both realised that we had no idea where the gem was and where the pharaoh was. So Robert decided to go look for the pharaoh, while I looked for the gem.

Running down all these hallways looking for a gem was not easy at all. I actually gave up hope because we had 20 minutes on the clock. Then I remember that the gem had a glowing light, and in the distance at the very end I could see something like that. I rushed over, just to see that it was guarded with traps. By this point we only had 15 minute’s left. Soon after I was joined by Robert. We were planning something out to see how to get the gem. 

That is when I noticed we had to throw something directly to the target to be able to get the gem. Without a doubt me and Robert both took off our shoes and threw them right at the target. Luckily we hit the target and arrows were flying in all directions. Which also meant we could get the gem. I dashed over to the gem and bolted into Robert’s direction. We had 10 minutes on the clock. Soon after we reached the pharaoh’s chamber. Now the only thing to do was to place the gem in its heart. 

The moment we placed the gem in the pharaoh’s heart we thought we were in the clear, but then an alarm went off. Robert and I had only 2 minutes to get to the exit while the pyramid was filling up with sand very quickly. Me and Robert raced to the exit, but I slipped and fell behind. I know that this was the end of me. So I yelled out to Robert to keep on going. He was so close to getting out, but he then turned around and bolted to me and picked me up. There was about 20 seconds left and me and Robert had to dig our way out. I could see the sun shining and there I was. Standing outside of the pyramid alongside Robert. At that point of time we didn’t even bother looking back and went back to the hotel we were at.
