Millie and Cavan sprinted into the room. Millie stopped so suddenly that Cavan ran into her.
‘Don’t just stop!’ cried Cavan, glancing over his shoulder to see if they were still being pursued. The eggy smell and ominous sound of bagpipes was still behind him. They weren’t safe yet.
He followed Millie’s gaze back into the room and realized why they had stopped.
‘Wow. That’s... weird.’
The room was clinically white and formed a perfect hemisphere. There were no other corridors branching away. It was a dead end - sort of.
Two doors stood in the centre of the room; bolt upright with nothing behind them. One painted deep blue, the other red. The paint was so fresh that flecks covered the pristine white floor. Both kids knew that the doors were not ordinary - they led somewhere else.
‘Pick a door!’ said Cavan. The discordant noise grew louder and the smell now reminded him of the kid with the bad hygiene in his math class.
‘Which one?’ said Millie, determined not to make the same mistake that had got them in trouble.
‘I don’t know!’
Millie closed her eyes and concentrated.
This time, she had to get it right.

Under pressure and being pursued by the sound of the bagpipes, which seemed to be getting closer to her, Millie had to choose the right door. As curious as she was she hesitantly reached out for the painted deep blue door knob and was paralysed with fear as to what would be behind the door.

As the door opened, Cavan and Millie were both in a state of shock, as they were welcomed by a anonymous creature. (This was not known in the world of Cavan and Millie) Cavan was frozen to the spot thinking the unimaginable scenario as Millie approached the creature. The creature was a half horse half human centaur with very broad shoulders completed with an axe and a spear for hunting down prey. Cavan was struck dumb as the centaur bowed at Millie and Cavan’s presence.

There was an awkward silence.........

With a sudden jolt, the centaur’s face sunk into his head, and an elderly woman’s features slowly started to appear. Her arms and legs started to form the characteristics of a frail human. The old lady’s eyes flashed red, and Millie and Cavan started to realise what was going on and began to run away. Millie and Cavan did not get far as the old woman pointed her walking stick and a bright green light flashed out from top of her diamond staff. They fell to the ground with a thud and the old woman dragged them with her gnarled, bony hands to her secret underground lair. There was a drastic change in their surroundings as they suddenly found themselves in a dark, dingy cave. As they reached the entrance to her home, Millie and Cavan spotted a low, brown table, in the centre of her room. On the table were two crystal goblets with a strange pink liquid inside. The old woman started to speak and she said, “One goblet contains immortality and the other contains death to whoever drinks it. Choose wisely...”

“What if we refuse?” Cavan said. “What if we don’t want to drink it?”
The old woman’s eyes glowed red with anger. “You will drink it, or you will face the Crimson Tower.” She cackled, baring her mouldy green teeth.
“What is the Crimson Tower, anyway? Some dank room with a few bin bags and poison spikes?” Millie spoke up. The witch grinned, showing her gruesome teeth.
“So you think facing the seven challenges, including slaying the Black Worm and completing Centaur’s Challenge is easy? We shall see…”

"So are you up to it?" The old woman glared at them as her eyes darkened with mischief. They glanced at each other as if they had no choice but to go to the Crimson Tower and face their 7 challenges! " I guess we're up to it" Cavan murmured whilst squeezing Millie's hand tightly. By now the light was appearing, punching through the small gaps in the boarded up windows.
The old woman sluggishly led the children up to a cob-webby staircase.
"Go up these stairs these lead to the Tower" The woman hobbled off leaving them in the eerie darkness.
The children climbed up the steep wooden stairs and came to a jarred door. The air was misty and stuffy, it was silent apart from the odd sound of a rat scurrying across the creaky floorboards.
"I guess this is it then" Millie said through gritted teeth........

Millie and Cavan slowly turned to each other. " I wish we hadn't come now!" whispered
Cavan. Their sweat trickled down their feared faces as Millie placed her hand on
the cold and rusty door knob. She turned it. The door opened with a creak. The atmosphere
was dejecting and lugubrious. The stench that had been sealed in for a thousand years
crept quickly past their noses.
Millie gasped as she stumbled across the room onto a skeleton that had been covered
in a blanket of dust.
"AAHHHHHH!" screamed Millie. There were rats scurrying across the wooden floor and there were
bats flying around.
There was a door at the end of the treacherous room.
which was getting louder each time." "IM COMING!"

Then suddenly……… some one was approaching from a distance and it was getting closer and closer and each time it got closer its footsteps got louder. Millie and Cavan were trembling in fear as they saw the most horrifying creature they have seen in their entire lives it was about eight feet tall, size12 feet, bold hair and a type of a greenish body.
The creature bellowed in a loud voice “who are you and what are you doing up here”
Millie and Cavan mumbled “we are here for the seven challenges as we were told to come up to the crimson tower by an old woman”
The creature quietly said “you may pass”
They gulped and swiftly went upstairs to the crimson tower by the time they got up there they saw the old woman waiting for them. First it was the centaur challenge they were transferred to another dimension there was quick flash and without notice the centaur appeared and Millie had been transformed into a dragon slayer with phenomenal powers and Cavan had transformed into a dragon lord with tremendous powers. They were fighting for their lives as it was Millie (the dragon slayer) and Cavan (the dragon lord) vs. the centaur who would win?………

Cavan and Millie, startled by their new armour, realised centaurs plan of charge. Millie broadening her sword automatically dives at the centaur. Feeling adrenalin and ecstasy rising in her body, and her cared for life slowly disappearing.
The centaur dodges her swings his axe at her, throwing her to the floor. Cavan angered the four legged freak spouts words that seem familiar yet never heard of till this windswept day. A blue flash appears from her hand, the next she knew that the centaur was dead. Millie annoyingly brushing dirt off her armour saying “About time smarty pants!”

Both girls pulled out their swords and began to charge.. Millie and Cavan's eyes gleamed with fear. Millie's eyes turned red and Cavan's eyes turned green.. They both were ready to begin this challenge. Cavan, the dragon lord, sent out a secret signal to other dragons. Then suddenly dragons were coming out in every shape, size and color. Then Cavan
shouted,"Attack!" Next, the dragons attacked the centaur. Sharp claws began to appear on the centaur's finger tips. He began to slash the dragons away. The Centaur got closer and closer to Millie and Cavan. He slashed both Millie and Cavan. They both fell into a deep sleep and never woke up again.
