Long ago in a small village lived a family by the name of Kashmiris. They had a daughter called Zubab, who was 10 years old. As she grew up, the Kashmiris decided to leave the village so that there daughter can go to a better school. They wanted her to have a good life when she grew up and that could only be possible if she had a good education. But before they left, they hide some treasure in the house. A few years later, the villagers started to hear strange voices from there house and thought that it had become haunted since it was abandoned by Kashmiris. It so happened that a brother and sister came to that village for their summer vacation. Adil was 13 and his sister Ayesha was nine and they were staying at their grandmother's house. One day, they both went to buy some fruits and heard people talking about the haunted house. They asked some villagers about the location and the villagers told them about rumors of hidden treasure inside the house, but warned them not to go near the house as it was considered to be haunted. But Adil and Ayesha decided to visit that house at night. They wanted to see which one of two was the braver one and who could find the treasure. They decided that the treasure would belong to whoever found it first. When they arrived at the gate, they were both a bit scared, but then Ayesha had an idea that she wanted to play a game of rock, paper, scissors and the loser would have to enter first. Adil lost the game and had to enter the house first. Ayesha was right behind him, but when they entered the door, it suddenly closed because of wind. They thought that it was a ghost and they screamed and ran forward, but they came to a hallway which led to two different paths. Here, they decided to go separate ways. They were really scared but they promised to each that they will not cry and moved forward with confidence. A strong wind was blowing outside and the owl hooted. After a little walk, they both came to the same place and were relieved to see each other again. They started to move forward and now arrived in the TV lounge. Here they saw many pairs of red eyes on the roof. As they moved, the eyes moved too and they got even more scared. As the curtain blew due to the wind coming in from an open window, they realized that the eyes were just bats sitting on the roof. As they walked a few more steps, they came to a room in the centre of each lay a chest. This must be the treasure box, they thought. Just as they were going to open it, the room lit up with bright lights. They could see the police arriving with the villagers breaking in through the backdoor. They were shouting to ask them if they were okay. They both answered that they were okay. Apparently, a watchman had seen the kids enter the house and had raised that alarm, worried for their safety. Soon afterwards the treasure box was opened, which was filled with some silver and lots of coins.The police said that they will find the owner of this house so it could be given to them. Every one praised Adil and Ayesha for being courageous to enter the house by themselves, but the policeman scolded them for making everyone worried about them.

This is such a cute story with a fun premise. It could be turned into a children's play, I think. Thanks for writing and sharing. :)
