Merlin glanced up at the tower of terror, as he heard faint screams from inside.
He stood watching, with increasing worry as more screams of horror were heard from somewhere in the tower. Archimedes gulped at the look his wizard sent him, the idea gave him goose..well owl bumps.
(hah, love you esme ;D )
anyway, it were impossible to talk some sense in the wizard when he got that look, neither did Archimedes want to act like a whimpering coward either.. The owl clutched a bit harder on the top of Merlin`s hat where he was sitting at the moment, as they entered the darkness.
Merlin peeked into the dimlighted, apparently empty room. Hello, is anybody here? his voice echoed throughout the room.
It doesn`t seem, so replied the owl feeling his feathers shiver a bit. Mission accomplished.
Just then they heard a terrible howl piercing the air.
( yup a late start at the plot i spoke of in January. Merlin has lost his wand somewhere in Disneyland(where i don`t know yet) but he hasn`t realized yet. He`s gonna do soon, when he faces whatever is in this tower..)
