The old castle had been built in about 1500 A.D. by the seaside. It was a little worn and tired looking but it was still comfortable on the inside and the Franklin Family were happy to call it home.
The Franklins had bought the castle about 20 years earlier and they had spent enough money to make the rooms brighter and cleaner. It was a large castle that sometimes made strange noises at night. It could take 5 minutes to walk from one side of the castle to the other.
Often, the Franklin children would play “Catch” throughout the many rooms and hallways. Their happy shrieks would fill the old castle with the sounds of young life.
