Just then, the sun started to set. Adam and Belle gathered the blanket and the basket and headed back to the castle. When they opened the front door, the castle seemed strangely quiet. Usually, they would hear the noises of the servants doing their chores. But this time, it was very quiet. Adam saw the door to the ballroom open; he walked up the stairs and into the ballroom. Inside the ballroom, all the servants were in there looking very scared. The only person missing was Belle’s father, Maurice; everyone else was counted for. While Belle was putting the dirty picnic dishes in the kitchen sink, she head a yell or and shout of pain from Adam. She quickly went into the ballroom, her jaw dropped from the sight of what happened.
Her hooded cousin, Tintement, was standing of Adam’s back. When he entered the ballroom, Tintement jumped from the top staircase and pounced on him.
Belle: (shouts) Tintement!!!!
Tintement: Hmm? (Quickly turns around/happy voice) There’s my little cousin!!
