She looked around her surroundings. No one was in the room.. There was a spear located on the table, along with some armor and bags. She looked to her left. A door. Straight ahead. A wooden bookshelf with a plate of cookies on the very bottom shelf. All the other 3 shelves were filled with books, and they looked quite old. In the middle of the room was a desk, with a typewriter with half a paper completed. Ashlie walked over to the bookshelf and gazed at the cookies. She lifted the plate up. Nothing. She set down the plate. She looked at all the books. A small slit of paper was nudged into one of the books, with a strange title called, ‘The Orange’. Ashlie pulled out the paper. It read, ‘Once lost, now found.’


She sighed. Slipping the paper into her jacket pocket, she made her way over to the desk. A small coffee mug was placed next to the typewriter, but it was empty. Ashlie read the paper. It was all gibberish, but she could make out a few words. 

Orange. Flour. Sharp. Battle.
