Summer House.....


This is a part of the school. Its just a one room cottage where we would gather for some moral science class or some orientation program.But apart from that , we had different reasons to be drawn to the Summer House. This had a trap door and we were strictly asked never to open and enter it.Naturally , that drew us more to it and with each passing year , our curiosity kept growing . So before we left school , we decided to at least open the door and take a peep inside. It was like "Its now or never " situation. Stories goes back that the trap door had a tunnel that lead to the St. Edmunds School.......Suppose to be our brother school ?????? ugh!!! brother!!!!! (well that was how the nuns taught us to take them) and it seems an Edmunds sweater was found once inside the tunnel and since than the trap door has been closed. How far the story was true , no one verified but we would weave lovely imaginary stories around the Summer House during the World War times.

forbidden passages - the stuff of fervent imaginations are probably wilder than reality.

I remember reading Nancy Drew mysteries, and secret passages were so intriguing to me. Great post!
