It was great fun, though!
We were having a very good time until then. Until Mom and Dad went out for some shopping. My sister and I were in our room, playing games and all that, until my sister wanted to go and get some chocolate from the fridge. She reached the door and pulled it. To her surprise, the door refused to open.
“Dude, I can’t open the door!” she said.
“Stop talking rubbish and get my chocolate.”
I got off the bed on which I was lying comfortably working on the laptop. I went to the door and tried to open it. But in vain. I kicked, pushed, knocked and pulled the door. We tried again until we were sure of the fact that the house help had locked it and disappeared. I was aggravated while my sister was just about to cry.
“Come on, now don’t start crying. It’ll not help.” I told her.
It was a good thing our house is getting renovated during this time, so we had a couple of workers polishing the wood outside in the backyard. Our room was just at the end of the house and the windows looked out upon the backyard. I opened one of the windows and my sister called out to them.
“HEELPP! We’re locked inside this room. Someone please try to open this.”
One of the workers fortunately heard us and went to the front side of our house but the front door was locked and the key was with Mom and Dad. So he couldn’t help us. By this time, we were terribly hungry and I had not yet taken my shower.
As a matter of fact, we don’t have a proper phone (only a small old model which is dead half the time). And our Samsung tablet doesn’t support phone calls. The only ways left were to call Mom on Hangouts or send a mail to Dad. I know the second one sounds weird.
Nevertheless, we typed a long email describing all of the situation and sent it to Dad. But thanks to the poor internet connection, the mail didn’t reach him.
After about twenty more minutes, there was the doorbell ringing. We shouted from our window, “We’re locked and can’t open the door. Get us out of here.”
Fortunately Dad appeared at the window. I narrated the event to him. Soon he got us out of the room.
IT WAS REALLY AN EPIC ADVENTURE!
