He stopped to rest in a small room that had a candle holder on the wall. The candle holder had blood all around it, but Italy tried to ignore it the best he could. He walked to the other door and walked out. He took three steps when he saw a knife fly at him. He stepped to the side and began to run. He heard more knives fly at him, but he made it out the door before one could pierce through him. He walked into the first room he saw. He saw a frog in a pond as he walked over to it. The frog looked at him and hopped out of the pond. He picked it up and walked out of the room.
He walked down the hall and saw Germouser. He walked over to him and the cat gave him a wide-eyed look.
"Hallo. By the way, this is a witch's house," he said and Italy just stared at him.
"I knew that."
"You knew that? Right, right," the cat said before resuming his grooming. Italy walked past him and tried to open the door, but it wouldn't open. He walked back in the hallway and looked over, seeing a thin, wire bridge. He walked over to it and stared across, seeing a lever on the other side. He put the frog down and pointed across the bridge.
"Can you pull the lever for me?" he asked and the frog responded by jumping across the wire bridge. He jumped on the lever, making it fall to the other side and Italy heard an unlocking noise. The frog hopped back over and he picked it up and walked back to the door. Suddenly, he saw someone running toward him, but they disappeared before making it to him. Italy felt a cold chill run down his back.
"No way... He... He looked just like me..." Italy murmured, and Germouser looked at him.
"Who looked like you?" he asked, but Italy shook his head.
"Nothing, never mind," he said as he walked into the room that was locked earlier. He walked into a dining room and when he walked past the table, the other side looked exactly the same except for a few differences. He looked around and saw a note on the wall. He walked over to it and read it.
MAKE A MIRROR IMAGE
"Make mirror image..." he repeated to himself as he walked into the middle of the room. The first thing he noticed was that the paintings and the things on the shelf were different. He walked over to one of the paintings and pushed the button underneath the frame, which made the picture change. He changed it to one of two women standing together, and went to the other picture and changed it to the same one. He then rearranged the things on the shelf.
He saw there was a frog on one of the chairs so he went to the other side of the room and put the frog on the same chair. He went to the small cupboard and got a piece of cake. He went to the table and set it down. He then got the plant and moved it to the other side. He walked over to the vase and saw that it held five roses while the other one held six. He walked over to the table and took the rose before heading back to the other vase and putting it in there.
He looked around and saw he was done, but he didn't hear an unlocking sound. He then realized the note was still on the wall. He walked over to it and tore the note off the wall, which was followed by the unlocking sound. He walked past the frog and heard it croak at him. He looked at it as it jumped off the chair and over to him. He smiled and picked it up before heading into the other room. He saw another diary and walked over to it.
My "father" and my "mother" didn't love me. So I X them. I've been in this house ever since.
"I really wonder what X means," he said as he walked out of the room. He walked into a barren room that had two pieces of paper laying on the floor. He picked one up and read it.
"What..." he looked at the door and walked over. He could tell immediately that something was on the other side. He pressed his ear to the door and he could hear it moving. And it was something big, he could tell. He then looked through the viewing window and he could see slimy black scales and something big coiling up. He then saw narrow eyes looking at him and whatever it was tackled the door. Italy stumbled back and stared at the door in horror. He walked back over and looked through the window again. It was a giant snake.
"So... The snake is hungry? But there's nothing to feed-" he stopped short and looked down at the frog he held.
"No..." he whispered as the frog looked up at him. He closed his eyes and put the frog in the window. The frog was of course reluctant and it struggled but he forced it through. Something hit the door and Italy took a step back as he held his tears back. He walked to the door and looked through the window. He didn't see the snake so he went in. He saw blood on the ground and a crack in the wall. He sighed sadly, whispering sorry before he went through the other door. He walked down and saw multiple cat statue's lined up. He saw Germouser so he walked over. He didn't look at him.
"A cat statue... Kidding!" Italy frowned and walked away.
"Hey! don't ignore me!" Germouser growled but Italy ignored him and kept walking. When he walked past the last statue, the head spun around. Italy looked at it with wide eyes and bolted out the door. He walked up the steps carefully since the room was dark. He saw a note and squinted his eyes to read it.
GO WHERE ONLY ONE EYE IS OPEN
He sighed and walked down the dark hallway. He saw a face painted on the wall with both its eyes closed. The next painting was the same and the last painting had both eyes painted opened. He stared at the painting for a while.
"Only one eye is opened..." he said aloud as he stepped to the side. He pushed on the wall and it broke open. He went through the opening which led to another dark room. He walked up the narrow walkway, coming to another door. He took a deep breath and walked through it.
