Mike opened the last door to find a huge circular chamber with metal bars built into the red brick walls. He entered the room, searching for more than bricks and bars.
Growling sounds were emanating from within the walls. He edged closer to the bars and was horrified to find wild lions and tigers behind these bars, pacing back and forth in their cages. Their yellow eyes glowed in the dimly lit room.
“There must be a light somewhere in this room that is reflecting on the animals’ eyes. Let’s look for the source of this light; there must be an opening!” Mike urged Louise and David, who were standing behind him.
After a few moments of frantic searching, David called out, “The light is coming from the left side of the room! Look! Over there! There’s a door!” He ran over to the door and searched the bricks for any type of handle.
