Python Why does this If Else statement not working in Python?

I have the following code

If Else Statement:
    randomNum = random.randint(1,10)

    number = input("To enter the land you must guess my number in 3 guesses or be taken to the darklands:
    ")
    guesses = 1
    
    while guesses != 3:
        print()
        guesses = guesses + 1
        
        number = int(number)
        if number < randomNum:
            number = input("WRONG, my number is larger, try again: ")
            
        elif number > randomNum:
            number = input("WRONG, my number is smaller, try again: ")
            
        elif number == randomNum:
        break

but when I run it sometimes it works incorrectly as below


I am thinking of a number that is in between 1 and 10
To enter the land you must guess my number in 3 guesses or be taken to the darklands: 5

WRONG, my number is smaller, try again: 3

WRONG, my number is larger, try again: 4
You did not get it in time and will be sent to the darklands
