The Storm in a Friendship Part 1

I wrote this story in 6th grade, but I have decided to share it. It’s titled, The Storm in a Friendship.

It was raining. Again. And I hate rain. Lightning flashed across the dark black sky, followed by a rumble of thunder. I hated rain, which was ironic, because my name happens to be Raine. It was raining last spring when–well; actually, I’d rather not talk about it. Lightning streaked through the sky again, leaving a faint yellow glow in my eyes. My bedroom light flickered and went out, plunging me in darkness. My alarm clock began to flash, displaying only 12 o’clock in red numbers.

I was tired, but I couldn’t fall asleep. I picked up my lucky–well, it used to be–blue pen. I called it “lightning bolt blue”, but I never knew why. Lightning bolts aren’t blue are they? I remember the day when my best friend bought it for me. It was a year ago, at a shop that sold school supplies, and it was raining that day too. I clearly remember it.

A light drizzle of rain fell from the sky as my best friend, Katie, and I admired the large rack of colorful pens behind the building next to the school. We had just been dismissed and were walking along the streets.

“I owe you, Raine,” Katie had said.

“For what?” I asked, brushing my dark brown hair aside.

“For buying me that delicious, double-scoop chocolate fudge sundae the other day,” She laughed.

“Oh, all right.” I watched Katie scan the rack of pens. Our eyes landed on the same on, my Lightning Bolt Blue.

“That blue one please.” Katie said to the man behind the stand.

“Are you sure?” The man looked at us a little skeptically.

“Why wouldn’t I be sure?” Katie looked at the man, “I do want that one.”

“Well, suit yourself.” The man handed us the blue pen from the rack. I took it from him as Katie paid. With the new pen in my hand, Katie and I ran home, our jackets zipped tightly. At the intersection dividing our houses, I said goodbye to Katie. I pulled open the door to my house as quickly as I could to get out of the rain. I stepped inside and slipped off my shoes. They were dry. And so was my hair. And my jacket. That was weird. My mother came downstairs when I walked in. She had a smile on her face.

And there’s Part 1 of The Storm in a Friendship. If you want to read more, please comment! 🙂 Thanks! 🙂

Grandpa Gaga

For the most part, Grandpa was a nice man who liked best of all to fish. Err… actually he did until Lady Gaga became popular. I was in excruciating pain everytime I stayed in his condo. Dressing like Lady Gaga, my 65 year old grandpa would blast “Poker Face” or “Bad Romance” while dancing like a madman. One time he played Lady Gaga songs all night! I couldn’t sleep atall. I think it might’ve been because of the song “Telephone” ringing in my ears, or that I was thinking of a Lady Nomore mission. Oh, Grandpa, why don’t you just go back to fishing?

Memoir of a Vampire (chapter 1)

Vampires, vampires, vampires! They’re all the rage. Edward Cullen and the other characters in the number one top selling series, Twilight. What you may not know about the vampire kind is that a full fledged war happened in the year of 1085.

Oh, time to introduce myself. My name is Elizabeth Von Couver. This documentary you’re reading is probably one of the last about the long forgotten vampire war.

It was December 31st, 1084. I knew someone was plotting against me and my dad. My dad was the Vampire King of War, VKW for short. He was the strongest, fastest, and most strategic vampire alive. I knew about the plotting because I inherited my dad’s powers when I was born. Of course, my powers wouldn’t mature until my dad died.

Back to the plotting… There were this group of vampires that called themselves “Vonkillers”. My dad and I absolutely LOATHED those vampires! They were set to kill me and my dad. If you thought vampires couldn’t be killed, you were wrong. Vampires can be killed if you stab them with a wooden stake in the center of their heart. I still don’t know why the “Vonkillers” hated my family so much. I could guess that they wanted to gain pride for their own nasty skins. Ughh! I still hold a grudge against “King Vonkiller” for a cruel thing he did in that war.

Chef Mittens!!

Today the mittens came over to help at the St. Corn Field Dinner! We made smores and nachos. I’m hoping they get a job here because they did such a good job!!

Sorry no pics!:(

Kingdom Hearts Roxas’s Day 1 Part2

When Roxas, Hayner, Pence and Olette came, they saw Rai, Fuu and Vivi at the board.

 They turned around Fuu said”Thieves.”

“That was low y’know.”said Rai.

 Then a shadow came and said “Nice comeback blonde.”

 “What did you say?” asked Hayner.

 “You were the only guys that want to steal it,” said Seifer” and that was undeniable proof that we totally owned you lamers. So what did you do to it? Burn it. Ha, not that we need some (      ) to prove that you’re losers.”

 Then Fuu said “Replay.”

 “Ha Ha Ha Ha! NOW you’re talking! I guess it you get on your knees and beg, maybe I’ll let it slide.”

 Then Roxas went up and want on his knees and Seifer and the rest of the gang laugh at him.

 Luckily there is three weapons he can choose (from left to right) a wand, a sword with a hand guard and a word which is quick and strong. Then Roxas chose the middle one. He ran for it, grabbed the sword and ran to the opposite side. He was ready to battle Seifer when the rest of the group went to the outside area and Watch.

 Seifer was attacking and Roxas blocking all of the attacks. “Come on.” Said Seifer “quit playing around and fight.” So Roxas attacked and hit Seifer. Then Roxas attacking three times and hit Seifer.

Then Rai said “UUU Seifer is not feeling so hot y’know.”

 “Tournament decides,” said Fuu.

Then Pence said “Roxas.” Then he took a picture at him beating Seifer. Then a white thing came and stole the camera.

 “Hey,” said Roxas “it’s the thief.” And Roxas ran after it. Then the white thing (which looks like a human with a flat forehead and white all over) went to the old mansion.

 Then it said “We have come for you, my liege.”

 “What?” said Roxas.

Then it started to attack. Roxas was attacking but always misses? Then his weapon starts changing and turns into a big key.

 “Wha, what is this thing?” said Roxas as the key pointed at the white enemy. Then he used it thinking it was a bad idea using a big key. He took a strike at it and somehow hit it. The Roxas kept on hitting it and it disappeared with pictures flying around. After that he came back to the usual spot where Hayner, Pence and Olette were waiting.

 Roxas gave the pictures to Olette “It was good that we got our photo back. Hey I just said “Photo,” said Olette. Pence said “Hey, we got the word back too.”

“It was weird that the thief wants to steal photos.” said Hayner. Then the bell rings

“It’s already late, let’s go home.” Said Hayner

 “Yea.” Agreed everyone. Then Roxas got blinded by a light and fell down
