WordCrafters 3 Chapter 3

Hello everyone!

I hardly ever post writing stuff on my blog anymore. I’m not a huge writer, but sometimes it can be fun. My sister started a thing called WordCrafters a while ago and the third round started last month. Yesterday I wrote the third chapter and thought I’d post it on here for you all to see. (You can see chapters 1 and 2 here.) Continue reading “WordCrafters 3 Chapter 3”

AAWC Story #2

Hello guys! Today I have my AAWC story. 🙂
The challenge was ‘photograph’ and I used my team’s name (eagle) in the story.


I listened to the rain drizzle down the sides of the tent. The trees made creaking sounds in the gentle wind and every now and then lightening would light of the night sky, though it was not accompanied by thunder. Continue reading “AAWC Story #2”

Jamie Gillest ~ Chapter 8

megan 057

And everyone asks, ‘what on earth is Jamie Gillset??

Hehe. Heh. Ho. Hum. Oh dear.

I’m guessing a lot of you don’t remember the last chapter, and if I’m right, you’ll need to go HERE to see the chapters I have written so far. But then come back, because I haven’t added this chapter to there yet. 😉

Whew! After all that explaining, I think I’m ready to start. Here we go!

       “So, since you were going to the waterfall before you bumped into me, would you like it if I took you there?”  Jessica was washing the plates in the basin of water.

“Ooh! That sounds great!”  Jamie loved waterfalls.  Actually, she liked everything about water.  That was why she liked summer best of the seasons, because you could play with water all you wanted.

“That’s great! I need a new supply of fresh water anyway.”

Jamie helped Jessica dry the plates and put them away. Then Jessica got a big blue barrel thing that was on wheels and lifted it out of the trap door.

“This is to carry my water in.  I found it at a farm store in town and got two of them.  I leave one here to use for other things and then I take the other to get the water.  It works pretty good!” Jessica said.

They started their walk down to the river.  They passed the spot where they had picked berries earlier, a big hollow tree that had some emergency supplies in it that Jessica had stored away, and a poison ivy patch that they stayed far away from.

“It wouldn’t be too bad though.” Jessica told Jamie, “because we could wash our legs off in the stream and it probably wouldn’t itch.”

In about twenty minutes they arrived at a river.  It was a small river  Jamie would have called it a stream because it was only about five feet wide.   The waterfall was also small, but it was big enough for Jamie. Many little streams poured into puddles on the ledges on the waterfall and then back down into the river. Moss and a few flowers were growing on rocks.

“Do you want to stick your feet in?” Jessica asked.

Jamie untied her shoes and stuffed her socks into them.  She slipped her feet into the water.

“Brr!” Jamie immediately took them back out. “Wow that’s cold!”

“It feels good up in that little pool on the waterfall.”  Jessica said, pointing the spot the little waterfalls poured into.

“Yeah, but how do you get up there?”

Jessica started climbing up the bank beside the waterfall.  “Like this!” she said.

“Wait for me!”  Jamie was already putting on her tennis shoes.

She climbed up the bank until she got to Jessica.  Then they both climbed up until they were right across from the pool.  They climbed over and sat down on a fairly dry rock.

“Now put your feet in the water!”  Jessica said.

Jamie did.  It was a lot warmer than the moving water, but still pretty cold.

After they had sat there a while Jessica walked over to a boulder and got a fishing rod that had been behind it.

“Have you ever gone fishing?” She asked Jamie.

“No! I haven’t.” Jamie’s father loved to fish, but strangely, she had never gone with him on his fishing trips.

“I will catch a few, and then I’ll show you how, sound good?”

“Yeah, that sounds great!”

“But first we need to further up stream until we get to the pond, there are millions of fish over there!” Jessica stuck her fishing rod in the barrel-on-wheels and nodded to Jamie.

It isn’t very far,” she said. “Just about a five minute walk.

It was actually seven minutes according to Jamie’s watch, but she didn’t say anything.

Jessica picked up a medium sized rock and set it aside. She proceeded to pick up the three fat worms that lay wriggling underneath.

“What are those for?” asked Jamie.

Jessica looked at Jamie, almost in horror.

“You mean you don’t know?!” she asked.

“N-no, should I?” Jamie felt like a dunce, but she really didn’t know what the worms were for.

“Sorry,” Jessica looked a little embarrassed at herself. “I guess since you haven’t ever gone fishing, you probably wouldn’t know.”

“I don’t.”

“I use worms for fishing! I just poke them onto my hook, and the fish gobble them right up, along with my hook of course.”

“Eww! You mean to say that you just kill those poor worms?”

Jamie knew she shouldn’t have said that.

“People have to eat!! If animals didn’t die, then we would never eat!”

“We could be vegetarians.” Jamie could have slapped herself.  She had just gotten to know Jessica three hours ago and here she was, trying to pick a fight.

“Yeah, we could. But we don’t have to! We are allowed to eat animals, for gracious sakes! And are you telling me you are more worried about the worm than the fish?” Jessica was really ticked off.

“Sorry, I guess you’re right.”

Jessica mumbled something and went on picking up rocks and scooping up the worms.


Did you enjoy it? I haven’t edited thoroughly yet, so it’s not the most wonderful. 🙂 Thanks for reading it anyway!

My WordCrafters Chapter

Allison and Josie created WordCrafters and its my turn now! You can go to this page to see all the chapters so far. 🙂

Here is my chapter. I mixed a bunch more fairytales into this one! 😀 I linked to myself just so that Allison wouldn’t have to. 😉


Chapter 11 by Megan

Alalia was closing her eyes when she dropped onto a hard surface. She heard a groan from Jacob and opened her eyes.

“What’s wrong?” she asked him.

“Can’t you see? This must be Cinderella’s Prince’s castle. Look! There’s a shoe!”

He was right. A huge white castle stretched up into the night sky. We were on the steps where a dainty glass slipper lay.

“Shh, get behind this pillar, I hear something!” she motioned to Jacob.

Alalia expected to see the prince come down the stairs, but instead there was a tall young man with crossed legs. He was riding on a… magic carpet?

“Phew!” Jacob whispered, “At least he’s not totally princess-y!”

Aladdin, at least she assumed that’s who he was, flew down to the glass slipper. He picked it up tenderly and gazed at it. Except he didn’t exactly gaze at the slipper itself. It was more like he gazed at something inside the slipper. Next he did something that surprised them both. He took the shoe and shook it above his hand. Out spilled a bean- a bean shimmering with glitter and glistening with beautiful rainbow colors. He took the seed and carefully placed it on the ground.

“Bippity-boppity-BOO!” he cried.

Immediately a plant sprung up. Jacob gave a shout of surprise and Aladdin whirled around. Alalia froze.

“Don’t worry,” he said kindly, “come with me. Pinocchio has given me this magical bean that will transport you into another world!”

Alalia drew in her breath. Is this ‘other world’… our world? She wondered. But what if it wasn’t? What if it was another crazy world?

“I’d rather not,” she told him politely.

Jacob stared at her and whispered, “Alalia, earth! It could be earth! Our world!”

Alalia gave in. She had no idea how she would get back to her parents. If there was a possible way, she would most definitely take it.

“Okay, I’ll come. But are you sure you will be able to take us back to this place if we want to?”

“Not sure,” Aladdin said, grinning at her, “but Pinocchio’s nose didn’t grow when he said that this,” he held out a fluorescent pink bean, “would take me back to his house. So I’m not sure, I’m positive.”

As he spoke a flower began to bloom. It was a beautiful purple flower that looked very familiar to Alalia. Then she realized why. It was one of the flowers that had been growing at the edge of the cave. She was sure that this would take her back!

Aladdin told Jacob and Alalia to climb onto the magic carpet. Thankfully it was a large one and they all fit quite well.

“Totally cool, dude!” Aladdin yelled. Then to us, “those are the magic words.”

A green mist surrounded them. Alalia heard birds singing as they tumbled onto lush green grass.

Jamie Gillset – Chapter 4

Ready for chapter four?

4

Jamie started in surprise.  This girl looked like the same girl that had been riding the horse in her dream.  She had the same ginger hair but her eyes were different.  They were a bluish gray. She had on a blue shirt and on it was a watermelon with sunglasses.  She had capris on.

“Hello?” Jamie repeated.

“Umm, hi!” The girl looked like she was trying to decide whether to stay or run.

“What are you doing in my father’s woods?” Jamie asked.

“Your father’s woods? I-I didn’t know!” The girl’s eyes were wide open.

“Yes, as a matter of fact, they are, and who are you?”

“My name is Jessica.”

“Mine is Jamie.”

“Well, uh, why are you here?” asked Jessica.

“My dad just bought these woods and so I wanted to explore them.  I also got these binoculars from my uncle, and my mom wanted me to try them out.”

“Aha! Well, umm would you like to see my house?”

Jamie thought this was a little strange, being invited to a stranger’s house five minutes after she met her, but she said, “Alright!” anyway.

So Jessica picked up the basket she had dropped when she had first seen Jamie, gathered all the blueberries back up, and led Jamie down a very scrawny path.

“Here we are!”  Jessica announced as they walked into a big clearing.

“A leaf pile?!” Jamie sputtered .

“No.”  Jessica pulled the leaves aside and underneath there was a board, nailed to the ground, with another board hinged onto it.

Jamie gasped, “What’s behind the door?”

Jessica pulled it back to reveal, “A hole?”  Jamie asked.

“Nope” Jessica jumped into the hole.  “Come inside! Don’t worry, there’s a big pile of leaves at the bottom, you won’t get hurt.”

So Jamie jumped down and indeed, there was a big pile of leaves that cushioned her fall rather nicely.

Jessica got down on her hands and knees and crawled into a tunnel.  Jamie followed her, but not without wondering how long the tunnel was and where it led to.  Finally, it opened up into a bigger room.  Well, at least a higher room.  Jamie couldn’t really tell how big it was seeing as it was pitch dark.


This story is getting really fun to write!
