This is it, you think as you walk up the steps and stop at the large doors. Today’s the day – the day you’ve worked so hard for. After months upon months of rehearsing – of tears, laughter, sweat, and lots of frustration – you’re finally ready. You didn’t think this day would ever come, but here it is at last. Today is the opening night of your performance.
Meet Duncan Walsh. He’s 15 years old, does abnormally well in school, doesn’t have a girl friend, wears his hat the wrong way and his shoes are 4 sizes too big. He’s the least popular kid in the entire state, and he finds oversized football jerseys “hip”. He may seem like a wanna be, but he doesn’t know it. To him, he’s Duncan Slam, the coolest in the state. No matter what he does he’s the coolest kid who ever lived… to himself. How is this possible, you may ask? Well, sit down and be a little patient, and you might just figure out (Maybe).
A full moon cast shadow on the cobblestone street as a slight figure walked silently toward an ally, away from where a still form lay in the middle of the street. The figure carried a small package and kept looking back, as if watched. If anyone had looked out the beautiful flower framed windows they might have seen the figure slip the package into an ally and leave, but they didn’t.
“There is something not right here,” I thought, so I walked over to the shelf and fixed the book.” There that is better.” As a librarian we always have to be on the look out. Not as much though as my other job. Let me introduce myself, my name is Ralph Lion but most people know me as “The Amazing Spider Lion.” My motto is that I fight crime and bad hair. As you can see I fight crime well and looking at my hair it’s easy to see how amazing I fix hair.
I am Adesina, and I am 13 years old. I live in the Meru Tribe in Kenya. My mother named me Adesina because it means she opens the way. I have asked her numerous times why she named me that, and every time she would tell me that someday I will know. I hung on the thought of knowing why someday for several years.
Filled with animals and many visitors of all ages, there was one very special elephant in the North Carolina zoo. Her name was Nisha. It was an Indian name meaning ‘night.’ She slept all day long which was very rare and was awake all night. Her name may have had a bigger impact on her actions than her trainer, Mr. K, thought.
Moving is never easy, but my exhausting migration from Mexico City to Madison, Wisconsin, was like taking candy from a child. When my dad came home with a dim look on his face, I thought he got in a car accident, but instead found out we would be moving to the United States. My mother’s reaction was bittersweet. She would have to leave twenty‐six cousins, five sisters, four brothers, and the rest of her family, and have her baby on foreign land.
"Did you have to drag ME along, too?" "I already told you, I didn't have a choice in this. If I did we wouldn't be here," Rodalov repeated for what felt like the hundredth time. Oducip's negativity was getting very annoying. "What could we do against it anyway?" said Oducip. "I have no idea, but they must have chosen us for a reason. Either that or they want us dead," Rodalov responded.
A red flaming dragon named Sun was terrorizing Anglo-Saxons in a medieval town of England named Jersey. He threw buildings, ate the bakery, stole lots of metal, and he kidnapped many knights and civilians throughout the night; it was up to Sir Bobert to save the city and his good people. On the journey he was accompanied by his trusty sidekick Michael who carried all the supplies and what not.
“Thump, thump” went the door of the bathroom I was encased in. With each knock fear seared throughout my body, I couldn’t figure out what it was that scared me so much about this person. The sound of his fist banging against the door scared me more than the thought of death. His eyes were red, body was unstable, his stuttering voice repeating “let me in, let me in, I’m your father, let me in.”
"I'm so excited!" screamed my best friend Jaycee. "I know. I am too," I told her. "But I am also really nervous!" I'm going to be on the Xfactor." "Don't worry Bella. You are going to be great!" said Jaycee. I know, but don't you realize that it's the same competition our idols, One Direction, were on and now they're going be judges. "I'm afraid I'll mess up," I said nervously as I was packing my suitcase to prepare for England.
Hey cade go away I’m trying to sleep! I took a look at the clock and the time was 11:34am. I walked out of my room and started my normal routine which was: get up, eat breakfast, brush my teeth, get in the shower and get dressed. Usually this takes about 45 minutes on a good day but when I looked at the clock it was still 11:34am. I thought the power had gone out and our clocks had stayed like that. But when I checked my watch it was stuck on 11:34am also. I knew something was wrong when I went downtown and the Wachovia clock was stuck on 11:34am. I was so puzzled by this I didn’t even realize that everybody was frozen but not by temperature. It’s like they were frozen in time.
Once in a medieval village lived a king and three sons of the king. The king was getting old and he had to decide which son could take his place. The king finally decided that the first son to slay the dragon would be king.
The dragon had a terrible reputation in the village. He had bat wing, big horn on his head, a big mouth that could eat anything and his skin was as red as blood. He would come to the village and destroy the whole village when he got angry in any way.
In the mountains of Japan, there was a small hut surrounded by a few trees which housed nobody but an old man who was stuck in bed with this strange sickness. He couldn’t move and all he could do was remember the past. Memories streamed slowly in his mind, like a slowly moving river through his childhood… adulthood, and that’s when he stopped. Something sparked inside him, a past he tried to forget, but that was impossible to do. He grimaced, and slowly closed his dark black eyes.
Selena sat in her father’s car quietly. Her thoughts swirled around in her head, only a few days ago her father told her that he was moving her to Ireland, away from her best friends, her family, and her school; her father ran outside, “Ready to go Sel?” he asked cheerfully. “Hah, Yeeaah,” she said sarcastically. “Come on Selena, brighten up! He said flashing her a goofy grin. She scowled at her father, but couldn’t help, but laugh. “Alright let’s head out,” her father said. “Wait daddy, can we PLEASE! Stop at the hardware store?” she asked giving her father intense puppy-dog eyes. “Selena….” he said, by the look on his face she knew what the answer would be. “PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! DADDY!!!!” She yelled falling on her knees begging. “Alright! Alright! Goodness girl!” Selena’s father yelled giving up. “YAY!!” she said smiling brightly. Her father grimaced, but she paid no attention, she was seeing her boyfriend.
There once was a family that always disagreed with each other, the children, Amy and Edward would try to get their parents to stop. But one time Mr. and Mrs. Holmes got in a huge fight and decided to separate. They thought they had too many differences. Mom was more serious and always dressed more formal, while Dad dressed casually and acted less serious. Mom loved to read as did Amy and Edward liked to watch sports with his Dad. Mom always thought Dad was a little lazy and thought he was beginning to influence Edward. So they split the children, Amy went with her Mom because she had more of a similar personality. Amy with her dark brown hair like her Mom always agreed with her, while Edward was more like his Dad with Blonde hair and a similar attitude. Amy and Edward always got along though ever since they were separated. Amy and Edward really missed each other.
