Finally after what seemed like a year of my life the mystery man woke up. He groaned in pain. I quickly got up despite the agony in my leg.
“Hello,” I whispered to the man, “how are you feeling?”
“Wh-where am I?” he groaned.
“You are in the Lords hospital room.” I said.
“How did I ge-get here?” he asked.
“As I recall, you tried to attack the Lord, but miserably failed. Then you got 12 knives thrown at you from guards.” I remembered. “Umm…who are you, and why are you in the hospital room?” the man asked.
“Well, I was kidnapped by the Lord,” I said suddenly mad,”and I’m here because when YOU ATTACKED SOME OF THOSE KNIVES HIT ME!” I shouted. This man was the reason why I was in this much pain!
“Oh…well I’m really sorry, but do you know what the Lord will do with me?”
“Yes, your going to be thrown in the cell room with me.” I answered.
I woke up to pain. I looked up and noticed that I was in some kind of infirmary. I was laying on a bed. A bed! I hadn’t slept on a bed in 3 days, it felt so comfortable. If it hadn’t been for the horrible throbbing in my leg I might of actually liked it. I looked at my leg for the first time, it was covered in a snow white bandage. I looked at the bed next to mine, the warrior that attacked was now unconscious. The warrior had both arms bandaged and a leg bandaged. Suddenly, the door slammed open. The Lord came in flanked by 4 guards. He walked over to my bed and smiled with fake sympathy. “I’m sorry you had to experience that attack, we have had slight difficulties with our security.” He said. “I noticed that.” I murmured under my breath. “Our friend here will be spending the rest of his life with you in your cell by the way.” The Lord smiled when he said that. “I just wanted to let you know you will be back in your cell after about 2 days according to the doctor.” After The Lord left the room I took a closer look at my future cell mate. He was quite handsome, his face was battered with bruises, they had left him in his glasses. They were dark sunglasses. Why would he wear dark sunglasses? I pondered this for a while. After a while I gave up on trying to figure out why he had dark glasses. My thoughts wondered to the Secret Service. Then something connected in my mind, in movies the Secret Service agents always wore black suits with dark sunglasses everywhere. That must mean the man in the bed next to mine could be the key to access to the president.
This year’s Halloween was awesome! I got tons of candy. This year I went with some friends to their neighborhood instead of going trick or treating in my neighborhood. We went to a block party before we started to trick or treat.
I friends I trick or treated with are Parker, Jenna, Brooke, Sumer, Sarah, Nina, and Nicole. When we first started, it was bright outside and we were all sprinting to each house. But after 30 minutes, it started to get dark and instead of running we walked. We went to 2 neighborhoods, Jenna’s and Brooke’s. We were able to go to both of their neighborhoods because they are connected by a road. When we got to Jenna’s house, we dumped out our candy and went back outside to get more. After we decided it was to late to continue trick or treating, we went back to Jenna’s house to sort our candy and trade it. We started throwing candy at each other that we didn’t want. At one point I got bombarded with 3 musketeers candy bars. At about 8’o clock, I texted my mom to come pick me up. When she came she drove Parker and I to our friend Ethan’s Halloween party. At his party I was able to trade my candy with even more people. We also ate some snacks too.
This turned out to be a very successful Halloween for me. I got even more candy than I did in past years, plus I went to 2 parties. At the end I ended up with no candy that I didn’t like. I was able to trade all of them to my friends. Maybe next year I will go through the same route again!
I knew a guy that was part of the Secret Service, I just needed a way to communicate with him. With the situation that I was in right now, it didn’t seem very likely that I was going to be able to talk to anyone but Gan, the Lord and my guard. I knew my parents were probably worried sick. After all, I hadn’t been home in 3 days. I still had some hope that the police would be able to find me here.
The door slammed open, I immediately knew it was my guard coming to bring me to the Lord. He dragged me up and handcuffed me. This was new! He led me to the Lord, who was as always sitting in his throne. “What do you want now?” I said harshly. He smiled warmly at me, but his smile didn’t reach his hungry black eyes. “Not to worry my dear, this will be over soon enough. Soon I will have the world under my control. Then you can go back to you pitiful little house, or you can agree to join me and become the queen of a country. Your choice.” He smiled a cruel smile. I retorted back, “I would never…” Suddenly the doors slammed open to reveal an armed warrior.
Without warning he charged at the Lord, alarm bells rang through the building. Guards streamed in with throwing knives. The warrior didn’t walk 2 more steps, he was thrown at from more than a dozen knives. One of the knives missed the warrior and came directly towards me. I was frozen in mid speech.
I watched as the blade streaked toward me. At the last moment I regained control of my body and dived to the side. Suddenly pain exploded in my thigh, I screamed and rolled around. The blade must have hit me. The pain grew even more intense as another one hit, then another, then another. The room seemed to be spinning, and why was there a puddle of ketchup around me? The last thing I remember was screaming.
Gan was a very powerful wizard, he had tried to take over the world before but had been defeated. Now he was trying again. This was a disaster, he had come very close last time, and was sure to succeed this time. I had to warn the president. Maybe I could figure out a way to trick them into letting me call someone. I would pretend to call someone else. But why would the president believe me? I needed someone who trusted me and who the president trusted. Someone who had access to talking to the president. I needed the Secret Service.
He was my brother. I knew he had run away from home at a very young age, but I never thought that he turned evil and was planning on taking over the world or something like that! What was I needed for? I decided that I would play along and try to figure his plan out little by little. The next day for breakfast I got some stale bread and water. It seemed like that’s all I would be eating for quite a while. My guard led me to the throne room, my brother was there. ” What do you want brother?” I said, he merely laughed. “Oh yes, you have finally figured out that I was your brother, took you long enough!” Suddenly the door slammed open, and a dark hooded figure came in carrying a staff. My brother immediately came down on his knees. ” He-hello master.” He mumbled. The figure tossed his staff in the air, it immediately changed into a wand. I suddenly knew who the dark cloaked man was, he was the only wizard in the world, he was the powerful Gan.
I stared at him. I couldn’t describe him. He was amazing, yet he looked familiar some how. ” Hello there Natalie, recognize me?” “How do you know my name?” I whispered. I couldn’t help but notice a scar that went from from his ear to his mouth. “Don’t worry, you will only be needed in the first part of the plan.” He said. “What plan?” I exclaimed. “Oh, I’m afraid I won’t be able to tell you, but just know I will have no regret to kill you if you rebel against me.” He signaled to his guard to take me away, I wanted to strangle him into telling me. Show him who he’s facing. I needed to find a way to escape and warn someone. My guard grabbed me by the scruff and dragged me back to my cell. I recieved my dinner an hour later, stale bread and water. I was deep in thought about my captor, the so called “Lord”. I had seen him before, I recognized his face, and his scar. But how had he known my name? I hadn’t told it to the gaurds, in fact no one knew my name but my family. I realized, family, only family knew my name that must mean, it clicked, I knew who the “Lord” was.
I woke up on a hard cold floor. I shook my head trying to remember how I ended up here. Then it all came flooding back, I had been kidnapped. But why would someone kidnap me? I wasn’t important, I was just a regular girl. Maybe I was a little adventurous, and curious. But who isn’t? I stood up and almost had a heart attack, all around me were scorpions. I recognized the species as the most poisonous ones known. They didn’t seem to be attacking me, thank god! How was I supposed to find out now? Then the door banged open and the same guy came in that knocked me out. I immediately went into a defensive position. I could deal with him! I was a 4th degree advanced black belt in Karate! I threw a punch at his stomach, but my hand merely bounced off. He laughed with joy. He grabbed my arm and said”Come with me little girl, we’re going to see the lord.” He brought me through twists and turns to giant sealed metal doors. He slammed his fist in certain places, and the door sprang open. We walked in and my captor bowed down on one knee. The chair slowly turned and I saw myself face to face with pure evil.
I woke up to darkness. I opened my eyes, all I saw was black. I flailed around rubbing my used to be working eyes. I screamed until my throat was dry. 1 day ago I was able to see the world. The beautiful world. Then I realized I could see, it was just too dark. My immediate thought was it was night time. I flung my arm down and stood up. Trying to find the door to my room. But all I felt was cold stone walls. This wasn’t my room. My room had bumpy walls, my room had windows, my room had a door. Then suddenly I heard a screech and a loud bang. It turns out there is a door. I saw daylight and the outline of a huge man. He walked over and roughly grabbed me. I struggled against his iron grip. Suddenly a cold sharp point was at the soft point on my throat. I froze in fear, not daring to look down. There was a sudden pain in the back of my head and all went black.
