What NOT to do in middle school

1.Never ride home in the car. You’ll find the bus is so much more fun, especially if you have friends. You only ride home in the area if you’re taking a friend home or someplace else.

The Doe

The Doe

By Jake M

Her body was soft,

and warm,

and fluffy,

and as she crossed the meadow,

She turned,

and looked at me,

willing, and trusting.

And I saw the blink of her wide eyes,

and white spots covering her,

and just how nice she looked,

sitting on the flowery meadow.

Then out of the flowers,

with those wide eyes,

leaving quietly,

steadily,

leisurely,

she left,

That strange doe,

warm, nice, trusting,

as if nothing had ever happened,

but something had happened,

a bond.

Spring

Spring

Spring flowers bloom,

Blue birds fly,

But winter comes fast,

The plants wither and die.

I chose this poem because spring and summer go by so fast that no one notices that it is gone. It can just die on you and you don’t have it anymore, it can be gone in a flash and your world is changed. What if you don’t have it and you will never get the chance to say goodbye to it.

St Thomas, Virgin Islands, Buildings

the water is so transparent that you can even see the color of your toenail polish color through the water. ¬†Filled with millions of fish, sting rays, and octopus’. In my opinion it’s the best place in the world.

The Sign

"No fair, you said I could keep the first one no matter what." I said angrily
"Do you want to keep it?" Sam asked teasingly
"As a matter of fact I do!" I replied
"Bu..but this could help our family and we wouldn't have to work for ayear." He said defeated
"But I could ride him and I would have a mount for my whole life." I said excitedly
"What good would a mount do to you?"
"Well, for starters I could lay underneath him and stay cool, secondly I could ride to the market on him, and he would be fun to ride, so other kids would want to ride him and I would meet new people."
"You're forgetting that you would need a saddle."
"Oh yeah" I said defeated
"He could pull our carts to the market whenever we go." Sam said realizing how much I loved the goltortle
"Yeah, I'm sure dad would like that!"
"C'mon I've already got a mount so now you get one."
I forgot to tell you he has a mantrine it a kind of flying type gem that looks kind of like a manta ray and it can also swim.

The Sign

“Sam, do you see anything? How long has it been?”
“Just be quiet Jake and it’s only been 15 minutes, and besides you get the first one no matter… what!”
“What? What is it?”
“Shhh look over in the pond.” He said in a low whisper.
“What is it?” I said in a whisper also.
“It’s called a goltortle . They’re only able to be caught with gold keys and your the only one here with one.”
“What do I do?! What do I do?!” I said excitedly.
“Just toss the key at it softly and don’t make loud noises.” With that I threw it. It was slowly approaching the key and right when it nibbled it there was a blinding flash of golden light. The key was glowing and the goltortle was gone.
“What are you doing?” I said as I saw Sam putting on gloves and going for it.
“I’m getting the key for you doofus. This could keep our family fed for a year!”

The Sign

“Woah,” I said in awe when we were in the air.

“How can you even see anything from up here?” I asked. I knew the answer already because I had been up here with him multiple times. “Well you just have to use your goggles. Here I’ve been holding them for you in my pocket for a while.”

“Wait mom and dad got me some!? But mom said I’d have to buy them with my own money.” I asked a little confused.
“I bought them for you with my own money doofus,” and with that he punched me in the shoulder.

“What! They cost like 250 Coins. Why would you buy them for me?”
“It’s what a nice brother does, like saying nice compliments, and getting nice stuff for the other one.”
“Thank you so much!”

The Sign

Tick, tick, tick, tock. Couldn’t the clock see we wanted to leave. Summer started in just 2 minutes. So many new Pixies, Boulders, Tricksters, Infernos, and Waterwings to catch. Seconds felt like minutes, minutes felt like hours, I could keep on going on about the, Ding! That’s the bell.

Its my birthday and I’m finally old enough to catch and tame monsters. My parents are giving me a hang glider, 1 gold key, 3 silver keys, and 5 bronze keys. With all that stuff you can catch what’s called the gems of the keys where the monsters stay. I can’t wait for Sam, my brother,to pick me up on his bike. He said that he would teach me how to fly a hang glider with him and we could go catch monsters together. Some we can use to sell as a job but a lot of them I’m going to keep. Sam works a job and sells the monsters to anyone he can find. That’s how my family is alive, he works to keep our family alive. Next it’s my turn to catch the monsters.

“Hey!” I heard Sam say,” there you are. I’ve been waiting about 30 minutes for you.”I noticed he didn’t have his bike, but he had 2 hang gliders with him.
“What!” I said excitedly,” mother and father let you bring the hang glider!”
“Not only that, they heard that there was an important meeting and they had to go to the village so they let me bring your keys to you for your first monsters.”

Castlewood

Chapter 1

It was “The Day”. No one really had a name for it. It was just the day each week where anyone that breaks rules is picked out to leave. No one ever knew where they went, but no one wanted to find out. You just had to hope you weren’t the one to leave. You leave your family your friends and only the council knew where you were going. This week it was Hunter and I. We had been caught stealing from the bakery. We had almost got away but we were climbing back up the cobblestone wall and got caught. Which meant we were leaving.

Chapter 2

Before we left we had to say goodbyes to everyone that we knew. Our families mourned the day they found out. Which was the day ¬†we found out. The day we left. We cried the whole ride there. We finally dared to ask the bus driver where we were going, And he answered back,” a place better than where you just came from.”

At first we were confused. I thought thoughts and wondered wonders but never thought of a place better than home. The bus stopped I heard someone say, but I didn’t notice because I was still in daze thinking about a place better than home right now. All I could think was how bad we were gonna die.

Was it torcher, was it just quick and painless? And then I saw it. It looked almost like a door but just blackness inside…

Chapter 3

I struggled to get away but he had one of those “Iron Grips”. We finally lined up to go through the door and said our last goodbyes. We jumped, below me I heard, “whoa!” Then I heard a splash and I saw it. It was amazing, but at this speed we’d hit the water too hard. Valleys of orchards, grasslands, forests, oceans, lakes, and right here a cozy little spring, and we fell straight into it. There were other people too, sitting in the spring, jumping in the spring, and just having fun. I decided I’d just cannonball in.

“I didn’t die!” was my first thought. Then I heard “come over here.”from Hunter.

We went to the edge of the spring and asked each other, “Where are we?”and then we heard some one answer,” you’re in Castlewood, this is where you come if the headmaster from your other place sees adventure in you, come, come you all must be hungry after that drive. Lindy, come on you can come out, and could you bring these gentlemen some towels, drinks, and sandwiches.” We saw a pink little head poke out from around the corner and then it walked out. It was kind of cute, it looked like a short, little, furry table with legs, a head, and a little tiny tail.

“This is a Pinkpuff ,” we heard in awe.

Any ideas of what the place should be called, or what the animal should be called?
