It was a perfect snow day. It was up to 2 foot here in Connecticut and
if it was even 1 inch lower, it wouldn’t have been a snow day. But
that’s that. We had a perfect joke/snow attack on our friend here, Mike.
He had no idea what we’ve planned for him. He had wanted to go sledding
a lot and this was day. My other friend, Kevin, we had planned this for
4 months. This is secret, but you should know, if you can promise not
to tell him, which, I assume you can. We had a shoe box, tall enough to
fit a hollow watermelon in there. The hollow watermelon had a
cylinder-ish hole down the middle about 0.5 cm wide. There was a string
inserted through and attached to the top and bottom. The bottom had a
lightly carved circle, light enough to not fall when holding the box,
but heavy enough to lift up. When I lift it up, the hollow watermelon
with the 15-pound weight. The string will not be strong enough to
support it, making it break the string, then the watermelon will roll
down the snowy hill. It would then endure a 2-foot fall onto a catapult
loaded with snowballs, launching it a Mike. Anyway, we got up the hill,
waiting for the perfect time. Just as he was sledding down the hill, we
pulled the box. It rolled down the hill, triggering the catapult, and
launching the snowballs in his face. He got up and looked around. He saw
us at the top of the hill and came up. He said: “What was that for?”
“Oh, it was for the fun of it. So now, how about cleanup time.” We
gathered the materials, put them back home, and then built snow forts
and had a huge snowball fight. It was the best snow day ever.
DAY” Lance screams. he runs off to go call all of his friends. they
decide to build forts and have a snow ball fight. as soon as they got
started Lance could feel something was going to happen to one them. “3 2
1 … Go” they all screamed. as soon as Lance went to capture the other
teams flag he thought of an idea. that very day they had 2 and a ½ feet
of snow. so he went home and grabbed a shovel and dug until he hit
something hard on the ground. he had found a vase that was “valuable”.
He showed it to his teammates and they call a timeout. all of them
gathered around and then they decided to take it to a cash shop. so
they all went to the cash shop and the guy said “this vase is 102 years
old it is worth $300,000.” the boys went nuts and they all decided to
give $200,000 to Lance since he found it. then the winning team in
capture the flag will all split the $100,000. so Lance continued on his
secret path to the other teams base. he had finally reached when the
secret path broke so he quickly got the flag and sprinted all the way to
his base. unfortunately for him all the other team was there so they
saw him and started throwing snowballs at him. all of a sudden
everything went to slow-mo and Lance started doing matrix and dodging
everything. he captured the flag and won the $100,000 for his team.
that night he told his mom about the money and she went crazy now they
were million airs. so the next day he got a giant present spent with
his money and that was a GO-KART and ROLLER BLADES.
sat alone in the train station, listening to music on my iPod. My
mother had gone to the ticket stand to refund our tickets. We got snowed
into the station. “Samantha” my mother said as she walked to me. “It's Sam” I said, under my breath. “We can not get our money back, but they gave us $100 to spend in the station.” I
slowly lifted my head and took out one of my ear buds. Even if she was
trying to be my mother, she will never be. Last year Mary and Jim
Perkins adopted me. They adopted me. I don’t like being called
Samantha, it's too “girly.” As my mother walked to the lunch area, she
talked to my dad. We had come here for his work. Why did we have to come
to Dad's stupid conference? I thought. My black bangs fell over my
eyes, I put my headphones back on and played Dream On by Aerosmith. I
looked down and in the reflection of my iPod and I saw a man standing
behind me with a knife. I quickly turned around and all I saw was the
heavy snow falling. That was the last time I saw him and it’s 12 years
On a Sunday, I woke up with excitement. I told my mom that I
will call my friend Jake, so we can go sledding together. He happily accepted
the invite. My mom, sister and I waited for Jake at the front of his house. He
came out with this huge object. My mom was wondering what that was. Jake told us
that it was a snow tube. We were still confused. He told us that it’s like a
tube for water, but you go sledding on it. His snow tube was so big, it barely
fit in the car. Along with that, Jake was barely visible because of the
ginormous snow tube. When we parked at the Art Hill parking lot, all of us were
excited. My mom and my sister went to the other side of the hill, while Jake
and I were sledding on the other half. Jake and I found a place where there
were holes in the ground. Jake nodded and we went down. I had a spongy sled,
while Jake was in the snow tube. I was holding onto Jake’s snow tube because it
goes faster than my sled. We switched spots after each time we went down the
hill. While we were nearing the bottom, we were going faster and faster so we
hat to jump off our sleds and tubes. Even though Jake and I got a little wet
and cold, we liked going down the hill. We especially liked when we went in air
because of the potholes. When it was time to go, Jake and I were WET! And by WET, you know what I think. Jake and I came to an agreement that we
should play at my house. He could’ve come to my house only after we get a nice shower.
We had a lot more fun later during the day.
I was racing towards the finish line. snow was in my face.
A saucer was about hit me right when, I went through a portal.
Chapter 1 The Letter
I held the letter to my face.”I made it in!” I yelled. Mom and dad
raced in.” Now before we get ahead of our self’s, you are already an A+
student and ready to go to college. You don’t need to do this. You also
are in the military, you-”
I cut him” Don’t say that. could you imagine what could happen if
somebody found out. The U.S computer system could shut down. The planes
thrown off course and boats too.”
“Listen honey.”My mom always uses that voice when I’m mad,” you’re far
to caught up with the military business. Remember the foot, remember
last time you entered a competition and you got attacked by the
I know but mom ever since I got the super suit I’ll be safe, plus Erik,Aidan,Danny, and Jacob will be there to protect me.”
“ Okay sweety but we’ll have to visit your court master to get your
sled protected and tricked out.” I always thought I would be okay at at
competitions but something always happened. I’m only ten. the people I
said who are protecting me are always there and we met at training
school. I got first posted at New City with Erik,but other people showed
up so I got transfered to Glenridge. Then a year after that Erik got
transfered to Glenridge. At Glenridge I’m acting as a normal kid. Soon I
will be transferred to a different school.
Chapter 2 The Plan
When I arrived at the place I knew it was going to be tough. Men with
cameras were everywhere. A news chopper was hovering in the air and
there were portals on the slope. this is all a simulation. Before every
mission I do a small simulation so I know what to expect. The sled was
bullet proof, the rails were high up so if someone shot it would be no
big deal. Of course there was a sleep dart attachment. I was expected to
see a news chopper with a hidden gun also the camera men are armed. I
was ready with equipment I’m required to have. My supersuit is working.
There are many risks I’m taking here.
The trip took 4 hours to get the slope. I slept on our private jet.
when we arrived I got to the slope and started practice sledding. I also
met the competition. They were all girls. The first one was a tall
brunette with blue eyes. Already knew her, her name was Sara Glenn. Very
tall she was posted at Glenridge but a year younger. Next was Julie
Ross medium blond and was from Colorado. Next was Clara Stienbond, tall
blond with a English accent. Next Kim Dillon Medium ginger with short
hair. That was the competition. I went upstairs and went to bed. I woke
the first day of the race I won, Kim got eliminated the first round. The
next round I got a tie with Clara for last so we went on our own race.
She got eliminated. Even though I fell I got into a portal and won. Next
Julie got lst, so it was the final two me and Sara. THe news chopper
came. As the blow horn went I saw the chopper get low. I raced pt it.
Then the shots came. Hit my sled breaking it. I realized I picked up the
wrong sled. I was racing for the finish line a saucer about to hit me
when I went through the portal. I was close to the bottom now the
chopper still shooting at me when bang I got first place. Then I jumped
into the chopper and started to beat up the guys and before I jumped off
I got hit and everything went black.
Chapter 3 The Injury
I woke up in the hospital. Guards were in front of my door. My stomach
was so sore. I looked down and almost screamed. There was a line on my
stomach. Dr. George Thomas came in we were friends.” Well nothing
serious just a shot in the belly.”
“In the belly I could have been killed. Think of all the people who got shot int the stomach and died.”
“ You were lucky.” He sat there looking at me. “ You can go home. I
mean Sara delt with the man who shot you and rushed you to the
“ Thanks I’ll stay here for a while. Do you know what time it is?” I asked.
“ It’s time for you to go to bed.” Mom and Dad said.
“ Okay.” I said as I drifted off into sleep I realized I was lucky to
have people protecting me. I was lucky to have Sara being there to
was dancing everywhere. It was twenty degrees outside and it was
freezing. I had nothing to worry about. I just sat inside with a nice
cup of hot cocoa. Man, was I lucky to have this cocoa in front of me. It
was so dreamy and sweet. I just couldn’t bear to drink it all in one
gulp. I had to savor it. So i decided to take a nap. I went upstairs to
get my moms sherpa blanket. Then I lay down on the couch, curl up, and
wake up. I start blinking to get awake. I stretch and yawn. “Man, that
was a really nice nap.” I walk over to my hot chocolate. It was still
nice and warm, but it had a lot of bubbles in the cup. It was really
strange. So I just sit back down and watch some T.V. After a few
episodes of Spongebob I go to check on my hot chocolate. But then...
BOOM! It exploded! The mug busted into a million pieces, I was soaked,
and the house was soaking! I didn’t know what to do :S
I stood there. Just wondering what to do. Then I decided I should get a
bunch of paper napkins and dry the house. I was racing around the house
trying to dry the place. But then I heard the door open. Poop. My mom
was home. When she walked into the room all she had to say was “ GRAM,
TO YOUR ROOM!!!!!!!”
always managed to get into Jace's gloves. And he hated it. He hated
snow all together. It was always in the way when he walked to school,
and his parents expected him to shovel their driveway. There was one
good thing about snow. It means that Christmas was close. And this
Christmas Jace has something in store for his family. Something they
won’t forget. Jace calls this the holiday disaster.
Holiday Disaster was just a thought that Jace had when his twin sister
Lizzy broke his favorite model airplane. For nights he had been working
on this holiday disaster. It had been six months since he started
working on it. Every day he went to school (he was in 5th grade) came
home and worked on the holiday disaster.
was just around the corner and Jace couldn't wait. All he needed was
some fresh snow and he would be ready. What was in the holiday disaster
remained a secret. But as a reader I think you should know. First
there was a shoebox which Jace would rap as a gift for Lizzy. But
inside the shoebox was an airbag. You would but the snow on top of the
airbag. What triggers the airbag is a string connected to the top of
the shoebox box that opens up.
Then Christmas came.
Christmas morning came and it went like this.
“Jace wake up.” Said Lizzy. “Why are you in my room.” “Because it is Christmas and I have to wait for your lazy butt to get out of bed to open presents!” She screamed. “Fine I’m coming.” Jace walked down stairs to see the Christmas tree surrounded by presents. “Lets start opening them.” Mom said in a cheerful voice. “How about we start with Lizzy’s.” Said Mom “Yey!”
Lizzy screeched. She took a look at the holiday disaster which was
neatly wrapped in snowmen present rap. “This one is from Jace.” She
mumbled. Her tiny hand unwrapped the wrapping. Everything went slowly for
Jace. Then her hand gently took of the top and then BAM. And Jace couldn't stop laughing.
It was a cold ice day when the roads are blocked and the doors are shut. But that doesn’t keep anyone coming in from your window. And that’s what happen , that’s the mystery.
was no cops. But there was a girl named Sarah. She was with her baby
brother and her older sister Jellia. Sarah was walking up her staircase
when she heard booming music from her older sisters room ( Jellia ). So
She decided to creep inside. When she peaked in. No one was there. Only
Jellia’s phone with Justin Bieber “ Baby “ on. Sarah was pretty scared
but with the bursting music of Justin Bieber kinda made her giggle.
Sarah peaked her one eye out of the corner of the window. She saw blood
trailing out of the window to the bottom of the hill at the end of
started to panic and all of the sudden “ Lemme tell you one time , girl
i love , girl i love youu!”. Sarah was getting really annoyed from the
music and through the phone out the window. With the phone, She Dropped.
the time Sarah dropped and got on the cold frozen snow , Sarah saw her
parents car parking into the drive way. Sarah went following the blood
trail before her parents saw her. Since she didn’t want her parents
seeing the blood trail Sarah digged her snow boots into the snow and
lift the snow up covering the blood. It was cold, but Sarah was too
close to ending the trail that it wasn’t time to go back and admit that
her sister was gone and most likely dead. Sarah got to the ending of the
trail and when she turned around a strange figure was standing above
her. It wasn’t an animal, and nor a tree. She looked up and her sisters
body laid there. Dead, and her sisters eyes were still opened ,
staring at Sarah. Sarah dropped to the ground, balling and crying to
death. Sarah then looked behind her, and standing there was a
snowman.holding a knife and looking right at Sarah. “ Hello Snowman” Sarah said. “ Ba..ba...ba...ba...baby...” The Snowman said getting closer to Sarah. “Ba...ba...ba...baby...o...ohhh” Even closer the snowman went. “ I Thought you’ll always be mine,mineeee” And so close the snowman went. “OOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!!!!”
The snowman toke the knife and a sound came from the tree where
Sarahs body layed. And Jellia looked down holding her last breath. And
whispered “ Justin Bieber” And that was the last words Sarah heard from her sisters mouth ever again.
