5 children break into a museum in attempts to take a scroll, then ZAP, white fire spreads as white spirits emerge to attack all the mortals. As the children are slowly forced into a corner, a griffon comes and flies them out of the museum. Mortal police are confused by these events and are still trying to figure out what happened, but what exactly did happen?

In my book Throne of Fire, written by Rick Riordan, the setting in the story is in Brooklyn and sometimes Russia and London in modern times. Our two protagonists are called Sadie Kane and Carter Kane, and they are trying to collect 3 scrolls with the secret to releasing the Egyptian god Ra before Apophis is released in 5 days. According to the text, Sadie and Carter hate each other and yet still wish to achieve the same goals, as this quote says “Carter does something stupid(and nobody is surprised)”, and when they arrived in Russia, a god called Bes surprised them with the fact that Russians have no trouble seeing magic in any of it’s forms. Then he says “When you get the scroll, meet me by the chocolate museum, err, shop.”. Sadie and Carter then complain that the god gets to eat chocolate while they have to risk their lives to hopefully save the world from getting destroyed from Apophis, which kind of shows how ignorant a god can get at times. They then encounter the most powerful and Russian magician, who summons a two-headed snake in attempts to kill them.

Found poem

This found poem was created with the words of William W. Jacobs from the story “The Monkey’s Paw.” My found poem uses words from page 2 of the story. I chose the background because one, it is one of the many covers for the book the monkey’s paw, and two, it adds to the gothic mystery. I the chose the words so that it sums up the theme of the story, or man versus supernatural. On the third page, It says :“The first man had his three wishes, yes. I don’t know what the first two were but the third was for death.” This means the first man that had wished for things from the monkey’s paw must’ve seen or heard of something so terrible it made him ask for death, and to not only make this sound like a coincidence, on page 3, Mr. White wished for two hundred pounds and at the same time, their son saw a monkey’s face in the fire and decided to say nothing about it. Though the Whites eventually got the two hundred pounds, but the next day, a man Maw and Meggins sent said that their son was hurt but not in any pain. He said :”He was trapped in the machinery “, which after a while, he says :“I have to tell you that Maw and Meggins do not hold themselves responsible for what has happened, but in consideration of your son’s services they wish to give you a certain amount of money as compensation” Then the Whites received the money they wished for. This proves that the monkey’s paw will always take something away from you for every one of your wishes, or you’ll lose something for every one thing you gain.
