Trapped

By Alyssa A

 

Ian’s stomach growled of hunger. He looked around the dark cave hopelessly. It’s no use. There’s no way you can find food in here without light, he thought to himself.

He’s trapped inside the cave ‘cause a huge mountain bear blocked the entrance, which led him to be stuck in there for a long time.

He blindly touched the ground, searching for a stick to build a fire. Finally, he got it, and built it.

He could now see the interior of the cave. Rocks, piled up at the side and bats hanging up from the roof of the cave, upside down. But still, there’s no food in here.

After about 5 hours of starvation and boredom, he went to check on the bear. It lay near the entrance, in deep slumber. Yes, I can finally leave this place. He crept quietly to the side of the bear and left.

Soon, after he was far away from the bear and the cave, he let out the breath that he was holding from the start.

What My Cat Probably Thinks Of Me

By Jared M

Ah. The stupid is coming. What an ugly creature. Eh. At least it does my bidding. It is a fine slave. If I speak, the gorilla-pig thing lumbers over to me.  “Hiyyyy ckitee. Blaaaarrrrgggg.” The thing’s disgusting snout quivers as it babbles nonsense. I begin to direct my commands into the strange hearing disks that adorn its lumpy head. It ignores, reaching its long, clawless paws down to stroke me. As it stomps off, I see the small punching bags it calls toes begin to wiggle. I leap forth, swatting at it. As it turns its head to gaze upon my beauty, its thick, overly long head-fur dangles. I declare that my food has run out because of its incompetence. It begins to emit a strange sound. “You Maek mee laff, keetee.” What does that even mean?! The stupid creature stumbles off, making the stupid sound as goes. Its lack of a tail makes it look all the stupider. As my momma says, the only reason those ridiculous abominations of nature were put on the earth was to feed us and cater to our needs. They are your slaves for life. Enjoy it. My momma was very smart. But if that thing tries to scratch under my chin one more time, its lifelong career will end sooner than it thinks…

Anthony’s Tale

By Alyssa A

Anthony hate bees. But bees likes him. Coffees lighten him up every morning. Drugs disgust him. Elephants are too big for his car. Face painting is his specialty. Guns scares him. Hexagon is his middle name. iPod is his only friend.  Jumps to sleep, every night. Kite flying makes him think of wanting tie himself up on the kite, and ask someone to fly it for him. Llama once ate his socks. Meteor fell on him, but the grim reaper decided that he should have a chance to live because of his stupidity. Nauseous is what he gets, when twirling in his living room, nonstop. Octopuses try to suffocate him. Paper gave him a paper cut once and he didn’t stop crying, ‘till someone was forced to take him to the hospital. Quilt is used when he wants to play dress-up. Rolling down the hill, is what he normally do on his freetime. Saxophone makes him think of the octopus. Tutu delights him. Umbrellas are after him. Vaccines makes him feel lightheaded. Wax paper was in his digestive system once. Xylophone is his favorite band. Yak is his pet. Zebra styled clothes, is his favorite.

Micro Adventure: Adventures of An Inch-Tall Me

By Jared M

I walked up to my table. As I put my hand on it, I closed my eyes. When I opened them, things were different. The table was a grey expanse: flat and foreboding. I was standing on it. The Lego minifigure beside me was suddenly taller than me. My Legos looked like huge buildings and I realized that I was now just over an inch tall. My door, I thought. I have to get to my door. I started to walk. I reached a tangle of action figures. Seeing no way around. I grabbed on to the hand of one and began to shimmy up the arm. Soon, I was walking unsteadily across the limbs of my own toys. One of the pose able limbs that I was perched on shifted. I felt myself fall and barely managed to grab on to the finger of another toy. My small body was easier to support. I pulled myself up and kept going. After passing mountains of plastic bricks, I reached the wall. I went to the tack-board that sat nearby and hopped on one of the pins. It wobbled, but held its place. Just to be sure, I went back and grabbed a tissue: A piece of it might work as a parachute. I tied it around me and began to traverse the pushpins.

The Far Future After 200 Years

By Vincent C

After an 8-hour charging, Dave woke up and felt strength flowing all over his body. He teleported to the shower room, where a tiny device turns all dirty stuff into thin air in a split second.

“Software update! ” said Siri, the virtual voice assistant created by Apple in 2011 and was improved for many years. She then downloaded and installed iOS 207.1.4 on Dave’s mechanical body in under 1 millisecond. “This update fixed a bug where the reflex system might be stuck for 30 milliseconds, and improved support for the teleportation system, making it 5% more accurate. ”

Dave went on and had breakfast. Food, instead of being a required source of energy, became more of an entertainment or a ritual. The food appeared in his mouth, was chewed, tasted, and swallowed, and disappeared.

And now it’s time for a prayer. People perform prayers before they go to work. Dave turned on the hologram of Steve Jobs located in the center of the room, and he kneeled down to pay his sincere respect to this insanely great innovator.

After a 15 minute prayer, Dave teleported to work. “This update is working well! ” he exclaimed, feeling that his teleportation did have increased accuracy. He sat down, logged on to iCloud Drive, and edited the Swift code that he was working on for three weeks (which is part of the next version of iOS). He added a “didFinishTeleport()” function to his extension program.

“Intruder alert! ” a loud voice suddenly shouted, “Samsung troops are invading, please teleport to location 4231 to defend! ”

In 2165 C.E., the world was split into 3 massive nations. The United States of Apple controlled North America, South America, and Japan; the Microsoft Union controlled Europe and Russia; and the Samsung Empire controlled mainland Asia.

Rabbit and the Turkey

By Lauren W

“Chop Chop!” shouted Rabbit. Everyone was at the barn eating their breakfast. Everybody was quiet.  Because when you are very loud you will be eaten. But no one wants that. The owner came in, he was in smile, and he brought a new family that will stay until the Christmas Eve. He looked at us as if he was the boss. He was a Turkey. The Turkey was very expensive in this town. But in December you can get 30% discount. The turkey went to its room. Only his room was big and comfortable with hay. The owners gave Turkey a gun because they might be jealous and kill the Turkey. Every body thought he was the king if the animals because he looked very powerful and expensive. Pig shouted, “Hello my Lord.”

Turkey didn’t even cared what pig said. But no one said Turkey is boasting or naughty because, the owner loved Turkey and always fatten the Turkey. For Turkey he was a king. Other animals were slaves. They thought it was unfair especially the Rabbit because before Turkey came, he was the boss.

Christmas was coming it was all snowy and white. Everybody was cold except for the Turkey. Turkey had blankets and also pillow. Turkey had its own big room and more hay to make the turkey to feel good. Other animals were using room together. The room was little smaller than Turkey’s, but it was still small to have 5 animals to stay together. Turkey’s room also had a glass window to look at the sky. He also had an iron door to keep the other animals out, but the other animals didn’t even have the window or a door. But they had fence gate.

It was a day before Christmas Eve. Pig suggested to give the Turkey a Christmas present. He will going to give him his softest hay. Pig was first wondering to give or not. He was the someone who made hay soft. It took four years to made this soft hay. At last he decided to give Turkey the present. Pig had two reasons for that. He thought the Turkey was lord and also Turkey will leave this house on tomorrow’s evening.

Rabbit peeked at the room at 3 o’clock in the morning. It was Christmas Eve. The owner and his wife were talking about the Turkey. The owner and his wife will eat the Turkey today’s evening. Rabbit went to Turkey’s room. He was in sleep. Rabbit woke the Turkey. He told to Turkey that he would be eaten soon. Turkey he didn’t wanted to believe it. Suddenly, he thought about his brother Turkeiy, humans were also eaten his brother too. At Christmas Eve and today is Christmas Eve.

Turkey had to leave this house. Turkey got a gun in his pocket. The pig will distract the owners. The cow will break the fence. The Rabbit will have to be bodyguard of Turkey. They had to be like James Bond. They made it!

Even though Turkey had gone, there was still boss. This time it wasn’t Rabbit it was the pig. It means the Rabbit got nothing…
