Fall (synechonoche)

Fall. Leaves floating every where you look. Changing color very very slowly. falling and falling like a feather in a sky. Going where ever the wind takes them. The crisp sound of the crunch of stepping on them. The giggling of kids jumping in them having the fun. too soon the leaves disappear until the next fall.

anger letter

Dear  family,
       I love you guys with all my heart but sometimes i have the feeling you don't love me back. Dad you are the worse offender of that. i know your not the guy to show affection to us but would it kill you just to say i love you. i feel like you love only brian. I don't blame you for liking brian better i mean he is the superstar. The baseball prodigy and what the hell am i but a mediocre basketball player. Dad i hate that you never tried to go to my basketball games. it killed me, i used to always look for you in the bleachers but i never aw you. Yet you have the all the time in the world to go to brian's games. You say you have work but yeah dad you have work during baseball season but yet you find the freaking time to go to his games and not mine. That hurts. I feel like i'm pushed aside like a piece of trash that people don't care about. Like no one cares about me. The only thing that matters to you is stupid baseball. Really i live baseball too but i hate how you, (dad) don't care. Brian always have the newest things and there is me with my four year old crap . You have spoiled that kid rotten with all the stupid crap. he doesn't know how money really comes from. You gave hoim the notion that money never stops coming. Well news flash we got bills to pay and i have seen mom worries about the bills, but you still go on your spending sprees and don't care. brian is too freaking cocky, dad you caused that. You made his head so big on the idea that no one is better than him. You always take Brian's side no matter what and to be honest i can't belive how much of a jerk you are. You always side with him you never stick up for me and when i do you just tell me to  shut up. I sometimes feel like if i just disappeared i wouldn't be missed at all. Mom is the only one that understands, but sometimes she doesn't none of you guys do. You guys don't understnad how much stress i deal with in a everday basis. School work is one of my major stress things. You don't understnad how i study much, how i have so much homework then other people. I need to do this because i don't think like an average person. You guys should know. i went to sylvan in second grade because i was slower then all the other kids. I need to do this to keep my grades A's and B's.wrighting this has somehow made me feel better, but i know you guys will never see this and it pins me knowing that. I doubt you even care you would just deny it all saying i'm overreacting i'm not. This is what i see and know for a fact.
     Sincerely, Your sister/ daughter

The Christmas Miracle (timed prompt)

It was Christmas Eve. Fog stuck to the tarmac at Lingbergh Field. Aunt Mariah and Grandma Rose are bickering about who the hell knows. While they bickered my uncle Peter and Grandpa  Joe were talking to the receptionist about an alternative route to New York. My mom and Dad must be worried out of their mind. The kids were whining and tugging at our clothes saying Santa Clause wouldn't find them there while my uncle Tim was passed out on the floor. This has got to be the worst Christmas Eve ever. The snow piled up outside making all my hopes fell that very moment when uncle peter and Grandpa came back with grim expressions  all over their faces.
      "All the planes are delayed until the snow can stop. Sorry honey looks like we won't make it home to see your baby sister born after all." My grandpa explained with sadness in his eyes. I nodded my head fighting back tears. This is the only thing I want. To see my baby sister get born. I can't believe it I'm going to miss my baby sister's birth. We all sit down not saying anything. I pick up my four year old cousin and fall asleep to the sound of my everyone crying.
   "Quick wake up honey!" I was jerked awake by my Cousin Ryan. I glance up and there is this guy. He looks like he just did an all nighter, he was tall with a full bearded. He had bags under his eyes and looked like he was about to drop, but he still agreed to give us  ride home. 
            "This man said he can give us a ride on his plane to the New York. Beatrice we are going to make it sweetie." I laugh with happy tears streaming down my face.  I ran up to the guy and thanked him for helping me have my wish come true. In an hour we were all  at the hospital. It was exactly twelve o'clock when my baby sister was born. I forgot about everything else but my sister when she looked at me. Her blue eyes stared at me in awe. I'm her older sister now, the one to protect her, the one to help her through life. This is the best Christmas gift ever. All I have to thank is that man. He was tired and wanted to go home but he gave us a lift still. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here. Thank you Mr. plane guy. Thank you for everything. Have a Merry Christmas, you sure deserve it.

     PS: The author said that when she gave her student this prompt she said that almost all wrote about bad things like death, and violence. I don't agree with her, I wrote a prompt and it was happy ending nothing  bad happened. No one died or had violence. Not all people write violence when they read this prompt.

The chosen one ( Short fiction)

     "Welcome to Camp Demigod!" The guy screamed in my ears before i blacked out from exhaustion. I've been to the camp for about a week and it has been living hell.

      " Ow! What was that for?" I rubbed my head.  I just got to this stupid camp and  still trying to grasp the idea my father wasn't who I thought he was. My father is a greek god, yeah I know hard to  believe my father wasn't human.
      "Come on Dork we need to get to sword practice or we have to clean the pegasus' stables for a week." The beef guy shoves me in front of him again.
      "Hey! One my name is Jordan Thompson and two I need to get my sword so EXCUSE ME!" I was now in his face. I know I'll probably get beat up but i don't care. I'm sick of people pushing me around.
      " You little-..."
   " Um... guys break it up. I'll take him to his cabin and Jeff, you can go to practice." said a beautiful angel with amazing blonde hair and baby blue eyes that you can get lost in. Wait a minute what just happened. all I remember is she who ever she is yanking me into my cabin. "Don't worry about him he is just trying to show his authority. He gets that from his father, but really he is real nice guy after you get to know him." She sticks out her hand, a huge jagged scar broke the surface of her pale hand. She doesn't seem to be fazed that i'm staring at her scar. Something about the hand gave me weird feeling so i didn't shake it. She got the message and dropped her hand somehow nonchalant about it.
           " My name is Izzy. My mother is Aphrodite, you know the goddess of love." She curls her hair around her finger. She is biting her lips from giggling i just know it. Oh god how did i get into this situation. I feel like a magic blanket fall over me. I somehow had the odd sensation to listen to her to never leave her and I-.
      " Mr. Jordan your missing swords class!" Yelled Mr. Sniden. He was satlking towards us like he was about to beat me to the ground. He gave Izzy a weird look like he knew something we didn't. He grabs me rather harshly i may add and we walk towards the building rather fast. "She's trouble Jordan don't get near her. I don't quite know what she is up to but i do know that its bad."

        "Damn it if that stupid teacher didn't come  I would of have him." He was so close of touching my hand if he did he would of been charmed." I kneeled down in front of the mistress " I'm sorry my lady I was unable to lure the chosen one out of the camp."
       " Thats okay my dear. You must try harder, the teachers might think your up to something, but they won't do anything. Now off with you child. Make sure you get the son of Zeus before he finds out who he is. He is still very weak we may have a chance. be gone child and don't come back without him."

 The chosen one is super cute only if i wasn't trying to kill him i might actually give him a chance.
    " Dude, i swear when you got back to class the teacher was different, he didn't attack you as good as he could have!" Jeff said. Me and him are buddy buddy i guess. I rubbed my body i'm pretty sure there will be bruises there tomorrow. " Yeah, well lucky me i guess."
       Hi, Jordan would you like to go to Pegasus point with me and i'll show you my new archery skills. They are pretty awesome and maybe i'll teach you some new moves." she was full out flirting with me. I have this weird feeling though. "Nah i'm good Izzy i promised the guys i would play hoops with them." Phew that was close.
     " I didn't  know you told the guys you would play with them? asked a confused Jeff.
    " I didn't i just said it so i could get away from her. Something about her freaks me out.
   Stupid, stupid i should of waited for him to be alone then i can get him. Aha there he is ready hmm oh maybe i should hide behind that tree yeah, then i can knock him out.
     I can't get her out of my head maybe if i walk near the forest my bain would actually function. Ooh look a flute one of the satyrs must of dropped it. "Wha-..."
      Urg. my head hurts what the hell happened?
         "Yes my lady i have the chosen one he is currently unconscious but he should wake up soon.
        " Good job Izelica, i'm sure your mother would be proud.
    "Proud? Please she wouldn't be, she only cares about her hair!"
    " Very true my dear. That is all i needed. Go train the other demigods while i deal with him.
      " What the hel-" i was cut of by the mysterious lady.
     " Please don't  swear in my castle young man!" Oh my god she is a goddess. oh crap is it insulting to say god in front of a goddess. which goddess is it come on rack your head dumby.
      " If you haven't figured my name out yet it is Hera. Yes my child the wife of Zeus."
" What do you want with me?"
    " Oh i want you for the greatest thing in the world, I'm going to kill you my child. Your father deserves it after cheating on me.
      Wait she can't mean-. "My father is zeus? Thats impossible my teachers said Poseidon, Hades and Zeus made a oath to never go after humans again! Your lying and kill me? what for?"
    "Your right my child they did. But atlast my husband doesn't listen. Izzy is an example of his idiotic behaviors. He cheated on me and dated Aphrodite for a little bit. I felt sorry for the child so I recruited her. Yes kill you it will show Zeus he can't be sneaking around and thinking i wouldn't find out.
" You mean she tricked me."
"Yes she did sweetie and it is time to die my child".
"Wait if i'm zeus' child, I can fight you!"
      " You can't beat me child. Your a weakling your nothing but a bastard child and  i'm a  goddess!."
    " Oh, you just watch lady i got this sword here and i'm not afraid to use it."
" Come here you little-"
" Hahha you can't catch me! your too big to grab me. OOH there is an escape door yes oh and yes rocks.
" Hey Hera how much do you like rocks because your about to be rocked by a puny demigod." I throw tons of rocks and i run for my life. Wait this is a five story building i can't jump i'll die. What the hell maybe i can fly hopefully i don't die.
oh god i hope i make out of this alive!"
"Why the heck am I called the chosen one ?

Jess: Well.. um… I kind of broke up with him like oh I don’t know… a year ago!

Nancy: WHAT! You told me you had a date with him yesterday!

Jess: Yeah umm well I lied because I know how you are. You will be pressing me to find a guy. My dad is the same way. Almost every friday, he has one of his work buddies bring their son for dinner. I hate it their so yucky!

Nancy: You do need to get married though. its been four year since Eric's death. you’ve have to start  finding a husband.

Jess: I’m fine. I love single life. I wouldn’t like to settle down yet and yes, i know he died that long ago but we were married for a year and i can't just let him go. He died so sudden, i can't believe he's gone.

Nancy: I know its been hard for you, but come on Jess you’re not going to be young forever!(elbowing her friend playfully) I mean look I’m already getting gray hair. GRAY HAIR! I’m so old!

Jess: Your so pretty Nanc, you don’t have to care about age. Mac loves you just the way you are.

Jess: Okay, You better not be setting something up again. I’m not going to have another date with your cousin Jeff. He creeps me out.

Nancy: Oh, don’t worry none of that. Just a night out with your best friend.(she hugs her best friend and goes in the opposite direction)

                                                Jess enters the restaurant. Hoping to see her best friend waiting for her)

Jess: Hi, I’m looking for my friend have you seen her, my name is Jessica Murphy. (Asking the receptionist)

Waitress: Yes, right this way Ms. Murphy.(walk to the table) Oh! My he’s a cute one!Good luck.(she whispers and winks at her before she leaves)

Jess: Umm…. I think I have the wrong table so…

Cody: (overlapping) No you’re in the right place. Hi I’m Cody, Nanc’s step brother.

Jess: So you’re telling me she set me up with another one of her family relatives. (Sigh) You must think I’m a loser. Your sister makes you go on a date with her best friend who has no life. Cody, you don’t have to do this. I’ll just g-

Cody: (over lapping) No it’s okay I’m actually the one who gave her the idea. I want to have this date.

Jess: well umm…okay. If you say so. (sitting down at table)I’m so going to kill Nancy for this and she can’t blame her hormones on this one for sure.

Cody: Yeah, sis can be like that sometimes.

Jess: So your Nanc’s step brother. I never knew. I’ve been her friends for ten years and yet I still didn’t know she had a brother.

Cody: she found out she had a step brother six months ago. I came to her house out of the blue. She ran up baby bump and all and hugged me.

Jess: ( laughs and wipes a tear from her eye). That sounds like nanc .

Cody: Yeah, why is Nanc so adamant about you dating?

Jess: She’s just worried about me.  After my husband Eric died from cancer, she has been trying for me to start dating again . Its been four years and I haven't dated anyone but people from Nanc's family. Which is quite embarresssing by the way!She says I have to marry soon. She just wants me to be happy like her.

Cody: I'm sorry Jess, i didnt know. What was Eric like?

Nancy: He was the nicest man ever. the old saying "the good always dies young" ring a bell when ever I think about him. It's been hard with out him.

Cody: I'm glad you stayed for dinner then. I'm sorry you must be still grieving him. I'm such an idiot. You probably want nothing to do with me.

Nancy: Not true at all. I'm not grieving over him anymore. Your not an idiot either, you didn't know.(grabs his hand ) I would love to enjoy time with you.

                Cody payed for dinner and drove her home. They are talking in front of her house.

Jess:  I had a lovely time Cody.Much better than cousing Jeff, i had a date with two weeks ago. Call me when Nancy has her baby.

Cody: yeah, I will. Eww! You had to go out with smelly Jeff. Looks like i don't got much competition then.

Jess: Yeah, don't remind me of those dates. They were quite traumatizing experience for me.

Cody: Would you like to go out next friday night?

Jess: I would like that a lot. Cody thanks for everything. Tonite has been… amazing. I can’t wait for next Friday. Good night Cody, i'll be counting the days till our next date.

feedback for peers

Chris C. Fat is fun, I loved the title because first of all it is so true. I loved the writing piece because I can really relate to what people think about big people. They really do think big people are stronger and it is kind of ridiculous. I also like eating my food too I'm not the type to eat an apple for lunch and be not hungry. I also play basketball and I'm a center so all I do is basically make sure no one scores. Everyone used to always call me a wall in basketball because no one could get by me. I think your post is awesome. I can relate in so many ways.

Abby Martin, unreliable narrator, I believe it was great. The way she did the point of view made it feel like Todd was the bystander than the killer. It made you have to think about Todd's point of view and what he did, was the right thing. I thought your blog was great.

Jessica neuwfell, The dark side, I love the irony and almost foreshadowing in the beginning of the post. She was about to kill herself and then in the end he dies. Its kind of sad in a way because it was her best friend. It is so sad but also so good. I thought it was so sad that she still went to their spot even though he passed away. It was foreshadowing because in the beginning she was about to kill herself if it wasn't for Lucas she would have, but because lucas wasn't there to stop her she killed herself. I thought it was sad, but so good.
