Land of the Crystal
Prologue: School- Through My Eyes
Ding,Ding,Ding, I woke up I mumbled, “Another day of school.”
I got up, I got dressed,ate, and went out the door. I ran to school. The first thing I do at school is do class reading. That’s my favorite thing to do at school. Yesterday I got done with a book called School of Fear. Today I’m reading, Land of the Crystal.
The teacher said, “Pick a partner.”
No one picked me that was a cool kid. I was a kid that didn’t like sports like other kids did. I liked reading, music and art just like my friend Leo. We were partners to read, so we started to read.
Chapter 1 The Book-Through the Eyes of Caroline
It started like this: The wind was blowing the ocean was hitting the shore hard. The crystal came out of the rock. The next morning five islands were on fire the ash was blowing in the black smoky air. Six weeks later the article said, “The island called Plate is going to get destroyed. Somebody needs to get the crystal in the rock.” I said proudly “I will! I will sneak out tonight.”
Chapter 2 Out in the Dark- Through the Eyes of Caroline
Two hours later I creeped down the creaky stairs and out the window. I fell in the bushes. I crawled over the fence and around the small pond and to the ocean. At the ocean beach a long time ago I made a cave. I made boats out of scraps I found at the beach and in the boats they had food in them. The cave was made with big boulders that I moved from the tractor that was my dad’s. Then I picked the biggest boat and off I went.
Chapter 3 The Boat Ride- Through the Eyes of Caroline
Five hours later I was really far so far that everything was blue. I felt like I was on a giant big blueberry. After a while I picked up a magazine from a basket. The magazine was called Can of Worms. Five hours later I ate a sandwich and after that I found an island that was filled with trees. The trees were as green as a green apple and the sand was full with sea shells.
Chapter 4 The Island -Through the Eyes of Golem
Caroline went to the island and went up the hill and by the tree. She thought that she saw something. It looked like a man. Caroline went to a tree that was closer and found out what it was. She asked, “Are you hungry?”
He looked weird, and he was dirty. He
Caroline said, “Let’s go to the boat.”
They went to the boat. They both ate an apple. Before they knew it, the boat was at the reef of the ocean because the wind blew it away. The guy was not sad that he left his home. Caroline was wondering, Why are you not sad?
Then she had the guts to ask, “What’s your name? Aren’t you sad you’re away from your house?”
The man said,“My name is Golem and I don’t like my home.”
Caroline asked,“Why not?”
He answered,”Because the food is disgusting,there’s hurricanes, zombies that come at night, and my house stinks! It’s messy too!”
Chapter 5 The Fight-Through the Eyes of Golem
Twenty minutes later there was a storm.But it stopped immediately. Then there were two boats throwing knives, spears, and grenades. A spear flew past my head.Soon a fire started. There was ash that was floating in the air.
I said, “They are Goolees. That’s how I got my name. The boat with the red is bad because they are trying to take the crystal.”
Then Caroline said,“That’s what we are trying to get.”
So Caroline can put it back into the rock and save the day but Caroline needs to do it in time so Caroline can save Plate.
Golem said,“You better do it before they do and today is your lucky day because I know where the Crystal is.”
Chapter 6 The Death- Through the Eyes of Caroline
“It is in the underworlddddddddddddddddddaaa!” A Golee threw a spear right through his head.
Caroline said with tears in her eyes, “Talk to me. Please, no I’m begging you. I need to know where the Crystal is.”
Golem answered with red droopy eyes,“There will be other golees on the way.”
I threw him off the boat because I knew he would stink. After that the goolees went away. But I just thought of sharks, it would attract him.
After a while I felt a bump on the boat. It got harder and harder and stopped. Then it did it really hard. I fell and rolled on the side of the boat. One leg went off then another and then all the shoulder. Down then I held on but then a foot got tugged under the water. It was the shark. Then the shark took my shoe, then shot back into the water. I tried to get back into the boat but the shark brought me into the water again.
Chapter 7 In the Water-Through the eyes of Caroline
My nose hit the side of the boat,and it was bleeding. Then the shark dropped me and went away. But then something flew after it. It was blue. I remembered my dad told me the top of the food chain is the Dark Blue. Those things will eat sharks, but after that yes they will have a couple of marks. If it is a shark that is good at fighting, then it would leave a lot of deep marks. They fought the shark, bit the Dark Blue, then the Dark Blue turned and bit the shark right in the fin. Then the shark went back for another move and bit the Dark Blue in the neck. The Dark Blue took its tail and SMACK! Right in the face it got knocked out. If he woke up it would be too far away from the surface and die. It sunk slowly. It went into the dark blue ocean then soon I couldn’t see it. Then the Dark Blue was coming to me.
Chapter 8 Me and the Dark Blue Through the Eyes of Dark Blue
It grabbed me and put me on the boat and peeked his bloody face at me. It had a human head. All the rest was all blue, the three fins and his chest. Then it started to talk. “Did you see that?”
“WHAT? YOU CAN TALK ENGLISH?” Caroline yelled.
“YES I CAN SPEAK ENGLISH. AS I WAS SAYING, I just killed that shark. I love being at the top of the food chain.”
Caroline said slowly, “Yeah ok, um, I’m looking for the Crystal.”
The Dark Blue interrupted, “I know where it is. Take a left in a quarter of a mile, then take another left. I’m just kidding. Follow me. You’re really close if you follow me. Everything will be alright this way.”
Soon we were in a dark cave and I heard “drip,drip,drip”. A few seconds later I heard, “Aaaaahhhhhhh! Please don’t Kill me!”
I got out of my boat and tiptoed by the rock. It was a golee, and it was demanding to tell him where his boat was. Then I tiptoed over to the golee and picked him up and went back to the boat and threw him in the ocean. Then I went to the guy and asked him if he was hungry. He and I went to the boat and a bird was eating my food so I shooed him away.
We started to eat then I told him about what I’m trying to get. In the middle of a sentence the water was moving and then it was the Dark Blue fighting the golee. Sadly, the Dark Blue was damaged more from the shark. At least the golee had lost.
After that, yes I had a few tears because the next fight he would be done for. Then the guy that I saved started to talk, “You know the Crystal is here if you follow me you’ll find it.” He had a stupid accent.
Chapter 9 Looking For the Crystal- Through the Eyes of Fred
Then he lead me to a father cave and there was a portal to the underworld. It was really dark. He asked, “Can you help me make this fire? It’s dark.”
Then Caroline went to the fire and helped keep the stick up to a shape of a teepee. After that the fire was up. Finally there was some light so we went more down into the underworld farther. There it was! The Crystal!
There were two Golees on the phone in the background. “Have you found the Crystal?”
The golees said,”ya.”
Then Caroline snuck to the Crystal and got the Crystal. The golees saw her. They started to chase Caroline out to the portal and out of the underworld with Fred. Then went away but then the Golees fell in the water. The boat went right over the Dark Blue.
The Dark Blue was fighting with the Golees. We left them both. We never knew how we would win from that damage to the Dark Blue from that shark. But at least we have the Crystal.
I said, “There is a big cloud it looks like there is a big storm coming to us.”
Thirty minutes later it was here. “LOOK! THERE IS A BIG WAVE COMING!!”
Four hours later I was on a island.
Chapter 10 Looking for the Rock-Through the Eyes of Fred
I was as hot as a potato that just came out of an oven. I got up. I walked to the ocean and kicked the water. Caroline got up by the boat and his face was amazed. He said in his stupid voice, “This is where the rock is.”
I went to the water and said,“Sorry.” Then I went to the boat to get the crystal. I followed Fred to the burnt forest and a few steps in the forest there was a little spot for the crystal. I put the crystal in then there was a big flash then the forest wasn’t burnt.
Chapter 11 At Camp- Through the Eyes of Caroline
After that we went to the boat.On the way there we both got a Coconut. It was getting dark so we talked to each other about where we will sleep. We agreed with each other we will sleep at the island. We got back out of the boat. We tied a sharp rock to a stick and carved a stick to a curved shape and cut a rope off the boat. Then I saw a monkey and used the bow to hit him right in the head, then he fell. I called Fred.
He came and said, “What? Wait, wow! Is that a monkey with an arrow in his head? Was that you?”
I saw him holding a bow. We drug it to a tree and built a fire. After a while we put a railing over the fire and on top of that the monkey was there roasting on top of the hot fire. We ate it, but it was not as good as I thought. We got up early to leave.
Chapter 12 The Hurricane- Through the Eyes of Caroline
We got in the boat and for a while we were quiet. Then I asked, “Do you know why it’s so dark?”
He did not answer. He just kept on reading his magazine. The waves got bigger and it was harder to steer. Finally Fred stopped looking at the magazine. The clouds grew bigger and more grey. The sky twisted above us. The wind began to blow harder. The waves were crashing against the boat. The hurricane was here. Fred went to the back of the boat, another wave hit the boat and Fred was thrown into the water. Fred gasped for air as the waves pulled him under. The salty water burned his eyes and throat. He struggled to keep his head above the water. Just as he began to sink, Caroline threw him a rope from the boat. He grabbed it with slippery hands and held on as tight as he could. He could feel the rope burning his hands as she pulled him to safety. He made it back on the boat and from being so tired. Caroline collapsed next to him and they drifted off to sleep as the boat rocked with the waves.
Chapter 13 Waking Up- Through the Eyes of Caroline
The boat sailed away with the wind with the sail ripped. I woke up coughing blood. I was still asleep next to Fred. Fred woke up. He got up and looked through all of my stuff and after a while Fred found crackers. Caroline woke up.
End of prologue
Then the teacher said, “Ok class, put your bookmarks in your books. It is time for specials.” We got up and lined up for P.E. At P.E. we played Capture the Flag. After that we ate lunch and I talked to Leo about what will happen next in the story. Four hours later we went home and we played a game that is called The Game.
