Author's comment: I think out of all the stories I wrote as a child, this one along with The test were the worst... But especially this one, it deserves to be thrown in the garbage right now. It's so bad I definitely changed minor details to make it less whiney, gosh!!! How irritating! What in the world could posses me to write such a horrible and ungrateful story at the age of 10? I feel like I took it too far, and a hay bed? Seriously. The story just makes zero sense. Oh, but I remember the day I wrote this. I was 10 and at the Doctor's waiting room. You all have no idea the vexation being at waiting rooms always caused me as a kid but that specific Dr was THE WORST!!! Oh and disclaimer I'm the youngest but me and my sister are only 1.5 year apart so this sorta thing never happened at home. You know I hated this story so much I almost stopped re-writing it but that just isn't like me so I kept going! So if you bother to read this let me know! lol. Am I overreacting?
There once was a girl named Dena whose parents always got her whatever toys or things she wanted. One day she learned that soon she would have a baby sister! This made her very happy because she would have someone to play with now.
Her sister, Meggie, was born on April and by May she realized that having a little sister was not a good thing. Thanks to her now she couldn’t get whatever she wanted when she wanted it, plus no one paid attention to her. Everything was all about the baby now…
But of course that wasn’t the only problem. Dena also had a fourteen-year-old sister, Grace. Who still got whatever she wanted when she wanted it. Meggie found both Grace and Meggie incredibly annoying; especially Meggie because she was always making a mess. One day Meggie broke one of their mother’s fancy fine china vases but their mom thought Dena had done it and that she was blaming her little sister.
- “Dena, you insolent child! Clean that up before someone gets hurt and go to your room!”
After her mom was done yelling at her Meggie looked at Dena and made a mocking face. This made Dena really upset so she yelled at her little sister:
- “Meggie, you’re dumb and this is all your fault!
After seeing Dena with such an attitude her mother slapped her and Dena ran to her room crying.
One day Dena came home after school and to her big surprise her room was empty. Only her clothes remained and her bed had been replaced with hay. She sat on her bed and started to cry. She could hear happy voices downstairs. They were celebrating a party for Grace and Meggie with lots of gifts and goodie bags! But that didn’t matter to her, all she was interested in was knowing what had happened to all her stuff. She looked around the house and realized her sisters had split her things!
Dena decided to go downstairs to complain but at that same moment Meggie dropped the cake from the table and blamed it Dena. Meggie was a rotten two year old baby by now. Dena just went back to her room before her mother could yell at her again.
Now the end of the school’s semester had come and summer was about to start so the school was holding family activity for the students and their families. Each student had to bring something to share with the rest. Dena told her mom but she told her to buy whatever she had to take herself and that she could go alone if she wanted to go. Luckily Dena found a $5.00 bill on the street and with it she bought some snacks to share with the rest. The day of the activity finally arrived, sadly it was raining. Dena asked her mom to take her but her mom told her to walk. Dena left.
After a while it stopped raining and everyone was able to go outside and enjoy the outdoor activities. Suddenly Dena saw her mom and her sisters they all felt bad for what they had done, even two-year-old Meggie! They also brought her gifts and they all became a happy family again!
Author's comment: I'm pretty sure I was twelve when I wrote this story. This one actually had an unexpected outcome. Kinda, I guess... lol! As for the drawing I uesd Sai, I tried making it more painted looking this time with lots of brush strokes but you know! Oh well, enjoy the story feel free to comment!
Ava was a twelve year old girl who misbehaved so much on last day of school that her mother decided to punish her. This hurt Ava’s pride so much she decided to leave home that night and come back a week later.
That night, after leaving through the window she entered a very dark forest, luckily she had a flashlight. But whoops! When she got deep into the forest it ran out of power… Now she was scared, really scared. So she tried to start a fire but to no avail. She had no option but to fall asleep on the ground.
The next morning Ava woke up because she felt something on her face. It was an elf.
-“Oh hello there little dwarf, what are you doing on my face?” said Ava
-“I’m not a dwarf I’m elf, little girl. The name’s Elfys I’m a hundred years old. You?”
-“My name’s Ava, I’m twelve. Nice to meet you. Where am I?”
-“You are in an enchanted forest”
-“An enchanted forest?!”
-“Yes! I’ll be your guide through this forest, missy”
The elf took Ava to where all the other elves were and they all became friends. A group of elves brought her a hollow tree trunk as a gift. She was happy but wondering what it was for. They told her to look inside. They had turned it into a comfy bed just for her! All the elves loved her. Elfys suddenly asked her if she was going to stay with them forever but she explained to him that soon she’d have to go back to her parents.
-“Well I hope we can still be friends after you leave”-said Elfys.
The next day Elfys said to Ava: “I would like to ask you a favor”
-“What is it” said Ava
They walked until they stood in front of a black, old, abandoned castle.
“Ava, I need you to enter the castle and battle whoever lives inside. Don’t let him come outside”
“Uh… oh… o.k…”
That night Ava went into the castle. She was quite surprised. For the inside looked nothing like the outside. It was almost completely pink and it had very good lighting. She suddenly saw a blonde girl in a dress.
-“Uh, oh… yeah. Hi, why are the elves afraid of you?” asked Ava
-“Because I’m a princess and they think I’ll force them to be my slaves” said the girl
-“Oh my gosh! You are a princess?! No way!!!”
-“Yeah, but I don’t go out anymore because of the elves”
-“Then we have to go outside together and show them you’re a good person!”
-“But I’m afraid! What if they don’t believe us?!”
-“They will. Please, I need you to do this! It’s really time for me to go back home!”
-“You ran away from home, didn’t you?”
-“Uh, um… yeah but now I know that it was wrong and I really wanna go back home…”
Together the girls went outside and showed the elves that what they had been thinking was nothing but a myth. Before Ava went back home, she asked the princess: “Why is your castle black?”
-“Oh, I love black!” the princess replied
Afterwards she went back home, where she finally met with her worried parents and promised them to never run away from home again.
Author's comment: I wrote this one when I was 12! I was getting old!! I sure wrote a lot when I was a kid! This story is bit more irrational than the others. This time instead of a drawing I decided to go for a picture! I made the footsteps with black foamy!
Olivia Theresa was Carly’s baby sitter. Carly was a very spoiled little girl. Her mother, Lavonne, was a workaholic so she had a lot of money. One day Carly wondered off from her babysitter, when Olivia finally found her, she scolded her and told her to never do it again. Carly answered back. This made Olivia so angry she actually slapped Carly’s hand. When Carly’s mother arrived that night Carly told her everything. So Lavonne fired Olivia. Olivia left quietly but she was sure to hold a grudge.
A year later
Olivia decided it was time for revenge. In order to do this she contacted her friends Mequer, Anklet and Alejandro. When they arrived at Carly’s house Mequer was the first one to go in. She noticed that Carly was by herself, she didn’t have a baby sitter, so she gave the others the signal to go inside. Mequer took care of the kidnapping while the other two took all the money they could from the house and stuffed it in their briefcases. Carly tried to run away, but to no avail.
However these robbers were not very clever, for they didn’t notice the house was full of hidden cameras. When Lavonne arrived home and saw her little girl was missing she decided to see what the cameras had captured. Lavonne saw everything that had taken place. So she hired four detectives to get her daughter and her money back.
The first thing the detectives did after watching the tape from the cameras, was to interview the neighborhood. Only one of the neighbors, Mrs. Kittredge, had seen something strange. Some days ago she had seen a thin woman lurking about Carly’s home. Then yesterday, the day of the kidnapping, she saw her again. She had also seen a mysterious black car with three people, one of them looked just like Carly’s old baby sitter.
The next step the detectives took was to go pay Olivia a visit. Lavonne told them how to get there. When they got there they looked through the windows and they saw the little girl in one of the rooms and in another Olivia and the others counting money. The detectives went in by force took the child and the money and returned it all to Lavonne. As for Olivia, Mequer, Anklet and Alejandro they went to jail for what they did.
Author's Comment: THis was actually one of my own favorite stories as a kid, lol. I wrote this when I was 10. Hope you like it, let me know what you think!
Once upon a time there two best friends, Tilda and Dannin. They were 10 years old. They would always spend the day together. They’d go to the river, they’d climb trees and they would pretend they were rich princesses.
However, one day the fun was over. Tilda got very sick, to the point she was bed ridden. Dannin was doing her best to take care of her but Tilda mostly just slept. So while she was sleeping Dannin wrote her a princess story. When Tilda woke up she read her the story and Tilda loved it!
A week passed and Tilda was still sick so Dannin thought she really should go get her some sort of medicine or someone who could help. So far Tilda’s parents had been waiting for Tilda to heal with home-made remedies because they were too poor to afford a doctor. However Dannin could tell these remedies weren’t working. There was something missing. So Dannin left on journey to find whatever was, that could help her friend Tilda.
As she was walking, she overheard to people arguing. When the two people saw her they stopped. The people arguing were two girls around Dannin’s age. One of them was called Lorinda, she had a terrible temper and snapped at Dannin: “What are you doing here? Go away, eavesdropper”. The other girl, Sharlotte told Lorinda: “Don’t be so mean!” and then asked Dannin some questions to get to know her better. So Lorinda left angrily. Dannin and Sharlotte ignored her and Sharlotte asked Dannin:”So what brings you here, to these woods?” “Well I have a sick friendand I want her to get better so I thought I could find something that could help her, but I don’t know what…” –answered Dannin. Afterwards they discussed Tilda’s symptoms. “Hmmm, I think I can help you. Follow me!” said Sharlotte. Dannin, feeling relieved followed Sharlotte. Lorinda also followed them, so she could tell her mom she had helped someone in the woods. But in the meantime she just mocked them and made fun of them. When the three arrived in front of a tree Sharlotte told her that the fruit from that tree would cure her friend! Dannin stuffed her pockets with the fruit, thanked them and left running.
When she finally got home she made Tilda some juice with the fruit and gave it to her to drink. After drinking it for a week she was all better and they were able to go outside and play together again!
