Feathers and Stones (original story) Chapter 5 Chapter 5 (Mandy) “Ya ready Tay?!”Tay stood in front of Jay in the middle of the cul-de-sac. She had a scythe, with a purple blade, in her hands. Jay made it for her with his powers after he finished, uh, recharging. But of course, with Tay, a normal scythe wouldn’t do and she wanted it customized.The two of them argued for like twenty minutes until Tay drew him a picture and listed a couple things she wanted her weapon to do. (Basically Jay can’t just make something with out a good image of it in his head). Of course she didn’t get everything she wanted, which is understandable because we don’t really need a laser shooting, Transformer scythe. She was a bit disappointed but accepted it anyways.AnywaysI watched Tay as she took a ready stance. “Ready!” she said.“Come at me!” Jay said also getting into a ready position.Tay ran towards him, scythe in hand, and swung the purple blade at Jay. He quickly jumped out of
Feathers and Stones (original story) Chapter 4 Chapter 4 (Tay)No. No no no! It’s too soon!I opened my eyes everything was blurry with tears. I could hear the soft sound of sobbing from Mandy as I embraced her.We’re too young for this Too young I tried to think of happy thoughts. Sandra’s party; it was tonight wasn’t it? I sighed and took my phone out and texted her.Hey can we reschedule the party?I carefully thought of what to say. I didn’t want to tell her what really happenedSomething came up and I can’t do it tonightI closed my eyes and sighed.“What are you doing with your phone?”I jumped at the strange, yet familiar, voice. I looked to where it came from to see the little goblin (Rex, I think was his name) that Minka was trying to catch earlier staring at me. He was in the trench next to Jay who was lying on the ground, hopefully just passed out.“I-I was just texting my frien-” I stuttered.“What did you tell her?!”
Feathers and Stones (original story) Chapter 3 Chapter 3 (Jay) “Where are we going?” I asked Rex, my goblin ‘pet’, though he’s not exactly a pet more like a parent or older brother. Yeah it’s complicated…He didn’t answer me, he just told me to make sure they weren’t following us. Oh, I should probably explain who ‘they’ are.We were just at this girl’s house, what was her name? Oh, right Mandy. We left a little after she whacked Rex with a frying pan. Yeah, he wasn’t too happy with that. Anyways, we left because Rex wanted to check on the- never mind I probably shouldn’t say, it’s kind of a secret (and Rex would literally kill me if I purposely gave it away)Anyways…I sighed and glanced back. We were a good distance from the house, but I could still see it sticking out of the trees. There was no one following us which was good.I looked back to Rex. “Why do we have to check the-” I started, he shush
Feathers and Stones (original story) Chapter 2 Chapter 2 (Minka) *scritch-scratch*I heard the scratching of what sounded like claws on the island counter in the kitchen. I crawled around, pot in hand, ready to catch. I peeked over the counter and saw the culprit of the scratching.On the counter was a small dog-like creature. But it wasn’t a dog, I’d say it was, what you would call, a goblin. It was gray with darker gray, almost black, spots on its back and head. It had long pointy ears and a lizard like tail. Also, it had sharp claws on its hands and feet.I watched the goblin as it rummaged through the cookie jar. What was it looking for? When it wasn’t looking I raised my pot to catch in. It saw me and tried to run right as I brought the pot down. It hit the counter with a loud bang. ‘Oh I really hope Mandy didn’t hear that!’ I thought, worried my older sister would come down and see what I was doing.“What was that?” I heard Tay, my sis’ friend, say from upstairs.
Feathers and Stones (original story) Chapter 1 Chapter 1 (Mandy)Dear Tay,Hey Tay! How’s it going in Florida? I heard it’s humid. I’ve been good although it’s a bit lonely with out you here :c My cousins came over to visit and lets just say I will never look at my teddy bear the same way again. I’ll explain that later, I have more important things to talk about! There’s a new kid in the neighborhood! I know crazy right?! We haven’t had a new neighbor since, well me. Anyways, he seems a bit…weird. Kinda like he’s hiding something and you know the rules: no secrets! (unless you have magical powers and if someone found out you and everyone who knows would be in a lot of danger) okay I’m being ridiculous, like anyone would have magical powers! but I still wanna find out what his little secret is! This could be life or death! I’ll keep a look out ‘til you get home on Sunday, then we can be the greatest detectives ever! (or probably the worst detectives ever
