Did anyone steal the short story place? (Unless someone reserved that for me, -lucky- AHEM FORTUNATE me then, i guess)
I have it!
For Han's and K's eyes only
I was walking on a midnight dreary, just kidding. Me and my two friends Everly and Jasper were walking down to my grandparents house this morning. Well, the thing is, my grandparents literally live ‘Over the river and through the wood’. they’re not to far away from civilization, but it's a good thirty minute walk down the dirt path. As we were walking, Jasper said “So, wanna hear a spooky story? It is October.” Woah, woah, woah, I completely forgot introductions! My name is Josephine. Joe, for short. Me and my two friends have known eachother since first grade. We’re fifteen, now. Our families aren’t big on halloween. Witches and Demons are one of the things that is banned in all three of our households. And none of us mind it! Because we made a new tradition, we had a three-day-long sleepover every halloween. It was always super fun and spooky! Well, now that you know that, back to the present. I shifted the backpack over my shoulders in a more comfortable position. Jasper and Eve followed suit. Everly squinched her eyebrows together, but nodded stiffly. I nearly bounced up and down. “Yes, please!” said I. Jasper cleared his voice and began,
“So, I actually learned about this legend today. I looked up legends about this area so it would be more interesting.”
Me and Everly ‘Ooh’ed.
“Anywho, this is the legend of the G’Lynn. The G’Lynn are faery people, that used to live in jungles before they came here. It is said that they were driven away by their greedy king who wanted all the gold and land for himself. He even kicked out his wife. The G’Lynn were anything but happy about this, so they took it out on plants.”
Everly and I started to crack up. “They took it out on plants? How scary!” I said, wiping away a tear. Jasper grinned, “Hold on, I’m getting to the good part. So-” “Hold on, hold on!” Everly finally burst. “Can I tell part of this story too? I’ve heard of G’Lynn!”. Me and Jasper were speechless. Every year, we tried to find a story or
legend that topped the rest. That no one else knew about. Jasper was the winner every year. “You knew about it?” I said, a grin spreading across my face. “Your reign of power is over my king! We banish you!” I shoved a smirking Jasper off the path. “Nice job Eve! Hopefully next year I’ll beat you again.” I shoved him a second time. He fell over. Me and Eve laughed hard at this. Jasper put a pouty expression on his face. “Don’t treat me like that! I’ll take it out on a fern!” We all started to laugh. A few minutes later, when we all finally calmed down, I helped Jasper and Eve to their feet. “Let's go! Nana's cookies’ll get cold!” At this, we sped down the rest of the driveway and up to the house. “May I finish the story now, my queens?” Jasper bowed with a grin. “Yes, my fair servant.” Eve finished. Jasper snatched the hat off her head, “Your hat hath been taken, my queen!” He took off before he tripped over a stump and face planted into the ground. I promptly fell to the ground snickering. Eve did, too. I tried to recuperate, when I saw a tall, spindly figure dart in between two trees. My laughter died in my throat. “Did you see that?” I mumbled. Jasper stood up with stiff knees, and handed Everly her hat. “Saw what? It was probably a racoon.” Eve nodded. “There are a lot of animals around here, maybe it was one of those?” I shook my head. “It was tall, and skinny. It looked like a human.” Jasper shrugged. Eve shook her head. She was always the sensible one. “Joe, it was probably a tree’s shadow, or an animal, or even your imagination for that matter. Lets just go inside.”
(Here's hoping that worked!)
You can make it shorter, if you want. Or longer! I can post more.
(A part is kinda violent tho. But it's only someone reading a violent tale, not the real story. The real story as it goes on isn't nearly as violent.)
