The Brave Princess – Chapter 28

The Brave Princess

 

Chapter 28

 


‘No!! Noo!! Charelyyn! Come back!’ Alice shouted after the speeding van.

‘It’s not going to work, Alice. A little girl once took me into her car, but then threw me out the window. Nobody will take us.’ Olivia whispered sadly. Green tears started forming in her eyes, then overflowed and fell onto the ground.

Olivia decided that this was a great opportunity to turn Alice’s frown upside down. Olivia started shrieking, pretending that she thought the green tears (which were natural for a cross-breed like Olivia) was acid, or something bad.

Alice at first looked concerned, but then fell onto the ground, laughing. Olivia’s shouts turned into giggles, which turned into a mix of hiccups and laughter.


Lucy worked harder than ever, doing some more jobs from home, such as writing books, songs, poems, blogs, and much more things that even she was not sure what she was actually doing.

She got very few hours of sleep, and refused to have any kind of break during her working hours.


Scarlett and Maria soon got back to their senses, and stopped acting odd.

‘Who’s driving the van?’ Maria soon asked.

‘And what happened to Kimana? Maria, help me!’ Scarlett said, lifting Kimana – who had been rolling around the floor – onto the couch.

Maria came to help, and treated Kimana.

‘Who’s driving the van?’ Maria asked again, walking towards the front.

‘Dunno,’ Scarlett replied, picking up a magazine titled ‘The Dream Mag’ and sat down in an old, broken armchair to read it.


Alice and Olivia giggled for a long time more, until the giggles cooled off. The sun was setting, and passing cars became rare. The girls decided that they would walk the way that Charelyyn’s van went.

They walked until dark, and through part of the night. A truck had been chasing them very slowly, and had stopped right next to where Olivia and Alice were resting.

‘Alice! Quick! Jump onto the truck – it’s going in the same direction as we are!’ Olivia whispered, and scampered into a small box fixed to the side of the truck.

The truck let out a toot, and started moving. Alice hesitated, then jumped into the small box, and rode safely in the box next to Olivia.


Maria sighed, walking towards the front of the double story van and sat down next to Charelynn without realizing Charelynn was there.

‘Oh, hi Maria! I hope you don’t mind my bad driving – I’m very bad at it’ Charelyyn said, skidding around a green car.

‘Aghhh! What? Banana peels! Sipping orange milk! Slush coconuts! Ribs in my brain! Why is a ghost drivei- oh, it’s just you Charelyyn,’ Maria shouted, and picked up a Dream Mag Issue.

‘Sooo, you got around your madness?’ Charelyyn asked Maria.

‘What madness?’ Maria roared at her.


After all of her jobs were finished in town, and wrote out all of the things she had to, Lucy went back to town and chose out a small car, as she had made far more money than she had planned to.

She chose a silver Rambler car for just over 50 thousand dollars. Another thousand dollars went towards buying food, blankets and other necessities, then she packed her bags, filled the fuel tank up and left one of her good friends and coworkers (as she was on break from her work at The Havoc Hotel, and had quit all her other jobs), Malissa, in charge of the Havoc Hotel while she was away. She made sure she had all the phone numbers she needed, and bought three extra phones and a tablet and put all of the numbers in them in case she lost or broke the first one, and any of the others.

Lucy set off towards the Hollos’ Palace in search of Alice and her family.


The truck rumbled on for hours, and Alice and Olivia fell asleep…..

When Alice woke up at the crack of dawn the next day, and saw a familiar sign reading The Havoc Hotel. Alice tried to wake Olivia up, but by the time her eyes opened the truck was long gone from the hotel.

The girls’ eyes soon blurred and they fell back asleep. And their eyes stayed closed for another day…..


‘Nevermind,’ Charelyyn muttered, finally driving a little smoother.

‘Thought so, silly,’ Maria said under her breath so Charelyyn would not hear.

‘Maria, have you found what you are looking for yet?’ Scarlett shouted, walking towards the front of the van. She sat on Maria’s lap and gasped.

‘Look! Look forwards! It’s, it’s….’ Scarlett said, breathlessly and pointed forwards.

‘Oh, my, it’s… it’s The Havoc Hotel!’ Maria said brethlessly……

The hotel was coming into sight in the distance…………


 

 

 

~~~~~~End Of Chapter 28~~~~~~

Harry Potter

In case you do not  know about Harry Potter, or have not read the books, I will tell you what they are about.

BOOK 1:HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE.  Harry lives in Privet Drive, with his awful aunt, uncle, and cousin Dudley who loves punching Harry. They hate him so much they make him sleep in a broom cupboard. Then one day, a mysterious letter arrives. It is addressed to Harry Potter, The cupboard under the stairs. Uncle Vernon reacts. He hammers up the door, windows, and lots of other places that the letters may be able to be delivered. But they still come. So  Uncle Vernon drives them away to a hotel. But the next morning, the letters   addressed to Harry arrive at the hotel! So they drive away to a little hut on a rocky island. Even there, Harry has to sleep on the floor.

The next morning, on the very minute Harry turns eleven, a great huge stranger knocks the door down and comes in uninvited. He is Rubeus Hagrid, gamekeeper at Hogwarts School For Witchcraft and Wizardry. He explains that Lily and James Potter were murdered by the greatest wizard of all time, Lord Voldemort. (But everyone is too scared to say his name, so they call him You Know Who.) Harry Potter is a wizard. Harry had not known any of this. Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia had told him his parents had died in a car crash. That was why he had a scar shaped like a lightning bolt on his forehead.

In the end, Harry is sent to Hogwarts and makes friend with a witch and a wizard, Ron and Hermione. And there is a teacher who is a follower of LordVoldemort, with something gruesome and terrifying on his neck. He dies.

BOOK 2: HARRT POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS. In the holidays, Harry is not being treated any better. A house-elf named Dobby gets him into trouble and the Dursleys lock him up in his room. However, he does go back to Hogwarts, (bravo to the Weasley boys Fred, George and Ron for rescuing him in a flying car) but something strange is happening. Students, one cat and one ghost are found frozen. What is causing it? Harry is hearing voices nobody else can. Ginny Weasley, younger sister to Ron, is possessed. Harry must go down into the Chamber Of Secrets and fight a giant serpent, a Basilisk. It can kill you if you take one look into its eyes. Harry kills the snake and rescues Ginny Weasley.

BOOK 3: HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN. Aunt Marge is coming to stay. She hates Harry just as much as the Dursleys. Harry cannot stand it. He runs away (after accidentally blowing up Marge), and gets picked up by a magic bus, the Knight Bus. He goes to Diagon Alley an spends a happy time there. It is, you see, a wizard alley, invisible to Muggles (non magical people like you, me and the Dursleys.) After meeting up with Ron they journey to Hogwarts. But…… there is a wizard criminal on the loose. He breaks into Gryffindor Tower and Ron wakes up to find him standing over his bed with a knife!

Cut a long story short, the man is called Sirius Black. He and the Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher, Remus Lupin, were James Potter’s friends. Black didn’t want to kill Ron; he wanted to kill Rons pet rat, Scabbers. His real name is Peter Pettigrew, and he betrayed James and Lily Potter’s whereabouts to You-Know-Who. Plus, he tagged along with Black, Potter and Lupin at Hogwarts. They all learnt to turn themselves into animals;Peter turned himself into a rat because Black was set out to kill him.

The story has a good ending, although Pettigrew escapes.

BOOK 4: HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE.  Harry has a dream about You-Know-Who, who has murdered a Muggle (non-magical people like you and me) and wakes up to find his scar hurting. He writes a letter to his godfather, Sirius, but doesn’t make it sound too serious. He goes to the Quidditch World Cup with the Weasleys and that night, Death Eaters (followers of You-Know-who) are in the camp. Harry loses his wand and Mr Crouch’s house-elf is found guilty. Harry sets off to Hogwarts, where the the Triwizard Tournament will take place. There are supposed to be three champions but Harry’s name has somehow been put into the Goblet of Fire and he is the fourth. Rita Skeeter, a newspaper reporter, is publishing lies about Harry. There is a new teacher at Hogwarts. Somebody wants to murder Harry…

BOOK 5: HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX.  The school carriages are being drawn by magical animals that only people who have seen murder can see. Dolores Umbridge is the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher and is perfectly awful. Harry starts up a club to teach everyone what they should really be learning in Defence Against The Dark Arts. Harry is having strange dreams and Voldemort is determined to steal a prophecy…

BOOK 6: HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE.  Dumbledore is frequently away from Hogwarts and one ofhis hands is black and withered. Harry is sure that Malfoy is a Death Eater. He and Harry are having lessons together and when they leave the school together to find a Horcrux, it half-kills Dumbledore. When they arrive back at the castle, the Dark Mark is hanging over it.Snape murders Dumbledore. There is a big fight; the students, teachers and the Order versus the Death Eaters.

BOOK 7:HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS. Harry, Ron and Hermione are searching for Horcruxes to finish the task Dumbledore set Harry. You-Know-Who is taking over and Harry and Hermione are almost killed by his snake, Nagini. Will they succeed?

Fun Facts! You can watch the Harry Potter movies (but they miss out some bits).

J.K.Rowling refused to let people make movies of the Harry Potter books unless they stuck very closely to the story.(They missed out Peeves the Poltergeist.)harry-potter-and-the-philosophers-stone

Things to ask Siri

siri.jpg

Siri is a creation of Apple. This Artificial Intelligence can be pretty ridiculous when you ask her certain things. I’ll share some of the best:

  • “What does the fox say?”
  • “Give me a beat”
  • “What is zero divided by zero?”
  • “I am your father!” (This is for the Star Wars lovers!)
  • “What is the best phone?”
  • “Which is the best phone?”
  • “What came first: The chicken or the egg?”
  • “How many Apple Store geniuses does it take to screw in a lightbulb?”
  • “How do I look?” (ask her multiple times, as she has lots of answers!)
  • “What are you and The Rock up to?”
  • “What are you wearing?” (Ask her multiple times, as she has lots of answers!)

 

(I got a few of these from a website and some other authors on Sunshine Bubble Station!)

Clothes Item of the Issue:

img_3003.jpg

This is my “gift box” dress, because when I put it on, I look like a gift box. It is pink, with a huge bow that we can’t take off. A couple of weeks ago, we had a Polish lunch/play date with some friends (two of which are authors here on Sunshine Bubble Station 🙂 ), and later we had a fashion show. I got one of the girls to put on the dress and scrunch up, while I carried her around the cat walk (the lounge room floor), so she looked like gift box. But she was fairly heavy, so I had to walk off to the kitchen were the rest of the children were changing or waiting.

 

Food of the Issue:

CHEESE!!

Yummy yummy cheese! There are soooo many kinds! Do you think anyone had tried EVERY SINGLE ONE???? I really love cheese!

This is the gemstone bracelet I own. It has Rose Quartz, Purple Amethyst, Yellow Calcite, Clear Quartz and Green Amethyst. I don’t wear it much as once it broke and some stones fell off.

 

App of the Issue:

dwtd2tgDumb Ways To Die 2: The Games. This is the second app, after Dumb Ways To Die, which was featured in Issue #2. It is a bit harder than the first one, but it’s a nice challenge.

How To Make Fuzzy Stars

Do you like making stars? There are many kinds:

IMG_2989

Today I’ll teach you (if you don’t already know) how to make a Fuzzy Star:

jh

Get a pen or pencil (if it is a pencil make sure it is really dark when you draw lightly).

Make lines very lightly, a few for where every line should be. Don’t worry if it sometimes doesn’t draw. It has a nice look. You can be a little sloppy, if you want.

You can make any type of star. I’ll show you how to make some other nice ones soon.

How To Get Away With Eating Lollies!

Often us children sneak lollies out of the panty, cupboard, fridge, or wherever they are. Even some adults hid it from their partners. But have you been caught time after time with mouthfuls of lollies and then gotten consequences? Well, even if you hadn’t, you’d better read my guide, just in case.

 

TIPS ON HOW TO GET AWAY WITH EATING LOLLIES (OR OTHER THINGS) IN SECRET:

  • Close and put away the boxes, containers, bags, packets, or whatever your treat is in that you were stealing away in the correct place as soon as you take as much as you want out.
  • Be sure not to take too much out, because then someone will notice (if the packet is full you can’t take all of it, because they would remember that it had been full, last time they saw it).
  • Make sure everyone in the house is busy and won’t get up while you are getting the treat.
  • Try to eat it as fast as you can, but don’t choke. If you make noise and someone hears you and saves you and asks you what you were doing…..trouble…
  • Be as quiet as you can. Any little click or crunch will draw attention.
  • If you are worried you will get caught, make sure you had brought a plastic bag, put everything in it, and put it in you pants, but try not to make it crunch and put a big lump there.
  • If you get caught while you have some it your mouth, make sure you stash the lollies and swallow your lollies, or hide it under your tongue and if someone gets you to open your mouth, they won’t see it!
  • If you get caught while you have some it your mouth, make sure you stash the lollies and swallow your lollies, and if you have time and have a cup of water in your room, seize the cup of water and drink it to get rid of the smell, and keep drinking until you can’t taste anything sweet it your mouth.
  • Eat them at midnight if you want to rot your teeth.
  • Make sure you close the containers, bags, or whatever the thing was in that you were taking from your mum’s wardrobe.
  • Sneak them to school (if you go) and eat them there in secret.
  • Have them in a break while you mum or dad are teaching someone else (if you are home schooled and have a sibling/siblings), but make sure you drink a lot of water afterwards and you are far away and out of sight.
  • Be sure nobody can see you without people being suspicious.
  • Eat it in the bathroom. Pretend you had to go to the toilet.
  • Sneak some into the pockets of your robe when you go to have a shower, then you can have some while showering and it will be less boring!
  • Make sure nobody can smell anything sweet in the air – if anyone or anything smells it, they will find it one way or another.
  • Make sure your face is clean before you go walking around.
  • Brush your teeth. If someone catches you, say you just realized how important it is and that you are going to do it more often from then on. But remember to brush even if you haven’t eaten any – people will get suspicious!
  • Don’t try to get away from your parents if they ask you about it, they will think you are up to something.
  • If you have any perfume, spray it so nobody smells lollies, chocolate or whatever you had. But ONLY USE THE PERFUMES THAT YOUR FAMILY KNOWS ARE YOURS AND YOU HAVE AND KNOW THEM!!!!!!!!!!
  • If you go to the shops and buy lots of candy for your supply, buy an extra small thing, such as a chocolate bar, and show it to your parents, as they probably know you love lollies, and they will get suspicious if you say you didn’t buy anything.
  • Make sure you don’t leave wrappers anywhere. Keep them in a hidden bag, then on rubbish night, offer to take the bins out. Then you slip the bag in.
  • Put wrappers in crumpled bits of paper towel or tissues and put them in the outside, make sure you hide the towel under some other rubbish, or make sure your parents can’t see the wrappers, they won’t fall out, and nobody would get suspicious.
  • Put small bunches of lollies in different hiding spots, so if your parents find some, they will only find a small part.
  • Be aware of when cleaning day is, and if you think there is a certain place where your mum cleans, move the lollies from there.
  • Hide things between your clothes, in trinket boxes, and between all your stuff.
  • Make sure your sibling don’t find anything, especially if they also have sweet teeth or are known to tell.
  • If you want to do your daily good deed, make your sibling(s) promise not to tell, then you can give them a little now and then.
  • Make sure nobody tends to walk through or around your room too much.
  • Put wrapped things in your socks. But make sure your mum doesn’t choose your clothes for you, because she might find them!
  • If you have lots of coins, put some in the piggy bank.
  • Sneak some into magazine folders. A chocolate bar can double as a book!
  • If someone is close to your hiding spot, act natural. Don’t shout of fidget, or try to stop them, or act nervous.
  • Make sure people aren’t nosy.
  • DON’T hide lollies where other people are known to look.
  • Keep changing where you’re hiding things.
  • Make sure nobody sees you looking through your stashes.
  • Ants and bugs can smell sugar from kilometres away, so make sure you keep everything in bags and boxes that are closed so they can’t find anything. Even if one ant finds it, it will get the rest and you will be caught!
  • Make sure that there are no things in or near your hiding spots that other people might want and take, such as old school or text books.
  • Make sure no stains or crumbs or anything go on the floor.
  • If something slips out, and you can’t find it, search like mad. If someone finds it…..
  • If you have a nosy pet, or that often goes in your room, make sure you hide everything where they can’t reach.
  • Make sure you write down where your hiding places are and if you finished everything in them and what you have in them to make sure nobody has found out and is taking them for themselves without you realizing it!
  • Stick small, flat things to the back of picture frames, just make sure nobody can see them.
  • Make sure there is no way people can see or hear you eating – mirrors are culprits and awkward silences often get you it trouble.
  • If you are REALLY desperate, you can put wrapped things in potted plants, just make sure nobody does the gardening, otherwise they will find it (Imagine what their first reaction would be 🙂 )
  • Don’t smile or act odd when you think someone is suspicious. Especially around THEM.
  • Tape some small bits to the bottom of your bed if you keep the underneath your bed.
  • Swish some toothpaste or mouth wash around your mouth once you are finished eating.

Curious Encounter

Hello.

I found this insect in my room earlier when I was trying on some winter scarfs and hats and such things to see if the still fit (they DON’T!!!!!! 😦 😮 ), and my mum noticed this things. Does anyone know what it is? It is brown, and about a centimeter long. It is not a spider.
