    The world ended on a breezy day in mid-August. People rampaged, the president was taken hostage, big buildings were shut down. The cause: a social media shut-down.

 

    That day in August there was a meeting regarding an entire remodel of the control center in Washington D.C. Unfortunately, during the meeting in which a head designer was explaining what the red button did, the president went power hungry and pressed it. He didn’t press the one that sent off the missiles, of course, but pressed the one that could cause even more damage. He pressed the button that shut down our country’s most important resource: social media.

 

There was no explosion. There was only silence. Until there wasn’t.

 

    Simultaneously, all around the United States people screamed and cried. They tore down buildings, set fire to the streets, and crashed their cars into the rivers. No one could have ever expected it, therefore, no one knew how to handle it. This fateful day changed our country forever in more ways than one.

 

    After the social media shut-down, the United States’ citizens got dumber. All of them, it seemed, acted as useful as a pool made of cardboard. People forgot how to express their opinions. Without a forum for them to spew hateful words from behind a screen, people didn’t know how to talk anymore. They didn’t know how to show their friends a photoshopped picture of themselves. They didn’t know how to argue or disagree. They didn’t know how to live anymore.

 

    As news of the lack of social media spread, people got angry all around the world. There were people from other countries running across the world to get to us and and scream in our faces. There was war. There was unrest. Any peace that had settled over the years vanished completely. And it was all because of social media.

Brooklyn ran like she never has before. She ran through the busy streets of Chicago without so much as a glance at the people she had accidentally shoved aside in her rush. She could hear police sirens behind her. She wove her way through the crowd with ease, the stolen goods in her bag. Her heart beating fast, she turned left into an abandoned alleyway. She ran to the side of the building, waiting for the sirens to whiz past. And they did. Took them long enough. With a sigh of relief, she started bounding up the fire escape of the abandoned building. Once she made it out onto the top, she strolled over to her hideout on the top of the building. Once inside she dropped the contents of her bag on the ground with the rest of the stolen objects she had recently acquired.

“Thought I would find you here.” a voice said behind her. She whipped around. There he was standing in all his glory. She could hear his deep, exaggerated, British accent and it gave her the strong desire to punch a wall. If she punched him he would most likely throw her off the side of the building. “I need you to do a job for me.”

The first day I saw him, he was sitteded next to me with a big fluffy white coat. With fat glasses percheded up his head, he looked like an elephant in a graveyard. I coulded tell that he was alone, so I moveded over towards him, like a cow eating gravy. When I stood next to him, he look up like I was Santa Claus in the middle of Kwanza. "How d'ya do," I asked the boy, a toothy grin plastered to my face. He sat for a minute, not answering my question, not even movin'. "Do you speak english," I asked, a little impatient. Again, he didn't even 'spond to mine question.

if I met the president I would want him to stick to his word and keep the promises he's made. I would encourage him to do what he's promissed and hopefully make his promisses into reality. If he does do what he promisses I think America would be safe and a tough enemy. I think America is one of the hardest places to take down now that we have a president that will keep his word and hopwfully make those promissed into a reality we can all live in and have safe lives.

I remember the day I almost died like it happens everyday. I was on my phone talking to my best friend Jenny and we were talking about when we were going to go to the mall, then I was getting another call from someone. I hung up the phone with Jenny and answered the other caller. Then I said “Hello? Who is this?” all I heard back was breathing. Then I heard a scratchy voice say “Turn around.” I didn’t know what was going on but then I was getting nervous and I said “What? Who is this? I’m not joking tell me who you are!” Once again all I heard was

“Turn around.” So for some reason, probably because I wasn’t thinking I turned around. I turned very slowly, then the one thing I saw was someone in a black ski mask. I think it was a man because they had a manish body and had a manly voice. After he told me to come with him or else. I looked down and saw that he was holding a handgun in his hand and I started to shake like someone was tazing me. So I went with him and he took me to his car. We drove for a little bit, but then all of a sudden I just started going crazy and I started to kick and punch him and grab his hand that way he couldn't’ shoot me, then I broke the window of his car and dove out of there and started to run. I ran until I got to the police and I told them what happend. Then later that night my phone rang again…. but instead of a mystery man it was my friend Jenny, so we just talked about when we were going to go to the mall again and just forget about the whole day.

 

02/15/2018 - 12:11

I answer my phone, a strange voice that sounded like it echoed behind me. He says to ‘turn around’. I turn around as fast as I can, so scared that I am shaking to a point that I might start a tornado. I see this tall dark figure in the corner of my room. Walk slowly towards it and every step I take the floor rattles beneath me. The dark figure jumps out of the corner.

    ‘Would you like to buy some twinkies’. They are covered in sprinkles and showered with frosting and he says ‘they are the newest and best twinkies ever’. I say ‘I would like to buy every single one’. Later that night I stuff myself to the point of explosion and DIE.

It was a normal day in east high when I got a call from an unknown number. I just ignored it. Wait what if that was lisa I thought to myself. I looked up at the clock on the wall only to see that it was time to go to ELA so I started down the hallway to my class and someone was standing at the other end of the hall with a black sweatshirt and tattered jeans. “Hey, what are you doing down there?¨ ¨Turn around¨ he yelled back just in time to see a bullet hit my chest. I stayed alive just until I heard him say ¨told you so.¨

02/15/2018 - 12:06

 I was frozen, I could not move. It was like all they joy, happiness and excitement I had just been experiencing had fled from my body. Time slowed nearing a point where it almost stop. The moment lasted for what felt like an eternity as I stared at the sky with my mouth open wide. I could taste my fear, all I could see was the flashes of red, yellow and orange as they made impact with the earth, from the ground I felt the shock of the impact of their collisions. I was sucked from my daze when a man collided with me I looked around at the many people running, than I looked back at the man. He pulled me to my feet and yelled “WE GOTTA RUN!” as another pod hit the ground only feet away.

 

  Three weeks before…

 

It was march almost my birthday……

‘’Bzzzzz, bzzzzz’’, my phone rang. The sound of the phone woke me up. I went over to the phone and picked it up. There was no name attached to the call. I thought for a minute, and then answered it. ‘’Hello, who is this?’’, I asked into the phone. There was breathing, and then I heard the person talking. ‘’Turn around, now’’, the mystery man said in a deep, low, gravelly voice. I didn’t dare to do it. ‘’Um, yeah no’’. I hung up the phone, but I didn’t turn around. I didn’t know what was going to happen. The phone rang again. ‘’No, I’m not going to turn around. Who do you think I am, Drew Barrymore in Scream. No thank you’’, I said with anger. I hung up again, and put down the phone. Now I didn’t know what to do. Should I turn around, no. I’m too scared. I can’t just keep staring at this wall. Then I had an idea. I closed my eyes, walked to the right without turning, walked backwards, and out the door. I never came back, even though the cake was still there on the table. Waiting for me, with the bomb still in it.

Dismensions are created every day, I'm about to tell you the day I was created. My name is Natasha, I'm known as the god of the twelth dimension. The dimension I rule is like a mystical fantasy world to the mortals of the third dimension. It's kinda had to discribe, you would need to see it to believe it. Gods have no need to reproduce so there is no need for gender, everyone is also different in apperance, some are human like and others are like animals. I originally came from the third dimension. I don't remember anything about it other than it is ruled by humans who can't decide on what flavor coffee they want while there is a child starving in another part of there corupt world. In the after life you are judge whether you get to go the the good place or the bad place based on you past life. When it was my turn to be judged there was something differnt. usally there is a gate that opens and leads you to the place you are to spend for the rest of eternity. I was confused till a creature that looked like an elf came up to me and escorted me to a room. where a woman was sitting on a throne, her hair looks like it is made up of galaxies and it just flowing in the air, her skin color is an icy blue color and her dress looks like it is make up of dimmed stars. She motioned her to for me to come over which I did. She then placed her hand on top of my head and she said something but it wasn't the language that I know. Then all my memories of my past life were wiped out. When I woke up I was on the floor and the woman was still sitting on the throne, now it was easier to undertsand her when she spoke. "Welcome to the family Natasha, god of the twelth dismenion" she said with a smile. I got up and looked at myself, my skin color is white, like copy paper white with grey contour, my hair is jet black and the hair and the color of my eyes are blood red. I looked around and saw others like me. Not the same physical traits, there was a guy with white hair and blue eyes and pale skin and another girl with a dark glowing skin tone with gold colored eyes. I soon became friends with them and they showed me what being a god of a dimension is all about.

I got on my new phone and I turned around and I saw my mother on the ground holding her chest so I call for my dad and he said, “I don’t know what’s going on.” So we bring her to the hospital she was tired so she fell asleep and I was scared that she would never wake up. So when the doctor came in I asked him if she was going to be okay and he said, “maybe.” She said “i’m going to be okay son so go to sleep.” So I went to sleep and when I woke up I was away from my mom and she was, somewhere else and when I got up and she was out the door waiting for me. That is when I actually crapped my pants.

I scream and shout

But no sound comes out.

I run and run

But there is no one.

No sound.

No life.

Nothing but despair.

I see nothing.

I hear nothing.

...

I wonder if anyone's there.

''Kids!,'' my mom yells from downstaris, ''Food is ready!'' My moms voice seems faniter then usual, but I think nothing of it. I swing my door open, then see Amanda's golden blonde hair in the corner of my eye. We always race down the stairs to see who gets to the kitchen first. So I run past her, speedy fast, making sure my shoulder brushes up against hers so she knowns i'm not messing around. I get to the second to the last step, gazing behind me expecting to her to be practically touching me, but she isn't. Infact, she's still at the top of the stairs. ''No race today?'' I say as I wait for her to catch up. ''No. Not today kiddo.'' My sister always says that to me. Even if she's in a bad mood. It gives me a warm gushy feeling inside. I shrug and continue walking to the kitchen. ''It's your favorite.'' My mom says bringing two plates full of green pasta in the living room. And it actually was. Gotta love me some green pasta. I grabbed a plate and gooped on a big chunk of pasta, and garlic bread. I followed Amanda in the living room were we usually eat, and plopped myself down right in the middle of the couch. ''Annika, toss me the remote.'' ''Can you put it on Nickelodeon? There's a new show out and-'' she cut me off. ''We're watching the news tonight, okay?'' ''Mom please.'' ''Annika.'' Her voice seemed shacky and low, almost like she was whispering. So I stopped arguing. She switched it to channel 9. The screen cuts to a news reporter, outside. It was pitch black. He seemed to be jittering. Cold maybe? Who knows. He was rammbling on about technology, then it cuts to a black screen. Then after about a second, it cuts to the reporter yelling intensly into the micrphone. It was like it's jibberish. ''What's he saying?'' Amanda says to my mom. Her voice started to seem just as shaky as mom's. ''Not sure. Listen.'' We all watch closely. He screaming gets louder, then cuts to the black screen again. The silence in the room seemed more powerful then a million words.

One morning I woke up to the phone ringing, I got up put my slippers on and headed down the stairs. When I get to the phone, I pick it up but, there was no one on the other end. I thought to myself must just be a prank call or they called the wrong number. So I go back up the stairs trying not to fall over my car because i'm so tired, I open my bedroom door and right when im getting ready to change for school the phone rings. I run back down the stairs once again trying not to fall over my cat, I pick up the phone and once again silence. I walk up the stairs again this time stomping my feet I get to my room get ready for school and head downstairs to get something to eat, So I decided to have some eggs, toast, and bacon for breakfast, I made my food and right when I go to sit down the phone rings, I get up to answer the phone and guess what know one was there, I go back to sit and I look at my plate and half of my food is gone. I look around to to find my cat to see if he ate it but, when I find him he is fast asleep on the stairs were he had been all morning. I grab my backpack and my keys and right as I'm walking out the door the phone rings I Sprint to the phone, I pick it up and this time someone is on the other end but what the person said next made me want to jump out of my own skin they said "turn around". I listen and I turn around and when I do the person I see standing in front of me is my dad back from one of his long work trips, I jump into his arms so happy to see him but after i'm done hugging him I yell at him for scaring me. I later asked my dad why he called so many times and his repose to that question was something I wasn't expecting, he said what are you talking about I only called you once, then that is when I started to freak out, the next thing I know I wake up scared and shocked that this whole thing was a dream, it felt so real.

Social Media, in this day and age social media controls are lives. With your morning starting with doing your streaks ,maybe posting a picture on instagram or sending a couple tweets. What if that was taken away from everyone... IF social media shut down it would shake the world. There would be kaos ,People would actually have talk to each other in real life, they couldn't brag about there trip to mexico or there Iphone X they just got for christmas. If you wanted someones number you would have to ask for it in, REAL LIFE, Thats right REAL LIFE. There would be no snapchat to ask out that girl you liked for 2 years. There would be no instagram to "slide into those DMS". There would be no bit-Emjoi so wouldn't have to type anything. There would be no twiter so you couldn't tweet about how crappy the new snapchat update is. Oh, and that 500 day streak you had is gone. As I said before complete Kaos.

I am the one who doesn't know who she is anymore... for the longest time i thought i was happy without him but today.... today i relize that i miss him and that he loves her now.... Everynight i think about what we would be right now if i hadn't said the wrong thing but somtimes you say things that you don't mean you just say it because your mad and its just in the moment... I told him that im happy for him if hes happy with her but i don't acually believe that because i wish i was her but that will never happen again... hes one of my best and closest friends.... hes like a brother to me but really i feel like hes shutting me out ever since they started dating her... I say im fine with them dating but im not... Everytime i talk to him i want to tell him how i feel but i dont know how to tell him and i don't want to say the wrong thing again

02/15/2018 - 11:31

The thoughts that run through your head every day:

Why's she staring at me?

Why do they hate me? I hardly even know them. 

Why would someone like me?

Why did my life turn out this way? 

After losing someone all those thoughts go to waste, because the only 

thoughts you're thinking is what your next step is gonna be whether if 

you take that step alone or with someone you love. Who's gonna be 

there in her/his spot. Can I even do this anymore? 

I always wanted to be that kid who has perfect grades, and still 

manages to have friends. All that time I was thinking about my future 

the present wasn't in my mind. The one I loved the most left me while I

I was so concerned with the future I didn't even know I would have. 

You take chances you don't even know you can risk. 

The things I tell/ask my self every day now:

Is this worth it? Make good choices.

I'm loved as much as I need to be filled!

Care for those that care about you too. Make sure it's real.

The things that have happened to me in life no one ever deserves, but 

since I got brought this difficult road, I'm not gonna give up because 

life is here for the journies.

I walk up to my house and hear the house phone ringing. I walk up to it and pick it up when the person on the other end whispered "Turn around". I turn around and looked out the window and there on the ground was a grown woman dead with blood rushing down the water drains. I yelled to the phone "Who is calling". Then it whispered "T-B-M". Then hanged up. I wrote it down and called the police. They picked up the phone but then I heard screams and shouts.

today has been the best day of my life, but it has also been the most odd. I started off my day getting groceries for my mom and I got her favorite food which is lobster but I also got cake for desert. that afternon I was eating the cake and heard a werid buzzing like a cell phone sound. It was coming from the CAKE! I was very very worried that someone has lost there phone in my cake but it was a  shocking suprise the telephone kept saying turn around. SO I did and there standing was the president of the united states he said "You Mr. Nobody have won the most invisable person award  which is being the most invisabel personal you could be not be popular just to be Yourself in you own home". No one knew I egisted other than my mom and my dad who died two years ago in the military. I asked the president one thing  that he could do for me and that was let me Have my dad back. Mr.Presiden said he never even died he was working to keep the USA the safest place in the world. I am the type of person to always forget stuff I was asking him a question how he knew I would pick the cake and I almost forgot to finish eating it! At that moment the whole entire enternet crashed and the reason the president was here was that he needed me of all people to help him get the internet back. Then my dad walked in the front door and i was mad but happy at the same time that has to be the most kind thing anyone has done for me.

I came home from school one day and sat on my couch and ate chicken fingers. I was about to turn on my tv when my phone rang. My phone had said the call was a ¨No Caller ID¨ I thought to myself, ¨maybe its just one of my friends prank calling me¨ so I answered. I expected someone with a silly voice to answer and ask me if I left my furry underwear somewhere, but it wasnt. In fact it was a man. Or at least it sounded like one. He said, ¨turn around.¨ I hung up immedently and thought about calling my mom. This whole thing reminded me of the movie ¨Scream¨ where all those kids end up dying. I continued to watching Riverdale when he called AGAIN! I answered yelling, ¨WHAT"and he in return yelled, ¨TURN AROUND¨ I hung up and thought about what would happen if I actually DID turn around. I wasnt really about to be like those people in the movies so I didnt. But then he called AGAIN! I answered fourioslly, ¨WHAT DO YOU WANT¨ and then from my kitchen The song ¨Total Eclipse of the heart¨ started playing and I was SHOOK. I stood up steadily and walked slowly over to the kitchen. Then out of no where 3 of my friends popped up from behind my counter and started singing, ¨TURN AROUND BRIGHT EYES. EVERY NOW AND THEN I FALL APART.¨ I couldnt believe it they were behind this. ¨I for real thought that someone was going to come and kidnap me¨ I told them. And then we all jammed out to the rest of the song like nobody was watching.

I get to school the same as i do everyday, but todays not the same, nobodys talked to me or even acknowlaged at me. All my friends just stare and and roll there eyes. I try talking to them but, it just seems as if... im invisible. They leave the room as I go to them, at lunch its like nobody can even see me, i just dont understand what happend? Noboy will even hold doors for me, its like they dont like me anymore, or am i just not here? Are they just ignoring me or am i really invisible! I walk up to my teacher and tap her on the sholder, nothing, i do it again, nothing. I am invisible, i can do anything i want!

On August 10 my friends and I were hanging out at my house, and if you didn't already know we were on our phones. The only app we use is any type of social media, the one we use the most is snapchat so we can talk to a bunch of other people. That night at midnight something strange happened, but I'll tell you about my day first. In the afternoon we got off our phones because they were glitching as if the power went out on our phones. We went swimming for a while, walked the dogs, talked, and as you know went back to check our phones. They were perfectly fine but instagram wasn't loading as well. We thought it was because of our internet, but what happened at midnight changes that. Lets fast forward because the rest of the day was as boring as watching a turtle move 5ft. So yes we stayed up late, isn't that what you do at a sleepover. Anyway we were all on snapchat when all of our phones turned off as quick as a fox. My friends of course flipped out, but it doesn't affect me much because i'd rather hang out with them in person, but to all the cell phone lovers its the end of the world. We all decided to go to sleep. 

The next day we checked and all and when I mean all I mean as if the population disapeared. All the social media apps G-O-N-E gone. They were going insane over this. We decided to take a break and wait it out. We went to town for groceries, but we found a load of people at the tech center. We asked a lady what was going on and she said, " all the apps these children use have dsapeared and people are going phyco over it, Im just here to watch these crazy animals attck these inoccent people that know nothing." My mom replies " Oh, so the thing that happeded to my daughter happend to these people." "Well, yes I guess so." We ended up not getting groceries and getting away from the zoo of people. 

Later that night the news called it " the social media shutdown, turning many in rage. Some complaining about their streaks or worried about not posting on time." My nany told me " These kids and technology dont have nothin' better to do." Then again the news, "the social media shutdown is going global, we have just recived a message from the president saying ' Social media has caused great damage and promoted suicides, we have dicided to shutdown social media completly.'" My nany mummbles, " damn children better get used to this, theres plenty to do." and so let the world explode.

If there is ever a day where every social media apps would get deleted, I wouldn't be too happy. It would be a bad thing to get rid of social media. Over 100,000 kids in the USA get entertained by social media on their phones and if social media was to be gone, all those kids would flip., so if that got taken away it would ruin hundreds of kids lifes. For some people, social media is like goddess to them and they can't stay off of it or they'll die of boredom and get mad. They go on snapchat 24/7, but im not like that a ton. I go on social media at times when im bored (which is all the time) and i use it for the most of the time of my day, so if social media got deleted, i'd be pretty bored most of the day since i have nothing to do or go on and it would suck for me so i hope social media never gets deleted.

My bus stops for me to get off,  I am releived I don´t have to listen to the sound of kids anymore. The bus rolls away and my hands starts vibrating. I put the phone to my ear and answer it. What I heard made me want to get back on the screaming bus. ¨Turn around.¨I hear through my phone and in a distance.  I hesitated a litte before turnng around to see what was waiting behind me. Was it just some annyoing kid prank calling me? It sounded more deep then a high pitched noise of a brat. I was just probably hearing sounds. But what if someone was behind me? Wanting to kill me or kidnap me.  Should I run away now or turn around to see if someone is actaully there? i think about all the possible explanations of what could be behind me until I turn around. Nothing. Nothing was there. I sigh in releif that it was just a noise I heard. I turn back around and yelp. Somone was right infront of me. A man, with brown hair and blue eyes. Kind of hairy, but very tall. My eyes were definatly seeing things because the man started laughing. My heart was pounding, and I didn´t know what was going on. I got back into my life and what i saw wasn´t a man ar all. It was my brother who was there. He was the mysterious voice that I heard through my phone. He was the one who had tricked me into thinking it was a killer or kidnapper. My heartbeat went back to normal, and I gave a small hit to my brothers arm. As we walked down the driveway my brother´s phones starts to ring, I heard what this unknown caller said to my brother. We both looked at eachither and didn not hesitate. We ran to the house as fast as we could.

          Hello, my name is Michel Telfer. I am one of the goalies for St. Albans Bantam AA, #31. It has been a tough season to be comepletely honest. In games in state versus AA teams we are 1-8-0. Essex is the best team in the league, they only have one in state loss, and that was to us, the worst team in the league. We are all in our heads. We can with the state championship this year, we have proven we can with that win over Essex in January. This year is a weak year, I will own up to that. But that doesn't mean we just give up. Our first playoff game is in under forty eight hours. We play South Burlington it is a winnable hockey game, if we believe in ourselves. Then we play Essex, hardcore rivals always has been always will be. Then Burlington Sunday morning, if we go 2-1-0, we will be at Collins Perley for the state championship. 

          It's gameday, and we took the win over South Burlington 2-0. But we lost to Essex 3-1. Today is do or die if we win we'll be in the state championship, if we lose our season ends. South Burlington is eliminated, and Essex is already in the championship no matter what. It's between us and Burlington.

          The puck drops and the game starts. The first period in back and forth, no quality chances for either team. The second starts scoreless. Burlington has been all over us so far, they keep applying pressure and I continue to make saves. We finally break the puck out, we go down the other way and score! When the puck drops at center ice, we win the faceoff, then go and burry a second one. The second period ends with us on top 2-0. The third period starts and is about to end before I know it. Neither team had a ton of quality chances and now there is a minute left and we're up 2-0. They come in on a break shoot and score. It is now 2-1 with forty five seconds left. We win the draw, and then control the puck down in their zone. The clock winds down to zero, and we win the hockey game.

Today was like any other day. The sun was shining like fire blazing in the night. The air was fresh and crisp fulling me with delight. I walk to my place in the forest. Me and my faimly where on vacation and I found a beutiful place to where I could relax and not worry. So I thought. I wakl over follow the trail that I made and I come to a water fall. As it flowed into the pond making a soothing sound I sit back on a tree and close me eyes. I think about home back in Vermont. How my friends are doing on the summer day. I open my eyes and I see a wierd face looking at me. It has a tail and lots of hair. It had a wierd color and pattern. I get up and walk over to it. I reach out and then... its gone. I look around thinking that it was real. I just told myslef it was my imagination. So I go back so I could grab my swim suit for me to go swimming. Thats when I herd the noise. It was like  meow from a cat,but louder. I hurry and get to the cabbin my family and I where staying in.

" Hey Travis, you ok, you seem like you have seen a something like a bear that was chasing you."

" Yeah I-Im  good"

I walk up to my room so I could lay down. I decieded to stay here for a bit before going back. Then I hear footsteps coming up. My door opens and the a big looking cat walking in. I reach to touch it and it felt like the softest thing ever.

" Hello Travis."

I step back forgetting my bed was there. I fall backwards into my bed and keep backing up.

" Whats the matter? Don't you remember me from the water fall?"

He was that thing that made that noise. That wierd thing that looked at me. Whatever this thing was it looked like a big cat that does no harm.

" Y-yeah I remember. Why did you look at me then. what even are you?"

I get off my bed to get closer for an answer but he just dissapaers again.

" Well im your imagenary friend."

I wip around to find him sitting on my bed. You had a long fluffy tail. He had black and red colors. His eyes where a violet.

" I-Imargenary friend? I don't understand."

" Well I am here to make you happy. To be your giud through life."

" Well then if thats so how doy uo know my name?"

" You created me. Thats how we are born."

" umm ok. hwats your name?"

" I don't have a name. That is up to you to decide a name for me. After all I am a cat. Arn't you humans suppose to give your pets names?"

" Your not my pet. You an imargenary thing that just came out of no where!"

" Thats right. And?"

" Cats don't do that!"

" I know im not purrfect. I was just asking. But if your not feline up to the job then i won't have a name."

" Worst puns ever."

" meow."

"uggg"

I think about what name I should give to him. What would be a good name for a big cat.

" I know ash!"

" Ash? thats a new name I have never herd before."

" Travis who you talking to?"

" No one dad!"

" just a big talking cat."

" you stay out of this."

" Ok so you pick Ash?"

" yeah it matches your blck fur that you have. Plus it suits you."

" You can put on names like suits. What will the world think of next."

I laugh. He is really funny. I wonder though if I can do something.

" So if your my imagenary friend then I can change you?"

" Only on how I look."

I start to change colors on him.

" Woah stop it. I am not some rainbow that you can just do anything with!"

" ok ok. Your name now is Ash."

" Ok"

" Hey Ash do you like to swim?"

" not really why?"

" I put on my swimming gear.

" Lets go swimming!"

" No no no no. Im a cat I hate water. You can't force me to go swimming."

" It not that bad come on. or are you a scardy cat?"

" Why I otta!"

I run to the door.

" Mom dad I am going swimming at the falls."

I run not stoping. I look behind me and I don't see Ash. I loom ahead of me and I still see nothing. I look up.

" Hows life down there."

" You can jump tree to tree?!?"

" Yup. Beat you there!"

I run as fast as I can the wind in my face make me feel like the wind. I see Ash up ahead. I think of a distraction for him so I could win." Hey I found a bird for you!"

" Where?"

I run while he was looking for the bird. I was in the lead! I keep running until I fall into the pond. I was to bussy trying to win the race I fell into the pond already. I look over and I see Ash looking at me.

" dang it you win I gess."

" Look behind you."

Ash looks and I spash water on him. They look he gave me was so funny I fall back in the water laughing.

" You face! Its to funny."

He spashes a wave of water on me.

" yeah uhuh."

I get up from being in the wave of water that rushed over me.

" Oh its on."

After I wake up from the dream. I look around in my room. Ash was gone. I look at the bottem of my bed and there he was. Sleeping away. I gess that day really did happen.

What if there was no social media? All the friends that we have from other schools would be gone. You would never get to see them. You wouldn't know what was going on in the world except for your own town or city. If I didn't have social media I would literally go crazy. I practically live on my phone. I mean if there was no social media, we would have to memorize so many phone numbers and would have to call them, which is boring. When you have social media you can talk to multipe people at a time and see what their doing. Snapchat is really confusing now and it makes me want to delete it because of the new update, its so annoying. On instagram you can post things that you do and stuff and you can also see what other people are doing. In the summer time we would have to call our friends if we didn't have sicial media and that means that almost everybody would be on the phone. Nowadays, Snapchat, instagram, facebook, twitter, ect is how we communicate in this century. Like if you had a boyfriend or a best friend that went to another school, and the social media shut down then you could have no way to contact them because most people don't memorize phone numbers anymore, they memorize there snapchat or instagram username. I talk to most of my friends over snapchat and never on the phone. I only talk on the phone with my older family members because they text really slow and it annoys me. I hate slow texters like type faster or I will delete you. I mean if the social media shut down that means that we would still be able to text but just texting over messages gets boring sometimes. I would be out of touch with most of my friends because I have lots of friends at other schools and I dont have most of there contacts. When I go on my phone I always go on snapchat and I talk to a lot of people, so if social media shut down I would basically loose all my friends. Yeah this generation is addicted to there phones but we talk to a lot of people on our phones. 

02/15/2018 - 11:24

One minute you are scrolling through Instagram. The next... it crashes. You try frantically to get beck on to the now perminantly closed app. If this happened to me, I would probably cry. I go on social media a lot. And I mean a LOT. I mean, social media like snapchat, instagram, twitter, these days, its how we communicate. Why would we call people. You have to type in the phone numbers, boring. Snapchat got this new update and I want to delete it anyway because it SUCKS. I wouldn't risk losing my streaks though. On the other hand, Instagram is where I contact most of my friends. I would be out of touch with all of my other friends and there is just no way we have each other's contacts.  There may be some things that are good about it. Without social media, it would be good for some families who's kids won't get off their phones. Back to the bad things though. We wouldn't hear about any of the things that have happened because, who wants to watch the news. Gross. Also, all major companies use Social Media for advertizing so it would be bad for them too.

 (gore warning ⚠️) by Brailee Kelley 
Me and my best friend Jasper have been going to this summer camp for at least two years together, it isn’t exactly a good place for kids but the kids can be nice. two years ago this is actually where I met Jasper.
My name is Emily I have blonde hair that fades into a pink and icy blue eyes that looks like they are glowing and I wear a light pink hoodie with my camp uniform shirt underneath and white jeans and white shoes that I can usually keep perfectly clean.
My best friend Jasper wears a long sleeve purple flannel with his sleeves rolled up and his camp shirt over it and dark blue shorts with a lighter color of blue triangles on them he has grayish blue eyes and olive/dirty blonde hair and he has la gear light up shoes he might as well come from the 90s with how he talks looks and acts.
We have gone to this awful camp for years but the only reason we still come is because we live all the way across the country from each other and we can’t stand to be apart for so long we have been talking over the phone, texting, and we have Skype calls all the time but this year was different and in a bad way because the year took a turn for the worst Jasper has become the best camper and he calls me up on stage to give me some credit so of course I go up and stand next to Jasper. “Leaving it on a cliffhanger comment if you want a part two!”

You answer your phone and a voice whispers, "Turn around…” a large cake is there then the top and a red balloon floats out. The next day your going to school and drop your scooter and it floats to the sewer. And you, jerry tries to grab and a creepy clown gives you your scooter saying”here you little boy he he he”. Then suddenly when your walking away the clown says”what’s your name mines Brenda”. You say”Jjjjjeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyyyy” you go back the sewer and Brenda suddenly grabs your dragging into sewer it. Jabs his gross teeth into your arm all while your screaming. You feel your bones crumbling your veins splitting spraying blood absolutely everywhere. After Brenda finishes ripping your arm off blood gushing out mixing into the sewer water making it a deep brown. After that day Jerry Garcia was never seen again… until now. People said the town was haunted like my grandpa joe he grew up here said kids went missing. I was walking on the sidewalk when a lady fell out window 8 story’s high when she hit the ground blood gushed everywhere spraying over me...

Dear President Trump, 

You are charge of a country it is a big job, and you have a lot to work on. 
There have been marches everywhere do you even notice or care. Climate change might be a huge problem for you to take in but is a problem and taking many species of the endangered list just by the way won’t  help at all. And could you at least say one nice thing a day, like literally. The women’s march a huge act of freedom did you do anything to help their needs and wishes the millions only wanted one thing fundamental rights, did you answer them or even help….no, there were even people in Antarctica! I know Bernie is your enemy but if you took advice from him I wouldn’t be protesting you, and you might act like a country leader for once. I know you are kind of trying your hardest but what if you stepped in other people’s shoes for a while. And if you can’t change with all of this advice give your position up to Bernie, even though you should be impeached by now with all of your horrible actions. 

TAKE MY ADVICE!!!

Yours sincerely,

One night I was just about to fall asleep then my dad yelled to me. He said that he was riding the bus home alone cause his sister was going to a friends house. So he had a nice normal day at school till art class the teacher said draw whatever you want to at the end of class everyone had drawn a group of clowns hiding on roofs in front of windows but he drew a nice picture of his backyard landscape. So that made him really scared so he tried to get ahold of his dad to see his someone could pick him up but when it was answered all he could hear was the sound of blood dripping off a knife. Then when he got home the phone rang he was so scared that he didn’t pick up the phone but then it rang agent and again so he answered the phone he heard a voice say turn around. He saw the same clown that was in the window as in the pictures. Then he ran outside and started screaming help but the town looked abandoned...

The clock has just struck midnight when all of a sudden she felt a vibration in her left pocket. She hesitantly pick up her phone and placed it agnist her ear. "hello." she said in a shaky voice that was bearly audiable. "Turn around" the mysterious voice whispered. She slowly turned around and saw nothing but rows and rows of books and the cranky old librairan. She checked the number to see who it was but it was a blocked number. She checked behind her agian, "Hello," she whispered "Who is there." no one anwserd her.Expect the librairan whos reply was "shhhh." She quickly packed up her things and ran out of the building. Then yelled "who is there." the only sound she heard was of crickets chirping in the tall grass patch. checking behind her with every step she took. When she got home she quickly locked all the doors. And checked to see if anyone was home. Her dad left when she was eight and her mother died in a car crash a few years ago. It was just her and her older brothers. She knew where her oldest brother was, Thomas had the night shift, Sam was at his friends house. But where was Harry? She searched all over her house and saw nothing, well exept for one place. The downstaries bathroom. She slowly made her way down the stairs and then slowly walked  to the door. It slowly opend when she put her hand on the gray, faded door. She walked in and saw....

Dear Mr.Trump,
Please don’t build a wall! Please bring people like you and me together. I would like it if we joined with Canada and Mexico. I would like the world to be as one. You can make it that way. The wall will bring everyone apart and might start WW3, World War 3!!
Sincerely,
Lydia Knight.
