Found Dinosaurs

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 19:32

I just knew that dinosaurs were real because my dad, Gina, was an astronaut. He went to planet Asorath and found hundreds of them. 

He tried to tame one and I never heard back, so two more people went there and brought tranquilizers and they tranquilized one. 

Then they tried to come back home home, but they went into a black hole. That's the last we heard of them. 

And then two more people went and they tranquilized two more dinosaurs and got lost in outer space. 

So finally we blew it up. 

The end. 

The Perfect Day

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 17:32

I just knew today it was going to be a good day.The birds were chirping as I woke up to rays of sun shining through my window.I rolled out of bed and was greeted by my dog, Charlie.His soft, shiny brown coat reflected the rays of the sun coming through my curtains.My oatmeal was warm, as I watched the brown sugar slowly melt into the mushy oatmeal.I jumped out of the chair and went to get dressed into my favorite outfit.Today was already feeling perfect.School was great.Everything was turned in on time like it's supposed to.As I came home supper was in the oven.My favorite pizza.The smell could hypnotize you.That night as I fell asleep the curtains blew slowly from the wind coming from the open window.I closed my eyes and dreamed of tomorrow.

 

The Door

I just knew that if I went through the 24 karat gold door I’d be somewhere magical, but I didn’t know where I’d be. Would I be in Olympus? Would I be in the underworld? Or would I be in the labyrinth? I’d never find out, if I didn't go through the 24 karat gold door.

Bob's Voice

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 15:30

I just knew that this would happen, that everything would turn black in just minutes. I don't know how I knew, but I just had this funny feeling that it would happen. It all started when I was walking down the street with my friend Bob.

Then I said to Bob, "Bob, something bad is going to happen." 

He said back, "What do you mean?"

I said, "Bob, I am going to get hurt and in any moment everything is going to turn back."

And like I said, I was right. This car came flying by, and it hit me. Everything turned black. I couldn't see anything. All I could do was hear. I heard Bob calling my name, saying "Wake up," but for some reason, I couldn't wake up and his voice was fading away. I was dying...

Theo's Fault

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 15:12

     It was all Theo's fault. Ha ha, just kidding. He started it, though. We were just in class, working on a science experiment when he decided to lob my science book across the room into the opposite chemistry lab. Yeah, it broke stuff. Yes, chemicals went everywhere. But it wasn't me. At this point, Mr. Erate sees the horrible mess. He picks up the object of destruction, and, of course, my name is on it. He yells out my name, and I pushed Theo into the table. He makes a huge scene of it, flailing and breaking glasses and tupperware. At this point, we were both laughing and covered in broken glass and chemicals. Then, Mr. Erate's voice cut through the pandemonium like a thousand-degree knife through anything. I just knew I was screwed.

Birthday

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 14:37

Today was an extremely special day. My birthday!  I had recieved many wishes from my friends and calls from my family all day long.  But this wasn't what my birthday was all about.  It was about getting those pristine, priceless pair of nike basketball shoes I had customized.  However, no shoe-box shaped gift appeared in the assembly of presents before me.  I ate my cake at the table suspiciously, knowing my family had something planned.  Afterwards, I began opening my gifts: shirts, a new backpack, a basketball--nothing.  I half-heartedly thanked my parents and brothers for the birthday celebration and proceeded to pick up the wrapping paper.  

"Jimmy," my dad crooned with his hands behind his back.  "I think you forgot something"

He whipped out a nike shoe box and I grabbed the nike shoe box euphorically.  I paused before I opened it.

"Thanks, Dad."  I popped open the lid and closed my eyes.  I opened them slowly.  My dad was giggling uncontrollably and, puzzled, I looked downwards.

In the box lay a white piece of paper with the words GOTCHA! written in bold red.

I knew my dad was a dirty rotten scoundrel.

The cold crisp air was blowing through my hair as I stand at the top of the mountain. I look down and see fresh powder snow just lying there glowing in the sunlight. This has been my dream for ever. The sun was just barely rising. You could see the bright orange as it is going over the mountain. I’m standing there with my two best friends and my boyfriend. We all have been skiing together for almost three years now. We have gone all over the nation but never have gone true backcountry extreme skiing. I stood there taking in the amazing view. Nerves rushing through my body, Adrenaline rush was crazy. It was moment where everything is in slow motion because it is so amazing. All my life I thought I would never get here. When I was in high school I got a really bad concussion and was told I would never be able to ski again. That broke my heart. I loved skiing and looked up to some of the most amazing skier that were from Vermont, where I grew up. My mom was too scared to let me go back on the slopes because I would get to badly hurt again. I did not want that to happen either but It was my love. I thought I would never ski every again. My friends would always invite me to go skiing with them but I would be afraid to go back to slopes. Then one day my best friend dragged me out there and I was stiff but it all came back fast. The feeling of being on top of the world. Seeing all the mountains around you just taking in nature is what I love. Skiing is what I love to do. I just knew I would get back to the slopes someday and live out my dream.

Bad Day

I just knew the minute I woke up late hat today was going to be a disaster. Not only was I having a bad hair day but I had forgot to do laundry so the clean clothes I had were not very pretty. I threw my hair up ina ponytail an attempt to make it look less atrocious. I ended up wearing a sweater with a hole in the right arm. I tried to bunch up my sleeves so the hole wa less noticable. I grabbed my bag and ran out the door. As I got to school I noticed my stomach was making odd noises, I had not ate breakfast yet. I checked my watch I had two minutes until class started. I half jogged half ran to the cafeteria.... I decided on a yogurt. I walked into class just as the bell rang. Sitting down I began to open my yougurt. It all happened so fasst I was trying to peel off the lid and the yogurt container went flying! It landed on my teachers head with a plop...

I just knew tht picking up a mysterious glowing green rock at the bottom of a hidden cave surrounded by danger and do not enter signs was a bad idea. It turns out that glowing rocks are sometimes radioactive and the radiation caused me to feel quite sick so I threw it in a nearby lake before it could cause any more harm to me. Well at least I thought it couldn't do any more harm. Now a gigantic angry looking fish monster is climbing out of the lake with a glowing green rock wedged in it's throat and is now headed straight for me. I don't think mum will be very happy when she sees the new pet I got for her.

I just knew this was going to happen, right from the beginning. Let's go back in
time and I’ll tell the tale of what happened that Sunday afternoon. Right as I wake up
from bed I hear this rattling on my door. “Who is it?” I yell. “It’s me Tim”
“What do you want?”. “I found something really cool you have to come and see it”.
“Fine” I say.

As I get dressed and go out of my room Tim is standing there with a excited look
on his face. I go take care of what I need to and then I ask “What do you want Tim?”
“I found this really cool thing in the woods”. “What is it?”. “You’ll have to come see for
yourself”. As Tim leads me outside I feel the cool summer morning breeze touch my skin
like a ghost. I followed Tim into my neighbor's woods I say to him “We shouldn’t be here
Tim!”. “It’s fine they won't ever notice that we were here.”. As we walk on through the
woods I see what he was talking about. It's a huge pond that's crystal clear and has a
brook running through it with big green trees. Just then I hear “Hey kids!”. Oh crap

The Sight That Is Waiting for Me

I woke up and I just knew that today was the day, the day for something amazing to happen.
What was this amazing thing going to be? Who knows I just knew that when I saw that coral
orange sun over the beautifully pale green mountains I just knew to day was going to be a
colorful day of astonishment and surprises. Behind every corner there is something what it is?
Nobody knows but I just knew that if I kept walking I would find that one amazing thing that I
was looking for. What was I looking for? I have no idea but I just new that something was about
to happen I just knew it as soon as I turned the next corner and saw the ocean a shore line
speckled with rainbow shells, the waves crashing over the rocks, the tropical color of the sun
setting over the ocean the light reflecting off of the wet rocks making the light bounce around
and the sun sets and is gone under water the night has come and the stars light up the sky with
their smiles.

I just knew that you were special. Every since you were a baby weird things would happen when you were around. When you would walk into a room all the things around you would start to float. One night i walked into your room you were peacefully sleeping but it was weird because you and everything else in your were floating and when i accidentally woke you everything peacefully floated back down. We always though about it but never believed it was true. Until yesterday. Someone came to visit us yesterday. They told us that they needed to take you. They said it was not safe here for you anymore. You are going to place for other kinds like you. A different realm. You are not like the rest of us. You are magical and they are bringing you to the wizard and witch realm. Do not worry my dear you will be better there you can live free and we don't have to hide you anymore and you will still be able to visit us. We want you to be happy Annabelle. This is for you so you can be with your people. Your not weird your incredible and special and this is going to make everything better. You can be out in the open. You will learn to control it.

I Just Knew That Ball Was Life

I just knew that ball was life. Considering that my first word ever was 'ball', I believe that ball is truly life. The baby picture I sent in for my 8th grade yearbook is of me holding a basketball. Basketball has taken over my life. It is fun but, not easy. You have to work hard to get a future in the game of basketball. I work hard every time I'm on the court so I can get better every day.

I Just Knew it was Going to Happen

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 13:45

I just knew it was going to happen. The howling wind blowing persistently at the branches and trees. The greenish color of the sky changing the mood of the day from happy and bright to scared, uncertain, and uneasy. It was a given.

Out of all the people in town, I was the only one who suspected it. Everyone thought the bright, sunny and cheerful day would just turn into a rainstorm. Nothing more, nothing less. Even the weathermen had no clue it would come. The only hint they gave to something more extreme was "very mild flood warnings." In the past, these warnings have only ever resulted in the river rushing at a different pace, hiding the large rocks below, looking like it could sweep me away in a milisecond. But nothing more, nothing less. 

Everyone just continued on with their day. Mothers pushing their babies in strollers, children playing in the sandbox, pet owners walking their dogs. Everyone went inside when the rain started to come but continued with their daily schedules. Nothing more, and nothing less.

But then I heard, I knew it would come. I prepared by hiding in the basement where there was no glass or large bookshelves to cause any harm. I brought food and water down with me, because I knew it would be long. When I started to heal the wind howl, I crawed in the corner and put my hards over my head, just to be safe. I tried to convince my family to come down with me, but they didn't belive me. They thought I was crazy.

"It's only supposed to be a rainstorm," said my father, "nothing more, nothing less."

But he was wrong. They were all wrong. For it was something more, much more. I feared that hiding in the basement wouldn't be good eough protection, even with the cement walls that appeared indestructible. But it was my only option. I prayed, hoping that my family and I would be safe.

Suddenly, the wind picked up. The trees outside were flailing as if they were a boxer losing a fight. They lost the battle and started to fall over, crushing houses and cars. The rain poured over the roof faster than ever before. I plugged my ears, but it didn't cover up the screams I heard from upstairs. I heard a bookshelf fall. I started to cry. If only they had listened to me. It continued on for hours more. I still hid in the basement. My teeth chattering, I was scared to death.

When it stopped, I walked upstaris, into a new, terrifying world.

The hurricane was devistating. It destyed all of the houses on our street. I didn't see any others moving around. Tears were streaming down my face, I was devistated. Everything was lost. No one was outside. No mothers pushing their babies, children playing in the sandbox, or pet owners walking their dogs. I was lucky I stayed alive, but I was all alone. I didn't know what to do. If only they had listened. I just knew it was going to happen, that it was coming, that it was something so much more than expected. But I was the only one that believed the truth. If only they listened, we all would have been saved.

she didn’t say anymore, she has fallen asleep.

I Just Knew What I Was

Submitted by Writer on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 13:40

I just knew they were coming after someone, with the sirens and the loud screeching of tires turning the corner chasing after someone. I live on this road that seems to have a lot of police presences. No one knows why it just started happening one day. I can’t sleep at night with all these sirens that come blazing through my street. It always makes me wonder why these people are getting chased, did they do something bad like stealing or running red lights, but no matter what they always end up on my street.

My day always starts out calm and collected, I take my dog for a walk through the Forest Loop. But as soon as we come back there are sirens that no one can explain except for the criminal. I go to my job working as a waitress at a donut shop, that always gets a lot of police presences. There always talking about the day’s work of catching criminals and I always think to myself “I always wanted this job, but is it worth it?” Yay, that’s right I always wanted to be a police officer since I was alittle girl. When I used to live back in Oregon, my dad would always bring me to his work if it was a calm day around town. But now living in California, things are different, there’s way more police activity up here.

I don’t know people that well i’ve only been living here for 4 months but I have made some friends. But something nobody knows yet about me is that i’ve been the one committing the crimes. I know that seems odd right wanting to be a police officer and committing crimes. But I can explain I commit all these crimes because I want to know how police officers chase people and I think it’s great to see police officers chase people. But I never want to be caught so I blame somebody else for my crimes. I mostly blame the people on my street, they are the most vulnerable to be blamed they have been in jail so much I thought they lived there. Don’t worry,I only commit the minor crimes though. Like running a red light, stealing, breaking an entry and that’s basically it. Those may not be that minor crimes to you but they are to me if you grew up where I grew up.

My life is like a secret diary. I mostly keep to myself and never speak about my secret of my crimes. To tell you the truth I just knew that one day I would end up a criminal. The streets are calm tonight, the wind is slow and the breeze smells of pine trees. I was having my family over for the weekend, for a family gathering, it has been so long since I have seen my family. Everything is going fine, my mom and dad are great and my little sister annoying as always but it’s great to see her again. But none of them no my secret, and I hope they never find out, although it has almost slipped this time.

My family has gone home for awhile and now it’s back to normal days here in California. I have just got somebody else to take the blame for me running a stop sign. “Aren’t I just splendid.” I would always say to nobody in particular. Life was tough for me living alone in a new environment and new place. That’s why I resorted to breaking the law, it’s just life was tough with little to no money and where I live it’s no better, on a street full of criminals. My job is poor pay and it just seems i’m living in a place that no ones seems to like, the roads make these streets dump like. I know I have been telling you about the bad things so now i’ll tell you about the good things. I have made a few friends and I have a job. “That’s a great start right”. People tell me this all the time and I know I have a great life and I appreciate that really, it’s just it’s not how I thought it would be, I thought my life would turn out different than this.

But on a ordinary day I just knew what I was and what was going to happen to me. It was an ordinary day in the day in the life of me Layla Waterson, when suddenly everything went blank to me, it was the weirdest feeling I have ever felt. I was on my way home from work when I noticed it. I just saw it in the window of the jewelry store. I had to have it. But I wasn’t going to go pay for it because I didn’t have the money and I wasn’t going to get caught stealing it either. One thing I knew though was that if somebody else got caught for the steal, somebody I knew I could get the necklace either way from, was the first person I could think of.  Trevor Ramson. We have this little  system, it works great for getting me what I want. But i’m afraid I can’t tell you about that  it is secret information that only me and one of my friends know. Trevor Ramson. How odd right, we have this little secret stealing method that no one knows about except us well that could be a whole new story to tell. But back to that day I saw that necklace.

That day in April when I saw that necklace it was close to my birthday and I thought to myself “ why don’t you just buy (steal) yourself that necklace”. I knew I could get Trevor to take the blame for it it’s so simple “i’ll get you some money”. That’s all you have to say to him to get him to steal anything for you.  So the next day you stole me that necklace. It was one of the best days of my life. The necklace was so sparkly and shiny, with diamonds every where.

But as soon as I got home, I heard the sirens coming blazing down my road and just go to the end of the street. As soon as they go by my house I get a phone call from Trevor. How unexpectedly, it’s so odd and rare for me to get a phone call or message from Trevor. I pick up the phone and all I hear is panting and a very nervous voice saying. “Layla i’m so sorry just get out of your house as quickly as possible.”  ‘What, why, what’s happening.” I speak a little too loud and I can hear him step away softly then hear him return back to his spot. “ The cops got me and I told them about all your crimes and what you have been doing all this time.” I exhale very slowly and say quietly into the phone. “ What, did I just hear you correctly,you ratted me out.”

But before he could reply the sirens came buzzing down the street and turned into my driveway. Before I knew it there was a knock on the front door, momentarily pause then my door got kicked in and the cops were yelling at me to drop the phone and put my hands were they could see them. The phone hits the wooden floor with a loud bang and I put my hands above my head and turned around. As soon as I turned around I felt the cold metal latch around my wrists and I started moving toward the cop car while they recited something to me by memory. I think it goes like this “ You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can or will be held against you in the court of law.” I can’t remember the rest but it dosen’t matter in this situation, “ I’m getting put in jail!” I get put into the cop car and the car speeds out of the driveway. But now i’m afraid this is where my story ends because they won’t let me tell you what the jail experience is like.

 

Why didn't I know?

I just knew some things.

I knew you were my best friend. I knew I would give up anything for you. I knew you wouldn't give me up for anything in the world. I understood you, and your sense of humor. 

But there were also things that I didn't know. I didn't know how far you were willing to go for her. I didn't know that anything could make you change your mind so quickly about anything. I didn't know that everything could change in just a few weeks. I didn't know everything could change so completely. And maybe I should have known these things. 

So why didn't I? I didn't know these things becuase I was so blinded by my own feelings and thoughts. I didn't know because I trusted you. I didn't know because I didn't actually understand you or know you as well a I thought I did. I didn't know because I would have given up everything for you. I didn't know because I thought your feelings for me mirrored my own feelings for you.

I was blinded by our history, and my feelings, and your false promises. This is why I didn't know.

 I knew that this would not go well. I knew from the second I picked up my phone and saw the notification that this would not go well. I knew because, on that miserable morning of November 9, 2016, the man who had spent his campaign insulting everyone by white males had become the electoral president. What was already happening would get worse. The next week was full of get over its and give him a chance. But how could I give the man who has shown nothing but disrespect a chance? How I could respect the man who would he not respect the people of the united states. Now, I see what he has done exactly as I feared. Going against the constitution, using fear as a tactic of control, undermining the Judicial branch, putting people in power who will only harm the  US, insulting other leaders and so many more atrocities. But, I knew. 

How did I get myself into this?

          I just knew I was going to die someday, I'd been hoping I wouldn't but death in inevitable. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor 3 months ago, the symptoms have been getting worse and I don't know if I can hold on much longer. The Doctor told me, "Not to worry," or "Soon you'll be up and better than ever!" I believed him at first... Stupid optimistic thinking brain. My only thoughts from when I was diagnosed to now have been an internal clock but with half the nubers clouded over. Not like 3 months ago when I thought about dogs, my friends, and all the wonderful things I was going to do for my birthday. This tumor might have saved me in a way, it was like a slap of common sense saying, "You won't live forever! If I need to near kill you for you to notice... That's just sad." Alas I am not imaginative enough for that now, no puppies are going to overrun the looming shroud of death burdening my shoulders. My mom waltzes in, talking abouthow the day she has planned is  going to be GREAT! "We can read books, color mandala's, text your friends, fun right?" 

           "Of course!" I lie, i've been working on my fake smile and feel like it's been getting better. More convincing I mean, definitely not more real, nothing can be any more real then the life sentence i've been condemned to.

I just knew. I knew that this would never end well. I knew that nothing good would every come out of this. I told them not to go. I told them that I didn't want to go. But they went, and they draged me down with them. Sitting here, in the hospital, thinking out my life got to this point. If only I had said no and not let them drag me with them. This place was off limits. This place was illegal. This place is no where anybody should go or be forced to go. This place was nothing short of torture. The bare naked trees almost uprooted by the wind surrounded this place, in once giant circle like it was it's way of protecting anybody who had the urge to enter. The brown crunchy grass bared the ground that surrounding this place. As if those signs had not been enough crubmle the dreams of people who wanted to enter this place. This place of torture. The minute you entered the safe circle of trees, your heart beat would start to beat faster and faster with the scecond. So much that is would almost take your breath away. The eriee wind howled around you as if it was trying to take you away. Far far away. The building. The old, run down, broken glass filled, dark as midnight building. The worst of them all, the light that shown from the height of the building. The light that no one knew what it was. The light that scared them all. 

How did I get myself into this?

          I just knew I was going to die someday, I'd been hoping I wouldn't but death in inevitable. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor 3 months ago, the symptoms have been getting worse and I don't know if I can hold on much longer. The Doctor told me, "Not to worry," or "Soon you'll be up and better than ever!" I believed him at first... Stupid optimistic thinking brain. My only thoughts from when I was diagnosed to now have been an internal clock but with half the nubers clouded over. Not like 3 months ago when I thought about dogs, my friends, and all the wonderful things I was going to do for my birthday. This tumor might have saved me in a way, it was like a slap of common sense saying, "You won't live forever! If I need to near kill you for you to notice... That's just sad." Alas I am not imaginative enough for that now, no puppies are going to overrun the looming shroud of death burdening my shoulders. My mom waltzes in, talking abouthow the day she has planned is  going to be GREAT! "We can read books, color mandala's, text your friends, fun right?" 

           "Of course!" I lie, i've been working on my fake smile and feel like it's been getting better. More convincing I mean, definitely not more real, nothing can be any more real then the life sentence i've been condemned to. 

I just knew

I just knew that when the teacher handed me the test I failed. I just knew that my parents would be terribly angry. I just knew that I wouldn't be able to watch tv when I got back this test. I just knew that I'd have to do chores for weeks when I found out my grade. I just knew that everyone of my friends got an A while I failed. My heart tightens when I grab the paper from the teachers hands. Carefully, I turn it over. My heart beats faster and faster until. I see it. It was a 78.5. A C+.  My eyes rose with hapiness, I could feel the gladness shoot through me. I just knew that I was going to be fine.
