"Oh god," groaned Luca Edgewood. He glanced at his watch,. It was already past 8am. He dropped his skateboard, got on it, and rode away down the busy streets of Brunswick.

"Be careful today!" His mother shouted at him through the screen door, but he was to far to hear her warning. Lucas's mom was very suoerstitious woman who believed in witches, ghosts other Supernatural creatures. Luca thought all of this happened when his dad left.

Luca pushed back hard as he could with his right foot. He was already late. With all of his focus, he was barely able to dodge pedestrians, seeding cars, and occasionally,...

This song is for everyone out there who is having a bad day!


What are toi waiting for?
You stare at the four walls of this empty room,
Occassionally looking towards the door.
Mama is crying in the living room,
And Daddy left again.
You just got off the phone,
In a big fight with your "so-called" best friend.
And you're thinking to yourself,
"I hate my life." And then toi sigh.
Just curl up, put your hands around your knees
And cry...
***
Spread your wings and just take flight.
In the darkness, toi need to find your light.
You were born with wings,
Don't let people hold toi back
From doing great things
You were...

"What happened?" I questioned myself as I got up. I was in my bed; how did I get there? I looked around my small bedroom. The house was scilent, the usual voices of my mother making breakfast was not there. There was no smell of crêpes ou coffee as the usual breakfast was.

There was a bang downstairs, like the car grauge door." What are they doing?"I asked myself. I stretched as I headed downstairs to the kitchen. As I krept down further there was plus noises coming...

V The Bedroom
When Ember finally found a bedroom it was well worth the wait. A gorgeous raised four poster filled the centre of the room. The hangings were made up of crimson and indigo velvet square patches and the wood was jet black with intricate carvings of dragons, princesses and magical palaces climbing up and down the posts. The bedclothes were of dusky rose silk and embroidered with beautiful jewels of the most wonderful colours imaginable. Reds and purples green and blues, they shone and sparkled dazzling in splendour.
The walls were hung with beautiful portraits, satin scarfs and tapestries...

"I'm not small, I'm as tall as toi James!!!" I scowled.

James is the only one who also feels the same way I do about this dirty, loud school. He has dirty blonde hair(darker than mine) and smoulder golden eyes. He is a bit lanky but is very athletic, his long legs help him with his hard core track. He is probably the only person I can act naturally around. Especially when there is no Nick making me totally self conscience.

"Your smaller than Mr. Bova." He stated as he droped the book he had in his hands from his face.

"By height ou par wieght?." I snickered at him. My musique teacher is obese, very...

IV The Bathroom
Ember had been wandering aimlessly around the endless corridors and baffling twists and turns when she saw how dark it was getting outside. She would have checked her watch if she had one, but she didn’t so she hazarded a guess at it being about 10, 11 o’clock. She was exhausted and needed to find somewhere to sleep.
But first she wanted to take a shower. She hadn’t washed since she arrived at the mansion and it showed. Her soft skin which was normally a delicate pale porcelaine was now covered with a light layer of grime.
She had changed a lot since the fire. Her hair which...

"Nick play that part of the excersice again." told our band teacher Mr. Bova.

No one argues with Mr. Bova, we all think he's scary.

II The Kitchen.

Unsure where to go Ember dithered in the corridor outside the nursery for almost ten minutes the suivant morning. But soon the delicious smell of apples and cinnamon reached her nose.
She followed the scent until she reached a large old fashioned kitchen. An old, wooden table, worn and scrubbed filled the middle of the room. It was the biggest cuisine Ember had ever saw. One side of the room was simply all cupboards and drawers of all different shapes and coloured. Ember’s curiosity burned but she was distracted par a large woman wearing an apron. She was taking a steaming apple...

I. The Nursery

Ember lived in her nursery for the suivant few months, only being let out occasionally to go to the toilet. All she saw were the four walls around her but it wasn’t all bad.
The room was painted a pretty sky-blue and the carpet was thick, fluffy and a deep midnight blue. There was a lit and a huge white wardrobe with the most beautiful, démodé, old-fashioned clothes inside.
Rich velvets cloaks, soft fourrure stoles, bright silk dresses, every item of clothing needed to make a young lady of society look beautiful.
But Ember was not a young lady of society living in Victorian times. She was a...

Gerald wrinkled his nose at the earthy, mossy smell that always filled the woods. He longed to get back to his palace, but there was work to be done, and a king must do his work, after all.
“Hurry up!” he shouted at the coal black chevaux dragging the carriage. They bolted and took off.
Gerald leaned back against the soft, silky back of the siège and watched the trees blur by.
How grateful he was that he didn’t live out here, with all the faerie and elves and goblins. No, goblins lived in the marshes, didn’t they? But the faerie-folk, elves…still out here. He could feel them watching...
