Challenge 3 : What's In A Picture

  3/21/14  Emily's Own Lost World

    “I don’t know how this all happened,” said Emily Andrews sadly.

She was at her toasty warm home in New England, COnnecticut where she could smell the delicious apple pie baking all the way from her gigantic room upstairs. Emily was wearing a white tank top, and blue jean shorts with her hair tied back in a big ponytail with her long dirty blonde hair she loved the deliciously, strong smell of apple pie. It was that time of year when the temperatures can be tremendously high in Connecticut. Today the temperature was 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside. it was very summery outside that people weren’t able to go out without having surplus amount of water with them. While Emily sat in her blue painted room bored out of her mind. Emily had her laptop with a baby blue case in her hands. She was on Twitter at the time because she didn’t know what to do. She was planning an exciting hangout with her friend Serenity Grace.

“I’ve known Serenity for as long as I could remember. She has always been a great friend of mine.”  Emily said while talking to herself.

She kept tweeting and tweeting because she was getting impatient waiting for the scrumptious dessert her mom was cooking to be completed. Emily had a stomach ache the delicious dinner of homemade rice tacos that were better than any taco from Taco Bell that she had ever eaten.
“Emily and Grace come down for dessert.” said mother.

“Ok Mother,” Grace and Emily said.

They all gathered their plates and sat at the table to enjoy the pleasant, warm apple pie that awaited them. Soon after they were seated at the table their father came home from work that gloomy evening.

“Hello father how was your day at work?,” Emily said.

“My day at work was very stressful actually Em.” father said.

“Thanks for being concerned about your fathers day went.” mother said.

“Girls as soon as you are done finishing up the quite delightful apple pie you need to get yourselves settled down for the night because there's a lot to do tomorrow.” said mother.

Everyone was at the table eating their desert socializing while Grace sat quietly without speaking one word. The girls then fell asleep after they were done with the apple pie without speaking one word to each other at all that day.

“Girls it is Saturday morning and we have big plans for today because it is very bright, sunny, and blistering outside this morning.” said father.

“Ok, but do we have to now?” said Grace.

Grace looked like a pile of dirty clothes that morning. Her hair was out of her ponytail and looked like a rats nest. She had gooey slobber all across her face.

“Yes, you and Emily are going to bond today.” her Mother said while passing by Grace’s room.

Emily and Grace’s mother and father had made sure that they had their bathing suits, goggles, and other swimming gear with them while they had their dreadful travel to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.

“You guys do know that i am not going to interact with Grace at all while we are at the beach.” said Emily.

“Yes, Emily you are going to have to interact with Grace, and you are not going to ignore her at all. We are going to drop you guys off at the because and we are going to your grandmother Suzanne’s house whether you like it or not.” said father.

The drive took quite some time heading towards SOuth Carolina away from their cozy home in New England, Connecticut. Emily decided that she would fall asleep listening to her favorite band One Direction while they traveled to Myrtle Beach. Grace just sat thinking t0o herself why did she have to have an older sister that ignored her. They kept silent the whole ride to Myrtle Beach.

“Were here!” said mother.
“Yay!” said Emily with sarcasm.

Their parents dropped them off and made sure that they had all of their swimming gear with them because they’re going to leave to their mother’s house which is Grace and Emily’s grandmother Suzanne.

“See you later girls be safe while you're out here and socialize with each other,” said father.

They girls then went into the bathrooms where they got all of their bathing suits, goggles and towels with them. As soon as they were both done Emily ran out to the beach without a single care of her younger sister Grace. Grace decided to sit at a bench near the beach just looking at the bright blue water flowing in the quiet winds. Grace’s long blonde hair was whipping along with the wind. Suddenly all Grace heard was completed silence.

Chapter 2

Emily suddenly started to worry about Grace because she wasn’t bugging a single muscle in her entire body. Emily started to run as fast as she could. Emily looked like she was an official track star running at lightning speed. Emily finally reached Grace in a matter of seconds.

“Grace are you ok?” said Emily quickly.

“I’m fine. I just don’t feel like swimming at all.” said Grace.

“Then why did you have to come in the first place?” said Emily snottily.

“Well I’m going to go sit on a rock while you’re here alone I don’t want to disturb the peace.” said Emily.

Grace just ignored her wishing that she could just go away because she was annoyed by her older sister.

“I don’t even know why she is so concerned she doesn’t care about me anyway.” said Grace talking to herself.

A couple minutes passed by and Grace was looking up at the bright blue sky. The sky had only a few clouds that looked like puffy marshmallows. She then took a gaze at the luminous sun in the sky above her. Grace was so bored that she decided that she should make the most of the visit. Grace finally got off of the bench and headed toward the warm waters.

“I don’t want to be anywhere near her. I am going to go further away farther than anyone else” said Grace.

“At least I will be alone like always enjoying my own company.” said Grace.

Grace started to swim rapidly across the beach. She looked up at the sky again only seeing a few birds scattering across the sky freely together. She wishes that this was how her bond was with her older sister Emily. Grace suddenly stopped she realized that she was the only one in the middle of nowhere.

Grace was panicking she didn’t know what to do she was alone like she wished but she never realized she would be remote from the beginning of Myrtle Beach.

“Help! Help! Someone help I am in the middle of Myrtle Beach!” screamed Grace.

Emily thought that she should check up on Grace because it has been about two hours since she had actually seen Grace. Emily got out of the warm water and suddenly got very bone-chilling because of the heavy winds that South Carolina were about to receive. Emily struggled to move very radily because of the high winds. When Emily finally reached the destination that she believed her sister was in. Her sister was nowhere in sight and Emily didn’t feel great at all.

Chapter 3

It seems to Emily that there was one of the greatest storms in South Carolina history was about to strike and she couldn’t find Grace at all she began to sob heavily.

“It’s all my fault I need to find her fast before the storm hits and time soon.” Emily said tears streaming down her face.

Meanwhile, Grace was still in nowhere and she felt useless. She was trying to reach Myrtle Beach but she gave up on herself. She was so close to being near the beach. She could see the beach from where she was at.

“Emily! Emily! Emily! Emily! Help me I can’t swim any longer. Please help me! Please.” said Grace bursting into tears.

“Emily! Emily! Emily! Emily! Please Emily!” shouted Grace.

Emily started to hear someone shouting her name in the distance she turned around to she Grace shouting at the top of her lungs. Emily started to run but it was too late. There was a boat behind Grace that Grace didn’t apprehend  or notice because she was focused on getting Emily’s attention.

“When I opened my eyes, I saw that Grace got swatted by the boat passing by at the speed of light.” said Grace shakily.

Emily was about as far away from one side of a normal classroom to the other when Grace started to slowly sink and drown.

“No Grace I am coming for you. You’ll be safe. Don’t drown.” said Emily.

She finally got a grip on Grace and Emily swam rapidly ashore.
The parents had came to pick up Emily and Grace from Myrtle Beach. They were all crying in the car as they rushed to the hospital. Suddenly Emily’s best friend showed up at the hospital because she had heard about what happened to Grace on her Twitter feed and she wanted to be there.

“I heard about what had happened to Grace. Is she alright?” said Serenity.

“All the information that the doctor gave us was that Grace had a severe concussion to her head which has lead her to a deep coma.” said Emily.

They left the hospital and went back to the beach were Emily took off her shoes and set them by a nearby rock which she sat on thinking to herself.

“Grace is at the hopital know and all we can do is pray that she'll be alright. Serenity just make sure that you never take loved ones for granted like I did.” said Emily.

Challenge 2 -Read Across America



My favorite book is the Magician’s Nephew by C.S Lewis. This is my favorite book because it is so interesting and you don’t know what is going to happen next. Like Polly and Digory were at Digory’s Uncle Andrew’s house and Polly had touched a yellow ring and she had disappeared. So Digory had to do the same to save her as well and they go through a journey together.
