Winter Poem

(I see) Frozen trees scattered around the lake as the storm starts brewing.
(I smell) Dead fish in the freezing water as the lake starts churning.
(I hear) Wolves howling to each other as they group to attack.
(I feel) The snow splattering against my chest.
(I taste) A cold snow flake that landed in my mouth gives a chill down my spine.

(I think) The Arctic Isn't the place for me.

Haunted House

creeeeeeeeek! I place my foot on the old, rotten oak steps to the stormy grey colored house. Why did we have to go on vacation in this old dump. The 2 trees out front were dead and the porch was covered in cobwebs. But that didn’t stop me from turning the pure gold door handle. Suddenly the door swung open and a gust of rose smelling air impaled my skin. My mouth swung open when I saw the inside. It was a hallway made out of dark brown wood but the side table shoved against the left side of the wall was completely gold! “Well this is a paradise” said my brother Stefan. “Well lets check this place out!”.


Once I found an armor stand with a full seat of steel armor with gold braids smelted in.It fitted me perfectly. Then I found a chest with three pens and an empty quiver. I clicked all the pens and one turned into an axe, one turned into a sword and the last one transformed into a bow. I salvaged those including the quiver because it filled up automatically when I clicked the bow/pen. Then I checked out the bedroom I was gonna sleep in. The cover had a picture of a trident.The symbol of Poseidon, god of the sea. Then there was an actual trident on the left side of the room, with a sleeping black horse with wings. A pegasus. This place is exactly my style. Suddenly the picture on the bed started changing into words until it said something.
The believer of greek will find the answer
to theft or death the wall will fall
the passage of light will one with stand.
It was a prophecy. After all this stuff I get a profecie?
This place is haunted then. But how? Guess I’ll find out soon but first I need to think. The believer of greek should be me because I only believe about Hades and Zeus and all but theft or death? I’ve already stolen some stuff but I did not want to die. Then the passage of light, that should be Apollo or Hera. I’ll search tomorrow, right now it's time to get some rest.


The next morning I got dressed in a shirt with a dolphin on the back and black camo pants. As well as the armor I found including the fur boots. Then I slung my quiver over my shoulder and sheathed my trident on the other side of my back as well as the pens. Then out of the corner of my eye I found a shield. I took that too. “Now I’m ready to search” I thought.


I searched everywhere and found nothing. Until the basement. Besides the house the basement glowed with gold. Suddenly a red diamond came out of the floor in a case on a pillar. Slowly I snuk towards the treasure. The label under it said ‘ruby of Olympus.’ Olympus was the home of the gods. Then something dawned on me. The gods have been so quit because there ruby was stolen. Must of been Hermes, wait, why would he steal the gem to lock himself up? Guess it might of been someone else. Someone who hates the gods. “finally you figured it out” said a voice. But it wasn’t a humans voice. It was like a three headed snake talking at once. I spun around and I found myself looking at a three headed ogre. A hydra.
I think about to get company...

Shadow King Episode 1: Ghost In The Machine

YAAAAAAAAWN!!!!!! It was Saturday morning and I was taking my dog for a walk around the block. I was half way there until my dog started whimpering like he does when he’s scared.I looked around but everywhere was houses except there was some tension in the air. Then in front of us was something that looked like a lost shadow. The thing was hard to look at because it keep changing from a lion, to a falcon to a shark and back again. But it seemed to get bigger because it was getting closer until it was 5mm from my face. Suddenly it entered my mouth but it had no taste but pain replaced it.It felt like I was dissolving into nothing and I could see it was happening to my dog as well. My poor dog was getting hurt! Then the pain stopped but I looked different. A lord made of shadows with a steel sword and my dog looked like he had turned into a shadow with fire.then I realized I should be called something different. Shadow king…

Room 20 Item Recount

Imagine standing up to a whole school with over 500 pairs of eyes staring at you. That's what it felt like when we had to do our item on the 6th of June. We had to get to school early to rehearse one more time and we had to sort out our outfits. I was the host. So that meant I had to start it off and end it. While we were rehearsing a fantail visited and wasn't able to leave, so that made me upset.

My heart was pounding against my chest like it wanted to jump out and my legs were shaking like jelly.Nervous of failing my first line in the item, I listened for the light flutter of wings and the sweet chirping of the fantail roaming the hall like it was looking for berries. Then I took a deep breath and then spoke into the microphone “Welcome to the science show, I am Marcus your host for this morning.” Then the Item began. 11 questions in total and 3 scientists for each question. I seemed to calm down a little but I felt sad that a poor fantail had to be imprisoned in a giant room filled with students and teachers with no way out. Then Zayne finished his line as a contestant. Suddenly I was saying “Well that's all we have time for. Thank you for watching the Room 20 Science show. Good bye.” then I started shaking Ben freezing hands like I was rubbing an ice cube against my hand. It was bone shaking scary showing yourself to a whole school as well as doing an item about earth and space.But its possible. I’m glad I made without a muck up except that one of the microphones made the mistake of not working. So yeah, I’m happy.
