Let's build a story!

The treasure of friendship

by Paula Mikas, grade 5

„WHAT IS THIS?“-SUSAN ASKED AS SHE POINTED HER FINGER INTO THE DARK CORNER OF THE ADDIC.

WHEN JAMES TOOK A LOOK ON THE FLASHLIGHT'S SHADOW , HE IMMEDIATELY RAN TO THE CHEST AND TRIED TO OPEN IT.BUT THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHERE IS THE KEY .

THEY TOOK THE KEY , WHICH WAS ON THE SHELF.

“ JAMEEESSS”- SHE SCREAMED AS SHE MADE A ANGRY FACE. HE JUST LIGHTLY GRINNED AND THEN WALKED UP TO THE CHEST AND OPENED IT. IN THE CASE THERE WAS A BIG BUNCH OF RUSTY , OLD AND RANDOM STUFF.

BEFORE WE CONTINUE WITH THIS STORY , WE ARE GOING TO INTRODUCE YOU WITH THE CHARACTERS.

THE FIRST ONE IS SUSAN; CUTE,LITTLE GIRL.SHE LOVES DETECTIVE GAMES, FINDING THE TREASURE EVEN THOUGH SHE IS OLDER THAN HER BROTHER JAMES , IT FEELS LIKE HE IS OLDER BECAUSE OF HIS TALLNESS AND FACE.

NEXT, JAMES. SMARTER, TALLER, BUT NOT CUTER: HER YOUNGER BROTHER. THERE IS NOT MUCH TO TELL ABOUT HIM , BECAUSE HE IS A SHY , SMART AND A PRETTY BOY. SOME PEOPLE CALL HIM A NERD , BUT HE HAS A LOT OF FRIENDS THAT SUPPORT HIM

AND THE OLDEST PERSON IN THEIR SQUAD;THEIR GRANDPA : JOHN.OLD MAN WITH SAGGY SKIN AND A BRAIN FULL OF MEMORIES

BUT LET US GO IN THE PRESENT. THERE WAS ONE THING THAT CAUGHT SUSANS EYE : AN OLD PHOTO ALBUM.

“GRANDPA!”- SUSAN SHOUTED AS SHE RUNNED TRYING TO FIND JOHN .

“WHAT IS IT , SUZY?” - JOHN ASKED AS HE SLIGHTLY SMILED.

 

“OH , KIDS. THIS IS A SPECIAL ALBUM .LOOK-” HE GOT INTERRUPTED WITH A LOUD SOUND OF PAPER FALLING DOWN ON THE GROUND.

“ WHAT IS THAT , GRANDPIE?” - SUSAN ASKED.

“ OH , THAT IS AN OLD TREASURE HUNT GAME. LOOK , IT’S A MAP . YOU SEE WHERE IS THE X? THAT IS WHERE THE TREASURE IS .”- HE ANSWERED.

AND SUSAN , THE LITTLE DETECTIVE SHE IS , DECIDED TO BEG HER GRANDPA:

“CAN WE PLAY THAT GAME , PLEASE?”- SHE ASKED

 

“ OK , SUZY , BUT I AM NOT GOING TO PLAY WITH YOU! I’M GOING TO DRIVE YOU TO THE STARTING SPOT. OK?”- HE ANSWERED AFTER AWHILE

“YES GRANDPA!”- SHE SAID FULL OF HAPPINESS.

 

 

 

“ ARE WE THERE YET?”- SUSAN ASKED EXPECTING THE SAME ANSWER AS ALWAYS , BUT THIS TIME SHE GOT SURPRISED WHEN GRANDPA SAID “ YES”. FULL OF DETECTIVE SPIRIT , THE DUO RAN OUT OF THE CAR INTO THE WILDNESS. THEY SOON DISCOVERED A TENT.

“IS ANYBODY HERE?”- SUSAN YELLED.

“GO AWAY!”- A ROUGH VOICE EXCLAIMED FROM THE INSIDE.

WITHOUT A WORD , JAMES GOT IN FRONT OF THE TENT , PULLED THE ZIP AND IMMEDIATELY DISCOVERED AN OLD FACE OF A LUMBERJACK.

“ OH , YOU LITTLE BASTARDS!”- HE SCREAMED AS HE GOT OUT OF TENT.

“ CAN I TALK TO YOU?”- JOHN ASKED IN A PEACEFUL VOICE.

“ WELL , FINE”- LUMBERJACK RESPONDED.

JAMES TOOK THE BINOCULARS AND WATCHED AT THE FOREST. WELL , THERE WAS. NOW , THERE WERE JUST ROOTS AND BOTTOM PART OF TRUNK.

“ DID YOU CUT THE TREES?”- JAMES ASKED SADLY.

“NO. OF COURSE NOT.”- HE ANSWERED.

“THEN , WHO DID?”- SUSAN SAID.

“THE MONSTERS.” - LUMBERJACK RESPONDED.

“ WHAT DO YOU MEAN?”- JAMES ASKED.

“ THERE IS THIS CRAZY SCIENTIST NAMED PETER THE EVIL .HE TRIED TO INVENT ELECTRICITY THAT COULD ALSO DO THINGS THAT NORMAL PEOPLE DO.. THE ELECTRICITY WOULD BE IN A HUMAN- ROBOTIC SHAPE. SOMETHING WENT WRONG . HE DID NOT PUT THE INGREDIENT THAT MADE ROBOTS CARE FOR NATURE. ONCE THEY WERE ON FREEDOM , THEY STARTED TO CUT FORESTS. PETER DOES NOT WANT TO DESTROY THE MONSTERS , CAUSE THEN THE OTHER SCIENTISTS WOULD FIRE HIM.”

“ WELL , THERE IS ONE THING YOU CAN DO”-THE LUMBERJACK PROCEEDED…

“ I’M IN A HURRY , I WILL GO NOW”-JOHN SAID

 

 

THE LUMBERJACK EXPLAINED EVERYTHING THEY NEED TO GET INTO THE SCIENTIST'S CASTLE , TAKE THE BOTTLES THAT HAVE INGREDIENTS FOR MAKING MONSTERS , THROW THEM INTO THE RIVER , AND THE FOREST WILL GO BACK INTO ITS NATURAL SHAPE , AND ALSO THE MONSTERS WILL DIE. THE BOTTLES WERE IN SCIENTIST'S WORKING SUIT THAT HE NEVER TAKES OFF , UNLESS IF HE GOES OUT.

“ I HAVE SOME SPARE BICYCLES , IF YOU WANT , I CAN BORROW THEM”- LUMBERJACK OFFERED THEM.

“ THAT WOULD BE GREAT!”- SUSAN HAPPILY ACCEPTED.

AS THEY CYCLED , SUZY BEGGED JAMES TO TAKE A BREAK , BECAUSE SHE WAS WEARING A BACKPACK FULL OF THINGS .

“ ALLRIGHT , SIS . “- HE AGREED.

AFTER SOLID 2 HOURS OF RIDE , THEY FINALLY STARTED TO WALK.

AS THEY APPROACHED THE CASTLE , THEY TOOK SOME MASKS AND PUT THEM ON THEIR FACE.

THIS WAS THEIR PLAN:

 

GET TO THE CASTLE

GO IN FRONT OF THE BIG WINDOW , SCARE THE SCIENTIST WITH THEIR BIG AND SCARY SHADOWS

AS THE SCIENTIST GOES OUT TO CHECK WHAT ARE THOSE SHADOWS , RUN INTO THE CASTLE , TAKE THE BOTTLES

CYCLE TILL THEY GET NEXT TO THE RIVER

THROW BOTTLES

 

IT WAS A PERFECT PLAN. WHEN THE FIVE CREATURES SHOWED UP ON HIS WINDOWS ,HE GOT SO SCARED , THAT HE LET OUT A LOUD SCREAM. SOMEHOW , THE VOICE WAS FAMILIAR. NOW , HE GOT OUT. JAMES , BEING THE FASTEST , RAN INTO THE CASTLE , PICKED UP THE BOTTLES AND CYCLED TILL HE GOT TO THE RIVER.

HE THREW THE BOTTLES.

HE WENT BACK TO THE CASTLE, BUT , HE EXPECTED EVERYTHING , EXCEPT THIS: THERE THEY STOOD: SUSAN AND PETERS DAD.

“DAD ? YOU? YOU ARE THE CRAZY SCIENTISTS?!?”- JAMES EXCLAIMED

“ LET ME EXPLAIN”...

 

THEIR DAD WENT INTO SPAIN , BUT THERE WASN’T ANY JOB FOR HIM.IF THIS EXPERIMENT WOULD SUCCEED , HE WOULD GET A LOT OF MONEY .

“ BUT , WE DIDN’T GET ANY TREASURE !” - SUSAN SAID.

“WE DID”

“ THE TREASURE OF THIS WORLD IS FRIENDSHIP.”-JAMES SAID .
