​Chapter 3

​Finding Mark

Good! Ian, you’re awake. Sorry I blasted you with water. We have to go find Mark. “I’m injured forever,” he complained. “You are not…” I said, “you will heal quickly”. “How?” he asked. I explained that water might injure him, but he will heal just as fast.

​As we set off, I heard some distant screaming. I figured it was Simon screaming that Mark was injured but I wasn’t sure. I ran to his house.

​”OF COURSE I AM IT’S MARK THAT’S NOT OKAY!!!” he screamed back.

​Simon explained to me how Mark was thrown off of a cliff.

​”Is he okay?” I asked. Then I realized how stupid I sounded. Of course he was not okay. Well, at the time no but he would heal. Then I sensed something. Mark just landed in the water. “Okay guys Ian and I are going to jump off this cliff and Mark will bring us back up it. You ready Ian?

​”Let’s go!” he replied. We jumped. The fall took forever. I finally sensed we were getting close. I looked down. Bad move! I landed face first onto the water. Mark was so startled he almost pelted me. Ian had landed ten times better than I did.

​”Come on!” Mark said.

​”I’ll stay here guys. I’ll heal before I come up.” I said.

​”You sure?” asked Mark.

​”I CAN TUNNEL!!!” I screamed. Ian and Mark started climbing.

​An hour later I decided to climb up the tower. I made it up in five minutes. The whole group was worried. Even Robert and Eric were there.

​”Where were you?” Ian asked.

​”Just for once Ian! You know where I was!!!” I said angrily.

​​”Oh yeah!” he replied.

​if there had only been another dinosaur around… Mark would be gone forever.

Fun App on the iPad by Matthew

On the iPad there are many fun things to do. The thing I am going to talk about is an app called Skitch. Skitch is an app that is also on the laptops and the other Apple computers. I use Skitch for drawing, especially for my history comic that I am doing. The book that I’m reading is called The Ghost of Tokaido Inn. I am using Skitch and Comic Life, the program Finn is using for Finnotopia, to do my history comic. I also draw basketball strategy on it. That is how I use skitch.

Me Job Chapter 11 (Twist in next chapter)

My story has been very boring lately, but I had to let some time go by before I let the story get suspenseful. The suspense starts here! Please comment. They are very much appreciated!

Chapter 11

We watched the movie about Chicago, Rian and I fell asleep out of boredom. Walking out of the theater my mom’s phone rang. She picked it up on the first ring and a friend from Colorado picked up. She had extra tickets to the Carolina-Chicago game. “Mom! You can’t turn those down.” I persuasively said. “I’m sorry Sarah, but we….” my mom trailed off. “We’ll take them!” She said. “You’re free for the game? Right mom?” I questioned. “Yes, Andrew. Of course.” My mother replied almost sarcastically.

That night. My mom had a meeting in the hotel, so Rian and I bought room service pizza. I heard a soft knock at the door, followed by the sound of a man with a deep voice saying, “Pizza!” A very big African-American man walked in. He was wearing a blue Matt Forte jersey and large Levi’s jeans. I accepted the pizza and handed the man a 10 dollar bill. The bill was snatched out of my hand and the man turned around muttering to himself, “Is that the little girl Tractor wants?” While we were eating, Rian peeped, “Who was that suspicious man?” “I don’t know Rian.” I said. After eating pizza and watching the Poinsettia Bowl between Wyoming and BYU. Rian climbed into the Queen size bed, and me into the pullout couch. When I woke up that morning it was 9- o’clock and my Mom was shaking me. “Wake up Drew; we have to leave for the game in an hour. I got dressed, put on my Raptors t-shirt, pants and a sweatshirt. We took a cab to the game early to avoid traffic.  When we pulled up to Soldier Field on Lake Shore Drive I sniffed the cool and crisp fall air. It was a great day for a football game, nothing could go wrong.
