Here's the second chapter, everyone- enjoy!
Trya squatted down next to her slightly loony friend. Lye had waist-length, light brown hair and a slightly pointed face. She had wide hazel eyes, a tiny, pert, nose, and a mouth that seemed way too small for all the words that streamed out of it. Her delicate features made her seem quiet and soft-spoken, but Trya knew better. Lye had hearing like a bat, but there was a strange thing about her. Trya had never seen her ears. Once, she'd playfully flipped Lye's hair, but Lye had shrieked and pulled away, covering her ears. Trya was so scared she hadn't pressed any further. Also, Lye turned green very often- not just when she was sick- when she blushed, too.
Lye kept her eyes averted from Trya for a while. Not that Trya was ugly- in fact, she was far from it. Trya had narrow but intense green eyes, wavy, almost curly, red hair, a light sprinkling of freckles across her ski-sklope nose, and a heart shaped mouth- not at all unpleasant. Lye was just so startled. Ever since Trya had developed a strange little obsession for all things fantasy, Lye had been a bit scared. Did Trya suspect, or- god forbid- know the truth? She had almost figured out a few times- that time she'd almost seen her long, pointy ears, for instance. And that time when Lye couldn't resist turning all the dandelions into pansies, just for fun. Trya had almost seen her whisper a few ancient words, and the grass was dotted with purple.
Trya decided to try to break the sudden ice.
"So, Lye, what do we put in it?"
Lye jumped, scraping her trowel against the side of the hole and releasing a flurry of brown specks. "Oh.. um, first we need the letter."
The two girls had decided to try to catch a glimpse of some elves. Lye had taken charge, ordering this and that, a special letter to the elves, some wildflower seeds, an engraved plaque, and all manner of other things. Lye had decided to bury the plastic tube enclosing the letter and plant flowers over it, then place a sign over it notifying the elves what it was for. It wasn't a trap, as Lye kept insisting, it was a tribute. According to her, elves were too smart to fall for tricks.
That's it for today! I hope you like the story so far! Please comment, I'm welcome to suggestions, requests, ideas, anything. Bye!
Hi everyone, it's Lily. I was going to write a contest story, but there were some complications.. so here's a different story. It's kind of based on Ice Cream's story, but a bit different. I hope you like it! (Sorry, Ice Cream! But you copy me, I copy you. :) ) Trya is pronounced Tree-uh, and Lye is pronounced Ly-uh. I like funny spellings of names. Enjoy! Oh, and each chapter will be
Trya looked up from the hole she was steadily digging. Her friend Lye was shouting her name and haphazardly waving a trowel and a large green bucket. Trya sighed and stood up, brushing soil off her loose, worn, jeans. "Lye, why can't you walk over here with a wheelbarrow and talk in a normal voice like, oh, I don't know, A NORMAL PERSON? Lye just grinned, showing off her perfect white teeth. "Oh, I'm not a normal human. But you know you love me anyway." Reaching down into her vast bucket, she pulled out a rake. "Here," she said, handing it to Trya.
"Why, exactly, do I need a rake?"
"To clear off the leaves and grass and stuff, nut." Lye said affiably, sweeping her long brown hair out of her face. "Elves like neat."
"How do you know? Are you one?"
The simple, teasing question seemed to make Lye nervous. She turned pale pinkish-green, quickly looked down, and started furiously digging. "Just do it!"
Trya shrugged. Her friend sometimes went a little weird like that, but when she did she would usually snap back quickly.
Lye's heart beat faster, much faster. Did she know? She managed to shoot back some reply- she barely heard herself say it- and quickly started digging. There had been more to her words when she said she wasn't a normal human. The truth was, she was indeed an elf.
Ta-da! I know I barely described the girls, but I'll do that in the next chapter. I wanted this to be a bit of an intro, to let you know that they're really good friends to tease each other like that, etc.
Hey this is Ice Cream and I have chapter 2 for you. Kylie goes to high school and then she meets the most popular girl in school...Kylie Stewart! Lily and I had this idea at the exact same time! She was like Kylie sounds like the name of a popular girl cause we were discussing characters and then she said it wasn't like we could have two Kylies; we then thought it would be cool to have a mean Kylie who didn't like Kylie Ellis because they had the same name! She also thought of lots of things that could happen! Well, I hope you like chapter 2!
Kylie nervously held her schedule. This school was so big. Her school was a small school with grades K-12 and one class per grade. This was a high school that was probably 5x as big! Maybe she would be lucky enough to make at least a few friends and no enemies. She finally found her homeroom, J108:Mrs. Winky Proctor. When she stepped inside the class a short middle-aged lady smiled warmly at her. "You must be Kylie Ellis. I'm Mrs. Proctor your homeroom teacher. Why don't you go sit next to Kylie Stewart. I'm sure you two will be great friends." She motioned Kylie to an empty desk in the third row to the left of a pretty, blonde, and loud girl, surrounded by a large group of other kids. Kylie walked towards her desk and said a loud, proud, and totally Southern sounding, "Hello!" Kylie Stewart made no sudden sound or movement, neither did her friends. They simply stared weirdly at her. She continued on in a shaky voice, "I'm Kylie Ellis."
Hey! Since Kate won my contest, my next story is about a girl named Kylie Ellis who moves from a small town to L.A!
~Ice Cream out!
"Kylie come on! We have to get a move on!" She grabbed the last moving box from her bedroom and moved it into the truck. She was, unlike her perfect sister Bianca and her overly optimistic mom, nervous. Who wouldn't be? Little Dragon-ville wasn't even on the map. Soon, she would be in a large moving van away to L.A. Her mom had just recently landed a great job. She would provide food for the cast and crew of the most popular teen show on the network, Madison High. Bianca saw this as her big break. An actress on the show, Maria Jacobs was leaving to work on a movie. Being the most popular person on the show had created many opportunities. However, this meant she wasn't renewing her contract next season. The studio was going to hold casting auditions for next season and Bianca saw her mother's new job as the opportunity to get friendly with the show's directors, writers, actors, and the rest of the crew. Kylie secretly wished she could try out to, but there was no way. She was more concerned about surviving the 10th grade.
