Chapter 1:Boredom & homework
Lina’s mom thought, “Okay, Lina’s homework.. It says to describe your child in three words... good or bad traits, uhm.. She’s... joyful, at least when she’s not mad and explosive, very artsy I’d say. But, I can’t say youngest in the family because, well that just sounds weird. Hmm... Ah that’s it! I’ll put that she’s... well, disorganized. Not the nicest but.. No more ideas left.” She’s currently sitting in her room, bored as ever, not having the time of her life.
She is sitting in her room just slowly drinking water out of her cup. Then not so suddenly, her mom walks in and gives her the peanut butter toast that she asked for. Her mom thought she was unhappy because she said no to a sleepover with her friend. Then her mom looked at Lina’s room and thought, “My gosh! Lina’s room! I should ask her to clean it…” Lina had thought to herself, “She must be annoyed and ticked off because I was begging for a sleepover yesterday. Ugh... just mom. But then Lina just asked, “What’s wrong with that?”
She thought about what happened yesterday with the sleepover, but with her cat Kittles knocking over couch pillows and rubbing her shoulder, she felt better. Lina then moved out to the living room, sat on the sofa, and ate her peanut butter toast as she began to play with Kittles. Then, her sister Kaylee came downstairs and gave her a careless (yet somehow peeved) glance.
Chapter 2: Joy of Fries
“OH SHOOT, I forgot I said I’d give Lina a huge thing of fries from fast food if she stayed up till 12 AM. I bet she did, BUT NO USE TO LOSE HOPE, I BET SHE FORGOT. Uhh….well.. More of that later..But what’s up with her room? It’s never been that messy in her whole life, has she gone crazy for not sleeping?” Kaylee thought to herself.
Lina thought about yesterday, “Dang, I should say sorry to mom I regret it now.. I’ll think about maybe cleaning my room or doing some extra chores for her.. I feel bad...” As she just remembered, She shouted out to her sister, “KAYLEE, I STAYED UP AFTER MIDNIGHT! YOU OWE ME SOME FRIES!!” She felt pretty good, “Man, awesome! I’m so happy! Fries for this afternoon? YES!” She thought to herself.
Lina got SO jumpy, “Uh-oh .. PLAN TWO...SAY I NEED PROOF, because I can’t just whip some out.. And I don’t have the money to buy them just because MOM won’t give me allowance any more,UGH...THAT’S IT, PLAN THREE!” Kaylee thought to herself.
She said to Lina, “Okay I’ll get you them, be right back Lina!” She replied. Kaylee thought “I’ll just draw a lot of fries because I can just name it, FAST FOOD FRIES FOR LINA! then BAM!” Lina was thinking to herself “YES, TIME FOR FRIES!” Hopefully I’ll get sauces! ..yum!”
Then, Kaylee thought, “This is too easy, I should honestly have more people like me! Who don’t really do the real deal! Also what would mom say about this.. She’d probably just laugh and say “Well Lina, next time you might need to be a bit more specific, haha!”
Then, she rushed into my room to get her notebook and pencil, “Alright! Time to draw” Kaylee thought. Lina then saw what Kaylee was doing, and she was between doing.“I NEED TO GET MOM” and “It’s just some fries not all that much cool down.” Lina decided she would tell their mom.
Chapter 3: MOM!
She then shouted, “UHH MOM COME DOWN HERE, KAYLEE’S BEING MEAN!!” Her mom rushed down with shock on her face that Lina had tears in her eyes. Oh no, Lina! What’s going on here? Kaylee.. She said not in a pleasant tone. Kaylee then explained the fix.
“So Lina you’re just being extra… privileged today, just because your sister didn’t give you some fries? C’mon seriously? That we can buy for 4 to 5 bucks, and you cry about it?”
Her mom said, “And Kaylee, you too! Lying isn’t okay. You know that. Don’t set a bad example.” she added. Her Mom thought, “So much for just trying Lina’s room under control, my gosh!”
After a few moments of thinking, their mother said, Y’know what Kaylee? First, no phone for a today and tomorrow. Lina, say sorry for being extra and hand me Kaylees phone to me. Kaylee said sorry to Lina and then gave her mom her phone before Lina could.
Chapter 4: Cupcakes
Then after that two days of waiting for Kaylee she asked her mom if she could take her and Lina out for cupcakes, her mom replies, “Sure, Kaylee you’ve been pretty helpful these past two days!” Then, as they go out for cupcakes this afternoon, Kaylee and Lina thank their mother and when they got there, cupcakes. “Enjoy!” Their mother said, as they bit into their cupcakes, Kaylee said, “It was worth it!” then Lina agreed. “Man Lina BETTER clean her room for this she wasn’t helping this week! Kids with their methods these past years, wish I understood ‘em. I mean, man that room was messy last time I checked, God!” After they ate cupcakes, they went to the park and Lina and Kaylee went to the swings while their mom just sat on the bench texting. Kaylee then stopped swinging, and went on to the play structure and went down the slide. Lina looked more happy than usual, but Kaylee on the other hand.. wasn't looking very happy. She looked rather glum, almost more like disappointed.
5.Going out to Buy
She asked her mom if they could stop at the store to get a birthday present for her bestest friend, which was named Luna. it wasn't odd to her that it reminded her of Lina, because their names are one letter apart, also because of their similar hair, and eyes oddly just for being a friend it seemed as if Luna looked more like Lina’s sister rather than Kaylee, being her REAL sister. Her mom says yes to going to the store. As they go into their car and start it up, Lina thinks about getting HER friend a gift, because she overheard their little chat. Lina takes off her shoes and Kaylee copies, “Hey, Kaylee why did you copy me?” She asked. Kaylee then reptiles annoyingly “Well because it’s not the law LINA.” Lina rolled her eyes, “how dramatic LINA.” Kaylee said with some sass. They go to the store Kaylee keeps blabbing and just trying to make her more annoyed. Kaylee gets her a super cute plush, extra soft, kitten, donut holding, BEAUTIFUL, plushie. On the other hand, Lina get her only friend a small trinket such as a rose gold bell, and, a small necklace. She didn’t feel bad for getting small gifts nor did Kaylee feel guilty for getting bigger gifts.
6.Disappointed but Great
Their mom paid for them and walked out looking at Lina, Lina didn't feel normal, she felt weird, worried. After they got home Kaylee was jumpy and spastic. She was so excited to get Luna’s present wrapped. Lina could wait a thousand years it looked like. She worried if her only friend, Lia, she was worried like crazy that she wouldn't like her presents, “A rose gold bell and a small necklace? Who would only want small things for their birthday?” she questioned herself. It turns out, the next day Kaylee gave her friend the present that she got her friend Luna, she loved it so much that she held it the whole school day. Lina waited weeks for her friends birthday to come, at last, 2 weeks later it became August 8th day, out of school. Lina came to her birthday party and had cake and icecream, and played, then it was present time, she had a load of them, her present was opened last of course. Lian noticed that she second that she opened and was it, she had the loudest shriek of all the presents she opened, she was proud of her gift. After they got in the car ready to leave, Kaylee said, “Lina, you had the best gift there. Most of her gifts were all clothes; I mean, how boring.” “Thanks, I knew it was good all along..” She lied.
7.Early Gift and Happiness
She had also thought “Well.. I didn't know all along I thought it was well, weird, tiny, and not good enough for my only friend..” after they arrived home, she felt so happy because she got a surprise from her mom, which was a new cat plushie! It was supposed to be a birthday gift but her mom decided to give it to her today. “Thanks Mom!” she said, “Your welcome, enjoy the gift!” she replies. As she plays with her new plush, she thought of doing something for her mom, “Maybe chores, dishes, fold my clothes correctly, hang my clothes up, clean my room and keep it clean for a week, anything like that.. I’ll decide on something different, I’ll spend extra time with her and I’ll be nice about it.” she said out loud in her room. After a short amount of time, it was Lina’s birthday, she had a very pastel party. She only invited Lia, she got her the best gift, even though it was only her Kaylee and her mom, she still felt happy. Her gifts were a pastel trendy water bottle which was from her mom, a necklace from Lia, and some kawaii kitty cat ears that were from Kaylee. She was so happy later that night, because she loved all of her gifts very dearly, and she got to stay up later than normal, AND lastly she got to eat her favorite dinner in her room, her mom allowed her to have food in the room because she use to not be allowed to. She claims that this was the best day, as well as birthday, in the 9 years of her very own life.

Title: The Graceless Gymnast
By: Devan Young Chapter One
The Water Door
Illani was in her room thinking about why yarixa didn't like her.? All she did was tie water balloons to the top of her bedroom door, so that when she opened the door, water would get all over her. But what is more fun than that? Yarixa should of thought that it was funny but she didn't so yarixa was mad at her for a very long time, and Illani was mad at her because yarixa said that Illani was being mean to her. Right before she was going to say one more thing about yarixa, she heard a knock on
her bedroom door. It was her mom that just came home from work. Her mom said, “It's time to go to gymnastics!”
The Gymnasium Smash
When Illani arrived she saw yarixa doing a cartwheel, it was the worst cartwheel she's seen her do. It was horrible but Illani knew that she was way better than that, in fact Ilani thought she was so much better. She even thought she was better than the coaches at her gym especially her coach. So when they were doing their back handsprings, she did one right into yarixas face. Of course yarixa told the gymnastics coach Ms. Michelle, and when she asked Ilani if it was true instead of saying “yes” Ilani told Ms. Michelle a big fat lie. She said, “Oh no, I would never do that I guess she just ran into me as i landed, like I said I would never do that.”
Yarixa went up to Illani she said, “Your my best friend and you know that too. The problem is that you are super bossy, Mean and your not being a great friend and your turning into a bully.” Illani started to cry she said, “I thought that I was being perfect I just thought that you weren't good enough and i wasn't thinking and I am so sorry.” Illani ran away to tristin, Tristin asked what was wrong. Ilani said that she needed a break from a certain person, but she didn't say who.
Right after that they were working with teams and Tristin asked illani if she wanted to do gymnastics with yarixa after practice, Illani started to laugh and rolled her eyes at her. She said, “You're joking right and any ways if we did we would have gotten really bored really fast. Inside she was actually trying to get herself to say sorry to yarixa so she was saying say sorry, say sorry, say sorry, say sorry over and over again.
Ilani thought about what happened, “Why would yarixa ever tell on me im her best friend and why would Ms. Michelle ever believe that I would do such a thing even though I did?, and i know it was wrong.” She felt so bad she knew She had to do something about it.
The Text Fail
Ilani finally got home and invited yarixa over to play, but yarixa said no because of what she did at the gym. She said she had to take a break. All that Ilani did was text back with this she said: “Well I didn't really want you to come over any way your not even my friend I just wanted to see if you thought we were friends.”
Ilani felt bad she wished she never did that because she really wanted her to come over, she was really sad she wished she could go back in time, but she knew she couldn't. She gave up on thinking about it, she was to sad so she just flopped down and then started to ask herself why she was doing this to herself, and why she kept on saying she was better.
The Trouble Round
Ilani just didn't want to get in trouble, so she tried to do whatever she could to make sure that her mom didn't find out about this, and especially yarixa’s mom. She also wanted to make sure that everybody knew she was the best without getting in trouble. If she did end up in trouble, she would not be able to do gymnastics until she apologized. But she knew she was going to get in trouble so she just decided to keep her thoughts to herself. Illani thought that if she snuck a leotard out of the gym that she wouldn't get in trouble. But she did. She got in big trouble.
The gym called her mom and said that she was a thief. Her mom hurried over. When she arrived the front office they said that illani tried stealing a leotard. Her mom shrieked, and looked at illani, took her hand, and stormed out of the gym. Illani crying and her mom yelling was a lot for her. On the car ride home it was silent, not a peep came out of her moms or illani’s mouth, until… Illani said, “Sorry” in the smallest volume possible.
“I said i'm sorry”
“My, my, my”
“I really am though”
“I Know but you know we dont steel in this family.”
“ I know bu, but, I don't know i wasnt thinking.”
“ No buts.”
Her mom thought of a consequence she said,
“You are not allowed to watch electronics for a week.”
“No ELECTRONICS for a week is what I said.”
It got silent again.
The Test Fail
Once she got home she calmed down a little bit and fell asleep to silence. When she woke up the next morning she got ready for school. On her way to school she noticed that yarixa was going to be really mad at her so she tried hiding herself with her big hoody. She also noticed that she had a big test that day, and she didn't even study for the test so she was searching through her backpack trying to study as much as she could before she got to school. When she got in her classroom she saw a big stack of testing papers on her desk. On her first page she gave up, but she knew that she had to finish it. By the 15th page out of 20 pages she felt like she was rocking it, but by the end of the day when they get their scores when she heard hers she was furious she got a 5% she understood it but she was still really upset. She also knew that her mom would be really mad at her because if she does not get an A+ then she will get grounded and she already got an F- and she knew she was going to get in big trouble. When she got home she waited for a knock on the door from her mom to go to gym. She needed to tell her mom about her whole day without getting in trouble, which was going to be really hard because her mom was super strict. Illani wanted to just curl up in a little ball and hide.
Her mom finally knocked on her bedroom door for gymnastics. Illani sat in her bed until her mom asked to come in and then she said, “Yes.” Her mom came in and asked her if she was ok. Illani said that she had to tell her something her mom listened. Illani told her that she failed her test and felt superbad. This is what her mom said: “I know how your feeling, but when was the last time that you studied this week?” Illani said, “ I didn't.” her mom told her that she was grounded but not as long because she told her the truth.
The Team Tryouts
Illani really wanted to be on team, she went up to the couch and said, ’’I was thinking about what i really wanted to do and it was to be on team.’’ The coach just stood there and didn't say a word and then illani said, ’’HELLO!?’’ and then the coach said ’’no’’ Illani thought she was going to say yes because she was so good so she asked, ’’Why?’’ the coach explained she said, ’’Well because you can't handle being on team because you're too mean.’’ Later in practice she got a note passed to her by the coach it read: Hey Illani I know that you really wanted to be on team and its not that you are not good or that anybody thinks that you are not good, you are actually really good, but it's that you are pretty mean and if you can fix your behavior than maybe I will think about putting you on team, again I am sorry.
The Coach Girl
When Illani got home she ran to her room without saying hi and started crying. She thought to herself, “Why would she say no?” I'm a pro gymnast and she doesn't want me on the team. Illani went out in the living room and told her mom about what happened halfway through she started crying and mumbling. Her mom said, “You’re going to be ok sweetie, and I might have an idea. Maybe you can ask the coach instead of competing ask if you can help coach the team.”
So what Illani did the next day she went up to the couch and said, “I know i can't compete on your team but maybe can i coach on your team.” The couch finally said yes.
Three weeks later. Illani finally starts to couch some competing students, she is doing very well. her students are getting way better so her couch told her mom that she is doing very good at coaching so maybe could she compete? Her mom said that it was up to her so her couch asked her but Illani said no, and that she was happy couching.
Five weeks later. “The competition is today” everyone was saying. During the competition everyone on the team was getting a 9 and 10. At the end of the competition everyone on the team got a metals. And at the very end they got put into the second round all because of Illani. Everyone was cheering and Illani was crying happy tears. Her couch went up to her and said “You did it.” yarixa walked up to illani and said, “You've really proved me wrong. Don't take it the wrong way, But before… you were a little on the pushy side, Now… you have changed a lot by being a better friend and by being a better teammate.”
The Babysitting Job
When Illani got home she called Yarixa. When she answered,she started talking right away. “Hey umm so you know how you have always wanted to babysit?”
“Well i’m babysitting some of my parents friends kids.”
“Well I was wondering if you want to start a babysitting club, just like the books. And we can even have a phone that they can call us on and have a calendar and money box!”
“Duh. I’m so excited, when do you want to start?”
“I was thinking we could wait until tomorrow after school and we can walk home together.”
“Ok see you then.”
When Illani went to bed she couldn't stop thinking about the babysitting club. She kept on twisting and turning, after about 5 minutes of that she just laid still and she finally she went to bed. When she woke up the next morning she got ready for school, when she got there she just did her normal routine until after school. After school they walked home together, when they got home they dropped of there bags and rode their bikes to the store. They got a bunch of toys for the kids to play with, first aid kits, and two medium sized pouches to put all of the toys and first aid kits in. Yarixa said that they could do the babysitters club in her room. Illani had a disagreement, she said that she wanted to do it in her room because it was her business. They were fighting for about 3 minutes until yarixa just said that every saturday we can go to Illani’s house and every wednesday they can go to Yarixa’s house. Illani finally said yes. Illani found both of them backpacks so that they have somewhere to put everything ones they get more things that they need.
Saturday December 1 2018
It’s the first day of their babysitting job. Illani and yarixa have to stay over night with the baby because the parents are going for date night. The baby’s name was carmen but for short they just called her Bobo. It was only 5:00 and they did not know what to do with her, she was crying for something but they didn't know what for. They remembered that Bobo’s mom said that there was bay food in the cabinet. So yarixa went into the cabinet while Illani took care of the baby. Yarxia came back with the food, Illani then took some and gave it to Bobo. She rejected it by throwing it across the room. After they cleaned it up they decided to put her to sleep.
They locked the front door and grabbed her blanket and went to sleep. In the middle of the night Illani heard a knock on the door, she got up and checked the front door but she didn't see anything so she just went back to bed. Once Illani went to bed Bobo got up, went down stairs and explored. When Bobo looked up she saw a man with a black beanie, black mask, black sweatshirt, black sweatpants, and black shoes. She screamed on the top of her lunges, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Illani and Yarixa came down with a baseball bat. They were getting ready to fight. Yarixa picked up Bobo and illani searched the house. Whenever she opened a closet door she stepped back just in case. Illani yelled to Yarixa, “CALL 911” Yarixa was right on it.
“911 what’s your emergency?”
“There is an intruder in our house!”
“What is you're address?”
“2624 SE 98th CIR VAN, WA 13245.”
“Ok we will be there as soon as possible.”
Yarixa called out to Illani, “Illani they are on there way!” Illani ran up to yarixa “We need to go hide. Like now” “I know where we can hide, follow me.” “Ok.” “We can go into Bobo’s room and hide behind the dresser.” They ran upstairs and quickly hid behind the dresser. All of a sudden they heard footsteps coming upstairs into Bobo’s room. Illani peeked out and saw the man. Illani’s heart started thumping really fast and her hand was quivering as she grabbed the baseball bat. When she looked over at Yarixa she could see her crying and holding her hand over Bobo’s mouth because she was screaming. When the man came in he went right passed them and into the closet. Illani grabbed tight on to the baseball bat to get ready to hit the man. She stood up and slowly squeezed her way out from behind the dresser. She swung it back and THUMP, he fell down farther into the closet. She closed the closet door and locked him in. Yarixa heard sirens she called out, “Illani they are here!” They heard the door being smashed down. They heard boots as the police searched the house.
“Up here up here!” When they got upstairs one of the policemen told her, “Thanks for doing our job and you should become a policewoman.” “No thanks i think i’ll stick to babysitting.” The police officer started to laugh. They all watched as they handcuffed the man and led him to the police car. Later that night she watched the news, she saw the man that broke into Bobo’s house on T.V., It said how yarixa and Illani were such brave girls to lock him in the closet and hide and wait for the police to show up.

And after my birthday what a treat.The next morning he woke up got dressed and did his hair, went down stairs,ate breakfast, brushed his teeth, put his shoes on , put on a coat grabbed his backpack, and looked at his lunch that his mom had made for him: chips, a note ,a sandwich, a drink and one piece of candy. Luke thought ¨ I wish I had a chocolate chip cookie that had just came out of the oven.¨
He went out on the sidewalk and waited for the bus he thought what his teacher would be like he thought about it intel the bus came. When he was on his bus he went to the back of the bus and there were some cool looking kids, he said hi. The other kids looked at him with a frown on there faces, one of the kids even said hey are you the new kid I heard about? I thought I heard you were fat. Everyone one the bus laughed even the bus driver but when she saw his face she stopped and frowned and said Nikimo you are in the front this afternoon, and who ever laughs at luke sites in the front with Nikimo, he frowned and she knew that she had won, she smiled.When they got there he asked the bus driver were his class room was. she smiled and said what is your teacher's name he said Mr Nadal she said room 19 you are lucky I heard that Mr Nadal´s class is the best for 4th grade. Luke smiled and said thank you and went to room 19.When he got there people were staring at him,he started to think people did not like him. he went to his desk and sat down some people stared at him, and others were to busy talking to each other, they did not care about luke at all.Finally the Mr Nadal came in and started talking about ST MATH luke did not care he just sat there and stared into space, intel Mr. Nadal said luke are you OK I just asked you something, and you did not answer do you need to talk to your mom or do you need to get sent home, if you do just tell me please? Luke said, "No I don't need to go home or call my mom, I just got distracted for a second sorry, what were you asking me? Mr Nadal said, I asked you if you know the degrees of this pie? The pie was whole. Luke said, ¨it is 360 degrees.¨ Mr Nadal had a smile on his face and said, I am surprised I did not know if any one in here knew it.When he got home he told his mom all about it. His mom was so pleased, she said why don't we go out for dinner and get ice cream. The next day Luke did the same thing over again but when he got in class there was this girl who was next to him and said take this and it was a note he looked in it and it said : Hi I think you look lonely would you like to play with me at recess and talk at lunch?Your friend devan.He smiled at her. Mr Nadal came in and said welcome to class today we are learning about how we all can be friends then we are going to type the rest of the day. Does everyone know what I mean and say? Everyone said Yes Mr Nadal except one, his name was Uasura, he was dressed all black, he had his black hude on his head so you could not see his eyes. When Uasura saw that luke was looking at him he smiled, it was a big grine, it was both and it made luke look away so fast that he hit his head on the table.Mr Nadal said Luke I think you need to go to the nurses office please and take Miss young. THAT MEANS DEVAN he thought in his head when he got to the office Devan said nothing and walked back to class with worry on her face. Luke wondered why. Luke was worried about going to the nurses office because he did not know what was wrong.When the nurse saw him she screamed, and said we need to call your mom. When they called his mom,and said that I was going to the hospital. Luke did not know why, he asked. They got him a mirror he looked into it all the nurses turned away. Luke screamed. Luke had a big scratch on his face it looked deep he wondered how he got it?He looked closer he saw something, it was going around his head, it was black, and looked like the shape of a big knife, he gasped the nurses looked at luke they saw nothing but luke with a scared face. Chapter 3 Luke did not see the knife anymore he looked at the nurses with a shocked face, he said “did you see that?” They all looked at each other and said no. He thought he was going crazy, he was wondering how they could not see it.He was going to the hospital to get stitches. He did not like it at all. When he got home he told his mom he did not want to go to school any more. His mom said I was thinking about moving how about we move to New Mexico? Luke looked shocked, he said, “let me think about it .” As Luke was brushing his teeth he looked into the mirror, and saw the knife right next to his face, itś black racing sharp blade was heading towards his face, he ran to his mom screaming. His mom asked what was wrong, he asked if she saw the knife she said no. He said that he was going to stay by her, but she said that everything was going to be ok and that he had to go to bed. He thought that she was just kidding, but she wasn't so he said that he wants to move now. Devan thought to herself on her bus : I wonder if he knows he has magic?
