Finish the Story

Here is a story I have , but you need to finish it. Here it is.

Hungry Hungry Homework

By Sarah @,


Once there was a girl named Sarah. She was famous for not doing her homework.Also she made up lame excuses for not doing it. Meanwhile, in the Homework factory a bucket of toxic waste spilled on the homework.Making the homework toxic,and that is where our story begins.


        CHAPTER ONE:


On Friday Sarah went to school everything was completely normal until the end of reading class. Mr.Geiman,The 4th grade teacher) handed out 10 pieces of homework. “I want you to finish this in two weeks that will give you 14 days”.

When she got home she took her homework out of her folder, and set it on the table. Then she went to get a pencil, but when she got back she found her homework on the floor and the table completely missing. Then the pencil disappeared into the homework


“You guys have got to see this” Said Sarah.To her friends Leah and Brandon.

“Okey”They both said in unison.

Next Sarah tossed a piece of paper into the homework and immediately it disappeared into the homework.

“That is the homework’s secret”Said Sarah.





“I have a crazy Idea”Said Brandon

“What”Said Sarah.

“What if we get eaten by the homework we can make it stop eating things and retrieve Sarah”s table.”?Asked Brandon.


“That’s a good idea,But we need to do it before my mom gets home or she will freak out.”Said Sarah

“I will stay on the outside to make sure nothing happens to the homework”Said Leah.

With one hour of packing and a 30 minute goodbye they jumped on the homework and immediately disappeared.

Once they were in the homework they started falling into a pit that was 100 miles deep.That gave them a lot of time to talk.When they saw the bottom they both screamed “Ahhh”               ,but the bottom was just a trampoline.

When they finally stopped bouncing a tunnel opened and a strong wind blew them in.





The tunnel lead to a room with a glowing Blue green portal. The portal was like a vacuum sucking in anything in that room.It took about 3 seconds to suck both of them in.Once they were in the portal they dropped into the Amazon Rain Forest. They fell so hard that they lost consciousness.




When they woke up they were locked in a cage.In front of the cage was a beautiful person. Hello, My name is Queen Wakanaka” Said Queen Wakanaka.

“H-H-hi”They both said.

“Why are you here”Asked Queen Wakanaka?

“We don’t know, we fell through a portal”Said Brandon

“If I had a quarter every time I heard that excuse”Said Queen Wakanaka as she left the room.

      CHAPTER 6

    THE 69 GEMS


  The next day,the cage door opened. And on the table  was a note, and it said:behold travelers find the 69 gems before the 9th day of November and you will not die.Then queen wakanaka entered the room and placed a crown on the table.The bad thing was the crown was missing 69 gems.

“I want you to find all of the 69 gems.”queen wakanaka said.”You will find clues along the way to help you on your journey. Then they left the castle to find all the 69 gems.


          CHAPTER 7


After one hour of travel they found two large rocks,So they decided to stop and take a break when Brandon found something etched into the side of one of the rocks.It said: Beware at twelve past two a stranger will try to kill you,but along will come a beast who will help you. The gems you will find only if you find your wild side.

“I have two questions. Question one is what time is it and question two is what the heck did that mean”?Asked Sarah.

Brandon didn’t have time to answer when a stranger jumped out from behind the rock with a knife,but before he could hurt them a beautiful white tiger jumped out from nowhere and frightened the stranger away.

“Ahhhhh,”Screamed Sarah and Brandon both.

“Do not be afraid I do not want to hurt you” said the tiger.”By the way my name is Celestia”.

“My name is Sarah,and this is my friend Brandon” Sarah said to Celestia.

“Follow me to my den we will be safe there”said Celestia.

“OK”Said Sarah obediently fearing for her life.

It was nighttime when they got to her den,so they went to bed.




When they woke up they found another note that says. Be glad that I came, but now i’m gone you will need to find your wild side.

“Whats with all the finding your wildside,”Sarah asked Brandon.

“It means you need to live in the wild using only the resources in the jungle to survive to find the gems” Brandon replied.

“Wow you’re smart”Sarah Said

“No I just read the back of the paper”Brandon said.

“Oh”Said Sarah.

After she said that the cave started to shake.

“What’s that” Sarah said nervously.

Just then the entrance to the cave was blocked,and the back of the cave opened and the rest of the cave collapsed pushing them out.

          CHAPTER 9

        BACK HOME


Meanwhile,back at home time was frozen no time ever passed since Brandon and Sarah entered the homework. What they thought was days was no time at all. This benefited them greatly because they had all the time in the world sorta of.



Back in the Amazon Brandon and Sarah had to figure out how to survive,so they went out hunting. About three hours in they found the large rocks from before but this time there was a different clue it said I won’t let you die you need to find my gems you shall find a cove with food in it. Enough to live for 10 years.
