Rushing wind blowing back my hair
Whipping it around
A hurricane of possession snatching at the long strands
The crystal clear blue
surrounds in all directions;
There is no up and down
No right way or wrong way
There’s only me
and the endless sky Continue reading

It’s five or six in the morning
Sighs, yawns, and groans fill the air
Car engines are running and droning
During the morning commute
The owner returns to the car

“I created this story based on a movie that I saw. The movie took place on Mars but I changed it to Neptune. When I researched about Neptune, I found that it was not made of ice and water but I left the story as I had it. I had a lot of fun making this story. I hope you enjoy it!” Matias

Once there was a boy named Max who loved space. Seventeen years later, he became an astronaut for NASA. His team’s mission was to go to Neptune to see if it was made of water. If it was, he was to take 20% of the water and bring it back to earth. Max’s team consisted of fellow astronauts Robbie, Allison and Hannah. Continue reading
One day a friend and I stayed after school to help our teacher tidy the classroom. When we finished wiping the chalkboard, I told my friend I would walk home with her even though it wasn’t my usual route.
My mom cautioned me never to walk the direction my friend lived, because it was a high traffic area. Despite her warning, I ignored Mom’s advice. Continue reading

Eliza Maxwell leaped off the bus and dashed to her house. “I’m home!” she announced, slamming the door behind her and tossing her backpack onto a window-seat.
Eliza’s older brother, Jacob, stepped into the room, his hands greasy. Jacob was studying to be a car mechanic, and practiced on the family van whenever he could. “Hey, Liz!” he called.
Eliza’s younger brother, Sammie, and the family dog, Squash, bounded in together—Squash’s nails clicking on the tile floor. “Hey Liz!” yelled Sammie. Squash barked excitedly. Eliza leaned down to pet him.
“We’re having a class party!” She took off her shoes and flopped down at the kitchen table. “My teacher says we all have to bring something to do or eat, but I can’t think of anything to bring!”
Jacob shrugged. “Well, you could bake those strawberry cupcakes Mom made for your birthday last year.”
Eliza gasped. “That’s perfect! Will you help me?” Continue reading
One evening our family joined my grandparents for dinner in Kerrisdale, a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood in Vancouver. After dinner I decided to walk back to my grandparents’ condo with my two year old son, Daniel, to enjoy some cool fresh air and the clear starlit sky. I knew the area fairly well, but though I was confident with my directions, before long we were lost. Continue reading
