Nerf gun heroes- my 41st piece in 2017

“Bop” Jax pulled the trigger of his nerf gun and the bullet flew through the air like a lightning bolt. Jax had the best gun of all, the Zombie Strike Doominator! It had 4 sets of 6 bullet cases so that ends up with 24 bullets and it had rapid fire. He had just shot his friends Darcy and Sam when a huge hoard of monsters came running towards them, Jax’s friend Jack bot such a shock he fired his elite rapid strike at it, then something truly shocking happened, the monster fell to the ground!

As soon as everyone saw this they started firing like crazy at the monsters. Mark was firing his elite crossbolt, Jen was firing his Zombie strike Brainsaw and Chad was firing his customized modulus blaster along with everyone else. Jax was shooting up the most, he slide across the ground grabbed his bullets and shot like an absolute maniac!

After all the monsters had enough and retreated Jax shouted “did you see me I was totally awesome” over and over again “Okay dude we get it settle down” said Sam, but Jax replied “ I’m not going to settle down until everyone realizes how awesome I am” jumping up and down. “We got the message a long time ago said Darcy, “just to be safe” said Jax “I am so… “Jax!” shouted his friend Finn, a really intelligent boy with a lot of wisdom to share “listen bro, you were pretty brave out there but, you shouldn’t brag about it, bragging is for bad people and we know that you are not a bad person.

Finn’s words really got Jax thinking. He thought about all the action back in the battle and he thought about all the things he said. After a while of thinking he turned back to Finn and said “your right Finn, I need to stop bragging and be the good person you guys want me to be”. Finn smiled and they fist bumped, then Troy said “come on lets follow those monsters.

Everyone followed the monsters and they arrived at a small hidden place within some trees. Jax could feel the wind on his cheeks, the smell if the leaves and the spooked feeling in his gut. They found the monsters huddled around a group of smaller monsters, “that’s weird” said Jen, “shh, stay quiet” said Jax. They tried to move in for a closer look but then someone stepped on a twig and it snapped! The sound got the monsters attention and the little monsters ordered them to attack. “Well here we go, charge”! Cried Jax and the battle began.

None of the kids thought that they have been in a more intense nerf gun battle in all their lives. Bullets flew through the air and monsters kept crumbling to the ground. “There are so many, are you sure we can take them”? Asked Finn as he fired his mega Mastodon, “sure we can, we just have to stick together” said Jax. The fight lasted a really long time but the monsters started to close in and knock the guns out of their hands, Jax could feel the feel of grass on his back, the taste of blood in his mouth and the feeling that he will never see the light of day again, “well, nice knowing you guys” Jax said to his friends, then he closed his eyes and waited for the monsters final strike.

“Ha, ha, ha” laughed the small monsters and strangely all the monsters started to back away from them. Everyone stood up confused, “wait, what’s going on”? Asked Chad “you were totally pranked that’s what” and they took of their masks to reveal the faces of all their younger siblings! Everyone gaped and the little ones kept on laughing “we paid some guys to scare you like that and it was so awesome, we would do it again in a second” said Jax little sister Anne who appeared to be leading them, the little ones continued to laugh “ha, ha, he, oh-no” they were so busy laughing that they didn’t notice their older brothers and sisters pick up all the bullets, load their guns and point them at them, “bop”!

The bullets kept pelting the little ones with the bullets so rapidly that they were sure their whole little bodies began to ache. When Jax and his friends ran out of bullets they all let out a big laugh. “Learnt your lesson”? Asked Troy, “mph” said Anne “I think they have said Jax as he high-fived Troy.

Suddenly a large aqua portal opened up beside everyone and a large purple samurai helmet face with horns appeared inside. “You have failed” it bellowed at the little ones “yeah we know, but can you please forgive us”?! Asked Anne terrified. “You know that thing”?! Cried Jax gobsmacked. “Well yeah, he gave as the idea to prank you, and gave us this pretty gem to seal our agreement” said Anne and pulled out a large yellow diamond that sparkled with the glow of the sun. “I’m afraid I can’t accept your apology” said the samurai helmet “guards take them away” it yelled at the bigger monsters and there features melted to reveal half human half demon monsters! “What’s going on said” Anne as the monsters approached “I got some of my minions to pose as humans to keep an eye on you, now take them away” it roared and the demons picked up the little ones and through them over their shoulders.

“Stop” Cried Jax “you can’t do this, their only little”, but the giant samurai helmet shock its head and said “they have failed the quest and I gave them everything they needed, now they shall feel the raphe of the mighty Lord Magmaron”! Then the monsters walked through the portal with their siblings kicking and screaming. “Come on guys we have to save them” yelled Jax as he and everyone else leapt through the portal.

As soon as the friends jumped through the portal they were all surrounded in a crimson light and they could feel themselves falling and falling into it, and then they finally landed in some sort of arena. “Welcome challengers”! Roared Lord Magmaron “I suppose you travelled here for your little friends”? He said as he panted Anne roughly on the head. “Yeah give them back” yelled Jax “I will give them back to you if you can beat my kingdoms finest knights” he shouted as the sides of the arena opened and a hoard of rocky nights raced in. “let the tournament begin”! Roared Magmaron and the fight began.

The fight lasted a whole hour of bullets flying and knights falling but in the end it was the kids who were victorious. “There, we did what you asked now give us back our brothers and sisters” said Jax but Magmaron shock his head “there is one more challenge for you only”! Then some guards grabbed the other kids and pulled them out of the arena, then the back of the arena opened and Jax was horrified of who he had to face, himself.

“Hello” said the evil Jax with a wicked smile, “what’s happening” said Jax confused. “I can tell you what’s going to happen” said evil Jax as he raised his gun “your buts going to be kicked”! He shouted as he shot 3 bullets, they each his Jax in the chest and he fell back. The crowd went wild “did you see that I was totally awesome”! Yelled evil Jax as he fired again at Jax, this time Jax rolled out of the way at fired back, evil Jax dodged and fired some more. The battle lasted a while, “you can’t beat me” shouted evil Jax “I’m so awesome”, but Jax managed to knock his gun out of his hands. “Yeah, so awesome” he said as he fired at evil Jax with rapid fire, using up all of his bullets and when he did evil Jax vaporised.

Jax turned to the lord as his friends joined him, “there, we did your tasks now give us back our siblings”! Magmaron gave an evil smile. “Never”! The kids were stunned “foolish mortals you will never see them again” and he laughed wickedly. Then Jax saw a Shandilya right over the kings head, he grabbed a bullet at his feet, loaded his gun and fired. The bullet hit the Shandilya and it came down right on top of the king, not only killing him but the knocked the little ones down to the kids. After they all hugged, Anne said “okay, let’s get out of here” and handed Jax a portal device she swiped from the king, Jax smiled, opened a portal and they all jumped through.

“Squeeze”! Jax hugged his little sister so tight that it was hard for her to breath. Jax learned a very important lesson from this adventure, nerf guns, dangerous things and being totally awesome may be loads of fun. But if there is one thing more important than all of that it’s friendship and family.

Reflection: In this story a few things I think I did well was that I did lots of different types of things to make the writing better, such as linking my ending back to my beginning, using the power of three and I also though that I did a pretty good turn around in the situations.

100 word challenge 17- giant footprints, my 38th piece in 2017

We hear a scream and everyone comes running to the source of it; Kiley. We run up to her and we discover why she had screamed. There was a giant footprint on the ground, twice the size of a regular footprint. Everyone stared at it terrified, the teachers tried and tried to calm everyone down but it didn’t help. I didn’t believe it was a monster and thought it was just a prank. After some time they got everyone back inside, but as I walked back to class I saw something in the bushes, it had red eyes, giant fangs and huge feet.
