“One day, while wandering off in the woods, I thought I found this animal I’d never seen before. I bent down, so it would not see me. I examined the unknown animal.”
Hi, I’m Anastasia Forever. My mom is a queen, and my dad is a king. I also have servants. They are really fun. I finally realized that I was getting more attention than my older sister (Sofia Forever). Everyone in the kingdom always wondered why my family’s last name is Forever. No one really knows actually. But I think it’s a cool last name. Sometimes when I go to school, I pretty much know all the answers. Most of the time I usually wander off in the woods by myself.
One day, while wandering off in the woods, I thought I found this animal I’d never seen before. I bent down, so it would not see me. I examined the unknown animal. It looked like a wolf. But instead the wolf had the same exact mark that was by my eye. Was this my own type of animal?!
The animal got closer to me, and the animal said my name.
“H — how do you know my name?” I said with fear in my voice.
“Do not be afraid. I’ve been by your side since the day you were born.”
I felt kind of nervous at first, but I started to believe the unknown animal. I actually had fun with the unknown animal.
Before I left, I stopped.
“Wait, I never asked you your name.”
“Well, my name is Emily Forever.”
That really made me wonder. Why does she have the same name?
The next day, I went over to the woods to see the unknown animal. The animal came out. Before I could say anything, the unknown animal gave me a necklace.
“Use this if you want to get in contact with me anytime of the day.”
Before I could say anything, she said, “If you see any other animals like me, our animal names are jewel ivy.”
I finally said something, “Thank you!”
As soon as I came home, Sofia was in my room.
I said, “Hey! What are you doing in my room?!”
“Tell me where you’ve been for the past days, and I’ll get out.”
I felt annoyed by her disgusting behavior. “I won’t tell you where I’ve been because it is none of your business!”
“Well, if you don’t tell me, I will tell your teacher you cheated on your test!”
“You would not dare!”
Before she could take another step, I trapped her in the dungeon for two hours straight. We were allowed to do that to each other. I was glad she did not notice my necklace…
After a couple of hours, I let her free of course. She told on me. I called Emily with my necklace before I could get in trouble. I put some sporty clothes on. I hopped on Emily and escaped from the castle. I was so tired I fell asleep on Emily.
Hours later, I woke up. I was hungry, so I decided to eat.
I asked Emily if she could take me back, but she said, “I must show you something.”
I agreed to let her take me there.
When she said that word, I felt like there was color to it.
She said this, “River is magical.”
I felt a little a bit of a shiver go down my spine. It was really cold. I fell fast asleep…
When I woke up, she took me straight home without saying anything. Before I went back on my porch, she told me to clap three times to a beat. I did what she told me to. When I did what she told me too, I went invisible.
“Cool!” I said.
I snuck into Sofia’s room, and I saw her crying. I asked her why she was crying. She got a low score on her test. She printed out a copy for me to do. I did it, and she came back home with a 100. My parents were full of joy!
Sofia was in her room crying. Mom, Dad, and I went to check up on her. My mom and dad sent her to the dungeon while we were feasting on delicious food, while Sofia was sobbing sadly.
I kind of felt bad in a way. I always wondered why my older sister got treated differently.
The next day at school, our teacher Mrs. Villa asked the class what their favorite type of animal was. I politely raised my hand.
I said, “Jewel ivy.”
The teacher looked at me like I was crazy or something. I said it was real. I called Emily with the necklace she gave me.
Emily crashed through the wall and was in the class. My teacher fainted. The whole class was surprised. When class was dismissed, a whole crowd came running up to me and asked what my necklace could do and where I got it from. For the first time, I felt like I meant something to my school.
As soon as I got back home, I rushed to my room and jumped on my bed. Relief!!! I changed into my sporty clothes and called Emily with my star necklace. She came. I hopped on her back, and we headed to that magical river.
We got there. I hopped in the water and started to splash Emily. She disappeared.
“Where did she go?”
Before I could finish what I was saying, she jumped up behind me and threw a big wave at me. I laughed. I was soaked. I went home and put my cozy p.j.’s on and fell into a deep sleep.
The next day it was Saturday. I decided to play on my laptop when I noticed that someone had done something to my laptop. I clicked on a video. It was my sister who sent me a video. I listened. She said she would get revenge. I was scared, so I told my parents, and they told me it would be okay. I was scared of my older sister who I was never scared of. I was so surprised…
The next day I went to school. My teacher asked me to speak with her, so I did. She asked me to take off my necklace and put it in my bag. We had a test today. She gave me the test, and I started to take the test. The next day we got the scores, and of course I got a 100. When I got home, my sister said that she found out where I been every day. I was super frightened. So, she told me I had to bring her. I said I was sorry so many times, but she decided to just laugh.
Right at that moment, my mom came in the room saying, “Hide hide hide!”
I did not know what was going on, so we just hid under my bed. I asked what was going on, and she said that our kingdom was having a war with my dad’s brother’s kingdom (Uncle Charles). I was disappointed. I always relied on him.
My mother said that we might have to use the secret door under my bed to have safety for now. We landed in the secret room and waited for two days. Our messenger had bad news for us. My dad would not be coming back until the next two years. My mom did a really long sigh. Sofia cried, and I just did the silent treatment…
The next day, I didn’t go to school. I was very sad. I would not be able to see my dad in the next two years. I did not do anything. I just sat there thinking. One day I told myself, Wait, what about Emily?! I jumped out of bed and ran to the cave. She was sitting there with my sister?!
For the rest of the day I just stared at the ceiling. But something unordinary happened. My father was back?! Wait, wait, what was going on! They pranked me. I was so angry I stormed off to my room, and I just decided to talk to Emily. I went to the cave, and she wasn’t there. I felt confused because she was usually there. I decided to go back to the castle. But when I got to the castle, no one was there either. So I decided to go lay in my bed and go to bed.
It was a couple of weeks, and I still hadn’t seen anyone. I just wanted to see my family and Emily again, so I decide to go on a short adventure. The first stop was the magical river! I checked there. I didn’t really see anything. But I did see the paw prints of Emily. I decided to follow them. There was a puzzle. I looked around, and when I did, I saw something that would help me solve the puzzle. I solved it. Then a door opened. I crossed the swap. And I saw them. Wait, a surprise party.
They all said, “SURPRISE!!!”
I was so happy. My parents told me that Emily was my great-grandma. Everything went great ever since.
