Yay! It’s my favorite Day of the Week! It’s Write a Story with Me day! Part Five

Write a Story with Me! Is going full-throttle.

Are we having fun yet!  The answer is “Yes!”

So… What’s happened so far?

Part 1: Twelve year old Marci picked a leaf off a hallowed tree.

Part 2: She runs home and sees her pregnant mother and little sister Lauren greeting her father’s flying ship, one of the Planetary Raiders from a long voyage.  Marci gives the leaf to Janelle, a tiny person who emerges from a hole in the floor.

Part 3: Bethany (and older sister) is introduced. She is the villain of our story, and very jealous of her sister Marci.  She sneaks back home from greeting her father, and eavesdrops on Marci.  She discovers the illegal fairy, and prepares to use the information against her sister.

Part 4: Bethany is carted off by fairies.  A big scary beetle-fairy tells Janelle she has to come back to the nest with him. (He’s Janelle’s brother.  Janelle wants to start a new fairy nest, but her brother (Janosc) does not want her to do it, because a fairy queen is like an ant queen. Janelle says they need to start a new nest because their world is in danger.

Part 5: The next installment comes from the wonderful Miss Eileen Snyder.  No need to click a link this week.  We are posting right here!  Take it away Eileen!

Jodi looked up from the book she read and began to rub her eyes hard to a watery end. The street bench had grown rigid and hard and she shifted her weight and stretched her entire body with an audible yawn.  She plucked her eyeglasses from the crown of her head and with a minor adjustment they fit her face again.  She didn’t need them for reading; in fact she didn’t need them at all.
.
 Unexpectantly, a wistful March wind tunneled the entire length of Carlisle Street. Jodi turned toward the breeze to feel it touch her skin, it was refreshing. She caught sight of the unbridled ivy leaves fluttering against the brick of antique row homes that lined the narrow easement, not much wider than an alleyway and paved in blue cobblestones, the window boxes were decorated with cold weather pansies, bright yellow and purple. Their beauty was evident but their genus was no match for the encroaching ivy that clung steadfast to the masonry bricks of Colonial Philadelphia.
.
She thought of her favorite book on Greek mythology, when the Sirens of Circe flapped their leaf like wings to intimidate Odysseus and his shipmates. What lie in a hardy leaf, what purpose a leaf if it bears no flower? Does it not nourish the bud? Yet, its shiny veneer was a fitting contrast to the flat, red brick. Perhaps, a leaf does have powers!

Now It’s time to scoot on over to the Nederland’s with Mysocalleddutchlife’s Mikaela Wire for the next installment. Mikaela gets to figure out who the heck this girl is, and what Colonial Philadelphia has to do with flying ships, and fairies.  Well, I guess it all has to tie in to that leaf from installment #1. Ummm… Okay, Mikaela… better you then me.

Tag Mikaela!  You are “It”.

  1. Eilen – I am entering the story soon and want to understand the story. I can understand your approach to widen the field and allow for another complication to Marci and janelle’s plans. I look forward to seeing how Jodi fits,

  36. Nice going. This story is blooming.

  38. Well done, Eileen! You’ve really thrown us all for a loop! It’s beginning to sound a bit like ‘The Never Ending Story’ where we read about Bastien reading about Atreyu and the princess who is waiting for Bastien to save their storybook world! We’re going to have to color-code the different worlds, like Michael Ende did with his story. Good luck, Mikaela! :)

  39. Eileen writes beautiful imagery. I could see everything and feel the breeze. Boy, was I thrown with the Colonial Philadelphia! This is turning into some story! Good job by everyone.

  40. Wow! Okay, best wishes to all of you who get to keep the story going! This is getting just a little bit complex! :)

  41. Man, this is getting complex! :) Well we wanted a challenge.

    A big cheer for Eileen, and I can’t wait to see in which direction Mikaela takes it.

  42. Wow, completely unexpected direction. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out… :)

  43. Ooohhh!!! Aaagghh!!! Eeeek!!! – That’s me getting scared, the closer it gets to my week – there can be no planning ahead because every installment so far has taken things in such an unexpected direction.

  44. What a twist! I didn’t expect this, but it’s absolutely brilliant, well done, Eileen! :-)
