      There once was a guy named Ted who was a daredevil. He would jump off buildings but always put out his parachute at the last second just so he wouldn’t die. He was a crazy maniac. He also once sled down Mount Everest, he only fell once and got injured but not enough for him to stop. He just kept going. He was very brave. He flew up in the air from a rocket and put five bouncy castles on top of each other on the ground. Whatever goes up must come down. It was a risky move but he just almost missed the bouncy castles. He didn’t get hurt one bit.

      was about to jump off the train when every one yelled don’t do it, he ignored them and jumped, he broke every bone in his body. He was in a coma for two years, they were about to pull the plug when he woke up. He started to get his memory back. He decided to try a new stunt, he went to the top of the airport with a helicopter below with its wings going full speed. He would try to jump through the blades and then landing in a shark tank with flesh eating sharks. He was about to jump when he changed his mind, because he wanted to jump from a plane with out his parachute. He was up in the plane going to jump he did. Faster he went down the sky as fast as a speeding bullet. Smash, every one thought he was dead they went around the corner into someones back yard and saw him swimming in the pool.

    • Alex says:

      He was ready. But his suit got caught and he had to get off before the train fell off the tracks wear a gap was. He got his suit uncaught but he could not jump off the train where he was. So he had to climb on the side of the train while the train was falling off the tracks. He jumped at the end of the train and hit the hot metal tracks and seared his elbows and hands. He was in the hospital for five months. that did not stop him from doing what he does. It didn’t even scary him.

      • Mr. Bell says:

        Isaac punctuation is required otherwise this is a run on sentence which is hard to read let alone understand and can be confusing for the reader not to mention that Grade 7 students have seen and written many many sentences and know how to capitalize and punctuate

        The comment above is an example of a horrible run on sentence. Do not write in this manner.

    • Keira :) says:

      The evil milk monster ripped open the net and chugged down the milk , it ran back into the forest that it lived in. When all the towns people were sleeping and the guards were switching shifts it snuck into the town and started destroying all the land with the houses and farms and all that stuff. People started running around in a mad motion. The monster was killing people and hurting people. Finally a few people got out of the village and ran away. The milk monster was the new king and had all the milk in the world! The village people were his slaves and the milk monster made them breed cows.

    • Alex says:

      It did not work. So the hairy milk monster got all that milk. The town would make a different plan using pulleys to catch him.”This plan with not fail because it is better and smarter than our first one”, a town person said. So before the hairy milk monster came, the town made a trap. The town waited for days. After five days they thought he would stop coming but no. He did come. they did not expect him but they still caught him. He was angry and wanted some milk. The town did not give him milk yet. The town took him to the forest to his home and gave him a life long supply of milk. the milk monster never cane to the town again

      his paw slipped and he almost fell but he got his grip again. He new he wouldn’t be able to get up the whole way on the outside so he jumped in an open window. He looked down the hall way and the security guard was at the end so he hid be hind a beam. When the guard moved on he ran down the hall, he looked right and then he looked left, the coast was clear he continued on his journey. He found a stair way but had to find a way to open it. He thought he would trick the security guard when he came back so barf field waited. when the security guard got back he saw Barf field and chased him so barf field hid around a corner right by the stairs so the guard thought he went there. When the guard opened the stairs and looked up and saw nothing he ran down barf field went up and sneaked by the guard. He was at the top of the building and saw the pizza, he ran for it he got it and was hugging it and spinning around in circles. The guard opened the door and ran after barf field, barf field jumped off the building and landed in a truck full of pizza. THE END

      • "KOLTON!!!!!" says:

        But the pizza was really cold and it froze barf field to death. 100 years latter barf field thawed out and came back to life. But he was super hungry. He went to the nearest pasta place. Barf field stopped liking pizza 2 years before he got thawed out of ice. But when he got to he pasta place the manager said NO cats allowed. Barf field was very sad he clawed the manager then walked off a big icy, rocky cliff and died. THE END

He went back to the tower and started to climb Barfeild climbed and climbed. He was half way up when he saw a big juicy bird. Barfeild reached out to get the bird, but once he reached out he almost fell, soo he kept climbing. Barfeild made it to the top and once he got there he could smell the pizza, Barfeild started running but he couldn’t move. The glue had got stuck to the ground. He tried everything to get out but he couldn’t , soo he started to lick the clue away. He licked away and 1 hour later he finally got the pizza and ate it. After Barfeild ate the pizza he found a parachute soo he could get off the tower. He put the parachute on and jumped off the pulled the cord and floated to his house.

    • Ashley (: says:

      He went up to the top of the building by climbing a latter. Barf field was tyring so hard to get that pizza because he was so hungry! On the roof of the building he found a door on the ground , he climbed into the pizza place , so quietly, hoping that the security would not hear him. He came to a stop , he seemed to be in a storage room. Barf field tried to find his way out. He did! But he still could not smell or see that delicious cheese and anchovy pizza. All he could see is people walking around, these people were wearing white uniforms. Suddenly Barf field saw the pizza , But the chef was handing the pizza into a customers hand. Barf field quickly followed the customer. The girl went into a cab. Barf field was determined to get that pizza so he followed in the back of the cab. The cab went to an apartment.

    • nicolas says:

So his owner called him in and and he went to bed. And fell fast asleep in a worm bed beside his owner.

    In a world were there is so much awesomeness. One person will risk his glasses to save the universe from total bad things that will come to earth from the depths of the star wars generation. He will have to ninja past Darth Vadar to get the legendary button that will send the star wars people back to where they came from.

    • jaxson/ninja/nosxaj? says:

      But there is one hope his name was Retyl. Retyl was the bravest cyborg in all of Darth Vader’s Kingdom . He said, I’m going to slay Darth Vader. And then on they came together and had a tea party.
      And then they started to get to know each other.”Wow this is really funish”,said Retyl. Darth Vader
      said, we are best friends you know what we should go to the awesome beast like amusement park.”And that’s when it happened Retyl took out his double sided blueish greenish lightsaber. Then he shanked Darth Vader in the back and Retyl started laughing his head off and started yelling out noob and ran away and Retyl went crazy and eventually he shanked himself. And then so on and so forth. The END.

    • nadroj/jordan says:

      Reply:Glen the one that will risk his glasses has bin jumping on a diving board for an hour to try and get high enough to get to the ship. Glen finally jumped and made it to outer space and saw the ship. The ship was located on a small planet called “The Thing up there” The Thing up there was inside a snow globe. Glen opened the snow globe and took of his space suit. He did 50 backflips in one spot then opened the door and threw up. When his stomach calmed down put on his ninja suit and took his swords out of and pocket, unfolded them, opened the nosel, and blew them up. He ran all the way to the chamber where the kept the button. Glen was staring at Darth Vader and waited and waited and waited. Darth Vader finally went to the bathroom. Glen thought it was a good time to get the button but then Anakin Skywalker stepped out of a room and took his place.

      Part I : Beginnings. (star wars music) one day a man named George Lucas made a movie called “Star Wars” little did he know his characters were about to come to life. Part II : attack of the clones. When everybody was on coffee break the guy that played all the clones started multiplying and soon there were millions of storm troopers murdering people except the person that played darth vader. They put on there amour and took over the world (insert evil laugh). Part III :The Survivor. To be totally honest there was one survivor and he was were pathetic his name was Raul The Stupid or for short R.T.S and it was his job to destroy darth vader and his army. He grabbed his little league base bat that said loser on it and went out to take the empire down. Part IV: The Battle. Raul ran into darth vader’s house and killed all the storm troopers then walked in to vader’s room and saw him in the middle of a love moment. Vader got up and though Raul against the wall then force choked him. At that time raul was desperate at that time so he grabbed vader’s light saber and stabbed vader. Part V: ending. After vader died Raul ran to the magic button and sent all the “Star Wars” people home

      the end

      • cool c says:

        The one hope to save the world is Joe. One of the other people named John set out with everybody else who was going with Joe to get the button,but Darth Vader was paying John to sabotage the mission. So John rigged the rocket to blow up when he touched the detonator. So when they made to the Death Destroyer he blew up the ship that was also a signal for the storm troopers to attack. So when the storm troopers came he started shooting at his”teammates”so Darth Vader’s team won and the name John inspires fear in all. THE END.

    Once upon a time there was a princess who was the ugliest princess ever. Until one day there was a girl named Medusa came and turned her into stone, and then people wouldn’t have to look. But Medusa started destroying the princesses village and Medusa made the village promise that they would have to look at the princess for ever.

    • nadroj/jordan says:

      Jaxson’s Story: Medusa made everyone bow down to her. She made everyone make sculptures of her and she made the village make a castle of solid blood. If the villagers did not make the castle she would turn them into stone or make them pick someones nose. She would force them to conjure up potions of pure evil so she can conquer the village. The potions that the people had to make for her would hypnotize them all. She didn’t know why she wanted the people to make the potions because they would already do what she said. And that is the story of how Medusa conquered the village.

    • keenan says:

      One day though when Steve had to go look at the princess he died because the stone of her squashed him. The stone of the princess broke and she was alive again. So Medusa came over but, the princess grabbed a mirror. Medusa was smart not to make her into stone because then it would reflect and hit her. The princess told every one to go home because she didn’t know why every one was there. Then surprisingly Medusa shot and hit the mirror and reflected and hit her. Then the princess went down to the town. She found out that the were all lined up to look at her to see how ugly she is.

    • Remmy koocha says:

      But there is one Medusa fears. Her tongue he is Dovakiin, dragonborn . The day Dovakiin was born Medusa attacked his village killing everybody but himself. Dovakiin grew up to be a great man .being raised by himself he adapted to the cold snow and found the finest weapons and amour and swore the he would kill Medusa. He went to the nearest village to get directions to Medusa’s house. He ran to Medusa’s house and saw her about to turn the princess into stone. Medusa dropped the princess and ran to Dovakiin and he yelled “Fus Ro Dah” and Medusa’s head came right of. Dovakiin went to go kiss the princess but went he took every thing of her face lights lit up ,music sounded and a loud voice said “you just got punked”

    Once upon a time there was a a magical creature that had the power of never dieing. Well at least thats what we think. His name was Minch. He had a best friend who was a unicorn. Minch lived in a huge forest that him and Munck, the unicorn spent all of their time in. He was the most powerful creature in the forest. The wicked witch of the east, Lucina has been trying for years to destroy Minch. Lucina has fifteen minions , they are flying purple pigs. Minch is very scared that his power will be broken by Lucina. The only down fall of Minch’s power is he can’t run very fast…

    • Jonny :) says:

      One day Lucina decided to have a attack on Minch and Munck. She got all of her minions to make a power drainer to take all the power away from Minch. The minions worked for days a days on the power drainer while Lucina made a plan on how to get into Minch’s castle. Minch and munck did not know that Lucina was planning a big attack. So Minch and Munck went off and did there thing out in the forest. 10 days later Lucina and minions finally finished the power drainer (which they named Bessy) and the plan to get into the castle. That night Lucina went off on the attack. When she got there, none of the guards were there soo Lucina went in and set up the power drainer. In the morning she went back to the power drainer and it was gone. She looked around then finally saw Minch and Munck aiming it at her. she ran away , but the drainer got her and drasined her of her powers she ran away.

    Do you long for adventure,danger,and treasure. Then go to pier 7 charter a boat to UN-dead, island and start looking for your next clue but beware the UN-dead that walk the island. Don’t get bitten by one of them if you do you will turn into one of them. Look out for the skeletons and especially look out for BIG BONES and you will immediately know BIG BONES IF you see him.

    • Braden or BQ says:

      BIG BONES the only pirate with a jewelled eye the longest living undead of his own and the most feared of all legends. He alone is the god of evil, casting ships upon his shores and eating the delectable spirits of the bewildered sailors and stowaways. Yet most dye many get close and some afar they all search for BIG BONES body. People say that when BIG BONES ship, The Pirates Nightmare crashed throwing over board Gib Onebs, the captain of his revolting crew. When the many pirates went down and found nothing but bones and no jewel,therefore they rearranged his name to BIG BONES. And after this many said it was story but anyone who still enters the domain of UN-dead island never come back. Many say that mermaids took the body and stole the jewel. Others say that animals took him for food, but I know he lives.

    “I will do what you say” said Bilbo’s mother
    she ran to Bilbo’s room and locked him in. The next day for the last time Bilbo’s mother was called upon by the lord. the lord said”you have done what I have told you to do but I still do not see faith in you you must give me a sacrifice”
    ” I will do what you say my lord” said Bilbo’s mother
    she ran to the kitchen to get a cleaver. Bilbo saw her coming. he didn’t know what to do. but at that moment he saw a trap door to his basement. he know this was his way out of death

    • nadroj/jordan says:

      Rem’s story:Bilbo was standing in the basement while his mother went out to Wal-Mart and bought a Michel Myers mask because she was caught up in the moment of killing Bilbo. Bilbo was standing in the basement trying to figure out how to stop his mother from shanking him with a cleaver. He found a machete and a Jason mask. He put the mask on and took the machete so he can shank his mother. It will not be easy to kill his mother because Michel Myers has taken over her body. Michel Myers was not very happy that he was in a 60 year old womens body. So Michel went over to the barber shop and told him to cut his hair and his face of than he told him to sew the mask onto the womans face.

      Bilbo was doomed he didn’t know what to do but then he found a rock. Bilbo sharpened the rock with a carving knife he found randomly in his hand. When his mother got in his room Bilbo threw the rock like a boss and hit her right in the eyeball. She screamed in pained and Bilbo kicked her in the shin and ran away and went to go see the lord. But first he needed some weapons. Bilbo went to the house of knives and got a pretty boss like sword and then went to the lord. there was guards every where so Bilbo went Rambo on them . Took a rock and threw it at his head and made everything explode randomly. THE END

      A shark came up and tried to eat him but missed him and hit his raft even more. He had to come up with an idea so that he could save his live. The best idea for this guy was to try to go to land or an island were their could be trees or something. There could even be food that he could eat because he must be hungry. Then he would start to sail even know there is more dangerous creatures out there that could kill him he kept on going. He had some coconuts but he was so thirsty because he was on a sea were if he drunk some water he would get more thirsty.

    Fred was a chicken, he wasn’t any normal chicken, he was a chicken that was born to soon be killed and made into chicken pot pie. Fred had many friends at pot pie ranch, Fred new what would soon happen to him but had no idea what and when, Fred was grabbed by the owner of the ranch Mrs.Petunia “don’t worry little chicken you won’t feel a thing”. Fred was put into the chicken slicer and was strapped down but at the last second…..

    • cool c says:

      … He pecked at Mrs. Petunias hand and while she screamed in pain he pecked away at the straps and ran away from the chicken slicer then, ran out a hole in the fence he knew about and ran into the country. Fred knew he could never go back to the pot pie ranch unless he wanted to get sliced up again. So he went to the big city where he thought nobody would try to strap him into a chicken slicer. But that thinking soon came to a end when a man put him in a shop that sold chickens. The next day Mrs. Petunias came and said she was looking for a fat chicken and the man said he had just caught a fat chicken recently. So alas Fred got chopped up in THE END.

      Fred used his big bird powers and broke free, right when he stood up he grabbed the antidote that was on the silver plater beside the chicken slicer bed and stabbed it into his leg. he looked at his arms and they were slowly turning GREEN he was tuning into the chicken hulk. he started running he got faster and faster he looked back and mrs.petunia was getting closer to him on her pink moped. it was a wild chicken chase fred ran out of breath and mrs,petunia ran over fred and the next night she eat his chicken breasts the end!

        But… that actually wasn’t the end. Fred was in Mrs. Petunia’s body but he wasn’t about to give up just yet. Fred was strong. The strongest chicken alive, at least to himself he was. He was just in the middle of going through Mrs. Petunia’s digestive system. The only thing not chewed up was his chubby chicken leg. He obviously couldn’t see because no chicken has eyes on their legs, well except for messed up Margret! yukky. That girl has serious problems. Anyway Fred was crawling through Mrs. Petunia’s body hoping to find an opening to get out. Any opening would do at the time. Fred was crawling through when he ran into two small round balls that were blocking him way. He grabbed them and held them in front of himself. He could see he chubby chicken legs. Those round things were his eyes. ” wow I gotta lose a little weight,” Fred thought in his head. He plucked his eyes at the top of his chubby chicken legs. He was ready to roll! Fred was climbing through again when he saw something yellow. He trotted over to it. It was his beak. He carved a slightly deep whole in the middle of his leg and placed the beak in. The only reason Fred was still alive was because he was chicken Hulk and he was invincible. The light speared through a whole not far from where Fred was in Mrs. Petunia’s belly. He ran and ran on his chubby chicken leg as fast as he could. Mrs. Petunia started to feel sick. She had no idea what was going on in her stomach. She ran to the toilet. Fred jumped through the opening and come out of Mrs. Petunia’s…………………………

    • josh b :3) says:

      He broke free and hopped out. He didn’t know were to go, he was about to escape but Mrs.Petunia grabbed him and locked into a cage and put him into a truck. He was in the truck for about two or three hours when they opened the back of the truck they were at the airport. They were taking Fred through the airport and stopped at the flight gate. Fred looked at the sign above and it said Rio. It was a long torturous plane ride to Rio (which is in Brazil). When they landed he was put on another truck for another 4 painful hours. When they got to their destination there was a sign that said Uncle Fred’s Chickens compound. Fred was put on a table and his head was about to be cut off when he ran away and lived happily ever after.

      Sprung up and disarmed Josh of his weapon. Josh staggered while Keenan ran and took cover, while Josh was recovering from his stagger, Keenan was unloading Josh’s weapon and taking some pellets when suddenly, Josh fully recovered and was searching for his weapon until he realized that Keenan had taken it. So Josh was dashing toward Keenan while also taking cover, because Keenan was shooting at Josh until finally, Josh made it near Keenan and he retreated to a farther, better spot for cover. Josh looked around, found his weapon and picked it up. He looked in the ammo clip and found only around 20 pellets, when he started out with about 50. Josh started searching for pellets on the ground, but alas the only pellets he could find were about 10. Afterwards Josh moved up with the ammo he had left and went into an epic airsoft battle until eventually the champion emerged. It was Josh and he took the downed Keenan’s weapon and left. The End.

One month before they wedding , the potato father came to visit his son , and he brought news with him. The father told his son that he could not marry the girl of his dreams because she was a mortal and the son was a potato wizard! The boy had two choices; one is that he would have to give up his powers just for the girl he loves , or he would never see this girl again and keep his powers for all entirnity.

  22. Kyle the emo guy says:

    A long time ago in a jungle there was a young warrior named Timothy. Timothy was a young, small and weak warrior, but was accepted into the military because they thought he would make a valuable meat shield or suicide bomber, but they were wrong. Timothy and his squad were on a special operation, to sneak their way into a enemy compound and capture a man known as Kafforov. They were silent and stealthy all up until Timothy shouted “ENEMY SPOTTED!” and blew their entire cover and position and got them capture.

    • josh b :3) says:

      They were taken into a holding cell till further notice. They had to come up with an idea to escape, Timothy came up with an idea. Timothy would pretend he needed medical attention, every one liked that idea so they decided to do that. The team yelled Timothy is hurt, the guards opened the cell door and came in to see what happened. While the guards bent down to help Timothy, Gus and Bob took a the knifes from the guards belt and stabbed them in the back of their necks. Timothy got up and went with Gus and Bob. They got to the gates of the prison and sneaked into the armory. When they got in they went over to the weapon shelf they had to decide which weapons they wanted,Timothy chose a M4A1 and a Five Seven. Bob choose a Barret .50 cal and a Striker, Gus choose a MP5K and a Javelin. First Timothy went up to the guard guarding the gate and snapped his neck and then hid the body. Next Bob went up the look out tower and stabbed him and through him off behind the tower. Then Gus ran and shut the power off. Before they all escaped they had to capture Kafforov. Bob gave Timothy the signal and Timothy breached into to Kafforov’s compound and shot the two guards and ran around a corner and got close lined by Kafforov. During this time Gus is guarding the security room and using a small generator to make power for the computer to hack into the security system and open the gate. Bob is guarding the outside of the compound where kafforov is hiding. Timothy is on the ground fighting kafforov for his life, Kafforov stabbed Timothy in the stomach and started loading his gun. Bob doesn’t see any one and gets suspicious in an instant he was shot in the back by a sniper, the sniper goes down from his post and walks up the tower and sees Gus in the other room and he is about to shoot him when Bob gets up and shoots the sniper in the back of the head with his Striker. Gus opens the gate and runs in to Kafforov’s compound. Timothy is about to be shot in the head suddenly Gus tackles Kafforov and starts fighting him. Kafforov starts punching Gus in the face repeatedly in the face. Timothy yells “HEY KAFFOROV” and shoots Kafforov in the head. Gus comes and picks Timothy up and then goes to pick Bob up and runs for the gate where a helicopter is waiting for them and they escape. They escaped and Timothy had a full recovery but Bob died on the helicopter from blood loss. In the end Timothy and Gus were rewarded the medal of honor. THE END

    • Joseph says:

      They got taken to there base were they interrogated them but no one said anything so they left. Timothy had a plan to get out. He had a pencil Timothy stabbed the man beside him and yield to get the guard to help him out and well he was helping the man he knocked out the guard. They escaped the room and Timothy toke the guards gun [to be exact a l96a1]. The alarm went off so Timothy grabbed the guards keys and they all started to run. They got to the door that was locked and they could hear the guard get closer and closer. They didn’t know what to do but Timothy remembered that he had the guards keys, but their was too many. The guard were getting closer so he gave the keys to Billbow to try to get the door open well he defended them. He started to quickscoping the guards, he was a MLG pro but the guards where hard scoping noobs so he ran luckily the door, there was no one there. Timothy ran throw the door and shut it and shot the nob off. He terned around all of his team mates were dead and say Kafforov holding a minygun. Kafforov started to shoot Timothy got under cover and quickscoped Kafforov. THE END.

But he didn’t care at all he just did more backflips down the sewer and climbed the nearest ladder out of there. He ran home and sat down on the couch.

    My skis cut though the snow like a knife cut butter.The snow was smooth,fluffy, and it was powdery.Probably the best snow of the season.skiing in the tree-filled forest with snow up to your knees is pretty fun and exciting too.After a little bit I came in to a open space, then a icy patch won ski fell off crevasse and one ropes and no help.

      then hit an icy patch where my ski fell off. I fell in to a crevasse with no help and one rope…

      • Alex says:

        After trying multiple times to throw the rope up, and hook it on a branch right beside the spot where I fell, I stopped. It was not working. I tried a new idea. There was enough space for me to take off my ski, and I tried to jab it in the wall of ice above me. I thought if I could put the ski in tight enough, I could use it to pull myself up. I was feeling extremely unsatisfied with this mountain, at the moment. Stretching as high as I could, I stuck the ski in tight to either side of the crevasse. My freezing cold hands gripped the ski and I pushed against the walls of ice with my ski boots digging in. I carefully pulled myself up praying the ski wouldn’t budge. I threw up one knee into the snow and then I rolled to the side. I laid on my back, looked up at the sky and shouted, “Thank goodness.” I know it sounds crazy, but then I heard a helicopter and I jumped up waving my arms. The pilot saw me and looked for a flat area to land. I climbed in and thought, I am never skiing by myself again.
