Mischief Days 2012

 

Rules:

1. Read the entire story before you start posting. Don't just read the last post and start adding on to it or you will throw the story completely out of whack and I will have to come out and whack you a little bit. (KIDDING)

2. You must wait for someone else to post after you before you can post again. If you post two in a row, they will be counted as one post so you will be wasting your time anyway.

3. Keep adding to the story. The more additions you add to the story, the more chances you will have to win the grand prize. You get one chance in the drawing per legal post (remember - no double-posting).

4. The story and post counting begins now and continues until Midnight MST Saturday, April 14th. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 16th.

 

What are you trying to win????

 

AWESOME PRIZE: The winner will get a $20.00 Gift Certificate for the Scrap Girls Boutique!

 

Get your fingers and keyboards ready. Warm up your imaginations. Here is the beginning of the story:

 

 

“She deserves this,” Selene whispered, convincing herself. She crouched lower on the bough.

The sprite twitched a few of her fingers. Long strings of spider silk were wound around them and woven through the branches. They shifted at her movements. She smirked as she moved out of sight, readying herself to wait until her unsuspecting victim passed by. Dew that had settled on the strands overnight gleamed. She was not letting this plan slip out of control. Not like the others.

Minutes crept by in a silence punctuated by birdcalls and humming insects. Selene moved her cramping legs carefully.

“And what are you trying this time?”

The soft words crashed against her straining ears. Selene whirled around, nearly losing her hold on the strands, and faced the speaker.

Her Mother was staring down at her. "You are supposed to be at school, remember our agreement?". Selene nodded. How could she get out of this one? The Mistress at her school had given her one last chance and she was already breaking the agreement by being here... Her mother grabbed her by the ear....

But Serena whirled and spun away and kept running... And, running... She escaped! But where would she go? Her mother was already on to her and would be searching and so would the school.. Serena wracked her brain and kept a keen eye looking and suddenly she saw ----

Serena ducked into an open door... She looked around - but no! It was too DARK to look around. Where WAS she? What had she done? Serena crept forward and bumped into someone.

"Nice to see you, my dear", the voice said. Serena shook. She strained to see and suddenly remembered what was in her pocket. She reached for ---

....and so she decided she must make herself invisible so that no one could see what she was up too. She would need some help to make herself invisible and suddenly she saw it.....that magical thing that with one wave of the wand would make her invisible to all..................

The magic stone! It would help her in her mission and get her to where she wanted to be. Serena clutched the stone in her hand, rubbed it gently and pictured in her mind where she wanted to be. Her body shuddered, she felt cold, and found herself...

this was where she started out! At the tree with the spider silk wound around. Waiting for her victim. Serena wasn't an evil girl, she really just wanted to make things "right" and had a strong sense of justice. But, the vicitim had escaped and the trail was cold. What should she do? Suddenly Serena had an idea. She turned and started to walk in the direction of ----

Serena drew back even though she was invisible. She watched the postman walk up the path and upon the unlocked garden gate. Hmmmmm - so the key was NOT for the gate. What could it be for? Suddenly, Serena saw a small door half-hidden behind more bushes. It was in the basement of the girl's house so Serena was unsure of how to proceed or it the key would even open the door. Making her decision, she quietly crept forward, inserted the key and turned it - the door opened!

Serena looked inside and took a tentative step in. There she saw ------

She turned back towards the door, to see if she had been followed. She could just make out a figure in the dark. Who could it be?

Selene spun to face the stairwell. Her heart was thrumming wildly, threatening to beat its way out of her chest. She scanned the darkness, desperate to find a place to hide. The room was bare save for the trunks, so she scurried to the furthest one from the stairs and ducked down behind it.

The footsteps continued, then a light shone around the room. Did someone know she was there??? Serena shivered and...

thought to herself how foolish it was to hide when she was still invisible. Of course, the stone's power was NOT effective against everyone. There were certain sprites that could see things in spite of the magic, but why would one of the elders be following her?

 

Her panic grew as she watched the dark figure, backlit into a looming shadow, start shuffling around each chest.
