The J J 's by Bruce Parker

This book is dedicated to the youth of America who were left on their own through the loss of family members as a direct result of the Civil War. The novel is set in the 1800s, before the Civil War began and tells of the destruction afterwards. It is an adventurous survival story of three of those youth, who had been tagged by friends and neighbors as the JJ's. Josh, Jake and their sister Jody, along with their faithful dog Jack are faced with abrupt tragedies, Carpetbaggers, and Renegade Indians as they travel alone through the wilderness and the harsh environment from West Virginia to Wyoming after the Civil War.

I keaped running. Trees flew all around me blocking my way. Losing go time I ran to the trees as fast as I could. Now you might think I'm going to do some crazy Indiana Jones jump but this was a little less dramatic. Running to the tree I invisoned a ramp two feet away so I could leap off. I ran thinking my puersuer left. I pressed my luck a bit to far. I jumped and in mid flight I got hit by a tree. I flew 50 feet before I stopped. "I'm going to die " I thought some how I managed to get up then I saw it Camp Half Blood." So close come on come on" I thought. Got hit again thankfully it worked to my advantige propelling me towards the camp. I got in and ran towards the giant house and then just collapsed passed out. I should introduce myself sorry I couldn't I was getting chased my name is Jack Anthony. I live well l lived at Brooklend house training for hosting of the gods me l was hosting Horus then l got kicked out for reasons unknown Carter could have found out my past. It doesn't matter l'm here. I woke up with a milkshake next to me l jumped away l had a little incident with a milkshake trying to turn into a pig. "Drink this you're going to feel better" somebody said. It must have been that invisable girl( yep I've been here to) sorry I had to end there I'm just tired and l have to go to bed so bye

I really hope you like this! PART 1: My lungs are burning. My whole body aches. My feet have gone numb from running this long. I want to stop. I want to lay down and eat and drink as much as I want for once, and then take a looooong nap. Then I might be ready to go again. But I cant stop. Because if I stop, I die. And I cant die,, not now, after..... I trip over a rock and collapse to the ground. My best friend Matthew, who was running behind me, merely scoops me up and runs with me in his arms. Im thankful for the rest. But not even Matthew can run like this forever. "Stop," I manage to gasp out, "We need to rest." Matthew just nods and keeps running until he finds a well hidden cave, then slows to a walk and puts me down. I feel a little shaky on my legs again, but I manage to get into the cave and sit down without toppling over. Once Im inside the cave, I grab my water bottle from my backpack and take a few swigs, then hand it to Matthew who gulps a quarter of it down and then splashes some onto his face. Once we're done drinking, Matthew reaches into his pack and brings out a poptart package. He tears open the cellophane, hands a poptart to me, and then starts eating the other one. I know that I should eat, but now that the foods in front of me I cant force my jaw open. Instead I force air into my still aching lungs and ask myself questions that I will never even be able to begin to answer, but still cant stop from trying to figure out. Like, Where did this thing that is chasing us come from? How could today have started out so normally? Where are we going? Will we make it there alive? And most importantly, Where is Jess? END OF PART ONE Hope you enjoyed!

If you want to see the ultimate final part, go to house of hades and give me characters and monsters. Thanks. I hope i win the story contest. Wish me luck! PART 1 The last thing i expected was for my girlfriend to turn into a screeching monster. I mean, i didnt know why she has been staring at me because i have bad-free so far today. Anyway, while i was running she screeched something that almost sounded human. Then i blacked out. I woke up in my bed and i was just thinking,'woah that was a weird realistic dream.' Then i went downstairs to get my breakfast from my mother but she wasnt cooking. I thought," huh she must still be asleep." and i started to walk toward my moms room when i started thinking about what my ex-girlfriend said. It sounded kind of like," we will get your mother Victor Mars." even though it really sounded like," eeeeeellllllllgghhjdvdiwbhdyyyeyeeieooeuhe vijfbor mdhbjas." Then i opened my moms bedroom door and she wasnt there but on the wall i saw in crayon," COME TO THE UNDERWORLD VICTOR MARS." If you want to see part 2 up until the ultimate part, add more characters and monsters. Thanks and bye!
