My mom wouldn’t let me go to Halloween when I was little because she didn’t want to deal with those nightmares. But this year I promised my mom that if I had a nightmare I would just push through it. Maybe I should introduce myself.Hi, my name is Carly Parks. I am 12 years old and this year is going to be my first Halloween. I know pathetic right.

Today was the first day of 6th grade, and it was the worst day I have ever had. My new teacher Mrs. Higlebottom (I call her Mrs.Higleworm) moved me to another class and yelled at me because Lenny Higlebottom (my worst enemy and Mrs. Higlebottom’s son) put gum in his hair and blamed it on me.

It was a warm summer night. The half moon rose in the sky, illuminating the darkness of the night. Twinkling stars shone like tiny crystals, and the misty Emerald Forest seemed to glow. The ancient forest held many secrets that no one had ever discovered. Mostly because no one ever dared to enter the mysterious woods.

I, Hexy Marva couldn’t wait a second more. Today I would finally start middle school, something I had been waiting for ever since my first grade field trip to the local technology center. I pressed my ear alarm shut. I had exactly forty-seven minutes and thirty-two seconds til I had to catch the bus.

Fox lived on the west side of Morwan Town, a dreary place where nobody was happy. Fox and her friend Bear both lived next to each other. They were humans, of course, and they were eleven years old. They were in the Elevens group, where they would be chosen if they were to be married at age Twelve, or be a nun for the rest of their life.
