I found another gem! I think this one is even more crazy (though a little less graphic than a 15-year-old girl being burned at the stake by trolls while her friend watches). I decided to insert some comments here and there.
The Island of Adventure
As Willow stepped off the ship and onto the beach she had a feeling that someone was watching her.
“Isn’t it great honey!” exclaimed Willow’s dad.
“Yeah great.” Willow sighed.
“If you want you can go explore while I set up. But be back in time for dinner.” said her dad. [What time is dinner?]
“O.K.” said Willow.
So Willow started off into the strange looking jungle. After she had gone into the jungle a little ways she heard a rustling sound in the grass behind her. She spun around and found a boy that looked her age.
“Hi. I’m Tom and I’m 13. Who are you and how old are you?” [Can you tell that AOL chatrooms were part of my life at this time?]
“I’m Willow Rosenburg and I’m 13 too. How did you get here?” asked Willow.
“Well,” said Tom, “When I was 3 my parents were flying over the jungle and I wanted to look out the window so I stuck my head out it and started to look down at the animals and I fell out the window. [Wait…what!? Probably I hadn’t been on a plane at this point in my life, but did I really think that people cruised over the jungles with open windows and let their babies hang out them? I mean, sure, these days celebs let babies drive, but…well, maybe I was ahead of the times!]
Thank goodness I landed in some thick grass. [Yes, thank goodness!]
About an hour later a female Gorilla came and took me to her den. [I apparently loved to estimate how long it took for things to happen.]
She raised me in the jungle.” [I also probably watched Tarzan a lot at this point too.]
“What happened to your parents?” questioned Willow.
“Well I was on the other side of a bridge with the Gorillas playing in a stream when my real parents arrived on the other side. I saw them and they started to cross the bridge and I yelled to them that I’d meet them half way so I did.
After we finished saying hello and hugging, the bridge snapped and I was able to grab a board and climb up to the top, but my parents fell down off the bridge and into the sharp rocks.” said Tom sadly. [….I have no words for this situation. I was a really morbid kid!]
“Oh.” said Willow, “I’m sorry.”
“That’s o.k.” said Tom.
“Hey where are you from?” [Good old Tom, he bounces right back from sad situations.]
“I’m from New York.” sighed Willow. [People from New York sigh a lot.]
“Want to go on an adventure?” asked Tom.
“Sure,” said Willow, “but where do we go?”
“Down by the river.” said Tom.
So Willow and Tom headed down to the river.
When they go there they thought they would see a river but all they saw was a put where the river should’ve been.
“What happened to the river?” asked Willow.
“I don’t know.” said Tom with a puzzled expression.
“What’s that?” asked Willow as she pointed up river a bit.
“It looks like a giant elephant robot.” said Tom.
“Do you think that’s what drank up the river?” asked Willow.
“Yeah.” said Tom, “And I know who it belongs to.”
“Who?” questioned Willow.
“It belongs to a mad scientist named Dr. Klots. He wants to destroy this island.” answered Tom. [Anyone remember the show Doug? I assume that’s where I got the inspiration for the villain’s name.]
“Well we should go investigate.” said Willow. [Definitely.]
“O.K.” said Tom, “Follow me.”
So Willow and Tom walked through the jungle until the got to the big elephant.
“It doesn’t look like he’s here.” said Tom, while staring at the huge elephant.
“Hello Tom.” said Dr. Klots from the ear of the elephant. [I guess Tom was wrong.]
“Give back the river.” shouted Tom angrily. [I was a master of adverbs!]
Dr. Klots jumped out of the ear and landed right next to Tom.
“I’m afraid I can’t.” said Dr. Klots in an evil tone, “Not till I’m done with it. Who might this be?” [Polite villains are sexier.]
“Get your dirty hands off me!” said Willow pushing Dr. Klots’s hands off her shoulders.
“I like her.” said Dr. Klots. [Uhm, pervert!]
Then all of a sudden he grabbed her and jumped onto a foot of the elephant.
Before Tom could get Willow, Dr. Klots and Willow went through a metal door in the leg and then the big elephant rose up on wheels and sped away. [LOL]
Tom tried to run after the elephant but it was too fast. [Duh!]
Then Tom decided to go to the clearing where Willow was staying.
When he got there he knocked on the door and Willow’s Dad answered. [Did he build a house while the two were gone?!]
“May I help you?” asked Willow’s Dad.
“Are you the father of a girl named Willow?” asked Tom.
“Yes I am.” said Willow’s Dad, “Is something wrong?”
Meanwhile at Dr. Klots’s castle… [Suspense!]
Willow was chained to a wall. [Uhm…….]
“Let me go! Freak!” screamed Willow.
“Naughty, naughty,” said Dr. Klots, “You shouldn’t talk to you new master like that.” [Uuuuuhhhhmmmmmm….]
“New master?” asked Willow, “I’m not going to be your slave. That’s the last thing I would ever do.”
“I’m afraid you have no choice,” said Dr. Klots in a sinister tone, “If you refuse to be my slave I’ll be forced to dispose of your friend and father. Then I’ll dispose of you. If you try to escape I’ll do the same thing. However, if you remain loyal, I’ll let you friend and father live and I’ll treat you well. You’ll just help me sometimes, and others you’ll be relaxing in your chambers with your own slaves. Sound good?” [Sounds great! X_X]
“Fine.” mumbled Willow
“What? I couldn’t hear you.” asked Dr. Klots.
“FINE!” shouted Willow angrily.
And that’s it! My story ends and nothing else is written in my notebook. Now I’ll never know what happens! *tear*
Hahaha man…If I could go back and asked my childhood self what the hell I was thinking…
