Greetings! How are you all doing today?
Yesterday, I sat outside in the warm sun and read The One And Only Ivan (which is an excellent book) while my baby brother made sand castles. It was fun. 🙂
Anyways, I’ve finished THE SMALLONES!!! 😀
Ahem. Yes. Enjoy. XD
The Smallones: Season 2, Episode 6
I came to a stop in the yard, gasping for breath from my panicked dash. The terror and fear drained from my body, replaced by a sudden wave of worry. What was I thinking, leaving Ava alone with the snake?
The pain in my hand was forgotten as I turned, taking off at a run back to the spot where I’d so foolishly abandoned my sister.
As I reached the field, my worry grew as I saw that Ava was nowhere to be seen. I rushed forward, then stopped with a gasp as I saw a deep impression in the ground. It looked like a shoe print.
I sank to my knees as the tears dripped down my face. I began to tremble. Where was Ava?
Suddenly, I saw her. She was laying on her side in the tall grass up ahead. She was very, very still.
I rushed to Ava and sank down beside her. Her face was drawn, her eyes closed. Her breathing was ragged.
I almost passed out when I saw the deep gash on her ankle, streaming blood. The snake had bitten her.
I shook her pale body with my trembling hands. She didn’t move. I needed help.”Mary Lynn!” She could help. I shouted as loudly as I could, but the house was just too far away for anyone to hear. I was alone.
I grasped Ava’s limp hand. This was my fault. If I hadn’t left her, we could’ve escaped. She would have been okay.
I pulled on her arms, straining with all my might. Ava was heavy, but I was strong. Maybe, just maybe, I could get her back to the house.
As I pulled and tugged Ava through the grass, I didn’t see the small, red-haired girl lying very still, glowing with a faint blue light.
So of course I didn’t notice the glistening, evil snake rising up behind me, ready to strike.
La, la, la… isn’t it a lovely day, readers? XD
Thanks for reading, and have a great day! 😉
P.S: So? What did you think of that cliffhanger? I stayed up late at night, devising a plan to create the worst cliffhanger yet. How do you think I did? XD
