Chapter 1- The Story of the Wounds
He was running. Running through a mist that shrouded him like a veil, disconnecting him from the world. His thoughts told him to stop and turn back, to follow logic. But somewhere deep inside him, his gut told him to keep going, to never turn back to what he has left behind.
His slender and cleanly cut body whisked through the tightly bunched trees, his golden hair bouncing off his sweaty neck as he ran. He didn’t want to cut it, because it seemed stupid to do so in this situation. The redness of his face grew as he exerted himself. His berry red lips pursed in wonder, curious as to where he was going. His almost invisible blonde eyebrows furrowed as he remembered why he was running. His chest heaved from the deep breathing, and his tall figure was just small enough to fit through the tree branches and bushes without hurting himself too much. His iridescent blue eyes caught every movement in the world around him. But what he did not see took him down.
“David!” she yelled as she ran smack into him.
“Becca, what in the world are you doing out here? You were supposed to stay at the camp, while I went out to look for Brenna.”
“David,” she said slowly, getting up as she dragged out the “a” in his name, “some of the scouts found her. She looks like all hell was let loose on her. She is barely alive. I was sent out here to find you, to bring you back.”
Tears were forming in her eyes. “What happened? Why are you crying?”
She mumbled something, but he couldn’t hear it.
“What did you say Becca?” he said urgently, worried something had happened.
“I was afraid!”
She screamed this at him, and then her whole body shook as the sobs spilled out of her. He shook his hands frantically, trying to see the whole point of this emotional break down, while his head whirled, thinking of ways to get back to base safely.
I can’t carry her. What if something comes after us. I would be too tired to keep going.
She eventually stopped, after David had a breakdown of his own. She asked while wiping the tears off her cheeks, “Why are you crying?”
He just realized the small drops of water sliding down his face. “I can’t figure out how this will all work out! I mean what are we supposed to do?”
He hurled this last quotation at the heavens, angered at the world and how this all played out.
“David, calm down and let’s get going.” They both got back on their feet, strengthened by the thought of company, to share their problems. They started to run, slashing the leaves away from their shelter on the forest floor. During the run, David looked over at his friend. She had shoulder length curly blonde hair that was held back by a homemade headband, decorated with paint and threading. Her face was covered in dirt, but otherwise blemish free. Her eyes were a changing green which was sometimes brown or even blue. Usually, her eyes were blue with company, like more than 6 people. With probably 2 or 3, they would be green, like now. When she is alone, they would be brown. Every once in a while, you would see all the colors mixed together, the blue on the inside, surrounding her deep black pupils then the brown and green would make a hazel that blended into the blue. His eyes shifted to her body. She was wearing her favorite sweatshirt, blue with a wave on the front and dolphins on the back. She wore boot cut jeans with frayed bottoms and tan sandals which he had no clue as to how she was able to run faster than him in those, let alone not need to stop for rocks somehow wedging themselves into them. She was generally lean, but she had broad shoulders from always swimming in the river and her upper legs were chubby, but that was still the baby fat coming off. Her calves were well muscled, strong and almost impossible to get cramps with. All in all, David thought she was a nicely built girl, especially for being 13 years old. But what bothered him most, was the fact he noticed all of this. She has been like a sister to him, but now he wasn’t sure how he felt about her. He thought, “Oh boy, here comes the hormones! Crap!” He focused on the running, determined not to trip in front of her. “Oh just keep quiet you stupid thoughts! I guess this I what I get for just turning 13.” After about 10 minutes of sprinting, they came to a clearing, panting, but home.
The clearing held a home for the refugees. Spread around a campfire that somehow burned bright, even in broad daylight, were 23 tents, one for each family. All of those who did not have any family here slept in the giant gathering tent, which was placed at the far end of the clearing, safe from harm. Some tents were used as extra places, such as hospitals, food courts, laundry rooms, etc. The tents were not too big, but enough. They were a horrible tan and green with a few brown spots on them. They were supposed to blend in with the surroundings, but that is pretty hard if everyone is walking around and talking, so if any enemies were to come over they could just waltz into the camp and do whatever because we had no guards. The only protection we had was the citizens and a few stronger men who were the fathers of a few families, most likely unable to run at an invader if they had to protect their family. The camp was a home away from home, however bad the resources and protection was. But the place was a bustle, and once the two came into view, all eyes were locked on them. It seemed to take eternity, but it was only a few seconds, until the others broke out of their trance and hurried forward, loaded with questions, the commotion a constant buzz in the electrified air.
“What has happened?”
“Where did you go?”
“Oh my goodness, you’re safe! What happened to you two?”
“How did you get so hurt?”
“My family, oh my family is safe!”
“Why did you leave?”
“Come, you must see Brenna.”
This last command rang out, clear and true, said by no other than the camp leader, Aralt, the head of all, the one who guided us to safety. His large stature stood out against the sunlight, which was setting fast, starting to set the sky on fire behind him. His dark brown hair was messy and filled with grime, yet his face was as clean as if he just washed it. His brown eyes studied us studiously, his mouth a tight line, a deep red against his tanned skin. He was well muscled, which made him a good leader, brave and well suited to defend us against any threat. He motioned us to follow, as silent as a ghost he moved through the dirt, while the two followed, in a confused and worried state.
“Oh God! What happened to her?” Becca screamed this like bloody murder, shocked by her friend’s state.
She lay still on the bed, blood seeping from her wounds, but slowly and successfully clogging. Her clothes were torn from her body, lying in strips and slashes across her body. Dirt and blood matted her otherwise blonde hair, while it caked on her skin. Her bone was easily visible on her arms, while the muscle was exposed on her claves. She was moaning, something about dragons and lions and eagles.
“Good lord what happened to her?” said David, still mesmerized by the sight of his friend’s body.
Aralt replied solemnly, “She was attacked, by a beast we know nothing of. By the slash sizes, we say it was a huge creature, claws and talons for feet. We are thinking that she is moaning the truth, that she was attacked by a dragon or other mythical creature.”
“That is nonsense! There is no such thing!”
“Look at the wounds David and you tell me what made them! Her explanation is the closest thing we have to an answer! You tell me what tore apart this poor girl, and you fix it! There is nothing out there that could have made this much of a disaster!” Aralt stood his ground, but his eyes were fierce, protecting Brenna’s sanity and standing by what he thought was the truth.
“Jeez Aralt, chill out dude!” David said, slowly backing up, holding his hands up in surrender, an exasperated look on his face.
“You dare tell me to chill! You tell me that my outrage is unneeded, but in my eyes it is needed, because everyone in this refuge has no idea of what is happening out there. All we have to know what is out there is this girl’s body. So, you tell me to chill, while she may die any second because she is bleeding from every pore in her body.”
“I know the problem, so no need to tell me. On the other hand, it could have just been a bear.”
“A bear would be too small. All these marks are giant, made by razor sharp talons that seem to be able to cut bone deep with extremely little effort.”
“Okay, bear out ruled. But there are tons of other things out there that could have harmed Brenna.”
“Is that all I get, a yes? Anyways, how come you let her leave refuge? Why didn’t you stop her?”
“She left in the middle of the night. She left unseen, unheard, and untouched. Yet, when she comes back, she is on a stretcher, the scouts rushing her to the hospital.”
Aralt looks around, sees the on lookers, thinking about what else he would scream about, and says, “Follow me. We must talk in private. There are a few things I must tell you about.”
He adds, “David, the word chill has not been used since the 21st century. You may not want to use it, since it has been outdated for the past 300 years. Here in the 24th century, we say no such things, so I will ask you politely, don’t use that word in my presence. Understood?”
David nodded, surprised by this mans knowledge of old terms. He silently laughed, wondering how in the world this man knew so much.
They walked briskly down the pathway leading out of the infirmary, and towards the giant tent, which housed Aralt because it was at the head of the refuge, able to see everything from the opening of the tent. The other people stared as they walked pass, surprised at the fact that they were walking with Aralt, the leader. This was only surprising because no one ever walked with Aralt. He was a lone person. He did not even have a wife or children. His parents were killed and his siblings kidnapped by who-knows-who. He was a one man army, able to take down close to anything that harmed the camp.
They entered the tent and walked past all the beds set up towards a secluded place in the back, a small area with only room enough for 5 people that was shaded from view by curtains that were great at blocking sound out.
They sat down in great wooden chairs that seemed to rise out the ground because they had the same color and earthy smell as the dirt at their feet. Then Aralt gave a great huff, and David and Becca thought it time to settle down for a long story.
“David, I will start with you. I will tell your story, then Becca’s for I am sure you will fall asleep once I am finished with you.”
David rolled his eyes in a way that said, thanks for the support.
“You know what I mean. Now to begin...”
He sat and thought for the next 20 minutes, thinking of where to start, while David and Becca just sat there, doing nothing, looking expectantly at Aralt. Finally he sighed and began….
“Back in the 21st century, people did not care much for their planet. They treated it as a resource, and instead of respecting the fact that Mother Earth gave so much for us, they took what they wanted from her, and took away the precious minerals from the soil, the elements in the air we breathe, and much more and they put back the waste, destroying her health.”
“After about 60 years of this, things went bad. The air went bad, filled with chemicals that caused global warming, melting the glaciers up north, and filling the seas with long forgotten creatures and old water that flooded the land, destroying coastlines, giving land creatures less land to roam free. The animals revolted, destroying humans, causing a massive drop in population. The humans were forced to go into seclusion. They lived like this for about 120 years, making underground cities and towns that were able to sustain human life. When they thought that they could come out again, they finally crept into the sunlight, which was brighter than it had ever been in millennia. The Earth had slowly moved closer to the star which was slowly destroying the planet in some places, but also repairing it in some too. They Earth had become a jungle, able to help unknown animals become welcomed in the world.”
“This was then known as the Lumen-Arbor age. This had a meaning of light tree age from Latin. It was named this because of the excess sunlight and how much vegetation there was on the planet. Over the next 90 years the Earth moved out of the dangerous point in the solar system, making it able to hold human life in a healthy way. This is what we live in now. But, our ancestors had forgotten how to live civilized lives; they knew nothing of school, shopping centers-”
David cut him off with a puzzled look. Aralt replied, “Shopping centers are where our ancestors would go in their cars, which are metal boxes that transport people using engines. And before you ask, engines are things which run machines using energy. But shopping centers had food, clothing, and toys for citizens to buy with money. I happen to have one which has been preserved for the last hundred years.”
He pulled a five dollar bill which was incased in a picture frame, from under his bed. David and Becca awed at it. David asked, “What is it made of? Why is it green?”
Becca gave him an accusing look, telling him with her eyes, not too many questions!
Aralt sighed, and said, “It is made of small fibers and apparently it has been dyed. I am not sure of this but I have studied it closely, because of course, I am as fascinated as you are. For some reason, people would carry hundreds of these in their pockets! It is amazing!”
“Anyway, let us get back to my story.”
The kids nodded, eyes faced towards him, intently watching.
“Okay, the people forgot how to live regularly and now they were trying to rebuild their countries. Already the population was splitting up, making their new languages, creating new borders on the land. The humans were going right back to what they were. During their time gone though, the Earth recuperated, and will probably last another quadrillion years! But back on topic, the people started to rebuild their homes and their countries, advancing in science faster than ever. They made cars that would astound the original people’s scientists. Then 25 years ago, David, your parents went out on a mission to destroy the progress human kind had made. At the rate they were growing, the humans would destroy the Earth once again within 75 years. By what you see around here, you can see they were successful. They made a war though. All of those from the East joined them, moved by their cause, but the people from the Old America were on their own side. They lost in the first year of war. This was known as World War 3, but they also won in a way. Have you ever noticed that the story I tell has included millions of people, yet today we have only hundreds? The Old Americans let a virus loose in the East that killed almost 2/3 of the population. Your parents and the doctors over there tried to help those who were sick, but it was a virus never seen before. Only a couple thousand were left. About 200 people committed suicide because they had lost their families to the illness. Today we have about 1,000 people spread out over the land. The rest, went over to the, if I may use the old term, The Dark Side.”
“Your parents gained a fortune from the East because everyone thanked them. Not everyone was lost to suicide and grief or illness. They were able to save many. Your parents had quite a lot saved, but it was saved as a new type of currency, one that was made of all coins. We still use this today. You know bubos, kerenth, and jachma. Your parents saved over 20 million jachma.”
David almost fell over in his chair. “What!”
“David, jachma are worth 100, kerneth worth 10, and bubos worth 1. You know that. Why are you surprised?” Aralt said this in a humored voice after laughing hysterically about David’s fall.
“Well, Mr. Aralt, if you look at it that is almost 2 billion bubos!”
“Well,” Aralt dragged out the well, wanting to make an impression, “Mr. David, the East was a very rich area of Earth, able to give quite huge gifts to your parents. They were very grateful to them.”
“Where is all of the money stored?”
“It is being saved by friends of your parents. You just have to make the journey to get the money back. And while your at it could you kill the monster?” Aralt, while not the type to be shy, mumbled this last question.
“Could you kill the monster?” Aralt once again did not speak clearly.
“Could you kill the monster?” This time, Aralt spoke very quickly and quietly.
“Aralt! What did you say?” David was forming a vague idea in his mind of what Aralt was saying, but he hoped he was wrong.
“Could you please kill the monster?” Aralt spoke clearly this time, and David was disappointed because he was right.
“What monster?” David took his turn at mumbling, barely speaking the question, but because Aralt was a good listener, he heard him clearly.
“You know. The one Brenna kept talking about.”
“The dragon or whatever that creature is.”
Becca finally burst out laughing. She had been smirking in the corner, listening to the talk between the two people, trying not to laugh, but not able to contain it any longer, broke. She curled up in a ball on the floor, shaking from laughter, while the two stared open mouthed at her.
“What?” she said.
“You just had something close to an asthma attack during our conversation.” David said, trying to get rid of the smirk that was playing at the corners of his mouth.
“Well, look at you two! You both are leaned towards each other as though you are going to strangle each other. You both keep talking low and are being very shy. And then you both start shouting. But you two are so calm, but angered in a way. You guys are clenching your fingers like you want to kill the other, and the sweat is pouring down your face. How can you not see how that is not funny?”
They just both noticed these things, as though she was checking off down a list, just saying the things that she observed which had made her laugh so hard.
“Plus, you two are talking so seriously. I mean, you guys can’t be serious. There really can’t be a dragon out there, can there?”
The two males stared at each other, trying to figure out what to say to her.
“Can there?” She said this terrified, her voice cracking on the last syllable, but the smile still on her face, her cheeks rosy from the giggling. Then her face dropped the smile suddenly, but then her lower lip quivered slightly, a signal for the two to leap into action. Then she poured tears like an endless waterfall, intent on soaking the ground until it wept itself from the weight of the emotions that the tears held.
The other two went berserk. The swung their hands in the air, confused and upset too, by the quest and her crying. They patted her back, told her to stop crying, and gave her tissues, everything they could do to stop the down pour of salt water coming from her eyes. Then, she stopped, all of a sudden, like nothing had happened. She looked up, and swerved her head around soundlessly, her fingers on her lips in a mark of quiet.
“Did you guys hear that?” she whispered, sounding very anxious and afraid, like something was going to jump out of the shadows at them.
“What?” David said, in a cautious yet curious voice.
“Are you serious? You guys did not just hear that scream? It was as loud as a land mine going off.”
“No, I’m sorry, but I didn’t hear it. Let’s go check it out though.” He smiled and walked out the tent, with purpose in his stride.
The other two stared after him. Aralt smirked and then followed.
“You guys!” Becca yelled, scared, laughing, and annoyed.
The guys poked their heads inside in the most hilarious way imaginable. Becca tried not to, but she ended up having a laughter attack again.
“Come on, seriously Becca? Your face is turning purple.” He said this seriously, a weak attempt to get her to stop laughing, but she ended up falling out of her chair and slowly shaking underneath the table. Her face flushed red and blue, a symbol that she was not able to breath, she was having an asthma attack, and/or she extremely embarrassed.
“I am so sorry!” She finally said, after her giggles subsided. She crawled back out from under the table and got up.
“You know, Becca, you are going to die someday from laughing too much, and I won’t be able to help you.”
“Not! You just now made me laugh harder than I ever had in my life. Only one person has ever said that to me, and she was laughing at the same time. You said it so seriously that I took it seriously and then I got embarrassed and then laughed harder.”
Aralt at last butted in, saying, “Shut up you two! Now you guys, Becca and David. Do you remember that scream we heard 3 minutes ago? If yes, let’s go already!”
After this registered in the two teens minds, they both started to walk, pushing each other in turn, with fun. But the hilarity instantly disappeared when they stepped outside.
The camp was a mess. Everyone apparently had just dropped what was in their hands and ran to the entrance to the infirmary. Soup pots and clothes lay strewn everywhere, toys and blankets mixed in with the occasional fruit or shoe. The crowd swelled at the tent flap that covered what was inside the place. The threesome walked over slowly to the throng, worry etched on their faces. The dirt and stones crunched under their feet as they took one step at a time. As they came closer, the mass turned their heads towards them, a questioning look on their faces. As they elbowed their way through the gathering, the lines on their faces deepened. What they saw was astonishing. Brenna sat straight up in her bed, calm and collected. But the fact that she was sitting up was amazing, but was that she was not crying or distressing in any way. Her wounds bled more than ever, yet she did not even show the slightest hint of pain at the cuts. But then she looked at them. Her face was brighter than ever before, happy and spirited. When she saw their looks she instantly frowned. She looked at them and said “What?”
“Brenna, have you seen yourself?” David asked.
“Yes I have in fact. So don’t get your panties in a twist. I do know that my body is bleeding a dangerous amount, but I don’t really feel it.” Brenna replied.
“B-b-but….” Becca stuttered, “How do you not feel it?”
“I can’t because the doctors gave me some numbing medicine. I can’t feel a thing right now. You could have a WMA wrestler hit me with a heavy duty shovel and I would feel on top of the world.”
“Wow-” David said.
“Brenna, I need to ask you an important question.” Aralt interrupted with the no emotion anywhere on his face.
Brenna gave a puzzled look on her face.
“Do you remember how you were hurt?”
Her goofy expression wiped from her face like a wet rag wiping away the mud on a surface, successfully and quickly. Her sparkling eyes were drowned in a terror filled blankness that slid over her eyes. Then her slightly tilted head slowly straightened out then drooped down, as though all the energy from her was instantly drained from her, leaving her weak and tired. Her pursed lips turned from cute to scary, a frown replacing the sweet look. Her previously crinkled nose flattened out and her nostrils flared in fright. All in all, she looked like a horse that had just seen a snake or something much, much worse. She looked pathetic.
“Brenna? Are you okay?” David asked, sitting down on the girl’s cot and putting his arm over Brenna’s shoulders, rubbing her right upper arm. He let the panicked teenager lean into him, letting her push her feeble body into his, against the bed post.
As an answer the exhausted girl fell asleep. “I guess the medicine finally took it’s affect on her.” David answered with a half smile.
“But, she fell asleep before she said anything. That is what worries me. Either that whatever hurt her injured her so badly that she can’t stay up for a few minutes or that whatever she met out there was so ghastly that she dropped off.” Aralt commented.
“But what could be that bad?” David asked.
“Why, I am not sure David.” said Aralt sarcastically, “She fell asleep!”
“Sorry!” David countered, “I didn’t mean to get you mad. But I figured you would know because 20 minutes ago we were talking about dragons!”
“It is my turn to apologize. I am sorry for yelling at you but I am really stressed about this and now Brenna is too tired to even talk for a few minutes.” Aralt said, huffing after finishing.
“Sit down Aralt, or even better, take a nap.” David said calmly, worried about his leader.
“Thank you David, but I think Becca beat me to it.”
“What do you mean?” David asked, eyebrows furrowing.
Aralt pointed to the floor behind David where Becca lay after fainting.
Aralt laughed and sat down in the chair behind him.
“Becca, wake up.” David said, kneeling down and shaking her shoulder gently.
The fallen girl moaned and blinked slowly. “What happened?”
“You fainted. What I want to know is why.”
She shook her head and stood up with help from her friend. “All I remember is Brenna woke up, and I saw her blood and then black.”
David laughed and pointed at Brenna. “She fell asleep.” Then David recounted on what had happened after his friend had fainted. When he finished Becca said, “Thanks. But now you know I hate really bad wounds. I can get past a pretty bad cut with blood oozing and everything, but something like Brenna and I blacked out.”
“It’s not a problem. But now we are the only ones awake now.”
“What do you mean?”
“Aralt fell asleep in the chair a couple minutes ago and Brenna knocked out, so now it’s just us.”
“Ok. But now what? We have been busy since the moment we walked into camp.”
“I know. I guess we should go back to the house or whatever you want to call it.”
“The tent that is like a dungeon because you can’t get out once you’re in and all you get to do is sit on your bed and talk to your pillow.” She giggled at the thought of his loneliness.
“Oh just be quiet Becca!” He yelled, smirking too.
“No!” She argued.
“Yes!” David said as he laughed.
“No, no, no! I, Becca Ransom will not be quiet!” She said as she stood up and put her fist on her heart.
“Oh my God! Just sit down and relax! You are so weird! Why in the world did I get paired with you and Brenna as best friends?”

nothing new's happened with me I'm almost done with the Heir series now! its awesome! i came soo close to finishing Wizard Heir in one night cuz i told one of my BGF's (who actually owns the book) I'd finish it in one day and rlly wanted to but I got too tired and had to put it down and catch some sleep! Now I'm on Dragon Heir and its a weird intro LOL! Every time i go to my locker between classes I update him on what's happened so far and he warns me what to expect (like if its a boring chapter or sad)! Well enough about me What's new in ur life?!

~Bookworm<3 on 2/1/2011 5:35:03 PM
yyaa you're totally right, if I was Katniss i don't know who'd I'd go with. But as a reader I had a sweet spot for Gale...until the end and he basically(like everyone else but Peeta and Haymitch) abandoned her for District 2! Ya her and Peeta went thru the games, but her and Gale went thru the loss of their fathers and a fight to survive. I HATED how she said that Gale was a fire full of hatred and anger and that Peeta was a dandelion--cuz im not shure that's necersarily ture-- yah Gale is more...idk how to put it..hmm...outgoing and opinionated but he also has a sweet side! And Peeta seems TOO good for Katniss, he'd do anything for her and she didn't treat him all that well
and yup i love pasta(well most italian) and orlando bloom haha thts a joke between me and a friend but usually im not into actors lol its too farfetched! and SWEET! i seriously NEED to read all of the LOTR books (and the Hobbit)!!!!!! Did u see they're making the Hobbit a movie too?? aahh i hope they don't ruin it! and i hope they don't ruin Hunger Games too! and nope ive jst been to Disney World...but im a HUGE rollercoaster fanatic! Ive been to a few amuesment parks i luv'em!! do you do competitive softball?? or just REC leagues? tlk to ya soon!
~Bookworm<3 on 1/31/2011 6:51:35 PM
hey!! we seem alike! (softball, reading, animal lovers!) and omgee u read Hunger Games!! didnt ya LOVE them?! I know i did 'cept Katniss didn't go with Gale which totally made me mad! I mean yaa i know her and Peeta were these "star-crossed lovers" and all but Gale seemed sooo much better for her! What do you think??

lover_of_life on 1/15/2011 12:50:57 PM
HEY GIRLY!!! I am SO sorry it took me this long to comment back to you! Usually, as you probably know, i am very good about commenting back right away but I had final exams this week to study for, and then i had to hang out with friends and go shopping, LOL. I've just been crazy busy!
LOL, yeah i do I like having tons of comments! also, i had to go back the school on the 3rd. I got a 4.0 gpa this semester though so that made me happy
lover_of_life on 1/15/2011 12:36:02 PM
YEP, me too <3
lover_of_life on 1/3/2011 4:31:43 PM
YES omgsh, wasn't it amazing? ;) i love it so much
lover_of_life on 12/30/2010 2:29:09 PM
Hey girlies! I just took some quizzes and decided to let you in on my answers....get to know me better!
Which Harry Potter House to you belong in?
"You might belong in Hufflepuff, Where they are just and loyal, Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, And unafraid of toil." You’re loyal, patient and not afraid to get your hands dirty. You’re not judgmental, and are all about friendship and fair play. Who wouldn’t want a bud like you?
Your house animal: The Badger
Are you Super Shy or a Social Butterfly?
Some people might mistake you for shy but, truth is, you’re just a bit reserved—a girl of few words. You have a crew of close friends, and that’s cool. But it’s nice to branch out, and work on your conversation skills. Join a debate club or theater so you can get comfortable expressing yourself. Developing savvy in voicing yourself is a super way to keep any convo going. Master the art of articulation!
Cute Boys Ahead. Now What?
Damsel in Distress
Your crush is your knight in shining hightops: When you need history help, he’s the one you sidle up to in study hall. Your strategy is to make him feel good by complimenting his knowledge and talents. It can work...or it can backfire.
Your Best Icebreaker "I know you’re really good at this, but I can’t figure it out!"
Why It Works It’s a win-win when a boy knows a girl admires his mad skills and truly appreciates his help.
When To Watch It Don’t do things you have no interest in just because he’s terrific at them. He’ll see through this and think you’re playing him.
The Bottom Line A boy will really feel cool showing off his smarts and skills, as long as you don’t slather on the compliments too thick. Also, don’t get so wrapped up on his chiseled jaw that you space out on that math problem he’s helping you with—that’s just wasting his time.
Will you snag a BF this year?
Maybe baby. Your crush might know that you’re into him, but also might think you prefer him as a friend. When it comes to flirting, you tend to give it a rest before he gets the idea that you’re diggin’ him. If you want to land that hottie, you might want to take those few extra steps to really show him just how cute you think he is.
Who is your Harry Potter Hottie?
You’re bewitched by his bravery, and are totally taken with his talent (Hello? Best Seeker in Gryffindor history!). This wizard has it all! Only problem? He’s got very little time, what with defending the Wizarding world from You-Know-Who and all. Harry needs a friend, not another adoring fan. Treat him like the normal wizard that he is and he’ll see you’re perfect together.
What Kind of Smart are You?
Do you see pictures when you close your eyes? People who are picture smart are talented artists and have good eyes for fashion. They also are great at jigsaw puzzles, mazes and reading maps. You learn best by drawing pictures or using visual organizers. You'd make a great architect, graphic artist, interior decorator, photographer, artist, fashion editor, pastry chef, or sculptor. Artists like Georgia O’Keeffe are picture smart.
Is He Crushworthy?
He's Got Potential...
While your crush has potential, he's probably not quite ready for a GF just yet. Spend time hanging with him in group situations, which will give you the chance to check out whether he's worth your energy. Hey, he might come around and grow up some! But if he doesn't you can keep him around as a hilarious BGF.
I took like 20 quizzes, but the ones I didn't agree on I didn't post.....
AnimalHugger1000 on 12/29/2010 12:44:39 AM
LOL, it doesn't offend me! I don't live in the country, but i do love country music. i'm definitely a country girl! <3
Anyways, that's so cool! We love all the same things!!!
And YESS HARRY POTTER!!!
and yes live, love, laugh is amazing! <3

Oh, not many plays that are actually like well known at all and kinda babyish which is hard to act because you have to be a ll smailey all the time even if your charactor isn`t. and yes I do take piano and I can play it.I have been taking it for 4 or 5 years now.
kpianoplayer on 12/3/2010 8:12:51 PM

My Quiz Answer! (for the BF in 2011 one...)
Mr. Mixed Signals
Frustration galore – he likes being around you, but his actions could signal two things: 1) he thinks of you as one of the guys or 2) he isn’t afraid to let his guard down around you. Both of which are great, because they indicate he’s comfortable in your presence. Take some time to think about your friendship and see if taking it to the next level would be the right next step.
"growl".....This quiz is surprisingly right!
I am about to pull my hair out with frustration because he never does anything!....oh well.....
AnimalHugger1000 on 11/13/2010 11:41:49 PM

kpianoplayer on 11/12/2010 4:43:04 PM
OMG NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! actually nun of my friends at school like hom sp we make fun of him in our free time!! and one of peeps in our little group is a guy. this girl in our class who loves the guy I just meantioned and JB. she is pretty annoying because she like through herself to our little group but no one lets her in. no one likes her in our class because we have none of the "popular" kids so she just hangs with them.but still she is strange for liking him.his name is ryan BTW because I am probably going to mention him again in the near future. . .

I think they either shot the scenes with long hair first before she cut her hair. or she had hair extentions. do you like justin bieber? salena and justin are now dating.
kpianoplayer on 11/6/2010 10:59:45 AM
OMG!! I love bridget mendler,taylor swift,debby ryan,and selena gomez! I think debby ryan is really pretty. well all of them are. have you seen the disney channel movie called "sixteen wishes"? It is really good. so is wizards of wavelry place the series and the movie. I wish I could see valentines day because it has taylor swift in it and all the critics hated her so she had to be good! but I can`t watch it becuz my parents won`t let me. but in the commercials for it, some parts don`t look appreopriate. well, not yet. Anser me soon!!
kpianoplayer on 11/4/2010 8:56:38 AM
ohhhh nevermind!! I get your problemo!! so the mod`s advice didn`t do the trick eh? when your friends tease so about liking him, if they are your real friends, this has happend to me. they are just trying to lighten the subject!! they don`t mean anything by it. about the boy, start commenting on his shirt of if your flirting style doesn`t work then just try to talk about random subjects to him!! that is what the moderator meant I think. just try to do whatever he does to you. and keep staring at him. it may seem like he isn`t looking, but if a boy likes a girl, he is always looking!! hope this helps because I want to help!! love helping yah,
kpianoplayer on 10/30/2010 11:40:23 AM
I don`t get what you need help with, can you please just tell me?
kpianoplayer on 10/30/2010 11:35:31 AM

IM SOOOOO SORRY i hope everything worked out ok, and i think its great u have a guy as amazing as you made him sound!
laughlots on 10/18/2010 8:26:58 PM
hey girlie! did my advice work?
laughlots on 10/16/2010 7:43:35 PM
Hey chica! i got your post:
could you help me out? I need some advice on guys. My crush is always helping me out but whenever I ask him a personal question (whens ur bday? whts ur fave color) he changes the subject. I am trying to get to know him so I can try to get his attention, but he wont do anything. I really want him to ask me out, but I only see him 3 times a day and he only talks to me on subjects at hand.
Heres the advice: well he might like you! maybe he is just shy and is a little embarressed/shy about himself! like maybe he doesnt want you to know about himself. try something else like making him laugh, or telling about yourself! try to change the subject if he doesnt! hope this helped- if it didnt just post again on my profile!
laughlots on 10/2/2010 8:13:26 PM
Hey ))) I saw ur question about ur hair
1. Straighten ur hair ! That way it looks a little bit longer not super curly and ont have a huge bob effect !
2. Side part ! A side part would be rely cute with a bob and eliminates the cubbyiness look
3. Loofa ! Do some poofs in ur hair ! Take a clip or Bobby pin and either do a center or side poof so gather hair wither by a side part or just center and make it have a little volcum then clip it .
Hope I helps ! I looovgiving advice aoo if u ever have any questions do NOT b afraid to ask me .

Hey girlie! Sooo for your hair, here a few cute do's to do easily!
1) A cute print headband! Just head on over to wallgreens and pick out a thick head band with a cute design, that way you can quickly pull your hair back! (It can totally change your look!)
2) Braids! A few cute braids, maybe two in the front or a couple in the back, or one big one! It won't take long once you get the hang of it.
3) Barrettes and Bobby-Pins! Check out bobbies and clips with pearls and designs to stylishly pull your hair back!
4) A half pony!
