Mood | mortified

All was quiet in the castle. An apprentice runs to the bell tower. 10 minutes to go. He runs up the stairs and reaches the top with a minute to spear. He pushes the door and sighs with relief. He won’t be late after all. The door squeaks open and the apprentice sees he is not alone. The intruder turns around with an evil grin on his face. He stinks of Darke Magyk.

The bells in the bell tower ring and slowly the castle wakes up. In the shadows a bride curses under her breath and creeps back to her flat. She reaches the door and decides against it. Inside Gringe waits for her return. He hears her approach the door and the creep away again. He lets out a roar and bounds to the door. Lucy squeals and runs in terror to the safest place she knows. The Heaps.

Septimus Heap quickly eats his breakfast. He’s late for his apprentice work with Marcia. Slowly the rest of the Heaps wake up and one-by-one make their way round the breakfast table where a bowl awaits them. Septimus finishes his breakfast and quickly runs out the door. He runs into Lucy and the result sends them flying.
“Whoa. Oh it’s you Lucy. What’s wrong?”
At the sound of Lucy’s name Simon runs for the door. Lucy looks up at Simon with a tearstained face and collapses into Simon’s arms. Simon and Septimus look at each other and Silas staggers to the door stopping an over-excited Maxie from jumping on Lucy.
“Lucy. What’s wrong dear?”
Lucy lets out a faint moan. Septimus remembers he’s late and runs to the Wizard tower, nearly tripping over Maxie in the process.

In the bell tower young wizards find the apprentice unconscious and tied up to the bell. They try to awaken him but after 5 minutes of trying they realise what’s wrong. He’s dead. The life had been sucked out of him leaving him dry.

Below the necromancer chuckles darkly. He is refreshed. He hears the breath of a boy running. He looks and sees Septimus sprinting for the door. The necromancer waits patiently. Soon, very soon he will get his revnege. But until then he will have to wait…

The wonders of 4th year...chapter 15 Aug 14th, 2007 11:33:30 am - Subscribe
Mood | dramatic

Chapter 15...it's gone by so fast wink.gif. Anyway I found my homework but I want to do one more chapter before I ruin the last bit of my summer by doing homework...

Chapter 14 review:

"How're you?"

He picks up the board and writes "I'm kl". I smile and my mum phones saying I have to go home. Frank gets his parent's to drive me and I'm back within half an hour of leaving. I smile and vow to make it up to Alyssa, Paige, Gerard and Frank.


Chapter 15:

I'm at his house. We exchange presents. His sister starts to laugh and points to the ceiling. We look up. Mistletoe is hanging from the ceiling. I feel myself staring to blush and I look at Steven. He's turned a bright red. He looks at me and I look away. I takes my hand and pulls me closer. I look at him and smile...

BZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
BZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!

I switch off my alarm and stay in bed. I stare at the ceiling. Christmas was awesome yesterday. I got loads of presents and had a great time. I look at my clock and start to panic. I'm suppost to meet Steven at Burger King in 2 hours. I quicky find my clothes in the mountainous clothes pile and shove them on. An hour and a half to go. I wake up my mum and she takes her time getting ready. Eventually she drives me to the train station and gives me some money. I get my ticket and wait for the train. It seems forever but I know that it hasn't taken long to come. I check that Steven's Christmas present is still in my pocket and board the train. I slump into one of the seats and stare out the window. I feel someone sitting on the seat next to me and I turn around. Greg's sitting beside me looking depressed again.

"Hi. What're you doing here?"
"I'm going to Steven's house to see how he's doing now he's out of the coma. You?"
"Same."
"She still not speaking to you?"
"No..." He sighs and I decide to stop talking about that. It's making him even more depressed. I use my "talent" and soon he's laughing. I wouldn't exactly call it a talent. I can usually get people to laugh but it usually requires taking the piss out of myself. I don't do it often but Greg needed cheering up.

Soon we're laughing and it's all too soon before we're at Central Station. We get off the train and head for Burger King. As usual Steven is early and he looks anxiously around him, hoping he'll see us. I decide to sneak up on him and so I grab Greg and we join a huge group of people heading towards the toilets (which are conveniently (sp?) situated right beside Burger King). I sneak up on him but he must have heard me because he turned around at the eact moment I was about to give him a fright. He smiles at me and I start to melt. Greg starts to laugh and he turns around. I'm standing there rooted to the spot not knowing what to do next. I see a seat beside Steven and don't know whether I should take it or not. Too many hard desicions...argghhh...I decide to sit next to Steven and Greg sits grinning at me. We start an argument about something random like his fear of cows. It's almost like an obsession grin.gif. It starts to get loud and I hear a voice so faint I wasn't sure whether I'd imagined it or not.

"Cows," Steven starts to laugh which Greg catches and soon the whole of Burger King is laughing. I just sit in silence while Steven tries to speak again. He doesn't manage it and gives up as it starts to hurt. He tries again a few moments later and looks at me. I feel the embarrassment coming when he tries to say something to me but can't. Then he ushers another single word. "Leanne..."

I feel my jaw dropping and he starts to smile again. I look away and Greg hits his arm as if to say "Well done". Steven flinches and I start to shout at Greg. I turn back to Steven and I look at the bandages barely visible under his new smosh jumper. I feel tears coming on and I run to the bathroom leaving Steven and Greg looking bewildered. I cry for a while and then I hear Greg hammering at the door.

"If you don't get out of there then I'll come in after you..." I dry my eyes and flinch at the though of Greg coming in the girls bathroom, almost like a stalker.
"Right I'm out. What is it?" Greg looks taken aback by this.
"We were wondering if you were alright. Why did you just burst into tears like that?"
"Cause I know it's my fault. It's just not fair that I got him into th..."
"It's not your fault. If Steven hadn't stepped in you might not be here. And at least Steven woke up from the coma."

Steven walks out from around the corner and comes over to me. I gives me a crooked smile and I look away. He looks down at the floor and Greg walks away to give us some privacy. I see the board he uses to speak and start to cry again. He looks up at me and starts to write. It's not your fault. I try to stop crying but I can't. I turn away from him and I hear him coming closer. He puts his arms around me and I turn around. He stands holding me in silence and after a while I stop crying. He looks at me and smiles again. I smile back this time. He puts his arm around my waist and we walk out...together.

Soz. I know it's a crap chapter but I've got really bad writer's block. Hopefully reading new moon will give me inspiration happy.gif. Anyway...comments?

The wonders of 4th year...chapter 14 Aug 8th, 2007 12:17:03 pm - Subscribe
Mood | unloved

I'm doing chapter 14 cause i'm bored and I can't find any of my homework :S. I'm going to be so dead when I get back to school...anyway. This is Leanne's pov again...

Chapter 12 review:

"We have good new and bad news. Which do you want first?"
"Good news" Me and Janet say together.
"The good new is that we've got your friends breathing stable. Bad news is that he's in a coma. We've no idea when he's going to wake up. I'm sorry," He stares at us waiting for a reaction. I sink into a chair and Janet bursts out crying and I promise myself one thing. Luke's going to regret he did that...


Chapter 14:

He's still in a coma. He doesn't seem to want to wake up. We're all stnading around him and he opens his eyes. Everyone speaks to him and he says goodbye to them all...but he just igores me. I see his last tears fall...and then silence. My world falls apart.

RIIINNNGGGGGGGGG!!!
RIIINNNGGGGGGGGG!!!
The sound of the bell wakes me...

I've not been able to concentrate. Everytime I see a knife I freak out. I burst into tears. My friends have now started to make sure I don't see any. We've never been this close before...not since I moved here.

I walk out of french but the teacher keeps me back. She's got a worried look on her face. I zone in and out of the conversation but I get the point. She's worried about me. I've not learned anything since the accident. I've not been able to keep awake and she's had to check nothing with knives has entered the classroom...a bit hard if we've to watch a video about violence or something.

I walk Greg home in silence. We get round the corner from the school and he loses it.

"I can't take it anymore!"
"You can't take what?"
"The fact that you're acting like your life's over just because Steven stopped Luke from stabbing you and got stabbed himself. I mean sure he's in a coma and sure he might not wake up ever again but it's not the end of your life. There's plently of other guys out there waiting for you!"
"Well excuse me for being upset. We did go out you know and I still do have a crush on him. It's not my fault if I feel like it's my fault he got stabbed. I brought him into this..."
"Yeah but he stayed in it. He didn't have to defend you..."
"Yeah but he did. Now excuse me. I'm not walking home with someone who moans at me for being upset about my ex being stabbed..."

I walk away but Greg grabs my arm. He acts like he's going to punch me but his eyes are telling a different story. They're almost pleading me to get over it. I stand directly in front of him and he gives up. He lets me go and I walk off.

"Leanne I'm sorry. It's just that you're ruining your life over a guy that doesn't love you..."

I run off crying and stop when I'm round the corner. I can't run. I've got asthma. I stand there panting. I don't hear Greg coming this way. He must have gone the longer way. I stop crying and walk quickly until I get to the shops. I see Greg coming and I run to the park. My tearstained face hurting with the force of the wind. I see Matt at the park and I decide to stop. I sit on the round-a-bout thing (I don't actually know what it's called XD) and I let the wind move my hair so it's hiding my face. Matt looks at me and I start crying again. I'm shaking this time.

"What's wrong?"
"Nothing..."
"Come on. I know you better than that."
"My life's over. My friends are turning on me and the guy I love's in a coma and it's likely he'll never wake up again"
"Why won't you get over it. There's nicer guys out there...guys that actually love you and care for you. And probably guys that you'll actually love..."
"How could you say that. I LOVE HIM!"

I stand up and glare at Matt. He seems unable to talk. I begin to walk away.

"Wait!" With that I turn around and Matt runs over to me.

"Listen I didn't mean to make you upset. It's just that I love you and I don't want you to get hurt. If you don't get over him then you will...he dumped you remember..."
"Of course I remember. You were the reason why he dumped me!"
"I'm sorry about that. It's just that he's not good enough fo..."
"Not good enough for me! It's the other way around. I'm not good enough for him. You ruined my only chance of happiness..."

I storm off leaving Matt staring after me. I go upstairs and log on. I ignore everyone and lie on my bed. The tears start falling. A couple of days later it's Christmas Eve. I'm still depressd and I think back to what Greg and Matt said. I start to cry and ignore everyone again. I'm sitting staring into space and then I hear someone go online. I look up and see Steven come online. I'm torn between starting a conversation or not. I love him but if what Greg and Matt said was true then he doesn't love me back. I'm ready to click on his name when his conversation comes up. He started it. It must be a good sign happy.gif.

Leanne says:
Hiya
Steven says:
Hiya
Leanne says:
How're you?
Steven says:
Better now. I still can't speak though
Leanne says:
Awww...well I hope you can speak soon
Steven says:
Did you ever come and visit?
Leanne says:
I tried. They wouldn't let me in
Steven says:
Who?
Leanne says:
The doctors. They blame me...


Then there's an awkward silence. but it was worth it. I know that's he's out of the coma. At least there's something to be happy about. I didn't kill him. Well it wasn't me that stabbed him but Luke stabbed him because he thought Steven took me away. He couldn't be more wrong. He drove me away and Steven was my shoulder to cry on. The guy that would comfort me and give me the happiest moments of my life...

Steven says:
Hi. This is Steven's sis
Leanne says:
Hiya
Steven says:
Would you mind coming round sometime? We would really appreciate it
Leanne says:
Sure. If my mum will let me. How come you'll appreciate it?
Steven says:
Well Steven's been depressed lately and we're hoping that you'll cheer him up. You always seem to
Leanne says:
Brb. Need to ask my mum
Leanne says:
Back. She says yes. When?
Steven says:
Well tomorrow's Christmas so I doubt you can come over. Boxing Day?
Leanne says:
Sure


Steven comes back on and we arrange to meet up at Burger King at half 11. Paige and Frank come in for me and I log off. We go somehwere roughly halfway between Barrhead and Coatbridge and head to a park. It's a small park with not much to do there. I tell them I've got to go back soon because I've got homework but they don't listen. They seem to be waiting for something. Alyssa and Gerard come round the corner and enter the park. They yell "come on" to someone and I see Steven come around. He stops when he sees me and his face lights up. He walks awkwardly up to me and I throw myself on him to give him a hug. He seems startled by this but soon he's hugging me back. I don't want this to end. We pull away and he smiles at me.

"How're you?"

He picks up the board and writes "I'm kl". I smile and my mum phones saying I have to go home. Frank gets his parent's to drive me and I'm back within half an hour of leaving. I smile and vow to make it up to Alyssa, Paige, Gerard and Frank.

Well that's chapter 14. Amber helped me with this one. Anyway comments?

Mood | pmsy

Woo...it's chapter 13 *does happy dance*. I promised you it would come. Enjoy...oh and btw I put pmsy as my mood cause it looks cool...not because I actually know what it means XD

Chapter 12 review:

"We have good new and bad news. Which do you want first?"
"Good news" Me and Janet say together.
"The good new is that we've got your friends breathing stable. Bad news is that he's in a coma. We've no idea when he's going to wake up. I'm sorry," He stares at us waiting for a reaction. I sink into a chair and Janet bursts out crying and I promise myself one thing. Luke's going to regret he did that...


Chapter 13:

I'm still lying in a coma. I don't want to want to wake up. They're all standing round me and I open my eyes. Everyone speaks to me and I say goodbye to them all...I just ignore her. It's too painful. I feel my last tears before I let go...then silence...

All I can see is darkness. I like the dark but I don't like this. I desperately try to find a way out but I find I can't move. Then I hear someone crying. I slowly open my eyes. It takes all my energy to see who's crying. My family's around me not acknowledging that I'm awake. Janet is the one I hear crying. She is staring at a picture of a boy with messy, dark hair lying in a hospital bed. Obviously in a coma. It's in manga and I try to look for a trademark I recognise. Then I see it. It's so faint I nearly missed it. It's one of hers...

I try to speak and they all look up. They're suffocating me with their hugs now and I cry out in pain. It still hurts. Janet holds my hand and smiles at me. I look at her but she's not the one I want to see. I speak the one word. It's so faint. I can hardly speak. "Leanne" is all I can say. Janet gets up and walks off. I don't know where she's gone but I can tell she's not coming back. I don't mind. After all it's not her I want.

I come out of hospital a few days later but I still can't speak. They says it's a miracle that I even managed to say her name. They've not been able to get her to come. It's Christmas tomorrow. They let me go online and the names are all blurry. Only one of them is clear and I know who it is without even checking.

Leanne says:
Hiya grin.gif
Steven says:
Hiya
Leanne says:
How're you?
Steven says:
Better now. I still can't speak though sad.gif
Leanne says:
Awww...well I hope you can speak soon
Steven says:
Did you ever come and visit?
Leanne says:
I tried. They wouldn't let me in
Steven says:
Who?
Leanne says:
The doctors. They blame me...


I feel the rage building up in me. Because of the doctors I didn't get to see her...I start to cry and my sister comes in the room. She comforts me and looks at the conversation and realises. She tells me to go downstairs. I walk slowly downstairs carrying the board I've always to carry with me. It's like I'm mentally deformed. I have to use the board to speak. My sister comes down ten minutes later and tells me I can go back. I go upstairs and look at the conversation between me and Leanne. I scroll up to the bit I stopped at and read...

Steven says:
Hi. This is Steven's sis
Leanne says:
Hiya
Steven says:
Would you mind coming round sometime? We would really appreciate it
Leanne says:
Sure. If my mum will let me. How come you'll appreciate it?
Steven says:
Well Steven's been depressed lately and we're hoping that you'll cheer him up. You always seem to
Leanne says:
Brb. Need to ask my mum
Leanne says:
Back. She says yes. When?
Steven says:
Well tomorrow's Christmas so I doubt you can come over. Boxing Day?
Leanne says:
Sure happy.gif


I read the last bit and suddenly I feel invincible. I'll get to see Leanne again...and she's coming over. I can't believe it. We arrange to meet at Burger King (yet again) at half 11 on Boxing Day. I hear my mum shout on me and I run downstairs. My friends are all coming in for me seeing if I want to go to the cinema. My mum nods and my dad throws me my smosh jacket (I'm obsessed with smosh). I run upstairs and say goodbye. I log off and go to the cinema. We get to the cinema and I'm unable to contain my excitement. My friends laugh and soon it's like before. One of them hits me and I flinch.

"I'm so sorry. Are you ok?"
"Yes. Just a bit sore"
"I'm really sorry..."
"It's ok Gerard"
He returns my statement with a smile and walks ahead with Alyssa. They kiss and I look away. It's still too painful to think about. I'm regretting waking up now...

A bit of a crap chapter but I wanted to do Steven's POV again. Anyway...comments?

Mood | great

I've got nothing to do and I'm pissed off at Malcolm. I'm hoping this will calm me down...

Chapter 11 review:

I collapse on my bed. I head people talk to me but I don't talk. I just sit and cry. I cry so much my hole body shakes. After my tears have dried up I look at all the messages I've recieved. Most of them are from Matt and friends that knew about me and Steven. I close all of them and then see I've got an email. I open up the email and see it's from Steven. He's went offline now. He must have realised that I've been ignoring him and that I wouldn't read it until he went offline.

To: Leanne
From: Steven
Message: ...

I'm sorry about earlier. I know you're ignoring me but I need to tell you this...


Chapter 12:

I'm really sorry about earlier and I want to make it up to you. Could we meet up this tomorrow in town? I'll be waiting in Burger King at half 12. Hope you can make it. Anyway I hope you're feeling better soon. Cya x

Steven x


I manage a slight smile at the thought of us meeting up. At least he still wants to be friends. I log off and have a dreamless sleep. Must have been all the crying wink.gif.

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!

I switch my alarm off and fall out of bed. I hear Jenny stir from the noise but she falls asleep again. I get up and throw on my jeans and a new hoodie. A black MCR hoodie. I got it from Gerard for my birthday but never thought to wear it. I run downstairs and look at myself in the mirror. I see a slightly tanned girl with brown hair that frames her oval face staring back at me. Her blue eyes, like an ocean, are glistening with tears. I dry my eyes. I look at my watch and grab a black bag (I've grown attached to black now). My mum comes downstairs and checks if I'm ready and we head out.

I arrive at the train station with a few minutes to spare. I head to Burger King and see Steven sitting with his arm around a girl. Obviously this was his girlfriend. She had straight, jet black hair and chocolate coloured eyes. She was slim and was wearing a black top and black jeans (which had skulls all around them). She looks at me and I see her mouth a hi. I force a smile onto my face and I see her whisper into Steven's ear. He looks at me and smiles. He gestures me to sit down and I walk over slowly not wanting to disturb them.

"Hi Leanne. You feeling better?"
"Yeah," I give a faint nod and look away wanting to be anywhere but here.
"That's good. By the way. This is Janet," He smiles and kissed his girlfriend. I feel the jealousy rise up in me, like a monster ready to strike. She pulls away and tells him off. The jealousy disappears leaving a scar on my heart. Something that can never be fixed...

We walk into a few shops so that Steven's girlfriend can get some new clothes and me and Steven are left standing on our own while she tries them on. He starts to create a conversation but I'm not in the mood. I look away and I feel the tears forming in my eyes. I pull myself together and start to talk to Steven. He looks worried but that is soon changed by my conversation. Soon we're laughing like we used to and Janet comes out of the changing rooms twirling a little so we can have the full affect of the outfit. It looks great on her.

We head to McDonalds and she orders a salad. I start to get embarassed so I get a salad too. We eat in silence and I realise that the salad isn't that bad. Mabey I should get this more often. I don't eat much bfore I start to feel sick. I head to the toilet justin time to be sick. I collapse onto the floorand start to cry. I hear the door opening and Janet walks in. She sees my crying and comforts me but there's nothing she can do. It's too late for that now.

"Why're you crying?"
"It's nothing," I pull away from her and stare at the door.
"There's got to be a reason. You were so happy in the shop,"
"I guess..."
"It's Steven isn't it. You still love him,"
"Listen I don't wa..."
"No you listen. I never realised you would feel like this. If you want I'll dump him.I feel awful about asking him...I only did it to make him feel better!"
"No. You and Steven go and live a happy life together..." I walk away leaving Janet sitting on the floor. I come out and Janet follows, trying to get my attention. Steven looks puzzled and he looks like he's going to speak but he decides against it. I make an excuse about having to go home early and they walk me to the train station to make sure I get there ok. There's an awkward silence when we get there.

"Well bye Leanne..."
"Yeah bye Leanne. Hope you can come out with us soon. It was fun grin.gif"
"Bye and I don't know if I'll be allowed" I begin to head off to my train and I hear someone shout my name. I turn around and see Luke heading towards megiving me a deathly stare. I see something glint in his hand and he turns around, beconing his friends to follow. I start to panic and I'm frozen to the spot. Steven sees Luke and runs towards me. The rage in Luke's eyes deepens and the lunges for me. Steven punches Luke and Luke pushes, with all his might, the knife into Steven's chest. His friends gather round and attack him. I scream and they try to get me with the knife but are stopped by the security. They run off and are cornered. I see them get taken into a polic car. It's as if time's stopped for me. I keep staring at Steven just lying there not moving with blodd gushing out of him. I can't control myself anymore and I cry uncontrollably. The ambulance comes and I get to go to the hospital with Steven. Janet comes too. We sit in silence the whole way while we let the medicals in the ambulance try to save Steven. His face has gone a deathly shade of white and it looks as if he's stopped breathing.

We get to the hospital and I wait impatiently while the doctors are trying to get Steven's breathing stable. It seems forever until they come out and tell us the result.

"We have good new and bad news. Which do you want first?"
"Good news" Me and Janet say together.
"The good new is that we've got your friends breathing stable. Bad news is that he's in a coma. We've no idea when he's going to wake up. I'm sorry," He stares at us waiting for a reaction. I sink into a chair and Janet bursts out crying and I promise myself one thing. Luke's going to regret he did that...

Ohhh...tounge.gif. Don't worry. Chapter 13 will be here soon. I promised people I would do 2 chapters. But I'm going to do Steven's POV in the next chapter...Comments please grin.gif
