I'm sick.  Fever, sore throat and a runny nose.  Doesn't sound like I'll be making it to any Halloween parties today.

Page Fifty!

Oh yeah, I got to a landmark, page fifty!!  And I did a few plot twists that contradict some of the stuff I've already written, so I'll just have to find away around it.  Muahahha....

My brothe has been talking a lot about Proposition 8, and ususally I don't like to talk about same-sex marriage.  It just sounds kind of creepy to me. . .
Anyway, there are a few things that I'd like to talk about.
First off, here's a few things from an E-mail that I got.
(Not edited.  I don't like Swear Words, but I also don't want to get sued because this is probably copy-righted.)

Lee Iacocca

'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'Stay the course'

Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned 'Titanic' I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the bums out!'

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore.

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While we're fiddling in Iraq , the Middle East is burning and nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have.

The Biggest 'C' is Crisis !

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with your feet up on the desk and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down. George Bush, Dick Chaney and who is this Bozo
coming up next? One of the most Liberal Idiots in the U. S. Senate and he is talking about disarming America . I can't believe the American people are seeing what he is about to do to this country. May God have mercy on us all.

On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A Hell of a Mess. So here's where we stand. We're immersed in a bloody war with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving. We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the country. We're losing the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great Companies are all moving offshore. We're getting slaughtered by health care costs. Gas prices are skyrocketing, and nobody in power has a coherent energy policy. Our schools are the worst in the world. Our borders are like sieves. The middle class is being squeezed every which way. These are times that cry out for leadership and we are getting ready to put the most Liberal Senator in the U. S. Senate in as our next President because we want to be fair and elect someone just because of his race. We don't have time to be fair, we need a strong leader.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I hope you get the point.

Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo? We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

Name me one leader who emerged from the crisis of Hurricane Katrina. Congress has yet to spend a single day evaluating the response to the hurricane, or demanding accountability for the decisions that were made in the crucial hours after the storm. Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping it doesn't happen again. Well guess what people? We are having more floods right now. What are we doing to help these people out. Now, that's just crazy. Storms happen. Deal with it. Make a plan. Figure out what you're going to do the next time. Why are we allowing people to build in flood plains anyway? If you build in a flood area, expect to be flooded and deal with it. Don't expect the Government to bail you out.

Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. All they seem to be thinking now-days is getting themselves bigger salaries and bonuses.
Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, what are we going to do about it? likely nothing!

Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem.
 The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.

I have news for the gang in Congress and the Senate. We didn't elect you to sit on your asses and do nothing and remain silent while our democracy is being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on Fox News will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change? I honestly don't think any of you have one!

Had Enough?

Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope; I believe in America .... In my lifetime I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's greatest moments I've also experienced some of our worst crises: the 'Great Depression', 'World War II', the 'Korean War', the 'Kennedy Assassination', the 'Vietnam War', the 1970's oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years culminating with 9/11. If I've learned one thing, it's this:

'You don't get anywhere by standing on the sidelines waiting for somebody else to take action. Whether it's building a better car or building a better future for our children, we all have a role to play. That's the challenge I'm raising in this book. It's a call to 'Action' for people who, like me, believe in America . It's not too late, but it's getting pretty close. So let's shake off the crap and go to work Let's tell 'em all we've had 'enough.'

Vote Accordingly!!

My brother was asked if he wanted Obama to be president, and he said no.  The next questions was "Are you racist?"  Not "Because you don't agree with him" or "Because he's a democrat"  But because the second person thought he was racist.  I say this; I couldn't care less about whether or not he has dark skin or not.  "I think, therefore I am."  You could bring up Retarded people that can't think, and I admit that I am not sure what I might say to that, but if Obama is elected, we will be attacked in the next six months.  I might be wrong, but I don't think that I am.
Anyway, I think that I'm going to go and write more.

I got a FAMAS Airsoft gun yesterday, but I'm not sure what to think about it. I love Airsofting, but we shouldn't worship war and bloodshed, right? If you make something, and it's sole purpose is to kill another human being, and then someone makes a copy of said object, are both objects evil because they both are intended for killing?


On the other hand, said object can also protect the innocent, the ones who would be killed if the object didn't exist.

AHA! Comic cutout things!

Wanted to make a good comic, but couldn't figure out how to do the stupid speech bubbles?

With this, you can make a comic in a few minutes, if you have, or maybe MS paint.

If You Could Hie to Kolob!

Even if you aren't LDS, this song is amazing!

A plank,
Step 1: do a pushup.  An army pushup, not a ninny one!
Step 2: stop at the apex (highest part) of the pushup.
Step 3: now hold it for a minute.
Harder than you thought, right?  Well now try to do it for over two minutes.  If you're like me, you would've collapsed.
Now do one every day for a year?  You won't be Ahnuld, but you'll probably be in better shape then what you started out to be.

I signed up, as Kyle Michael Hendricks.


Dumb, short lovey dovey stuff that I wrote when I was eleven and had ADHD, so I was actually 8 or 9.

PLEASE NOTE!  I'm very sure that I am a much better writer now...

Plz! iz sure dat iz batta riter now, so reedz on in warningz.

Hi, you already know my name smile.gif ,
but the question is, do you know my story?

It all started on a day like no other, where the lightning crashed into the ground right next to each of the other lightning bolts.
The wind did not come and the rain stopped as sudden as it had started.
That day was august 4th, and it is a day that my mother still talks about
on all of her baby-forums. The weirdest thing was, I was born prematurely
because of lightning. My mom and dad were at the park, when suddenly
a storm came over the mountains quicker than anything or anyone had ever seen
before. It struck lightning so fast the only thing you could hear was a dull
sound, like an explosion, only a lot deeper. It struck my mother so hard she was 
forced into labor at 24 weeks. . . the doctor said that I wouldn't live.
But, I did. So 12 years later here I am today standing outside my new school,
and a new experience. But what I didn't know was that I didn't need any money, 
or any of the expensive game consoles that everyone seemed to give me,
no, what I wanted was just to be left alone at school. everyone teased me about my hair which was so dark it was blue. My eyes were blue, my skin was as pale as concrete, and my favorite color was, you guessed it, blue. 

My friends were Alice, Jessie, Jason, Julie, Mark, and Samantha.
Here's some profiles:
Alice (girl) Dirty blond hair and the nicest kid in school, she has brown eyes.
Jessie (boy) If there's one word to define Jessie it's "cowboy".
Jason (boy) Black hair blue, eyes and the best looking boy in school.
Julie (girl) Best brains ever. If she had the choice she'd be in college by now but her parents can't afford it, so she's stuck here. blue eyes and she's a brunette
Mark (boy) Can beat anyone at any game ever made, with green eyes and almost white hair he not only plays games, he makes them.
Samantha(girl) More beautiful than super stars and she's modest. Emerald green eyes and red hair. She's a rose, beautiful, at least until you mess with her.

Now, to school:

1St Person View

I walked up to the Science Lab and sat down next to Julie, a girl I had met yesterday. The teacher was talking about static electricity, so after talking for about a half hour, he gave everyone a balloon and told them to rub it against their body, particurally their hair (the girls all shot the science teacher looks of hate).
After a few minutes of rubbing it against their stomach, chest and hair, the ballons started to stick to their clothing. About 15 minutes later, we all came out of the room and ran to the cafeteria to eat lunch. 
On my way there I ran into Dan and Bryan, the school bullies. They stared at me wondering between their combined 45 IQ, who should grab me, and who should punch me first. Once they decided who would do what, they grabbed me by the arms and punched me several times in the face, then dragged me outside onto the playground. they continued to beat me up for over an hour. Then, they dragged me into a closet and locked the door. I don't remember when I went unconsious or I woke up. 
When I came to, I found myself in the nurses office, surrounded by my freinds Alice, Jessie, Jason, Mark, Julie and Samantha. I sat up and looked into a mirror and saw a miserable beaten-into-a-pulp face.

When i woke up at 5:45 in the morning the next day, i ached all over my body and it hurt whenever i moved.
i got up, got dressed and went down to eat breakfast. at 7:00 i said goodbye to mom and went out the door.

When i got to school i was confronted by dan and bryan they smiled stupidly and said" came back did ya?"
"well i'm here aren't i!" i said. dan smiled and said "ready for another beating?" "no" "well your gonna get one!"
they cornered me against the lockers and whistled, all of the kids dropped what they were doing and made a
circle around me. dan punched me in the arm, while bryan kicked me in the leg. the kids are all screaming 
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT, while alice julie and samantha are all struggling to help me fight off these giants,
jessie,jason and mark are all trying to hold back the girls. 
dan punched me so hard in the stomach that i 
lost my breath and crumpled on the floor.
then i swung my foot into bryans feet, he toppled over and grabbed
dan by his shirt while dan grabbed alice by the front of her shirt. 
I got crushed by three bodies
while alice tried to help me up dan hit her in the stomach, she was lifted up off the ground and thrown in to a locker.
mark rushed to see if she was hurt, "i'm fine i'm fine" she kept saying but she winced wenever she talked and said 
OW whenever someone touched her back.while i watched mark help her up, bryan hit me square in the head, 
i saw stars for a few seconds but was already preparing to hurtle myself at dan for hitting my freind.
I launched my self at dan, who saw me coming and let me pass until he could grab my legs. he threw me like a rag doll
at samantha i hit her in the stomach, we both crumpled to the ground and i didn't get up for a while. that is,
until they started picking on my other freinds. mark hit the wall, jessie was slammed into a locker , jason
was knocked unconsious, and then the girls were left. dan smiled stupidly and said" come here girly girlys"
i got up and felt electrucuted, power flowed into my fingers and everything made of metal started
glowing blue, dark electric blue with veins of electricity zapping across them, my eyes had electricity zapping in and out
of them then i started floating, with one foot slightly above the other, i looked at dan and bryan and smiled,
an electric smile, then i put my hands forward and an electric bolt, the size of my fist shot at dan, while a sizzle
of electricity hit bryans butt.i continued to hurt them until they ran, squealing like piglets.
Then tired beyond beileif i crumpled on the ground panting. while my freinds gathered around me i looked up and saw
mark give me a thumbs up. I looked around until i fainted.
I woke up in the nurse's office and looked around for anyone besides the nurse. 
I saw Jason laying on the bed next to me
with Mark and Alice at the foot of his bed, then I saw a long mane of red hair on my shoulder, I looked up and saw Samantha staring at me with emerald eyes. Julie and Jessie were talking to the nurse.
Samantha walked over to the foot of my bed and said "I don't think those bullies will be picking at you for a while" I smiled and said "Let's hope so". When I got home that night I said to Mom "Do I have to go to school tomorrow?", "No, tomorrow's saturday." She replied
"Then can I invite my friends over?" He asked hopefully. "Sure" after dinner that night I went to check my E-mail and saw that I had 45,830 new e-mails
I blinked and saw that a few were from either Jason or Samantha saying that someone was invading their house and that they had grabbed their laptops and e-mailed me. The last one was from Samantha saying (It was an audio e-mail) 
"I don't know who this guy is but he's freaking me out, my parents went out on a date and so I'm here all alone. When this guy came up, instead of knocking he jumped through the front window and started making an odd clicking sound,
crap, here he comes . . . Whew, I think he's oh no no no no no no no please (silence) .
"That was an odd voice mail" I thought the one before that was almost the same except everyone had gone to the movies except Jason and he said "leave the garage door slightly open for me, I'm coming over at 3:00 in the morning". I glanced at the clock, it was 2:45 AM. I gasped and ran to
the garage and opened it slightly, then i ran to the computer when a pop up warning appeared saying "You have 4 new mail
messages" I quickly listened to each voice mail they each said that each friend was coming over at various times in the night
I saw 5 people coming and sliding through the garage and slipping onto a couch. Mark came over and said, "Have you heard from 
Samantha?" "No" I replied "Well, I don't know what was going on over there but I hope that she's okay"
Then I glanced at the garage and saw someone slide in, it was Samantha.
Sam climbed onto a couch then sat there shivering for a few minutes.
Jason exchanged a worried expression with me and Mark, and then
we climbed over to her and said," Sam, what's wrong?" 
Then I noticed that she was clutching her sleeve with her hand.
I tried to coax her into letting me see her sleeve,
but she would only let go if we promised never to tell anyone.
She slowly moved her hand away and her sleeve fell off.
From her shoulder down it was torn and shredded, 
as if something had tried to cut her arm off using a shredding machine;
Though, they didn't do a very good job. As the sleeve fell to the floor I saw 
that she was cut on her shoulder, and a little blood 
was coming from her neck. Then without warning she gave a
huge shiver and fainted; Her chin on my shoulder. I wrapped 
my arms around her waist and carried her to the couch i usually 
sleep on, on Friday nights.
I put a pillow behind her head and gave her my blanket.
I then turned and sat down on another couch, thinking. A few 
hours later I glanced at the clock. It was 4:59 AM
"At least it's Saturday" I thought.
Everyone else slept in except me;I couldn't sleep. For fear of someone else being attacked.
At 8:32 AM Jason and Jessie woke up and went to the table for breakfast.
A few minutes later Alice woke up and joined Jason and Jessie for breakfast,
While I stared at the ceiling, Mark stirred, waking Sam up on his way. 
She woke up, looked around, then went to eat breakfast.
I joined them a few minutes later, popping Eggo waffles into the toaster.
I walked over to the counter since there
wasn't any room at the table, and sat next to Sam. I said "Are you okay?"
"I-I don't know." I stared at the counter thinking.
When my Eggo's popped up they flew over an arch and landed right onto my plate. 
Istarted to eat them.
After a few minutes Jason came and asked me 
"What should we do for fun today?"
I sat there thinking (" what should we play today?").
After a few minutes I said "I know, let's play tag!" "Okay!!"
Everyone took turns dressing and showering in the bathroom.
When everyone was all dressed we ran outside 
and played tag for about 4 hours. When we finally stopped we 
collapsed on the couches and watched TV for a while.
Saturday flew by in a day of fun. Saturday night we all prepared 
to leave and see if any damage was done to our homes, everyone kept making shifty looks at me because of my incident yesterday morning, Sam was closest 5 doors down, with Jessie next to her and Julie across the street. Mark and Jason were brothers and they lived across from Sam while I was five doors up from them.
We saw a broken window and Marks smashed-into-splinters garage and Jason's hacked computer Julie had a hole in her roof and Alice had her computer room smashed into the neighboring wall.

A few hours later we returned to my house with all of our Sunday stuff and slept in the living room again.
when I woke up everyone was gone, I saw a note on the fridge that read:
look in the ice cream parlor tongue.gif P.S. Mark was trying to scare you!"

I smiled to myself, then glanced at the calender on the fridge and noticed that Monday was highlighted instead of Sunday.
Shaking my head, I went out the door and headed to the Ice cream Parlor.
When I saw smoke coming from the ice cream parlor I ran toward it as fast as I could, what I saw chilled me to the marrow in my bones, gone, everything was gone.
there was nothing left of the ice cream parlor but bodies. 
those bodies were all my friends the ice cream maid and the rest of the staff.
Luckily they were all breathing,
I rushed over to check on everyone, the worst was the malt server who had gotten a burnt face.

"What's going on with my life?"
"Why are all my friends getting hurt?"
"And what happened at school during the fight with Dan and Bryan?

As i helped julie up there was a ground quaking explosion
i looked on my left, and saw the mall fly into peices
I began to be amazed " a 24 story mall was just blown into splinters!"

a black dot was flying towards evan's head
getting bigger and bigger

i don't know what made her do it if i'd known........

but i didn't so i couldn't stop it

the black dot kept getting bigger then i realised it was 
the thing that had been horrifying the past few days of my life

it was in a karate stance and was aiming for my chest

i couldn't move, i was rooted to the spot.

sam tried to move me but i was like concrete

it was just about to hit me when alice jumped in it's path.

it hit her square in the chest.
she flew 20 feet into the air and hit a 
bed that had been blown here from the mall,

when it landed it brushed against me with it's finger, 
pain shot through my chest almost as if i had been shot,
i crumpled i could not see i could not move i could not do anything 
but hear my freinds scream in pain.

when i could move again i got up and looked around, 
sam was on top of jessie, alice was still on the bed with jason and mark
around her. i ran towards sam and jessie,
just as i grabbed sam's arm to pull her off jessie, pain shot into my chest,
what i had not realized was that i had been stabbed, 
in the chest, by a quill from the beast
"now i know why sam was bleeding on the neck and shoulder"
I pulled the quill out and threw it aside
then helped an unconsious sam off jessie, when i was done 
with that i ran towards alice.
I ran towards the bed and asked mark what was wrong with alice, he didn't respond,
he just stood there.
then the truth sunk in
"she's dead, the nicest kid in school was dead"
i started crying
then i felt angry, angry that she died to protect me, when i should have died to save her
tears were still silently streaming down my face when sam came over to the bed.
for the next half hour my shoulder was
a pillow for tears, i didn't mind though my shirt was already soaked with blood.
2 years later
we had not seen the beast since that fateful day, when alice died.
on my 14 birthday
august 4
everyone was there('cept alice)
and it was fun exept one thing,
no one had seen jessie for a couple weeks.
and we were getting worried.
Sam was the same age as I was only I was a week older
When it was time for cake i ate half my peice, then looked up and saw everyone 
was staring at the door so i wheeled around in my chair and saw THE BEAST
it was carrying jessies body. he had quills stuck all over his back and was grimancing in pain
as i was watching, a trickle of blood dropped onto the kitchen floor.
at one point julie screamed. 
jason jumped at the creature and tried to attack his head,but the creature shot quills at jason
before he could even reach him. i ran upstairs and grabbed a metal baseball bat and ran downstairs
and saw the creature drop jessie and rear up, it shot quills everywhere and then, i heard nothing
several hours later i woke up and saw small puddles of blood all over the kitchen floor and julie's
body. i got up and saw a bloody note on the counter that said"Evan stay where you are protect julie at all cost's the creature told me to write this,
love sam.
"So he got sam did he"i said
i walked over to julie and looked over her for a while. when i suddenly noticed that jason was lying on
the couch, breathing deeply. i stood up and saw everyone but sam there.
when i went outside to the garage to get band-aids for jessie, i saw a body lying by the bushes when i ran there i saw that it was sam,
when i got sam into the house and onto the couch i saw that she was breathing rapidly and that her lip was bleeding, i got jason to tend to jessie while i tried to get sam to do something other then breathe. her shoulder had another quill stuck in it and her hair had dried blood. i thought back over the last two years and realised that there was something familiar about this, on a hunch i pulled up sams sleeve to her shoulder and saw a tiny quill, i ran to the bathroom,got tweezers and pulled the tiny quill out. as soon as i did sam came out of her trance and said "what a horrible day today has been" i put on a weak smile and nodded,
then sam nearly vomited on me, but instead got it into a bowl i had put on the floor under each couch for such an occasion, she started shivering and asked for a blanket i ran and got one i gave it to her and checked on jessie and julie, when i came back i inspected sam for any more injuries and aside from a couple of quills she was fine. after a while i found myself dozing off while taking care of jessie.
he had not woken up for a time period longer than 3 or 4 minutes in witch we would question him about his stay with the creature. after about an hour sam said that she wanted to try something with jessie,
she could stand fine but if she fell or tripped even once, she would cut herself so i found a box and cleared a way for her to walk on. when she got to jessie she nelt down and said "jessie ,come on wake up please jessie," she patted him on the cheek and said "wake up jessie,come on jessie, wake up only for a half hour".
when he stirred he said"it beat me up put quills in my shoulder and said it will kill every one of my freinds starting with alice, then sam then jason then julie, then mark, and last Evan.
when i stood up ,jason said "well if i'm next then i'll be ready".
sam tried to stand up, and nearly hit the sharp medical equipment, but i grabbed her arm and helped her up. i glanced up at the clock and saw that it was 11:00 o'clock at night.
i made a bed behind the kitchen table and watched the oven clock slowly tick towards midnight.
at one point in the night i heard someone thrashing on the couch, so i slowly got up and peered over the couch, i saw sam jerking and twisting and thrashing.i wondered what was she dreaming about that was making her thrash around like that?" so i went and layed back down, but i could not go to sleep. i listned to her thrashing around, wich lasted to 7:42 in the morning.
I have to admit, i wanted that creature dead, dead for putting quills in jessies back, for putting sam into a trance and putting her and all of my other freinds in pain.i wanted it dead.

at around eight i got up and peered over the couch to check on sam and jessie,
when i looked over i saw sam, breathing rapidly, she kept pushing her shoulder and feet on the end of the couch, causing her body to arch up, as i watched a line of blood went up her shoulder and onto the couch, i looked for the source and saw a hole in the back of her shirt small enough that you could barely fit a toddlers pinky toe in there. so i grabbed the tweezers stuck them in the hole and grabbed the quill,
i pulled hard and the quill flew out and hit the fridge and blew up. sam stopped moving. i saw a shadow in her eyes and looked for the source, when i couldn't find it i looked in her eyes again, the shadow wasn't there. i put the cover over sam and then tended to jessie.
jason woke up and looked over at sam, she was asleep, then he looked at me and whispered"is sam okay? i heard her tossing and turning all night" "yes she's fine i just found another quill that kept bugging her sleep so i threw it at the fridge" i said
he looked at me oddly and said" you love her don't you" i blushed and, checking that she was asleep said" yes, i do" jason smiled and confessed that he knew it since he saw us first meet in kindergarten.
when sam woke up I realised that i was hungry, so i walked to the cereal cupboard and got down cinnomin toast crunch. a few minutes later jason and sam came over and ate breakfast,when i was done i dumped the left-overs into the sink and put my bowl in the dishwasher, it was full so i started it.
jessie started moaning so i went over to see what was wrong.
nothing was wrong so i figured it must have been a bad dream.
sam came over to me and said "there was a quill in my back wasn't there?"
"yes but i pulled it out and threw it at the fridge" she smiled and said" that's where the blood came from" jason suddenly said "shhh!!!" as i listned i heard a soft tapping sound on the front door, i glanced at sam and whispered i need a volenteer to go around one side of the house while i go around the other, jason said"i'll stay here with mark julie and jessie you two go around the house and see if you can distract whatever it is" i said " okay me and sam, jason theres an old bomb shelter next to the peach jars down in the basement get down there and hide, if sam isn't back there in 20 minutes there's an old tunnel that leads under the tramp in the back, okay?" "ok" i ran around the shorter side of the house and saw a huge black thing, softly tapping on the door with it's enormous finger, when sam saw it she barely held a scream back. i motioned for her to go behind the mailbox, she shook her head and motioned me to get inside while she attacked the monster. then i motioned her to let me distract it while she ran back around the house. she shrugged, then she ran i picked up a rock and threw it at the creature, it screeched and chased me around the house,i ran to the back and slid under the tramp, nearly kicking sam in the face. the creature roared into the night.
As the creature stormed into the front yard sam sighed, I let out air and jason asked us to help carry jessie and julie upstairs. Mark went upstairs to check everything out.
As soon as he came downstairs he nearly fainted. As I looked at his back I saw it was covered in little quills 
I really felt bad for him as he nearly collapsed on Jason, then Jason went white and i walked over to him and looked up the stairs, what I saw drained my face of blood.
There was a creature at the top of the stairs.
Sam joined me and saw the creature, she tugged me and jason out of there into the backyard and we ran, ran until it felt as if my legs were going to fall off. Then there was a cliff. "What the heck!!" Exclaimed Sam as she nearly fell off, catching her balance just in time. I looked around for a few minutes then said "We have to jump!" instead of arguing, Jason just nodded, ran back a couple of feet and started running pell-mell to the edge of the cliff, he jumped and made it to the other side, for a half hour everyone jumped over the cliff until I was left, then I ran, jumped, and rolled landing right next to Sam, who was still panting.
Jason looked over and saw the creature roar in fury, then Sam looked over and found that we were in big trouble. There was more than 1 creature, in fact there was 8, and 7 of them where right in front of us.
Sam would have screamed, but she was knocked out at the same time everyone else was. I was the only one left consious to deal with these monsters, it was worse than dan and bryan X4, I was thrown, quilled, kicked, punched and was getting blown away.


When I woke up I saw Evan laying on the ground, blood trickling from his lips, he had dirty clothes, in short he looked as if he'd been dragged through a mountain.
I got up and saw that his eyes were open, so I waved my hand over his face,
I lifted up his arm and let it drop, nothing.
I tried saying his name, nothing.
A tear leaked from my eye and hit his cheek, nothing.
I lifted him up and set him on his feet, he fell over and stayed in that position.
"Well, he's breathing" I thought.
After an hour of trying I gave up, and woke Jason up and said " I tried waking Evan up but he won't move"
Jason said "Have you tried everything?"
"Well nothing short of kissing him"
"Well maybe that's what you should do"
"You want me to kiss him?"
"Did I say that?"
"Well I thought you did"
I stared at him for a few seconds, then got up and went toward Evan and tried everything again but nothing worked, so giving up... I kissed him...


I started focusing on what my eyes were seeing when I felt lips touch my lips.
I sat up and saw Sam sitting next to me, I slowly touched my lips and when I looked at my fingers, they had a mixture of blood and lipstick on them. When I looked back at Sam she smiled and said "It was the only thing that worked" I got up and said, " Well........ umm........... " before I could finish she said "What happened?"
"I'll try to describe it in four words, I WAS BEATEN UP "
She frowned and said "Well i expected that but...."
"I just wish that they would leave everyone else alone"
I winced as I felt her touch me "Sorry" she said.
I only nodded as I walked over to jason,
he smiled and said" Just gotten your first kiss have you?"
Sam turned away blushing but I said "Yes".
"Well I guess we should wake the others and get a move on" said Jason.
"Ya, I guess we should go but first can I sleep for a couple hours?" I asked.
"Why? hoping for another kiss?" said Jason mockingly.
"No!" I said firmly.
"Sure I'll get someone to wake you up in an hour or two."
"Thanks." I got up and looked around, and saw a good spot to curl up on and went to sleep.
I felt myself being shaken by someone, so I woke up and saw Sam shaking me I said "Okay, okay I'm awake now!" she stood up and walked away. I got up and looked around and saw everyone staring at me as if something was my fault. So I stood next to Mark and asked "Why is everyone staring at me like that?"
"Everyone want's to know what happened" I looked around and said loudly "I was beaten, quilled, thrown, punched, and finally drugged so that I would not wake unless I was shown affection from a friend."
then I started walking towards an old church house. The doors were old and cracked so they broke down easily. We took refuge in the church house for almost a week before we ran out of bread and water, so we kept moving on getting closer and closer to salt lake, where it said on the radio, apparently was a safe haven
it was like a massacre seeing family's in destroyed houses...
One day Sam went to check out an old mansion.
when we heard her scream I volunteered to go and see what was wrong.
I entered the huge hall and saw drag marks in the dust leading up a staircase and into the dining room, so when I went in there I saw Sam bound and knocked unconscious being guarded by four creatures.
One of them had it's feather like quills pointed at Sam.
I saw on the news that these creatures hated light so I got out a match and prepared to light the tablecloth on fire, then I noticed the quill was green (on the news it had said that blue was stun green was kill and red was a dream like state where the victim would only be woken if they were shown love) if I light the tablecloth on fire it may kill Sam, if I don't though Sam was as good as dead.
making up my mind I lit the match and carefully lit the tablecloth on fire, then jumping i grabbed Sam by the arm and ran out of the hall carrying her as best I could.
when we got back to the old Cellar we were staying in I put Sam down as gently as I could without hurting her. then told everyone what I did.
when I went to sleep that night I saw Sam and Jason sneaking off towards another old mansion. "Probably to gather supplies" I thought.
When I woke up the next day it was already noon so I got up and headed towards the already half made spin the bottle circle to see what was going on "What are you guys doing?" I asked Mark, "well Sam and Jason went out to try and find another place to stay last night and they haven't come back yet"
Julie spun the bottle and it landed on me.
"Well I guess I'm going then." I shrugged and left the circle.
After 30 minutes of looking I found an old mansion than had signs of people going in,
so I went inside and found myself in the great hall. I looked around and saw evidence of a fight. Scattered footprints, woodpiles with nothing in them.
I rounded a corner and found a note that said "Found tank, went around back.
I ran back to camp and found another note that said "Found a better hiding spot, office on 1245 S. 800 W."
I followed the directions and found the office building. I climbed several floors and found a room that had a door that was slightly ajar. As soon as I stepped in, Jessie bumped me out of the way and said " I found a tank, anyone want to go along and blow away some of those alien scutbags?" "I do, but where in the world did you find a tank?" asked Mark "I'll come" I said, Sam shot me a disapproving look but I didn't notice.
when we got out of the office Jessie said "The tank's over here!" we got into the tank and down the hatch, I looked around and saw two side machine guns and one main cannon.

I took the left hand side machine gun and did a test round, I noticed a barrel sitting next to a Subway entrance, I turned the machine gun to face it and fired! the barrel exploded, shrapnel flew everywhere. We traveled at around 50 mph going down a deserted freeway, then we turned around. and went back to the hospital. As we shot down the freeway, heading back to the hospital, I noticed something move on the HUD. I switched it to thermal scanning and found four targets. I yelled to Jake "I got four readings on the HUD! I think that they're human, but I can't be sure until we stop!" Jake grimaced, then nodded and eased off the yoke.
As soon as we stopped, I climbed up the short ladder and popped the lid. I looked over at where the Bio-readings were coming from and yelled "It's okay, we will not hurt you! Please come out and show yourselves!
Four children stepped out from behind the ruined remains of an ATM, all around 14. I jumped down and helped them climb up and into the tank. as soon as they sat down, I asked them what their names were.
"Alex" A little girl with bright green eyes. "JC, but me real name is Todd." I noticed that JC clutched the third little girls arm, and that he was wary like a wolf.
The girl next to JC spoke up, "I-I--I'm...... Courtney.". She looked scared, and jumped whenever anything touched her.
As Jake pushed on the yoke to get the tank moving, I noticed several more thermal readings on the HUD of the station opposite mine. I got up and, crouching, walked over to the HUD and pressed several buttons to zoom in. "Uh oh, Boron vouchers at five O'clock!" I glanced up ahead to see what Jake was doing. I grimaced, Jake was retching into an old bucket that was sitting in the front seat.
We screeched off the freeway and almost hit the wall of the office. We got out, and out of the corner of my eye I saw a brown and black shape leap from the top floor of the office. I looked up to see what it was, but it was gone.
We went inside and climbed up the stairs. As we reached the room where we stayed, 
I noticed a hole in the wall. Stepping into the room, I noticed a computer terminal that I hadn't before. I walked over to where Jessie was kneeling and asked what had happened. He looked up and said "One flew through the window, one from the wall, one from the doorway and in the hall..." I got up and examined the couch where 
Julie was lying. She wasn't breathing, "JAKE!! Get over here! Where's the first aid!! C'mon guys, what are you standing around for!?" Then the truth hit, she was gone.
Sam came over from the closet and kneeled down next to me. She said "We can't save everyone." I nodded grimly and got up. "Blast it!", I walked around the room and asked in a cold voice, "What is this thing?" I pointed at the computer terminal and stared at Sam. She walked over next to me and said "I'm not entirely sure, It came down when the Boron were in the room and activated something downstairs.
I pressed the bold ACTIVATE button and waited for something to happen.
A part of the wall popped out and then lowered itself to the floor. I walked over and peered in. Shotguns, ammo, a few Desert Eagles and a grenade.
then it dispensed a shotgun and a hand gun and enough bullets for the milatary to use"
"are you okay?" i asked "i-i don't know" she said then Jace came up and said " i don't know who you are but i want you to know we'll join your group. Sam looked at the 7 year old and said "where did you come from?" "the tank boys picked me, my little brother and my little sister,up and now we're stuck with you."
"where'd Mark and Jason go?" asked Sam " i don't know" i said, "well i'm not sure if we got all of the aliens."
Sam said. after a few seconds we heard a yell a few screeches and an elavator ding before we saw Mark and Jason run into the front room, they yelled "RUN, GET OUT OF HERE,NOW!"
we all ran to the tank and piled in, Jessie in the front, with Sam gunning left and me gunning right and julie in the back. there was 2 aliens chasing us and they where chasing us at 70 mph. while the tanks max was 72 mph, after about 45 minutes we got into another small rubble town.

[This last chapter has lot's of comments from Alex Pages! He's the one in colored writing...]

As we rounded the corner, we found 3 more aliens waiting for us. When they saw us one of them drew his hand back so as to punch the tank, 
I recall Jessie screaming "HOLD ON TIGHT!" 
The tank exploded, and all of us went flying from the force of it. Somehow I managed to land on top of an adjacent building unharmed. 
I saw Sam land next to a dumpster, and Jace and Jason landed on the same building I did. Isn't that convenient?

I noticed a smallish sized hole under a nearby building, and started heading towards it. As my friends and I raced towards the door, Horsey_Ride.gif I felt my power kick in full gear. 

I blew the door open, and the aliens took me to be one of them. 
How did this happen? Hey look, it's a human posing as a porcupine with electricity running down his body! He must be one of us! ^.^ 
Walking over, I accidently brushed against one of them. He looked at me with a confused face. 

I smiled at him, and channeled some electricity into the ground. I started to run as the ground exploded, and all the aliens went flying! 
And it was awesome, cause I was there. ^.^ 
When they landed I electrocuted them, trying to get revenge for all the pain they had caused me recently.Revenge is a dish best served... Electrocuted? huh.gif Lifting them up, I saw the fear in their eyes, and I flung them as far as I could into the distance. Feeling my powers leaving, i felt as if somebody had hit me in the head. I took a few steps forward, trying to clear my vision. The ground rushed up towards me, and everything went black.

When I woke up, I saw things differently than I had a few hours ago, blues stuck out more and reds were dimmed, Sam came up to me Ahh, true lovers never are truly seperated.... tongue.gif and said "Are you okay?" 
I replied "Yeah I think I'm fine but something's wrong with my eyes.." Sam looked concerned. "How so?" I explained that my vision was distorted, with the blues and reds sharper than normal. "That's odd." She declared. "Do you know where we are?" I asked.
Sam suddenly look frightened, and she backed up against the wall " I-I can't tell you that!" <.< >.> I'm SCARED! It's so mysterious! I frowned and said "Why not?"
"P-please, no more questions." Her voice was quivering, and her face was pale. unsure.gif
I went over to try and comfort her. "If there's somthing wrong, like a quill stuck somewhere I can get rid of it" I said soothingly. Instead of answering she walked up to me and whispered "They're watching us" dun Dun DUN!

at this she grimanced in pain. as I watched I noticed she had a device around her neck that was disguised as a necklace, but I could feel the electricity flowing through it, so I grabbed her hand and sent electricity at the necklace, it blew up, but we were protected by a static feild I erected. when it was over I blew open the wall and discovered that we where in some kind of underground base. I turned and looked at sam and said " you can talk now" " well, when you fainted, after you flung those aliens, we where dragged into a base and loaded into tubes against our will I think that we where paired into groups of two and sent to different cells"
as I looked around I saw jessie and julie being used as target practice for the aleins, just as I was about to jump Sam held me back. I looked into her eyes and said " let me go" she loosend her grip, but didn't let go.
" Evan please, don't let me get kidnapped again" borg.gif I realised that after I flung the aliens, I left everyone else up for grabs. "I'll take you with me then." I grabbed her around the waist and jumped off the cliff that seperated the base. when I sensed we where far enough that I could launch us up, I balanced myself fell down and shot up again, I couldn't help but whoop as we soured over the aleins that were using jessie and julie as target practice. I landed, let go of Sam and jumped down on the aliens again. I felt the electricity flow through me and saw a rock roughly shaped like a handle of some sort, I channeled some electricity into it and fashioned my self a blue lighsaber all within 15 minutes I carved it so it had an opening that I could put a crystel into it. I looken into the ground with a sliver of electricity and found a saphire gem just below my feet so I dug it up, put it into the handle and channeled some electricity into it. I had an electro-saber. I had my weapon and I had my targets and that's all I needed. so I jumped and used electricity to propel myself up, and shot up towards the ceiling then landed right behind the aliens and hacked off their heads.jessie and julie sat down and tried to catch their breath. I looked over and saw jace and jason on the level above Sam, Sam was in trouble I saw, she was cornered against the wall so I looked at jessie and julie and put an electric feild over them and jumped to the rescue. by the time I had saved everyone but mark and alex I was out of energy. I found them and had just enough energy to save them and get back to sam. so when I did I said to her " I don't know how much longer I can hold out" she looked worried and said " can you last long enough to blow up the generator?" "yeah, I think" we ran down a hall that reminded me of star wars: a new hope.
when we found a map station, sam looked it up and saw that we where right outside of the generator, so I went in there and started sucking energy from the generator any alien that got near me or shot a quill at me got zapped. when I was done I blew out all the computers. I got back out side to find all my freinds unconsious, when I spotted the aliens responsible I killed them then I gave everyone a slight shock to wake them up. a few minutes later we got out of there and found ourselves right in front of a military general,(I turned my electro-saber off) the general yelled " atten-hut" we all lined up from oldest to youngest.
the general walked passed us several times then said "what have you hooligans been up to?"
" we just came out of an underground base" said Jason " maybe we should sit down, before we tell them" said Sam. so we all sat down indian style as we took turns telling what had happened from the past 2 years.
when we were done the general stood up and said "well I guess we gotta get you all outta here, come on get into the helicopter" we climbed into the helicopter and saw nothing more.

Sisters playing Spitball >.<

I came home from Scouts and found WW in a panix, with S freaking out because she had a spitball hit her eyeball.  >.<

Luckily, Alex Pages took over and handled the situation, which I wouldn't have been able to do.


And, another Pivot.

Uh, it's actually on Youtube...

Trying, and failing, to get people up at 8:00.

I woke up at 7:55, and had breakfast.  I went downstaris and asked Mom when we should wake people up.  "They should be up now."  I I went upstairs and pounded on the piano.  I thought it was pretty loud, but they didn't wake up, so I went downstairs and turned the volume way up on the computer and blasted Lux Aeturna.

Didn't work, so Mom woke them up anyway.

My new screen photo icon.

Three posts in one day!

Ah, the power of PAINT.NET

Heh, one more Promo.

I love making these things!

I'm going to make one that is signature sized.

I'm not sure....

I don't know how long I want Invasiion to be.  I guess that an average book is about 300 pages long, but I want Invasiion to be longer.  I guess I'll be as long as the story is.  In other words, if I told a story about a guy walking down the road, the entire story would be told in less than ten pages, but if you're trying to travel from Utah to New York to get onto a bout so that you could go to the Sahara desert, then it could be a pretty long book.


On the other hand, if you packed enough detail into it, a book could be thirty thousand pages long and only cover a few lines of information!

I made a forum for SDLA, and my Brother did most of it.  I'm making all of the tutorials for how to make a siggy and an Avatar.

I made lot's of progress on INVASiiON yesterday.  7 Pages!  It went from 11 pages to 18 1/2!
