Royal Baby: George Alexander Louis

Everywhere I go, I hear something about 'A Royal Baby' For a while I had NO idea of what everyone was talking about. Literally. Why? Well because not many people in my family were talking about it and normally I hear stuff from them. Anyway... Just recently, Kate Middleton and Prince William have had there first child. A baby boy. They have also just revealed the Princes name. George Alexander Louis. 

Holiday Highlight: Part 1

So the holidays are about to end and to be honest, I wasn't very impressed with what I did really, ( Except for one little thing that happened ) Nothing much happened the first week, just a little trip to the mall. As for the second, I went............

SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING! Once again I got to enjoy the snow on Mt Ruapehu. But this time I got to get a look at the Turoa Ski Field. We were staying with a few friends at a house 20 minutes away from the snow! It was pretty cool and there were some beautiful views. 

On the second day, I was woken up by an earthquake! I was pretty surprised being it was the first earthquake I have ever felt! Two other people had been woken up by it too. So I went and sat with them. Anyway, back to the snow. Today we were going up the mountain, but first we hired our gears. Along with everyone else, except for Zane, I got skis. 

Soon we drove up to the mountain and when we reached the fourth parking spot we were above the clouds. There was an amazing view! In front of me there was a long line of clouds and just above them was the sun. After staring at it for a while we finally caught the shuttle to the Skiing and Snowboarding area. 

Straight away, I got on my gears and skied down the mountain. After a while I decided to try and get Gabi to do it and in the end she did! It was really fun and I bet it was a great experience for my cousin. Since he has never ever touched snow. Getting closer and closer to the Magic Carpet I slowed down and joined the line. I hadn't been on the Magic Carpet in a while now. It felt good to be back!

Little Red with a twist...

“Little Red? Little Red?” I heard my name echoing throughout the forest. Making my way over to a tall oak tree, I spotted a thin slit cutting through the bark. I ran my fingertips along the slit, when suddenly a golden reddish autumn leaf slowly floated down beside me. Instantly, I snatched it from the air. I pulled out my pen and wrote down a series of numbers across the leaf. Checking it twice, I slipped it into the slit on the tree.

Splitting open, the tree revealed a passage way. You’d think that nothing but wood and oak would be in a tree but surprisingly I found that the inside was lined with metal. There in front of me was a ladder leading downwards. Clutching on to the ladder I made my way down. I heard the tree door slamming shut and nothing but darkness filled the air.

Just as I reach the bottom of the ladder, once again I hear my name. “Little Red, we’ve been expecting you”, “Sorry, I’m late Director M. What do you want me to do now?” I asked unwillingly. “Well, we have recent reports that Wolves Incorporated have sent their best agent, BBW the Big Bad Wolf on a killing spree, so I said to myself, why don’t we send our best agent to do the job.” “UGH! Really? Fine, where was he last spotted?”.

Director M hands me a file containing all the information I needed to catch BBW. I take it, grab my red cloak and hood and head off. “Good Luck” says Director M. “Not gonna need it” I say while grabbing my gadgets.

Creeping through the woods, I see wolf prints in the grass and claw marks scratched against every tree. I follow the trees and find myself standing in front of my granny’s little old cottage. Out of nowhere, it started to pour rain, the clouds were dark and grey, the raindrops were like sharp daggers piercing through my back.

I walk up to the red door, the red paint was clearly peeling off. Mold and weeds were growing through the cracks. KNOCK! KNOCK! I knock on the door. “Huh” I chuckle. It had been a long time since I’ve been there. 5 years ago, I was visiting her when the big bad wolf nearly ate her alive, luckily I was there to save her..  

KNOCK! KNOCK! Once again, I knock but it’s practically pounding now. Still no answer. In my frustration, I kick down the door. The unbelievable sight startled me, there in front of me on his knees was the wolf feasting upon my granny’s limp lifeless body.

His claws were sharp like knives. Slowly walking up behind him, his long ears twitched. Immediately, his head creeks towards to me. Growling at my presence, he opens his mouth and blood drops from each one of his teeth. I whip my cloak off and reveal all my guns. In my hand I held two guns pointing directly at him.

“I’ll shoot and I’ll shoot and I’ll blow your head off” I scream. Bullets started seeking through his huge body. “Grrrrr” he growls lying on his back. He jumps back on his feet and jumps on me, making me drop my guns. Using his claws, he attempted to slit my throat but I held his claws from reaching me. Stretching my arm, I reach for my gun. Struggling to hold the wolf and get the gun at the same time, the wolf managed to scratch my face..
