I recently had the pleasure of talking to a group of teens at Arms Around ASD, a local office that supports people on the spectrum and their families, and we explored the basics of writing, including character traits and details. One young man was very excited about his piece, and I offered to share it with the world, in keeping with the season. Enjoy!
There once lived a wicked witch who did not like the heroes of the pacific side of the world. So she casted a spell on a jack o lantern who she named Minzie and brought it to life. It grew a body of vines and was ready to kill what was on schedule. There was Luke, a Rich Pagan Wizard from Saipan who has triplets. There was Logan, a Buddhist from Guam, who helps people and hunts pigs to make food for the community, with his rich wife Lauren. There was Marky, an Orthodox Jewish detective from Christmas Island and Leia a Buddhist from Japan who knows ninjitsu. Moving on, we are starting with Luke in this story.
Part 1. Luke the Wizard
Luke was potty training his triplets when suddenly his wife Helena pops in.
“Luke, you are the hero of Saipan. Can’t you grant me good luck at work today because I’m afraid I’m going to fail at a project going on and get fired.”
“Aw sweetheart I can grant you that.”
“Thanks so much, Luke!” said Helena.
When potty training was done, he took his triplets outside to play and then three hours later it was time for a bath and then bedtime. When it was bedtime he went to sit at the bar in his mansion and that’s when Minzie came and killed him by sending wines through his chest and his abdomen and them Minzie ate his head and heart.
The very next day, Helena came in and she screamed loudly and held a funeral with the triplets and his family.
Part 2. Marky the Inspector
Marky was at somebody’s house dealing with a missing puppy, which he found an hour later. After that he went home and watched Benny Hill. During Benny Hill he received a call from his childhood friend Logan on Guam.
“Hey Marky! How does work go for you on Christmas Island>?” said Logan.
“It goes fine. I’m a detective and found a puppy today.”
“Neat!” said Logan.
Then suddenly Minzie appeared outside Marky’s house. Marky said, “Hang on I gotta go.”
So he walked outside and got his head eaten by Minzie.
Part 3. Leia the Ninja
Leia was at her dojo training with her sensei Kyubo and she went home with her stepdad. Her stepdad even told her that she is the hero of Japan, but there is a monster on the loose so she needs to stay inside where it is safe.
Minzie soon appeared and vined out her heart and ate it.
There was later a funeral at a crematorium.
Part 4. Logan the pig hunter
Logan and his rich wife Lauren were out hunting pigs for bacon on Guam, to have a meat sale to benefit the community.
But when Minzie arrived to get him, the military had tracked the pumpkin, and had it surrounded and blew up Minzie with a missile. The danger was over but everyone who died was always remembered as a hero.
