My family is taking a 2 week cruise to deserted island to have explore for a little bit we are already 6 days in. We won this cruise while we where at a pool party so we signed up and won so we are here along with about 45 others. “hey Skyler do you know where my swim suit is ?.. Wait found it” my little brother Connor says. He is 8. He is super annoying. I’m 4 years older so I have a hard time playing with him because all he ever wants to do is play fortnight. “wait I found it “he says and go back in to the cabin grab my phone and check the Time.“uh mom should we go to bed its 9:30. “yes “I go grab my brother about to dive into the pool and say “its time for bed.” He gives an angry face and dives in anyway. I yell at him he them goes to sleep ,so do I. “honk honk” I hear as I wake up I spring up out of bed and say “where here!” I get into my swim suit and dive of the boat and swim the 3 feet to the island. Layla doggie padres after me. The captain announces.“ meet backer in 10 hours.” So Layla and I go exploring through caves the beach and we even find a coconut and I give her some of the water because she was thirsty. I get on to my phone (its still wet) I play my music and I wander around .later I check my phone a notice that it has been 11 hours! I run back to the beach and the boat is gone! I run to Layla ands jumps into my arms knowing that I’m sad. But I know that my mom and dad would want me to stay calm build a campfire a stay the night until some one finds me. so I Did. I also went fishing for some food I ought some fish and killed them with items I found on the beach. Then I realize that I have my phone and I can try calling for help. Bu very time I try it cant come through because it is a deserted island. I have been here for 6 days in one more day may family will realize I’m still on this stupid island .many days have passed and I haven’t been found and I’m living of f of fish and coconuts. I have been stuck here for 10 days and my parents haven’t found me and I feel unwanted ,lost ,and just lonely I start 8th grade soon and it feels like my parents only care about my brother. That night I see lights approaching and I think it’s my parents but it’s not but the people return me sadly to them and Layla of corse. when I get home we have a big feast and Layla ate a coconut.

Once upon a time there was fairy village. In that Fairy village there was a fairy. Her name was Violet. She had a younger sister, brother, Mom and Dad. Violets brothers name was Will her sisters was Lia her moms was Hana and her dads was Tim. She started school when she was 4 years old. When she was in 2nd Grade she met Lana.

Violet was 7 and Lana was 9.  “Lana’s  going to Candyland” said her mother.” “cool”!!!!!!!!! said violet.  “Can I go too”?, asked violet. ”No fair”said violet’s brother and sister.  “I’ll ask” said their mother.

“Are they going today”? Asked violet. ”Yes” said their mom. ”We better get packing”said violet  “ i’ll  make  a   list”   ”okay we need”(a tent, water and snacks) said Violet go in the car now that we are done packing said her mom.  Let me search the Directions said there mom okay were on are way said there mom. How many hours till we get there asked violet. In 2 hours. When they got there they saw 3 gummy bear deers. Violets brother said  “can I pet one”? Violet said “NO Will there wild animals”. “Everyone get down we are there “said there mom.Violets mom called lana’s mom.”lana and her family are a little further ahead so everyone hop back in”. And violets mom drove a little bit further.And about 20 to 30 min they saw lana and her family there was 4 people in Lana’s family.There was her,her brother,her mom,and dad.They had already set up camp.Violets family all ran out to meet their friends.Lana’s mom said “Hi hana how are you doing?”.”We are doing good how are you?”Said Violets mom.”We are also good”.said Lana’s mom.After a few Min.They set up camp. Then when the grownups started to cook Lana and Violet decided to explore the woods.And so they started by the west part of the woods and when they got a little bit in Lana said.”Maybe we should go back I don’t like the looks of this place and so they started to walk back but they couldn’t find the way back.Lana said “Oh wait I might have my IPhone still.Oh no it’s not there maybe I dropped it oh there it is.”When they saw her iphone and Lana quickly picked it up but the problem was that it didn’t have internet.

“Just great” said lana.”Oh wait I might still have a compose”. And so Violet looked in her pocket and found her compest.She held it in front of her and saw that they were in the north.”How are we in the north and we started  in the west”, asked Lana.  Luckily they had brought sleeping bags so they decided to camp there for the night.  In the morning the first sound they heard was “Are you awake”?  When they opened their  eyes they saw a person and she said “Are you awake?”  ”Who are you” said Lana. “I am Cordelia I am a candy fairy.  Do you need some help?”  ”Oh we’re fine.  But there’s one thing you could help us with – we need you to help us get back our families,”  said Lana.  “Oh sure.  Follow me.  But on one condition.  Which part of the forest are they in? ” said Cordelia.  “Oh I know they’re in the West”, said Lana.  ”Okay follow me”  said Cordelia.  And so they followed her.  In pobaly 10 to twenty min. They were there.” THanks so much”. Said Violet and Lana together “No problem”.Said Cordelia.”Hey why not have lunch with us you’re also hungry probably.” “Sure”.
