The World Below...

Kirstie ( pronounced Kir-s-ty) moves to a small, quiet town in Virginia. At school, the subject sticking to her mind like glue, was History. She was told the Legend of the town, that underneath the surface of the earth, below them, a whole world full of mythical creatures, ivolved.
But when Kirstie goes to explore, she finds out that the story isn't a Legend, it's true...
So Kirstie explores the wonders of this world, every nook, and every cranny.
She meets all kinds of creatures, their powers, their fears, everything. But when Kirstie's back in the Human world, things are different. She'd been reported Missing. It had actually been monthes that she'd disapeared for.
Now, her life is different. Should she tell the truth, and risk the Creatures lives? Or should she lie, and hope that it was believeable?

6. Chapter 6

We began our long trek in the World Under.

" So, um, Kerstie, whats in that backpack of yours? I would really love to see actually things from the Human World!" she asked, touching the zip.

" Oh, I have food, a hairbrush, a gameboy thingy, you know, things that'll keep me entertained. We can settle down in a few miles, if you want? Then I can show you, if that's okay?"

" Oh, it'd be Zoompa!"

"Does that mean super, in, your language?"

"Uh...yes! Wow, your getting good at our language! You must feel like an alien here, that must be Zoompa strange!"

"Ha, yeah. I guess. Wow, I never really notcied how...-"

I tripped on a strange shaped rock, with a pointy point at the top.

"Oh, are you okay? Oooh, I should have warned you, I'm sorry!"

" No, it's okay" I said, getting up and dusting myself down.

She laughed a tiny bit, before she suddenly disapered.

" Mable? Mable!"

"It's okay" she spoke, her voice coming from thin air.

" Where are you?"

" Oh, this air, it's starting to make me feel a little ill. When I feel ill, I, uh, dipire"

"Disappear?"

"Uh huh".

I walked on slowly, waiting for her to say something.

I felt kind of strage in this world.

It would be ages before I got back.

And where was I going to say I went?

I couldn't say I was kiddnapped, they'd look for a made up person.

I couldn't say I was here, I would end up in some mental home for The Young.

" What's wrong, Kerstie? Your looking... I don't know what to say. Your looking deppressed?"

"That's a little too extreme. No, I feel a little upset. What am I going to say when I get back home? I'm going to have to say something believable. I mean, I will have been gone for monthes, as you say. I'm going to have to make somethig up. I can't say I ran away..."

" Why not, that sounds pretty believable"

" Actually, your right. I could say I took all my pocket money, because, I have a least a hundered, from my Birthday. Thanks Mable, where ever you are" I spoke, a smile creeping onto my face.

 

Suddenly, the world around me began to get darker then it already was.

" Mable, what's going on? What are happening too all the lights around us? There going out!"

" Don't panic. It means that it getting late. Real late. We might have to rest, Kerstie. Over here will do" Mable spoke.

"Mable, I think you've forgotten something. I can't see you"

" Oh yeah. Okay, by the tree with the final light. Quick, get to it while the lights still there".

I ran over to the tree, and placed my rucksack down beside the trunk.

The grass where I was sitting, was soft, and delicate.

It didn't itch, it felt sweet.

Much better to the path we were walking on.

The path was rocky, and a light brown, and it didn't look to appealing.

The tree looked similar to a Willow tree.

But, the thing about this tree, was that it had tiny lights encruseted in all of the leaves.

They lite a very pale, light yellow.

The sky above me was a deep crimson, with a hint of Purple.

It was such a pretty place.

" I dont know why you get bored of this place, Mable".

At that point, a light beside me flashed a fiery orange, and Mable was sitting close beside me.

" Who said I did? I like it here, but I would like to get out and see the Human World" she explained, shutting her eyes.

" Mable, I thought you couldn't".

" Yeah I can't, but I still wanna see it".

" Okay, well, goodnight, Mable".

"Good night, Kerstie".
