The Gem

A thrilling adventure story about an Israeli soldier who goes on an action-packed quest.


1. The Perfect Pair

          "Run, Jacob," my dad called. So I did, I only looked back to see my dad being taken down by the soldiers. Surely, he was dead. I couldn't go back only keep on fighting. I fend off many soldiers in anger with my dagger. I never stop running, "I will run away," I said out loud even though nobody could here me over all of this mess. I can't run away, I have to fight to avenge my dad.

          I run straight into the fighting, taking out my gun. I take many soldiers down. I find a car and hide behind it. I look out over the streets of Israel with fires all over and constant explosions. "Why," I thought, " Why did this ever have to happen?" I see many of my peers lying dead on the streets. A few miles back, my dad is lying, dead, just like all of these guys. We always fought side by side and we were great. Now, I am just another lonesome soldier, waiting to be killed by the great forces of Gaza.

          Of course, I wouldn't give up and just hand my body to the Gaza forces, but without my dad I am really not a force to be reckoned with. I look around and find something shiny. I pick it up and examine it. I fiddle around with it for a while and then I put it in my pocket. It king of looked like a jewel. I find a soldier coming up to me with his rifle. I press my body against the car which is now my only shield between the soldier and me. He comes around the car and strikes me with the barrel of his gun. I try to shake off the blow and randomly push the trigger.

          I hear a yelp of pain and just before I am engulfed in black I feel a body collapse around my feet.
