The Gem

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


8. Reunited

          "Dad!" I say, "Oh my goodness, I can't beleive it." At that moment something hits me. I feel around for it and I catch it. It's my rifle! I feel the emerald still in it's place.

          "Dad, do you know anything about my emerald and why I have it now?"

          "It will always come back to its owner," My dad says.

          "Give him food at 11:00 when he's asleep." I hear from the Gaza soldiers.

          "Dad, at 11:00 they are going to open our cells to give us food. When they open our cells we will fend 'em off and we'll be out. We have to pretend to be sleeping."

           At 11:000 my heart is pounding when I hear the footsteps coming down the hall. I grasp my rifle. My cell door creaks open and I spring into action taking down the soldier opening both our cells. I grab the key for dad's cell and we're free. I hand dad the soldier's rifle and we both take a dagger.

          We move swiftly up the steps taking out the two guards guarding the dungeon. We don't get cocky yet because we still have to take out all of the soldiers in the building and Amir. We hide behind whatever we can find and take out all of the guards in the halls. We move to the throne room. There are guards everywhere in there and there is no way we could even touch Amir.

          A guard comes running out of the room and we easily kill him. Everybody in the room hears the gun shot and now everybody comes flooding into the halls. Dad and I stand back to back fending off soldiers, one by one they go down until it is only us two and Amir.

           My rifle and my dad's rifle were lost in the battle so now it's me and my dad with two daggers versus Amir with an extra long shiny sword.

           Amir comes charging and strikes just to the left of us. My dad trips him and he falls straight on his face. He quickly gets back to his feet and targets my dad. I get Amir's back to me and I stab in the back with my dagger. "Dad, watch out!" I scream and my dad runs. Amir strikes my dad with his sword in his leg before he collapses to the ground.
