The Forest Jewel

Jewel is a nature girl always has and always will be, she has spent her whole life in the forest surrounded by nature. Even when her parents and her unborn brother died in an accident that occurred deep in the forest. An accident that no one knew about or so she thought it actually turns out that there bodies were found and she had left people wondering what had happened to her and how she survived. She finally discovers all this after meeting Alex in the forest she doesn't realise it but he is the key to discovering her true self and what will happen when Alex suddenly tells all his friends about a power that she doesn't even have. Why is Alex here? Why did he lie to all his friends about Jewel's power? and why is Alex so annoying?


3. Alex

One boy in particular caught my eye he had red hair and green eyes, he looked like he was about my age I noticed that he wasn’t anywhere near anyone else he was at the very back of the group and was walking very slowly. The rest of the group was moving on ahead and then they were gone, gone through the bushes and to the other side not realising that they’ve left someone behind, he looked up to see where they were but when he sure that there was no one around I saw a smile creep across his face.

He stopped walking and he turned to the tree that I was in and he spoke “I know you’re up there you can come down I’m not going to hurt you” his voice was calm and filled with compassion, I slid down the tree “there you see I’m not going to hurt you, there’s being some rumours going around saying that your still alive and living here, what’s your name?” “Jewel” “Jewel that’s a really nice name I’m Alex it’s a pleasure to meet you.” “What are you doing here?” I came here to find you and figure out how you survived that sink hole and how you’re living here in the forest all alone with no one to look after you and care for you.”

“I wasn’t in the sink hole with the rest of my family if that’s what you’re asking, I was beside it watching my parents as they sank into the earth and I didn’t call for help because I knew that no one could help them, I just left and pretended that I had died in the sink hole with the rest of my family.” He looked at me with a shocked expression on his face, “no you can’t have that’s what the stories have been saying well a lot of them say that your dead, but the ones that say that your alive say that you were in the sink hole and you managed to fight your way out you tried to save you family but you couldn’t you were to helpless. That’s what they say not that she left her family behind in the hole without even calling for help that’s defiantly not the girl I’ve read about.” “How do people write a book about me if they don’t even know who I am?” I replied in an obvious tone. “That’s not the point the point is that you are a coward and you betrayed your own family” “I’m not a coward I was just doing what I thought was right” “well what you thought was right was an act of cowardice” I’m starting to get annoyed with this kid and I mean really annoyed.

“I was five, FIVE I didn’t know any better everything I learnt was from my parents and they taught me do everything that they say so if my parents were to yell out, Jewel go and get the camera I would. If they yelled Jewel go out and explore I would, so when they yelled Jewel get away from here don’t tell anyone what’s happened pretend that your dead if you have to just go I would.” “Your parents told you to go and leave them behind” “yeah” “why would they say something like that, your parents weren’t the type of people that just gave up they would have tried to get out they would have asked for your help they would have……”

 “I was five I couldn’t do anything without being sucked in myself I wasn’t th

at strong” “so what you should have at least tried I mean for once couldn’t you not listen to your parents I mean you didn’t have to obey them in a time like that.” Will you SHUT UP!!” he looked at me as if shocked by my sudden outburst “your voice is driving me insane and will you stop with the whole you should of, you could of crap its annoying ok, that was 9 years ago what’s done is done!!” “But…” “No buts!!” “I…” That’s it I’ve had it with him, “go away” “what?” “GO AWAY!! Leave before I kill you!” He looked at me and opened his mouth to say something but he mustn’t seen the look in my eyes because his face turned to a hurt look and then he turned and ran in the direction of the group.
