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?


10. Caught

I walk towards the old shack and I heard the sound of a twig snapping, I spun around to see a shadow running through the bushes towards me I turned and ran into the trees hoping to get away from whoever was there. I kept running never looking back always looking ahead, after about 5 minutes of just running I heard a snap and a net sprang up from underneath my feet. Catching me within it I let out a growl of frustration I should’ve been more careful, I hear footsteps approaching oh great here comes the taunting I try looking in the opposite direction so that I can’t be seen but the net swings around to face……Alex?

“Alex?” He quickly ran over to me “Jewel what are you doing here?!” “I could ask you the same question” “this just so happens to be where my group hang out” “well I was looking for the missing animals!” “You shouldn’t have come here” “did you not hear what I said I was looking for the missing animals” “you could have come at a different time” how am I supposed to know when people will be here and when they won’t be!” “I don’t know but you should have known better than to come here I mean didn’t anyone tell you not to go into other people’s camps” “I didn’t think that people were going to camp here so I didn’t to really think about that!”

He reached into his pocket and pulled out a pocket knife my eyes widened I didn’t think that I annoyed him that much he raised it to strike I cringed away and closed my eyes. I heard the sound of the knife hitting but I didn’t feel the pain, I opened my eyes to see Alex hacking at the net “Alex what are you doing?” “What does it look like I’m doing?” I smiled as a hole appeared in the net “now’s your chance be free” “you say it like I’m some kind of animal” “well you live in the forest, you leap around the forest like you own it, you have a connection with the forest and all its animals, the list just goes on.”

 “Thank you for speaking the obvious Mister Obvious” “look are you going to get out and go free or what” “no” “why not?” “Because I need to save the animals and the only way I can do that is to get myself caught and then offer that to your gang.” “Were not a gang and this is crazy why do this just for animals” “I figured that you would know that since your all about the forest” “it’s just a hobby it’s not like I’m obsessed or anything” “your hobby is reading and talking about nature yeah right. Not to mention that you’re in the forest like every day” “so do you” “well I live in the forest so I kinda have to be in the forest every day otherwise I wouldn’t live in the forest.” “You’re a very stubborn person” “so are you!”

“Fine have it your way get caught I don’t care as long as I never have to worry about you again” “what’s that supposed to mean?” “Ah nothing” he then turned on his heel and left leaving me in silence why is it always silence. And why does the silence always occur after he talks to me, I heard footsteps approaching lots of footstep “well, well isn’t it Miss Nature how are we on this fine day?” She giggled one of those girly giggles and noticed the pocket knife on the ground, “and what’s this a pocket knife now let’s see who’s pocket knife this is.” “You don’t need to look it’s obviously mine” “oh really then why does this have Alex’s name on it?”

 She showed me the knife idiot Alex had actually put his name on it wow how dumb can you get. “Alex explain this” she said throwing him the knife he caught t and looked at the name “how did you know?” “Well you run back about 10 minutes after you left saying that we caught the girl after leaving for something that should have taken you 1 minute.” “That doesn’t really explain much I could have been coming back then heard the trap go off and ran to it I mean how could you possibly say that……” “We heard you two arguing” she interrupted “oh that would explain it” “you two were having a pretty interesting argument I mean it went from freeing you to Alex calling you an animal to who spends more time in the forest.” “Shut up Eric” “somebody’s on edge.”

The girl turned to me “so you know Alex and now Eric let me introduce you to the rest of the group there’s Aurora” she pointed to a girl with brown hair and blue eyes the same colour as hers. “There’s Eleonora” she pointed again this time to a girl with blond hair and brown eyes what is with these girls and having the same colour hair and eyes as Alex’s girlfriend. “Dawn” finally someone that looks nothing like her “Chase” I looked at Chase one word sprang to mind when I saw him jock.

 “As you already know this is Eric” she smiled and batted her eyelashes at him, Eric smiled a prince charming flirty smile at me and made a clicking sound with his mouth. “Walter” as soon as I heard that name I thought butler or servant I don’t know why, “Jacob” another jock “Luke” he smiled and his cheeks went a bright red ahhh cute! “Kyle” she indicated to a guy with lots of big muscles of course there would be a guy like that, “Alex” she said this with an irritated not him again voice “and last of all me I’m Quinn.” She said reaching out her hand all smiles I could tell instantly that this was a fake personality I read about girls that try and use this on people to trick them into believing that there nice. I took her hand and shook it “Jewel” I said “Jewel Vickery” “nice to meet you Jewel” she said pulling me out of the net. I looked at her, her blue eyes sparkled just like the morning sky and her blonde hair seemed to glow wait isn’t that bad for you.

 “Now Jewel tell me where are the gems?” I knew that, that was coming I mean isn’t it obvious I don’t know where the gems are if there are even any gems but I just the place “right this way” I replied all smiled just like Quinn “good girl I was worried that we would have to make you don’t it the hard way, that wouldn’t be nice at all.” She’s talking to me like I’m a little kid “you do know that I’m 14 right” “no I didn’t know that” she’s still talking to me like that it must be a part of her sweet and innocent act.  

“You don’t have to talk to me like that you can use your normal voice” “and how would you know what my normal voice sounds like?” “Because I heard you use it that day with the forest tour group” “and why may I ask were you there?” “I was there because I like watching the people walk through the forest admiring its beauty and grace, and also because I was angry at you because you hurt an animal I threw pinecones at you.” Her smile disappeared “you were watching us” “yeah I’m always watching people particularly people like you” I think that I’m starting to scare them. Well if they get scared and leave then it would be less for me to worry about yay! “Ok creepy forest girl go up there” she pushed me towards the front “and lead the way” “ok” I took the lead and started heading down the path out of here.

We had been walking for about 5 hours this group is determined to get there I figured that we would have stopped and had an argument by now. People always argue in situation where they’re going to get rich, so this group is probably going to argue quite a lot, but then again the books have been wrong before I mean they were wrong about Alex or maybe that's just what he wants me to believe I am really starting to test my knowledge.
