You Are Kidding Me!

I'm sure you'd hyperventilate if you found that you're jumping from an only child to the brother of three siblings. Make the three new arrivals a tomboy, the new favourite in the family and the girl-you-fall-for-who-hates-you-at-first-sight, and you have the makings of a nightmare. Alas for Nathaniel K. Smith, its a living one.
Despite his usual tenacity, determination and way too vivid imagination, this is certainly beyond his wildest dreams. With his reputation on the line, will he be able to keep the terrifying additions to his family a secret?
Jeer, cheer, laugh or aww in this way too cheesy reminder that coincidences are never coincidences, love is never easy and not to ever wish life was less boring...


4. Chapter 3

Nathaniel's pov

A zombie looms ahead of me. I shoot it with arrows, but it seems to continue to plod along steadily towards me. I run out of ammunition and make a run for it. Alas, a skeleton gets in my way... I scream and frantically look for a way out. Amid burning trees and lava, there seems to be no escape.

The terrifying bone structure gets in my face, and its game over.

I slump against the keyboard and sigh. Two hours and I'm nowhere near George's record time for surviving on minecraft hardcore.

"Watcha doing?" Crystal walks up to me with a bowl of chips. Aha. She's discovered my kryptonite- chips.

Gloomily I tell her my situation and her face lights up.

"I LOVE minecraft!" she begins gushing. "Survival is cool but I prefer Creative because you can do anything!"

"Yeah..." I say sceptically. I'm sure she uses it to build pathetic cottages and girly castles, and she's only ever tried is Peaceful mode.

'Don't judge my sister, Nathaniel," Elizabeth says as she walks by, face buried in a book. Typical.

She's played Hardcore for about 5 months now without dying once."

I look at Crystal flabbergasted as I 'die' once more.

"Teach me. Please."

"Only if you call me master of minecraft."

I put on my best persuasive voice and say, "Please, master of minecraft, please teach me your fantastic skills!"

Elizabeth snorts and Crystal flashes a smile as she lifts her camera from her pocket. "Awesome, all recorded." She and Elizabeth high five while I face palm.

We get straight to business, and within half an hour I have uncovered several gems on stratagems in surviving and killing.

We spend the last thirty minutes pleasantly looking at her impressive minecraft creations. While I ooh and ahh over a particularly impressive floating island she built, she suddenly asks, "Do you like my sister?" On my guard, I reply, "Yup, she's a good friend when we're not arguing."

"Not what I meant and you know it," she turns to face me and I gulp as I spot a determined look on her face.

I sigh. I can't believe someone two years younger than me is playing matchmaker for me.

"I'm sorry, Chris, but even if there's anything between your sister and I, I don't think we want your interference."

Her face lights up. "So you two do like each other!" She squeals. Then she finally shuts up about it and manipulates the keyboard expertly to show me a new feature of her island.

We part with a promise to play together the next time.
