Fantasy Friday- Part 2 (except, you know, on Saturday)

(Continued from Part 1

When the new inmate first opened his eyes, he didn't remember where he was. However, the voice he heard just seconds later reminded him. "Anthony Drea? I never thought I'd see you in here," the warden said in a mocking tone. "Welcome to the low security ward. Don't get any ideas, the bars are just as strong as ever. We just need to keep all the guards on the criminals more likely to run, and we both know you wouldn't run. You're already in enough trouble." 
Anthony glared at him. "I don't belong in here and you know that as well as I do, Leo." Being called by his first name by a prisoner was not something he was used to, and he didn't like it one bit.
"Listen, rat. I don't know anything," Leo held one of the cell bars in a death grip and looked Anthony directly in the eye. "You're in here because of what you did, and you deserve every painful memory you'll take from this place."
Without another word, Leo walked away from the cell. Likely to harass someone who's actually intimidated by him, Anthony thought. That idiot is always expecting people to answer to him.
Just then, Anthony heard footsteps coming towards the cell. He was ready to tell Leo to get away from him before he had to MAKE him get away, but it wasn't Leo at all. 
The girl with the yellow scarf he had spoken to the day before his arrest was standing in front of him, smiling as if she had just found buried treasure.

Finally done torturing myself with pudding...Yes, I said pudding.

For anyone who knows me in real life, you already know the horror of PUDDING. For those of you who don't, it's an awful weekly homework assignment created by my history teacher. We have to go through the chapter and outline everything, make a timeline, and write all this other confusing garbage. It isn't very difficult, but it takes an eternity to put together. Luckily I just finished it with enough time to check in with you guys before I'm expected to do that necessary thing called "sleep". 

Under normal circumstances, musical rehearsal would have gone way too late for me to have time to write this, but today it was cut short because one of my friends passed out in between scenes. It was horrible, she was having a hard time breathing and had to be taken to the hospital. I haven't heard any news about her since then. Please pray for her.

Fantasy Friday- Part 1

Well enough of you said you'd be interested in reading the story, so here it is. Enjoy!

Mary leaned against the rough brick wall and tried to ignore what she was hearing. The police were always violent with their arrests, but this time it was much worse. She quickly looked around the corner and immediately regretted it. Of course, the man was resisting arrest. He's innocent, Mary thought. But the police didn't know that. After all, she was the only one who knew he was an innocent man.

She couldn't resist looking again. There were now more police gathered around him. Without a doubt, the man was losing his fight. His hands were tied behind him and the blood from a wound on his face was gleaming in the bright sun. Mary watched as they pulled away- most likely to the prison. She had heard the stories people told about the prison- stories of cold stone, starvation, and screams. Mary knew she couldn't let that happen. The horror of that place would banish the smile from his face forever.

As the last police horse was riding off into the crowd, Mary wrapped her scarf back around her head and ran after them. 

Don't forget to come back next Friday for the next installment!

Offering one way tickets to my imagination!

Every other week in my english class we write short entries to our class journals. Normally we have prompts, but on Fridays we can write whatever we want to write. On the first Friday we did this, I began a story for one of my friends and based the main characters on her and a boy she liked. (I know, it's kinda cheesy) For every Free-Write-Friday we've had thus far I've continued with that story. 

So I was wondering if you all would like to read it. I've seen other bloggers post stories they've written and their followers enjoy it, but do you think you all would? I promise it isn't a cliche story, it's actually (according to my teacher and my friend it was written for) quite good. 

So it's up to you. If you would like to read it, click the love button at the bottom of this post. At least ten of those and this Friday will be the first Fantasy Friday :)
