The Adventures of John Aldor

(0) I was a cold miserable day. Winter had never been more unwelcoming. The only sign of life was a young man. He had dark, curly hair and had a frail, scarred face. He was wearing baggy, torn clothes. He pressed his face on a cold window. "It seems to be sub-zero," he muttered to himself. Although it was strange, it was about to get stranger. John heard a noise. He turned around in shock, and to his horror, there was a down-poor of snow. John Aldor was looking at his doom, or so he thought at the time. A monster of snow came down and engulfed him into nothingness. When almost all hope was lost, he opened his eyes. "This isn't winter," he said in quite an astounded voice. He was right. It was a paradice with amber hills and massive trees. He saw something that made his heart skip a beat. Dragons were grazing on the hills. They were indeed quite friendly.

(1) Over on one side of a lake,was a small boy.He was playing a pipe and watching sheep.When he saw John he said quietly, "Oh,hello there mate!We don't get many of your kind here." John stared at him in wonder.The boy was wearing a tunic of course linen,his face was grubby,and there were deep cuts down his arms and legs.But he seemed perfectly happy.

(2) "What happened to you?" said John,trying to think of something besides the blood. "Oh.Wolf got me.Got me good too.But I can't leave my sheep yet. "I'll watch them for you."said John,so dazed by everything that was happening,he hardly knew what he was saying. (Steven, Age 8 to 12, 2/5/2006 11:23:09 PM, AdventuresofJohnAldor)

(3) The boy's face lightened up. "Really?" he asked. He held out a hand which John shook. "My name is Alan." he said. "John Aldor." Alan ran away. "Where are you going?" called John. But the boy was gone. John picked up the pipe which Alan had dropped and blew it. The ground shook, and as John looked around, he saw a bullman charging at him. (Manuel, Age 8 to 12, 4/9/2006 7:38:02 AM, AdventuresofJohnAldor)

(4) John took a leap over the bullman's head, landind in the soft grass. John looked around and, to his surprise, the bullman had gone. (Manuel, Age 8 to 12, 4/9/2006 8:34:27 AM, AdventuresofJohnAldor)

(5) "Where yee going, John Aldor! The boy is eeeeeeevil! Destroy the pipe! It calls thee deemins from thee earthground! Destroy thy pipe!" John looked around, but there was nobody there! "Deestroy thy pipe!" John put his hands on his ears. "John Aldor, thy pipe must bee deestroyed!" A red human appeared in front of John. He had a forked knife and fangs. "Mee, Satan, commands you to deestroy eet! Thy pipe is eevil!" (Manuel, Age 8 to 12, 5/17/2006 10:39:27 AM, AdventuresofJohnAldor)
