To My Mom Rani
It's a special bond that spans the years,
through laughter, worry, smiles and tears,
A sense of trust that can't be broken,
A depth a love so strong sometimes not spoken,
A lifelong friendship built on sharing,
Hugs and kisses, warmth and caring,
Mother and daughter, hearts as one,
A link that can never be undone...
We love you!!

The Troll Bros
Once upon a time there was a wonderful, green meadow in a far away land. Three nice little troll brothers lived there and grew vegetables in the fertile soil for their families and friends. They called themselves the Troll Bros, Bail, Bale and Knox.
The troll brothers worked hard each day tilling, planting,watering, and weeding. They grew the biggest, most delicious vegetables in the land. Bail grew juicy, purple turnips that grew to the size of softballs, Bale grew dark red potatoes that dripped with delicious flavor and Knox grew cabbages that were as green as could be.
The Troll Bros were quite happy tending their gardens and sharing with others. They lived simple, quiet lives. However, it was no secret that they were probably the best farmers in all the land.
One day, a message came from the king. The Troll Bros had been selected to grow vegetables for the king’s vegetable growing contest. Of course, they were delighted to hear the news and they thought they just might have a good chance of winning.
They had one huge problem, though. Their garden soil had been used so much it was low on nutrients and they didn't have good soil to grow their plants. They knew they must devise a plan as fast as possible.
The Troll Bros put their heads together and thought and thought and thought. All of a sudden, an idea came to all three at once. They knew about the rich land that lay on the other side of the Forbidden Bridge, but a mean goat named Beast, a conceited goat, who lived in a hideaway hut under the bridge.
Beast was a very particular goat and he did not allow anyone to cross over his bridge. Partly because he was selfish but mostly because he just loved taking huge bites of any poor creature’s body, no matter when it would step one foot onto his bridge. He would snap down and the poor creature would yell for mercy, jumping around like crazy, begging for the old goat to let it loose. Beast would almost laughed himself sick watching the creature run away in the opposite direction crying for its mommy.
Now, Beast was certainly aware of the three Troll Bros. He was also very jealous of them because he hadn’t been invited to participate in the king’s contest. He decided he would wait and see if the Troll Bros would try and cross his bridge, having heard about their soil dilemma. If they had the nerve to even try, he’d be more than ready for them.
Since the trolls were brothers, one young, one old, and one in the middle, they decided to send the youngest one over the bridge first. Hopefully, Beast would wait for the other two brothers and allow the youngest brother to pass without a problem, so after the youngest troll passed over, he would immediately begin a garden where vegetables could be grown for the contest.
Off Bail went,in a carefree manner. Sure enough, up charged Beast, yelling so loudly the youngest troll bro froze in his tracks.
“Oh, Littlest Troll Bro, where would you suppose you might be going?” asked Beast in an angry, gruff voice.
“Ugh,”stammered Bail, “please, I need to cross your bridge, Mr. Beast. Please let me cross and I can assure you I have two older brothers coming later. They’re much bigger and if you can wait for them, think about how much juicier a chunk out of them would taste compared to my skinny little body,” Bail stuttered.
The large goat thought about it and knew the little troll had a point. Miraculously, the goat allowed the youngest troll bro to pass over his bridge.
“After all,” Wiley B. thought to himself. “What do I have to lose? Two juicier behinds will follow.” He quietly snickered, his teeth showing. Little did Beast know that he had been tricked for the first time.
When the two remaining trolls knew the youngest had made it over the bridge safely. Bale decided it was time for him to try his luck in outwitting the vain goat. As softly as he could, the middle troll began stepping across the bridge, using very careful steps. He was about one fourth of the way across when Beast popped his head over the edge of the bridge.
“And, just who is tiptoeing across my bridge this time?” snarled Beast, chomping down on his sharp teeth and showing his dripping tongue.
Bale decided on a quick reply.
“Uh, Mr. Beast, Sir, I’m sure you know by now, right? I am supposed to cross over your bridge so you can chomp down on my older brother’s body. I can assure you, it is much bigger and juicier than mine. Ooh, look up at that bird in the sky,” Bale yelled, making fast tracks. “See ya later!” Bale raced away, leaving his words behind him.
And, Beast stamped his hooves in a fit of anger, having been outwitted a second time.
Now, Beast didn’t take kindly to Bale making him look like a fool by getting to cross his bridge. However, he was quite sure he would make up for it when the biggest troll tried his luck to pass over. Beast would be ready for him and would make up for his losses, and big time at that.
The oldest troll bro waited for a while, making sure Bale had successfully passed over the forbidden bridge. Loaded down with a bag of fertilizer, seed bags, and work tools, it was time for him to begin his journey. He trudged toward the bridge, expecting to see the goat at any minute.
After Knox had taken only a few steps on the bridge, Beast appeared. By this time, the goat wasready. He flew to the top of the bridge and plopped himself down, smack-dab in the center and waited for the oldest troll to try and continue his journey. The old goat stood there, stamping his hooves. He growled up at Knox, showing his teeth with his tongue dripping. Smoke arose from his ears because he was so mad, aiming that he wouldn’t be tricked again.
Knox had to think of something really fast or he knew he’d be torn apart, never to join his brothers on the other side. He had an idea and hopefully the willy goat would fall for it.
“Oh, Beast, Sir, may I say that you smell exactly like a vase full of lilacs on this beautiful day,” Knox said.
Beast was shocked and immediately started sniffing the air, speaking aloud to himself, his tongue hanging out.
“Well, I guess I do smell a little bit like lilacs at that.”
Seeing that the trick was working, Knox continued. “And, your teeth, Mr. Beast, Sir, which you are showing so well, look like shining white stars, surely as bright as diamonds.”
Baffled, the goat grunted, blurting out all kinds of sounds.
“Well I can’t see them, now can I?”
“Oh, well, perhaps you could check them in your mirror inside your hut,Mr. Beast. Go on and see for yourself,” Knox replied.
Beast was so vain he raced to his hut to peer at himself in his mirror to see if his teeth really were white and shining as bright as diamonds.
Little did the old goat know that he’d been outwitted for a third time.
Knox finished crossing the bridge to join his two brothers. There, the Troll Bros started new fields for the king’s vegetable contest.
There’s no telling how beautiful their new vegetables will grow in the lush fields of the land across the Forbidden Bridge. As forBeast, he now walks around all day long with a mirror tied to his collar. That way, he can constantly admire his sparkling, white teeth. Each day, he sniffs the air surrounding him, believing he smells like a bouquet of lilacs. And, he allows the Troll Bros to pass whenever they want. Of course, now, all three of them continue to flatter Sir Beast on the way back and forth across the bridge.
Sometimes flattery works and don’t be vain.

It was a warm sunny day and I was just reaching the park to play hide and seek. As I ran to find a hiding spot I noticed a map near a tree! Curious I went up to the map and suddenly it sucked me up. Ahh! I closed my eyes and when I came to I realized that I was in a different world. It was…pink up, pink down, pink left, pink right, pink everywhere! Then I spotted a banner (pink of course) which said “Welcome to Magic Land "Magic land I thought “I think it should be called Pink Land. Right after I finished my thought two sweet, cute little critters greeted me. One was a puppy and the other was a kitty. Yeesh hope they get along. But then I was shocked, shocked to hear them speak! Not the speak like woof, woof, meow, meow but speak like English!
I pinched myself to make sure that I wasn’t dreaming. I it was the real deal! I ran around in circles screaming but when I was running the kitty giggled and the puppy giggled then the kitty laughed and the puppy laughed finally the kitty sent a laughing tornado and the puppy let out a laughing tornado. It was like thy were laughing their heart of. The finally stopped 2 hours 45 minutes later. I counted. Finally they spoke to me. Their names where Knittle and Poppy. They said that this land was in grave danger from the king of Dead Land plus the king is a big mean red fire breathing dragon. They also mentioned that only people not animals can destroy Dead Land. Everyone looked at me even the trees! Creepy! “What”? I asked. “Well, Poppy said you are a human aren’t you?”
I gulped then without control I ran as fast as my little legs could go to the …sea! I fell in the sea almost drowning then (my hero) a ship rescued me and talked to me to! I thought it was a bad dream so I fainted. When I came to I saw myself in the ships living room. Wow! It was full of beautiful crystal! Suddenly while I was relaxing watching TV the door opened and Poppy and Knitle came out. Not them again. After the moment of silence. The ship spoke. He said something about a crystal pearl attacked by Dead Land. Oh! That’s what Knitle was talking about plus he said that he had a treasure room for me to go into and protect the crystal pearl. After that my face light up like the sun. A treasure room? I raced like a cheetah to the treasure. Wow! The treasure room was …well full of treasure! Then I saw the crystal pearl glimmering in the middle like a center piece I was so distracted by it I didn’t notice some ghosts coming through the walls. Suddenly in a blink of a eye the ghosts barged through stole the crystal pearl and also making me topple over. I was so startled I let out a scream. Alarmed Poppy and Knitle raced to the door and a certain ghosts with red hair formed a purple ball that hit…Poppy! No! Uh oh I think ghosts can hear thoughts and came running toward me!When I was almost going to faint until an invisible force field knocked him out and a portal sucked all the ghosts up and I swear I heard a grrrrr.
After the whole commotion was over Knitle started crying I felt bad for her. It seems that the ship was in vacation and just came back. What happened he cried Knitle explained everything? She told how I scream and when they came Poppy got hit and the crystal pearl got stolen. After that sentence the ship went crazy and….shot a spell on us! The shot knocked Knitle and I out. When I came to w- we w-w where i-in D-D-D-Dead L-L-L-Land! I ran in circles faster than when I met Poppy and Knitle. Of course Knitle giggled but then there was silence and Knitle became sad, sad, sad! I broke the silence why are we here I stammered. Knitle thought for a while along a long while then a real light bulb was on her head. I think she has an idea.” Maybe, she said, maybe that spell that the ship cast brought us to dead land”. Okay that makes sense but why? Well we lost the crystal pearl so maybe he sent us there to find it plus Poppy. ”Okay” I said, well what are we waiting for? Let’s go I gulped but I accepted we left.
Cough! It was so smoky “keep your ears perked up something might pop up that we don’t expect”. I tried to but I couldn’t .Suddenly, as fast as lightning a bunch of ghosts and their leader appeared. Knitle hissed. Their leader apporched”boo ha boo ha trying to get the crystal? “yes”, I”, I shouted well my name is sir. Boo, if you want to know. Without response, the ghosts fired up a move. Luckily Knitle was too fast for them. Well think stealing Poppy made her MAD. When she was in the air and sent out a beam which hit all the ghosts. Now only sir Boo was left. When he was trying to get Knitle, Knitle sent another beam. After some other beams he was finally knocked out. Suddenly all the knocked out ghosts disappeared! Knitle told me to keep walking.
We walked and walked and walked waiting for exiting things to happen, well only me, until we reached lava alley. Knitle told me to be careful. I didn’t listen I just skipped along without care until lava blast from the ground exploded in front of me! I was so scared! K Knitle, who was behind me walking carefully, ran up to me and yelled “I told you to be careful”. Right after her sentence a big lava flood came! With Knitle’s magic powers she flew me away to the other side of lava alley. Whew that was close! “Come on, Knitle said, we are here”. I hopped around until I crashed. When I looked up I saw a creepy and scary castle.
Welcome to Dragondread where we are going to get the crystal pearl and save Poppy. “Can I have a drink first?” I stammered but Knitle pushed me in. When we opened the door and walked in I saw a battle arena and then a throne dropped from the ceiling and 2 cages. When I saw the person sitting in the throne I recognized him immediately. It was King Flare Breath Knitle had described him perfectly earlier and the 2 cages held normal Poppy and the crystal pearl. Then with a booming voice the battle started! He hit me directly with a fireball. I was so startled I jumped but dodged the attack. When I came to the ground Knitle fired beams at the crystal pearl even Poppy! While doing that Knitle told me to make FlareBreath attack the crystal pearl, I asked why but she didn’t listen. Well I did what they told. I came to him and… tickled him. Boy was he ticklish. When I stopped I raced in front of the crystal pearl. The king was so angry he let out a beam to hit me. I dodged and it hit the crystal pearl! Finally the pearl let out a rainbow beam that went out the window and landed on a circle in the middle of Dead Land. When it touched the ground a big explosion appeared destroying Dead Land! Quickly teleported us to Magic Land where the ship, the citizens plus the magnificent crystal pearl waited for us.
Finally the old ship showed me the map I had seen before and within a blink of an eye I was sent to the park when I was looking for a hiding spot.” Huh was I dreaming?” I thought. I went to my dad still counting to 100 and told that I want to go home because I felt sick. When I was in the car I thought about my adventure and If my parents are going to believe me. The End....
