// she’s got everything, not everything //

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has everything?

Hey, welcome back to my corner of the web! Today’s blog post is going to be about me talking about how I feel and almost ranting, but not like an angry rant, just like me talking about something that I feel often, and I am hoping that maybe you can relate to it.

anyways

let us start this post.

Isn’t strange, no matter how much you have, you always long for more. Even if it was the best day in your life, there was still one thing that you didn’t do, such as listen to your favorite song or go to that cute antique shop you have been wanting to go to. Somehow that longing, makes you kind of forget about everything you did do, and you just focus on what you didn’t get to do.

its human nature

but that’s, not an excuse

We think that we deserve everything that we get, and if we don’t get it we feel as if we aren’t treated kindly. Like, let’s say your Mom says you can’t borrow any books from the library today, or your Dad won’t let you get the new app that came out. You feel as if they are being unfair. In your mind, you feel as if they owe you it. Now, sometimes this feeling can be subtle and you don’t really care that you can’t get a book from the library or download the app, but there is always something that taunts you, what if a  book that you wanted is on the shelves and you really want to take it home with you, but your mom says no. You probably will feel upset, and bitter. I can understand that. This all may not make sense and, that’s okay, I am just trying something new and I am just sharing my heart and how I feel and I am trying to inspire others to be grateful.

 things we don’t like happen

even though bad things happen, it’s up to you to make the right response.

but that’s hard

it is, but remember that there are so many other people that are going through the same thing. You are not alone.

🙂

So I don’t know if this made sense or anything, but maybe if you want we can discuss everything and talk about it. I really want to hear what you have to say and, yeah.

Even though it may seem as if you don’t have everything you want, remember you are blessed. And I think that we should start counting our blessings and stop taking things for granted, we have so much more then we think.

Hello! I am back with another entry!

This is my team:

Team-1

Mukta

Rose

Yashvi

Starling

Rachel

I used two prompts, three drawings, and one photograph. I used my team’s name, Meadows= 8 points

   The Letter

  Asher’s Point of View

“Oh my, this would look so cute on you!” Millie squealed pointing at a black kitten onesie.

REALLY bad drawing I made of a onesie, (it looks a lot better than this)

 

I let out a soft chuckle, amused. That was the one-millionth thing she had squealed about today. Every second she would dart across the mall and squeal about something. “Okay, that’s enough squealing for today…” I smiled, letting out a soft yawn.

“Okay, fine. It’s just that I haven’t been to a mall in ages!” She laughs.

We wander around the mall for another hour and then we head to the cash register and checkout. The cashier is a young, bubbly girl with bright blue hair. When she sees Millie, she gasps.

Aisling

“MILLIE!”She shouts, running over and hugging her.

“AISLING!” She shouts back, hugging her.

I just stand there awkwardly. “Oh, Asher, This is my friend Aisling!” Millie smiles, “Aisling, this is my husband Asher!”

“YOUR MARRIED?!” She shouts, so loud the whole mall probably could hear.

“YEAH!!!”

“But, you’re so young!”

“I am not, I am twenty-four and Asher is twenty-seven.”

“That is still REALLY young!”

“Okay guys, please calm down. It’s nice to meet you Aisling,” I smile, outstretching my hand. She reaches for it and shakes it, very hard. She and Millie are practically twins, they are very enthusiastic, very bubbly, and veryyyyyyy dramatic.

Aisling looks over at Millie’s stomach, which currently, is a bump.

“Whoa! ARE YOU PREGNANT!?” She squeals.

“YESSSSSSSSSSS!”

“REALLY!? CAN I HELP YOU PLAN A BABY SHOWER?!”

“YESSSSSS YAYYY!” They are practically jumping around and dancing.

“What do you guys think you are going to name the baby?”

“Astrid! We will name her Astrid.”

“And if its a boy,” I interrupt, “We will name him Blake.”

“I HOPE ITS A GIRL!!” Aisling squeals.

“MEEEE TOOO!” Millie squeals even louder.

I roll my eyes, I really don’t care if the baby is a boy or a girl, as long as its healthy.

“Millie, I really think we should get going,” I glance at my watch and let out a soft sigh.

Aisling hands Millie a postcard with a man riding giant chickens in a bright meadow on it. “I meant to give this to you years ago.”

I laugh, very hard. The photo was so amusing, I just couldn’t maintain a straight face. After finally checking out, we arrive back home.

Millie’s Point Of View

“I cannot believe I saw Aisling there! I haven’t seen her for years!” I smile

“That’s wonderful Millie, but can you try not to squeal so much, so loudly? The whole mall doesn’t need to know that your twenty-three.” Asher says, going through the mail. He pulls a letter out that says; “URGENT MESSAGE”

He starts to read it and his face turns to a worried expression, “Millie…?”

“Yeah, Whats wrong…?”

He opens his mouth to speak, then closes it, letting out a sad sigh.

“What-what happened…?!” I ask, confused, worried and frightened.

He looks at over at the window, outside into the rain, as if it would take away his worry and fear. “M-Millie… you aren’t from Adreinelle…?”

I start to feel sick, how did they find out, why? My life was finally perfect. I look down and take a deep breath, “No, I am not from Adrienelle, I am from, Latraion…”

“They want to execute you… we need to flee!”

I feel tears sprouting from my eyes,”No… how-? How did they find out?”

“I-I don’t know… but why did you flee your country…?”

I let out a sigh and wipe my tearstreaked face,”…Latraion used to be a beautiful place full of peace, love, and happiness. Until the loving president died and a new president was chosen. He was bitter and manipulative, playing with peoples minds and encouraging them to make the wrong choices. Leaders we trusted, turned evil, family members joined his side, oppressing others. My parents were weak and tired, I tried to save them, but… they died.”

“I-I’m so sorry, Millie…” He says, wrapping his arms around me and hugging me tightly.

“…So I came here, to get a new start… I didn’t think that anyone would notice, anyone would find out…” I say softly, a few more tears running down my face.

He gently strokes my forehead,”Shhh… It’s okay…” he whispers.

“…But everything is not okay…” I whisper back.

He opens his mouth to speak, but before he can, there is a huge banging noise at the door. My heartbeat quickens, and I feel petrified.

“Hide!” He whisper-shouts. But I can’t move, not even an inch.

Within seconds the door falls to the ground. I squeeze my eyes shut, tears streaming down my cheeks, paralyzed by my fear.

…To be continued…

I hope you all enjoyed! 🙂

Ardent Author’s Writing Challenge #1

Hello everyone!

I’ll be participating in Zielle’s AAWC. I’m super excited to share my first entry!              Here is my team:

Team-1

I used all three prompts!

 What lies beyond the eyes

Sirens could be heard from nearby, Millie dropped the bag, petrified. She had never been caught before, especially not on Christmas Eve. It wasn’t like she had stolen anything that important. Well… maybe it was a little important to the queen of Adrienelle. She hoped with all her heart that she could escape, but her body was paralyzed, by fear.

Millie woke up to a dark and small room, she could see huge metal bars. The last thing she remembered was that she was tazed. Now she was in prison.

“Well this is a nice change of scenery” She sighed to herself, playing around with the antenna of a gadget she stumbled across.

“It’s a prison cell…” A voice said, matter-of-factly.

“I was being sarcastic.” She mumbled back, still playing around with the gadget.

Wait a minute, someone is in here? She turned around and saw an abnormally tall boy, around her age, with messy black hair and the most alluring silver eyes.

“The names Asher, Asher Wellington.” He smiled. It was a nice smile, but it could’ve looked better. He held out his hand, wanting her to shake it.

“My name is Millie and I don’t know you and I don’t want to shake your hand…” She said looking back down at the gadget and fidgeting around with it. “Besides if I was in preschool I’d probably be screaming STRANGER DANGER!! And I would probably be hitting you with my lollipop!”

The boy laughed, quite amused. “You’re funny Millie!”

Millie looked up at him and began to laugh too, “What can I say, I got it all from my family!” she let out a soft sigh, looking down at the gadget again.

“You miss your parents?” He asked softly, kneeling down next to her.

She let out a soft sigh and spoke slowly, “Yes…I do…” She looked up at him, “Can I tell you a secret?”

Asher nodded, smiling down at her, “Of course, Millie”

“Okay,” She took a deep breath, “I’m the crystal bandit…”

His eyes widened, “You… are the crystal bandit?!”

She looked down, “Yes…I-I am…”She bit her lip, nervously.

“You are like one of the best bandits of all times! PLUS YOU’RE THE YOUNGEST ONE! Wow! “He said excitedly. “Do you have any tips?!”

“You want tips from a bandit who is in jail…? I don’t even think I qualify as a bandit anymore…” She sighed sadly, looking back down at the gadget.

“Of course you do! We just have to find a way out of here. You are clever, I’m clever! We make a perfect team!”

She shook her head, letting out another sigh.

“You sigh too much…” He joked, trying to loosen up the tension. He tried to find a way to cheer her up, he scanned the room and spotted something. With an awkward chuckle he pointed to the mistletoe above their heads.

 

Millie looked up at the plant and looked back down at the gadget, she could feel her cheeks growing hot, “I’m-I’m not sure if we should do that…” She said rushed, feeling rather flustered.

Asher gently picked her up and gave her a soft kiss. He smiled down at her a looked her in the eye, “Do you feel better, Millie?”

She blushed, avoiding his glance. “Y-yeah, I do feel…Better. Actually I feel amazing!” She smiled up at him.

They looked at each other for a few seconds and then he set her back down on the rug. He took a seat next to her, “Would you like to hear a story?”

She nodded,”Yeah, sure!” she reached for the strange gadget that she began to fidget with.

“I used to live on a farm when I was a kid, and my older brother wanted to be a mechanic, but my Dad, wanted him to take on the family trade, farming. So one day my brother got his first client. He was awfully excited, until he found out he would have to get a car out of a tree, and not only was the tree tall, but it was in the middle of a swamp, filled with abnormally large… ALIGATORS!-or was it crocodiles. I cannot remember, but it was one of those creatures.”

Millie laughed, “Was it really in the middle of a swamp filled with large reptiles?”

“Okay,” Asher laughed, “Maybe it wasn’t, but it was something somewhat dangerous. Like a meadow or something”

Millie rolled her eyes, still laughing.

“Back to the story; so my brother and I drove to where the car was stuck in his brand new jeep. So we drove for what seemed like five hours but it probably really was only an hour and a half, but I have a pretty overactive imagination. We finally got there and we saw a huge tree with a huge car in it.”

“Wait!” Millie interrupted, “How does a car get in a tree anyways?”

“Beats me.” He shrugged, “I don’t know what my brother had done, but somehow he got the car out of the tree. The End”

Millie laughed, “Bravo! Excellent story, or should I say tall tale?”

He chuckled and smiled at her, “I’m glad the crystal bandit has a great sense of humor!”

Millie nodded and snuggled up next to him, “Good Night Asher…”

He smiled down at her, “Goodnight Millie!”

Millie smiled softly and closed her eyes, she would cherish this day forever.


So yeah! This was my story! I hope you guys enjoyed.

Ciao (1)
