Frindle's Rising Chapter 2

Few centuries later...
In the beyond future, where two girls are going to school. Frindle is gone, but her hold still clutched everyone's throats...
             In the bright morning of day, two girls were walking on the empty streets of Frindle's Land. They recently had an arguement, but they still vowed like usual to stay together since the town is not safe like it use to be. It was never safe since the day they were born, but they would always compare their lives to their mother's; thinking how splendid it was to live with no fear of the power's that belonged to Frindle. 

               One of the girls stopped and stared down the rocky path ahead of them. Her black ponytails started to blow in the wind as the silence filled the space between them. She clutched her pale lime green dress and tied the white bonnet again that she wore over her dark long hair. She turned to her friend who looked back nervously now; twirling her short red hair and looked pleading with her emerald green eyes. The fearless girl then changed the tone in her blue eyes to a calm one and put her hand on the other’s girl shoulder.

            “Don’t worry I’m not mad.” She said now rough housing the other girl's head playfully.

            The other girl was still nervous though and just jumped out of her grasp, “Gwen! Don’t scare me like that!”
            The girl known as Gwendolyn, Gwen for short, smiled and laughed a little too harshly.

            “I’m sorry, Mary. You know for before. It was just that Frindle was on the brain.” Gwen apologized, putting a finger on her left temple.
 The other girl known as Mary, Marilyn being her full name, made a small chuckle with eyes still a little fearful. She rung her fingers through the wrinkles of her blue dress and straightened her bonnet’s long tails to distract herself a bit. She then stood next to Gwen and made a small nervous smile. Gwen smiled back reassuringly and gave her a short hug. It made Mary feel a lot better and they continued to stroll down the pathway.

            The streets they strolled past were dusty and bare like always. It was dead silent and it seemed no one would live here ever again. They passed by the empty shops and stores as they saw a giant building in the eerie distance. The building was really worn down; had cracks all over and craving were slowly disappearing like if they being sucked out of the wall little by little. The windows were plain holes in walls, making the whole building seem dull and deserted.

               "There is the school." Mary replied sadly.

               "Yep." Gwen agreed solemnly.

               There was soon a silence that took over between the friends as they saw the sun starting to shine higher in the sky. The wind blew against their backs; the girls illusion the wind pushing them closer to the place they could care less about.  They still trudged on, now walking by a dark ally way. The hairs on the back of their necks stood on end as down the ally, they heard a giant hiss, clinking, and a few clanking from the darkness below. Gwen’s pointed ears perked when she heard these noises, grabbed Mary’s wrist and took action. She ran a few yards down the street and didn’t stop until she thought it was safe. She was breathing a little hard and was on her knees with Mary rubbing her back when she thought they were far at a good distance.

            “That was close. We could have been caught.” Mary commented with terror in her voice.

            “I know.” Gwen answered back in a low, no emotional tone.

            Gwen looked to the sky. The sun was bright in the blue clear sky. She almost visioned the sky in flames as she heard screams of terror that rang through out her body. Her eyes began to water as the vision started to disappear out of her mind and then looked down. Her hands turned into fists.

            “Why… Why did she have to create those things?” Gwen growled to the unknown.
            “Well that was a different time and we have to unfortunately live with it. We don’t have to deal with this once…”
            “Once we finish school and pass the test. I know! I get it!” Gwen snapped back, now standing on her feet.
            “But, I don’t understand why?" She continued, "The test at the end is fighting something made of iron. We all know that everyone will never beat it.”
            “Come on Gweny don’t say that.” Marilyn advised, grabbing Gwen’s shoulder.
            Gwen’s eyes suddenly were shining violet and grasped Marilyn’s hand. She squeezed it tightly; Mary’s eyes widened with her mouth gaped a bit. The pain throbbed throughout her body as she saw a dark aura take over her friend. She almost saw the aura trying to grab hold of Mary to swallow her whole. Soon the pain woke Mary out of the state, but she let out a ghastly scream.

            “Don’t call me that! I’m the one the only Frindle! Don’t you dare say that distasteful name! Fear me or I shall kill you, your family, friends, and everyone who your wimpy fey heart cares about!” A dark, hard voice boomed out of Gwen’s lips.

            “Gwen! Stop it!” Mary screamed back with a shaky voice, “You’re not Frindle! Fight it! Fight it Gwen!”

            The hand that belonged to Gwen grew sharp nails and started to dig into Mary’s skin. Blood drew and prickled down Mary's arm. Marilyn felt breathless as she felt the energy in her drain quickly from her hand and fell to her knees. She chocked on her strength that was weakening as she managed to say, “You’re not Frindle! You’re Gwendolyn Rightfield Arrowheart! You’re not that mass murder who killed the innocent fey! You’re my friend! Don’t let Frindle in!”
            Gwen made a big hearty laugh filled with an evil pure power. It made more blood spill as she tighten her grip on poor Mary. Marilyn finally stood up not able to take the pain anymore and with a force of her other, not injured hand, she slapped Gwen’s cheek with all her might. They both then fell to the floor; with Gwen’s eyes turning normal and Mary grabbing her arm to stop the flow of blood. As Gwen stared at Mary with a blank expression, her eyes grew wide and with a gasp, went closer to Mary and hugged her tightly.

            There was silence as the sky grew darker and Mary started to rain silent tears down her cheeks. Gwen pulled Mary to a very friendly hug and rubbed her shoulders protectively. That’s when Mary started to sob, wheezing a little as she did so. Like the sound made the sky cry as well, black snow started to drift down across the land; sharing the sorrow that the two friends experienced at that moment.


  1. That grabbed me. It was a good chapter, and I could certainly see it as a two-dimensional anime movie. (Realistic anime).

  2. Heehee thank you. I'm hoping for this story made into a movie for I always keep on thinking about this book as a movie. It's weird, but it's how I get the story to flow on.

  3. Let the story go on. Although, it is a lot of time, work effort, and money to make books into movies. The book must suit the entire audience reading it. I certainly love it.
