Hello, my name is Ryann. With two N’s. People mistake my name a lot! They think Ryann is just my nickname but it’s my literal name! They call me Ryawn it’s really annoying. Like who’s name is Ryawn? I don’t know maybe some foreign person who doesn’t live in the US. Anyway I live in Alabama in my tiny town, tiny neighborhood, tiny school, and tiny house. Everything is tiny. There’s no BIG DEALS in Water Creek. I know everybody and no body moves here because Water Creek is so tiny. So same day every day. Mom comes home from the hospital, takes a shower, reads a book, and goes to bed not a single hug or kiss from her. Ever. It’s like she’s never loved me...
A Unique Brave
“Mama, why doesn’t Mr. Wilkens water this flower?” I asked mama tracing the window sill with my brown fingers. “Well honey he’s got better things to do,” said mama wiping the sweat from her forehead. Me, mama, papa, and my sister, Anya, were all slaves for Mr. Wilkens, who is our master. We work on his plantation. “Well what if I could take care of the flower?” I said petting the flowers crinkly brown petals. They were dry and dead petals. “Well, I suppose so, sugar,” said mama “Oh no!” I cried, “I ripped one of it’s petals!” Mama chuckled, “Well guess what you just did!” said mama putting her big, brown, dry hand on mine. “I killed it!” I cried, but the flower seemed to laugh too. “No no no you helped it!” said mama. I looked at her confused. “Yes, the flower is dead...
It was a snowy day and Cassida was excited about her first day at “Adventure World Camp.” She hoped she got a cabin. A cabin with a fireplace and a beautiful chandelier just for her. A wooly couch and fuzzy blankets also a butler and maid. But that wasn’t a thing at “ Adventure World Camp." When she got there the gravel crunched beneath Cassida’s feet, Cassida’s mom and herself were walking up to the camps registration desk. The owner's name was quite funny to Cassida. “Hello there, I’m Miss Chia Municipal and you must be Cassida,” “Yes, I’m Cassida. Nice to meet you Miss. Municipal!” Cassida shook Miss Municipal’s hand, she squeezed hard almost cutting off Cassida’s circulation. “It’s nice to see you guys...
C is for Cancer
It all started with a test. A test that spread to my doctor, friends, teachers, everyone really. I was completely doomed. I had never known something was...wrong with me. I thought I was completely fine when....I wasn’t fine. At all. It all started on the day June 2nd when I was with my besties Sora and Malia. We were jumping into Sora’s pool when I stopped. My head started throbbing my heart started racing and I fell. All I remember is Sora running inside and yelling to her mom and Malia yelling my name “ JUNE JUNE!” Then I was in the hospital my parents and friends hovering over me. “Mom? Dad? Sora? Malia?” I was so confused, “Why am I in the hospital?”...
Church is Awesome
Many people don’t know the importance of church. For example, maybe they don’t see it as important or they don’t see the value but I have come to know that church is extremely important! Church is awesome because it teaches me about God. It also makes me feel safe and loved. It also gives me something to look forward to...
