White Water Rafting

At School camp we went white water rafting.

We were bumping down the rapids and then we were in the taniwha pool and there was a huge rock that was as high as the sky.  The instructor said that we had to jump off that huge rock into the freezing cold water.  I thought was he was kidding but he was actually serious, but when I got to the top of the rock I startd freaking out because it was sooo high ad there was a huge rock a few feet under the water and I was afraid that I would hit it.  I closed my eyes, held my nose and took a big breath and then I jumped.  I jumped as far as I could so that I wouldn't hit the huge rock, and then I was in the freezing water.  I started swiming as hard as I could for the river bank so I could get out of the water and dry off.  The instructor was yelling at us to hurry up because time is money!

Next we were bumping down the worst rapids and the instructor had us headed for a low ledge protruding from the cliff face just above the water, then we smashed into the ledge and we were screaming and laughing as we held on for our lives. But then there ws a scream and a splash from right behind me, so I turned around and saw tht our teacher had fallen out so I started laughing.  The insructor told me that I was supposed to fall out not our teacher.  So then I staarted laughing so hard I almost did fall out!

Run

Part 2

We crept down the stairs and past the kitchen, Madam Fallita and the cook were having a very loud discussion about something, so we were able to get past without being discovered.

"Shhh" I hissed, "We don't want the mutant wolves to drag us back this time, you've go to be quiet."  I led them through the dining room and out past the out house through a hole in the fence and then we started sprinting and desperately trying not to fall in the dark. Dream stumbled and cried out so Kian shushed her and picked her up and carried her over his shoulders like a rag doll. 'he's so strong for someone who hasn't seen decent food for weeks', I thought admiringly to myself.

"Quick over here, this is a good place to stay until dawn," I whispered to them as I led them to a sheltered little cave, in the outcrop of a massive rock overlooking a dense forest that had an eerie quality about it in the half light of a crescent moon, "as soon as it starts getting light we have to leave and travel south to the Dead Swamps, where we will find the witches of Nora.  They can help us find a way to awaken my magic charms so that we can fight the Brothers and rescue Rose..."

Look for more soon.

When your going to look
For a good fit book
Need I remind
That when you read between the lines
You can even hear the sound of a brook!
