Jinxed

By LakeBlue1

Humor / Adventure

Chapter 1

It was yet another beautiful day on the island of Club Penguin. Lake Blue was hanging out with her friends Jessie and Mewcat in the book room.

"So what are we going to put in this newscast?" Jessie asked, tapping her purple pencil on the desk.

"Well, our invention is the Telephone, so we just have to explain its political, social, and economic impacts in the form of a newscast." Lake Blue answered, looking on her laptop.

"Gee, that helps a lot." Mewcat said sarcastically, making a face. "You just essentially quoted the task." She gestured to the task and rubric on the table.

"Okay then. Lets include a local news report and the weather forecast in addition to the feature report on the telephone." Lake Blue shrugged.

"I call the weather!" Jessie smacked the table with her flipper.

"I'm doing local news." Mewcat called.

Lake Blue looked up from her laptop screen. "Really? You guys are so nice." She protested. "Ah, whatever. If we get a seventy don't blame me."

"So let's get started. I found a newspaper museum online. We could check out some newspapers from the 1800's for the local news." Lake Blue continued, gesturing towards the website she had on her screen.

"Isn't that cool? It's like really old newspapers." She asked, zooming into the advertisements and articles.

"You find an old piece of paper interesting?" Mewcat asked expectantly.

"Yeah. So You guys do your part then help me with the feature report, since it is the most important part." Lake Blue instructed.

"Or we could procrastinate, since we do have like a month to do it." Jessie suggested, leaning against the back of the couch she was sitting on.

Suddenly, Lake Blue's EPF phone began to ring.

"Good morning Lake Blue." A familiar robotic voice greeted.

"Hey Director!" Mewcat called.

"Hi!" Jessie greeted.

"Good morning to you, Director. What's up?" Lake Blue continued.

"Please report to the EPF command room as soon as you can. We will be hosting a meeting shortly." With that, the Director hung up.

"Yay! Procrastination!" Jessie cried happily as they packed their bags up and teleported to the command room.

Gary, Dot, and Jet Pack Guy were already waiting for them there. They took a seat in the plush chairs as the meeting began.

The director appeared on screen.

"Good morning everyone. Lets get started, shall we? Herbert has returned from his voyage. Turns out, he had actually floated up to the moon. He was stuck on the moon for a few days before being rescued by EPF agents, who were sent up to the moon by a rocket."

A video played on screen, showing Herbert with a bubble around his head as he stepped into the rocket with an angry look on his face.

"So that's all. Congratulations for stopping him." The director smiled.

There was an awkward pause.

"That's it? That's all you called us here for?" Mewcat looked expectantly.

"Yes, that's it. I will see you all soon." Then the Director signed off.

There was another uncomfortable pause, before Mewcat started again.

"Don't you think calling us here to tell us Herbert was on the moon is a bit too much?" Mewcat asked.

"Sorry I'm late!" A loud, shrill voice echoed through the hallways as a dark green penguin with a red propeller cap barged into the room and collapsed onto a chair.

"Rookie, you just missed the entire meeting." Dot told him.

"Or did I? Dun dun dun!" He added dramatically, grinning at the penguins.

"Yes, you did." Mewcat told him.

"Oh. Okay then." Rookie smiled.

There was a bit more silence, then Rookie broke the silence.

"So...How's life?" Rookie asked.

"Bien, gracias. Y tu?" Lake Blue answered, confusing the poor penguin.

"What?" He tilted his head in confusion.

"You estoy cansada." Mewcat caught on.

"Por que?" Jessie asked, smiling.

"Moof!" Rookie interrupted, smiling happily.

"Rookie! You interrupted our conversation!" Mewcat exclaimed.

Rookie said nothing. He glanced around the room before complaining, "I'm cold."

"Hello cold, I'm Jessie." Jessie joked, winking.

"Hi Jessie, I'm Rookie." Rookie smiled, holding his flipper out.

"Okay, that makes no sense whatsoever, but okay." Jessie shrugged to the others as she shook his flipper.

"Now we are just wasting time. Let's dismiss this meeting before we bore ourselves to death." Jet Pack Guy suggested.

"Good idea. Meeting dismissed." Gary piped up.

The group of penguins got out of their chairs and picked their bags up. They were about to leave the room when Rookie fainted.

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Valeria Rocco Lo Presti: I have to confess that I read the book in less than a week. I became obsessed with the characters as I was entering to their world. It is definitely a must for those who enjoy a pleasant reading with amazing writing skills!

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
