Advice Column Closed

Hi! I’ve decided to close the advice column because I haven’t had any questions. But I’m going to bring it back when this blog gets more popular 🙂 Also, I won’t be able to post as much next week because I’m going on holiday! I know this was a very short post. Thanks!

Isolation – Chapter 2

Here’s the next chapter of Isolation! I’m going to start working on the cover soon, and I’ve already thought of a blurb:

Hailey’s been sent off to boarding school and she’s never felt lonelier. But what she doesn’t realise is that there’s a ghostly presence with her . . .

Anyway, let’s get on to the actual story.


Ever since that spooky experience in maths, more weird things have been happening to me. The lights in my room keep switching off, there’s a scratching noise coming from my wardrobe and things keep disappearing and breaking. I’m certain there’s something paranormal going on here.

“Hey, Hailey, you okay?” asks Neve, the girl who sits next to me in English. I’m really surprised that she’s bothered to talk to me – nobody else has.

“I’m fine,” I lie, dredging up a fake smile.

“Look at this picture I drew of The Thorn,” she grins, reaching for her rough book. Our English teacher, Mrs Rose, is horrible so most people call her The Thorn. Neve shows me a fantastic drawing of Mrs Rose as an ugly judge at court, with a speech bubble saying “You have a five-year sentence for not doing your homework!” I can’t help laughing.

“Do you want to sit with me and my friend Maddie at lunch today?” asks Neve.

“Okay!” I say, grinning. Finally! I thing I’ve made a friend. I glance at the drawing again and crack up laughing, and Neve joins in.

“Neve, Hailey, what do you find so amusing?” asks Mrs Rose. Uh oh. We must have been laughing really loudly or something. What if she sees the picture? We’d be in for it.

“I just told Hailey a funny story,” fibs Neve, bravely.

“Well, would you mind repeating it for me?” Mrs Rose snaps. Oops! I should call her The Thorn, because apparently only goody-goodies say Mrs Rose. I know everyone hates goody-goodies, and I really don’t want to be hated!

“My dad’s friend always used to get discounts at shops by pretending that he was the manager’s friend. It worked until he told the manager that,” says Neve smoothly. Everybody giggles.

Neve could be a great friend. She’s really funny and lively, and actually acknowledged me.

It’s about time someone has.

Isolation – Chapter 1

Hi! Yesterday I said I would post the first chapter of the story today, and since I wouldn’t dream of betraying you here it is! I’m probably going to post one chapter at a time. The first chapter is quite short but I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂


I feel like I’m isolated.

Everyone else in this school shares a dorm with their friends, but guess what? There wasn’t any room for me, the new girl, so I have my own bedroom in the attic. It’s tiny and kind of spooky . . . and lonely.

I’ve been at Hilton Court for two weeks and haven’t made a single friend. I know, I know, I keep droning on about my miseries, but I can’t help feeling depressed, can I?

So . . . right now I’m sitting in Maths, listening to the teacher natter on about algebra. I mean, lessons are okay and I’m in the top sets, but I really hate algebra. The girls sitting either side of me keep leaning across me to whisper to each other and it’s so annoying that I think I might scream. I find myself thinking about my old life, before I came to boarding school.

My best friends (Issy, Alex and Emma) were fun and reliable, and, believe it or not, I never fell out with them. My sister Cammille was kind of annoying but I’d rather her than any of these snobbish Hilton Court girls. Back then I was a happy, confident, carefree girl, not like the sad, nervous and depressed girl I am now.

Wait a minute . . .

OH MY GOSH! Some writing has just appeared out of nowhere in my Maths book, written in blood-red ink. It says:

I’m watching you.

Journal Entry #2

Hi! Hello! Hoi! Hey! Howdy! (Sorry, I’m in a really crazy enthusiastic mood today)

Wow! I haven’t posted a journal entry for

AGES

but guess what? SURPRISE! I’m finally doing another one!

yay gif

So, today I went to this water garden place. I’d wanted to go for ages because I love waterlilies and Japanese landscapes so when my Dad said we were going I was really happy!

So, when we got there we went to the cafe. I had the BEST chocolate fudge cake ever. So good that my little sister kept stealing bits of it. While we were in there I just wrote some more of the story I’m writing at the moment (I’m going to publish the first chapter of it on this blog tomorrow 😀 )

The water gardens were really beautiful! In my opinion, waterlilies are the best flower ever! I also saw some ducks. WOW, Tisty, I bet everyone reading this has seen a duck at some point in their life.

Here are some photos I took:

watergardens

I think that’s it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just kidding! When I got home, I went on the computer to upload the photos and there was this really cool effect that let me make the waterlily look amazing!! (I used that to make my profile picture and signature as well)

Bye for real now!

Creepy Minecraft Experience!

OMG! The other day me and my friend were playing Minecraft PE and Herobrine was on our world! I’m not making this up. In this post I’ve written all about what happened.

We were in a woodland mansion and loads of illagers started appearing out of nowhere. We found some hidden command blocks that were spawning them all. Command blocks can only appear if someone put them there, and neither of us did. After we’d killed all the illagers and destroyed the command blocks, another one appeared and only could have spawned there if someone placed a spawn egg.

Then pieces of carpet kept disappearing. If you looked at the floor from above, you could see that it spelled out a word. The first said ‘die’.

Then we found one saying ‘I am’ and another one saying ‘God’.

Look! The type of wood beneath were it says god is different from the rest of the wood!

Then my friend started saying stuff in chat. But she wasn’t actually saying them.

Screenshot_2017-07-26-16-03-10.png

Look at the brackets! When my friend was actually saying stuff, they’re triangles, but when she’s not, they’re square. Then a storm suddenly started.

Unfortunately, then my tablet ran out of battery so I watched my friend’s screen. Then something REALLy creepy happened.

Next is the best part! We saw Herobrine in the window for a second and then the game crashed and the world deleted itself!

That’s it! I’m glad I finally have proof that Herobrine is real.

MCPE Craft

Me and my friend Skyshooter have a Minecraft PE server called MCPE Craft! We started it about 2 months ago.

Last summer, I made the first MCPE Craft. That one was by far our best one, as it had a finished hub and loads of minigames! Unfortunately, I ran out of credits to keep it going and eventually the server deleted 😦

A few months later, I made a second one which didn’t have much but we had to close it due to hacking problems.

On the 15th June, I made the 3rd and present MCPE Craft! It has some stuff, such as parkour and pixel art.

MCPE Craft 1

Skyshooter has finished the hub but she said she won’t open it until the first new player joins. If you want to join, the IP is J38495.pocket.pe and the port is 38495.
