The Golden Spear - Part 2

Chapter 2 Discovery

2:30p.m (Club Period) Kin arrived at the clubroom after loosing the mob that was following him. Kin said: “Den, explain why I’m in armor and what is this spear.” Then, Den appeared and said: “I have no idea why you’re in armor but the spear is called the spear of ancients made by the ancients said to come from a different dimension or planet. They give it to the first person who pass their test of survival.” Kin replied: “What is this test?” Den replied: “It was to ensure the future of a planet. You see, the ancients destroy planets if the champions of that planet fail the test. That’s only if there is life on the planet. If there is none, they live it alone.” Kin asked: “How exactly do they choose the champions? Why do they destroy planets? And what do they do in the test?” Den answered: “They use a device that brings champions from 2000 years of its existence. If they survive the test, nobody but them knows why they destroy the planets. They have to survive, being hunt down for a time period.” Then a mysterious voice was heard saying: “Actually they we’re hunted down for 30 days in a multi terrain arena planet with weapons and supplies scattered all over the place and they have nothing but 2 weapons of choice and 7 days of supplies. Why so shocked? Oh, my name is Keldo the faerie guardian of the spear. One more thing, to take the armor off, think of it and the spear will turn into a necklace.” (Bell ringing) Den replied, “Do that Kin and let’s go to my lab.”

4:00p.m (Den’s Lab) Kin ponders on what just happened, while Den listens to the police radio, with Keldo suddenly hearing an emergency on the police radio saying
Crazy mad scientist ….. lasers …. Zombies …. Monsters ……. Hostage ….. officer down …… need backup
“Kin!”, Keldo called and said: “Kin, you must help them. They need your help.” Kin thought then remembered how he lost his father and then he transformed. Keldo said: “Kin teleport there.” Kin replied: “Okay, any other abilities I should know about?” Keldo in turn replied: “Yes, you can shape shift, fly, control elements, use 6th sense, summon the other guardians of the spear, use super strength and have mastery of the art of the spear.” Den spoke: “Kin hear an ear com. I’ll get there I just need a few things in my storage.”

I see now why the spear chose me. The spear chose me because of my past, my present and my future.

The Golden Spear - a short story

The Golden Spear is a four part short story written by my eldest son when he was 13 1/2 years old. It is one of their projects in English 8. My son really has a creative and imaginative mind. I really enjoyed reading it. I'm so proud of him. Hope you like it too!

Chapter 1 Awakening

(Alarm clock rings) Kenny Iris Nitro, Kin for short, awoke to the sight of his room. He looked to the right to see the time, which would be 7:35 am. Kin spoke very panicking: “I got to get dressed or I’m going to be late again”. He quickly went to his dresser to get his clothes. Went to the dinning room and got a piece of bread. Then got his bag, stuffed his mouth with the bread and sped towards his school.

At school time, 7:59 am, Kin’s school life was like any typical person full of problems, which now brings us to his first problem, a beating from matt the school’s quarterback, followed by him taking his lunch money. Which now brings us to his second problem, his crazy friend Drake (nicknamed: Den). Drake spoke: “Hey Kin, when are you going to pay me my $50 or do an errand for my club?” Kin replied: “I’ll take the errand and what club you need. 4 people for a club and there’s, let me guess, you hacked my name in the club”. Which now brings us to the 3rd problem. Kin’s biggest, to be exact, his crush and best friend Jenny failed since his recent discovery of her boyfriend being Matt, the guy that takes his money and beats him up. Now we go to his 4th and final problem, school, Kin was never the smart one even if his IQ is 156. Now, Kin gave up and just sleeps in classes, which unfortunately gets him detention, Teacher said: “Mr. Nitro, detention.”

Time of day, 12:30 am (Free Period) Kin’s point of view.
I dashed towards the mythic clubroom, which lead me crashing towards Jenny while she was going towards her locker carrying her books. I said: “Sorry Jenny. Here let me help you pick that up.” Kin did just that, accidentally touching her hand. After that, he dashed towards the clubroom again. I said: “Hey Den where is the room again?” Den replied: “Under the boiler room. Here’s a map and wear the suit.” I said: ‘No, not now not tomorrow not ever again.” Den said: “Not that one that was a prototype. You’re not going to get electrified again now. I tested this on myself, it works.” Den said: “Do I look like I’m not a person with an IQ of 300?” I said: “Yes, you look like a nut case but what the heck I’ll do it.” I followed the map while wearing the tight suit. I found the door with an inscription stating
Only the one chosen by the spear may open the door that will unleash the power of the ancient ones I tried to open the door by pushing and sliding it then I gave up until I noticed it was a pull door. I saw the spear after opening the door. It flew into my hands and gave me this golden suit of armor. Then there I heard gunshots. I got back up to the hallways to see criminals with shotguns, assault rifles and a bazooka. One of them even saw me and said, “You freak!” (said while grabbing someone which was Jenny) “Get away or I kill her.” I growled and charged at him, knocked him and his buddies out and saved Jenny. Jenny said: “Thank you golden spearman!”, giving me a kiss on the cheek. Then goes away. I said to myself: “Den, you got some explaining to do.”
