Emily Bronte was the less famous sister of Charlotte, who wrote Jane Eyre.

That book I like, and have read in full at least twice, however my story with Withering Heights isn't so grand. I got it maybe 12-18 months ago, but never got past the first couple of chapters affraid It just wasn't doing anything for me No

I Agree :study: GR - Wuthering Heights is not a book I can read. I do like Jane Eyre though, in fact a lot of those old books make great films.

Mrs Kipia (actually I sound like a cook) you know, Mr Kipling who makes exceedingly good cakes (UK advertisement) GR Laughing

wUthering, not wIthering lol!

You could maybe tell strangers that you are Mrs Kipia, the wife of Mr Kipling (you go with a slightly different name because you are Cool celebrities), if you seem them picking out his product at the supermarket and see if you get a affraid reaction Laughing

The main thing is that you are Pete's cupcake, as we all know. When you retire for the evening you Hugs (and maybe even occasionally Censored Laughing ) Very Happy

I was going to say something about him devouring his smartie, but I thought that was all a bit much for one post Laughing

I am not sure where I get them from either confused but I do love to play around with words Very Happy

CHAPTER THREE - THE AFTERMATH OF THE BIG BLACK WEB HOLE


She came too, but initially everything was hazy. Momentarily she had forgotten where she was. The bitter taste of her mother’s comments disappeared. How long was she in this web for? It was impossible to tell. In some ways it felt like years, but in others it felt like no time at all.

And then, all of a sudden, they returned. The bats. But she wouldn’t see them for long, due to the fact that they were flying towards her faster than the bat mobile. And so it was that they bounced, right into the web. For Summer, they had transformed this big black web hole into a trampoline.

And so she made a big jump. A hippo hugey jump. And as you can probably imagine, this well and truly snapped her out of her haze! Her life really was in danger now, as one who comes up, generally must come down, and well, Summer wasn’t a part of the feathered family.

But Sam was.

From onehundred and twelve metres in the air she began to fall. And never had she been so scared in all her life. We would need to add onehundred o’s to that so to emphasise just how so.

But at sixteen metres from the Earth she discovered her parachute. At first she didn’t know how she had stopped falling. But then she felt the feet on the back of her neck. The birds feet. It was the sparrow.

Gently Summer was transported back to solid ground, just outside the woods, on the side from which she’d entered. She was dropped onto some soft grass, and to add further surprise, she found herself basking in perfect sunlight. Summer was grateful beyond belief. "Thanky very muchly! What a strong sparrow you are, oh yes indeedy," Summer found herself saying out aloud.

Then she could have sworn that she heard a reply of, “It was my pleasure. By the way it is Sam, proud to be at Summer’s service.”

But after blinking the bird was gone, and Summer began to question the real or imagined state that she found herself in. “Anyhoo,” she thought, “I must be getting back to grandpa’s. Who knows how long I’ve been gone for?”

At first everything appeared the same as before, but you may remember that close to the woods there was a playground; one which provided many children from the area with joy. Well here the playground still remained, only now it was a shadow of its former self. For the playground was in ruins. Summer sat down and wept a few tears, without even thinking or perhaps understanding why, but regardless, she felt utterly compelled to do so. Still, it wasn't long before she was back on her feet and thinking positive thoughts. On this occasion she thought of her grandpa, and of his cookie cookies. She remembered that she had a couple of the chocolate chip ones in her pocket, one on each side. She nommed on these as she wandered back towards the hut.

But there was no hut. As Summer exited the outer edges of the greenery, she discovered herself to be in the surroundings of a small city. But rather then become scared at the difference and the unknown, Summer - being the proud exploring, investigating character that she is - felt a grandeur of excitement and set off into it. It was as if - at least for that moment - she had forgotten everything that had gone before.

Shocked What a Face confused hey now that's a suspense filled way to leave us and poor Summer. Love this latest entry it is very surreal and really makes you wonder what will happen next scratch Reading

I'm thrilled that Summer is so intrepid and likes exploring and investigating. ( a bit like Veronica Mars )?

Thanks for the Sunday edition Giraffe albino king

Yes, I seem to like these suspense filled endings to my early chapters Very Happy

It was a short and sweet entry I guess; a kinda segway between chapters 2 and 4. Now the real fun is about to begin!

Summer has a very creative mind, and is very much an individual. She also has a very caring nature and quick wit, so she's a sharp cookie! Quite possibly she is the perfect character; certainly perfect to play the lead role in my book. I never thought of Veronica Mars once in reference to her, but yes I very much like an investigative mind and individualism rather than a 'follow the crowd' type of person.

Thanks for your observations and compliments Mrs Kipia Group Hug

Giraffe albino king It's good to have different length chapters and some cliff hangers at the end of them too.

I am much looking forward to more over the days/weeks to see how Summer develops with her intuition and individualism (no sheep here).

The more who read it the merrier - for me - Mrs Squirrel, so if she isn't in the mood just pin her down and force her eyes open Laughing

There are already cookies in the book, but now these shall become sharp! And my squirrel character is going to have a new favourite phrase; FURRtastic! Though I think for the book purposes this will all be written in lower case Razz

I also need to find spots to include old adage and young deductage stuff!

A very good friend of mine let me in on this Shaun the Sheep character, and actually I have seen it a couple of times on Australian television. It's very clever, as it manages to draw you in despite having zero dialogue. Most definitely a show that can talk to kids and adults.

TSP sneak peak: You get a sharp cookie with every packet of smileys purchase Very Happy

P.S. I think I will use this young deductage in relation to the packet of smileys. There are already mottos so it will be an easy insert to the current text cheers

A new motto?

Sign offs; more important that the message itself

I like your co-ordination of the smileys on your latest sign-off! They are slowly stepping up, or climbing up, to the leopard Very Happy

You guy's surely do need some more smilies Very Happy we have all the smilies on offer already on the forum but we are able to add more, which we have done since the forum started,so if there is enough space left to add more I will , so I am on the case ( I had to wrack my brains to remember how to add them Embarassed ). I will probably be able to sort something over the weekend if you guys can hold on till then?

Maybe some Jack Russells Very Happy
