CPC CHALLENGE 6

Hey! So… This challenge of CPC is the last one! Can you believe that? #sad

Anyways, prompts I used:

2)

“I never stood a chance, did I?”

“That’s the sad part – you did, once.”

3)

I’m not sure why I fell in love with her.

Yes, a new divider! I couldn’t resist! #SoPretty

I groaned. Why did Claire have to collapse now? I frowned, those types of thoughts usually didn’t come to me. I bent down and got a water bottle out of my backpack. I uncapped the lid and slowly made Claire drink it. After a while, she woke up.

“Scared… Of heights.” She mumbled.

“Oh no,” I said, “It’ll be okay, you can do it! Come on, I’ll help you.”

And so we both went, on the bridge, Claire staggering with each step, me holding her and encouraging her. After a while, we both reached the other side and I forgot all my pain. In front of us, stood a mansion. White, with shining “everthings”. A magnificent garden, with every imaginable plant and vegetable.

I gasped. What was this place and how had I not seen the mansion from where the taxi dropped us? For a moment, I thought I was going to faint as well, but my arm was secured by Claire.

“Woah… This is where our parents live?” She asked, her voice full of curiosity. “They must be rich!”

I laughed. We were on the verge on meeting our parents, and all she thought about was how rich they were? But she was right, of course. All of our lives had been spent in a tiny, cramped room that stinked. If our parents lived here… Well, life would be perfect for us from now. Claire’s grip on my arm tightened and I snapped out of my daydream.

“Let’s go.” I nodded, but my feet were jelly. “What if our parents didn’t want us? What if there were cruel? What if there were worse than Master? What if…” My negative thoughts could have gone on and on, but Claire was halfway up the steps, and she was waiting for me.

“Coming!” I ran, my feet killing me. I reached my destination and Claire and I walked up the stairs, our hands trembling as I pressed the doorbell.

10 seconds gone, no one.

20 seconds.

30 seconds.

31.

32.

33.

34.

A man opened the door.

When he did, he had his back to us and he was talking to someone.

“I never stood a chance, did I?” He asked.

“That’s the sad part – you did, once. I’m not sure why I fell in love with her.” I felt a jolt in my body. I knew that voice. It brought back some of the only memories I had left. Painful memories. The man at the door laughed.

“Ummm. Mister?” Claire said, her loud voice reduced to a little squeak. The man turned around to face us, and when his eyes rested on Claire, he collapsed.

“Blake…Isabelle…Eleanor…Come! Hurry! They’re here!” He yelled. I waited for Claire to say something. She was usually the one who did all the speaking, but right now, she seemed paralysed, her eyes glistening with tears.

“Dad?” She managed to squeak out before fainting for the 2nd time in a day.

“Ohhh, no.” The man, I suddenly realised, was my uncle. Ian. He was tall, and had brown eyes, just like Claire’s. Yes, we had come to the right place. Just as he was about to lift Claire up, a trio arrived. 2 women, and a man. I felt giddy as I looked at the woman. She had similar features to Claire’s dad, and features I saw in myself. I didn’t wait for her to notice me. I ran inside and hugged her, surprising her, but she realised who I was.

Her daughter, who she hadn’t seen in 12 years. I hugged her, catching up on 12 years worth. She squeezed me and I could feel her tears landing on my hair. After a while, she let go and fell to her knees, her eyes darting all over my body.

“Ohhh, Audrey. You have grown SO much!” She exclaimed.

“Yes. She has. My dear girl!” A loud, manly voice said. I turned around.

To see my father.

1 HOUR LATER…

After a whole load of tears, hugs, kisses and happiness, all 6 of us sat down at the dining table, Claire and I waiting for explanations.

“You see, girls, we had to drop you there. Your fathers insisted upon it. They said you would be safe from the threat.” Isabelle, Claire’s mom, said.

“What threat?” Claire and I asked at the same time.

“When you were born,” My mother, Eleanor, said, “There was a threat against us. We were rich, we had a blooming business. The downside of that was having lots of rivals. One of our biggest rival was Henry Cratere. He wanted our business to fail, so he sent us a note, which said, that if we didn’t give you both to them, they would file a court case against us, for killing somebody. Of course, we didn’t actually kill anyone. They just threatened us like that so we would give you both over to them.”

“Why did they want us?” Claire asked.

“They knew, that if they had you both, all four of us, we would become too depressed, and our business would fail automatically.” Ian said.

“And what about the court case?” I questioned.

“Ohhh, before he could file a court case against us, the police realised he was the murderer of Alice Green, so he got a jail sentence for 10 years.” Blake grinned.

All four of them waited for that information to sink in.

“Why Master?” I asked suddenly.

“He’s Eleanor and I’s brother and we knew he would take care of you, even though he would, sometimes, mistreat you.”

I was shocked. My mum and Claire’s dad, they were wonderful people, but Master being their brother?

“He’s adopted.” Blake said, as that would help. It helped a little, but the shock remained.

“I believe you.” Claire said. Great.

“I do too.”

And, that is the end of my CPC story! Claire and Audrey lived a wonderful life after that, enjoying every moment, in case you wanted to know. Well, see you next time!

3) “Was the scarecrow like that yesterday?”

download

The next morning when I woke up, I lay on bed for while, feeling excited. The day I had been waiting for since I was a young child, had finally arrived. I turned over to face Claire. She was still sleeping. I sighed and got out off my bed, my feet trudging along the carpet to reach Claire. I shook her, hoping that today, I wouldn’t have to try to hard to wake her up. But, unfortunately, even today, Claire wouldn’t wake up.

“Really dude? Come on!” I sighed to myself, looking for things to help me wake her up. I spotted a jug of water and a brilliant idea came to mind. I crept over to the jug, grabbed it and walked back to Claire, emptying the whole jug on her!

She kept on sleeping. I groaned, why, in my childhood, had I always done this trick? Now she had gotten used to it and wouldn’t wake up.

“Fine. I’ll leave her to it and go bath.” I thought to myself. After a while, when I got out of the the bath, I heard Claire sleep talking.

“What are you doing, buffoon?”

“No,no,no.”

“Let’s go Gtrra.”

“No, you have to come with me!”

“Wait a minute!”

“Was the scarecrow like that yesterday?”

And then she woke up. She must have seen me giggling, because her eyebrows shot up in confusion.

“What? Why am I wet?”

“You were saying the lamest things in your sleep. You’re wet because I wanted to make you wake up! Do you even remember what day it is today?” I asked. Her eyes sparkled.

“I’ll be back in a while, I’m taking a bath. Prepare the backpacks.” And with that, she flung herself into the bathroom. She came out a while later and announced –

“Let’s go! I have money on me, we can get a taxi.”

“Kay.”

We walked down to the reception, paid the hotel and walked toward the exit. We heard footsteps behind us and we turned around to find the same men we both had defeated the day we had met Master.

“Oh no. Not again.” Claire mumbled under her breath. “We don’t even have any weapons. This is gonna be bad.”

“Very bad.” I nodded as Claire and I slowly backed up, hoping to get toward the door unnoticed. Then, I spot the receptionist, walking up to the men with a hockey stick. She hits one of them on the head, immediately making him unconscious. Claire and I hurriedly grab a plant pot and smack the rest of the baddies, the receptionist helping.

We help the receptionist move the bodies, and make them sleep on the beds.

“Thank you so so so much!” Claire and I say to the receptionist, but she just smiles.

“Go! You have work to do, don’t you?” Gently shoving us towards the doors.

We walk out and get a taxi, both of us separated by our own thoughts of finally meeting family. We had arrived at 31, Cane Street, Custra, Sydney.

“You both live here? I hear this is a mansion. You have to walk over a river to get there.”

“Yea..h We live here.” Claire stammered.

“Well kiddos, you have a nice life.”

“Thank you?” I replied.

We both walked to the path that seemed like it would never stop. After a while, the lone trees turned into a forest. An Amazon type forest, without the animals. I gasped at what I saw next. A rope bridge leading to a mansion. Was that where Claire and I would have to live? Related image

Just as I was about to rush to the bridge, Claire fainted.

Anyways, without wasting time today, on to the story!

  • This story is no longer in Claire’s POV. It is now Austra’s POV!
thing2
MY NEW DIVIDER!!!!!!!!!!!! SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My hand moved behind me to grab a branch. Claire did the same. I was shocked. How did he get here? He never went anyone. He edged closer.

” Ohhhh, Claire and Austra, gimme back my diamonds… Or else…” Master said.

I glanced behind me. A road, which me and Claire could easily run on. Master couldn’t catch us, he was too slow. Claire looked at me and I could see that she had understood what I wanted to do. She nodded and looked at Master. We both swung at him, my stick attacking his legs and Claire attacking his arms. He cried out in pain, but me and Claire were too far away to care.

But, as it turns out, Mater had people there to stop us.

“Crap.” Claire said under her breath. They were twice the weight of us and double us in the height industry as well. I glanced at them. What could we do to get out alive? They edged closer and I could fell their breath on me. I bent down and said –

“Fine. You get the diamonds.”

Claire looked shocked but Master’s people grinned.

“Giving up this easily. girlie?”

I nodded and as they came closer, I attacked their legs with my sharp stick. I watched them as they slithered to the ground, clutching their legs. Claire, obviously pleased at what I had done, attacked the last 2 men, leaving them in the same position as the men I had attacked. We hugged and ran.

After a while, we stopped, clutching our knees. I looked around, we were near a busy road now. Good. Claire spoke –

“We should find some people who give us money for jewellery. Jewellers, I mean. ”

“Does this count as jewellery?”

“Course it does.”

“Okay then, I still have some money from the thief. We’ll get a taxi and ask the driver to take us to a jeweller.”

“I like that plan. I’m so tired.” Claire sighed and started walking to the nearest taxi stop. I followed her and 30 minutes later, we both were in a taxi, heading to Jayne and Miles’s Jewellery For All Occasions Shop. We arrived a while later and after paying the driver, Claire and I walked up the stairs to what seemed like a 1900’s mansion.

We were greeted by a old lady wearing a some very modern clothes that somehow matched her personality.

“Hi. I’m Karin. …” She said.

“My deepest regret?

I… murdered someone.”

My face turned into a mix of confusion and fear. Claire’s face, though, was probably worse than mine. Karin through back her head and laughed.

“Don’t worry, I was only joking. I do that to everyone who comes here. So funny seeing their reactions.” I calmed down, it was only a joke.

“Now dears, why did you come to Jayne and Miles’s Jewellery For All Occasions Shop?” The old lady asked.

“Ohhh, ummm, it was because we needed some money and we can exchange it for diamonds.” I said, hoping she wouldn’t ask to many questions about our age. Unfortunately, she just had be nosy and did.

“And, why are you both so young?”

“It’s because… of the person who takes care of us. We’ve lived with him for all our lives and he trusts us both enough to take his diamonds and bring his money back to him safely. He is financial trouble, you see.” Claire was good at lying.

“I see. Well, you may see Jayne and Miles.” She pointed to a door and we both stepped into the house. We opened the door to see – Jayne. 15. She was wearing a hot pink and cyan jumpsuit. Miles. 16. He was in a complete black suit. I don’t know how I knew their ages. They just looked like it.

“Hello. What can we do to help you?” Jayne asked.

“Ohh, can we get money for these diamonds please?” I still wasn’t over my shock.

“Sure. Can you give me the diamonds?” Jayne asked.

I gave her the diamonds I had on me and Claire gave hers to Jayne. She inspected them and handed them over to Miles. He went into a room and came back a while later.

“10,000. That’s the most we can give you both. They are pretty small.” Miles said.

“Deal.” Claire and I were on Cloud 9.  He took the diamonds and returned with a small bag filled with our cash. We thanked them and walked out, happier than ever.

” We should find a place to stay for a while. ” I suggested. Claire agreed with me and we walked around the town and happily, for us, we found a hotel to stay in. They didn’t seem to worried that we were alone, which was a bit surprising, but, at least we found a place to stay.

READ THE FIRST 2 CPC CHALLENGES TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING

On to the story! :

I stiffened. Austra grabbed my arm and quickly pulled me through a door I hadn’t even seen. It was a bathroom, just as clean as the rest of the house. I glanced around, trying to find an escape route. I spotted a window and I nudged Austra. She nodded. She crept to it, and opened it without any difficulty. I sighed. At least something was going well. She frowned at me, and by using hand gestures, she told there was no support on the ground. I shook my head, we had no other option.

She prepared to jump, 3 ,2 ,1, she was gone. I was left alone with the random guy who probably wanted the diamonds. I walked over to the window, my hands trembling. I tried to recall how Austra did it. She had climbed up, so she was sitting on the window still and then she took off. I climbed onto the window still, where I could see Austra’s back, probably looking for way to run. I took a deep breath and jumped.

For 2 seconds, I felt as if I were dead, but then I got used to the feeling. I landed after what seemed like an eternity. Austra turned to face me, her face filled up with pain. My eyes moved down to see what was bothering her. Her legs. Both of them, were grazed and losing blood every second I wasted. Before I could do anything, I heard footsteps approaching, not near, but not that far away either.

“Austra…Do you think you can run?” I knew it was a silly question, but I still asked it. She shook her head, what was I expecting?

“Come on… Please… We just have to get in a bit far to those woods…” I said, gesturing to the woods that just so happened to be near the house. She nodded and I put my arm around her shoulder to help her. We kind off ran, kind of hopped deep into the woods. Or at least, what I hoped what deep was. The first thing to do was to wrap Austra’s wounds up. I grabbed her scarf and wrapped her left leg with it. I grabbed my scarf and wrapped her right leg with it. She gave me a weak smile, and dozed off.

I couldn’t sleep at all. I spent all night wondering about, climbing the stairs that were there and thinking about the clues our parents had left us. It was a letter, which read :

Dear Girls, 

We are so sorry we had to leave you with that monster. We didn’t want to, but your fathers said it would be best. We know how desperately you want to see us, even though we are so far away. So, when you are 12, you may come find us. Follow these clues : 

 

In a mansion,

we wait for you. 

The place where you were born, 

Your birth dates combined, 

your middle names combined,      

Your names combined,

Last, but not least, where was Master’s Mother born?

Girls, we hope to see you both when you are 12. Be warned, if you both come before you are 12, we will know. 

P.S – What type of dress does an ad wear?

I sat down as I reread the letter. Me and Austra had worked it out when we were 7. Your birth dates combined meant 21+12, which equalled to 31. Our middle names combined was a bit more tricky. Mine was Charlotte  and Austra’s was Jane. Combine them and you get Cane. Our names, Claire and Austra, combined was Custra. Master’s Mother was born in Sydney. Then me and Austra had go stuck on the P.S bit. What did it mean?  We both had figured it out at the same time. An ad wearing a dress would be called and address. All of the clues above were an address. Once we sold the diamonds, we had to go to 31, Cane Street, Custra, Sydney.

We had even looked it up on a map, the place really existed. I remember that day. Me and Austra were so happy, it was knowing that even though they had no contact with us, they still existed. I sighed, now was no time for the past. It was time to find our parents. I shook Austra awake and asked her-

“How are your legs?”

She replied with a new energy in her voice-

“Really good, I don’t even feel the pain anymore!”

“Do you still need the scarves?”

“Nope.”

“Okay, I’ll take them off.” As I did that, Austra glanced around for food. She spotted a few berries and once I finished with the scarves, we gobbled them down and just as we were going to go, we saw…

THE STORY ENDS (FOR NOW)

So that is the end for CPC 3! I’ll be back next time, bye!

The Prompts I Used:

2)

I watched as everything faded before my eyes.

No.

This could not be happening.

*Before I start the story, I recommend you read the post before CPC 1, so you understand what is going on because this story is continued. CLICK ME TO SEE THE 1ST STORY

The Story: *yay*

I didn’t bother thinking about my bike now. I had better things to think about. What would we find when we got there? What if the thief was lying? What if… What if… Negative things that could happen ran through my mind and I shooed them away. We were going to find those diamonds and find our parents. After a while, we finally arrived. We payed the driver the money and took a deep breath.

“Ready?” I asked. Austra nodded and we walked the path. We stopped at the door and I turned the door knob cautiously. I didn’t know what I was expecting. A dark room covered in cobwebs, stairs that creaked? I was totally wrong. The room was fully furnished and clean. The stairs were so clean that we could see our faces pointing up at us. I glanced at Austra. She nodded and we walked up the stairs, fearing our every step. We reached the top of the stairs and I felt a nauseating feeling wash over me.

I watched as everything faded before my eyes. No. This could not be happening. Not now. I screamed. The pain… It was too much. The voices. I could hear my parents talking to Austra’s parents. They were shouting at each other – ” No ” ” We NEED to leave them!” ” Here? Never!” Austra was cradling me like a baby, I could feel here, I just needed enough strength to get out my vision. I summoned my strength and I could feel Austra and her soft hands properly. There were tears running down my face because of the pain.

“Was it… The voices… Again?”

I nodded, not strong enough to talk yet. Austra understood and I lay there for a while and after a while, I spoke-

” The same vision I’ve been having since a month. Nothing changed this time. It was just the voices. ” I sobbed and Austra continued cradling me, her soft hands going over my hair, bringing me to a state of calm.

“What do you think they mean?” I asked, my voice trembling.

“I don’t know. Our parents… They were fighting… You said that… Our moms didn’t want to leave us here, our dads did. We just have to find them, wherever they are, and ask them – why?” Austra’s voice had a new level of  positivity  in it. I nodded, believing her.

After a while, I stood up and beckoned to Austra to come with me.

“Where are we going?” She asked.

” The room the thief mentioned. Not that we’re here, we might as well get the diamonds.” We walked over to each room, and finally Austra found the child’s room. She walked in and I followed her. We both head to the bed and lifted the mattress. There, in a small black bag, lay the diamonds. We both squealed, we were a step away from finding our parents. Austra and I looked at each other, what next?

“Now that we have the diamonds, we should take a break. We can sleep here for the night.” I suggested, for the 1st time noticing how tired I was.

“No, we can’t do that. The house looks like it’s been cleaned recently and the owners may be coming back soon. We have to leave.” I agreed with Austra, and just as we were about to leave, we saw a shadow of a man printed on the door.


And that is the end of that! Before I go, I need to tell everyone who has my button something. I was deleting pictures the other day and I accidentally deleted them! Thank you to Enni and Mukta for telling me! I don’t have a backup right now but I have asked Mirra for one and when I have my button back, I will tell you.

Bye,

The Story: *dramatic music*

I sighed as I watched the waves lap up to the rocks.

“Do you ever think we’ll get it back?” I asked my friend Astra.

“Maybe.” shrugged Astra.

“Uh huh. But to get it back, we need to find a 5’6 man, with a goatee and a scar on the upper lip. Pretty hard to do in a country full of 3,000,000 million people. Don’t ya think?” I said.

“I don’t know. Why do we have to find the person who stole Master’s diamonds anyway? It’s not like we’re his slaves or anything!”

“Because… He says so? Wait… We could steal the diamonds! Find the person who stole Master’s diamonds, torture him to tell us the hiding place, get the diamonds, sell them, and with the money we could find our parents! We could have a great life without Master.” I said, excited about the plan I had formed. I leaned against my bike. A sudden movement jerked me out my calm. A man, 5’6, with a goatee, a scar on the upper lip  and the exact malicious face Master had described to the Police when he found out about his diamonds. I grabbed Austra by the arm and pointed to the man, and covered her mouth just as she was about to gasp.

“Be quiet! Walk up to him, by then I will have a plan” I instructed.

She nodded and we started walking up to the man, leaving my bike stranded near the rocks. Every step we took, I felt as if the man was going to turn around any second. We were 5 steps away from him. Austra turned to me and her eyebrows went up as if to say -“What now?” I spoke in a low voice ” You go back to my bicycle and stand there screaming in pain. I’ll get the man over there and you push him into the water, and we’ll dive in after him, retrieve him and interrogate him about the diamonds.

She walked back and a second later the screams started. I pretended to look surprised when I heard them and turned around quickly so the thief wouldn’t see my face. The thief acted pretty well, faking the surprise. He sprinted over to Austra and I panted to keep up with him. I got there just as Austra pushed him into the water.

“Good job.” I said, heaving.

“Thanks. Should we go down and retrieve him?” She asked.

I nodded and we both plunged ourselves into the cold water. It took my eyes a while to adjust, but when I did, I swam over to the thief. Me and Austra grabbed him by the arms and took him back to shore. We both lay there for a while, hoping no one would pass by. Austra started looking through his jacket, indicating to me I should do the same. After a while of searching, she pulled out a gun, and said-

“It’ll help us when he wakes up.”

She really was smart. After what seemed like an eternity, the man started to stir. Austra placed her hand on the trigger. He opened his eyes fully and yelped when he saw us both.

“Who are you? Gimme my gun back now!” He said in a threatening voice.

“Not unless you tell us where you hid the diamonds.” I said, trying not to be terrified.

“What diamonds? I don’t know any diamonds.” He replied.

“It would be best for you if talk honestly, you know. You might get shot accidentally if you lie” Austra’s voice was sweet as honey.

“Fine. I’ll tell you if I get my gun back. Deal?”

“Deal.” We both said.

“Mangrade Road, Kimberlee. It’s at the end of the road, a little cottage. Go upstairs and there will be a child’s room. It’s under the bed. I’ll give you the money for a taxi if you return my gun.” He handed us some notes and we both checked to see if they were real. They were.

“Now, my gun please.” He said, gesturing to Austra.

Our eyes met and we both thought the same thing, run for it. And we did. The thief tried to chase us, but he must have cut his leg on the rock when Austra pushed him over, because he couldn’t run at all. We found a taxi and gave the driver the address and off we were!

“Maybe now we can find our parents,” I thought. ” We are going to have money and we have the clues they left us.”

I also realised I left my bike at the rocks.


 

And that is the end! *applause* I left y’all with a cliffhanger, and maybe if I can use the prompts of Challenge 2 to fit in with the story, I will continue the story! But for now, I have a question:
