ABC Tag!!!

Hey guys! Hope you all had a great weekend…we know we did!!! So we had a writing assignment for school and well, it was so fun and cool we decided to make a tag!!! Jaidie and Kayti both did the tag and Rissy was busy so she helped the other two out of tight spots when they got stuck. (Man, talking about ourselves in third person is so weird…lol…)

So without further ado we introduce you to the ABC Tag!!!

  4. Nominate 7 bloggers or writers to do the challenge!
  5. Have fun! (And try not to get stuck on x and z….lol…)

Jaidie’s ABC Story!

A loud scream split the air around me.

Breathing heavily  I came to a halt, glancing at the direction the sound had come from.

Cautiously I changed direction and started walking towards the sound.

Drawing ever near to the noise, I started to feel uneasy, but my curiosity drove me on.

Every step carried me closer to the sound, closer to possible danger.

Fear slowly crept into my mind and I stopped, maybe this wasn’t a good idea after all.

Glancing towards the area the sound was coming from, I slowly started to back away.

Heavy footsteps sounded behind me, I froze.

I couldn’t make myself move, I felt stuck in place, unable to move.

Just when I thought I would never move again my feet started working, carrying me away from the footsteps behind.

Keep running, I told myself, just keep running and I’ll be able to get away.

Longing to get away I forced myself to run even faster, fear gripping me.

Moving swiftly through the dark forest the echoing footsteps seemed to follow my every move.

Nothing, there felt like there was nothing I could do to get away from this shadow that seemed to be glued to me.

Over and under I zigzagged through the fallen trees, my breaths coming in quick ragged gasps.

Pounding in my ears, my heart hammered against my chest, I was exhausted but I could not stop.

Quickly the shadow copied my movements, staying close behind me no matter what I did to get rid of it.

Running as fast as I could, I still could not shake the shadow off.

Suddenly my legs gave up on me and I toppled to the ground, gasping.

Tired from running, I lay there taking in gulps of much-needed air.

Unfortunately, the shadow did not stop, it weaved through trees, coming straight for me.

Voices sounded in my head, familiar voices, it was my own voice I heard, sad, angry, and hurt.

Watching the shadow get ever closer, I understood everything.

Xavier, that was me, that was shadow too, it was me.

Younger me, the me who had done awful things, but now I understand everything, this was a test to see how I liked to be terrified even haunted by someone.

Zya, I’m so sorry, I whispered, I understand now, I’m so sorry for everything I did, and then just like that the shadow was gone, but not only that my burden was also gone.

Kayti’s ABC Story!

After the darkness had fallen, I had never imagined there would be a way out.

Before yesterday, I had never dreamed I could escape, it was simply something I had believed to be impossible.

Could I truly escape?

Did a way out really exist?

Everyone told me that I could leave anytime, that my imprisonment was my own doing.

Frankly, I didn’t believe them, they said it was all in my mind, but the prison felt real to me.

Guarded by fears.

Harassed by doubts.

I felt like I was losing my mind, and maybe I was.

Just this morning I had thought perhaps the darkness was ebbing, but then it came back with a force so strong it nearly suffocated me.

Knowing what I do now, I wonder why this darkness is in me, why do I let it stay?

Let it live inside me and control me when I could make it leave.

My thoughts swirled and twirled above the blackness of my soul, the prison inside that I had created.

Nothing I did seemed to fill the darkness or make the void leave.

Oh, why could I not escape?

Perhaps it was that part of me liked the darkness and the secrecy therein, or maybe it was too strong.

Quite possibly it was the fact that I was weak, so very weak, and had not the strength to make the darkness leave.

Resounding like an echo in my soul came the reply.

Strong, you are stronger than you know.

Taking my courage in hand, I stood taller, bolder, stronger ready to make the darkness leave.

Underneath a sky of brilliant blue, I fought the darkness that dwelled in me.

Villain and hero inside me fought, both hoping to lay claim to my soul.

When I thought surely the battle I had lost, a burst of light upon my soul made me fall to my knees as a voice of beauty said my name.

‘Xane,’ it was said so tenderly.

‘You are mine, child; you gave your heart to me and the darkness I have put to flight.’

Zealous with the light and joy that was now mine, with the freedom I felt, I jumped to my feet and looked to the sky with tears in my eyes.

Tah-dah!!!! Hope you guys liked those! Let us know what you thought in the comments!!!! Also, as a side note, we hit 60 followers!!!! Woohoo!!!!! Now we’re going for seventy!!!

Hi, we're Kayti, Rissy, and Jaidie, a writing trio of sisters, living in the Southern Appalachians of Western NC. The three of us are as thick as thieves as they say, whoever "they" are. We have four older siblings, a controlling German Shorthaired Pointer named Ruger, and a Mini Lop rabbit named Smallsy-Jo. We're homeschooled by our amazing mom, proud of it too, and our dad was a pastor until the fall of 2020 when he decided to resign and spend more time with the last three birds in the nest, that's us. Our dad encouraged us to start writing after he heard an elaborate story we made up to act out with our extensive collection of little horse figures (yeah, we collect them, don't judge we have like over 200). Anyway, so we started writing things down, and eventually the things we wrote down actually made sense and now we're writers! Or aspiring writers anyway.

  3. Wow, so good! I recently learned (for school) about abc poems! And I’ve done one – that x, y and z part is very hard!
    GREAT job, guys! I loved the inner conflict in both, and of course the resolution in them. They remind me of The Wingfeather Saga, this part when:
    “Janner shuddered. That deep, hungry darkness scared him because he felt it too, though he found he wasn’t afraid of falling into it, not when he thought of his family. It was as if, between himself and that inner darkness, there were many arms reaching out to catch him, arms like the branches of a tree, there to break his fall and give his hands and feet purchase.” -North! Or Be Eaten
    I love that quote.
    Anyway, sorry for the long comment but this is too GREAT!!! 😀 Sounds like that school is fun.
