My story Part 1
Dash stared blankly at his math homework, then crumbled up the paper and threw it into his wastebasket. Apart from him struggling with math on a regular basis , Dash had been distracted ever since his discovery. Last night while exploring the forest outside his backyard, he sound an extraordinary band of trees that were intertwined together into a circle. He desperately wanted to examine it closer, but it started to rain and soon enough thunder and lighting shook the sky, forcing him to go home.
This was another problem that kept Dash thinking. So many strange events had been happening, freak storms in Colorado where Dash lived, horrible wars raging in Africa, an incurable plague in Russia, spreading into China, and many more disasters. All of this made Dash very concerned, and scared.
Dash isn't your average 13 year old. He'd rather be outside than indoors playing video games any day. Being outside all day was probably what made him so tan, and had his hair bleached out. Dash was also home-schooled. The reason his parents, professors at the local college, decided to teach him themselves was because Dash also had dyslexia, so when he read the words would start falling off the page. With him at home, Dash was able to work easily and explore.
"Dash! Can you come and help me carry these boxes in?" his father called. Since Dash's dad was a science professor he was always bringing wild projects to his workshop at home. Dash quickly rushed over to help his dad carry an especially large box with the 'FRAGILE' written in bold letters. He had always loved helping his dad, it was his favorite part of homeschooling.
After Dash heaved the box he was carrying onto the counter, he asked, "So dad, what crazy monster did you bring home this time?'
"Oh," his father laughed, "just some new beakers and such." Dash rolled his eyes, obviously not believing him. "Come on outside, I've got a surprise for you out in the car." Dash had to jog to keep up with his dad, who really excited to show Dash's surprise.
Ok end of this part of the story. I can't quite figure out what the surprise should be. The rest of the book is about how dash goes on a quest to save his world, and some others. A friend of mine told me it sounds like zelda, which it does. So i'm thinking i need some sort of tool as the surprise, or a weapon. Any ideas?
