School

Written and illustrated by Amal


Michael is in grade 9. Ava is in grade 2. Emma and Emily are in grade 6. Ruby is in grade 8. Rose is in kindergarten. Sophia is in grade 5. Chris is in grade 4. Oliver is in grade 1. Liam is in grade 7. Lucas is in grade 3. James is in grade 3 because he got held back when he got D’s and F’s on his report card. William  is in preschool. Isabella is in grade  10. Mia is in grade 11.

Everyone goes to school. It is the first day! Everyone gets ready and is feeling happy. Emily and Emma race each other to school with all their speed. They get to school in a second and are one hour earlier than everyone else. Everyone else gets to school on time. 

When they are in class the grade 6‘s are not allowed to use their phones – only 7th graders and 8th graders can use phones. At noon, everyone goes to lunch and most people eat the same thing: pasta! Some people have lasagna, or pizza, or tuna. 

After lunch, it is class time. The grade 6 people have math and grade 7’s and 8’s have science (they do lots of experiments). Then everyone goes home. Emma and Emily go back home with their teleporting powers. Everyone else goes home in Mia’s car. 

Today is the day when their parents come home! Emma, Emily, Mia, Isabella, Ruby, Rose, Ava, Michael, James, Liam, Lucas, Oliver, Chris, and Sophia and William all go downstairs to see their mom and dad. 

Everyone shouted, “I missed you!” 

Mom and Dad were proud of Mia who took care of everyone in the house. Emma and Emily went outside for a walk. Then they realized that they’d forgotten about Mia’s birthday tomorrow. Isabella went to get a cake. Mia loves ice cream and oreo cake. The Mom and Dad did the decorations.

James gave all of Mia’s friends invitations. Lucas kept Mia from going inside the house. Mia saw that a window was open. She climbed a tree and snuck into the house. She ended up in Emma’s and Emily’s room. Everything was floating and it scared her!

Mia screamed, “AHHHHH!”

Emma and Emily ran into the room and asked “What’s wrong?” 

Mia asked, “Why are these objects floating?” 

Emma and Emily tell her that they have powers, then they tell her not to go in the living room until tomorrow. 

“Okay,” said Mia.

The next day Mia woke up. She was turning 17 years old.

Ava said, “Mia’s coming! Hide!” 

Everyone hid. Mia went downstairs to have breakfast. She saw that someone made her breakfast. 

“Thank you,” said Mia.

Then they all popped out and yelled, “Happy birthday Mia!”

Mia turned around and said thanks with a smiling  face 😊

Isabella said, “We did this for you”. 

Mia said, “Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.”

A glowing light went to Mia, Michael, Liam, and Isabella. 

Emily and Emma both said at the same time, “You are getting powers!” 

“What?” Mom and Dad asked. 

“Uuummmm. Nothing,” said Emily.

“Come on, tell us the truth!” 

“Okay,” said Emily, “look, Mom and Dad. Don’t freak out, okay?” 

“Alright. We won’t freak out, we promise,”  said their Mom, “really!”

Emma told them about their powers and said, “Sorry for lying,”

“It’s okay,” said their Mom, “we have also been hiding something. We have powers too! You got powers because of us.”

“Oh,” said Emma and Emily. 

Then Mia got a wand and could talk to animals. Now Mia had the same powers as Emma and Emily. Sometimes Emily and Emma would become ninjas, or good spies.
