Fun Day 21/12

Time for the last part of "Kaya and the Missing Horse Mystory"!

Up and down, up and down Kaya went in the water, up and down gasping for air each time she came up.

"I’m not going to make it!” she thought as she went under again. As she came up she hit her head on something hard that was suspended above the water. One more time back under and a hand grabbed hers and pulled her up.

Kaya found herself lying on a bridge, with the rain pouring down and the water rushing under her, looking into the face of a strange girl.

"Are you OK?” she asked in a voice so sweet that the water didn’t sound so loud. Kaya nodded. “You must be cold. Come with me to my house and we will get you in some fresh clothes.” said the new girl as she helped Kaya to her feet.

Kaya shivered as they walked along with the rain pouring down on them.

"You know, I don’t think I told you my name!” the new girl said as they rounded a corner. “My name is Jasmine Keller. I live just up the road. What’s your name?”

"I’m Kaya Royer. I live over on the hill.” Jasmine smiled and just for a second the moon peeked out from behind a cloud and shown on her black hair and lit up her face. Kaya smiled back.

As they went up the drive way Jasmine said “I’ll let you borrow one of my dresses. You’re about my size.”

After Kaya and Jasmine had changed into dry clothes and had hung their wet ones by the fire, they sat down on the living room rug to talk.

"I can’t thank you enough!” Kaya said “How did you hear my cry from why up here?”

"Oh I wasn’t up here when I heard your cry. I didn’t even hear you!” Jasmine said grinning.

"You didn’t?” .

"No. I was at my fort in the woods and was heading home when I was crossing the bridge I saw you. What were you doing out here?”

"I was looking for my horses. Have you seen them?”

"Well, what do they look like?”

"Well one is black with a white strip on her nose and the other one is brown.”

"Yep. I’ve seen them.”


"In my barn.”



"OH I was so worried about them!”

"Well you had a right to be with the humans and all.”

"Can we go see them?”

"I think we can. The rain has stopped”

"Kaya changed back into her clothes and then when with Jasmine to the barn.

"Thank you so much for taking care of the horses.” Kaya said.

"You’re welcome! Come back soon!” Jasmine called as Kaya rode off on Steps High into the night. Kaya covered ground much more quickly on horseback. After they arrived home Kaya washed the horses down, put them in the closet and shut the door. TIGHT.

Two weeks later it was time for Shantel to return Mocha to the Hawbaker’s. It would be good to hear about Rebecca’s vacation. Kaya climbed into the car and Rebecca gave her a big hug and said. “I had so much fun on our trip! I think I am finely beginning to understand my sister.”

Kaya giggled. “Are you sure? Sisters are complicated people.”

Rebecca nodded. “Yes I think I am. I will have to tell you all about it. But first you tell me what happened while I was gone.” And Kaya just grinned!

*The End*

We hope you enjoyed this story! Come back next week for the Next story in the Series!

Ask Abbie 17/12

Dear Abbie,
Teh girl who sits next to me in class cheats off my paper! Our teacher told her to stop, but the girl said she didn't cheat. I can't move so what can I do?
Not Fair

Talk to your teacher again. This time, ask if you can use a blank cover sheet. As you take the test slide the cover sheet over your test so no one can see the answers. If your teacher won't let you do that, try writing smaller and folding the top part of your paper over as you work. Witha little luck, your neighbor will find it easier to do her ownwork than to copy yours. From the american girl magazine.

Verse of the Week 15/12

Psalm 17
 1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
 2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
 3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
 4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
 5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
 6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
 7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
 8 ¶ Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
 9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
 10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
 11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
 12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
 13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
 14 From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
 15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
