Enigma Necklace

Prologue

Alexis gazed out of the window and saw the giant, beastly airship ebbing closer. The ship’s engine roared like a lion, prepared to fight for dominance. He saw harpoons being shot through the air , like sword through skin. Alexis smelled smoke being produced from the sprouting fire clinging to the hull, lethal like snake venom. Pivoting towards his master, Alexis howled: a howl that pierced the sky like a bullet through a skull, “By all the ticking tock Peter, jump! They’re already here! Human lives first, not mechanimal’s!”

Chapter 1

Pushing the gates to the playground of Dana Doublegoody’s Academy for Talented Girls open, Ruby Stanford surveyed the area. Freedom was metres away. No one appeared to be here, but before she even thought to run, her feet were pounding across the playground at full pelt. She came to a halt on Crawforn Crescent to regain her lost breath. The girl leant back into a bush.

She withdrew the piece of paper from her pocket and skimmed through the gloom-bringing news once again. Papa, her father Peter, was presumed dead after his airship, Nymph, was discovered crashed. She kept lingering on 1 sentence. It was her father’s last recorded words, “Watch your neck.” When the letter first arrived, Ruby pondered what it meant. Her father had always been cryptic and mysterious, but this practically gibberish to her. Every day when she was at the academy, she thought about what this could mean. It troubled her.

Waking her up from her thoughts, a particular and distinctive howl reverberated in her head. Then, out of a hedge, came a grey, fluffy face that radiated warmth. Alexis!                                                                          “Well, little missy, you took your tocking time getting out of this place. My clockwork key’s round my neck, give me a wind would you? I used all my energy escaping those scoundrels.”                                          Ruby grabbed the key form Alexis’s neck and wound it. Alexis wagged his tail in joy. Some of his mane of fur was burnt or cut, but he was in an otherwise fine shape.

Later that evening, Luca was shocked to see Ruby and Alexis walking down the patch to Tweedy’s Horologists.                                                                                                                                                                        “So, it’s your necklace, your mother’s one,” he said.                                                                                                  Ruby confirmed with a sad nod. The necklace was a precious item, a treasure. It was something that her mother once cherished. Every night, she would hold it close to her before taking it off to go to sleep. Sometimes, she would play with the shells and stones that populated the necklace. She didn’t have it now, it was at the manor hidden in a box very well. She remembered the engravings on the three stones. The engravings were of Ruby’s, her mother’s and her father’s initials.                                                                 “Sorry,” Luca stated.

“He’s right,” announced Alexis, “We have to get back to Steelpass Manor quickly, before those scallywags can take the necklace and leave.”

The escape plan

Prologue

Doverrie glared out of the glass as the darkness grew out of the sky. She saw tiny parts of black rain down like snow on Christmas dawn. She heard the whisper of gasps from outside, like a runner after a long marathon. She sensed the bitter smoke from the engine as the darkness crept closer to the ship, like a black blanket covering a snow-like bed.

Glancing to her owner, Doverrie chirped “By all means Jack, it is time for you to jump! It’s humans before birds for love’s sake.”

Chapter 1- The escape plan

Carefully leaning against the back gate of Harvard Highschool, Jake Rivera examined the playground. Nobody seemed to be around and within seconds, Jake started sprinting towards Cheleston street and freedom. At the end of the street, Jake paused to a halt and reached onto an iron gate to regain his breath.

He opened up the package once more to read through the horrible news. His uncle, Alan Cartman, had his airship crash into an avalanche. It was very abnormal because his last words had been, “Spend your time wisely.” He had spent many nights trying to think about how he could fulfill this throughout life.

At that moment, he heard a quiet chirp and a snow-white tail come from the bushes. “My goodness Jack, you took your sweet time getting out didn’t you?” exhaled Doverrie.

“Give me a break Doverrie! I used up a lot of my time for you.” justified Jack, as he grabbed his bag back from the icy path ahead of them. “You ready to go now?”

That afternoon, Tilly was surprised to see Jake and Doverrie standing in front of McTackleman’s cafe. “Did the snowglobe get auctioned off Jake?” questioned Doverrie. Jake devastatingly nodded his head. The snowglobe was a special item that was gifted to Jack by his mother. He had held it in his hands every Christmas night to remind him of his mother. Though, sometimes it didn’t work due to him being as still as a beetle. On the edges of the snowglobe, they had been hand-painted by the owner of McTackleman’s cafe. It made a shatter of tears in Jack’s eyes. “Sorry,” muttered Tilly, looking up at Jack.

“Let’s not get carried away now children!” chirped Doverrie. “We need to take the train back to Dovesdale and begin the escapade before some gritty foxes decide to claim it as their own.”

Prologue and first chapter.

Rocky peered out of the dragonfly’s window as the golden airplane drew closer. He saw the ship’s trident twinkle in the sunshine like glossy diamonds. He heard the rumble of the cannons like a dinosaur’s breath. He sensed the fire coming closer and closer towards him. Turning to his master, Rocky purred, “it is time for you to jump! Humans before mechanicals!”

 

“ding ,ding” the school bell rang as Rosie ran as fast as a cheetah through the corridors of the Sacred Heart Academy. The lesson began and Rosie was right on time as usual. 3 hours later, the first lesson was finished! “class dismissed!” shouted Mrs Wolf as the whole 37 children ran out of the classroom. Rosie gazed across the playground but no one was there. She searched through all the corridors at the school but there was not a soul there. She knew it was the best time to get out of the torture. So she ran as fast as her legs could carry her. At the end of the road she paused and leaned against a wall to recover her breath.

 

She once again read the terrible letter. Her father, Kevin Sanford, was missing and his airplane destroyed. Rosie was devastated after she found out all about this. His last words to her were “I LOVE YOU”. Many days and nights she laid wide awake in her comfy bed and was thinking about him.

 

Just then, Rosie heard an identifying wuff and a well-known face appearing from some flowers behind her, “by all the ticks, you’ve taken a very long time to get out of that place!” said Rocky, “oh c’mon give me a wind-up will you? I have used up a lot of energy getting out of there. It is miles away. Why didn’t we meet somewhere that was closer huh?” 

Prologue and Chapter 1

Quinn glanced out of the dino beats window as the bus edged closer. She saw the giant T-Rex statue tower above the bus like a monster trying to eat people. She heard a robotic dino screech as loud as fireworks. She smiled the rotting garbage piles that stunk like a dragon’s  breath. Turning to her friend, Quinn muttered, “with all kindness Eve, this is our stop. I’ll head off after you.”

Kicking the back door of Dreamhigh Academy, Haelynn quickly checked her surroundings before sprinting towards Dreamton Lane and freedom. Near the end of the lane, she stopped to regain her breath then carried on running.

Yet again she unfolded the letter and read through the dreadful news. Her friend, Eve had gone missing in a strange alleyway. Her last words were rather confusing, “always straighten up.” The past few nights Haelynn remained awake thinking about what those words really meant.

Just then she heard an echo of a bark and a well known face appeared behind some trees. “My my, you sure did take quite a while to get out of this terrible place!” Said Quinn. “Give me a break will you? I’ve had to run past those sketchy alleyways and use all my strength.” Haelynn smirked as she gave the letter to Quinn.

On that afternoon, Robert was stunned to see Haelynn and Quinn standing in Leemsway street at the back of town. “Indeed, it is your Mothers ballerina music box.” He said. Haelynn slightly nodded. The music box was something her mother loved. She had put it on Haelynn’s desk in her bed room. Many nights Haelynn  stayed awake watching the ballerina sing it’s lullaby. Although Haelynn loved the box, the memory of her Mother was still painful. “Sorry.” Murmured Robert looking down.

“He is correct,” Quinn interrupted. “No time to waste. We need to head back to Bracken Bridge Manor and start our search before a thief lays their dirty paws on that box.”
