Touching the Horizon Chapter 2!

Greetings Jammers- Arctic here!

Sorry about not being able to post last week- luckily I found my phone, and all is well. How are you doing?

I've been a bit busy lately- my birthday was on the 7th, and it's been hectic with exams! Still not done school...

Alright! Anyway, it is time for Chapter 2 of my story "Touching the Horizon"
If you missed Chapter 1, you can read it here!

Touching the Horizon

Chapter Two: But What Next?

I eventually woke up. My vision was still blurry from having fallen face first into the grass, and it was impossible to make out what was going on. I realized that something had a tight grip on my shoulders, and three figures loomed over me, gradually coming into focus...

My first instinct, of course, was to panic. Everything ached, but I kicked and flailed anyway. There was no way I was getting kidnapped on my first day in Jamaa!

"ARCTIC, CUT IT OUT!" a familiar voice yelled

"At least she's awake - she's been out cold for at least an hour!" another voice replied

"THAT'S NO REASON TO KICK ME IN THE FACE!" the first voice replied angrily

"Arctic, stop kicking Ja, it's alright!" a third voice jumped in.

Ja? That meant that the second voice would be Sarah's, and Gracie must be the third! Relieved, I stopped my frantic self-defense, and sat up to see my three great buddies sitting there. Apart from Ja, who was still cross that she had gotten my heel to her face, they all looked relieved.

"We're so glad you're alright! You've been out for at least an hour now, after you came shooting out of that portal!" Gracie said

"Phew, thank goodness you're okay! Not going to lie, though, it was definitely funny to watch you fly out of the portal like that!" Sarah agreed

"You might be okay, but Gracie's lawn sure isn't. Just look at the crater you left!" Ja exclaimed

Sure enough, there was a raccoon shaped hole in the ground several metres away from a teal portal. The ground around it was scorched, and some steam was still rising from the centre of it.

"Eh... Whoops... Sorry about that" I mumbled

"Nevermind that" Sarah interrupted "We have other things to discuss! Did you suddenly wake up in your Animal Jam den too?" she asked

"Yep. The same thing happened to you guys?" I replied, as they all nodded.

This strange set of circumstances was equal parts terrifying and exciting. It made me feel a bit better to have my friends around, at least.

"Weirrrrdddd" we all said in unison.

"So what now?" Ja asked, breaking the awkward silence.

"We're gonna figure this out the right way- with our friends." Gracie answered as she made her way over to her portal.

Hearts in our throats, we all held each other's paws as we stepped into the violet light.


Hope you liked the new chapter! Sorry it got a bit cheesy with all the friendship stuff - I still think it turned out alright! Whose den do you think we're going to next? What do you think is going to happen? Tell me in the comments below!

I've gotta get going, but not before I give you the daily verse!

Our verse today is from Luke 6:42:

"How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."

Now the whole thing with specks and logs might sound weird at first, but when you really think about it- there's a great message here. This verse encourages us to not be so nit-picky about others, but to realize that we all have issues. Become a better person yourself before trying to make others better! Words to live by!

See you next week!
