I sat in my bed watching my younger sister Juno play with her tiger cub Tara. The cub bounced and played around. Then I noticed  the fur of Zola brush up against my arm. Zola was a special creature. She was a fox that was bright orange and white, with wings the color of the sun. She was small but she was not super young, but at the same time she wasn't very old. She was a complicated animal. “Hey Zola.” Myra pronounced. Myra then heard the loud noises of the bombs. War. BAM! BOOM! CRASH! Zola heard them too and she ran to Myra. Myra looked at her mom with fear then she asked. “Mom what do we do the war is drawing near.” Suddenly there was a crash of a window. A bomb was thrown in the castle! Everyone scurried and then it blew. Myra went flying threw the air holding Zola in her arms. She looked to see half the castle falling. Then looked over to see flames coming from every direction! She made herself into a ball and hid Zola in the middle. Then she hit the ground. After about 5 hours Myra awoke unable to stand but she still had Zola safe and sound in her arms. She looked around. Her sister Juno was just waking up to see both her parents dead. Juno then looked at Myra and started to cry. She grabbed Tara and they cuddled until Juno stopped crying. Myra tried to get up but when she did she felt pain and fell back down. Myra looked down and noticed that her leg was gone! It must have burned in the fire she thought. Myra knew she could never be seen again so both girls parted ways. Juno was 17 so she knew how to take care of herself, and her plan was to rebuild the kingdom and become queen. Myra was 20 so it was obvious that she could do the same. Before she could leave to start a new life Myra spotted a man who had once fought in the war. Luckily he was trying to protect the castle not burn it down. He ran to Myra. He pulled out a prosthetic leg from his bag. “We  are all armed with these before the war just in case.” He attached the leg to Myra, and Myra stood up and grabbed Zola. Myra thanked him and headed towards the woods. She was going to start a new life in the shadows.
 
Chapter 2
Myra was walking toward a beautiful waterfall “Water” She thought then spotted a bear cave but this cave was huge! Big enough for Myra and Zola. Myra ran in the bear cave screaming and waving her arms so the bears would leave, but there were no bears. Myra just shrugged and took a look around. The cave was way bigger on the inside then on the outside. It was perfect. In the far corner of the cave Myra started to sit down and she called Zola over. Zola trotted over and went to sleep by Myra. Then Myra drifted off. When they awoke Myra commanded Zola to stay at home while Myra set a trap to catch some food. She walked out and grabbed some sturdy vines and set up a trap. The trap was made to trip an animal then the animal would fall in a hole that was covered in leaves. Myra “glued” the leaves together with mud she found by the waterfall. Then Myra started carving a spear. Once the stick was done she searched for a sharp rock. “Ouch!” Myra stepped on something that was super sharp! She looked down and saw an extremely sharp piece of coal. “This Will do”  she thought. She took some extra vines she had from the trap and tied the rock onto the stick she had worked on. “A SPEAR!!!” She yelled. Myra walked inside and set the spear by the wall. Then she had a great idea. She bolted outside. Luckily the trap was by the cave not right in front so Myra could get out without worry of falling in. She ran over to a tree which had a piece of bark that was curled in the shape of a hook. “Perfect.” She thought. She jumped up but couldn't reach it “UUUU GGGG!!!!” She yelled. Then Myra remembered Zola! Of course Zola could fly up there and pull off the piece of bark from the tree! “ZOLA ZOLA!” Myra yelled. Then she saw Zola flying up towards the bark! She grabbed it with her teeth then took it back down to Myra. Myra took the bark and some really sticky mud she had found earlier and smeared it to the back like glue. She then stuck the piece of bark to the wall of the cave and then hung the spear up on the hook! Her little house was coming together. Myra then heard the crying sounds of her stomach. She was very hungry and needed food! She grabbed her spear and ran towards the waterfall to fish. She then took her spear and jabbed at a fish. She pulled it back up out of the water. YUM! she thought. Before Myra could eat the fish she knew she had to cook it. She gathered some small and dry sticks and put them in a pile. Then she realized that she needed something to start a fire.

 

She knew the only way to start a fire is to go to the town to buy supplies. So Myra put on her hood and headed toward the town. Once she had got there she realized a fairly familiar face. “JUNO! My sister was here and now- but would Juno remember me? Its been at least 6 years!” Myra thought. She realized its better not to take her chances with such humiliation. So Myra just kept walking to buy the supplies. After she had gotten her stuff she started to head back to the cave- then “MYRA! MYRA!” Myra turned so she could see who was calling her name. “Juno? Juno really remembered me? BUT HOW!!?!?!?!” Myra thought. Then she saw Juno charging toward her with Tara following behind. “JUNO!! TARA!!” Myra yelled. “I am soooooooo excited to see you guys!” Myra started to cry with happiness. She picked up the cub and spun around with her. Then gave her sister a HUGE hug. “HERE FOLLOW ME TO MY HOME!” Yelled Myra. Myra led the group threw the woods and to the cave. “Wow you have a pretty nice setup here.” Juno explained while examining the waterfall. “Yeah it's what I like to call home!” Myra led them into the cave and that's when Tara and Zola saw each other. Tara ran and Zola flew over and they played around for a while. Juno examined the mud and how it was dry and rock solid. And the hook made of tree bark. She observed the bed and how it was made entirely of leaves stuck together by mud. And the pillow was just a bunch of leaves tied together with a vine! And how the shelves were made of slits in the cave walls!Juno was amazed. “WOW! I JUST WOW I’M SPEECHLESS.” Juno laughed at the fact that she was a proper queen who was amazed by leaves tied, and glued together by mud and vines. And that it was appealing to her that her once princess sister is now living in a black sweatshirt, torn jeans, a bear cave, and a bunch of leaves! But it was pretty cozy in there and the mud and vines were very creative. Juno knew she could NEVER live like this but I guess she knew all along that her sister could. She would always say as a kid “Myra you are going to live in the woods while I become queen!” “So did you make these slits in the cave?” Juno asked. “No, they were there when i got to cave.” Myra explained how everything was made. Juno realized that she had to be on her way. So both pet and girl said their goodbyes and parted ways for the very last time.
