Gingerbread Soldiers of Godzilla
By S. F. Brooke
Eve looked around the corn fields. Not a single mouse was around. “It’s not fair!” She screamed. “Mother Avesith always finds food! But I just can’t!” She sat down on the dirt road. She looked back at the Moon Palace. Silas, the Prince of the Moon Tribe was probably sitting at the dinner table eating food that was just delivered to him. Yes, he can order food. Because his family has money. Eve’s doesn’t.
Eve saw a fat rabbit cross the road. She crouched and crawled behind it. She then lunged. But, the rabbit had already scurried away just in time. “Darn it!” She stomped her foot.
The Moon Tribe girl began to walk along the dirt road. A silhouette began forming in the distance. The sunset was casting a beautiful view on the sky. But it was beginning to be shady around the forest area.
“Who is that?” Eve asked herself.
The silhouette got closer, revealing a brown haired boy, Silas.
“Eve!” He shouted. She gasped and began running away. Mother Avesith always said to stay away from the Royals. They were capable of anything, torture, pain, and death. Even the smallest of them could have their wishes fulfilled. “Eve, I won’t hurt you. I promise!” Silas called out. Eve turned around. Then, her bun came undone. “Shoot.” She whispered. She had never worn her hair down. Mother Avesith said it looked weird down. If ever she wanted to find love, Mother Avesith had said, she would have to keep her hair up, to look ‘pretty’. Eve’s black hair swished and swooshed as she ran. “Please Eve, I must tell you something!” Silas called. Eve stopped. She looked back. “Eve, I’ve held this in for a while.” He said. “I see you rummaging through our garbage every night, and it’s time I admit it.” Silas said. Eve blushed. Had she really been that obvious about the garbage stealing? “I love you.” He said. “M-Me?” She asked. “Yes, I really do. You’re so beautiful, and… I love you!!” Silas said. “No Silas, you can’t mean that.” Eve said. “I’m a poor girl, my family has no money! You can’t love me!” Eve explained. “Eve, my family doesn’t care who I love. As long as they are part of the Moon Tribe.” Silas explained. “Silas, I’m sorry. I can’t. I’d be a burden on your family, and my Mother… well, she’d use you guys.” The girl said. “I don’t care Eve, I’ll do anything to be with you.” Silas smiled, reaching out his hand. Do it for your family. Eve thought. She took his hand, and they walked back to the Moon Palace.

I’m so sorry you guys, since the writing platform is closing, I can’t share my stories anymore
Just for fellow writers here, please know that if you right-click on your mouse, or click the bottom right corner of your finger pad, you will get the option to inspect. Click inspect and when it opens you should see a bunch of words and coding. The first few words you see should be your story code. If they are not, drag your mouse over the code until your writing turns blue. Then, copy (ctrl + c) and paste (ctrl + v) onto a real writing platform (Microsoft Word, Google Docs, etc.) I hope this helped you fellow writers who can’t re-write their stories in the time you have left. Disclaimer: When you paste the writing, you may see a bunch of code beside your writing. Not worry! Simply delete the codes, and there. Your story is saved.

Hi Katie, if you want to, I’m on another writers community called the story craft cafe. It’s more of a chat forum than a sharing platform, but you can still share stories if you want.
