Once Upon a Time
By Kate Wood
Francis, the chef, brought a silver platter in. A turkey lay on it. “Mmm! Looks so delicious!” Lyan smiled. “Oh yes, Francis here makes the best of foods.” Mother said, rubbing her hands together. “Caroline, your family is so sweet!” Lyan touched her hand to Mother’s shoulder. “Oh, thanks!” Mother giggled. Francis went back into the kitchen and came back with another tray. This time, a yummy-looking lobster was splayed out, with a delicious salad around it.
After half an hour, the guests began leaving. “We were wondering… could Antoine stay over tonight?” Lyan tilted her head slightly. “Of course! He can stay in the guest-” Mother was cut off. “He can stay in Anya’s room,” Father said. Anya shivered. Antoine looked at her. “Are you okay? Your face is red.” Antoine asked. Anya shivered again. “Yeah, I’m fine. I think I’ll just… I’ll go to bed early.” Anya smiled and waved goodbye to the guests.
The princess raced up the staircase, she then tripped on her heels. “Ow!” She cried out. “Anya? Are you okay?” Antoine ran up the stairs. “Yes, I just tripped.” She took her heels off. “I’m okay. I promise.” Anya kissed his cheek and then continued going up the stairs. “Okay…” Antoine turned around and left. Anya ran through the corridor. And then up another flight of stairs. Then, through the next hallway, and down a small corridor. Anya swung open the door to her bedroom.
Pulling off her dress, she put her pyjamas on.
Anya began crying.

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.
