The Pharaohs Cup
“I’m the most bored I have ever been in my entire life.” I groaned, while sitting half asleep at my desk.
“ It’s not that boring.” Emma replied.
“ uuuuuuummm . . . Yes it is.” said Cam annoyed.
“well maybe try listening for once then”.
“na, I’m good” replied cam with a smirk on his face.
“UM!” You three at the back what did I just say was your project was about?”
Me and Cam didn’t even know we had a project, but luckily Emma responded, and knew exactly what we were supposed to do.
Alright then, you will be in groups of two or three and you must have decided which Egyptian artifact you are doing your project on by tomorrow's class. Class dismissed” Mr.Smith said as the bell rang.
Me, Cam, and Emma head to my house where our tree house is. We all struggle to move up the ladder.
“Finally,” Cam said, relieved as he entered the tree house. The tree house is small but somehow we got a couch up there, it’s pretty cozy in there and there are pictures of our favorite bands and stuff. We all plop down on the couch and look up Egyptian artifacts. “All this garbage is boring” Cam said “ ooh, click on that” he leaned over and grabbed the laptop from me
“ heeeeeeeeeey!” I screamed.
Meanwhile, Cam just ignored me and clicked on a link that read “ Lost Egyptian artifact, cash prize!” The article said that an Egyptian artifact had been stolen many years ago by a group of people who were jungle pirates, they lived outside of Egypt in a jungle and were really good at hiding, that’s why the Egyptians were never able to take it back.
“Let’s go find it!” cam blurted out.
“ Are you insane!?!” I shouted
Then Emma said “well it would be good for our project, plus we would be rich!”
“True” I replied. I thought for a second then said “well, we better find a boat, it's a long way from California to Egypt!”
The next day we made our way to the boat dock.
“ I can get us a speed boat,” I said.
“ But that will take us too long,” Emma replied, so we needed to “borrow” a boat. We saw a huge boat that was just unloading and the captain was busy arguing for more money, so we snuck on the ship and took off. We could hear the captain shouting at us as we left the dock. We knew it would take like two weeks to get there. We were getting weird and awkward looks from other boat drivers but I guess they weren’t just going to ignore 12 year old kids driving a huge, gigantic boat. We could see land and a jungle so we new we were close but then the ship started veering to the left we looked over and saw a huge whirlpool I tried to get the boat to turn around but the Whirlpool Was to strong it was pulling us in, then without thinking I yelled
“ We’re going under. JUMP!”
and we all jumped off the boat and got far enough away from the whirlpool.
“ Well I guess we won’t be returning that boat,” said Cam.
“I guess not” Emma and I replied”
we made our way to the land and set up a fire and went to sleep. In the morning we woke up, and to our surprise we were in cages. I vaguely remember being carried down a path in the dark,
“WHO ARE YOU” demanded Emma
I looked around and saw people but not normal like you and me. They were different.
they replied “We are the jungle pirates, what brings you here.”
“Well . . . We came to find the Pharaohs cup and return it to the Egyptians after we use it for our project.” Cam said nervously
“ The Pharaoh's cup was not stolen from them, we took it back from those cheating liars. you see . . . a long time back we encountered the Egyptians and they challenged us to a duel. Their best fighter came and ours stepped up too. It was a good fight but in the end we won, and took our trophy which they called the pharaohs cup, but the next day it was gone we knew that they had taken it, so we waited a few months so they would not be expecting it and successfully stole the cup back. But the Egyptians were furious and were determined to take it from us again. They attacked our jungle, we decided to hide and not to fight them because we were out manned and out weaponed. They never found us even though several have tried, none have succeeded in stealing the cup for the Egyptians.”
“Wow!” I finally said “that’s, so cool”
“Well you guys should keep the cup but can I at least get a picture for our project?” Emma asked
“Sure!” they replied
Emma took the picture then we headed back to the beach, the jungle pirates gave us a boat and we went home. When we got back we were just in time to present our project and to my surprise Mr.smith believed and we p
its the rest of the story:
When we got back we were just in time to present our project and to my surprise Mr.smith believed and we passed, Cam was especially happy it's the first project this year that he passed. It's too bad that we aren’t rich but now we and our class I guess, are the only people in the world that know the truth.
All of us came out of the forest running from the kidnappers we ran in my house and it turned dark and when we got in my house. Then Baggy said “who are those guys”. I don't know said Hilson. “Wonder who they are” said James. then we heard the door slam open, all of us are up, and we are all scared. We heard someone coming up the stairs, the door knob turning slowly then in a flash my friends had vanished. I tried not to think about it in the morning. My parents did not wake up when it happened. They didn't believe me when I told them, so I set off on a journey to try and find my friends. It will be scary and it will be really hard to find them. The First place I went was the forest but there was nothing. The second place I went to was my friends house and Baggy said “do you know where hilson and James could have got kidnapped and placed” then found out that they had a bunker in the forest so I went there and followed the map that Hilson's parents gave me and then I found it, the bunker. It was huge. The bunker was as big as a real underground bunker so I went in and saw them sitting in 2 chairs. I was scared as heck wondering who was under the mask and then I saw it was both of their dads. Now I am really surprised. Then I see them walking over to me and both of their dads saying “happy birthday” and then I remember what they said that night. I have a special surprise in the morning.
“thanks guys” says Baggy THE END.
