In the distance I hear
In the distance I see sparks
I can feel strong whirling
The water is swelling,
In the distance I hear
The lights are flashing,
I can tell a storm is coming.

and sorrowful, panicked and unnerved she walked into the repulsive school.
Hibiscus timidly waIked past taunting voices and prankish faces, toward her
first class. But with hair as dark as her past she was constantly reminded by
her cruel peers of her parent's fateful death. If they hadn't gone on an exotic
cruise, if she had been brave, to go with them, if there had not been an ice
berg, then none of this would be happening. However, Hibiscus had been left
with her grandma Julie.
Bursting through the vibrant colourful doors into the
lively yet odd house, Hibiscus gladly met her Grandma's wide-open arms. She
wiped away the forlorn salty liquid that lay on her face. After having the
struggles of the day explained to her, Julie decided it was time to test her
broad creativity skills. A lot of sequins, glitter, fabric and time later there
was a dress fit for a popstar, which was ready to raise Hibiscus's confidence and
her profile at school. It shone like dragon's scales and its colours were as
crazy as the sweetest candy. Julie slipped it under
Hibiscus's door while her Granddaughter shrieked at the sight of it.
"Hibiscus please try it on and show me," Julie pleaded, ‘No No No No No!" she yelped. After much
persuasion and promises it was decided, she would wear it the next day. Julie
knew she had made the right dress for her loved one.
next day Hibiscus walked cautiously but this time she wore a dress that
glimmered like a thousand stars and flowed like the purest of water. Hibiscus
did not think so, especially when a group of nefarious girls came along. Their
pernicious words licked at her heart with hatred until they lashed out
viciously, ripping at her mind and scraping at her dress, shedding her blood
that point on Hibiscus was never the same. She thrived in the school life and
she stood up for herself, because she knew she could not let people treat her
like a boxing bag. But she still had one problem. Hibiscus had no friends.
after, Hibiscus was strolling down the corridor toward the cafeteria, but a
hand suddenly reached for her shoulder gripping it tightly. Before an elated
voice questioned "would you like to come sit with us?" Smiling and
giggling, laughing and chatting they walked hand in hand toward the doors.

wind blew in my face as I looked up at the giant temple. "Are you going to
use your weird super powers or not?" said Sparkle. "Sparks, I only
let you have that name if you would be quiet when I did my missions, I need
your brains for technology, not your questions" I said.
I am about to put you on pause, then I am going to get the Angels Eye" I
said. I knew that this was my hardest mission ever, I was about to reclaim the
Angels Eye, the biggest diamond on earth from the clutches of TAE aka the alliance
I pulled out my grappling hook and zoomed up to the roof of
the museum. Looking around, all I saw was roof tiles, dust and a dead pigeon or
two. I took a moment of silence for the pigeons before I whispered into my
headset "Sparks, take down the security cameras".
The cool wind brushed in my face while I drilled a hole in
the roof and jumped through, knowing all the guards had left. Running through
the museum, left then right, through corridors of jars, scrolls and ancient
vases I hear Sparks in my headset. " Ok Helix, the vault is right up
ahead, go quietly and be careful of the laser beams evil TAE ruler Count Cooper
has set up".
I dodged as the laser
beam shot past my ear and quickly scurried to the vault. "Sparks, I'm at
the vault, do your thing" I said. I watched as the vault keypad turned
green and swished open revealing the glowing Angels Eye.
grab the diamond and get out of here before the alarms go off, you have 60
seconds" Sparkle whispered. I grabbed the diamond and scooped it into my
bag just in time to see, one of TAE's agents appear and throw a metal ninja
star at me, my bag went flying but just before it hit the floor I scoop it up
and throw the bag at the ninja's head knocking it out.
look a book about Ancient drawings" I said, "it better be more
interesting than a diamond bigger than my head" said Sparks.
think you win that one Sparks", I say as I jump back through the hole as
the alarms go off.
Running through the maze
of TAE agents while zapping them out of the way, I hope Sparks can hear me
whisper "I need the getaway vehicle NOW". Yes Helix, it is arriving
in 25sec I hear through my headset. Running forward towards the never ending
sea of TAE agents, I see the spaceship arrive
- first class thanks Sparks.
smile as I jump into the spaceships cockpit - this will go back to its rightful
