Chapter One: Milo

Hello! I’ve been working on a story for a couple of months now, and I’m going to try to post one chapter every week or so, and I’ll see how that goes. I don’t even have a title for this story yet, but I’ll figure one out later… Anyways, I hope you enjoy the start of the story, and I’d love to hear your feedback!

Chapter One: Milo

Milo Gabel was mad. Why did his sister Wendy, who was only 4 years older than him get to do all the cool stuff, while he was stuck at some stupid camp. His best friend Samara would get back from her grandparents house later that day, and he couldn’t wait. When Wendy was off doing cool stuff, like rock climbing, bungee jumping, or backpacking, like she was now, there was nothing to do at home. Milo had begged his parents to go with her, but they said that he was too little and would hold her back, so that’s how Wendy ended up backpacking alone in the wilderness with only a tiny gps tracker as a clue for her location, and Milo was stuck at a nature camp, with a bunch of little kids who actually thought building fairy houses was fun. So when he kicked the branch off the mountain they’d hiked, he didn’t even think about it. f

Maria, a 6 year old girl who was all too obsessed with finding unicorns, whined at him “Eliza said unicorns don’t live here”. She looked about to burst into tears. “Just not at this time of year, he replied reassuringly. Eliza, the only other camper Milo’s age, glanced back at him. What was wrong with her, Milo thought. As if she could read his mind, she said to him “this isn’t some stupid fairy tale, real world here”. As if a 6 year old would get that.

The day hadn’t been fun, so when Milo’s mom came to pick him up, he was glad to get out of there. His week at the horrible camp was over. Being in nature isn’t fun when you have to do silly activities like that. Dealing with little kids sad about unicorns wasn’t very fun. What his sister Wendy did, now that was an adventure, so when he got in the car, nothing prepared him for what his mom was about to say.
