The Lost City – Narrative Writing

The lost City

100% of people who have tried to find The City of Miracles have failed. Either lacking the knowledge of where this city is, or dying in the process of fulfilling their dreams. Their dream was to be first, in the articles, in the news and the first to find the city. Although this dream is great, it isn’t for me. My dream is to be the first person to see the city. A memory was all I needed and wanted.

Legend says that The City of Miracles or often called Miracle City, was the perfect city. Grass pure green, the freshest water, big mountains shaped flawlessly and houses built for kings and queens. People often thought this was great, but what was so special? It’s in the name, Miracle City. Just stepping a foot into the city would give you miracle after miracle. A reason for anyone to want to find the city. Who wouldn’t want good luck for the rest of their life?

Finding a lost city is not easy. If it was, it would definitely be discovered already. It was going to take a lot of work to find it. Usually I prefer an easy job, but if the reward is high I’m willing to take the risk. Rummaging through desks of paper, I found my map. The city was supposed to be in the Pacific Ocean, near Tahiti. Searching for coordinate after coordinate, I had finished with two destinations. One at the top of Tahiti and one at the bottom. There was only one way to find out which one was The City of Miracles.

Staring out a plane window I was seated in SA1 R26. Blue oceans and green mountains filled my eyesight. The polynesian islands were beautiful. SQUEAK! A loud sound came from the plane wing. 

“It’s your captain here speaking. We’re sorry for the light turbulence. We’ll be right back on track.” It was reassuring, but still a bit scary. 

“Get ready for landing.” With that the seatbelt sign went on. The wheels squeaked as they glided out of the plane. SHOOOM! Our plane slid on the smooth concrete. We made it to Tahiti safely, now it was time to explore the country of Tahiti.

The airport that I flew to was just a little while away from the first destination. The one at the top of Tahiti was beautiful, this was the one I was most excited for. My cab drove through the roads of Tahiti. By the calculations of the coordinates the first destination should be right on the tip of the beach. Suddenly the car stopped. 

“Hey I’m sorry, but you’ll have to take the rest on foot.” His English was a bit rusty, but very good for a Tahitian man.

“Yep, that’s fine, thanks for the ride!” I gave him the money required with a generous tip. I began my journey to the beach nervous for what was ahead. 

Now realising why I had to walk the rest of the way, I trenched over fallen trees. Leaves cracked under my feet, and birds chirped in the distance. It was a magnificent sight. I heard the noise of a snake behind me. I turned around and… AHHHHH!!! I ran as fast as I could trying my hardest not to trip over the branches. The snake sped up and I was terrified. I tripped and fell to the ground. It shook as I toppled down. I wasn’t that heavy right? It opened up and I fell through the stiff soil. What was happening?

To my surprise I was floating through the air! I twisted my body and I let out a huge sigh of relief. There it was, The City of Miracles. I was finally here. It was outstanding. You couldn’t describe it in words. I floated down to the islands beneath me. It was beautiful. My eyes were overflowing with amazing sights. My dream had finally been fulfilled.


Ogre and The Princess

Ogre was an unloved fellow. Smelly, weird appetite, unique looks and old clothes. Although he was kind and helpful people seemed to see past that. Except for the beloved Princess. Her name was Elenor, happy, smart, adventurous Elenor. The whole town loved her, she was soon to be married. She didn’t want to get married, but the only way she could save her kingdom was to have a man by her side… 

Ogre lived in the trenches of the forest. This is where the Live for Evil group settled long ago. They were a bad group of creatures and people, trying to take over the kingdom. The group was angry that Elenor didn’t have a strong man to rule by her side. Elenor thought otherwise, she knew that she could rule the kingdom as a strong princess. Even though Elenor felt this way she wanted to save her kingdom so she agreed to an arranged marriage. Princess Elenor was soon to be Queen Elenor.

Prince Alexander was soon to be ruler of Elenors kingdom. Elenor despised him, he had a horrible heart and only wanted power. Again though, she only did this to save her kingdom. To clear her head Elenor would go for long strolls through the fields. One day while picking the flowers she spotted Ogre. She had only met Ogre once, but they connected like they had been friends forever. Ogre held his spiked bat as he walked up to Elenor. 

“Hello Ogre!” Elenor was delighted to see him. 

“Why on earth are you holding that bat?” Ogre looked confused. 

“Haven’t you heard? Live for Evil are coming to invade the kingdom at dawn!” Elenors face went numb, the marriage wasn’t arranged until next month. Elenor was going to have to think fast. This problem had to be solved.

“It’s Seven O’clock, so there is about ten hours before they arrive.” Elenors thinking face showed. She was desperate to find a solution. Ogre turned to her slowly.

“Did they say the marriage had to be in a romantic way?” Elenor looked in hope. 

“What do you mean?”

“You could marry me, but not in a romantic way. It could be a marriage in friendship. Then if you wanted you could divorce me days,weeks or months later.”

“Wait your right, they said nothing about a romantic partner.” Elenor hugged Ogre,

“Thank-you so much for everything Ogre! Meet me at the palace at nine o’clock. I’ll send invitations to everyone!” With that she ran off, with a happy expression all over her face. 

Ogre arrived at the palace in his best clothes, Elenor was wearing a plain dress, blue with flowers. They stood in the far end of the church as people rushed in, including the Live for Evil. The people looked surprised to see a beautiful princess with a lonely Ogre. Elenor didn’t care though, she always said Anything for my kingdom. Saying their vowels it seemed the whole world had gone back to normal. Little did Elenor know, Ogre was a part of the whole plan….
