Spymaster's Death by Kimberly & Holly, both age 9
Stink and Ink were running to the Spy Master’s house. The twins were excited to see him because he helped them get rid of their horrible parents. Stink tripped “Ouch,” he said.
Ink helped Stink up then Ink fell down. “Ouch,” Ink said.
They laughed at each other as they got up. They didn’t watch where they were going and slipped and fell again.
“That hurts like running into a pole,” said Ink.
They both got up and dusted themselves off. They were almost at the Spy Master’s house. They saw a banana peel. They decided to jump over it. Instead they landed on it and slipped. They landed on their butts.
“Ouch,” said the pair again.
They got up and knocked on the door, but nobody answered. They saw the window and climbed through it. They found a note on the table.
Dear Stink and Ink,
I know that you climbed through the window. That’s O.K. because it’s Ink’s house now. I am suffocating from lung cancer. So in my Will I am leaving Ink my house and everything I own. Now Ink, you better share the trillion dollars with Stink. The money is on the floor. Please visit me in the hospital. You need to visit me because if you don’t I will haunt you forever, curse you, take back the money, and when you sleep I will give you nightmares.
The Spy Master
The twins ran as fast as they could to the hospital, rode the elevator up to floor five hundred and five, ran through the wall and ended up in a forest, where many freaky one-eyed monsters lived. The monsters wanted to eat Stink and Ink so they blasted out lasers through their eyes. Stink and Ink grabbed two shields that fell from the sky. The lasers hit the shields and blasted right back into the monsters’ eyes. Their eyes exploded and the monsters died.
“Great,” Stink said. “We just killed twenty monsters that tried to eat us. Now we have to find the way out of this horrible world.”
“Just shut up and go find the way out,” said Ink
“No I have to find the way out and you follow, so you follow me.
“Let me think about that. No! No! No! No! I find a way out and you will follow.”
“Fine be that way, I’ll just find the way out by myself.”
“Fine! Fine! Fine! I’ll follow.”
“Great, I know a short-cut that can never fail and I found it.”
They ran through a forest for thirty minutes. Stink found some sleeping monsters hogging some arrows. Stink and Ink grabbed the arrows and threw them at the monsters’ eyes. Stink and Ink needed to enter a magical vortex to bring them back to Earth or else they would stay in this place forever. A voice spoke over them.
“I will kill you, and you too, I swear,” shouted the Monster King.
The Monster King had five eyes so he shot five lasers at a time. Ink and Stink found five magical spheres and they had five seconds before the spheres blew up. Five, four, three, two, one. The spheres landed in the Monster King’s eye and blew up. The Monster King blew over the mountains, off of the Earth and landed on another planet a hundred trillion miles away, called La! La! Land!
“If we run,” said Stink, “we can get back faster to visit the Spy Master before he dies.”
“I know,” said Ink.
They saw the magical vortex that could bring them back to Earth. They knew about the vortex because the Spy Master had mentioned it before. The vortex was a circle. The vortex shrunk a little bit every minute. When it was half-way gone, they quickly jumped in it and appeared in the Spy Master’s hospital room.
“We got your message,” Ink said. “So here we are.”
“I’m glad you came,” The Spy Master said. “I’ve got something to say. I’m going to die any minute now.”
“Noooooooo!” Stink said.
The heart monitor made a loud beep and the red zigzagging line straightened out.
After the Spy Master was buried, Stink and Ink visited his grave every year. Ink lived in the Spy Master’s house. Every time the twins met, they talked about how great the Spy Master was to them. Even though he left them that threatening note, they still forgave him because he helped Stink and Ink get rid of their horrible parents.
