Alone By Rachael Peel The thundering war of the LAND And the Waves Loud cries Filling the air Windows breaking Hearts do too
Sweeping away What the Scientists do Shadows waving Waving goodbye To the ones who had died And who travel through the air Cursing The monster Praying for another life To Jesus Crist It’s too fierce It’s too strong People believe to defeat They are wrong Being Alone Alone in the dark And the shadows follow you
You that’s alone And things to go through And things to go through Alone Alone Alone A Stinging Story By Rachael Peel Here we are. We are going to be all right as long as everyone does what there supposed to do. The lifeguard says, “What ever you do don’t play with them. They are jellyfish. No poking. No squishing. And do not fidget with them. OK?” We nodded and rolled our eyes, as if it’s such a scary brainless animal that might kill us! Oh no! You know I’m sarcastic. Boom! Off my family goes! Running through the soft sand towards the waves. Wow, if I was that lifeguard I would just say “You ignored me! Not my fault if you got stung!” Looking around I found I was the only one standing by the lifeguard. As I slowly lowered my head toward him… Boom! There I go! The flexible liquid flowing through my legs and arms, carrying me away from the soft, wet, slimy shore. Well I didn’t care. As long as I was safe. I mean I was, but by the time I came out of the water for lunch, I completely
forgot about the warning that lifeguard gave us. Maybe because that lifeguard was a bit ugly and also because I didn’t know what he was saying. I generally don’t listen to ugly people. Sorry, but I was just paying the most attention to the bright flowing waves like the hair of a beautiful teenage girl. What is wrong with not listening to a Chinese lifeguard? Those jellyfish wouldn’t sting me. …Right? No way. Oh! So far this has been the day of heaven, and now why would a mean, ugly, blue jellyfish ruin my day of awesomeness? There I go again splashing and squirming through the cold evening waters. I run around playing tag and four people capture the flag… (By the way you need more people, but that is another story) We finally started really going out into the salty wild. We found a romantic fish couple probably on their honeymoon and also a great family of………… “No Way!!!” We were going to have fun with this. A family of jellyfish. We are now going to swim through the place of horror. “Aaaaaaaa!” Pain entered my body. I felt like I was going to completely black out and become unconscious. But I made it to the shore alive. I didn’t see my family. Did they make it? I looked around in the blue evil ocean and around the shore but no mom, no dad and no brother. I walked around and decided to go back to our shaded area and there they were. And as they saw my legs they shouted, “Go get a stick and flick that creature off of you!” I looked down and lowered my head to get a better look. I ran around the beach screaming for a stick and found some stick way on the other side. I thought that jellyfish was dead as I swept it off my useful body part. There…. aah I am perfect again, but when I looked down I found scratches and purple swollen parts and so we rushed to the hotel doctor. We were safe, but not listening to the lifeguard was a bad idea after all. That lifeguard was some grown up I personally didn’t listen to, and I was a bit embarrassed showing up in front of him since those swollen parts kind-‐of proved I didn’t listen to him. Well now I am a bit against the ocean now, but I still love swimming.

Scripts Music- Wii Sports Mina- Main Reporter Alissa- Reporter +Translator Rachael-Japanese Interviewer Music Mina- Hello. This is M.A.R news. Today we will be talking about the Japanese, Chinese, and Taiwanese conflict of the isolated islands in the East China Sea. The Japanese call this Senkaku Shoto. The Chinese call it the Daioyutai islands, and the Taiwanese call it the Taiyutai islands. Right now, this conflict is growing and becoming an even bigger international problem. It has also become very violent. Here are some examples of what is happening. Lets hear some words from reporter Alissa in Beijing, China. Alissa- Hello, this is Alissa reporting from the Japanese embassy in Beijing. Today, people have gathered and are having a demonstration against Japan. Many of the people are holding Japanese flags and saying “NO!” The demonstration is getting wilder and wilder. Let’s see
some of this chaos. Scene Mina- Can we solve this problem by looking at a map? Going by the Japanese name Senkaku Islands are located in the East China Sea. Taiwan is the closest by around 75 miles. Japan is the second closest by around 100 miles, and China is the least closest by around 125 miles. All of the nations are exceptionally close, but is this the only reason for ownership?
Now we have an interview from Yoshikawa Shion, a professional interviewer. Rachael says STUFF and Alissa Translate. Rachael-
What I believe is that even though the Chinese burn the Japanese flag, break Toyota cars, or vandalize Japanese companies, this will not solve the problem. 最近、香港は、先覚諸島に、行って中国のハタをたてました。香港も、 もしかして
になります。しかし、中国は、アメリカに、日本に助けを求めさせない ように 、アメリカに、言いました。皆は皆で、だれ の助けを求めずに、国と国で、戦った方がいいと思います。公平じゃな いと思います。 Lately, Hong Kong has gone to Senkaku Shoto and put the Chinese flag up. Maybe, Hong Kong and China are grouped together with one another. This is a really huge problem. Therefore, China has told
America not to help the Japanese. In my opinion, everyone should not ask for any help and fight with their country’s strength. It wouldn’t be fair to anyone. 知っているかもしれませんですが、中国では、反日デモや、日本が、も っともっと怒ることをしています。日本は、今のごろ、デモなどはして いないですけど、そろそろやった方がいいと思います。なぜ先覚諸島は 日本の物なのかをもっと表現しないといけません。 I believe you all may know this but China has had many demonstrations, or things that Japan would get furious for. Right now, Japan isn’t doing any demonstrations but I think they should. They must express their thoughts in why the Senkaku Shoto Island is theirs and not the other country’s. Mina- Thank you, Shion. A few moments ago, we have received a scene where the Chinese and the Japanese threaten each other with their water hoses. This was one of the ways the two countries thought would fix the situation. Show scene of water fight. Mina- Now some words from our American interviewer, Casey. (Sunglass and jacket. Act American.) So, like that water fight was totally not useful ‘cause like, it’ll get my face wet and like, why does America have to help in this stupid water fight thingy whatev. ‘Cause like, what if they have a war about water? Its goanna be all that stupid islands fault, do you like get… Rachael- The violence is something China is putting force into. Taiwan is claiming that they should take the island because they’re the closest. Alissa- it seems like the end to this situation isn’t close yet and the countries are still fighting. Will it end with war or not? Why do the countries really want this island as theirs?
Mina- The reason is because the island holds oil and is a good fishing area. It has some specialties that the countries want. Which hands will the islands go to? How violent will this be? We’ll meet you next week at… All- M.A.R news!

Twins In Action By Rachael Peel Dedicated to my family and teachers (Especially my brother) Sometimes I get sick of my brother. Having a brother who is a horror and I just can’t get over with having to share my existence with him. Playing games. He cheats. Trying to give me advice on soccer. He screams, ” Dribble it better you weird person!” you know that doesn’t help. When did I learn to live with him? Well that's not all you should know. You see dealing with some person like the…the… brother is sometimes a pain, but I mean being with him is better then being alone. Playing fair is better then cheating, giving good advice like, ”Almost there! Keep going!” Is way better then screaming in my sensitive ear…right? Try to be a better brother. Please? Only if he had the sense to be better. I can see him in my mind swirling around looking for more pranks to do on me. Now having a twin brother is pretty hard to understand you know. Well if I were to be alone then I would rather be with someone and if it had to be my brother Justin, then I would still be with him. Sometimes I take a shower with him and my little cute brother and sometimes I don’t mind him not doing all my little brothers washing. Sometimes I just think that maybe having a brother isn’t a bad idea after all. He is sometimes very useful like when he keeps me company on the train, but that's basically all he does that is suitable for me. He points a vicious finger at me and screams with salty tears in his boring eyes, “ She did it! There is no proof that I did it.” I sometimes am tired of a knock on the door saying, “ You want a drink? Because I do. If you want I will go with you.” Now that will never work with me. I will not go downstairs in the middle of the night to get a drink of water. And if I were to, I would
go myself. I officially, by strict rules do not take trips in the late lightless place of night. That black hair. That bulldog robe, (that he really loves) that messy bed bug strung still inside his hair. It reminds me of a zombie. Never mistaken, he is one. In my opinion. Getting over with red marks across my face is almost impossible. Telling gets me in more trouble anyways. Apologizing from myself is like is never enough. In his rules he really doesn’t accept apologies. That chill through your spine, while he tells on you is incredibly uncomfortable. And I will promise you, he always does. My life is just one pile of junk, but if I work on not really fighting then maybe I can actually share my existence with Justin. I thought that this would be the end of the world. Would it? Well I would never accomplish such a task like getting over a twin brother. It's an impossible mission. No doubt. Totally impossible. Can I get over with him telling on me or will I get revenge…ha ha! Be aware brother. Here I come!
