Yes, it’s finally here! If you would like to be refreshed by what is going on- go read the previous parts by clicking here 🙂
I went on my way to seek out Aldera, the woman who had cursed Eiden when he was little. And then I found her, smack in the middle of nowhere. “Why, Elexa, long time no see. Last I saw you, you were only 5 years old.” Aldera greeted.
“Enough of the fake kindness, Aldera, I need to speak with you, about Eiden…” I finished softly.
Aldera’s face turned cold. “I can’t bring him back, dear, if that’s what you want.”
“Oh, I think you can. Please, I already caused my father’s death, I don’t want to be responsible for Eiden’s, too!” I cried. Aldera smirked and then laughed. “You foolish girl! Your brother isn’t dead, he’s asleep and that curse can never be broken.” I looked at her in surprise. “But, if you made the curse, can’t you undo it?” I asked.
“I could, but I don’t want to. Your brother destroyed my castle and that took away almost all of my powers! If I were ever to break that curse, I would need to receive something very special and useful to me in return. Which considering why you ran away, I know you won’t give that.” Aldera stated.
“No, I will! I’ll give you anything you want!” I said hopefully.
A little grin spread across Aldera’s face. “Anything?” She asked.
“Anything. All I want is my brother back. What do you want?” I inquired.
“I want- your powers.” Aldera said while smiling.
“Wh- what do you want with my powers?” I asked.
Aldera stepped more closely to me and whispered, “You’ve heard the tale of Snow White, of course. Well that queen wanted to be the fairest of them all, but I want to be the most powerful of them all. If you give me your powers, I will bring your brother back.” I thought hard before replying then asked, “No one will get hurt, will they?” Aldera looked surprised and said, “Why, of course not! I would never dream of it! Do we have a deal?” What I didn’t notice was that she was crossing her fingers behind her back.
I held out my hands and sighed. “Deal.”
And with a wide grin, Aldera removed my powers.
When they were removed, I felt weak, and it caused me to fall to the floor.
“Oh, don’t worry. That’s bound to happen after having your powers removed. You’ll wake up, just as soon as I get rid of you.” She said and with a wave of her wrist-
-I was transported back to my ice palace.
“Eiden!” I yelled as I noticed him still lying on the floor.
“Eiden, are you alright? Wake up!” I said as I shook his shoulder.
“Elexa? Wh- what happened?” Eiden asked as he began to sit up.
“It’s okay. I gave up my powers to Aldera so she would bring you back.” I explained.
“Y- you gave up your powers for me? But, the reason you left is because you didn’t want your powers taken away.” Eiden said, confused.
“I know, but you’re my brother, and you mean more to me than any magical power in the world.” I said with a smile.
Eiden embraced me in his best brotherly hug. Then Eiden said, “Come on, let’s go home and see Mother.”
That’s the end of Part 4! Look for Part 5 coming soon! 😀
Yesterday I walked in my bedroom and heard Saige, Clara, Cecile, and Eli playing. They were being so cute that I just had to take some pictures of them! I started taking pictures a little late into the game, so if you’re confused by something, don’t worry- as a “mom”, I was a little lost on what was going on myself 😛
Saige (who was playing a princess) was writing in her diary when her servant (Clara) walked in.
“Your Highness, those two people who were here earlier would like to see you.” Clara said.
“Oh, yes, please send them in.” Saige said- trying to make her voice sound like an adult.
“Princess, we found something that will help us escape the evil duchess- uh- Melinda Zoosh!” Cecile hesitated as she tried to remember the name of the duchess.
Eli whispered to Clara, “Uh, I think the servant would have left the room.” Clara smiled and said “Oh! Right!” and walked away.
“Oh? And what is it?” The princess asked.
“It’s in this pouch.” Cecile said as she laid a black drawstring pouch on the desk.
The princess opened it and took out an old coin (it’s really supposed to be something else, though 😉 ). “What is this?” The princess asked.
“It’s a travel stone. There were only three made and two have been used already. This is the very last one. We used the second one to get back here.” Eli explained.
“Ah, I see. But- what are we gonna use it for?” The princess inquired.
“We’re going to use it to get everyone in the kingdom away from the Duchess. We’re going back where we came from.” Cecile said. I’m pretty sure Cecile and Eli were really from the land they’re in now, but used a Travel Stone to take them to our modern day world. And then they used another one to bring them back. That’s what I was able to deduce 😉
Saige threw her hands in the air and yelled, “HOLD IT! Time out on playing for a minute! Where on earth is this story going? It keeps getting more and more confusing!”
Cecile turned around and leaned over the bunk bed. “I don’t know! I’m confused, too!!” Cecile exclaimed. “Well, it is improv, it’s not all supposed to make perfect sense like a book, you know.” Eli said a little annoyed.
“Um, do I have a say in what’s going on? I know I’m just a servant, but I’m playing too!” Clara stated.
Cecile put her hand on her head and said, “WAIT! I have an idea!! What if me and Eli are really like minions or whatever to the evil Duchess and she wants everyone to go to another land for some weird reason that we don’t need to say, cause then we’d be really stuck!”
“Oh, that’s cool! I like playing the bad guy!” Eli said, finally getting into the story. I think he was a little bored at first 😛
“Yeah, I like that!” Saige said, reaching her hand out to give Cecile a high five.
“Good idea, Cece!” Clara said.
“Alright, so we should take you guys captive and tie you up or something!” Eli said with a grin. What a boy, right?
After everything had been settled they continued with their story.
(They’re pretending to be tied up. Looks like Eli got his way 😛 )
(Now Cecile and Eli were pretending to be different people who were helping Saige and Clara escape. They’re walking over a bridge that’s a 100 ft. high!)
And they played!
(Saige was attacking Cecile cause now Cecile was being bad again 😛 )
After they had finished their game I asked to take a group photo of them. Aren’t they just too cute? 😀
Do you ever have problems when you’re playing and just can’t figure out where the story is going? It happens to me all the time! 😀 😛
Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!!! 😀
In just a couple of days- On the 21st- it will be a year since I started my very first photostory series. Do you know which one??
That’s right! September 21st is the day that I started “A Pirate Adventure”!! AND the reason I made it was because of Talk Like A Pirate Day! 😀
I have loved all of my pirate series, enjoyed every minute of making them, and have truly appreciated every single one of your comments on them! And I’m going to let you all in on a little secret-
I’m going to continue making pirate series for a very long time! I find that they are one of the easiest types of photostory series to make and I just LOVE making them! 😀
Now, in celebration of “Talk Like A Pirate Day”, join Victoria, Captain McGovern and her hearty crew, and Jake on their thrilling adventures!
Farewell, Maties! Enjoy readin’ them stories! 😉 😛
I was in my new ice cottage using my magic to make things colder, when suddenly-
Eiden burst in! “Elexa stop!!” Eiden shouted. I was disgusted at the sight of him. My own brother betrayed me. All of a sudden, I got furious and felt myself shaking in anger.
“So, after all these weeks my betraying brother comes to look for me.” I said angrily.
Eiden ignored me and said, “Elexa, what have you done to this poor young woman? She’s ice cold!” I just glared at him. “Anyone who is my slave must be COLD!” I yelled.
“You know, perhaps neither one of you is cold enough…”
Just as I shot out my ice Eiden pushed Abigail forward and said, “DUCK!” I missed them!
Eiden helped Abigail get up and tied his cape around her. “Take this and get out of here!” Eiden whispered and she ran off.
“Oh, that was very wise, brother. Now tell me, why have you just now come to look for me? Why did you agree to have my powers removed?! I thought you knew me better than that, Eiden!” I yelled angrily with tears in my eyes.
“I wanted to come after you, Elexa! But Mother wouldn’t allow it. She said it was dangerous….” Eiden’s voice trailed off as he realized that calling me dangerous would make very angry.
I raised my hands in the air and yelled, “I am not- DANGEROUS!!!”
And with that, I shot out my ice and to my surprise, Eiden shot out a fire ball!
I struggled to beat his fire with my ice and he was trying to beat me, so I put my hands down. “You surprise me, Eiden. I did not know that your powers were so strong.”
“Elexa, please, let’s talk about this. No more magic.” Eiden was out of breath as we spoke.
“Oh, no. We’ve only just begun this fight.” I said and brought myself up into a cloud of snow and ice.
I shot out an icy blast and-
Eiden quickly shot out some fire and jumped to the floor to dodge my magic.
Eiden stayed on the floor for a second- breathing heavily.
“Come on traitor, get up and fight!” I said.
“Please, no more magic. I can’t do it.” Eiden said in a whisper. “There will be magic.” I said.
Then I shot out my ice and he his fire.
Eiden was only able to hold his fire a couple of seconds and then fell to the ground.
“Eiden, get up!” I demanded. I was very tired of him falling to the ground after each time we used magic. As I studied him more closely, I realized that he wasn’t breathing. Was he unconscious?
I went down to him and shook his shoulder. “Eiden? Eiden, please get up!” I said with tears in my eyes. It was too late. He was gone.
“Oh, Eiden. I’m so sorry!” I cried.
Then I sat up as I remembered something from when we were little kids. A voice rang in my head saying,
“For destroying my home with your fire, I hereby curse you to never use magic unless the situation is dire. If you use it just once, just for fun, your life will be done. But if you use it in great need, three times I allow you indeed. After the third time, you will fall and never attend your future engagement ball!”
I gasped, “Eiden was cursed, and had to promise never to use his magic. And I made him do it. I must find the woman who brought this upon him!”
That’s the end of Part 3! Look for the next part coming soon! 😀
“Mother, it’s been four weeks since Elexa left and we haven’t heard any news about her. Please let me go out and look for her!” Eiden said, raising his voice. He was very worried about his sister.
“No, Eiden. We can not risk going after her. And you especially- don’t you remember the promise you had to make all those years ago? If you went after Elexa and found her, you may break that promise. I will not have you risk that.” Elsa said sadly. She was just as worried as Eiden, if not more so, for her daughter, but there was nothing to be done. Then a young girl entered the Throne Room.
“May I help you, miss?” Elsa asked.
“Forgive me Your Highness, but I wish to inform you that I saw some strange things happening in the woods. It was like magic and as I went closer to see what was happening- I got so cold that I had to leave.” The young girl explained.
Eiden knew it was Elexa and his spirits were raised. “The woods… I have to convince mother to let me go!” Eiden thought.
“I thought it may be the princess…” The girl said shyly.
“Thank you for informing us of this predicament. We will look after it.” Elsa said sternly and the girl left.
“Mother, that’s Elexa- it has to be! Who else in the kingdom has magic like that? I have to go after her!” Eiden said firmly.
“Yes, it is Elexa, but you are not going after her! No one is. Now please, don’t ask me to let you go again…” Elsa said- this time more sad than before. Now that she knew where her daughter was, it hurt even more, because she knew that Elexa would not come home…
“She told me not to ask anymore, so I’ll just go. I know I can convince her to come home.” Eiden said to himself.
That night, Eiden sneaked out of the castle and went on his way to find his sister and then-
He stopped dead in his tracks and looked in the sky.
He saw ice magic swirling and shooting up high into the sky.
Eiden just stared and whispered, “Elexa…”
That’s the end of Part 2!! Look Part 3 coming tomorrow! 😀
My name is Elexa and I am the daughter of Queen Elsa and Jack Frost. My parents are the rulers of a small kingdom in Norway by the name of Arendelle. Just a few years ago (when I was 18), my life was insane and I did something that will haunt me all my life. This is my story:
I gazed at my personal picture of my father, Jack Frost. I closed my eyes and I saw images and heard voices in my head of the day my father died….
I gasped- “Papa!”
As soon as I saw my father and realized I was striking him with my ice, I stopped my magic.
I gazed at him lying on the ground- he was gone.
I cried and cried….
“Oh, Papa. If I’d have only known you were standing behind me you would still be alive. You’d still be here with us. It’s been three weeks now….I love you and I miss you with all my heart!” I cried.
Then I heard voices outside and I was certain that I heard my name, so I looked out the window. It was Mother and Eiden!
“Mother, are you sure you want to do that to Elexa? Taking away her powers for what happened….” Eiden’s voice trailed off as he thought of his father. “That just doesn’t seem right. It was only an accident.” Eiden continued. Eiden was my twin brother and we’ve always been very close. I was glad he was defending me!
“No, Eiden. Elexa has been using her powers too much. Something like that should not be used lightly. I’ve seen a change in her, too. She seems more serious and she is focusing too hard on her power and I know what that’s like.” Mother had been forced to hide her magic all her life, then when her and her sister, Anna got into a little fight, her magic powers were revealed. She had run away on her coronation night and almost turned into a monster. But now, she has control over her powers and no one is afraid of her.
“Well, if you think it’s best….” Eiden replied. “What?! Eiden how could you!” I yelled, but in a whisper, so no one would hear.
“I’ll start searching for a way to remove her powers immediately. But I’m going to have a talk with Elexa first.” Mother said.
“Remove my powers? That would be like taking away my life! There’s no way I’m gonna allow that to happen. I need to leave…” I said to myself.
I looked once more at the picture of my father and slipped away. I was headed towards the woods.
“I should’ve changed my dress!” I grumbled as I ran through the trees. Then I noticed a small cottage and decided to see if anyone lived there.
“My Lady! To what do I owe this honor of having you visiting my house?” The lady at the cottage asked. I saw something in her and I knew exactly what I wanted her to do for me.
“I’d like to stay here for awhile an-” I was cut off by the woman.
“Oh, certainly, My Lady! I’d be happy to have you stay here for the night!” The woman replied. “Thank you, now tell me, what is your name?” I asked. “Oh, yes, it’s Abigail.” She replied.
“Wonderful! Now Abigail, there’s one more thing I’d like for you to do for me.” I said. “Anything, My Lady!” Abigail replied. I grinned and said, “I need you to be my slave…”
That’s all for Part One! The next part will be coming soon!! I hope you like it so far! 😀
Jake went over to Captain Coronado to thank her again. “I can’t tell you how grateful I am to ye.” Jake said.
“Aye, I know ye are. Twas the least I could do.” Captain Coronado replied. Then she reached into her desk and pulled something out of it…
“Here, I want ye to have this. It will bring ye wisdom. But, ye must promise never to take yer eyes off it! Any evil pirate would die fer a special item as this.” Captain Coronado explained.
“Thank ye. And, aye, ye have my word.” Jake promised.
“Now then. Ye best get prepared for battle. Blackheart will have heard of what I done and I’m sure she’ll be comin’ after ye with ships and cannons. Ye must be ready.” Captain Coronado stated.
“Aye, we’ll start preparin’ for battle right away.” Jake said.
I had been talking with Siara, but as soon as I heard Jake mention battle I turned my head towards him. I didn’t want to have anything to do with a battle. But since Jake thought it was best, I knew it was only right for me to follow him- whether I liked it or not.
Meanwhile, Blackheart was on the hunt for me and Jake. I knew she would not rest until we were back in her cells.
“Captain Jones! Captain! Captain!” Blackheart’s deckhand called. “Aye, what is it?!” Blackheart shouted. “It’s a note! It’s about The Code!” The deckhand explained. “WHAT?!” Blackheart yelled furiously and snatched the note from his hand.
The note said: “Code number 12 has hereby been terminated by Captain Coronado- The Keeper of The Code.”
Blackheart exclaimed in disgust. She threw the note to the ground and squished it with her foot.
“YOU! Bring me some paper NOW! I have me own little note I need to write. Thar troubles are far from over…” Blackheart ordered.
“Aye, Cap’n!” He said and scurried off.
“Victoria, we have to be prepared to defend ourselves!” Jake stated. I had been talking with him about the battle. I know I had decided to follow him, but I just didn’t want there to be any battle.
“I know, but perhaps we could try reasoning with her first!” I said.
“Uh, ‘scuse me, but while ye were talkin’ a bird dropped this here note. Ye might wanna take a look.” Siara said.
Jake read aloud: “As Captain Blackheart Jones’ second in command, I regret to inform you that Captain Jones is dead. Ye are now free from her wrath. Captain Reed.”
“What? Sh-she’s dead? But how? What on earth happened?” I was in a state of shock. It didn’t make sense to me that she died.
“It don’t say what happened. But as the note said- we don’t have to worry ’bout her fighting us anymore.” Siara said. I know that Blackheart was evil and mean, but I still felt sad that she died.
Jake was staring at the deck. “I don’t know. This doesn’t make sense to me. Blackheart is the best pirate around. It doesn’t seem likely to me that she just died. Ah, well, I’m sure it’s true. We did get a note from Captain Reed…” I walked over to Jake and said-
“Yes, Jake. It’s all over. We may finally live and sail forever- in peace.”
We reached Monte Cristo Island in one day and went straight to see “The Keeper of The Code”.
“She ain’t here yet. We’ll have to wait a little while.” Siara said.
Just a moment later, she arrived. She was just about the fanciest pirate I’d ever seen and she looked very important, which made me even more nervous to talk to her.
“Captain, Coronado, lovely to see ye.” Siara greeted.
“Siara. These be the pirates ye told me ’bout?” Captain Coronado asked firmly.
Jake and I just stood there. I think he was just as nervous as I was!
“Well, now. Let’s take a look at The Code ye two broke.” Captain Coronado said.
She pulled out a huge book from inside of her desk. The book had every Code ever made written in there. She looked through the pages and the rest of us watched restlessly.
“Ah, here it be. It says: Ever thar be two pirates who form an attachment to each other, they be not permitted to engage in matrimony. If thar be pirates who enter into matrimony they’d better give up their title of pirate and never return. Or if that not be in thee head, then so they must give up thar first born.” Captain Coronado read.
“That’s just wrong. If a man and a woman of any title fall in love they should be able to get married!” I said angrily.
“But what ’bout the other Code that states- Every man for himself? If pirates be married , they’ll wanna protect each other. They wouldn’t be able to leave’m for anythin’.” Captain Coronado explained.
“Aye, but that could also happen with friends. Victoria and I have very good friends, and if they were ever in trouble, we’d help them. It’s not very different really.” Jake stated. “Yes, that’s true!” I exclaimed. I was so ready to leave and win this fight!
Captain Coronado turned her head. “Ye know, I ain’t been The Keeper of The Code for so long. But, as I am The Keeper, I can make any sort of Code I like as well as change some. So, I believe I’ll just do this…” Captain Coronado grabbed a pen and drew an “X” over that Code and signed her name underneath. My heart was racing “Does, does this mean-” I started and Captain Coronado finished my sentence-
“Ye may stay married and live in peace.”
Jake, Siara and I shouted for joy! We had won this fight and us pirates would never have to be afraid to marry again. Now all that worried me was Blackheart. What would she do when she finds out about The Code? I prayed that she would not come after us…
Look for Part 4 coming soon! 😀
It had been 4 days and we were still being held captive in Blackheart’s hideout. “Ugh! What does she want with us?!” I yelled as I slammed my hands around the bars of our cell.
“Victoria, calm down. We’ll be okay.” Jake said calmly.
“Jake, you were evil once, so you know how evil people think. If you were Blackheart what would you do with us?” I asked and once I finished my sentence I gasped. “Oh, Jake I’m sorry! I don’t know what I’m saying right now. I- I’m just so upset over everything right now.” I cried.
“It’s alright. I don’t know why we’ve been here so long. I don’t know what she’s planning, but as long as we’re together, nothing will happen to us. We take care of each other.” Jake said with a smile. “But what about her threats in the cave? She’s trying to separate us!” I exclaimed. “Victoria, she can never separate us. The Code states that if two pirates are married, they must give up being a pirate or-” Jake stopped talking. “Or what?” I asked. “Well- we’d have to give up our first born child.” Jake said sadly. “What?!” I asked, in a state of shock.
“Wait- what is that?” I asked. “What’s what?” Jake replied. “I hear footsteps… It must be Blackheart!” I said.
And slowly a young woman approached us. I had never seen her before, but I could tell she was a pirate.
“Who are you?” Jake asked. “My name is Siara. Don’t worry, I’m here to help ye.” Siara said.
“You can get us out of here?” I asked anxiously. “Aye. But we must move quickly. Who knows when Blackheart’ll come down here next.” Siara said.
“Yes, but I’m sure Blackheart keeps the keys somewhere else.” I stated.
“Don’t need’em. I’ve busted quite a few prisoners outta here. I know just what to do!” Siara explained.
Siara grabbed a hairpin out of her skirt and poked it in the keyhole. After a few seconds we heard the click- it was unlocked!
“Good work, Siara!” Jake said. “Yes, thank you so much!” I exclaimed.
“No trouble at all. Now we gotta hurry and get ye two to Monte Cristo!” Siara said.
“Monte Cristo? Why do we have to go there?” Jake questioned.
“We’re meeting the Keeper of The Code thar. She’s a friend of mine and I told her about ye. I’m tryin’ to help you two and many others as well. Ye aren’t the first pirates to fall in love, but ye be the first ones to get married since that Code was made. Now maybe, just maybe, she’ll change The Code and pirates will be able to marry again.” Siara explained.
“Siara, do you love someone as well?” I asked. “Aye, I do. The Code isn’t fair and that’s why we need to change it.” Siara replied. “And do you know what Blackheart wants to do to us?” I asked again. “Well, either she wants to separate ye (even if it means death) or she wants to take your first born child- if and when ye ever have one.” Siara explained.
I’m certain Jake knew I was scared since he grabbed my hand. I couldn’t bear the thought of losing my child or Jake. “Why is The Code so important to Blackheart?” I asked myself and off we went to Monte Cristo Island.
To be continued in Part 3! 😀
In case you have forgotten what last happened, please read the last part by clicking here 🙂
Jake and I sat still for a moment and we could hear footsteps constantly.
“Victoria, we need to get out of here. If we stay in this cave forever Blackheart will surely find us.” Jake stated.
“But, Jake, Blackheart and her crew are searching everywhere for us. If we leave the cave we will definitely get caught!” I said discouraged. “Well, either way we’ll be found, so the question really should be, where would we rather be discovered?” Jake said jokingly. “Oh, Jake, this isn’t a time for jokes!” I said very upset.
“Really, Captain Turner, ye should listen to yer wife. You see, the joke is all on you. Because thanks to me, you won’t ever be together again!” Blackheart said with a grin. “Now, put your hands up!” She ordered with a point of her sword.
We put our hands up, but I really wish Jake would’ve fought her! Although he didn’t have his sword.. “Jake, are we doing the right thing?” I whispered. “Yes, just do as Blackheart says.” He replied.
“Well, someone knows what they’re doing. Listen to yer ‘HUSBAND’, Missy, while ye can.” Blackheart ordered. Something in the way she said “Husband” made me sick. Like she really despised us being together. And what was all this “Never be together again” and “While you can” business? Was she threatening to kill us?
“Now, walk out of here and go to the ship. And remember, I have a sword and ye don’t, so no funny business, ye hear?” Blackheart said.
“What is Blackheart going to do to us? We’re captives now. If only Elinor knew where we were.”
To be continued in Part 2!! 😀
