I am writing a book and I will be posting it on this discussion.(I am so excited!) So the story behind my story is interesting. I just started typing a paragraph because i was going to show my dad something on the internet and i came up with the prologue that you are going to be reading. I had no intentions of it being a story, but here I am. This is my very first time doing this so I may not post the chapters very fast, but I will try my best. That's about all, so I hope you enjoy reading my book. Oh, and one more thing. I am not tyring to be or anything, but those of you who read this please do not take any parts or ideas from my book. Thanks and enjoy!
Joseph Koney: He is a real person and is really, really bad. I mean bad.
A trail of sand followed two jeeps as they drove down a desert road. The road was marked with tire tracks from other vehicles that had used the road recently. Mainly jeeps from Joseph Kony’s rebel forces. Kony’s men scanned the desert for any trace of the three Americans. Off in the distance there were three dots moving steadily. “Look!” One of the men said pointing to the three dots of in the distance. “Hand me the binoculars.” Indulu ordered. One of the men handed him the binoculars and he looked through them. “It’s them.” He said in a heavy African accent. They changed course and started driving towards the three people in the distance.
The group of three continued walking, but they were all lost in thought and stayed silent. Suddenly Jason shouted out. “Look.” He said pointing. He had seen the sand picking up off in the distance, but didn’t notice what was causing it until just now. There were three jeeps heading there way. Both Clayton and Kylie saw the same thing and began shouting. “Yes!” They all started rejoicing and hugging each other. Clayton started waving his hands and shouting. “Over here, over here!” The jeeps were already coming their way.
As the jeeps got closer we were able to see the faces of men. All of them were tough looking soldiers and carried guns.
“It looks like we’re going to have an army escort.” I said. Jason and Kylie smiled. We were finally getting rescued. At least we thought we were. The two jeeps finally stopped right in front of us and the man who seemed to be there leader stepped out of one of the jeeps. He said something in a language that we couldn’t understand and three other men from the jeeps got out. The three men walked up to us and motioned for us to walk to the jeep. I guessed they didn’t know how to speak English. We walked in front of them, but were suddenly pushed to the ground. One of them shouted something and another man threw him three coils of rope. We were all held down with an iron grip and they began to tie our hands and feet. “W-what are you doing?” I asked fearfully. “You guys are supposed to be rescuing us.” “Let us go!” I pleaded
Indulu looked at Clayton and shot him an evil smile. “The thing is, we aren’t your rescuers.” He answered in English.
A million thoughts of what could happen to us raced through my mind and I was suddenly filled with fear. With our hands and feet bound tightly, the same three men picked us up and through us into the back of their jeeps like we were just a pile of old rags. We landed with a thud and Jason let out a grunt. The men blind folded us and the jeeps began moving. All hope of getting out of this alive now seemed to vanish. We were now in the hands of the enemy.
*gasps* what will happen next? lol
The ride on the jeep was not a comfortable one. It seemed like they hit every possible bump they could, on purpose. I finally managed to get my blind fold off and I looked around at what little space I had. Jason was on one side of me and Kylie was on the other. I sighed and laid my head back down. I don’t know how, but after a while I dozed off.
I was suddenly jolted awake by yet another bump that the jeep failed to miss. I had been awakened several times before and I tried to sit up. As I looked around, I squinted my eyes from the brightness of the sun. I noticed that one of the soldiers glanced at me, but he did nothing. Instead he just turned and looked the other way. My eyes adjusted to the light and I could see better, so I looked around again. There was nothing but desert and sand…….everywhere.
Zafar worked nervously at assembling some men for a rescue mission. He feared the worse for what they might find. He soon gathered enough men and he finished making the necessary preparations. After having two helicopters fueled and prepped Zafar and his men too off.
The two jeeps stopped and I looked up to see a series of buildings that were being used as a base by Kony and his men. The men got out of the jeeps and roughly pulled me and the others out.
“Hey, watch it!” Kylie angrily shouted.
The men proceeded to take off Kylie and Jason’s blindfolds and then untied our feet, but they let our hands remain tied. As we looked around Kylie and Jason shaded their eyes. Once their eyes were adjusted, the soldiers motioned for us to follow them. The rest of the soldiers walked in front of us and behind us. We were finally going to see their leader, but that was definitely the last thing on my list of things I wanted to do.
this was one of those shorter chapters.
We were escorted to one of the buildings (If you call being pushed around being escorted). Soldiers and other men stood at attention as we passed by. I looked to the front of our little group. “I guess the guy at the front must be real important.” I thought to myself. As we passed, the men they relaxed and went back to their duties. We approached a double door and two guards stood at attention and then opened the doors. We walked through them into a slightly dim lighted hall. The halls cleared as we got closer to the end. Except for two guards at the end of the hall standing in front of double doors, we were the only ones.
The two soldiers stepped aside as we reached the end of the hall. The leader of the group waved his hand and all the other soldiers left except him and the two standing by the side of the double doors. The two guards opened the door to reveal a whole communications room full of flashing lights and radio equipment. There was one left in the room, but he had his back to us. We walked into the room and the man turned around. I gasped when I saw who it was.
“Kony!” I whispered.
“Ah, I see you already know who I am.”
“For all the wrong reasons.” The boy replied.
“I see.” I grinned evilly. “By the time I’m done with you, you will know who I am.”
“I’m not afraid of you.” I scoffed.
“Oh, you will be, you will be.” He replied.
“Yeah right.” I spat on his boots.
Kony looked down at his boots and then back at me. I suddenly felt a hand slap across my face. I was nearly knocked off my feet, but Indulu caught me before I could fall back. I regained my balance and I looked up. My face stung all over and a I felt a trickle of blood run down from my lip.
A smiled played at Kony’s lips. He obviously liked showing his power. “You’d think he would have more respect.”
I looked him in the eyes. “You don’t deserve respect, you deserve to die.”
Kony looked infuriated and there was anger in his eyes. “Enough! Take this fool out of my sight! Take them to the cage!”
“The Cage? Is that the best he’s got?” I thought to myself. We would soon find out what it was.
