This is a story I will be writing every single day until Christmas Day. Every day, I will reveal a part of the story, so be sure to check back on this thread. There will also be additional pictures for main events that happen during the story. I hope you enjoy! EDIT: Please don't be rude as say there is a billion mistakes. Every writer will have grammar mistakes. If the mistakes are SO annoying, please pm me, instead of replying to this thread. Thanks.Part I: The Retreat He had to run away. Taking Sarah with him, they ran into the woods. He was panting, very tired and hungry. He kept running, the terror on their faces showed so much emotions. However, his pain in his right leg made him trip, falling on the ground. "Cmon, get up. They might catch us soon. We don't want to run into any monsters either." Sarah explained, in a worried tone. Suddenly, an arrow zoomed past Sarah and nearly hit her head, but instead hit the leaves of a tree. They turned around, realizing that they were cornered by some mobs. They didn't have weapons, they had to abandon their homes. He drew out his iron shovel, protecting Sarah from the mobs. He explained to her,"Lets go up on that hill. We will have higher ground, we could push them off with our water buckets." Sarah nodded and they ran up the hill, zombies walking behind them. Arrows were flying everywhere as they ran up the hill. However, the hill turned into a cliff as they walked toward the edge. "Creeper!" Sarah yelled, but the explosion was too big. He and Sarah were flown backwards, knocking the water buckets out of their hands. "What do we do, Dylan?!" "Jump into the lake!" But, as they were falling down, he heard a loud screaming noise as he hit the water... PART II: The Past As Dylan was falling, he tried to remember how he got into the woods. Suddenly, the flashback occurred. A few hours ago, Blockington had their annual Christmas festival. Everyone in the town helped decorate the Christmas tree, putting the star, ornaments, and presents underneath the tree. After they were done, it looked magnificent. However, the Foxy Lord came down from the rooftops and stormed the tree. Using his staff, he hammered the ground as he shot fear with his facial expressions. He murmured something under his mouth, and zombies rose from the city streets, immune to the sunlight that was shining above the town.Everyone panicked, people ran into their homes, some were brave enough, but most of the townspeople were eaten, one by one. Dylan remembered that horrible moment, but his vision went black... PART III: Getting Help He forgot that he was still falling and landed his body in the sandy water. Dylan took in some of the water and coughed it up, while looking for Sarah."What was that screaming? Did you get hurt?""Oh, Dylan, I was afraid of heights. I didn't think we were going to jump off that cliff. So, what do we do now?""I know someone that can help us in this situation. We need to get moving, it is still night you know. We don't want more mobs. Sarah, I completely forgot I had torches, let me just light em.""Come on, lets go!"Dylan and Sarah walked swiftly throughout the woods. He felt like someone was walking behind them, but he had a secret. He was scared of the dark. The two survivors reached an open area surrounded by trees, with a house in the center. The house looked abandoned, which had cobwebs around it and no light from the inside. Dylan's torch gave a good view of the house, it was two floors, made of wood and some stone bricks. The fencing was broken down, grass looked like it was growing inside the house.The two nodded and they went in. They searched most of the rooms on the first floor until a loud groan came from upstairs. Dylan went first, following the sound. He reached for the door and opened it. He was shocked."Brian?! You are still here?"Brian responded in a sick tone, "I am withering." PART IV: The Split For the Sick "Dylan! Good to see you. I survived the attack, days ago.""I thought you were dead brother! Why is your house so old?" Dylan asked."I am very sick, I can't even walk around my house.""Then drink milk!""I can't, I have this curse that cures won't work except for these books.""What books? How will books help us? We are running away from the Foxy Lord! We are so tired."Brian shakes his head, realizing his brother's immature-ness."I found them in a dungeon, many years ago. The only cure that can help me combines a regeneration potion, XP bottles, a skull head, and a nether star. There are special locations with coords to find those items in those books.""Those items are so hard to get! Why do you have this sickness?"" I will explain later, will you help me? Dylan, we need to celebrate Christmas together, we haven't done so in years."Dylan nods and takes Sarah out the room.Dylan, in a very sad tone, asks, " Will you help me Sarah?""Thanks for saving me in Blockington. I owe you one, here it is.""If we split up, we could get those items faster. And save Brian's life."She agrees and they tell Brian their plan. They set out looking for the items, going in the opposite directions of each other. Both have no idea what is coming.As the survivors separated, leaving Brian at the house, will they have the courage to adventure on their own? Will Brian be safe from the Foxy Lord? Can our heroes survive and celebrate Christmas? When all seems to be going well, two more problems just began... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Part V: Dylan's Journey to Oldfield It was sunrise. A few hours since Sarah and Dylan separated, Dylan kept walking toward the town in the book. He wondered if the book would even help him, but he kept walking. He was very tired, wanting to go to sleep. Finally, he found the town, Oldfield. The town was very old, it was surrounded with a castle in the middle, with the local's houses surround it, protected by a cobblestone wall, 3 blocks high. Dylan waited until no one was watching, and climbed over the wall, using spare blocks. In the distance, he saw the king, who was giving a speech at the balcony of his castle. Everyone was looking up. Dylan looked up and was shocked to see what the king had around his neck. At the bottom of his necklace, the nether star, the item that Dylan needed to cure Brian. The King announced that he would take a short nap and attend to the town later. Everyone separated, while Dylan snuck into the castle, making a plan of the steal. He decided to climb up the walls, since the chimney led straight into the king's bedroom. Dylan was sure of this because the king had exited through that balcony. He eventually reached the top, and spider climbed down the chimney, trying not to make any noise. He set foot on the ground, but the king was awake staring at him. He thought he was just hallucinating, but the three guards were right next to him, one holding the nether star.Dylan couldn't escape, he surrendered."See, I told you guards, the outsider of another town was here to steal my nether star." the king explained. "Lock him up and question him." The guards did what the king had told them, dragging Dylan using a lead, went out of the castle... PART VI: Sarah's Trip to The Brewery She was still cold. That night was very cold, Sarah couldn't keep walking alone. She was happy getting to get the easy items, but the fear of monsters kept haunting her. The sun came up, marking the second day without sleep. She wandered into a desert, gathering twigs and stones on the way for a defensive ability. She spotted a sandstone temple building down below the sandy mountain. The building looked flooded with sand, and the doors were completely shut. She broke the door down with her fist. It looked like a grand hall with old carpets and tinted windows, with a small building at the end. Creepy noises came down that hallway, echoing into her ears. She opened the doors to the next room, seeing a bunch of potions lying on the floor."WHO ARE YOU?!" the sound said."I am Sarah, a local from Blockington, I just want to get a potion. Where are you?""Oh oops." The sorcerer revealed himself, using milk."What would you like to buy from the Mad Sorcerer today, missie?""I need a very strong regeneration potion." Sarah responded, nervously."I only have one of those left, that will be 20 diamonds.""20 diamonds???""You see, these potions are very hard to make.""Can I just get it for free?""If you will, you will NEVER come back here again. You are very annoying.""Fine."The sorcerer handed Sarah the potion and slammed the door behind her. The weird sounds continued and Sarah ran out of the hall. The next item she needed was a skeleton head. Skeletons spawned everywhere so it was easy to grab one. However, as she was pulling one off, a creeper blew up next to her, throwing the potion behind her, landing on another skeleton. She didn't realize too much until she remembered the sorcerer said:If you will, you will NEVER come back here again. She gulped and instantly became worried. How was she going to get another potion? The skeleton that got splashed mutated into a human.She screamed, as the human skeleton woke up and said,"Hello, my name is William..."
