Otose: Ya! First Co-written story ever for the both of us! :D
RavenLyon: I know this is going to be so much fun!
Both: Welcome to our story! Hope you enjoy! This story is dedicated to Spanish sunrise and our 8th grade history teacher Mr. McConnell! On with the story!
Otose: Note that we changed our names and age and grade, are we older or younger? You don't know, but we do!
I yawned. 'Bored' I thought looking around the museum. Where we're we may you ask? Our history class was on a 'Field trip' to a museum all about the civil war. I looked over to Natalie, she was reading a plaque. I smiled, Nat and I have been friends since 7th grade, and we are in 11th grade, meaning that we were both 17. Though our lives got a bit weird one day during 9th grade, I showed Nat a drawing of two characters I drew, their names: Roger and Isabel*. Then we saw a flash of colors and they were ALIVE!
We freaked of course and worked things out, the cool thing was that the things I wrote that they can do, they really can except for Bell magic. Bonus? We could only see them.
I heard Mr. McConnell talk about something, I wasn't paying attention, normally I loved history, Nat too, but we were bored.
"Roger, your heavy get off my head." I whispered looking up. Yes the drawings asked to come along, and we agreed. They were in their chibi form which made it easier for us at time, instead of them being tall as us, or taller in Roger's case. I heard Nat chuckle, she had Isabel on her shoulder. Roger got off and into my backpack.
"Better not drink our Gatorades" I grumbled. It was tradition right their, when ever Mr. McConnell would take us somewhere, we learned to bring a bag of candy and something to drink, it was Nat's turn to buy the candy and me the drinks. We also had a note book, pen and pencil, along with our ipod's and ipod speaker.
We continued walking through the hallway somewhat listening to Mr. McConnell talk about the civil war. It was getting hot so I took of my red jacket and tied it around my waste. Showing off my black power puff girl t-shirt. Nat was still wearing her jacket, which I dubbed 'the magic jacket' it was black with purple and a dark blue. She had a black tee under her jacket.
We went into a room with statues and replicas of cannons, soldiers, and such. We stopped in front of a life like statue of a soldier, oddly it seemed familiar. We kept staring it, we heard our class leave. We kept staring, something was compelling us to stare and wait.
Then we felt a gust of wind, then the wind started to circle us like a tornado and we were on the inside.
"What's going on!" Nat yelled grabbing Isabel, to make sure she wouldn't fly off.
"I don't know" I yelled back the wind getting harsher. We locked arms incase that we would fly we wouldn't separate. The wind picked up getting faster and faster making us close our eyes. Then it stopped, it just suddenly stopped. We opened our eyes and found our selves in the middle of what looked like some type of medical tent. We were freaking out, where were we!
"Hey you two!" Shouted what we assumed was a Doctor, "Don't just stand their! Start helping!" And walked off to help some wounded soldier.
We were rooted to our spots and kept staring. We then heard a scream of 'please no', 'not my leg please!' we jumped and turned to see the shadow of a man lying down, with two people holding him down and a doctor sawing his leg off. We walked backwards not understanding what was happening; we bumped into something and heard a 'thunk' we turned around and screamed. We bumped into a barrel, but the barrel was filled with cut off limbs and we saw red liquid seeping out. Natalie and Isabel looked sick; Isa quickly crawled into Nat's backpack. I couldn't stand it anymore, the smell of blood, sweat, and death, I grabbed Nat and we ran out of their, but not before I quickly locked eyes with a soldier who was getting his neck checked, while running out of their. We ran to the outside and caught our breath near a clothes line. We breathed heavily trying to take in fresh air.
"Where are we?" I asked.
Natalie shook her head, probably trying to clear her mind. Roger and Bell poking their heads out. I took off my backpack and set it down, Natalie did as well. Roger and Bell got out but stayed in their chibi form.
"I don't know." She finally said. I started to think. Ok, we landed in some type of medic camp, there were soldiers in blue, and we saw that they have bad hygiene.
"Nat?" I asked.
"Did you notice that, the people in there were soldiers dressed in blue?"
"I did, I also noticed the lack of hygiene the doctors had."
"And we seem to have traveled back in time"
"Which is weird, but using the information we just gathered…"
We both looked at each other surprised and shouted.
"We're in 1860's!" We said.
"Holy crap! How did that happen?" I asked.
"I don't know!"
"What are we gonna do? We're two teens from the year 2010! Not the 1860's! We're gonna screw something up in the time stream!"
Nat smacked me behind the head, shutting me up.
"Calm yourself! We'll find a way to get back home."
I looked around and noticed something.
"We need new clothes."
"Why-Oh! Right we stick out." Nat said looking at her clothes.
I looked at the clothes line, we had some options, their was pants or trousers as they called them in this time, shirt, or the dresses that the nurses put out to dry.
"I'm not wearing a dress." I said. I grabbed a shirt and pants then I saw the jackets that the soldiers wear and took that too.
Natalie thought about and grabbed what I grabbed. We took turns hiding behind a tree and changed. We looked like soldiers.
"What about us?" Asked Isabel.
"No, you guys need to stay in chibi form." Roger and Isabel pouted but got in our packs. We picked up our packs and put them on.
"What do we do?" asked Natalie
I looked over and saw a black horse. I walked towards it and patted the horse.
"How about we hitch a ride?" I said.
Natalie gave me a look.
"I can ride a horse! Beside we need to get out of here."
I got on the horse and helped Natalie up. We were about to leave, until a young soldier came.
"Please, help me" he said holding his arm. We looked at each other and nodded. We got off and looked at his arm. It had a huge gash on it.
"I think we're going to need water a cloth, and bandages." Natalie said.
I got up and snuck into the tent I found bandages but clean water and cloth? Nope, that is until I asked a nurse to bring me some to drink and to clean with. She brought me a canteen and clean cloth giving me weird looks. I thanked the lady and went back to Natalie and the soldier.
"I got the items!" I said.
"Thanks!" Natalie said. She got the cloth and poured some if the water on it and cleaned the wound. I grabbed the canteen and poured some of the water into his mouth, he seemed really thirsty. After Natalie finished cleaning his wound, I grabbed the bandages and wrapped up his arm.
"Thank you," Said the Soldier, "My name is Wesley." (Pronounced west-lee)
"I'm Natalie." Said Nat, I looked and I could tell she thought this boy was cute. I really looked at him. He had brown hair and eyes, his face looked soft but it was marred with scratches and black soot.
"I'm Janet, or Jane." I said.
We all smiled both Nat and I knew we would be friends with this boy and we did, he helped us, but we said that all three of us have to be together. Little that we knew that the invite Wesley got one day at the camp we were sent to would change our lives and history.
