Chapter 4:The Story Continues
Whats gone with that boy, I wonder? You NED!
The old woman pulled her spectacles down and looked over them about the room; then she pulled them up and looked out under them. She seldom or never looked through them for so small a thing as a boy, or young man for that matter; they were her state pair, the pride of her heart, and they were built for style, not serviceshe could have seen through a pair of stove lids just as well. She looked perplexed for a moment, and then said, not fiercely, but still loud enough for the street to here:
Well, I lay if I get hold of you Ill,
But as a matter of fact Ned wasnt home, in fact he hasnt been home all night; his grandmothers cries are just wasted in the mornings chill. But before her worry begins to truly set in, let us take a journey to the place where Ned truly lies, and we shall experience the possibl
Reflections on Grade 12This yearReflections on Grade 126 years ago in Open More Like This
Is everything Ive worked for
For twelve years.
Ive moved forward, climbed upwards
Trying my best to reach this year.
Now Im here.
Just a few more months
And Im done
Ive reached my goal.
Isnt this every students dream?
Trying for years
Reaching what you aim for
Arent you supposed to feel proud of yourself?
But now that Im here
Ive climbed the mountain
And Im looking over the other side.
I can see the plunge
But I cant see the ground its cloudy below
And I know
I may not be able to hold on to
Those who climbed here with me
When I go over the edge.
Ill be flying by faith alone
Believing that the ground is there
And for the first time
Ill be flying by myself.
Is this the independence Ive strived for?
I hate it.
I want to go back
But I cannot reverse time
The wind pulls me on.
Soon Ill be hurtling over the edge
Chapter 16: SchoolThree weeks had passed since the Back to School Festival and Zapblapomans first encounter with Evil Hamburger. The first of September was only two days away. ZBO-Man had been busy ensuring that the crime levels in the City of Champions were at an all time low. While Zapblapoman was doing this, it was Ned who was actually ensuring that he was prepared for the school term directly ahead of him. Ned got the eye contacts, and did all of the appropriate alterations to allow it to fit comfortably on the lens of ZBO-Mans eye. He bought all of the utensils that he would need in school. It was very essential that Zapblapoman kept up his reputation as a super hero, as well as inhibit all suspicions of his newly concocted secret identity.Chapter 16: School6 years ago in Humor More Like This
A couple days after Zapblapoman got back from Red Deer, Ned and him were having a conversation and the mention of his new identity came up. In going back to school you can hardly expect me to go by the name of Zapblapoman. As much as I hate to

The blank paper of life
Heeding no one.
A stream of words becomes a river
Carrying us away from all
Farther with each passing day
A new home
A new friend
A new feeling
Swirling together, but only seen
Soon lost as we rush past.
And more powerful than anything.
A friends marriage
A firstborn child
A face the river of time has carried away,
Never seen again.
All mingling in the waters
Mixing with hopes and dreams
Lost or left behind long ago.
The ringing of laughter, the splash of falling tears
The only thing that will never change is change itself
The river flows on

Zapblapoman finally got a bit of shuteye. Flurada scouted the area and Ned gathered the necessities. The landscape was basic to what you would expect the mountains to be. There were mountains; and trees; and animals; and streams of fresh water, unlike those streams of salt water; and cliffs. Yep, it was the mountains. Fish was abundant. Herds of Elk were everywhere. A lot of pretty birds flew everywhere. The sky had a few clouds littered across its wide expanse.
Ned searched through the forest for all edible and essential things. Edible such as berries, fish, and water. Essential things such as wood and bedding. He wandered around for a while until he had a bundle of leaves, a basket of berries, and a large jug of water. The berries were set aside as he began the procedure of purifying the water.
He set the water to boil, all the while having a large contraption designed to catch the vapour and allow it to drip into a container that would hold the pure water. He took some of the pure w
