by, Adam Zaccone
The Beginning September 4, 2002
One day, a 12 year old boy named Adam Zaccone was sleeping in his room on his bed. Ring!.....Ring!.....Adam got up and picked up the phone. "Hello?" he said. "Hello, Adam. Are you up? Now get up and get dressed, you'll be late for school," it was his mom. "Yes mom, bye," Adam said, then he hung up the phone. He got his clothes and got dressed. When he went out of his room, he saw his sister, Amanda Zaccone, but before she could say anything, Adam said, "Can't talk! Going to be late for school! Bye!" Then he ran downstairs and got his backpack. He heard a car horn outside. It was Adam's dad. "Come on, Adam! Hurry up!" he said. "Hold on dad! School doesnt start until 8:10 and its 7:45! Geez!" Adam said back.He ran outside and got in the car.Adam got to school on time and he walked to the courtyard. Whenhe past the front doors, he heard a voice in his head. "Master, the portal will be ready for those 5 stupid little kids," it said. Then there was another voice, a raspy voice, "It better be, or it'll be your head for dinner! Now remind who those kids were, again!" it said. "Oh, yes the kids! Hehe...they are Jenna Lo, Laurie Hallick, Daniel Jackson, Amanda Zaccone," Adam face looked worried, "and Adam Zaccone," it said. Adam didnt know what to do. He was worried what'll happen to those kids? His sister? Himself? "The portal will be ready at exactly at 3:25.....today!!!" said the voice again. The, the voices went away and Adam got to the courtyard. He saw his old friends there. They were all going to 7th grade. "Hey, Adam!" said a kid named Josh. His other friends were Julio, Brian, Sean and Jarred. All of them were hanging out in the courtyard making jokes and laughing. "So, what did you do this summer, Adam?" said Julio. "Eh...nothing..." he replied. "Hey guys," Adam started saying, "if I tell you this, you swear to God you will not laugh? And if you do I WILL punch you!" The other guys looked at each other like Adam was weird. Then, Adam said, "Okay, well, while I was walking to the courtyard, I heard 2 voices in my head! They said they were going to make a portal or somthing and 5 kids will go through it and they were Jen..." he paused, "well the names aren't important right now, but I don't know what the portal's going to do of why it's happening," he stopped. The other guys were laughing so hard that they were crying. "Hahahaha!!!" they said. "Shut up!!! I mean it!!! It's true!!!" Adam said. Then, Adam went by then and punched them all in the face. "It's true," he said and now it was time to go inside. He seperated from the other guys and walked through the hallway to homeroom, which was band in the auditorium. Adam was hearing the voices again. "But Master, what if they meet the old which after they go through the portal?" said the voice. Then the raspy one said, "Then we will have to torture them even more!" Adam's looke worrioed and he wasn't paying any attention on where he was going. There was another person that wasn't paying attention a few feet away forn Adam and then....BOOM! They collided into each other. "Oh! Sorry! I wasn't paying attention," Adam said. " "No, it was me," it was a girl Adam bumped in to. "No, it was me," Adam said back. He helped the girl up. "I'm Jenna Lo," she said. Adam looked at her surprised. "I-I'm Adam Zaccone," he said back. They both looked at each other with surprise. "S-So have you been h-hearing the voices???" Jenna said. Adam nodded. "Oh..." Adam said, "Do you know a Laurie Hallick?" Yes, I do! She's right behind you!" Jenna said. Adam turned aroung and saw a punk girl. "Wait a second. I know you! Your in band and you play the flute, right?" Adam said. "Yup!" Laurie said. "So, Jenna, who's your new friend?" she said and winked at Jenna. "Laurie!!! This is Adam Zaccone," she said. "My sister in danger too..." Adam said. "Do you guys know who Daniel Jaskson is?" Adam said. "Nope," Laurie and Jenna said back. The bell rang. "Oh! I gotta go! Bye Laurie and Adam," she said and walked down the hallway. "Well, since we're in band I guess we have homeroom together," Laurie said. "I guess," Adam said. They walked into the auditorium and were seated by their teacher, Mr. Lanzerotti. He gave everyone their locker number and combination. Adam went to his locker and put his backpack in there. He then went back to homeroom. The bell rang and Adam checked his schedule. His 1st period was Literature, room 103.
Adam got to his first period class on time. "Made it," he said. He saw jenna and Laurie in the class as well. "Hey guys," he said to them. "Hi," they said back. The teacher walked in. " Hello, class! My name is Miss Picinic, pernounced "Pickinich." Everyone stand in the back of the class and I will seat all of you," she said. All the students went in back of the class, waiting for their names to be called. "First group will be," Miss Picinic began, "is Joe lee, Nicole Masuik, Sarah Rivera, and David Montroni." The four students sat at group #1. "The Second group will be Monika Kapitula, Sokoya White, Elizabeth Mendez, and Carlos Moran," Miss Picinic said. Adam knew Carlos in 6th grade. He was a very stupid kid and no body liked him. "Now, the last group will be, "Miss Picinic looked at the four remaining students, "Laurie Hallick, Jenna Lo, Adam Zaccone, and Daniel Jackson." The four students looked at each other and walked to their seats. "Um...well...hey, Daniel," Adam said. "This is," Adam was about to introduce Jenna and Laurie to him, but then Daniel said, "I know who you are. And I suppose you've heard voices?" They nodded. "Amanda is your sister I guess, right Adam?" he said. "Yup!" Adam said. A couple minutes later, Miss Picinic was explaining some things about the class. The bell rang. Adam's next class was music class. He got up and walked through the hallway.
Music class wasn't that much of a big deal. It went by quickly. Same thing with the other classes. 3rd period was Science, 4th Math, 5th Social Studies, 6th Lunch, 7th grammar, and 8th gym. The last bell rang for the last time and Adam met Jenna, Laurie, and Daniel at his locker. "We'll find out about that portal right now. As long as my little sister isn't here, she's safe," Adam said. They all went outside and Adam saw Amanda there. "Amanda, what are you doing here?" Adam said. "I heard these voices and I was scared and I didn't know what to do!!!" she said. She was almost in tears. Then, the 5 of them heard the voices again. "Someone has stopped the portal, Master!" the voice said. "What!? Who?!" the raspy voice said. Then they went away. "Well I guess we won't have to worry about the portal until we hear the voices again," Adam said. "I guess so," said jenna. Adam smiled at Jenna. Adam really likes Jenna, but he rather keep it a secret until he's ready to tell her. They all walked home and before they knew it, they had to go to bed.
7 MONTHS LATER

The Last School Dance
Adam knew everybody in all his classes now. He got to know Jenna, Laurie, Daniel, Sokoya, Elizabeth, and everybody else in his class. He really got to know Jenna a lot. Tomorrow was the last school dance and Jenna had no one to go with. "Hey, Jenna, uh.....since
uh.....er....nevermind," he said. Then Jenna said, "Um ok...?" "Well actually...." Adam started saying, "do you uh....uh.....want to....go....to....the.....the.....the....dance with ...me?" There was a pause. "I'll think about it," she said. "Oh...ok," Adam said. Two days later, Adam was on the computer. His screen name was Shadow8901. He saw Jenna's screen name, JLLJazz, on his buddy list. He IMed her. "Hey," he said. She said back, "Hey." "Did you make a decision yet?" Adam said. "Yes I did," she said back, "Yes! But we're not going out, though, right?" "No we're not," Adam said. Adam said he had to go and he said bye to Jenna and she said bye back and then he signed off. It was time to go to school. Adam saw Jenna at school and they smiled at each other. School went by fast. At 7:00pm, Adam went to the dance with his friends, Josh, Brian, Julio, Sean, and Jarred. He was suppose to meet Jenna there, but he couldn't find her. "Shit, where the hell is she?" Adam was thinking. He was looking around for her. He seperated from his friends to look for Jenna. He saw Jenna with her friend, Quincy. He went by her and said, "Hey, Jenna!" The music was loud so they had to shout out what they were saying. "Hi, Adam!" she said back. Adam said, "Come on!" They saw some of their friends on the dance floor. They saw, Bridget, Sarah, Nicole, and Melissa. Adam's friends didn't want to dance, so Adam danced with the girls. All 6 were dancing to the music. All of Adam's other friends wanted to dance, but they were to shy. So, when they saw Adam dancing, they danced too. After a song, Jenna and Adam went to get a drink. Sarah came along too. There wasn't that much talking going on. After the drink the dance was almost over. The last dance was the slow dance, but Adam had to leave. Jenna and Adam were next to each other. Adam was going to slow dance with her, but his friends came along and said they had to go. Adam wanted to dance with her, but he couldn't. "Er.....I got to go, now..." Adam siad. "Oh...okay. Bye, Adam," she said. "Bye," he said back and he and his friends left the last school dance.

Adam went on the computer in the morning and he saw that Jenna was online. "Hey," he said and she said hey back. "So...uh...i have a quesiton. If I didn't have to leave early....would you of slow danced with me?" She said, "Uh huh." Adam smiled. "I have another question.." Adam started, "did you like going to the dance with me?" "Yup. Actually it was the greatest one I every went to. At the other dances, I was just hanging out with my friends and not doing anything. Then when I went with you, I had a great time!" she said. "I have to ask you one more question..." Adam said, "do you want to...go out with me?" Adam was all nervous on what she was going to say. "YES!" she said at last. "Really?" he said. "Yeah," she said back. "Kool!" Adam said. "I got to go, now," Adam said and they both said goodbye to each other and Adam signed off. Adam was so glad that he was going out with Jenna.

Chapter 7 September 30, 2003
The Time Has Come
The school year for 8th grade has started. Adam's first period was Computer class in room 129 with Ms. Colca. He saw his old pal, Joe Witaker. "Hey, Joe!" he siad. "Hey, Adam!" he said back. Ms. Colca was a tall, skinny woman. She was really nice to the class. "Hello, everyine," she said. She explained more rules in the class. The bell rang and Adam looked at his schedule. His 2nd period was math with Mrs. Mullane in room 104. He found out what Jenna's second class was. It was Social Studies in room 103. So she was across from him. Mrs. Mullane looked like a nice lady. She was. She did the same thing with Mrs. Colca (explaining some more rules). Same with Mrs. Mariani, Science. After Science, it was lunch time. Adam and Jenna walked to the cafeteria together and saw their friend, Quincy. “Hey, Quincy,” they said. “Hey,” he said back. They sat down by thier other friend, D’yana. “Hey, guys,” she said. “Hey,” the three said to her. They sat down at a lunch table. They were just talking and stuff. Laurie came by the table and sat. “Hey, Laur,” they said. “Hey,” she said back. They all ate lunch and now it was time for ILT. Laurie, Adam and Quincy had band ILT, Jenna had ILT in room 131, Study. D’yana had ILT in room . ILT was over and now, Adam had Social Studies, Jenna had Algebra, Laurie had , D’yana had and Quincy had . Social Studies was kind of boring for Adam. He almost fell asleep. The bell rang, finally and Adam had 2 periods with Ms. Fabregas in room 116. Jenna, Laurie, Adam and Quincy were the same class together. The 2 periods went by fast and so did 8th period. Adam, Jenna and Laurie saw Daniel outside so they went by him. “Hi, Adam!” A little girl’s voice said it. It was Amanda. “Amanda, what are you doing here?” Adam said. “I don’t know. Just wondering off. Mom knows I’m here, so don’t worry. So, Jenna, I heard your going out with my borther?” she said. “Amanda, shut.....” But before Adam could finish his sentence, all 5 of them heard the voices again. “Master, the portal is reading now! Now! It is ready! Now! Master! Master! Master! The portal, the portal, it’s ready! Master!” said the voice. “I hear you, Gumri!!!” said the raspy voice and then, the 5 of them saw a vision of what happened. They saw the Devil and a little goblin sort of creature. The Devil took his black trident/pitchfork and a bright light came out of it and striked on Gumri. “Ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!” said Gumri. As soon as the smoke cleared, nothing was there but a pile of ashes from the little goblin, Gumri.
