Chapter 5

    Hal snapped his book closed and put it away. He washed his dishes, he made his bed, he ate his lunch, and he packed a suitcase full of food and some tools like a knife and a saw. Then, he strapped a sword to his belt and set off, locking his door behind him. He walked a meter and then he went back to his house and decided he would go in the morning.
    After eating a large breakfast, Hal set off… again. He told anyone on the street who would listen about his quest. A monster gave him a compass and a map. He met his neighbor creature, Granny Elise and she gave him a backpack and a muffin.
    Just on his way out the city, he met an ogre. “Howdy! Where yah goin’?” He asked.
    “I’m going to the wizard tower,” Hal replied. Then, the ogre hopped out of his monster truck and opened the trunk. He pulled out a wrapped up camping mattress and stuck it into Hal’s backpack.
    “Ya might need this,” he said.
    “Oh, that is so…” Hal started. But, before he could finish his reply, the ogre drove away, leaving Hal in a cloud of dust.
    Hal started walking again, out of the city. The city wasn’t very big, and it did not take long after the ogre left for Hal to set food on soft grass.
    Majestic mountains stood in front of him. Beside, beautiful blue and purple and green and yellow forests. Behind, was green grassland. Animals lurked around and birds chirped on high branches.
   He decided to go in between the mountains. It seemed like a good idea, but once he got half way through, Hal realized it wasn’t the best idea he had ever thought of. It wasn’t worth going all the way back through so he just kept going.
    A few minutes later Hal smacked himself in the face. He was just mad at himself for being so thoughtless of what was coming. A bird dropping fell on his head and thought of two words: hissy fit. That seemed to suit his feelings so he listened to them and carefully dropped his luggage off to the side. Then he moved a few metres away and started to yell and jump and get all his anger away.
    Two minutes later of punching the air Hal finally gathered himself up. He took all his luggage and hauled them over his back then he started to walk again at a quick pace but he was careful not to bump into the chalk like gray mountain sides.
    As he twisted himself through the narrow paths between the mountains he finally spotted light.

                                         Chapter 4

     "Is there anything we can do of your service?" asked Oaky.
     "Like that wizard thing," said Oaka sounding like she wanted Brandon to ask for advice.
      Brandon didn't feel like moving. First he ran into a giant ogre thing telling him to get to a wizard tower. How was he supposed to start talking to a pair of trees? Brandon moved his lips but nothing came out.
     "Let me help you," said Oaka tired of waiting for his answer. "The wizard tower is over there, and you will find it passed my friend Gobb. He's a rock and his nose is quite sharp. His face is kind of rough. Find him, the wizard tower is in your hands," She lifted a branch arm up pointing the direction of forest and hills.
     "Th-Thanks," said Brandon shakily.
     After the trees said goodbye, Brandon headed out on his search for the wizard castle. Every few minutes, a green and yellow tree would shout out at him when the blue a purple ones stood still and silent.
      He walked on until he could see a flat, flowery grassland. At the edge, was a large stone that was about the shape of a chair. Brandon sighed with relief as he sat down in the stone. he felt like he hadn't stopped walking in years. But, he also felt like he was being wiggled a jiggled around.
     "Who's there?" Boomed a voice.
     "It's me." Brandon answered.
     "Oh, you wouldn't of heard of me, I'm a human."
     The rock shuddered. "Come around to the front will you?" the voice said.
     Brandon noticed the voice was coming from the rock. So, he slowly walked around the side of the rock and saw a rough carving of a man's face in the rock. He fitted Oaka's description quite well.
    "Gobb?" asked Brandon.
     "It is he," said the rock
     "I was wondering if you could show me to the wizard tower," said Brandon felling silly of talking to trees and now a rock.
     "The wizard tower? Not for a slim, weak boy like you. Human child!" scolded Gobb.
     Brandon swished his brown hair to the side. This rock was getting offensive!
     "No, Oaka and, well... Oaky told me you could help me," Brandon insisted.
     "Oaka you say," Gobb said, a dreamy look coming across his carved face. "OK, tell me what you need."
      Now, Brandon knew how to convince Gobb. He spotted movement behind him in the forest, so he whispered "I need to go to the wizard tower. How many times do I have to tell you?"
     "I'll see what I can do," replied Gobb.

                                                Chapter 3

    "Why is people coming here bad? Only one person can use the portal so, one less manure can't be a big difference!" Thought Hal rolling his eyes. He lay on his bed thinking. Thinking of questions. What if this? How could that? He decided to get out a book. He selected a book called Magi land portals and all you Need To Know: A Manual. 

He flipped to page 32 All About Portals and  read:

  The portal: the portal is a small coin. The portal coin will transport you to the world famous Jan's shop. Every 4 years something magics the coin up to the human world and one human comes into Magi-land. The magician that sends the coin up is the wizard who owns the wizard castle. Why? You might ask. Well, we do this because one human can unlock the spell of  giantray, the beautiful giant queen of  Magi-land who was thrown under a mountain of hard materials called gentoriges. Only a human can break them and set our queen free.

Why is this bad: humans are mistreating our inviroment. They are chopping down trees and getting bad chemicals into water. Their world is already wrecked. Some trees are forbidden to be  chopped down because they release gentoriges. If the humans got our queen locked away, they should stay away from here.

Why is nothing being done: Although humans give us our power and electricity, the wizard insists on sending the penny up on hope to find the one who give us and our queen peace. 

Gentoriges: The gentotrees that got cut down are leaking gentoriges double the amount they have been on average. Magi police are not seeming to stop the wizard and the gentoriges are being found in some food and drinks all over Magi-land.

  “That is it!” Hal said. “I’m going to that wizard!”
