His name was Jonny crest, and hers was Milly camble, and they loved adventure...doesn't everybody?...actualy, there was this one time, that i met an old lady, that hated adventure, and just stayed in here little house, all day. I think it was because she was scared a big rock might come falling from the sky, and squish her...but i doubt that a rock would ever come falling from the sky, and kill somebody...hold on, i'm getting a call..."Yes...mhmm, you don't say, mister fred just got killed from a rock falling from the sky?...wow...give my condolences to his family"...well, as i was saying...haha. I guess anything could happen. But were not talking about rock's falling from the sky, are we, i was just about to tell you of an adventure that Jonny crest and Milly camble had...a long time ago...
A long time ago, when your great-great-great-great-great grandfathers dog, was just a puppy, there lived a boy. Now there was more then one boy then i am about to talk about, but the boy i'm about to talk about, is the main person in this story.
Now, this young boy's name was Jonny crest. He was a wander. Which meant, he went around having adventures all day, and never getting back home in time for dinner. For he had no home, or he would have gotten home in time for dinner. And this is why he become a wanderer. Now in the part of the world where Jonny lived, wanderer's weren't the happiest people, but they did have some fun adventures.
One day, while Little Jonny crest was walking, he came upon...something. He just couldn't figure what this "something" was. If i or you were in his place, we would have known this paticular thing, that Jonny was looking at, to be a stick. But Jonny had never seen a stick, for he had never come into the forest before now, and there were no trees where came from. And so, he thought to himself, which he did alot. "I wonder what this peculiar thing is...could it be a snake...noo, it doesn't move." Jonny crest was mesmerized by the simplest of things, and this simple stick, was keeping him occupied. Which was good. It was never a bad thing, to be doing things.
While Little Jonny crest was staring intently at this stick, not daring to touch it, there came upon the road a knight. The reason that i am telling you about this knight, is because he is about to unexpectedly come upon Jonny crest, and scare Jonny half out of his mind. Which was not that hard to do, for like i said before, Jonny was staring intently at the stick, not darin-...ohh i don't have to do the whole thing over again.
Now, because of Jonny's intent staring, he didn't not notice the knight, untill it was almost to late. For, this knight was not a nice knight, like knights should be, but he was a bad knight, and he loved to do cruel things. And he noticed poor Jonny crest, before Jonny noticed him.
Now the name of this cruel knight, was dimpy, which is the name that his mother gave him, when she birthed him. He was dressed in all black armour, which made him seem even more cruel. But, to top it all off, dimpy had a very pointy sword, to go with his very cruel self.
Now, like i said before, Jonny crest did not notice dimpy untill it was almost to late. And even then, Jonny crest was very close to having his head cut off, but off course he didn't have it cut off, for this is a kid story, and that would not be good for little kids to hear. But dimpy was ohh so close. He was so close, that when he swung his sword at Jonny crest, Jonny ducked his head just in time, and the sword cut off some of Jonny crest's hair. Which made Jonny crest's hair look very funny indeed.
But because dimpy missed Jonny crest's head. dimpy decided to be cruel, just not as cruel as he wanted. He had seen Jonny crest looking at the stick, and he had decided to break it, for he was cruel...like i have been telling you. When he cut Jonny crest's stick in half, Jonny cried. Not a wailing cry, but a silent cry. After destroying his stick, dimpy decided to leave, and leave he did.
After dimpy had gone, Jonny crest just sat on the ground, staring longingly at the stick. This time he wasn't scared of the stick, and so he walked up to it. When he got to it, he picked up the two piece's, and held them in his hand. And then he got angry, VERY angry. Which is never good. And he really wanted to go beat up dimpy...even tho he knew he could never win. But he didn't go, he just let his anger dissipate, which is always a good thing to do.
And almost right when he was no longer angry, and about to go walking again, he heard a sweet voice singing a song.
"Ohhhh...i once was a little maid, trying to find my way.
But then i came upon the meanest...GUY IN TOWN.
he did make fun of me so, and so i ran away.
And now here i am, walking along the road,
trying to find my way, AS A WANDERER!"
Jonny crest looked towards the voice, and saw a young girl, not much younger then he was. And then he looked at the two piece's of stick, and back up at the young girl...and then he had the perfect plan.
"Hello miss, my name is Jonny crest, and i was wondering, if you would come play with me and have one the peices of this stick...and keep me company, as my companion?" The girl was startled, but when she saw who had spoken to her, she decided that he was quite safe.
"My name is Milly camble, and it is good to see you on this wonderful day. And..." she paused, put on the biggest grin that Jonny quest had ever seen, and ran straight into his arms. "I WOULD LOVE TO JOIN YOU ON YOUR QUEST." The two fell to the ground, arms entwined. After a little while, of wrestling in the grass, the two got up, Jonny crest in the lead, and Milly camble right behind him. READY FOR ANYTHING.
And now, for the moral of the story...life might come to destroy your things, but somtimes, if you are patient, those destroyed things, could be the start of a great friendship.
AND SO ENDS THE FIRST STORY OF JONNY QUEST&MILLY CAMBLE: THE FIRST ADVENTURE ,OR, THE ADVENTURE WITH THE STICK.
