Chapter 1:

The Lost book of the Nether


Cameron stepped back in a flinch. A book fell from the ground.

Cameron is a 10th grade student. She was searching for a book called “The History of the Nether.” Cameron looked around, hoping no one saw her. She was searching in a restricted area of the library. Almost no one remembers the history of the Nether, and she wants to find out. She picked up the book that fell and realized it was the one she was looking for!

“Wow…” Cameron gasped.

She opened the book with awe. It was extremely old, and a few pages were missing, but she didn’t really care… she finally found it!

“Let’s see what we have here…”

Cameron flipped through the pages slowly, skimming through it.

Suddenly, she got to a page that started glowing.


The book fell back to the ground with a thud as she stepped back, wondering what just happened.

She suddenly heard someone walking and ran to a corner.

She huddled up against the side, hoping no one would notice her and leave.

“Is anyone there?” a voice said.

It sounded like an old woman, most likely the librarian.

The woman picked up the book and looked in it. She looked around again, seeing if anyone was watching her. The woman didn’t see anyone.

After a few minutes, the woman left the room and Cameron got up, brushing herself off of all the cobwebs she was squatting in.

Cameron quickly ran out of the room, not wondering what to do about the book.

As she left, the sun poured over her face like an ocean of sunlight, and she ran to her house.

“Mom?” she asked.

A middle-aged woman with curly, brown hair and green eyes opened.


Cameron’s mom looked worried and distressed.

“Sorry Mom… I uh… had a project to uh, research. Really important.” Cameron replied.

“I thought you were lost! I alerted the mayor!” Cameron’s mom replied.

“Mom. I was gone for an hour! Just an hour! Besides I was with um... Connor. Yeah.” Cameron huffed.

Connor was Cameron’s best friend. They were friends since birth, their moms were best friends also. Connor went to the same school as Cameron. Connor was always getting into trouble and never studied, he was one of those children that never followed rules. Cameron was the exact opposite; she loved studying and always did what she was told. Surprisingly, they get along very well. They barely have any arguments, and their moms are also best friends.

“Connor? Oh good. I’ll just tell his mom that you two are finally studying!” Cameron’s mom replied.

“What?! No, no uh, you can’t do that. Connor told me t-that his mom is um, she’s at the spa, she won’t get your call.”

“Oh. Alright. I’ll just make lunch.” Cameron’s mom said.

Cameron walked upstairs into her room and fluffed up her pillow. She fell on her bed with an exasperated sigh. She rolled over and stuffed her face into her pillow, trying not to think about what happened in the library. Though, she felt that she should check it out again...
