The Lost – the dark ground By Gillian Cross


Thank you so much Mudassir, Fatima, Aalia, Sehrish , Hira Izma, Momeeza and Abu Bakar ! You all are amazing! Stay blessed !

The Lost – the dark ground
By Gillian Cross

Chapter 1
In the first chapter Zak was making Cam remember her Past and this was annoying Cam. She could not catch him because he was up on a tree branch. Cam became outrageous and all of them started to pull the tree and it fell down.

Chapter 2
Robert woke up on a plane and he was dreaming about something horrible. He just could not explain it to Emma because she would think that he is pathetic. Then Robert went to the toilet for brushing his teeth he just didn’t feel like himself and then everything exploded.

Chapter 3
In chapter 3 Robert woke up in the middle of nowhere. He wanted to find food and shelter so he started walking. He found some fleece so he made a cloth for himself. Then he settled in a bamboo clump. He immediately slept after it. After waking he finished his thirst by drinking water on the leaves and ate the seeds he found in his fleece.

Chapter 4
In this chapter Robert woke up so he was wet. He hung up his fleece so it could dry. Then he tried to remember what happened he thought that it might be alone crash. He decided that he would make a burrow and he was successful. He found a fur blanket in his burrow when he came back finding food and water.

Chapter 5
As Cam was the leader of the cavern so she noticed that the bat fur was missing from there. Because it was her job to perceive things. Dozens of things were to be observed just to keep life going on in cavern. Except Cam, her fellows also joined her in working hard. As a leader, Cam knows every inch of the cavern that what is happening inside, and that’s why she was able to spot that missing fur. Lorn was also a member of the same group, she was rearranging the other furs. Cam was noticing everything that Lorn was doing but she didn’t say anything to her. All her fellows were gathered in evening where Zak needs to tell his story. Cam stopped him and she went towards the corner where the furs were laid. She took one pair and came back to the circle and ask other fellows to do the same. Lorn at last stood up and picked up the last fur from there. Cam already knew that where the furs had gone. Perdew and Ab were angry. They had that bat tree for collecting the last two furs. Some of the others like Shang and Tina, the broken rule was the most important thing that can threaten their security. Bando was the only one who was unaware of what was going on. He was playing at the corner with the furs. Cam’s eyes were roaming round all the directions until she reached Zak who was sitting beside her. He met her eyes but no reaction took place over there. Now she had to make the decision on her own. She stood up leaving her furs over there; she walked slowly across the circle towards Lorn. After she stood, everyone started following Cam in silence. At a certain place away from the brazier, they all made a new circle. Zak hold Bando's arm and they both sat in new circle. Zak at last looked for everyone's attention and starts his story. Only Cam was looking at the red glare of the brazier. Lorn stood up for a moment for Zak to start his story. As he started, she knelt down and began to move the furs into a pile, folding them neatly with her quick adroit hands.

Chapter # 8:
Robert woke up and saw a figure coming close to him. The figure was of Lorn who came to take her leather bag pack. Robert wanted Lorn to lead him to the others but Lorn ran. He tried to follow her but she was too fast and she led him to the ravine. Robert fell, and couldn't walk properly. He found that Lorn had disappeared. He tried to cross the ravine and suddenly saw a black figure moving towards him and he knew he couldn't run away.

chapter # 9:
Robert was caught by an ogre bird which took him to its Den. Robert tried to run away from the bird and in the struggle he got badly hurt on his arm. The ogre bird was a carnivore. He had the feeling that his wound would get infected. He climbed on an oak tree and the bird didn't come after him. Robert started having illusions of his own house and started seeing all the things around his house. He was injured badly.

Chapter # 10:
"Kiuu", a bird sound, was heard by the people in the cavern. They immediately got to know that the bird had caught something or someone. Nate and Perdew the hunters, informed the cavern people that Robert was the one hunted by the bird. Zak and Cam argued about if Robert was dead or not?. Cam thought Robert being caught was Lorn’s fault while Lorn thought it was every one’s fault and not just hers. Cam finally agreed that if Robert was alive he could be in their group. She was still angry because she knew that if Robert was caught from here the bird would come again to hunt, and would kill them all.

CHAPTER 11


In chapter 11, Robert was feeling homesick as for a very long time he sat on the oak tree, not able to do anything, neither think nor move except staring at the impossible world around him. He was having illusions of food too. He actually had two realities clashing each other, the last moment in the aero plane and the very first moment in the dark wood. He wanted to find out the group of people. He was out of the den and climbing off the branch by the fear of ogre bird, by now he had reached to the ravine. Three people came to rescue him and they took him to the cavern. Cam came too as she was the leader and Lorn came to get the bat pack from Robert but Robert could not identify her. The other people were much smaller than Robert. In the last, Robert was given something to eat and then finally he slept.

Chapter 12:

Robert woke up surrounded by dozens of people. He tries to break free but they hold him down. They were burning his wounds to stop any infections from spreading through his body. He faints due to the unbearable pain. When he gains partial consciousness, he was able to recognize the people around him. Cam assigns him a job to keep the fire alight by the logs which were actually twigs. After a few days of doing so, Cam came to him that he had to help Lorn in plaiting. After six weeks, Zak brought out a drum and started drumming and humming Bando stands up picks up a leaf and presented it to Zak. Zak touched it with his mouth and ran his tongue along it. Cam signaled Robert to go next. He obviously did not want to go so Bando lifted him to his feet and dropped him in front of Zak. Zak question to Robert was that;
"Who are you?"

By Fatima sheikh 7A

Chapter#13:
As soon as Robert woke up he saw faces around him. Zak started asking him questions about him and his family. He was worried, trying to find answers of where his family had gone and what had happened?  He remembered everything and he was scared of the ogre bird. He wanted to go back home but everyone thought it was a bad idea. Zak had spiritual powers and Robert knew he would be named as well.

Chapter#14:
Everyone in the cavern were sleeping accept Tina and Perdew who were working and came, she went around the cavern all alone because she knew Zak would come. She suddenly heard someone call her real name. It was Zak who was trying to convince her to go with Robert but she knew that winter was near and it would be hard to to travel. Cam went back to the cavern and started thinking about what had just happened.

Chapter#15:
Robert woke up with his own voice echoing in his mind he was determined on his decision. He had to work with Bando and that's what he did. Robert tried to convince Nate to go with him; he thought Nate was his friend. Others were convincing Robert not to go and told the dangers, ravine, long wood, grassland, wires, animals and then finally the road but Robert's decision didn't change. Zak wanted Robert to forget his past and wanted to name him through his spiritual powers but Robert refused he wanted to be Robert no one else.

By Hira Faiz 7B




Chapter#16:

Robert woke up and announced that he still wants to go to his home and if anyone wants to come along then he is welcome and he wold start his journey after some preparations. Lorn tried to convince Robert to change his mind but Robert didn't listen to her. Robert tried to convince Lorn to come with him. Perdew and Lorn tried to persuade Robert to stay in the cavern rather than starting his journey to home as it would be dangerous for him. Nate told Robert that he wants to come with him and his real name is Steven. Nate and Robert started to collect food for their journey. Cam observed them secretly. She knew that the food wasn't enough for them but she didn't say a single word.Rain started. Whenever it stopped raining they all went out to collect water. Cavern got chaotic. Zak , Cam would also be going with Nate and Robert. Cavern people are surprised on this decision.

Chapter#17:

All the members of cavern did preparations for the journey. The journey was difficult. The temperature was dropping. They couldn't make fire. They also had to find different shelter every night. Each one of them was holding a long stick with a piece of tin at top. They could use it for protection and attacking. Perdew advised Robert to hit it in the eyes of a someone rather than hitting it on skin because it won’t harm skin or bone. They started their journey. They followed Cam. Cam worked out the way by seeing, smelling and listening. They ate and rested then continued their journey. As they began to approach end of long woods a bird came. They lied as still as a stone on the ground. The bird dragged a serpent from the ground then went. Zak told them that there would be worse situations through which they would have to go. They crossed the long woods and reached the start of grassland. Ahead was dense forest where they had to reach to spend the night. They waited till night then crossed grassland one by one as fast as they could. After reaching the dense forest, they climbed trees and sat on the branches then ate food. Cam told them that Zak will watch first then she will and after that Robert will watch then they slept.

Chapter#18:

Everyone in the cavern was unhappy because Zak, Cam, Nate and Robert left them on their own to survive. They all wanted to know that how much they would take to return back. Lorn explained that the journey is very long so they would take 7 to 8 months to return back. With the help of log Lorn drew a line from the brazier to the entrance of cavern to explain the long distance Zak, Cam, Robert and Nate would be traveling. Bando put 4 pebbles imagining that they were Zak, Cam, Nate and Robert. They thought that they would move those stones every day. Lorn thought that it was silly but then she realized that it was like a game the way Zak made them play.

Nate’s real name is Steven and he is been missed by Robert, Cam and Zak . Cam described her as the best hunter and Robert said “he helped him while he was sick.”
Chapter22=
The weather is quite cold in the morning. Bando was having illusions. Lorn had rearranged the stones, suddenly Bando woke up and he was very angry. Out of 4 stones he has thrown 1 stone and only 3 stones are left that means out of Robert, Cam , Zak and Nate 1 has to be in trouble.Lorn was then sleeping near the tunnel but her leg was numb.
Chapter23=
Robert felt cod and he could hear vibration’s in the ground. They’re very near to end their journey.When they came near so they got into a new trouble that is to cross the road.

chapter 26:
In chapter 26, lorn is very upset. she is recalling the days spent with Robert. the weather was too cold and she was unable to cope with it. lorn then started to cry. bando came and started to give a good company to lorn, he tried to console her. they were moving the stones too, the stone which indicated Robert was quite different and special. they came to know that Robert has reached his home. lorn now started to like Robert. after this bando and lorn went to sleep.
 
chapter 27:
robert has reached his home but the normal life which he lived with his family was now vanished. he was overwhelmed by the severe circumstances of his life like shrinking in size on the other hand, Robert is nominated as the new leader as he is strong, brave, clever, determined and intelligent. moreover zak and cam claims that now cam will not last longer so Robert should be elected as the new leader. cam will not last longer as there are extreme conditions like less food, small size and harsh winter. robert thinks that they should make a picture from marigolds which are most favorite flowers of Emma. cam disagrees with the idea but then zak convinced her. now they started to make the picture in order to grab the attention of Robert's family members.
 
by Sehrish Ahmed 7A 
 
 chapter 28, the lost :
Cam wasn't satisfied with the picture idea but Robert convinced her. Then the whole night the three fellows worked hard and made the picture using marigolds and stinkos. They stuck the flower petals on oil leaked from the storm machine(car) and when they were hungry they ate marigolds which were used by Emma for cooking. Then till the morning they had finished the picture and saw bid round school shoes coming towards them, Roberts recalled that these shoes belonged to Emma, he hoped she would notice the picture.
 
By Momeeza Binte Saeed 

Chapter#31

Robert had returned to his normal size, but he was unconscious. Emma was scolding him under her breath as she was getting late for school. Robert gained consciousness but he was too tired to stand on his feet and Emma was dragging him. Emma felt worried and asked Robert if he was alright but he could'nt answer, his body was weak and he was sick of Cam and Zak's memory, shrinking away from him. Emma finally dragged him to the kitchen, where Robert slept for almost two hours. When Robert woke up, he immediately got to know that Emma looked confused and that she was worried. Emma told him that, for a second she had seen two Roberts. After hearing this, Robert told Emma everything that happened. He thought that she wouldn't understand anything but she did, most of it. Emma and Robert decided to help the people in the Cavern together. They knew they had to start now before it's too late.
