The Journey
By Chrishad Nash
It was a sunny, summer Saturday afternoon in Peoria, IL and Alonzo made plans earlier in the week to go hiking today in the creek by his friends’ houses. He brought water bottles, rope, a knife, some snacks, and a lighter. Anything else they might need he would gather at their houses. He met his friends at 9:00AM at the end of the cul de sac. One by one they showed up until all 8 friends were together. After everyone had arrived, they started their journey, entering the creek by the church that was across from the cul de sac.

The lettering was faded but it wasn't too hard to read; definitely not a cool find but it reminded Dylan that he brought a few 2 litres of Blue Fanta. They shared the drinks, downing all 4 bottles in 2 minutes, and continued on the journey. They stumbled upon an old bicycle wheel, stepped on a clay pot, and scratched themselves on some old tools.
The friends decided a couple torches along the way for fun. They started by gathering some dry grass and leaves to use as a base for the fire to get it going. Then, they gathered a bunch of small twigs to put on top of the grass and leaves so the fire would last for more than just a few seconds. One of Alonzo’s...
